Maya, being uncharacteristically calm and sleepy. I think she knew something was up when I started packing. I'll miss this cute little face!
After flying all day, it was nice to be welcomed home by my parents and my pups. This isn't my greatest picture of mellow Tom, but I was tired...
I'm not quite sure how this started, but it's a roommate tradition now. Every time there's a big event (starting school, starting break, coming back from a gig, etc), we give each other Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate. This is one of the yummy bars awaiting my arrival. I like these kinds of traditions.
It's a little chilly here in STL, and these super-soft slippers keep my feet nice and warm.
One of my holiday card options - I figure its not too much of a giveaway since not everyone will get one of these.
LA, who got me hooked into Twilight, and was gearing up to leave STL/USA for Germany, wanted to see this movie. At the 'last minute', we decided to see if there were any tickets left for the midnight showing. Not quite sure why, but we did. And there were. The first movie was re-released into theatres as well and we decided to see it. Probably not a bad idea as it killed time so we didn't fall asleep before the midnight showing and prevented us from being in too many stupid long lines. However, this was my first and last midnight showing. Rabid and screaming fans (of all ages from tween to adult) are just not my (or LA's) cup of tea. It was an experience and the movie was worth it. Let's hope she's back for the next one...
Sometimes you find beauty in the most unexpectedly places. This is Weldon Springs, MO.
This is Eli, LA's dog. I helped LA get last minutes details together/pack/sort/etc. Eli doesn't like his picture taken too much but he obliged for a few cute photos.
Here's my lovely Pippin, who gives me a great big smile. I love this pup.
I really don't like mushrooms unless they're disguised. My roommate found a great stuffed cap recipe that makes them tasty to me.
Hands down my favorite crackers ever. Thank you, Trader Joe's for stocking these delightful snacks.
