Worse late than never?

My life isn't always completely boring. The problem is just that I forget to/don't get around to it/don't take pictures/insert other endless excuses to blog about it. Then I tell you a month later. I don't know if that's worse than not telling you at all, considering that if I never told you, you'd never know.

In any event, today is catch up day.
This was 2 or 3 weekends ago at my friends, Regan and Austin's reception. It was BEAUTIFUL! The couple was so cute and so in love. Going to receptions after being married is so much more fun because it reminds you of your reception. Sigh. I just love my husband.
 One of my best friends, Alyssa, was there. We've been friends since we were 11. This was right after announcing to me that she's expecting TWINS!! Oh my gosh, I was so excited. I might have cried, and then gotten embarrassed that I just burst into tears! I was so excited! I said that already, didn't I? Imma be an auntie again! Read her story here.    
Guess what! I also met Kara from, Not A Couple's Blog. Before leaving I asked her if we could be real life friends. She agreed. SCORE! She was really awesome. We hit it off. Not in the creepster way. But in the lets be friends way. I guess that could be creepy too if she just wasn't "diggin" it. I'm having flashbacks to dating days. Let's just move on before Kara changes her mind. [kara- we have to stay friends because you're just about my only friend who doesn't make me look like a giant in pictures. thank you for being tall.]
This was about a month ago at Toby Keith's I love this bar and grill. I took it because I thought the no fire arms thing was funny...until I had to walk all the way back to the car to put mine away. I'm just now realizing the poster above it. Chris Young next week?! Fo free! Who want's to come with me!?
This was over a month ago, maybe two. We went with my siblings that live in town. From left to right Michelle (sister in law! Expecting my first niece from them in November!), Lance (oldest brother...but only by a few minutes!), Josh (brother in law), Hottie husband, and me. Oh, say what? Those are my size 2 shorts from high school I whipped out again? You're right. Good eye, good eye.
Then while cleaning out my camera I discovered long hair pictures.  RIP long hair. I almost forgot how long it was. But it's cool because in a few months it'll be that long again. It's okay Kara, I ridicu brag too.

I took these (probably about 2 months ago) to show you how great my new straightener works so I could reccommend it to you. But now I'm not home so I can't tell you what brand it was. sad. Wow, I'm not entertaining in this post at all. Sorry friends! Maybe this is why I usually stick to random rantings about pointless things.
Sorry bout the red eyes and terrible lighting. Didn't get a chance to edit these.
And for good measure, here's a picture of Clint's bum. This is for those two of you who voted your favorite posts are posts about Clint's bum. (poll in upper right corner) Oh wait, both those votes were mine. Well, at least I'm happy. 

You know you're a newlywed when date nights turn into laundry and study nights and the highlight of the evening (other than a quick trip to the temple) is a 20 minute Modern Family episode.
Not that we did that last night or anything.

I'm gonna be a creeper friend and comment on this so fast! I love that you are tall and I don't look like a giant in that picture either. I was starting to feel like one after spending all day taking pictures with Regan and Lexi. I didn't realize I looked so excited in the picture either. I must have been very excited about the real life friend thing. Oh, did I tell you that I loved the riduc-brag story you posted on my blog? Well, I did. Also, size 2 shorts? I hate you. Ok, the end.

Enjoy Modern Family. Glad you like it...for me is like flashbacks of my life. For the record we Colombian women DO tend to behave like that...most of the time ;)

Gentri said...

And just in case you didn't get my email- I can definitely resize it for you if you want. That's no biggie. :)
