i love random

Listening to a little Blind Melon, watching the sun slowly set....Times like these sooothe my soul....I crave them..Outside, by the pool...good music...good drink...shish kabobs in my near future..A little bonding with the bff on skype soon to come...needed...anyway...like i said...i love random...I'm pretty sure i've used that title before...because it's oh so true...

We'll start with art...This is the album i was supposed to have completed by mother's day, but overloaded myself..It's for my aunt and uncle..I hope they like it..I have 2 more pages to complete, then it's off in the mail.

These candles were sent to me from a very special friend Jamey...She made me cry when i opened the box. So generous, and thoughtful. It touched my heart. I love packages...especially being so far from home...Hell....i love mail...minus the bills....and i keep receiving my rsvp's for the wedding...everytime i get one, i smile real big. It makes it feel so official. I'm reaching that "super excited phase"....every little detail, that works itself out....really does it for me...These candles will go GREAT on those reception tables, or any other place tiff thinks they neeeed to go :) Again-THANK YOU JAMEY...it reallly means ALOT. You can find Jamey at Lagniappe Candles: http://www.myspace.com/463370701 I may not have many fans...but the ones that check me out...should DEF check her out...She does a great job... I have liked every single one she's sent....She's quite lovely. And she works her BUTT off :)

Jeremy and I took a canoe trip. I had a blast. It really reminded me of the bayous back home....the quiet calming....Nature...life...Soothing....Mmmmmmm

This tree was quite beautiful. I am discovering so many new palnts, flowers, trees here...And it is fantastic...

We saw MANATEES!!!!!!!! There was a mom, dad(i'm assuming) and a baby! It was a fascinating experience.We were soooooo close to them and they didn't even mind....The first pic is of the baby resting on top of it's mother. It was the cutest thing ever.

This is the manatee in the water to give you a clue as to how HUGE they are!
And here is the momma sticking her nose out of the water.

And then comes my school. I went to pick up books the other day. Everytime i go into this building i am in awe...There are glass enclosed walls with beautiful settings.

And really that's all i've got....Gotta go put those shish kabobs together..Maybe swim afterward...and then skype! I LOVE skype...it makes me feel like im home....I love that feeling..

I can't believe it's over. Last sunday Jeremy's brother Jesse brought our neice to Florida with him to visit with us through Memorial Day weekend. Tiffany, Sara and Kaleb also made it down for the week. It was the best week ever. I was going through withdrawals...Since we moved to Florida, I haven't made any friends, and have dearly missed the ones i left back home. We have had a blast this past week. Time has flown by and now they are gone :(

Below is a short recap...
Here are us girls, taking it easy after a loooong night of chatting it up, drinking-whatev.
Tiff and I took a trip around town to check out thrift stores (we have TONS of them..lucky for me) and a few scrapbook stores.

We took quite a few boat rides over the past week, ending up at Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, and some other random spots. The picture below is Jesse, Ava, and Kaleb.
Drink of choice for the week: Vodka, cranberry & club soda. AKA: delicious

Sara and I...photo op..Love this pic..Love how you can see the beach in her eyes (well her sunglasses :)

Necklace/color goodness..

Tiff spotted a white bird of paradise at the resort we will be staying at after the wedding. WOW!

Ms. Sara watching little Kaleb and Tiff while catching some Vitamin D.

Kaleb...cutest kid ever...Loves sand..and oranges...doesn't care...tastes good together :)

Tiff and I..photo-op...Love this pic..reminds me of good times...

The famous flip flop sand photo...every vacation we take, this pic is a must...

Tiff wandered around my yard and collected some greenery, to create some beautiful works of art in the bottles i had lining my windowsill....YUMMY.

The love of my life-checking out the fallen tree-possibly looking for fish..

And the last day, Jeremy, Tiff and I went to another Misc. island that i don't know the name of...Where tiff and i found it necessary to create our version of a sandcastle/fort/community...Art can be found anywhere...

And on a shopping note....Found this yummy set of glitter at Michael's for 3.99. Later found a brad box to put them in.
Found these babies at JoAnne Crafts. The first two packs on the top of the stack are transparency overlays for photos..They have 12 in a set and only cost me 3.69!
I found this baby at a thrift store in immaculate condition (with the ownders manual!) for 7.00. I adore this!
Tiff made this arrangement for my bathroom.
New shirt i found at plato's closet..
Stamps i found at JoAnne Crafts. 1.00 a piece!

Note: I'm soooooooo glad you guys came to see me, and was truly sad when you left. I can hardly wait to see you again! It will be ON! good times....
Art-to be posted soon....
