we went to Pinkberry (Royal and Preston)

it was delicious! i think i still like orange cup better and just found out there is one now in West Village! the one cool thing that pinkberry does is just charge a little over a dollar more and you can add which ever toppings "comfortly fit" in your cup! our girl eager to please i think, so i just kept asking for more and she loaded it on! yes! it was good. we got original and pomagranate with strawberries, blackberries, gronala, choc chips and choc shavings!

GO T C U . . .

i am lovin' it. GO TCU! matt and i are so OUT OF THE LOOP with the successful year that TCU, our alma mater, has had! we are just not big sports fans. but has been all the rage; on the news, in the crowds, everyone has been talking about the #4 ranked school, TCU, and how they are looking good to go completely undefeated this season. i can't believe it. again, Go TCU! i feel so bad i havn't been supporting you. at least, i can find comfort knowing that my, ever-faithful, brother Mason, and ALL his friends are THERE, in mega high spirits cheering the Frogs on... they are so excited that ESPN is on campus. it must just be a really exciting day over in fort worth. i kinda wish i'd gotten it together and gone over there or something, but matt had to work today and the game is sold out, for like the 2nd time in history, and i am sure it is just crazy and would be difficult. the worst part is though, that we don't even have cable, so i can't even watch the game. but apparently, NIKE has made special uniforms for the frogs with blood streaks and reptile patterns all over it!

Christmas gift ideas...

i recently came across these photos again, and decided to re-post this entry; as Christmas is approaching, whether we care to admit it or not. we are all faced with decisions of what to give and, sure, there are those special, meaningful gifts, we like to and should feel fine with giving, but i am considering all those 'filler' gifts that are really, basically, unnecessary! THOSE are the ones we should be replacing with true and deserving gifts, to those who really do need to be thought of. spread the word of World Vision's gift giving program, or any other organization you participate with, to others, and encourage them to not give this Christmas, something that will just pile up as contribute to existing clutter!


i was so encouraged with the spirit of Christmas last year! it was all about others and, so, worth-while.
ours was a monetary contribution, which i had fun making artistic cards describing;
and others also participated and gave gifts in our names, to charities of their choice!
i highly recommend it! true satisfaction. infact, if done through World Vision you receive back a nice photo of what all was supplied with your donation! the funds go to meet their greatest needs. families are met with, asked and advised, so no money goes to waist!
it's a win-win!
the first 2 photos below are my sponsor child Adam Inusah, of 8 years and the third is my mom's sponsor child, Azizu Sulemana of about 1 1/2 years!

oh N O . . .

These photographs of albatross chicks were made just a few weeks ago on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way. These images depict the actual stomach contents of baby birds in one of the world's most remote marine sanctuaries, more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent.
