One of the best parts about today was that I found a pack of Orbit Wintermint gum in my desk.

One of the best parts about her day is this:

It's all about perspective, people.

Reason to Celebrate 8.5.2011

I guess it's been a while.

But I've got some news. Big news.

I'm engaged.

To a boy. A very, very nice, cute, amazing, wonderful, fantastic, exciting, attentive, spiritual, funny, silly, adorable, sweet, kind, smart, thoughtful, hard working, perfect boy.

This boy:
(That's us on top of the Space Needle in Seattle. Awh.)

Do you know what this means?

I'm getting married.

Stay tuned, friends. And celebrate with me.

Because this is kind of a big deal.

Killer Heels

This morning I was hobbling to work and was stopped by the most polite young gentleman.

"Wow, I still haven't figured out how women have learned to walk in those stilts" he commented.

"Yeah, well, neither have I."

Hence the hobbling.

Twenty One

"What am I if not ridiculous?"

I got flowers.

And they're even prettier in real life.
Believe me, I'd know. This is just a phone-shot.

I'm celebrating.

America, America...

Osama bin Laden.
Here's how people are "celebrating".
Yes, he was an awful, awful, horrible terrorist.
Yes, it's a huge deal that he's gone.
Yes, I'm just as relieved as you.
Yes, I'm completely and absolutely grateful for our brave troops who have fought for us.
But must we stoop so low?

I'd like to think America has more class than this.
I'd like to think that we're above this.
That we're better than this.
Wouldn't you?
And frankly, I'm more than a little disgusted and ashamed that Americans act like this.

We are not petty.
We are not small.
We are proud.
We have honor.

And we are better than this.

I'm proud to be American.
And I'm certainly relieved that bin Laden is finally gone from this world.
But I'm not proud of this exhibition.

Stand taller. Show more poise. Have more dignity.
Prov. 24:17-18 "Do not gloat when your enemy fails; when he stumbles do not let your heart rejoice, lest the Lord see it and it displease Him..."
God bless America.
