I'm in a car now with Disney Prince Hair Brandt, pointed toward St. George. I'm not driving! Let's all calm down. I don't text while driving OR blog while driving. I only eat, brush my teeth, change my clothes, and occasionally nap. You guys, the half Ironman begins in about 36 hours. I'm mostly freaking out because of the race but also kind of freaking out because Brandt just told me we are out of gas and I haven't seen civilization for a LONG time.

And now, your Pictures and Distractions.

Rebecca bought this lamp for me. Actually, first she bought a different lamp and I told her I wanted this one instead. And she had to venture back out into the rain for it. BECAUSE I'M THAT KIND OF PERSON.

I made pumpkin soup and bread on a rainy weekend day.

Matt painting an onion at Art Night this week. I asked him if he would paint me wearing the Heart of the Ocean next week. He just stared at me and then went back to work. I think he's excited. 

And for Art Night I made blueberry banana bread and gossiped on the phone.

Rebecca, our pet lamb, and I posed for our family picture just before Rebecca ABANDONED me for Paris this week.
