False Advertising

I was going through my pictures and also forgot about this fun little story. We were looking for a bottle of champagne and thought we'd give this little grocery store a try. Small town grocers usually have a couple bottles of wine type products, right?
Photobucket
Aisle 1: beer.
Photobucket
Aisle 2: beer.
Photobucket
Aisle 3: wine!
Photobucket
Aisle 4: mixers.
Photobucket
Not shown: the liquor shelved across the entire span of the 4 aisles. We did find a couple bottles of champagne but contrary to the sign, there was not a speck of food in sight.

Fashion Friday

Wow, what a week! After 4 weeks to teaching 4 days a week, working to create a new position for work, doing my job, and subbing for Work Kim while she is on vacation, I am beat! But as I type this, I am sitting at the coffee shop after a jog around Tabor and a shower and working from here this morning. Later, I am off to get a massage to thank this ol' bod of mine that works so hard for me. I have to admit, yesterday I wore jeans and a tank top and my running shoes since I knew I'd be tied to my desk all day. But I did manage to look nice earlier in the week. I guess the heavens were shining on me in approval :)

This was a great hot weather work outfit. It was comfy, simply a tank and skirt, but the drapey vest added some coverage and flow. Man, I love those shoes. I also love how this picture makes our yard look so green and luxurious. I'm not going to show you the rest.

I love pairing black and brown and this was a great way to showcase this cute little amber colored glass seahorse necklace my mom brought me from Hawaii.

Party!

This weekend, we went to a super fun party at Nick and Kim's. We got there early so Kim and I had to be the brave ones to test the bouncy house.

and John manned up for the dunk tank.
Photobucket
Ha!

Man circle.

The dunk tank was awesome.

Something cute is that John loves Tracy and Trevor's little boy, Thatcher. Here they are bonding in the bouncy house.
Photobucket
That's a happy little boy :)
Photobucket
and then all the other kids joined them. Here's poor John trying to escape.
Photobucket
Resistance is futile.
Photobucket
What a perfect day for a great party!
Photobucket
This is probably going to be part 1 of 2 because I'm just waiting for Tracy to post her pictures so I can steal some :)

Fashion Friday

I just don't have the right pair of blue shoes..  I have a shiny navy platform and a pair of sequin pumps (Hi, 80s!), so I had to get creative when I wanted to wear this blue shirt.
Photobucket
I love when my hair can be an accessory so I decided to just go all the way and added a red headband, bracelet and shoes. To complete my all-American look, I put on my festive cherry earrings (George Washington chopping down the cherry tree, get it?) and giant white purse.
Photobucket
America, Fuck Yeah!

...and it opened up my eyes.

Yesterday I had a yearning to be waking up somewhere in the middle of nowhere and riding for the day to land in the middle of another nowhere. On those fantastic days on the road, we see a lot of signs. This one from Fairview makes me happy.
Photobucket
Budweiser Clydesdales?

Hubba hubba

Something about Montana is that they are serious about their meth warnings. We passed about a hundred "meth..not even once" signs that ranged from billboards to homemade signs nailed to roadside fences. Then we ran into meth truck...
Photobucket
whoa. They also like their anti-abortion signs, so there's lots of pro-life signs. This creative sign maker tied the messages together in one giant barn painting!
Photobucket
This looks like the best lunch place ever! it was someone's house.
Photobucket
Cute.
Photobucket
We had to drive past this one twice to take it all in. I like imagining the person who came up with the idea busting our their stencils and paint to create this flag uterus sign to display in front of their house.
Photobucket
This is kind of scary. When I was in 7th grade, I'm pretty sure our art competitions were about recycling and I kind of yearned for that to be the case again when I saw this.
Photobucket
Wait, what? Why?
Photobucket
Oh.
Photobucket
At least they are using all the parts after they kill it..
Photobucket
Clever, those who make church signs.
Photobucket
Jesus is totally going to want his picture by this wall when he comes back.
Photobucket
"Hey"
