Are you feelin it? Dreams come true, yes they do, in SANTA FE! I had this song in my head all the way to Santa Fe last saturday. We braved the 1 hour 45 minute train ride on the Railrunner and it was pretty fun! If we didn't have kids it would have obviously been much more peaceful, we kept saying how nice it would be to commute to work that way, reading, surfing the internet, no driving... Anyway, highlights from the trip included to DIE for goat cheese and artisan garlic bread at the farmer's market, lots of dandelion bouquets, the BEST sopapillas, trying on a beautiful $65,000 diamond ring, giggling as the train doors went "meepmeep" just like the roadrunner, and offending the living daylights out of a gallery owner when I said to Ben, "I could paint that," about a $3000 painting. I swear the painting really wasn't that great, so unlike Santa Fe, which is very great, I think.

good post. you look really cute with your braids, and i just have to tell you i did my hair in heidi-like braids a couple of days ago and didn't look nearly as lovely. great photos, too. and i believe you could paint it, whatever it was, because i've seen your oils (remember that time i went to your house) and you were so humble and i thought they were so awesome.

Did you bust a move too? I frequently break out in song and dance doing meaningless tasks throughout the day!

I LOVE Newsies! (and Santa Fe is pretty cool too. )

mrs. peterson said...

yes, i meant to add that newsies is one of my favorite movies. i can't help it. the street urchins, the handsome jack kelley, dancing in the streets.

Rachel said...

Carrie, you are just more adorable every time I see you. I love your hair, your clothes, your kids, your pictures. I like you too Ben! ;) It was really fun to see pictures of you on here too. And what a fun trip!

Emmy said...

Looks like fun! Very cute blog! Rachel (my sister-in-law) pointed me this way for the recipe from your Earth Day recipe as I just bought some orzo simple because the box was so little and cute :)

I will definitely be stopping by your blog again!

I smiled too at this post, Carrie i'm so glad I get to see a glimpse of your life and cute family. did you take a picture of the painting? i want to see what you come up with. I too, love you hair, what a fun day you had.

Your photos look so crisp, Carrie! Whatever issues you were having must have been fixed because these shots are amazing! Way to go, you! I miss you guys.

Carrie said...

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

Megan, Yes! I couldn't host my images with blogger-- simply hosting them on flickr and transferring them from there made all the difference!

Briana said...

I loooove Newsies! I always like Spot, the boy from Brooklyn...
"Never fear... Brooklyn is here!"
Booyah!

Hey Carrie!! What an adorable family you have! You guys look like you have a lot of fun. I can't hear the word "sante fe" without thinking about Newsies. Isn't that funny! and then there's my husband who has never even seen that movie! I keep telling him that he's missing out:) I am excited to hear that Ben is going to med school! Is there a specific school where he wants to go? Does he want to go to an M.D. school or a D.O. school? I am excited for you guys! I'll have to let you know how it goes once we actually get there and school starts. I'm glad you found my blog and commented so I could find yours! I hope all is well with you and your family! They really are so adorable! Good luck with med school, keep me updated!
