2nd today

but it is important...
this is my new favorite human ever/possible future husband if i play my cards right *crossed fingers*

his name is vincent 
(ps... he can be kinda creepy when you just see him through their tinted windows... )
America, prepare to fall in love.




every kendra begins with K

christmas morning
wife opens a bunch of lame gifts. husband has a sneaky smile on his face. kids are asleep in the heaps of wrapping paper, and husband makes some lame comment about santa bringing one more gift. wife makes an equally lame comment and husband hands wife a box. wife opens it and there is a hideous necklace in there. she makes another lame comment about how santa has another gift and kisses dad. cue sappy "every kiss begins with kay" music...
annnnd scene.

no thank you.

i have never been into jewelry. i do like fun stuff, but not nice jewelry. i have never spent more than $15 on jewelery. ever.
i don't want diamond earrings
i don't want a gold bracelet
i don't want any of that.
the only jewelry i desire is an engagement/wedding ring
oh
and this...

your eyes are being dazzled by the Chanel Camellia ring. it comes in black, white, even diamond encrusted. but the white one is the only one that has my heart.
i discovered it a couple of years ago, and came to love it.
BUT THEN
while in CA shaynah and i took a walk down Rodeo drive, and popped into the Chanel store. my only purpose in going in was to see their nail polish colors, but...
as if light from heaven was beaming down into the store, i stumbled upon the jewelry case... and saw the ring with my own eyes.
it was the only time i have been dazzled by jewelry. i am pretty sure i left a puddle of drool for the rude sales lady to clean up.
i have no idea how much it costs. good thing too, because i would probably shovel together all the paychecks it would take to buy it.
but one day... oh, one day it shall be mine. just you wait. yes you.

you are WRONG Today show!

they said chivalry was dead. they had a full report about it.
and yes, in some places it is
but not totally
(ps, when i google image searched "chivalry", this is one of the pictures to pop up. and i am ok with that. because Charade is one of the best movies ever made. and cary grant is ALWAYS the correct answer:
who is the most charming man to ever walk the earth? should a guy wear a suit to a daytime wedding? how about to a nice dinner? are cleft chins attractive? would you like some cheese on your pasta miss? )

i think as a sgm girl, i am spoiled rotten. i don't think i have opened a door in one of our boys company in about 5 years. they always offer to drive (YES!) and walk us to our cars. i came to expect that the rest of the world was not so thoughtful...
but since then, i have gotten to know some of my male co-workers. we walked through the studio (where there is a door every 10 feet) and i didn't open A SINGLE ONE. NOT ONE.
Today at Auto Zone i bought some oil treatment that i just pour into the oil reservoir. In the 3 minutes it took for me to pour, 5 men asked if i needed help. i smiled sweetly and thanked them, but let them know i was fine. (the hood of my car was protecting me from the arctic wind, so i was actually better off...)
that is one of the perks of living in the south... gentlemen are everywhere

are you down? do you need a pick me up? did you sob after watching last night's ER with the return of Dr. Green... no? Um... me either.

But if i DID... then this website would've been exactly what i needed...

make sure you check back often. for example, as i type this, they are all sleeping. I only just learned that there are 6... not 5.
and last night they were super hyper... and a co-worker and i named all of them. we decided to use titles of narnia books
wardrobe, caspian, treader, chair and benatar (i named that one... because i like pat benatar.) since i was allowed to name one benatar, i promised that if a 6th one appeared, it would be named magician (though i wanted to name it nephew... but whatever)... and TADAAA! this morning i found magician! Yay puppies!

(this was a screen capture i did last night as we tried to name them all...)

PS- you might find yourself talking to them. or petting your computer screen. if so, do not be alarmed.

chapel THRILL

have you ever been to chapel hill? if not... GO
especially in the fall. the campus is gorgeous

shay and i went for an exhibition basketball game. over the years my love for sports has grown. my newest love is college basketball. and my team is CAROLINA BABY!


sadly, i don't own anything carolina blue. so we had to remedy that upon arriving on franklin street...

before
after
shaynah was an amazing tour guide! she gave me the history of everything, which was quite fun. i was pretty sure we had a crowd following us.

this is the old well. that is what it is called. because it is old. and a well. so there you go.

classic. the game was amazing, but we were both a little busy with the texting. what can i say... we are a hot feature. our phones were blowin' up!



I haven't talked about my boys in a while. and to be honest, i wasn't planning on it this week. because they played ugly. just plain ugly. yes, they won. but honestly, they did NOT deserve that W. except for 2 people.
but first...

FAIL

honestly jake... what is GOING ON???

but on a good note, someone was on FIY-AH! Single handed-ly saving my team.
Pep... I would like to dedicate this song to you...



the other one who saved the game... well done D!

shay and i went to chapel hill/apex this weekend

sunday afternoon we went on a lovely walk with some of the apex peeps.
i was in the front with shaynah, bethany and matt.

i all of a sudden realized i was surrounded by 3 of my favorite people in the universe.
so i decided to quickly document it.
all this happened within about 4 seconds.
and it went... a little something... a-like a-this... (and yes, i said all of this out-loud. shaynah quoted me on it later)

"i haven't taken any pictures today... one...
two...
three...
four...
...done."

it was a perfect moment.

*sigh*

Rocky: I think we make a real sharp couple of coconuts - I'm dumb, you're shy, whaddaya think, huh?
Rocky: You look really sharp tonight... i gotta go fight now. Don't leave town ok?
i don't think i could ever love another movie as much as this one.
also, Rocky might be the man of my dreams.
don't judge me.

wowzers



people need to calm the heck down.

Do we not serve the King of kings? Did he not call the sea to part? Did he not create the universe? Did he not knit each of us together in our mother's womb? Did he not send his perfect son as a sacrifice?

I cried last night. I was sad and anxious, but I know I serve the Heavenly Father. This did not slip between his fingers. He is not looking down at us saying "whoops..."
Last night as I got into bed I began to pray for our President Elect. That his heart would be softened to the unborn children of the world. But even more, that his main focus would be to bring glory to his creator.

we read this in bible study this week, and it has been on my heart today

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.


this one also broke my heart...
I love our mayor. He would have been an incredible Governor.
