Last weekend we headed to Superior for a photoshoot. While my subject was doing an outfit change I handed my camera to the subject's brother and asked him to snap a shot of me and Johnna. This is the ONLY time anyone other than Johnna or I have even held my camera. After seeing the resulting image I know more fully now that the photographer makes the photograph not the camera.
Poor Johnna got like a hundred mosquito bites on her legs.

Dude...she is kinda hot.
She got her undergrad from University of Idaho where Johnna's dad is the Director of Information Tech. She was also runner-up for Miss Alaska in 1984.
I just watched the official VP announcement on McCain's ticket on CNN.

Date night and stuff....

Dashcam (haven't been guilty of this in a while)
Last night we went to a new restaurant called Cafe Laguna that features fry bread as their staple to most of their dishes. Here is Johnna eatin it up:

Then we went to see that movie "What Happens in Vegas". It was cool but it might as well have been a remake of "How to lose a guy in 10 days"

Lately Johnna has been suggesting that she would like to get another dog. I have been catching her on the internet searching craigslist and other listings for puppies... so I took action, and now I have her convinced that I have a "puppy-block" on the internet because whenever she starts to look for puppies the internet mysteriously stops working. In reality I am just unplugging the modem with my foot whenever I catch her. I realize that this little trick is useless now that I have blogged about it but I thought it was too funny not to share.

Jungle Fever

Chris promised me last night I was going to get up the same time as him today and WORK. So this morning I was rudely awakened with the covers being ripped off me and a squirt gun to the face, which he totally used! (at 5 am). . . which didn't end until I was out of bed, and out of our bedroom.

This is the project he gave me to do today:

(This is just a portion of our backyard. . . It all looks like this. . .)

Fun huh?! One of the reasons I married Chris is that he is the ONLY guy who will put me in my place and won't let me be (to much of) a princess. Occasionally I have to remind myself that this is what I believed to be an "endearing" quality of his. So, assuming I don't die of severe heat exhaustion and painful prickles in my hands, I will post an after picture.
I am still not done. . . but here is an update.
