Spring Flowers

13 Apr

Sorry I haven’t been posting much; life has been mildly hectic. My basement flooded, I haven’t been sleeping well, and when I’ve been up to doing stuff, I’ve been getting the house ready for my dad and brother to come visit me next week!

So, for now, here are some pictures of flowers that I took over the weekend while Kipp and I were on a walk. I would have a nice sunset picture to go along with it, but they all came out blurry. Trying to take a picture with an impatient puppy who just wants to GO is hard!


Crazy Weeeeek!

25 Apr

– We had three events on Monday, two of which I took pictures for, and spent the rest of the day editing those photos.

– On Tuesday, there was an event at night, so I spent pretty much the whole day Wednesday editing THOSE photos and uploading them. I had an Earth Day post all prepared for Tuesday, showing off the flowers I planted in my yard last weekend, but I didn’t get a chance to post it. :-/

Thursday was aaaaall catch up doing the stuff that was supposed to be done Mon-Wed.

– Today (Friday) has been pretty quiet. Which is why I get to post now.


1. It’s time like this that I *love* working in radio. Hanson performed at a local record store and 106.7 KISS-FM was the official station sponsor (?) of it.

2. This means I GOT TO MEET HANSON! My 7th grade self is ecstatic!

3. I also got on the guest list for their concert, which was great. I never even considered going to a Hanson show before, but hey – free tickets, right?

4. I met up with Julie. She is a BIG Hanson fan.

5. She brought along her friend Megan, who was an even BIGGER Hanson fan. Like seriously, she would just stare in awe at the stage. Pretty weird! But they were fun.


1. When I planted flowers in the yard, these two front flowers hadn’t bloomed yet, so I had to guess what colors would be. I picked red and yellow, and was pleasantly surprised when they bloomed and I saw that I was right! Well, truth be told, the ones I bought were more red and the ones that bloomed were more of an orange, but it was pretty close. Good enough for me! I also got some daffodil’s for good measure.

2. At Target I bought these little herb kits for $1 and planted the extra seeds in the yard. I thought they were super seeds or something and started sprouting…

3. …but then I noticed that there were a lot of the same sprouts next to the house. I wonder what they are!

4. I was happy to fill up the shelves on my …shelf, even if it was with supplies.

5. Kitty grass and catnip are in little pots on the steps, the kits are on the table around the black pot.

6. Another plant that hasn’t bloomed yet, and the bird feeder I got at Lowes for $5! Man, those birds eat a lot of bird seed!

7. I don’t know what this flower is called, but there was one growing naturally in the ground, so I bought it to match. UNFORTUNATELY, as you can see in the picture, when I planted the new one, the old one started to die. 😦

8. They are working on our roof and it is so NOISY! The workers start at 8:00 and I usually sleep until at least 8:30. Grumble, grumble. AND those stupid roofers dropped a shingle and broke the new purple plant that killed the original one. Now I have to buy two to replace them.

9. This machine is the bane of my existence. It is right outside our patio.
