who's that girl?

It's Meghan!

(If you get that reference, then you're my kind of people.)

The classic "self-portrait in bathroom mirror" shot.

Trying without the mirror.

Neither picture is true to the new color (Where's Franklin when you need him?), but you get the idea.

Darker. Richer. Auburn-y-er.

Thursday, December 15, 2011


The blogging thing has obviously fallen to the wayside, even after a blogging challenge from a friend. That being said, I'm going to tenuously keep this sucker alive by temporarily re-purposing it as a wish-all-of-my-friends-a-happy-birthday site.

And with that I bring you...




He's the one on the shirts.

outta here

Tomorrow Kelley and I are going up to the Poconos for a romantic relaxing long-weekend.

Did you know that the Poconos were once the "Honeymoon Capital of the World?"

Our unit has a jacuzzi.

Oh please, oh please, let it be heart-shaped.

baby steps

My friend over at The BernOut has challenged me to write a post a day during the month of December. And to that I say... no.

But... I will post. Not sure of the frequency, but I will return. A 3month hiatus is enough, right?

Anyway, my first official return post will be to wish my dear friend Dave a wonderful birthday.

So wish that:

... for some football?!

I am.


And have been for a long time.

room find #5

As I clean out my old room I will post some of the finds here.

Today we're going to church.

Some back-story: I grew up going to a church in Vienna some 20minutes away. This meant that I didn't really know anyone in my religious education classes. All of these other kids went to school together and knew each other. But no one went to Dogwood with me. I was the lonely Reston kid. This all changed during 8th grade confirmation classes in which Kristin (also a Reston-dweller) and I found each other. We didn't really know each other well at that point, but to just. know. someone. was fantastic enough.

The point of the story is this: No other Reston kids during elementary school, but during middle school there was finally someone I knew from outside of church.

Given all of that, imagine my surprise when I ran across a list of the other kiddos receiving their first communion in 1990:

There are a few other familiar names there (Amy Kneuven, anyone?), but most notably is KRISTIN DELO. And this was back IN 2ND GRADE. We didn't know each other, but oh man, then if we could have just made the connection, weekly Catholic classes for the next SIX YEARS would have been much more tolerable.

And Kristin... always remember to grab, squeeze, pull, twist, and as a last resort, bite.*

*I'll explain that to the rest of you in a later post.
