 Hello Friday! Nice to see you again finally! ha. Anywayyyy Wednesday afternoon we went over to one of my husband's classmates house. They live right on Carolina Lake! We took the boat out and went wake boarding, tubing, and drank a cooler of beer. It was so much fun! Im still so sore tho haha. 
We look dorky in this one but thats just us! ha
This was his second time wakeboarding ever! I swear hes good at everything.

 So much fun!

 :) This party was put together in celebration of them passing the Language School! They all learned to speak Indonesian fluently in 4 months. Insane! I dont know how they did it! Especially my husband since he already had to go through french language school and he took spanish in highschool. Way too confusing but the good thing is, when we travel to Europe he can speak french and when we travel to Bali he can speak indonesian! Our next stop is Australia next summer tho. Lots of things to do before kids! So anyway I took their class pictures.

Their Indonesian teacher is hilarious and so much fun! We took a serious class picture but I think this one is the best haha. She said she was going to hang this on her wall in her office. 

After it got too dark to be out on the lake we went back to the lake house and ate more BBQ, jammed, and drank yummy drinks. 

Day Forty Three. Wednesday June 23rd.


Day Forty Four. Thursday June 24th.

Today we are tired and sore from tubing and wake boarding. So we vegged out and watched movies. This guy hangs out on our porch and eats bugs for us. He is HUGE! But he reminds me of spiderman and he kills bugs so he can stay as long as he is outside!

Right now I am enjoying the VH1 Micheal Jackson Music Video Marathon! RIP MJ! You truely were the king of pop. Say what you will about him as a man. But his music has changed the world of pop forever. Not only that but his dancing, his music videos (thriller was the very first music video ever) He pretty much invented the idea of music videos. But other than that, he seriously has inspired so many artists and in the world of music (where I live) that is a huge deal. I just want to share this video because I really feel that it speaks for itself. 

When the Haiti Earthquake devistated the world. All of these artists came together with the inspiration from MJ and his song to create an organization that raised Millions of dollars to help the people of Haiti. I just think this is beautiful. I really believe that no matter what happens, and how many differences we face from race to race and country to culture, that music can bring people together. Everyone from Celine Dion to Lil Wayne to Smokey Robinson is in this music video and its just amazing! If you watch it til the end that is my favorite part. Rest In Peace MJ. You are even inspirational after you are gone <3

Some say he was a "freak" for turning white. But what alot of people dont know, or choose not to know, is that he had a skin disease that caused him to become white. Literally.  Vitiligo, a disorder in which pigment-making cells are destroyed. White patches appear on different parts of the body, tissues in the mouth and nose, and the retina.There is no cause. There is no cure, and it's very random,Thomas says. As many as 65 million people worldwide have the disorder, including up to 2 million in the United States. This is what he would have looked like if he didnt get tissues therapy.

Sad right? Who would want to look like that. I think Id rather turn white also. Just goes to show how cruel people can be. If anything, He taught the world a lesson, follow your dreams, no matter what people think or how many people want to bring you down. Thats exactly what I will do :)

And Finally, I would like to share this AMAZING painting done by Ashly Wissler, an amazing artist that I went to highschool with. You can check out more of her artwork HERE
Notice the tape on his fingers, covering the patchyness. Thats where the glove came from.

Lastly, I would like to welcome my new readers! I cant believe there are 29 of you :) you make me wanna dance! And blog more!Happy Friday everyone!!

Time to get up and crank up some MJ, Clean the house, water and weed the garden, take koa for a run, & stop by the grocery store and post office. Then it will officially be my weekend. TTFN!
