the worst researcher ever...

check out these photos, aren't they cool!

i have to say...i find hardly any of this stuff...matt's always the one who does, he shows me stuff and we usually have similar styles and so i'm just stealing his finds and putting them on my blog. also is true of the 2 video clips below...
it's just that i'm the worst researcher ever, with no patience and HE just so happens to be the very best researcher ever, with loads of patience and interest to find new things. i'd be fine with the same old stuff all around...
anyways, i had to point that out and give credit where credit is due! i usually mention it in my posts, but thus time i felt the need for ultimate mentioning! thanks matty!

All Ye Faithful

A Social Network Christmas

this is a cool video that someone at our church made as if Jesus was here today...

our new friend eddie the horse!

matt and i were out on a walk and there are some stables really close to our house! here is where we met eddie. he had one blue eye and one brown eye and we just started making horse noises (a trick we picked up from my parents, as they have made horse friends in galisteo) and eddie came running over to us! it was great!

13 weeks and counting...

the baby's the size of a peach!

our home at night!

notice the christmas tree in the bay window!

new house holiday get together!

it was fun, but i didn't get many shots :( here are a few! we had so many friends come by, this was toward the end i think, when i was able to grab the camera!

we're expecting a little one...

it seems like a while now, that we've been unable to share the excitement that the first room on the right is going to be our BABY's ROOM!
yay! here is a little bit of what i've set out. it remains pretty empty, with no furniture yet...but i'm sure soon, it'll come to life very nicely! so excited! boy OR girl, we feel very blessed to be able to be parents!

L o n d o n . . .

what a great time we had...
matt had a shoot over in London and i was fortunate enough to be his stylist/assistant!
we made the most of every spare moment and stayed an extra couple days to see all we'd missed the last time we were there.
got back yesterday afternoon, just in time for THANKSGIVING DAY today, with my parents who are driving up to spend it here with us in our new home!
Portobello Market in Notting Hill. i found some great coin pendents!
all the fresh baked goods and fruits and veggies!

what was the 'blue door' of William Thacker's flat in the movie, Notting Hill.
artist matt's liked for the past 13 years or so...on a skate shop wall
4-D baby...we rode the London Eye and this was the pre-show

Big Ben and Parliament!
the CHANGING OF THE GUARDS! i missed this sadly last year, and was SO glad to see them in those fur bear skin hats! I LOVE THOSE THINGS!!!!!
check out the masses! i had to get propped up by matty to get that first shot and then shove my way in to get a few closer ones...
this is matt patiently waiting behind so i could take it all in...
we went to the Lion King as a Birthday gift to me! loved it! (i made matt be in some of the photos!)
weren't supposed to snap shots, but i got this one. i cried at the beginning when all the animals came out...there was a huge elephant that must have taken like 10 people to control...and the giraffes were my favorite of all...
yummy burger joint next to the Lion King's theater we ate at
go World Vision and Volvic water...this was a 1.5 L bottle of water, but for every 1 L purchased, they are providing 10L of water for African countries: Ghana, Malawi, Mali and Zambia! i just discovered this after purchasing it. but was so excited since it is such a passion of mine and to see that it is with WV, who i am affiliated with AND that Ghana, of ALL countries was one listed that they are supporting!
check out a write up here...
matty found us this yummy breakfast spot on our last morning...The Breakfast Club.
Lloyd's Building. All the piping is external...

matty imitating me in front of St. Paul's
as we walked over the Millennium Bridge, the clouds began to part. it was pretty windy and cold the whole time, but we were lucky it didn't rain!
Cy Twombly!
Agnes Martin room
this was at the Saatchi gallery, pretty cool and free.

on a double decker, our last night!

the photo shoot went great, by the way.
no pics of it obviously, we were working...and sadly one other thing we didn't get a picture of was this awesome dessert THE GODFATHER and a cappuccino
that we had after a meal on monday:/
