the onions are here! (and an excuse note)


Oh boy, I am feeling some intense town pride--the Walla Walla Sweets are here!
 Also, what on earth am I supposed to do with a 25 lb. bag of giant onions?  We are just two people!  Who, let's be honest, don't normally eat a lot of onions.

It's going to be a super duper crazy month around here as we pack up, un-pack, re-pack, and then un-pack for good.  Are you feeling dizzy?  Me too.  So please do excuse the lack of interesting posts.  Hopefully once things settle down I will be back with lots to share.

Happy summer to you!

We're moving again next week.  Not into the house that we're *keep your fingers crossed* buying, but a different rental house.  It will be for just a few weeks, but goodness I am sure getting sick of moving! Here are some pics from our week.

Happy weekend!

glamor shots

Hi Guys!  It's me, Gesso.  I just thought I'd pop in and share these glamor shots my mom took of me.  She's a little obsessed with my good looks!  I mean, everytime I turn around, *snap* there's another picture being taken of me.  Geez mom, get a life!

Since everything is still packed (oh we've already mentioned that?  in about every post?), we've been a little bored.  I mean, no books, no colored pencils, no fabric, and would you believe it, they even left my basket of chewing shoes packed in a box!  YOU GUYS!!  What the heck am I supposed to chew on?
Last night my mom gave me some leftover pasta after dinner and guess what?  I threw it up!  All over the carpet!  And then I tried to eat it all over again.  My parents wouldn't let me finish though--they can be such a drag!
Anyway, it was really nice of you guys to drop by.

Handsomely yours,

spatulas are for homeowners

We thought it was the biggest treat to have someone come and pack up all of our junk when we moved.  I shamelessly sat outside and read a book while eating pretzels all day as the packers delicately disassembled our house.  I know!  Princess!


The only downside is that they didn't really get too specific in the labeling department.  So we have a billion boxes marked 'kitchen'.  And rather then unpack and unwrap every bit of kitchen equipment just to get to the bare necessities, we've just tried to make things work (lazy? maybe.).

And you know what?  A cheese slicer is the PERFECT spatula!  And who needs a can opener anyway?  And while we're on the subject, I haven't lost a single hair elastic or bobby pin while we've lived here because I only have three of each. 

These are my new favorite chocolate chip cookies.  They are so good!   And while I am missing my cookie scoop something fierce, I do appreciate the rustic look of spooning out my cookie dough by hand.

wedding weekend

My baby brother got married over the weekend.  It was such a sweet day and would you believe it, I didn't take a SINGLE photo.  Also, I forgot to pack Evan's suit pants (oops).  I'm not sure where my brain was hiding, but thanks to Camilla's handy camera and some early morning suit shopping, both of those problems were taken care of.

I am so excited for my brother and his new wife, because shoot, being married is the best.

millions of m's

I got recruited to be in charge of the Father's Day treat at church.  Which turned out to be rad because I finally got to fulfill my dream of filling a grocery basket to the brim with chocolate.  I could tell that my fellow shoppers were super jealous (or maybe they were just concerned?).
 Gesso and I spent the morning practicing self-control, and taping little tags to 110 bags of m&m's.

I got the free printable here, just in case you ever happen to find yourself in a similar situation :)
