i mentioned recently that one of my favorite shows is dirty jobs. well, i watched an episode featuring geoduck farmers the other day and it was by far one of the most disgusting things i've ever seen. geoduck is actually pronounced like gooey-duck. it's something like a clam, but it's got this long siphon thing coming out of it. it's really gross. if a re-run comes on, i recommend watching it. yes, i think it's funny when things are gross. :)

people actually eat these things!!

you think i look like a guy???

i found this website where you can upload a picture of yourself to compare it with celebrity faces and find out who you look most like. i thought, why not? it could be fun. so, i took a picture of myself with my cell phone and uploaded it to my computer and onto this website. it scanned my picture and posted my results. i was very happy to see i had been compared to the likes of anne hathaway and kate beckinsale and then, to my deep dismay i saw that they also compare your face to those of the opposite sex. i do not want to know what guys i look most like!!!! this guy, who i've never heard of was the one they apparently think i look like:

i think i'll leave it at that.

killing me

i hope this isn't too vague or confusing...

i've found that without even realizing it, i've begun to kill the critic in me. i like myself so much more when i'm just a little less critical and a little more loving and accepting. i think i was way to critical as a teen. i can see why people saw me as cold or distant. i'm not that person anymore. i love the things God can do in you when you let go. it's so much easier to let go than to hold on to things that seem important and ultimately will never make a difference.

i had a conversation with my mom's boyfriend last night that really made me think. we were talking about choices that people make. my question is, are the choices i'm making and the things i am doing going to make a difference or matter in the grand scheme of things? i hope so. i love conversations that make me think and change.

dirty jobs is one of my new favorite shows.

cleanliness is next to Godliness

yesterday, i spent all morning and most of the afternoon cleaning my house from top to bottom...i know how it sounds, but i really enjoy doing it when i'm the only one there. lorin was out to lunch with 2 really cool guys, so i had free reign. i love to put on some music (which artist is dependant on my mood-yesterday was allison krauss and union station) and just clean till i pass out. after i was done cleaning, we went to pastor mike's house to swim because it was hotter than a habanero outside. then we went to my mom's and hung out with her and tim. both were fun, but the part i enjoyed the most was getting home and smelling my clean house. there's nothing better than coming home to a clean house and freshly changed sheets. it's my favorite.

so...it's been a while

it seems like forever since i last blogged. i don't even really have much to talk about. camp went really well. i love the fact that the only thing the teens talked about when we got home was how much God touched them in every service. that's success to me. we're gearing up for our missions trip to peru. my husband is going but i'm not. it's weird to think it's been a whole year since guatemala...it doesn't seem that long. well, since i've probably put sang-won su to sleep already, i'll post this picture of our new dinette in hopes it will arouse some interest:

i know...thrilling, right???
