Mirror Images

In my room I have a dresser with a mirror over it. For some reason I cannot keep this dresser clean (I'm pretty sure I get it from my dad). Anyway, as I was cleaning it off this morning, I caught myself telling jokes in the myself. I started making funny faces and proceeded to laugh and tell myself that I'm funny. It was weird. And I acknowledged that to myself in the mirror, of course.

Tonight, like most nights, I was holding up a small mirror so that Reed could look at himself. He's usually looking for dry skin or pimples or something that is bugging him. But tonight I was watching him and I noticed that he wasn't trying to spot any imperfections at all. He was simply making funny faces at himself.

The great thing is that in so many ways we're all the same. Exactly the same.

While We're On the Subject of Dresses

I'm a WINNER!!! I entered a giveaway on my favorite blog and I won! I've never won anything before.
 Except for that one time when I had no cavities and they put my name in the "no cavity" jar and I won three stuffed dogs but that was weird. 
Today I won this beautiful dress and I'm so happy. 

Are you jealous because all you're wearing is a maxi dress??

An Afternoon Run Along The Charles

It was a really, really great afternoon. I still smile when I think about it. 

*Pictures are from my phone. I don't think they would probably be any better if they were from a camera but any excuse will do, I suppose.

**Sorry that my blog has basically just been one giant photobombing session lately. Maybe a stroke of writing genius will hit me soon... maybe.

When I think "maxi dress" I think of maxi pads and then I think that a girl must want to wear this dress because she is on her period and doesn't feel like putting anything else on and then I think of how horrible it would be to wear a maxi pad in a maxi dress and then I wonder why on earth anyone would name a dress "Maxi Dress".

This is what I did at work today. Productive? You could say that. 
Funny? Obviously.

Reed read an article once that said that people who laugh a lot live longer. He keeps telling me that I'm probably going to live to be 120 years old because I laugh too much. 
I told him that's great. It will be awesome because all the people my age are going to be hilarious. 
And he said, "compared to what?" in his best Marcel voice.
So good.

I've been feeling a little bit eugghhish lately. I feel like my emotions sort of remind me of runny eggs. I don't even know what that means but I suppose that would be my excuse for the lack of interesting posts as of late.

 In fact, I still have nothing of real interest to say so I thought I would simply inform you that a long while back a read a book. A really great book. The Secret Life of Bees. Read it because you will like it! It didn't exactly get me branching out in the reading area but my mom suggested it and she only suggests really good books so I read it and it was wonderful. I'm currently working on Mere Christianity, by C.S. Lewis. I'm having a hard time focusing on it (that reminds me--it's due tomorrow. Shows you how much effort I've put into reading it) but he makes a lot of good points and I feel like there is a lot of truth to what he has to say. So, read on. 

Maybe when I feel like I can put my feelings into words besides "eugghh" and "runny eggs", I'll get back to you. To keep you satisfied, please enjoy these pictures of Reed on his 33rd birthday! That old man... Gotta love him. 

I got him that awesome shirt with his favorite quote on it.

All of those animals sing... I promise, it's not as creepy as it looks.

WHY? Have I never had an Edible Arrangement before today?? Incredible.
