And to think, all these years I've just been flushing all my "Cookie Sticks" down the toilet!?!

If only I had known they were marketable.
I could've been RICH!!

While we were watching the election last night, Cokie Roberts came on the TV. I noticed that she reminded me of someone, but I just couldn't place who. Then it hit me.

I pulled up these two pictures to show Lori and after she finished laughing, informed me that I had to put up a post of it.

I actually like Cokie Roberts, and kinda feel bad about this. So I'm putting the blame on my wife. LOL

The 'Rents come to Visit

Man, I realized how lazy I've become with my posts lately. Sorry about that. I promise I'll try harder in the future. (Please don't beat me again, I'll be good).

This is the weekend in pictures Part Deux that Lori promised you a couple of weeks ago.


These crazy kids came to visit US for THEIR 44th wedding anniversary. I know, you're jealous. Don't be - they wore us out!

Thursday night - ate here. (Yeh, seafood in Virginia) and the lobster bisque made us all extremely happy.

Lori worked while we immersed ourselves in history at the Bull Run Battlefield. Look at Jackson standing there like a stone wall!!

Explored Great Falls National Park and found that it was indeed Great.

Anniversary dinner at "Carmello's" jealous. Very very jealous. Who knew you could mix Portuguese and Italian?

Back to the cabin in WV. At peace with nature. Ohmmmm.

Apple Butter Festival in Berkeley Springs, WV. Lori Looooves her some apple butter.

MMMMMmmmm….pork sammiches. Th-Th-That's all folks!! (not really, there's more)

Random man scared of me coming back with some homemade lemonade. I seem to have that effect on people sometimes. LOL

Berkeley Springs has the smallest National Park in the U.S. For real... No, seriously.

George Washington’s Bath Tub…Really? That's what they tell me...

Oooooooo, nature's mirror. Nice.

(Lori swears that these trees look like a bag of gummi bears)

Saturday Night - Dinner and s’mores around the campfire.
(Lori plans on practicing her s’more making at home in the fireplace. She will NOT be out-s’mored!)
Anne was kind enough to play the harmonica for us.

Off to the Shenandoah Valley

Very Pretty! (See what I did there? I could be talking about the women OR the valley. I'm getting the hang of this thing called marriage.)

The color of the trees were awesome!

Lori, Dad and I went hiking in the Shenandoah Valley and saw...


Don't look now, but... seriously don't look. Nature calls. And whatever you do, don't take a... picture (too late).

Happy Couple.

Happy Family.

Seriously. I didn't even make it 6 months. I've already lost my wedding band. I've noticed since we got to Virginia, and the weather has been cooler, my band has been a lot looser on my finger. We went shopping last night at the mall, and on the way home, I realized I was missing something. We went back into every store and looked everywhere, but to no avail. So until I find a replacement, I have a non-tanned outline on my ring finger to remind me of my eternal carelessness. Like I need a reminder of that. : (

I was looking through the pictures I've taken with my iPhone since I got it, and thought I'd share some of the funnier ones with you. They made me laugh, at least.


Unintentional sex talk on a bumber sticker.
"Well, it is the law, and I'm an upstanding citizen." (no pun intended)


Mobile pet grooming... or euthanization service? You be the judge.


I got a chuckle out of this one I took at the St. Pete Grand Prix. Notice the race car in the picture going 200 mph. The little blue sign on the fence reads: Handicapped Track Crossing. "Come on Grandma, you can make it across if you hurry."


Speaking of the St. Pete Grand Prix, I took my dad with me and it started to rain. Sans umbrella, he came up with this lovely idea. (hiding my face in my hands)


I went to the dentist to get a root canal, and they didn't bother to ask if I wanted a silver or white cap. You can see what they picked out for me. **bling bling** I started calling it Robo-tooth.


If you really need this, you should seriously re-evaluate your life. That's pretty much the end for you.


"Hey boss, how do you spell Utah again?... uh boss... oh, you're busy? I'll just figure it out on my own then." Sarah was gracious enough to take Lori and I to an Orioles game, and we all got a chuckle out of this sign.

p.s. I don't know why the spacing between pictures is so off. I haven't mastered the whole Blogger layout yet apparently.

I was going to write about our awesome Labor Day weekend today, but instead, I'm going to tell you some good news!

Yesterday, we talked to a mortgage lender and by the end of the day, we found out we were approved for a house!! YAY!! Go us! (Now we just have to find the house). This is a load off both of our minds, since I haven't been working in the area yet...

Which leads me to more good news!

I got my first freelance editing job! I start tomorrow morning at 9:30. The production company owner told me it would probably be a couple days a week, which is great, because it will leave me more time to find other freelance opportunities. I'm very excited to be working again in the field I love.

Good times!
