russian spies and things.

i don't have much to say -- that'll happen to you when you're living in your mom's basement. so when matt informed me last week that one of the russian spies arrested was one of his fellow columbia 2010 mba grads, had a class with her even, i devoted the afternoon to grabbing a few screenshots for posterity:







that was fun.

in other news:

  • dear friends rica and dimitris came for a visit while passing through on their vacation across the god-fearing, arms-bearing, wild west. and they christened our kitchen by cooking a mouth-watering, authentic greek meal, complete with tzatziki. be still my heart. we love you, R&D. we anxiously anticipate our sailing-through-the-greek-isles date with you.

Fun time with the fam! I would love to be a part of you and Brenley's heavy D adventure this fall. Maybe I will have to fly in.

Oh my goodness, Indiana is such a little beauty! She is growing up so fast! I'm glad you are enjoying Utah--y'all look great. And your pictures are amazing, btw.

I'm very supportive of your blossoming relationship with your camera. Love your photos. Miss Fox.

See you soon! Like, less than 24 hours which makes me happy & kept me from the brink of total breakdown in May.

holy smokes ... that russian spy stuff is crazy. and your hubby was among them. how well do you know matt? something to think about.
your kids=heartbreaking. the last pic of indie particularly made my heart melt. i mean, seriously ...
you're funny.
i miss you even though you're here. i fear this living close business is only gonna make me selfish for more erin-time.
glad suburbia is treating you well. you should think about staying. just sayin'

jill said...

is the little miss sitting up like a big girl now?! impressive. miss you.

Kathryn said...

I hear you on the effects of living in the basement and realizing you've arrived... somewhere. When are we going to get together this summer?

noelle said...

there's too much for me to comment on. just know i loved it. every bullet point and picture update. your updates are like an oasis of refreshing in a barren desert of boring. i think i've said as much before. keep it coming, will you?

Lauren said...

Your kids are getting so big! I can't believe Matt knew one of the russian spies. Crazy. Are you guys going back to Texas now?

brenley said...

bschool really does connect you with some interesting people ... a russian spy has to be top on the list! that's c.r.a.z.y.

my favorite picture is when fox is pinching together indie's cheeks. it'll be fun to meet those two cuties.

glad you're enjoying suburbia, friends, and family!

old me.
