I've been promising a life update post for ages now, and since this week was a bust, drawing wise, I'm going to take this time to edit pictures and actually keep that promise.
Let's see, since my last update...
I did some more visiting with my lovely sister and her family. Ugh, their kids are the cutest.
|"Quick, make a funny face!"|
Because when your niece wants to try on all the sunglasses, you let her, cause it's freaking adorable....
Sometimes the best things in the world are the silly little moments that aren't that special, but turn out to be the ones that mean the most, like.... when Jessica, my li'l Mono-Mono, wore her birthday crown upside down and helped make her own birthday cake....
Or when she was so delighted by her birthday balloon that she kept bouncing it up-and-down and giggling.
Or just.... all of these.
|I know what you're thinking, and her nose was just itchy.|
I drove all the way up to California from Montana with them, and it was great fun, despite almost sliding into a police officer and getting back pains from sitting too long. (Also, tickle fights with the driver is monstrous fun because the passenger (me), automatically has the advantage, and I love that.)
Maria and Tim are best buds and took loads of opportunities to show it.
My brother got married to the best of girls, and it's the first wedding I've been to where I actually had fun. I danced (twice!), and the crowd of us that sat at the same table were all a blast to be around, and it was kind of golden, that day.
Chloe and Sammi Toink were absolutely enchanted by baby Dominic and have decided that they want a baby brother ASAP.
Sometimes we teach our nieces and nephews a few things that could come in handy later.
And other times we walk to the beach and frolic...
Sometimes we go out for sushi, and marvel at how much we like it.
Anyone else go to Civil War and marvel* at how well they portrayed both sides of the argument? Even if I'd wanted to, I couldn't have chosen a side, (and since I was aggressively Team Get Along, it was doubly hard.) and right now, I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO BE BROS AGAIN.
*See what I did there?
We went on a hike up by Fallen Leaf Lake and it was glorious. (Apart from a few... hiccups. *Looks accusingly at someone*)
I WAS CONTACTED BY VIDA AND IT'S COOL, AND I'LL KEEP YOU UPDATED, BECAUSE IT'S VERY EXCITING AND I'M SO THRILLED I MAY TAKE A NAP.
Toink picked me flowers and it was the sweetest thing of ever.
It's been a tricky couple of weeks for me. We've got some stuff going on that's kind of overwhelming and I wasn't up to drawing. Which is unfortunate, because I have lots of inspiration for it, I'm just tired and unmotivated.
I've been getting in some sick hours at work, which is good, cause I'm kinda feeling broke-ish.
We went shooting again, which is most agreeable after a bad week, and I'm seriously considering buying a glock 19, cause it's fits my tiny hands, and it's good for concealed carry, and I want that. lol.
Sometimes the only thing that makes me feel better is listening to Il Volo sing.
Other times it's ice cream.
I'm going to be 21 in like two weeks, and this delights me.
I feel like I was going to say something super poetic, or super funny, but I can't remember which, so here's a picture of Amy and I after successfully setting up a wedding.
What's the best thing that's happened to you since March?
Do you like sushi?
Do you normally have fun at weddings?
How are you even doing?
Love you all!
