Friday Jams.


Jason let Matt borrow his new ball cap last night but told him he HAD to give it back at the end of the night. So after the art show Jason sent us to Gannon's for eats and ran home and came back with MATT'S hat on as collateral. They then swapped hats and the order of the universe was restored.

Then I tried on both hats and they hardly even fit over my very head top. I hope our kids get Jason's normal sized head and not my outlandishly large one. Otherwise it will be Freak County, population yipes.

this is my friend's dog, Guinness. I love him so very much.

I wish I had more to say today but my brain and heart are completley consumed with thoughts of the long weekend and BBQs.

Hopefully I will have pics and stories after the weekend. Good ones. Not lame posts like this.

A Very Dororthy Gale Weekend

Being home was so so great. I had such great talks with my sisters and brother in law and a really funny time with my parents. I didn't get to play as much Rock Band with my nephew as I'd wanted to but still just an all around great visit.

I had a cold the whole time but honestly there's no better place to be than with family when you are coughing up lungs and what not. My oldest sister took such good care of me.

I came home to an empty house. Jason left me.

JUST kidding. He went to see his parents in Wisco for a few days. I must say I already miss him in an unhealthy way. I thought I would really enjoy the quiet time alone but by 9:00pm I was totally bored and ready for him to come home. Alas, alack, I have to wait until Wednesday. WEDNESDAY! I have plans the next two nights though, so that should help.

Wow. Whose totally bored off their ass with this post? Me too. Let's just look at a couple pictures.

The Original Allen 5. I love how hard my mom (in red) is laughing in this pic. I think I was pinching her butt maybe.

Here's Kendra trying to open an umbrella that two seconds earlier had dropped a dead spider on me when I tried to open it. That's why my mom is laughing so hard in THIS pic.

Annnnnd here is my dad's new truck. Those of you that know my dad will understand why this is the most hilarious and out of character purchase yet totally right on at the same time. Those of you that don't know him, trust me. It's hilarious. And yes....somewhere in that truck I'm sure my mom is still laughing hysterically.

Jason made baked chicken for the first time last night. It was a big event and very chicktastic.

Unlike my stupid lunch today. I just had one of those "I have no idea what I want so I'll accidentally buy and eat totally sick food."

I walked outside and was cold and decided to get a sandwich from 7-11. I know. Brainiac. So I got a chicken salad on whole wheat, a string cheese and a pack of cup of soup (actually we have this for free at work). I got to the check out and looked up and there are five....FIVE pigeons INSIDE the 7-11. Well that got my bile a risin'. As I walked I started trying to imagine myself eating this sandwich I just bought at the pidge pidge house and realized it was going to be tough. BUT I had no more cash and didn't want to take more out so I just tried to tough it out.

With my last dollar I figured I would get some Baked Lays out of the machine to go with my powder soup and bird flu but what happens? Well I put in my quarters and hit vend and the bag gets stuck. I did a backwards 5 count to avoid a kick fit and put in two more quarters and hit vend thinking I'd end up with two bags of chips. Second bag gets stuck too. So I gave up. Not just on the chips, on everything. Just kidding. But I thought about it.

Soooo I ended up just eating the crust around the chicken salmonella sandwich and my soup. It was all just as sick as you imagine.

That a part of my personality I just will never understand. It vexes me daily. Why do I do stuff like that? Like what goes through my brain that makes me think that will be a decent lunch? And old sandwich and hot water and salt powder? I could've done so much more with that $5. But there's some weird spazzy part of my melon that leads me to make such weird decisions for myself. This is why I don't really like too much alone time. I simply can't be trusted.

Wow it's been a whole week since I blogged! Matt must be huddled up in a corner shaking and whispering "no no no no no no no" over and over.

I just don't have a whole lot to say. I have a cold. The kind that makes my ears itch and my throat burn. Sexy.

I am going to see my family this weekend for Mother's Day, my mom's birthday and just some needed sister time on Friday night. I've been really homesick so I think it will be the shot in the A I need to perk up a little bit.

So until I have something interesting to say or ponder here are some random cell phone pics.

Blurry church.

Clouds and sun.
