I have been trying to post the day only because sometimes I have to write at night or recap the weekend if I go out of town for four days, etc. So I will try to get in some more creative titles over spring break!
Heather of Hangrypants, whom I consider a friend even if she doesn’t ( ) gave me a lovely award…
Thank you very much! If you haven’t checked out her site, you totally should She and her boy-toy Mark write a “he says she says” type of blog and they try out different fads such as a “raw” diet for a month etc.
I don’t think I am ready to award anyone because so many blogs I would award have already been awarded. I am going to check out who hasn’t and share the love…just not immediately so stay tuned!
I also did get the “tag” to put up my Spring Palette from Sweet and Fit … so I am working on that over Spring Break.. how appropriate! Thanks darling!
I thought I would do more of a random post this morning, mostly for Dori at Dori’s Shiny Blog. She only reads during the day ( I believe, right?) so I thought I would give all of you lovely workers something to keep you entertained while at work on FRIDAY! Plus, you get to know more about me via photos!

There is me “teaching” in South Africa ( May 2004) These kids had NO idea what I was saying per the kid on the left- check out his face!? I tried the lesson that was in front of me than gave up and we started this game – I couldn’t describe it other than it was like a patty cake type of thing in another language ( Zulu or Africans maybe)
The entire school and the 28 travelers I was part of.. I was kneeling somewhere on the right
Table Mountain, Cape Town SA
Yes, I really did take this photo! We had gone to this side of Cape Town because we were going to take the ferry to the prisonthat Neslon Mandella had been captive. Unfortunately, they closed it the day we were there. So we went around to outlook places. Here is a few of us at the outlook, me in the middle…
At the “three rondavels” ( molly, me, and katie). I think my parents might have wanted to kill me for wanting to take this photo and standing there! It was breath taking but also terrifying.
The Three Rondavels
On night safari inside Kruger National Forest… there was a mama elephant ( you can see the top outline of her head) with her baby and there were more in front of the truck . The guide thought they looked ready to charge.
I tried to lighten it up so you could see… can you see her?
Okay- i have gazillions of pictures of Africa- if anyone wants a particular shot let me know! We landed in Johannesburg and travelled through the entire country pretty much, ending in cape town. On to other animals…
This our dog Jack on one of our longer road trips to Virginia to visit Jeff’s uncle. He was so cute, his little head weighed too much after a while so he rested it on our arms for a good 15 minutes!
These clouds were from the pier on my brithday in 2007, we went down to the beach for the weekend and it was absolutely gorgeous!
Our friends live in Boston and we went up for their wedding, we ate here ( this is south of Boston, past Quincy, I think Rockford or Rockland). It was OH MY GOSH delicious!
One of the many shots of Niagra, NY Sept. 2008 for Jeff’s Cousin’s wedding..

Fishing , Nate and Andrea’s Beach Wedding Oct. 2008

Jeff’s younger sister KC Mo, Me, and his older sister Melissa ( I mention them fairly often on here so I thought I’d put up a photo- we all got our nails done)
Charleston, SC : Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt
Part of Rainbow Row ( I think this house was designed by a couple mid-divorce- hence two different face styles)
I hope everyone enjoyed all the random photos.
The plan for today…
Run and Yoga
Search for an article for class due after break
Search for jobs, etc. for summer
Friday! I caught up /commented on blogs and watched the shows I recorded last night.
Recaping the photos was fun for me! I love travelling and looking back at the pictures is almost as good because it pulls up the memories of being there.
