That would be so fun!

Totally proud to say I've walked this planet for 52...almost 53 years. Although, there is a little vanity involved, I'll admit. I guess I look good for my age, because I enjoy the gasps and "no way!!!" that usually follows.

Are you kidding me?!?! Girl, if I had a fraction if that talent, I'd be painting all day everyday, and selling them left and right! That is amazing!

Steph, I do so love your stories. 2 things: we're in Seattle and just spent a week in Vancouver for a softball tournament, and I am such a wuss about being in another country, I'm ashamed. And. I got brave and put on a tank top and shorts to watch a fame in 97 degree heat because I was melting. I'm so silly super self conscious of my "fat" arms....and after the game, my sweet girl said she glanced over and saw me and thought how cute I looked. Thank you for everything. Love you to bits.

That is the best! Soup to nuts, that post could have been written by me....except for the Instagram part. Genius! And I have to tell you....at 11pm when we pulled up to some sketchy travelodge next to a trailer court, with 40 motorcycles parked out front....as my husband went in to see if they had a room for us, my 13yo leaned over the seat and whispered...."Mom?....this looks like someplace where there might be a zombie apocalypse....."

For real? That's like out of a magazine.....I'd do Subway sandwiches. I'm shamed and inspired. Shamefully inspired. You go!

Yay for new floors! I like....4 & 5. But you shouldn't ask me. When we painted our bedroom, I think we had 9 swatches painted on the walls and then we reap intend over our decision. And it was basically white. Lame, we are.

Ok. You just made a lightbulb turn on in my head. Duh! when the Seattle drizzle gets to be too much for me, I go to the gym (it's really tiny, with 2 treadmills...at our golf course) and walk on the treadmill there. And there is always some guy (usually my husband...) watching Sports Center on the tv. HOW did I not think of this?!?!? I could totally take my Ipad and plug in my headphones. Game. Changer. And I like to walk outside and breath real air...only ever listen to books on Players I get at the library. A good book, and I will walk 5 miles easy.

Awwww Cathy- I remember when my big boy went to 5th grade camp up at Warm Beach, and there was no such thing as Skype. Ha! Or anything close. And then he went to Leadership camp at Mount Olympus (somewhere on the south side of Mt Rainier....no cell towers....), and I agonized for days. Luckily he is at the UofW and my anxiety has lessened...and you're right, how do the Missionary Mom's do it?!!??!

Serious! How much did you pay for Miss Underwood???? I am so jaded by the prices here in on the Eastside....
Oh brave girl....continue to be strong. I am so lucky my pain is minimal and helped by acupuncture, but my DH struggles constantly. You make my heart break with the vision of you crying in your car. Baby steps is all I can say....baby steps.

Hey Alissa - I tried to comment a few days back,but not sure if it "took" - but I wanted to say I don't know which I love more, your JYC or this project. Maybe I just love your style. Thanks so much for the inspiration. And crush? Nobody come to mind, really. Except...I do have a picture of George Clooney and Brad Pitt sitting together on the set of Oceans, entitled 'Proof that God exists' and I've always said if God really existed (totally tongue in cheek) - I'd be sitting right between them!
Yay! I love that J was there and you have pictures to save the memory. My son taught my daughter to ride her bike (he's 9 years older than her) and I'm so happy I was able to snap some pictures. Go Harper!!!

We downloaded an app called Boost Magic - seems to help a little. Back/hip pain -aughhh! I call it my pregnancy pain - 21 years ago it started. And I swear the spot where I had my epidurals is so sore and achy sometimes. Acupuncture helped my dad with is hip pain....but I just told my husband the other day I may need a new hip!

Excellent and so inspiring, Nichol! I love your sketches - one of my favorite albums is from the class I took from you in 2007 - my favorite photos :)

I can only partly identify...I'm a bookkeeper and I just took on my 4th account - 4 different versions of Quickbooks on 4 very different computers, in 4 very different settings. And for some reason I can't say "no" to my PTA president, so I wear 3 hats at my daughter's school right now. Keeps me a little schizophrenic ;)
