Excitingly Mundane

Okay, I've finally decided to make our first "real" blog post about the happenings of the weekend. After this, we'll work toward more exciting posts...

Our weekend may sound lame, but it was actually really fun! On Friday Mark called me, as usual, when he was getting ready to leave the refinery. He was so sweet. He told me to put my shoes on and grab the camera so that we could go on a "sunset pictures" adventure. =) We didn't really find any big wow photo opps, but here are a few of the pics we were able to snag...

A herd of antelope crossing the road... Mark sees this same bunch every day on his way home!

Just some pretty scenery on a little highway...

You can't really see us, but the sunset was pretty...

After the sun fell out of sight we went to the redbox and rented Up in the Air, picked up a pizza and our favorite ice cream and had a wonderful, relaxing evening.

On Saturday, Mark had to work for a few hours so I took the opportunity to do some spring cleaning. =) Later that evening we went to a Wii party with our Pursuit Sunday School class... so much fun! I didn't take many pictures, but Jessica took some video of Mark and I dukin' in out in Wii boxing. I made a sweet movie out of it but it's been "processing" for like, seven hours now. Any avid bloggers out there have suggestions for me? =)

After church on Sunday, Mark and I started talking backpacking. We're getting really excited about all of the traveling options we're going to have once the warm weather is here! =) So we decided to start working on the light weight pack Mark bought for me a long time ago...

Mark cut out the pieces...
I singed the edges...

I can't wait to see it all put together... it's going to be purple! =) After evening service that night we researched where all we can afford to go and what parks/backpacking options are located around those places... We're so excited!

Well folks, that about wraps it up! I hope you enjoyed reading about our excitingly mundane life!


  1. Hey lady, cute pictures it is crazy to see the flat landscape of Kansas reflected down there. As for your video, blogger can't host anything above 100 so I would suggest putting in on a different site, like megavideo or youtube and creating an embedded link instead. Unless you know how to compress, I don't really. Happy blogging!
