Anne Hathaway in Cape May

People says Anne warbled Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" during a karaoke outing with friends and family at a Cape May, N.J., restaurant on Monday night. (If it's any consolation, the song is now stuck in our head, too.)

Our electric bill was 0 Because we are on budget pay and we used less electricity then last year.


i am sitting in my living room working on my computer and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day. i am working until 1 today and then going swimming with my mom and melissa joy. last night we had a chance to spend some time with davids cousin colleen and her daughter claudia. claudia is 22 months and so beautiful. it took her a little to warm up to everyone, but she already knew melissa joy from when melissa joy went to italy. claudia kept calling her doy because when she met her she was 17 months and that is about all she could say. well by the end of the night i was mel-it-ta-la and she has the cutest little voice. we had a pretty awesome dance party in melissa joy's room because she has big mirrors!!

irresistible revolution by shane claiborne

the church is the place where we can stand up and say we are wretched and everyone will nod and agree and remind us that we are also beautiful.

i am reading this book thanks to my husband who said i should and pastor brett who lent us the book. it is a really good book.

went to the beach today and the water was soo cold. i was not going to go under but i got pretty hot on the beach so i was brave and went on in. checked on some water temp web site and it was 66 degrees today in the ole atlantic ocean. crazy! i got a little bit of a tan!! but not too much since i had on some sunscreen so i wouldnt get burned. it is so nice to have visitors cause it makes you do the cool stuff your own town has to offer. we went to wildwood last night and then today to cape may and had hot dog tommy's. i had a hot dog with bacon, bbq sauce and cheddar cheese and one with mashed taters, sour cream and cheddar cheese. yum! oh and a frozen coke. then tonight we went back to cape may and walked around the stores then headed to the light house and sunset beach and the sunken ship! pretty fun day! thanks to laura and emily coming to visit! they are driving cross country (there and back) they started in CA and have made it to Jersey!
