Instax Love!

So this weekend was good but Sunday-Monday? Not so hot. I had several cooking disasters on Sunday followed up by a massive migraine that continued into Monday. NICE!
But today there was happy mail waiting for me at the post office! My new baby!
After work i took her out for a spin.

I'm in love with my new instax mini....any name suggestions? She's tiny, cute and from japan!

Polaroid Love

I shot my last few polaroids Sunday. So SAD that they don't make polaroid film anymore...I am hopeful about The Impossible Project. In the meantime I ordered this little sweetie to hopefully fill the gap.

She's a fuji instax mini. Pretty!

Can we discuss the fact that 10 minutes ago I went into my kitchen and saw THIS on the sink without discussing how i really need to mop. K?
Centipede and scorpion in one night....it's official....my father will never want to visit again and I will not sleep tonight without inspecting every inch of our bed and room.
E is going out of town tomorrow.....I may have to have a sleepover or something....I'm totally freaked out.  He is now checking under the couch with a flashlight. LOVE HIM!
ohhhhhh.....I could check into a hotel!
What? Just thinking of options.

One more.....SERIOUSLY!?!?!

We were innocently watching the office. LOVE the office. love Jim and Pam nugget. Love it.
Suddenly I notice the abster playing with a bug.....OH NO! Not a bug....a SCORPION....that immediately runs underneath our entertainment center. Niiiiiiiiice!

I grab the raid and proceed to have a massive panic attack call the M's across the street for some backup.
E-1, Scorpion-0!

he's mynewt ;)

Apparently this is my week for wildlife :) I was driving my friend Kim home tonight and we saw a skunk....which started us telling wildlife stories. This week alone has introduced us to "Batty" the bat that moved in while I was in class Monday night and stayed until the following evening when E scared him off. *sad*

Then after the FAIR! Where we ate trashy fair food and I WON BLUE RIBBONS and A BEST IN CLASS RIBBON. That's right....i'm officially small town. I was coreced into entering entered my lemon bars some cards and scrapbook pages and won three blue ribbons (1st place),a red ribbon (2nd place) and a best in class (that's like better than first....a special award...for my lemon bars! Officially a hick, I know.

When we got home we met this little guy! He's a newt...

Huzzah for wildlife!

School is stealing my soul.

School is good. Good but rough. I haven't been in school for a few years now and i'm just out of practice. It is also harder then I remember, when I was in school last time for most of the time I would go to school from 8-3 and work from 3:30- midnight. I do not have that type of energy anymore.
It's also scary....i'm following my dreams and that's more intimidating than I thought it would be. So happy to have an extra day of weekend this weekend FOR SURE!

In other news I'm super blessed. I have a supportive partner. I get to use my brain and learn and grow. I have a three day weekend....thinking i'm going to get creative and make some bread do some atristic stuff. :) We are planning a trip to D.C. in the spring so ideas for what we will do are percolating.

We had an awesome day yesterday....got out of town with some friends for shopping, thai food, art in the park, and fun.
