Shake It Like a Polaroid Picture

Oh man! This weekend has just been crrazzzyy! I feel like I have pretty much gone non-stop. But I kept getting invites to do things, and if you know me you know I am always up for a fun time and when one of my friends wants to go out, I rarely say no.

Last night my friend Tina wanted to go out on the town, so of course she didn't have to twist my arm. Do I feel some pics about to go down?! I do think so.

We met up with some friends at a local bar downtown.




We laughed sooo hard at this picture because Josh failed at every attempt to take a decent picture. This was his worst shot. haha he is actually pretty cute, but he looks like a creep-o in this picture. Here are several more attempts.




Then I had to show him just how a great picture is taken:



As the night went on several more people showed up to hang out and I saw a lot of old friends. I tend to put the camera away after a few drinks though, because things tend to get a little difficult to keep up with after that. haha.

P.S. Aren't the little Polaroid cool? My friends told me about this program that you can find and download here. I just love it! Its so cool, this little camera pops up and all you do is drag and drop your pictures into the camera and out pops your Polaroid from your camera. Of course, you have to wait for the picture to develop. No shaking!

Today is a catch up day for sure, after that wild weekend. I woke up and fixed up some blueberry waffles with sliced banana and strawberries and maple syrup.


Then for lunch I was craving something just warm and good and comforting. What did I come up with?!


Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana DUH!

And just to show the ooey gooey goodness of the sandwich I present to you evidence #1



Also, this morning I was surfing the web for some owl tattoo ideas and check out what I found!


Its the tattoo that I described! An owl with the text "carpe diem", except I want "carpe noctem" and I want it a little smaller...and def somewhere less noticeable than smack dab on my arm. But other than that, thats it! I kinda thought it was an original idea, but guess not. haha. I still like it though...what do you guys think?

Ok Now its time for cleaning, running, tanning, and shopping with the sis. Then I gotta get up early to substitute teach for a Kindergarten class. AHH!!!

Hope everyone is having an awesome, relaxing Sunday.

Lots of Love, <3 Ems.

Hey girlie! im glad to hear that you had a fun weekend :) I looooove weekends like that!

I think the owl is still a cool idea - and when I saw your original post about it, it was definately something i'd never heard of...and hell, it is definately more original than a rose on the ankle or one of those dumb barbwire ring things. and really, why would you put carp diem with an owl? everyone knows owls mostly come out at night, hence, carp noctem (sp?) is obviously a much smarter idea. :)

have a great night!

sounds like you had a great weekend! i don't think i could handle the pain of a tattoo, but looks like you picked a cute one out! :)

I think that tat would be way cute smaller!! Owls (and elephants, in my opinion!) make everything so much cooler. ;)

Good luck with the kiddies tomorrow. :)
