Road trip recap


I drove to Kansas City this weekend – and you know what that means:

On the road again from Annie Parsons on Vimeo.

I’m sorry that the video was only 52 seconds long, but… no, you know what, no I’m not.  That’s about all you need to be subjected to.

Besides this (glorious) video, the only other eventful things that happened on the drive were watching a bird get completely OBLITERATED by a Camry (we’re talking: cloud of feathers, body ricocheted into the median), and calling Becca in a panic to ask who the fifth member of the Backstreet Boys was (why did I forget about Howie? Oh. Probably because he’s Howie).

When I showed up for Sarah‘s college graduation, my mom told me I looked like a flower.  I kind of felt like a flower.


Micah and Tyler have their summer buzz cuts, and it’s clear that they adore their aunties.


Sarah is now officially a college graduate and a real live nurse.  We have her with us back in Colorado for a few weeks, but she has a one-way ticket to Haiti next month.  Little sister, prepare to be smothered by us.

    HA! Hilarious… Your driving videos are classic. And, that first picture of you is classic.

(not kidding) they are sorta the love of my life, you know, if i could love an occurrence as opposed to a thing or even a person. please don’t make me rant on and on by personifying your videos. that would just be … a tragedy. really.

    Oh my goodness friend. Your video absolutely cracked me up! I love it, and your music. I have two places I listen to my guilty pleasure music…on a run and on a road trip with the music blaring and windows down. haha. Love the pictures and yes, you do look like a flower. How pretty! Hope you’re doing well. And how do we keep missing each other at EN. AGH! PS. I’m about to be a displaced EN like you.

    You look like Jackie O in that first picture! Gorgeous! Can’t wait to see you this week

    Big fan of you today. This made me giggle!

    I found your blog through Holly & Meagan from Auburn, from my friend Emily from North Carolina. However, I know your sister from Jewell.


    I stumbled upon your blog earlier in the year, how cool. Your family is adorable!

    You do look like a flower! I love that outfit. And what a fun video.

    Ugh. You’re so damn cool… geez. [returns back to uncool, dark, drippy cave]

    You look as though you’ve stepped out of an Anthropologie catalog in that first picture.

    I once saw a goose get obliterated by a Mack Truck. Feather explosion. No body left to ricochet anywhere. Shudder.

    I…I love Celine Dion too. Don’t tell anyone.

    You look like a very classic, Southern beauty. My Grandmother would be proud. You couldn’t understand even a portion of what a huge compliment that is.

    Didn’t I call you once when “I’m Your Lady” was playing on the radio, and confess to you that I LOVED IT…??

    Sometimes best friends are the best at being friends.

    I was totally about to make fun of you when I heard Celine in the background. But then you made fun of yourself. And that is why I like you. Who doesn’t love singing that song in the car anyway? No one raise your hand.. we don’t want to know.
