What started as a little cleaning project this afternoon
turned into a drag everything out, get rid of stuff,
re-organize, and put it all back looking cuter than ever
kind of project.

My favorite part was the new bookshelves I created
out of old crates and the new color coded organization
of all my books :)

Tonight I went to Dallas to hear
one of the top wedding photographers in the US speak.
I met two of my other dallas photog friends there
(because going to those kinds of things alone can be so intimidating :P)
and had a lovely night soaking up all sorts of photography inspiration
and encouragement, and getting to hang out with fun photography people!

Today we had the most gloooorious weather.
I think spring is officially creeping in
because for days now it's been in the 70's and even 80's.

I had my bedroom window open all day while I worked
and when I went out to run errands this afternoon
I had my sunroof and windows open the whole time...
talk about happiness!

Nothing very interesting happened today...
just work :)

I finally had to rearrange my valentines day flowers
into smaller vases with the few remaining living blooms.
but aren't they pretty?!

The Boy and I went to his old church in Dallas today
to visit his friends there...
There's a little girl, named Ashley,
that comes to church with her grandmother,
and ever since I started visiting the church with The Boy
she's decided we're good friends and is always so excited when I come.
She's been wanting to go ice-skating with The Boy and I
ever since we told her last fall that we'd take her sometime.
(She loves to ice-skate, but she lives with her grandmother
who can't take her because of a bad back.)
So yesterday when she ran up to us to say hi
some of the first words out of her mouth
were to ask if we could go ice-skating.
The Boy and I didn't have any definite plans
for the afternoon so we said that we could :)

After lunch with two of the sweet older people
in the church that The Boy is good friends with,
we went ice-skating with Ashley at the galleria...
the last time I'd ice-skated there
was my 11th birthday :)

The Boy and I  competed to see who could fall the least
and we both made it to the very end of the day without falling...
about five minutes before we were done Ashley fell
and Josh was holding her hand so he went down too.
I, of course gave him a hard time about the fact that
he'd fallen and I hadn't,
and not 3 minutes later Ashley fell again and this time I was
the one holding her hand, aaaand fell hard on my rump.
The Boy had the cutest triumphant grin on his face
when I looked up at him...
(after making sure I was ok, of course)

The last day of the tournament
and I'm so proud of the little broskies!
One of them won the championship game in their division
one of them got 3rd place
and the other won 4 out of 6 games.
All in all a pretty good weekend :)

The Boy was able to come this afternoon after class
and watch the last few games... :)
Then when they were all done we all went
out to dinner to celebrate!

Today was the first day of the tournament
out of my three brothers they had 5 games collectively.
The state tournament is held in this huge sports complex
that has 12 courts all right next to each other
and there are games going on on each court
every second of the day from 8-11 PM.
It's craaaazy.  And fun!

I'm no sports photographer,
but the boys always ask me to bring my camera
and get some pictures of them playing...
and when I saw this one as I was looking
back through the pictures it made me smile :)

That's my brother in the white jersey with the ball
doing his mad air splits move :)
