A hodge podge of awesome

I have so much to tell you! Where do I begin…

First: I have to tell you about the enchiladas. Remember me crying about them on Monday? How I went on and on about how the leftovers would make me gag? Weeeeell, I’m just as surprised to tell you that I love the leftovers. Sooo much more than the day I made them. I’m very happy I didn’t throw them away, which I almost did because they’re delicious! –who knew!?

appleWhen you were a little girl, did you ever twist the stem off your apple while singing the ABC’s? I found some of you hadn’t heard of this, and was surprised. I thought surely it was a requirement growing up a girl.

What you do is twist and sing, and whatever letter the stem pops off on (naturally, not forced) is the first letter of the boy you’ll be with. Well its not much of a surprise I still do this as an adult. One night, I twisted and sang and wouldn’t you know, it popped right off on “G”. I screeched my delight right there in the kitchen. {yes, it’s a little pathetic..}

One A lot of you asked about how I shot my self portraits. I shot it with a tripod and remote with my 35mm lens. For the most part I kept my settings at:
aperture: f/3.2
shutter speed: 1/200
ISO: 200
So..there you go for all you inquiring mind..(s)

Because putting it on instagram (I’m emilygrapes if you want to follow) and twitter wasn’t enough yesterday, I just had to (I’m sorry Jennifer!) share this today. I’m still laughing over her accidental comment. STILL laughing!! I never said I was 100% mature. I think this post proves that back in September…and I just busted up laughing re reading that post..

…..aaaaaaand just busted up laughing posting this picture! *catching breath*
JJ! If you knew what you’ve done to me with this, my word girl! I think I’ll be rolling for days on this one!! Clearly she meant ‘dogs’ from yesterday’s post…clearly… Pin It Now!

I didn't want to comment on the earlier post for fear of being rude, BUT, now that you brought it up, I still can't quit laughing!! Thanks for the giggle, it's a good way to start the day.

I used to do the apple thing all the time!
And that comment is too funny! But after being teased so much, Jen may think twice and read over them 100 times before leaving you a comment again.

Yes! I totally did that all the time with the apple stem. I'm not sure who I learned it from... probably someone at school. I definitely did it while dating my husband and forced the stem out when it got to C, haha!

My apples don't look that tasty. Rude.

Pushups, done.

Jossie said...

That is hilarious!

Ross said...

That is too funny! I still can't stop laughing.

Megan said...

Oh my gosh, that is so funny!!! And awkward and I love that you posted it again! Haha!!

Jess said...

That's so funny! I hate autocorrect (not sure if that's what happened) but it makes for some stomach clutching guffaws doesn't it?
Also, that game, I played on my church van in High School and ended up with D. Now the only D in my group was a guy named David. And that wasn't going to happen because he just wasn't my type.
I think back on that day every once in a while, because in Dec. I'll have been married to my husband, Dave, for 13 yrs. Different dude, just in case you were curious.
