Crazy? Insane? Nope, just TONS OF FUN!

Through the years, Kally and I have taken some of the most insane pictures. I would put our pictures up against anyone's for creativity, and weirdness. Many people have not understood our desire to spend an entire day, first destroying the apartment getting ready, and then by taking goofy pictures. We have always been inspired my America's Next Top Model, but we take it to such an extreme, that it turns out to be funny instead of artistic. (Case in point, the rock star photoshoot, mine to the left, Kal's to the right). Regardless, we have had a blast. Some might think these photos look Halloween costume worthy. But in reality, the most tame photo (at the bottom) is the only one that is a costume. Only we would have youth cheerleading costumes at our immediate disposal. It just makes me laugh. I'm gonna love showing these to future children.

Me w/ a GIANT pumpkin @ Lowes
I went to Ben's last weekend to help him paint his new house. We had a lot of fun. There is still much work to be done, but it's really going to be nice. On a quick trip to Lowes we discovered a pumpkin festival going on in the parking lot. I had to have my picture taken with this GIANT PUMPKIN! Needless to say, I had been at the house all morning, and I look pretty scary. All in all it was a fun weekend!

Wanted...A SERIOUS European Travel Buddy...

Okay, so out of frustration I'm posting this ad. I have longed to go to Europe since I could remember. Being an adventurous person, I have always wanted to experience new, and exciting places. The problem is, that I can't find ANYONE serious enough to go with. People want to go, but when it comes down to serious planning, nobody seems interested. I understand that everyone has lives, and families, and before I start my own I really want to experience some European culture. Is this to much to ask people? It's not Zimbabwe...or Timbuktu. It's Europe...home to extremely old societies and architecture. Famous pieces of art, and cultures very different from our own. Who would pass on the opportunity to see a town that hasn't been restored since the Thirty Years War? Or to tour castles where royalty once resided? I know my home won't be complete until I have my very own cuckoo clock from the Black Forest. Sigh. Until I find someone, I'm still going to plan. I will go by myself if I have too. I can be stubborn...and I'm not giving up!
