Where's the phone booth when you need it?!
There are some days (some weeks) when you just have to be SUPER WOMAN ...
The past week has been my chance to really test out my super mom/woman powers!
WOW ...

I used the powers to - create a pirate prisoner costume at midnight ... Arrrrrrrr you ready for the stage matey? (Crew yells - "Aye Captain!")

The powers are still being used to get organized: We're finally moved into our new (temporary for the time) home! Ahhhhh - will the boxes ever end? :)

Ultra super powers needed - to get everyone where they need to be (on time). :) Oh wait, we might need to clear a pathway to the front door!! Let me use my super strength to clear the way ---***(zip zap)*** ok all clear let's move!
I think its time to assemble the rest of the Justice League:) ----
There's just a bit too much for one super hero to do!

Cheers to Super powers :) - Happy Halloween EVE ---- Get spooky with it!!

{Time in a box ...}
I've spent the last 4 days packing ... Below are a few items I found while boxing up my house:
Wendy and Tory Christensen (about 1994)
Seattle,WA -drawing on the pier... Ever had a Character sketch?! :)
We walked away laughing and thinking: "Do we really look like that?"
Check out the hair - classic.


An art collection of us ... Before we had kids. See that middle photo? The one of two gals in green and yellow? That's me and my best friend April - we were part of the high school cross country team! I can't believe I used to run that far that fast :) ...


Mariner Baseball collectables ... We lived in Bellingham, WA in 1995 and made a few trips to the Kingdom to see them "Stay Alive in '95" - it was so magical!
Hmmm - anyone else out there ever keep a Wheeties box? I'll give this one to Kaleb (my little league slugger!)

Cheers to moments from the past and the stuff we just can't throw out!! :)
PS - We're almost done with the big move - I feel like I need to take a vacation!
A cruise to Alaska sounds nice ...

{A Halloween Party}
Tonight was our annual church Halloween party! Our entire family gets 'dolled' up for this event ... Check out my kids (photo above: Kaleb (Spiderman), Lauren (Wonder Woman), Kade (Sonics basketball player from a few decades ago) ...FUNNY.

I decided to go as Zorro's lady ... See Zorro below (that's my husband - Tory).
Zorro.... Ohh la la la! My husband is such a GREAT sport - he dresses up with me every year.
I love that about him ...!

"Let's get this party started!" :)

I've been on the hunt for a laptop bag and discovered this one via ....
Nice huh?! :)
PS: Thanks to Cookie Magazine, I was alerted to the 'See Jane' website. Thank heavens for magazines in the waiting rooms of Doctor's offices. My son, Kade and I have read quite a few magazines during the past couple of weeks. PS - He's on the mend! Yahooo.
For the record I'm a big magazine fan :) I think it would be very cool to be part of a magazine staff - doing something creative!
If you get a chance, pick up a copy of COOKIE magazine - I loved it!

{Wendy's Hodgepodge}
In other words this is a big blogpile ... of stuff from my life! :)
I'd like to introduce you to my sister in law - Kathy ... (:)) She is married to my brother Robby. They paid us a very fun, surprise visit on Saturday night and it was wonderful to chat and 'catch up' ... We've got plans for some future 'girlie' bonding fun! Can't wait :) ---
This is my brother, Robby and his son - Grant. Robby just started medical school and lives about an hour away from us!! We are thrilled to have them close by ... Love you guys!

We spent an exciting Friday night putting a few of our belongings in our storage unit. I secured this storage place earlier in the week and couldn't believe the paperwork required. It took an hour to lock it all down. WOW - you'd think I was buying the space not renting it. It was funny!

Ahhhhh that's my son Kade and his happy smile. He has been sick for almost 2 weeks and it was so good to see some 'life' back in him.

Presently - I call those yummy treats M&M crunchies. OH they are heavenly! I love salt and chocolate together and this is the perfect combo. You simply place a hershey's kiss (I use chocolate and peanut butter ones) on a waffle pretzle bake at 170 degrees for about 4 minutes then press an m&m into the chocolate and cool in the fridge for about 10 minutes. YUMMY. We've got an open house party tonight for my in-laws who are leaving soon to serve a mission for our church. Tonight is their going away party ...
Cheers to the 'mixture' of life!! :)
Happy Monday ----

{Let 'em go}
Photo by Kaleb - One last look at the lizard ... (those are his Dad's hands)

Back to the wild!
Run free little critter --- run!!

Let it go -
Does anyone else out there love the power of Craigslist? :) ... I have a bunch of stuff to post up.
This adorable green chest of drawers has drawer pulls that glow in the dark - light up your kid's room with this one-of-a-kind piece. Oh there's more ... :)
We're in the process of moving and I can't take it all!
Off to let more stuff GO -- Oh it feels good.
Adios stuff and creatures from the wild ....

The art of juggling –

Have you ever been to the circus? I’ve been a couple of times. The last time we went, my kids and I enjoyed a fabulous night at the Toyota Center with box seats (compliments of Charter Media). We received the royal treatment! (One of the perks of being married to a singing man) Anyhow, my favorite act at the circus is the juggler. I love how those guys can keep so many things in the air at one time. It’s amazing – and they make it really exciting and just when you think they are done, they go and add fire to the bowling pins they are throwing and catching –
I love it!

Sometimes on Monday mornings (and other crazy days), I see myself as one of those Circus Jugglers. It helps me keep the madness in check!

Wow! Did you just see that?!
There’s a lizard downstairs running through my laundry – I bet it got out of its cage. (That would be the fire just added to the already manic day)!
Ahhhhhh where’s Kaleb when I need him?
The Juggler – signing off ….

{Things that make you go WOW!}
Have you ever stopped to notice the things around you that make you say "WOW!"?
Birthday hugs and wishes for my little sister - Erica! WOW!
I love you!
Driving and seeing the gorgeous colors of fall - WOW!

Tomatoes from the garden in October ... WOW!

Going outside to water my roses and finding a huge praying mantis (WOW!)-- My son, Kaleb, loves bugs and anything that creeps and crawls and he loved letting this new found creature crawl all over him - WOW!

Cheers to the WOWs in life ... :)
Happy October.
