1. What kind of camera would you recommend for the family photographer?
(ok - she just read my blog and specified her question - she wants a digital camera and she wants one that can fit in her purse - not a cool one like Shanae and Jamie's)
2. What kind of vacuum do you prefer?
p.s. my Mom also wanted me to clarify that I do not own
any of those God-awful shoes in my previous post...I hope that wasevident before I had to clarify...do you know me at all?!

They're hideous. Not all women with size 13 feet are 80 years old.
Only being able to find shoes like these make it hard to live in a house with a sister who has an entire shoe CLOSET and comes home from practically every shopping trip with new shoes. Even a trip to Target usually entails new shoes. I'm just jealous - obviously - but it really is a frustrating matter. Seriously, people - spread the wealth. If anyone out there ever becomes a shoe designer, please show the love to size 13 women.

everyone looks so great and it sounds like it was a great weekend.
i hope the class of '99 can do it like you guys when we get together next summer.
(for pictures, see Tamara & Shanae's blogs)
My first official day back at school was Monday (read: end of summer...boo...). There is a lot to do before August 26th...but I'm confident it will get done! It's kind of exciting to be back at work - new year, new possibilities - but it will be better when the students are back too.

What a historical day. I have been thinking about how amazing it is to see these days (07.07.07, etc.) and how we'll never see them again. It's a one time deal. Everyday is a one time deal. It just takes days like today to remind us of that...
I've been looking forward to today for a while - not because of the date, but because of this:
I am not an athlete, but I sure do love the Olympics. I think my Mom's attraction to the games has influenced my attraction to the games. I just love learning more about the country the Olympics are in, the individual stories of the athletes, the pomp & circumstance of the whole affair...it's just exhilerating!!
I've been so lucky to be able to go to two Olympic Parks - in Munich and Park City, Utah. Our family also took a vacation to Vancouver, B.C. shortly after it was announced that the 2010 Olympics will be held there. We are so lucky to get to have the world watching the Pacific Northwest in two years - I really hope to be able to attend an event there. It really is a once in a lifetime event.
So - the DVR is set and I'm settled in to watch the Opening Ceremonies tonight. I'm looking forward to watching Track & Field, Gymnastics, Diving, Swimming (Go Michael Phelps!!), Synchronized Swimming, Women's Soccer (Hello Hope Solo from Richland!) and Beach Volleyball. Seriously, the DVR is set to record three times a day for a minimum of 3 hours each. That's a lot of Olympics. :)
Whoop Whoop! :)
