So we went on a little trip this weekend.

Newfoundland is an interesting place...

Full of places with names...

Oh, Newfoundland. I love you so. Even though I've never been there. It is rapidly climbing the charts as a place to go.
There's another home somewhere,
There's another glimpse of sky...
There's another way to lean
into the wind, unafraid.
There's another life out there...

I recently found out that my mom went to Newfoundland (and even St. John's) when she was a teenager to visit her older sister, who was married to a guy stationed at some base up there. My mom said it was incredibly boring. It was the middle of winter and there was no TV. :)

Doc, you're a girl?

Or are you a dog?
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

*laugh* You know, Jan, had you kept the whale and the fat thing to the left (seal? I fail Basic Animals 101) out, I wouldn't have looked close enough to be able to tell the iceberg was fake.

I actually thought the seal was real at first. But I thought the whale was a bird; I think I fail Animals 101.

Heehee. Yes, it is a whale's tail, an iceberg and a seal (kind of a fat seal). None of which were there, but all of which are around Newfoundland. :)

I thought the iceberg was the sinking Titanic. The thing on the left looks like a smokestack.

I have pictures! Went to a fancy holiday party this weekend and thought I would post a picture... then I got picture happy. So here's me! I've fluctuated a bit in the weight department lately, so some of these look different than others.

Me and Boyfriend at this weekend's fancy party:

Staking my claim as Queen of the Jungle Gym at the Run for Your Lives Zombie 5k:

Image


Obligatory "I live in DC" photo (when I was a little heavier)

Image


And, finally, me looking all artsy and pensive and whatnot.

Yeah. I meant to say as much before now, too. My favorite was the jungle gym one but I don't think that would protect you from the zombies.

A Christmas photo! I hate American chocolate (so waxy), so one of my UK friends mailed me some from there. And a mug!

Taken by a nice lady in our apartment office about a week before Christmas. To give you all some idea of how big we're getting. :)

I didn't take it that way at all, no worries. I like the idea of him being proud of me/us very, very much.
