Holga Shmolga

Around Christmas I acquired 2 amazing Holga cameras. Holgas let in crazy light leaks, double expose, and super saturate. They're wild and unpredictable. I'm a big fan. Here are a few from my first roll.
This picture of my sister, Brie, is my favorite.

Ichetucknee River Adventure

Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about going to the river? Well, here is the documentation! It was a super fun trip that I hope we can emulate soon. Look at my cute friends! Next time you're in North Florida make sure to find some time to float down the Ichetucknee River.

I used to fall asleep at church... but it's not the same

I have a beautiful queen size bed with a beautiful headboard... but if I didn't I would need this one. Who knew I could so easily combine my love for pews AND sleeping? Can someone please make this happen?

This is me from about 6 years ago posing in a park with a trash bag. It made me laugh out loud. Thank you facebook.

don't waste your life

This video is seriously one of my favorite things. I know people tend to skip over videos posted on blogs but if you have the time it's really worth it. I probably watch this about once a week. John Piper is always speaking the truth into my life.

Just shootin the breeze

Well, yesterday I joined the Peace/Hancock Gun Club. And by joining the gun club, I mean I shot Jonny and Ray's guns.
All the smoke.
Leanne is basically a pro now.
How does 16 year old Louch always end up hanging out with the 20 somethings?
Jonny Peace is always packing heat. Also, this was taken about 2 hours after he preached a sermon.
Dumb hat, cool gun.
Breaking the rules...
Grossface roommates.

Afterwards we had an impromptu ice cream social/taboo party at my house. Sadly, this was not documented.

how about that blood

Okay, I know I mentioned this earlier but I'm really loving the True Blood season 3 advertising campaign. They are so clever. The creative elements of this show blow me away every time.

This blows me away too. I know, I know. Soon my blog will tagged as highly innapropriate. Sorry to all you boys that read this (or like the two of you). Swoooooooooooon.

Now I should probably go pray...

dream couch

This might be too ridiculous, even for me, but I really really love it.

Sadly, no man will ever marry me if I have that couch...

Good things not by Martha Stewart

Good things:
1. My new shampoo. My hair has never felt so soft and clean.

2. Away We Go. I watched this for the first time on Saturday and loved it.

3. True Blood season 3. It started back last night and didn't disappoint. Also, can we please talk about how great these ads are?

4. Boy scout popcorn. YUM.

what it do

I haven't posted a blog in forever. Why? I have no idea. I guess it's because I've been preoccupied with random happenings like river trips, leading small group, craft time with Leanne, domestic society, etc. Or maybe it's because I have nothing witty or cute to say.

Anyway, I'm back! Look at me and the Biebz. Aren't we cute?

- shopping with the girls and celebrating Liz's upcoming wedding
- spending far too much time in anthropologie
- new summer sandals from urban outfitters
- tera misu
- Pearly-poo sleepover
- staying up too late laughing with Leanne
- waking up too early
- McDonald's frappes. Yum.
- floating down the Ichetucknee River
- being flipped in my tube by Jonny Peace. RUDE.
- watching Ms. Moogoo
- delish cookout food
- playing a terrible game of taboo
- watching Can't Hardly Wait, one of my favorite movies
