These two lamps came home with me from the thrift store ($3 each)
I’m spray-painting them bright green.
ignore the boxes in the background… I’m MOVING!
(but there’s always time for green spray-paint)
also, it’s basically summer here in Virginia Beach.
as usual, we go from 60’s to 100’s in about 5 days.
we don’t mess.
but, these little cuties are growing.
I wish I could say the fuzzy-ness is all from the geese…
but unfortunately that’s camera user-error.
they let me get very close…
until big papa spotted me!
then sized me up…
then gave me a tongue lashing
(haha, ok sorry, that was corny)
but they’re still cute
and there was a beach day with my good friend Tiffany
a beach day that has been in the planning since,
well, probably 3 years ago when we started graduate school 🙂
this little fella came out to relax too
and there was also a wedding in Roanoke, VA
I don’t know why, but I always take a picture of Chris driving when we go on roadtrips…
Here he is telling me to “put my camera away” because “the battery will run out” and I “didn’t bring a back-up one” and it will “run out before we even get to the wedding” and “then I will be sad”.
psh… like he knows anything.
I’m fairly sure I actually made that sound, “PSH”
and I bet there were some facial grimaces as I put my camera away…
but NOT because he told me to and NOT because he was right.
I got to see some good friends…
and eat some Y-U-M-M-Y cake
I’d even dare to say the BEST wedding cake I have ever had.
Each layer was a different flavor
(including strawberry and dreamsicle… I don’t remember the others)
I’m terrible at using my camera in low lighting… so sorry again for the pictures
(plus I was too excited to mess with settings)
My friend’s dress was made using lace from her grandmothers dress!!
what else? hmmm….
oh, and I wore my green dress and yellow polka-dot shoes
Chris and I raced back home Saturday night after the wedding so we could be at church on Sunday morning
currently, our church meets in a school building on Sunday mornings…
but we recently built a structure (of sorts) on our property.
Sunday was the first Sunday that our “pavillion” was complete so we held service outside.
it was AMAZING
I wish we could worship and fellowship together outside EVERY Sunday…
seriously, if you haven’t ever experienced that… a church that is less Church-y,
I recommend it.
God should be the focus, not the pomp and circumstance that
we typically surround ourselves with in church.
ok, I think we’ve done enough catching up for now.
I can’t wait to show you my new place, and finally reveal all these projects I’ve been working on!
