Oh, those crazy... brothers?

I was looking at old posts and pictures, and this struck me funny.  I was probably 15 when I drew and posted this.

So its like this- my younger sister and I, (only by two years,) were talking one night, and if you have a sister, especially a younger one, you never know where the conversation is gonna go... no kidding!
We ended up discussing what we would be like if we had been born guys instead of girls, and I was compelled to draw up a picture of what we would look like, using the names mom said she would have named us if we were boys. I'm not telling you who is who here, but you may be able to guess. 


Frankly, with all due respect to those guys in my life and out, I'm rather glad God decided I was to be a girl! Along with my awesome sister!

New Look!

 If you're fairly regular on this blog, you will have noticed that I've changed the look.
Which design did you like better?

"Naked" juice review

I've seen this Naked Juice around in stores a lot, and have wondered just how "naked" they are.  I finally took the liberty to check it out today, and got the only flavor that interested me: Green Machine.  I love green juice!  So when I read the ingredients and saw that they were "natural," and well-balanced, with NO SUGAR ADDED, along with zero chemicals and preservatives. 
 Each serving (8 oz.) contains 2 3/4 apples, 1/2 banana, 1/3 kiwi, 1/3 mango, a bit of pineapple, and, get this: 1,300 mg Spirulina, 400 mg Chlorella, 100 mg Broccoli, 100 mg Spinach, 50 mg Blue Green Algae, 75 mg Barley Grass, 17 mg Wheatgrass, 50 mg Garlic, 50 mg Ginger, 50 mg Parsley.
I am impressed, and it really does taste great!  I understand that it is not organic, which is a minus, but that would also raise the price.
So, for Naked Green Machine Juice, I'd give a 5-out-of-5 for taste, and 4-out-of-5 for quality.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Hiking in lonely, natural places

Helping people
Discovering new things

good friends (and family :)


Making art

Finding cool pictures

Makin and eating rediculously healthy food

Refashioning, reusing, re-
imagining, recycling

Singin loud!

Falling asleep

Organizing things; making them functional
Just thinking

Making children laugh
Getting lost writing

Going to church
Adrenaline rush

Talking about Jesus
