thing i enjoy:



Kari thinking Mom doesn't wash clothes well enough and taking them from her.

Kari being the tallest person in 10 miles around (excluding me).

Kari speaking Spanish to every person she meets, including saying hello to the old ladies in the morning.

Kari pretending to be a shark.

Kari jumping in the pool (not as good as me).

Sitting on the beach with donkeys.

Mom teaching people the bunny hop.



Andrew and dogs.

The end.

just get up and dance

"Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run."
-Dean Karnazes, Ultrarunner and best-selling author

So... How you doin'?

Since Katie shared the books she's read, I will give you mine so far in 2011:
  • Born to Run, Christopher McDougall
  • American Wife, Curtis Sittenfeld
  • Ordinary, Extraordinary People, Condeleezza Rice
  • Decision Points, George W. Bush
It leans pretty heavily Republican with American Wife (fictional story based on Laura Bush's life), Condi and Bush's memoirs, but don't worry. I'm still liberally liberal. I set a goal of 75 books in 2011 and I started my 6th last night. On track!

Tomorrow, Mom, Harry and I leave for a trip to Honduras. We'll visit Kari, that one girl who is my sister. I fit everything I'm taking in one backpack. It's amazing. I'll share pictures once I get back.

I've recently been turned onto brussels sprouts, specifically their deliciousness when tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper and then roasted. I've always been a fan of sweet potato fries.

So good. For reals. I had a brussels sprouts craving the other day, which is on par with ridiculous. Andrew, after saying he didn't like brussels sprouts, apparently tried them for the first time and has grown to like them.

The only bad part about this situation?

Being forced to share.
