tundra + clouds (equals) happiness

i took a little stroll behind our house.
the tundra continues for miles and miles.
it might look quite plain, but i think it is gorgeous.
much better then seeing snow.

we will move into the new house tomorrow.
i will miss this house (i know i have said that before).
but it's so very true.
right now we live on the very outskirts of bethel.
in a neighborhood-ish place called
tundra ridge.

random find

my goodness.
look what we found.
we were out exploring the tundra and randomly came accross these.
you must understand that there are no roads anywhere by this find.
no roads at all.
just lots of water and marsh.
we are convinced it was the aliens. haha, just kidding.
no really tho we can't figure it out.

blasted church talks

don't mind the outfit.
our trip to the river was following a much needed sunday nap.
hence the christmas pj pants.

earlier today i was so happy.
work was fun.
cory made dinner.
it was over 60 degrees.
weather like this almost makes the cold winter worth it.

but then i came home and remembered we are giving talks on sunday.
- - - my happiness ubruptly came to a stop.

our branch only has 50 people so we give talks ever three months.
(like clock work)

blasted church talks. they make me nervous.

i will miss this house.
he took this picture around one in the morning.
the sun never goes down anymore.

until next year.

as you can see it was a great day.
i came home to my stairs all birthday-ed out.
-- the balloons and banner were lovely gifts from my mom
thank you!
the gifts that cory got me consisted of
a glue gun
new shoes
a go-ped (i really wanted one!)
a camera - nikon d60!
to everyone that sent me cards thank you!
- i loved each and every one!

don't you just LOvE birthdays.

(a little doodle i made)

i am twenty*two 2day!
yesterday, at work. the party planning committee. YES. we have one!
asked me what i should bring to the pot luck
*kinda smiling i said, "what is the potluck for."
knowing they would say, 'for you birthday of course.'
instead they said.
"shhhh, WILL is right behind you, we don't want him to know"
then i got confused.
"wait. what about WILL" i asked.
they replied, "it his birthday on sunday -
- - he doesn't know we are having a potluck for him."
- they have NO idea it is my birthday, not sunday but TODAY!
i am kinda glad.
this party planning committee is almost as bad as on "the office"
cake, musical candles, presents. the works.
i think all that attention would be embarrassing.
will can have the attention. i will have the food!

happy happy mothers day to you, to you!

just so EVERYONE knows. i have the greatest mother there is!
my mom is simply amazing. she is always the life of the party, cracking jokes and making people laugh. she doesn't get embarrassed easily, which makes for some fun times together. she is a great listener and always has the best advice, always! she is extremely talentened in everything she does from art to being a stay at home mom. i look up to her in everyway shape and form. my kids will be lucky if i am half the mom she has been to me. being in alaska has been hard, but even in the coldest times i know she is just a phone call away.
i love her phone calls!
i love her!
like i said before, you are 'simply amazing'!

did i mention i have the best mom around?!
