Tutti Frutti!

So I don't usually take photos of my food. I don't really have a good reason except that when I am out to eat somewhere, I am either too busy talking to remember to snap a picture, or I am so effing hungry when the food hits the table that by the time I even think of bringing my camera out, my plate looks like a wild animal attacked it. Or the food is gone.

I am trying to remember to take more pictures when I go out, though. I love looking at pictures. LOOOOOVE it. My dream is to have the walls of our house covered in tons of framed photos of our adventures and our friends and major moments in our life.

**Here is where you excuse me for not having a SINGLE wedding picture up in my house yet. It's only been a year...**

So in the spirit of taking more pictures, here are a few from last weekend! Saul and I went to a little frozen yogurt place near our house on Sunday evening and I can say with 100% certainty that we will be going back. I'm not the hugest dessert person, and since we've cut a lot of crap out of our diet over the last year or so, we don't often have ice cream in the house. Frozen yogurt is supposed to be better for you, though, right? Yeah, well, even if it's not, this shit was soooo good.

Tutti Frutti, oh Rudy...

There were instructions for us Fro-Yo novices

An entire wrap-around wall full of flavors! And ooohhh...those tiles...

The cheesecake was NON-FAT! I died right then and there.
And then filled myself a cup.

So many toppings!
The fact that the yogurt was fat free cancels out the chocolate chips, right?


I spy with my little eye...sour Gummi worms!

"You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found (not) wanting."
Name that movie and I will love you forever.

Happy Thursday! It's almost Friday!!

Love you like family

Other things may change us, but we start and end with family

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

The love of a family is life's greatest blessing

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.

Treat your family like friends and your friends like family.

Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.

The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, is in its loyalty to each other.

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.

A happy family is but an earlier heaven.

I have been sucked in

Wondering where I've been lately? Possibly missin' you a little daily Cheryl internet action?

(Ok, that sounded dirty and I really didn't mean for it to....)

Well kids, fret not - I am definitely still alive. We went out to dinner for Saul's birthday, I've been running, going to work...the usual.

I have, however, become one of THOSE PEOPLE. You guys, I never thought I would be this person, but I soooo am...

...I am officially addicted to my iPhone.

(God, that sounds so frickin queer)

I am obsessed. Saul and I bought the 4's for each other in January, when he was ready to throw his iPhone 3 out the window because it was running so dang slow. He ran a software update and lots of other boring tecchie stuff later his phone had just about had it. As in, it was taking somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 minutes to send a text message and his head pretty much exploded every time he tried to open an app.

I'd held out on the iPhone thing for a long time because, I reasoned, I sit at a computer all day, and then have my laptop at home at night. I couldn't imagine situations where I would need to kill time playing a game. then I played the games.

I found myself regularly stealing Saul's phone in the evenings and playing DoodleJump or PocketGod. He would sigh, shake his head, and tell me to get my own damn phone before snatching it away from me. I would tell him I just wanted to play for a few minutes...I didn't need my own phone for that - I could just use his.

When I started asking him to download apps for me, he kind of drew the line. He downloaded a few when I asked, and he even downloaded a Twilight game without me asking because he knew I would like it (the game sucked, FYI - got deleted the next day), but when I started making lists of stuff I wanted to play, he shut me down.

So now I have my own iPhone and oh my god, I get it. It's awesome. I loooove the camera. I use it all the time. And the games....ooooohhh....I love the games!

A few favorites...

Angry Birds.
Duh - this is like, a standard. I also bought Angry Birds Seasons, because I just needed more.

Mega Jump.
This is like DoodleJump, but brighter and more insane. I love it.

Tiny Wings.
My newest game. I have played this for like, 2 hours already.

Robot Unicorn Attack!
This is originally from Adult Swim...? It's ridiculous. Also, the soundtrack is heavy metal, which is just even MORE ridiculous.

If you don't have an iPhone, you don't understand. I know. I used to be one of you. But now, I am converted and will forever be a faithful follower.

iPhone, I love you!

32 looks so good on you!

Happy birthday, Saul!

You truly are the best thing that's ever happened to me.

I love you!
