I did it.
I broke down and bought a camera.
I now plan on pursuing a career in photography. I'll start with babies in potted plants. (Yuck. I will never subject my children to this. I believe these very pictures are a direct link to the recession...and the rapture...and I'm sure Oprah's involved somehow.)
But I do plan on recording my semester abroad...so get pumped.
Here's the turtle pin my roommate gave me! Sadly, I lost it the very day I took this picture. I like to think that some other person will find him though and perhaps, they'll be best friends. (Most likely, he'll get eaten alive by a lawn mower. Classic golf courses.) These were all things in my purse, so also in the picture, is my phone, a bracelet I won, the pick of the week from Starbucks, a bouncy ball I purchased for a quarter, cold medicine, I think I even see a deck of cards...what am I doing with all this crap?
Actual turtle (well, tortoise) and actual boyfriend. And yes, Spartacus did try to bite his finger. (Spartacus is the tortoise, not my boyfriend. It's a common misconception.)
Here are some of my favorite people in the world. We were visiting Jill's new apartment. Little did we know, we were also visiting the thousands of ants that had moved in, as well.
So we decided to move outside.
(Drew hates this.) Finally, here's said boyfriend holding my jubilee of saints necklace. I'm not Catholic, but my sister gave me a St. Christopher, Luke and Francis pendant...I wasn't sure which one to wear, so I figured better be safe than sorry and wear them all! I wear this necklace everyday and it's one of my favorite things in the world, hearing those little charms clink against one another. I can't tell you what each saint represents, but the necklace is very special to me.
So that's my weekend in a nutshell.
