Can I start a post off with a big, frustrated sigh?  Phhht, I feel like I'm so behind on everything.  These pictures are from sometime the weekend before last and since then we've packed almost all of the way up, done a bunch of painting and fixing up on our current home, trying to get things ready at the new house, which is taking forever and we *might* have to camp out for a week because we already gave our 30 day notice on our current place but the people at the new house are taking a really long time to get all of their stuff out and then we just got back from the blitzkrieg that was the fishing trip.

Blaaaah, word vomit.  I won't even mention how bad I am at the blog right now because it's embarrassing.   At least the fishing trip last weekend was awesome, we drove from Fairbanks to Chitna which is about a 750 mile round trip and we limited out on the fish in one night.  Oh yeah, it was record numbers for the runs this year which was nice to see after last year being so sad.  It was a fun little trip and it's always get to just get out and do something.   I'll type up a fishing post a little later, I'm waiting for a door to dry right now before I put another coat of paint on it.  (Children, dirty hands and white doors.  Who in their right mind would think that's a good combination?)  On a kid note though, this little spot here is the coolest place for kids.  My siblings and I would have done anything for a awesome spot by the river like this when we were kids.

  6. Is it creepy to tell you how beautiful you look in these photos? You do the most amazing job of making your clothes work for you! I could never pull off that dress and it looks like it was created just for you.

  7. I definitely know the feeling. I never feel caught up with anything ever!
    You look so pretty in these pictures though. I love this dress on you. The neckline is really flattering!
