The Latest in Pictures

After a year of putting my life on hold (thank you MAT…), I am starting to get myself back together. I would describe myself as organized yet messy, so this process includes several not fun chores as well as a few long-awaited days of fun. Lately, I can be found in the trenches of my closet or laying out by the pool (thank you Sean and Mik) with friends.

Will and I spent last Saturday in Branson celebrating my return to real-life in the post-MAT world and our one-year anniversary. Let's just say that the year has flown by, and we had a wonderful day trip. We shopped a lot (Will got more than I did) and ate at one of my favorite restaurants Cantina Laredo. Absolutely delicious!

(We're looking a little rough here, but it had been a busy day.)

On Sunday, Katelyn left for her voyage across the Atlantic to Europe. She'll be playing in London and then traveling around to see various sites and scenes that I can't seem to remember at the moment. I wanted to snap a quick pic to remember her by before she headed out…

Today, I am working on tackling a few chores around the house. I went to Target to stock up for my upcoming camping/canoeing trip this weekend (a first for me). I think I have everything seeing that I brought every item in the store that was even remotely related to the outdoors. After a quick lunch at Stonemill, I came home to tackle this…

I'm almost too embarrassed to post this, but it is true. My closet is a DISASTER. This was after I had already begun the cleaning/sorting process, so it looks worse than it really was. However, it is pretty bad. I must give a shout-out to Rachel's cute bag in the far upper left! I'll post the after tomorrow in order to redeem myself.

Last but not least, I took the advice of my dear friend Darby and baked a cake. While I've never actually met Darby, I feel like we are friends and know that if I ever met her or her sister Erika, we would quickly become BFFs (much to the surprise of my doubting boyfriend and brother-in-law). It is called the Texas Sheet Cake and is quite delicious. I saw the pictures on Darby's blog and went out and bought a new pan in order to bake it properly. I was hoping the cake would remain untouched until my Bible study tonight, but someone seems to have tested it. Let's just say my the thief's tummy is quite happy at the moment!

I'm off to finish tackling that disastrous closet. Wish me luck!
