random nonsense

warning: random post ahead of you.

tulips remind me of merian park 
then i get really nervous, like i’m missing something.
will they still be in bloom when i arrive?
 i hope so!  hold ooooon tulips, i’m coming.
this little u-pick is right down the corner from my street.
i live in the country
or so it seems.
i always made fun of this side of the river, and now the joke is on me, i call it home.
i am all for cheese.
this gift for my fave bride to be might be a little cheesey but i think it is always fun to say your future name.
in grad school i probably doodled it 1000 times… future mrs. tucker.
grad school!  i am ashamed.
shirt via weddingchicks
this really happened.
the billboards by my house are as follows:
“want your bad boy home?  1800bailout.”
“strong relationships survive” – with a picture of a lion and a couple on a couch?
“cremioso y delicioso”
“bigger is better”

i didn’t take this, but my father in law did. 
i want to frame it in my house.

i’ve been lusting over getting these for Heath  for two years now.
so pleased with them.
they exceeded my expectations.
find them here

i was able to assist/carry a shootsac for  my fave photographer /house guest, jessica lorren.
look at those roots.
am i the only person who gets attached to their roots?
it’s pretty weird how i actually start to like them a little. 
this week we’ve been cooking up okra.
its so fresh, doesn’t need much.
just olive oil, salt and pepper. sauteed.  
annnnnnd i think this is my biggest crowd pleaser yet.
who knew kids liked okra?
i also made kale for another class – they kept asking for “fourths”.
music to my ears.

this was taken in Live Oak, FL.  at a Walmart.

last easter i was in Lugano for Easter.  With JB.
i’m missing JB so much lately.
even more than before, though i didn’t think it was possible.
he’s skiing this weekend in the swiss alps.
i don’t like skiing but i do like drinking hot cocoa while taking in the view.

anyway, this weekend is as good of a time as any to say:
Jesus Loves You.
… this i know.

    Ugh! Don't you hate it when your roots creep up on you? It's like you wake up in the morning and are puzzled because "Those roots weren't there yesterday. How'd that happen overnight?!" LOL!!

    Everything you write about is beautiful, and your photos! Breathtaking.

    I also live in the country, which I love. and I love that you grow some of your own food. We live on 2 acres and I totally plan on starting myself a little garden.
    Stay gorgeous!

    Love the randomess. And I had okra for the first time a couple months ago (it's not common in the NW) and it was delish! Love that you are teaching kids about all these yummy healthy foods.

    aw. what a sweet random blessing of a post this is.

    Jesus loves you always pops up in front of my eyes in the most random situations. But it is always when i really need to be reminded He is right there in whatever it is I am venturing to do. so awesome.

    i think your gorgeous.
    I want to eat with you all day everyday and be healthy and beautiful because the two go hand in hand.
    your dog is adorable.

    I don't understand creeping roots. but girl, I had a perm and when THOSE roots started coming in all crazy and curly under the straight I went crazy and just cut out the perm.

    k I am done. goodness.


    be blessed this easter πŸ™‚

    Wow, your okra is much more impressive than the supermarket okra!
