I'm very ready to start a new year. I don't think I've ever been so excited. Next year is going to be fun!

Before you start feeling bad for Sherman know this is the same kitty that tore open a wet tea bag all over my beige duvet. The same duvet that covers the warm bed he sleeps on every night. He deserves no sympathy.
(For some reason blogger isn't uploading my pictures of Isabell. I'll try reposting them tomorrow.)

Here are some photos and a video...
Now you know, I gotta keep my Shermy warm on such a cold day. It was the perfect time to pull out his winter attire.

I have to go buy more eggs. Perhaps, I'll buy whip cream just to be spiteful.

I cleaned out from under my bathroom sink the other day and was astounded at how many products I have accrued. Well, I don't know why I was astounded, because I was there when I bought them. Sometimes I allow myself to buy into makeup's advertising, even though deep down I know it's just marketing. But what if they really do invent a lip gloss that lasts 12 hours, despite multiple make outs and drinks? I want to know! I have improved at throwing things out, but you never know when you may need fake eyelashes with glitter, 12 shades of pink lip gloss or 5 moisturizers for different skin problems. What if tomorrow my skin is extra dry? Crisis averted, I have an extra thick lotion. Nathan is quite baffled by my need for so many things, until the cold air hits his face and he needs moisturizer.
Also, I've always felt it was important to coordinate my outfits. I tried to loosen up some in college. Even still I couldn't go more than a drive home before fixing chipped nail polish. Right now my toes need to be repainted and even though I'm wearing boots and socks, it bothers me. What if there's an emergency and I have to remove my shoes? Remember: Freshly painted toenails, just as important as clean underwear. Here I demonstrate coordinating my nails with my necklace.(Seriously guys restrain yourself from making man hand jokes. Those of you wondering, I think I have man hands and my mom and brother think it's ok to make fun of me.)

Everytime I play this video he runs into the kitchen and looks at the cooler.
On another Sherman note...Two of his whiskers are singed because he got too close to a candle. Unfortunately, it doesn't show up in pictures. And don't worry (Zac) he wasn't harmed.

So, anyway, I like my new job.

I think the beach is a magical place, the smell, the sun, the sounds. It's so beautiful.
We...um, walked in a line. (Trying to include everyone without using the same pics as my mom.)
We watched birds contemplate life.

The weather is wonderful. Though I am slightly sunburned. Some woman at a store told me I needed to wear more sunscreen. My dad however laid at the beach for about 4 or 5 hours yesterday. He looks ethnic, like perhaps he doesn't belong to our family. My aunts, Margo and Peggy, and cousin Connie are here today. We're about to go to the pool. I'm going to try and catch up to my dad.

You may be wondering what we're doing with our precious angels while we're gone. Our awesome neighbor will be feeding and loving on them all week. Hopefully, Isabell won't bully Sherman too much.
Oh, and did I mention that one of Nathan's fish had 25 babies the other day? Yeah, they're tiny little black fish about the size of ants. So cute. Isabell said she'd be happy to watch them while we're gone.
See you guys next week!

They only bloom in the morning, hence their name. So, he goes out to see them every morning with a cup of tea in his hand.

So, we'll see if this works.

He plays the role quite well...
1. He's messy.
2. He copies his sister.
3. He's adorable.
4. Oh, and he lets you do silly things to him while he sleeps.
Even though he's getting big, he's still a baby. Just wait until we have a daughter, can't you picture him in a pink ruffled doll dress drinking fake orange juice from a toy bottle?

It was the same way once I started college. The first day of class was the only morning all year that I would wake up in time to fully get ready in an outfit I'd picked out the night before. Granted every day after that I got ready in 15 minutes. On the days I had to dress nicely and wear makeup to give a speech, my classmates would always compliment me. The way they would say so surprisingly, "Oh, wow you look nice." Uh huh, thanks.
I have been done with school for over a year now and I must say I felt a slight pang of sadness when I saw the "Back to School" signs at the drug store. Later, I checked the mail only to find Belmont's quarterly magazine with pictures of the campus and lists of events. Again, forgetting the nights I was up until 6 A.M. writing papers (ok, that only happened once and it was an annotated bibliography) or the mornings I was sick to my stomach over the thought of being called on in Italian to interpret something I didn't know in front of my 5 multi-lingual classmates. I was still jealous that I didn't have something new starting. Until I realized that it doesn't have to be about school. I can feel the same way about a new job or maybe just a new journal.
For me this time of year will always represent starting a new chapter in life. No matter what you have going on find something that will help you start fresh, whether it be a new job, new fall clothes, or just new pencils.
Seriously, do you not want to take a huge whiff of those?

A friend of mine in Nashville ran into her at a restaurant once. When she told me I acted like I didn't think it was a big deal, but secretly I was so jealous. But I mean what would I have even said to her, "I used to use my brush as a microphone when I performed your music."

That was Sherman pawing at my fudge pop. He touched it quite a few times and I'm pretty sure he hadn't washed his hands since his last trip to the "box".
This is typical Isabell. I just happened to catch her on video this time.
They so got that from Nathan.

Sherman mainly gets in trouble. He climbs a lot, which usually results in something falling over and it tends to be something breakable and often belongs to Nathan. After this picture was taken the chair fell into the aquarium. I've never seen Nathan jump up that quickly. Luckily for Sherman's well-being, it didn't break.
I turned into Auntie Anne for an hour the other day and made some pretzels. They were yum.
That's all for now.

The most exciting thing that has happened lately would be the visiting of my family. Last week, they came to see me. My mom made it a point to be with me the whole time, so we were quite inseparable. She went with me to work and met Abby and Jackson. She oohed and gooed over them like I do everyday. I tried to show her around Tulsa a little. We went and got spray tans. (If you haven't yet tried this, you totally should. I laugh the whole time it sprays me, because it's just so weird. It made me two shades darker...unfortunately two shades darker than pale still does not equal tan.) I took her to some local shops. But mostly we sat around and watched movies. She had an overload of Ambytime and is now having difficulty adjusting back to normal life. I also get upset when we separate and apparently I have been doing this since I was a baby. I think it has something to do with being breastfed for too long.
My brother and dad had some work to do while they were here. So, I mostly saw them at meal time. One of the nights we had dinner with Nathan's parents at India Palace, our favorite restaurant. It's very fun to be with both of our families at the same time. We are all a bit goofy. Except our dads who sat at the end of the table and talked missions and Bible the whole time, while everyone else was making obscene jokes. I also took them to try Pei Wei for the first time, so delicious.
And of course everyone finally got to meet our little Sherman. I'm quite sure their lives will never be the same. It was nice to have them here. Hopefully, we'll be seeing them again next month at the beach!

The cats keep taking naps on the kitchen floor, I guess it's cooler. So I'm going to go try that.

It's just that I miss calling Tisha to plan a last minute sleepover. I miss staying up late with a bunch of friends and never running out of things to talk about. I miss going to see a chick flick and crying even though it's corny. I miss having someone to get a pedicure with. Sure living with a boy is cool, but they won't notice that your eyeshadow matches your shoes or that your eyelashes look especially long, are you using a new mascara? So, to everyone who has a friend like this within a reasonable distance, hug her and tell her how much you appreciate her.
