{camera phone adventures... mostly}

Guess what I busted out today???


Yup, three-quarter sleeves. As opposed to a long sleeve or turtle neck. We're not quite there...although people were lookin like Eskimos on campus today..bahaha. It totally, more like, finally became fall-ish here in Mesa town. *Brrrrr*

So to keep warm we journeyed over to


for a delightful overpriced (but delicious) cupcake

307 ..or two or three. Seemed like the hip thing to do.

Oh and here, and here... why not.


(tell me one bad thing about Macs...we're getting serious about it and need input. plz? thanks)

Brody was loving life.

300310 Mostly.

Here's what he loved the most- his socks with crocs. My kid is awesome. Or I guess I'm awesome since I'm the one who dresses him.


I had big elaborate plans to make a delicious steak dinner on our new BBQ. We have a gas BBQ out back: we were told upon move-in that it was a great working feature...nope, broke. So we bought a cheap one at Wal-mart. ha.

Since it got a lil late and our BBQ has still not been assembled, we did the next best thing...

1028091745a Drive thru. Sweeeeeet.

1028091730aI love ignoring homework and spending time with my boys. Today was Life is good.

Oh and I also dusted off these bad boys. Because I'm a pansy now and can't take the cold. Did I ever tell you I went to BYU-I and braved –25 degrees? I'm practically a legend here in AZ.


Peace out.

ps. the melted mess in my last post was one of those tweety bird ice cream bars. I'm really depressed no one knew that (lol). Remember those? Aah well.

"I'm practically a legend here in AZ." this is my favorite line ever. seriously everyone was so cold today, but lets be honest...60 degrees ain't no thang.

I love everyones different weather mentalities based on geography. I'm used to cold and ice and snow in CO so when I'm at school here in Memphis (which I am right now) days like today (60 and sunny) feel like short sleeve and flip flop weather. It was a beautiful day. :)

I am dying to try "Sprinkles"! I love cupcakes and those are just so cute.

Yes get a Mac. I recently told someone on their blog (I can not remember who, maybe is was you. I don't know???) that we got a Mac and it is the best thing ever! I LOVE it and I will never buy a PC again. I'm not a huge fan of lap tops b/c I can't stand the keyboard, no mouse, and no ten key, so we got an iMac. It was the best decision we ever made. If that doesn't convince you, I don't know what will:)

Devin & Ruthann said... Reply To This Comment

Oh and they just came out with a new iMac...I totally want that one now...but online you can get a refurbished one, which I didn't know about when we got ours or I totally would have because they have the same warranty as the brand new ones. Just wanted to throw that out there...

What's wrong with crocs with socks? I do it all the time?

Melody said... Reply To This Comment

Though I knew exactly the tweety bird ice-cream upon your revealing--I have to admit, that before I read the reveal, I thought, I know that looks familiar---like something from when you guys were small! I was pleased to see it actually was! Love, Mother!

I loved seeing you all in this post, I love your "winter clothes" and seeing Tony get dinner for you guys, and Brody's expression was priceless! Looks like he had a great day with his folks! (ha, ha)

Connie, while the temperature is not as bad as -25, you really have not been cold until you spent winter in Northern Iraq. Oh, the wind! No amount of layering kept your daddy warm.

I used crocs in Iraq as shower shoes. Things were not so bad in Sulaymaniyah, but at FOB Warrior in Kirkuk, the latrines and showers were in separate CHUs (trailers) and those thin cheap shower shoes they sell at the PX do nothing to protect your feet from the gravel and cold. Yeah, crocs rock.

When I saw that first Sprinkles picture, it looked like shoes on display to me. Both delicious things, shoes or cupcakes.
