a lovely day for a tea party…

Aubrey and some of her NC friends

And a tea party is just not a tea party without chocolate dipped strawberries

Reading the “Beautiful Garden” story. I have the story posted here.

today was special because…

1. Aubrey and Ethan are here! Every day with them is a special day.
2. I’m moving into my new room (painted a yummy creamsicle orange). Organizing the closet, planning furniture placement *sigh* heaven. :)
3. Mom and Aubrey and I spent the morning planning a tea party for tomorrow for Aubrey and some of her sweet friends. Pictures to follow.
Oh, and this:
And this:
I think my family has way to much fun sometimes.
Thank you Mac computer. You provide us oh-so-many hours of entertainment.

big brother and i went to virginia beach…

This picture makes me happy. :)

We rented an awesome 2 person bike (we squeezed three on there). SO many laughs as we tried to maneuver that thing around people and other bikes and our own personal “obstacle courses”.

Oh, and yes, I am obsessed with these yellow sunglasses.

Posing with the giant mer-man.

We met the last, long lost Jonas Brother on the roof of the Hilton.

The. Weekend. Was. Amazing.

The End.

let me introduce myself…

I love life – automatic-flush toilets scare me – thunder is one of the best things ever, especially when it’s so powerful that the floor shakes – i love the smell of fireworks, especially sparklers – i don’t really like animals, yeah, i know that makes me some sort of creep, but it’s the truth – without music…my life would be very quiet and gray. music is the color on my canvas. – i like fun-to-say-words, like “squeegee” or “theodolite” (survey tool…) – i love seasonal activities: picking strawberries in the summer, making applesauce in autumn – i have a gigantic mane of light brown curls, of which i hold an ever-changing love/hate relationship – i love alfresco dining – and the smell of sprinklers and wet grass – sitting cozily by a crackling bonfire makes me very happy – i love the stars – and big, heavenly, billowing clouds – i like road trips that include lots of fun stops, and if we stop at a gas station (and i have money…) i will be buying a three course meal of candy, soda and beef jerky – i like good food. if i’m going to have macaroni and cheese, i want homemade delicious cheesiness, not noodles-and-powder-in-a-box – coffee makes me sleepy, really. every afternoon i make myself a cup a’joe to wake myself up, and every afternoon i drink it and fall into a deep, late afternoon slumber – i loooove the beach – i love the smell of honeysuckle – jesus is most definitely my best friend – i have a phobia/adoration of gigantic storms, their power both terrifies and fascinates me – i hate math with utmost passion and think my big brother is crazy for majoring in it at college – i love ambiance – i am too easily charmed – my mom has cultured in me a deep love and enjoyment of beauty in my surroundings – i love spontaneous dance moves – i can’t watch scary or violent movies without covering my eyes – i tend to have an immature sense of humor – i get queasy at the sight of blood – my favorite color changes every day, at the moment it’s grayish blue – super-quiet people get on my nerves – i tend to be bossy – i love being outside – i love to dance, even though i’m no good at it – i like it when people pay me sweet, sincere compliments – i love to love people and be loved unconditionally – i am not perfect – i like to be crazy – laughing is one of my most favorite things to do in the whole entire world, if you can make me laugh, i like you :) – sunrises are the only reason to wake up early in the morning – sunday is my favorite day – inside jokes are the best – i’m definitely one of those silly girls who bursts out laughing in the middle of complete silence because of something that happened yesterday (or last week…) – i don’t really like to talk on the phone – i love walking in the rain – i love to see fog over rolling hills – flowers make me smile – i am uber tall, and wish i was short – my favorite kind of people are those who see me at my craziest/stupidest/bossiest/whatever-ist and love me all the more for it – i need a convertible car, hair blowing in the breeze is the only way to go – music is definitely better when it’s loud – i like big sunglasses, but i’m not brave enough to wear them – i care to much about what people think of me – i spend to much time on facebook – i write songs – one of the things i want most in my life is to be utterly, 100% in love with a man who loves me back just as much – one of my dreams is to go skydiving – i want to be good at hard-core extreme sports, but i’m to much of a wimp to learn how – i love to make things beautiful – …

My name is Elisa. What’s yours?
