chef joel.

scott's brother took over our apartment last night and cooked a super fun dinner in a super tiny kitchen.

so grateful to have him here. [even when he stays late at night to watch the soccer games with the LOUD horns coming from the crowds.
anyone else feel like that noise is slightly unbearable?]

scott snuck some random pictures of me playing at his desk. when i looked through my camera, i thought OH how weird my body looks with a blob sitting in the front of it. funny to see pictures of yourself in these kinds of phases. i feel like it's not really me. maybe that's why i'm totally fine displaying solo shots in an out of control way these days.

i told scott that girls really don't enjoy pictures from a downward angle. it's just not good for anybody. get with it. so he was like oh okay and then took this one:

hmm. yeah not quite this extreme, but - future grandparents - [you'll be glad to know] we're working on our picture taking skills before noah gets here. scott's good with numbers and memorizing the settings. i'll take on the creativity part. hopefully we'll balance each other out for this next phase of picture taking life.

too soon

to pack my hospital bag? absolutely.

do i care? nope.

did it anyway.

week 35

from the front.

to the side.

where oh where are you week 40?

happy anniversary to my mimi and papa. it was their 50th.

happy father's day to dad.
talked to him today to tell me that he just ate a cheeseburger, french fries, and baked beans at the lake. rub it in, dad.

happy father's day to scott.
we're celebrating at outback tonight. it's funny the restaraunts that turn into luxury as soon as you exit america and head over to the land of rice and noodles. it will be a 45 minute adventure to get to. and totally worth it.

Look who made it...

Yes, for those that were wondering, my (our) little brother Joel made it to HK safely and has been here almost a week now. Sorry for not posting anything earlier, it has been quite a busy past few days with more than half of our team leaving to visit the States or Germany. For those of you who don't know, Joel is staying with the guys on our team for about a month and then he will be teaching english with an organization here in the city. Needless to say, we are excited about having some good hang out time [side note: I just realized it has been more than six years since Joel and I have lived in the same city for longer than a couple of weeks].

So far this week, I think Joel has pretty much figured out public transport in the city and is pretty comfortable exploring things on his own (as you can see if you click the link above). Today we took him to the jade market to show him some things and somehow Cat managed to find something she wanted...

Luckily, we had the professional to teach me more about taking pictures.

Check back soon for more updates.
