Dustin and I were walking through NC State University campus taking pictures. We came up to the brick yard and there was a dad who had taken his two daughters there to ride bikes. I was like "aww look at that, that's cute" Dustin had the "aww" look on his face (ok I might have imagined that)
(the brickyard... see the bike?)
Anyways... so later we were walking down Hillsborough street trying to avoid the drunk guy asking for money and turned to Dustin and said, "We should move to Raleigh and then every Sunday you can take the kids up to NC State to ride bikes".....(pause).... "while I'm at Archivers**!"
Ok maybe I actually convinced him NOT to have kids.... hmm... in retrospect I should have left out the Archivers thing... and added something about engineering.... you can pretty much get Dustin to do anything if you can relate it to NC State or engineering... for example I should have said"
"Dustin, don't you want to move back to Raleigh, home of NC State, GO WOLFPACK (insert wolfpack hand gesture thing) then every Sunday you can take our little engineering babies up to NC State, GO WOLFPACK (insert wolfpack gesture) where you can teach them how to ride bikes in the brick yard and take them on a tour of all the NC State Campus engineering buildings and teach them all about this great school ... and engineering... GO WOLFPACK (insert wolfpack gesture)
yeah that would have worked better....
**FYI Archivers is a scrapbook store that I spent a little too much money at this past weekend.... just in case you didn't know what one was....

Yep… that’s the manual to my camera… I figure I’ve had the camera for 3 years it’s about time I learn how to use it! I will post my progress (if I make any!).
Projects I'm working on: I still want to start an etsy shop but that idea hasn’t gone any further. I also have came up with a couple class ideas and have to have proposals in by the end of the week to the store owner so I am still working on those. And my most urgent project is travel journals for our road trip. Yeah that’s right Mom and Danielle, I’m creating travel journal/mini books. And you are going to like them, and use them! Deal with it! Here are some of the supplies I plan on using. I’m going for a distressed/vintage travel theme…
Budget Update: Well I was definitely over budget BUT wasn’t doing too badly….that is until we went to Raleigh and I went to Archivers for the very first time (and second time... yeah I went twice!). I wouldn’t have done too badly except I found a lot of 7 gypsies stuff I needed to make travel journals. Oh well… there’s always next month….
Road Trip Update: Mom, Danielle and I have decided to stick with the VA/NC mountains idea and have even booked hotels!!! Go us!!
A cuteness update: Not to be outdone by all the cute kittens here are pictures of Cinnamon looking just as cute... but much much bigger...ok lets be honest... it looks like he ate the kittens...

And here's the one I want.... he's a little bit chubby, fluffy, and the cutest thing I've ever seen!
Scene: Somewhere out in nature. Melissa is taking pictures of a tree, leaf, or some random pile of dirt . Dustin out of nowhere runs by and randomly jumps off a tree stump or something.
Dustin: OWW! That hurt!
Melissa: Hey! I didn't get a photo of that go back and do it again!
Dustin: No it hurt
Melissa: But I want a photo. It probably won't hurt the second time (giant smile)
And one of me. Not nearly as dramatic... Actually I probably jumped way WAY higher, but Dustin was taking the picture.... jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, (Can I help it if these photos make me think of House of Pain?)
