college flyer

Okay... i am doing some graphic work for the youth dept at my church... here is my debut piece. Remember I havent used Illustrator in forever! so i drew the little comic guy and then did a little bit with background, type and that is about it. It is a start. Tell me what you think. There are two of them because they will be a half page mailer.

I will be back in a week or so with lots of new pics. we are headed off the destin this weekend and then we will be in bermuda all next week. stay tuned!

A Visit with Aunt Nikki

So I mentioned that my sister, Amber, came to visit this past weekend but am just now getting to posting a few pictures of the event. These first 2 pictures are of Kaylen at a Teacher's Retirement Brunch. She looked so cute but i really didnt get any good pics of her. My sister did and i am waiting for her to send me some... kaylen may be 3 years old before that happens... if i know my sister! so these will have to suffice. But believe me when i say she was adorable!

Cinco De Mayo por Kayeln!

So we have had an extremely busy weekend. On Saturday we went to see Spiderman 3, went out to eat, and then went over to a friends house (and my sister was in town). So while we were at the Turnbull's that night Kaylen passed out under the buffet table in Ashley's dinning room. We say she partied a little too hard on Cinco De Mayo!!! Anyway, it was too cute so here is a little snapshot of it... courtesy of Miss Ashley.

In unrelated news... Allen and I joined a church last night. This is the first church we have become members of as adults. We are now methodists. It was really fun to be a part of the festivites/ceremony. They did a great job of getting everyone plugged in! I think i am going to do some artwork stuff for the High School and Jr. High programs. Allen wants to work with the older kids. And i am going to help out with the nursery! Anyway, the name of the church is Cove United Methodist Church... aka Cove Church.

Warning: No pictures in this post!

I know, I am not including pictures in this post and that is almost a cardinal sin for this blog! People only come for the pictures. I cant blame you... that is all I look at on blogs. But I am feeling the need to write about my next adventure.

The Wet Dog Triathalon.

It is a fairly small triathalon (i am not sure if that isnt an oxymoron... sort of like pretty ugly.) Anyway, it is a 400 meter swim, 10k bike and a 5k run. So you would think I would already be in fairly good shape for this thing... I mean, I did just run 13 stinking miles! NOT THE CASE!!!! 2 days ago I biked for 20 min. and then ran for 15 (all in the gym). The biking nearly killed me. By min 16 my legs were totally cramping. I biked through it and immediately got on the treadmill. I had a great run! I was already warmed up and so I just flew. Anyway, I went swimming yesterday. YIKES!!! I can barely lift my arms today! I swam 1000 yards. With stopping of course. I sincerely thought I was going to drown. Some of you may already know this but last year I was on a team and did one part of the wet dog: the swimming! The only problem is that I havent swam in about 8 months or longer! Probably since I did the wet dog last year. Anyway, all I can say is it was rough! I have talked 2 friends into doing this with me (one is still on the fence, ahem... Emily!) Hollie is in and I dont think I will have to motivate her to stick with it to terribly much but Emily will take some convincing. After my 2 days of training so far I am going to need some convincing! It will be tough but well worth it. And I am looking forward to our training together. These 2 girls are some of my favorite people!

Anyway, stay tuned... I will let you know how we do and who sticks with it. Training is going to be interesting! Well, I hope the few people who read this have a good weekend!

We are doing whistle stop, spidey 3 with good friends, church membership class (we are becoming methodist!) and with all of that my sister is coming in town! Busy times filled with fun events! BTW... 13.5 days of school left!!!!!! But who's counting?

Country Music 1/2 Marathon Pics Cont.

Here are a few more pictures of Allen and I at the race last weekend. The first one is so that you get a glimpse of how many people were there. 30,000 give or take a few!

Remember that to know what our real time is you must subtract 40 minutes. Because we crossed the start line that much after the race began!
