A Little Radness from the Weekend

1.17.2011

They say you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover...but I do!
I got this for Christmas from Ma Nielson and I spent my entire Friday in Wonderland!
He said he was going to wait until Valentine's Day to spring this one one me, but, well, he couldn't. I laughed my head off.
Friday night, we went on a triple date with Kate, Brandilyn, and their husbands (duh!). 
Unfortunately, I took no pictures. I'm a fool.
But can we talk about Kate's legs? 
They basically go on for 3 miles and there's only one word to describe them: BowChickaWowWow!
Since I have to wake up at 5AM to take Marcus to clinical at the hospital every Saturday, I decided I should volunteer at the nearest Bountiful Basket location. It was a blast. All the contents in two of these baskets for $15! It's a amazing! 
You should sign up and get healthy :)
After my time at the bountiful basket co-op was up, I came home and painted this. Riding in a hot-airballoon, and going to the hot-airballoon festival in New Mexico are on my list of things to do before I die and I had seen a small card like this, but I needed it bigger and red, so I made my own. I love it.

This weekend I went to Young Single Adults for the first time ever, had an awesome girl's night out, and got to play with my cute nephew!
This is my first time at your blog, and I love it. It is so happy here!

i'd love to find something like that to volunteer at in my area. where could i look for it? also, speaking from someone who spent a few years living in albuquerque, you MUST make it to the balloon fiesta. husband and i plan to go in the next few years (pre-kiddo).
