Two posts in less than a month......SERIOUSLY!! Bring on the Bloggy-awards!!

You know what I love about blogs? The PICTURES. Who doesn't love pictures? Unfortunately, this particular blog post won't have any. I got the camera out to post some ULTRA SUPER AMAZING photos that would just blow your mind (I guess you'll just have to trust me on that..wink, wink) and discovered it doesn't work. I recharged the battery and still no luck. What can I say? I hate electronics and they hate me. My darling sister Becca says that I remind her of a 90-year-old woman when it comes to all things electronic. She has to give me a weekly tutorial on managing my music on itunes. So sad yet so true. Sooooo, work with me here.....

Picture this:

The most beautiful shade of grey-blue painted on my kitchen walls.

Several of my friends came over to help me paint my kitchen from green to blue. (Look at how computer-savvy I am figuring out how to add some color to these words. Becca, you better take back all those nasty things you've said!!) Thank you very much ladies! Shell-Belle, JoJo, Jess, Liss, and Carls--you gals OWNED those paint brushes. It is utterly astounding how much six women can accomplish in three hours. Special thanks to BrookieO (yes, the same Brooke who started this blog) and Aubs who both convinced me to do it and helped pick the color.

Now, picture this:

Catherine Call lounging on a beach in Cancun as the sun sets on the horizon. One servant stands on her left fanning her gently while another applies the last coat of polish to her pedicure. She is smiling serenely without a care in the world.

Yeah, well......a girl can dream, can't she?!

I'm sure it is beautiful--you are GREAT with home decorating--I can't wait to see pictures :) How lucky to have such fun friends that helped you. Way to go!!!

...And this is why "I" started a blog for you. I honestly cannot get enough of you girl!

Cancun? Are you trying to get swine flu?
You know, your brother and I live somewhere just as tropical, our house comes with a personal chef (he he) and you don't need a passport!!

You could always mail me your camera. And Seven Peaks or our Trampoline is also quite relaxing. I do have a son who loves to give massages and a daughter who loves to paint nails. Just sayin.

I wish I could see your new paint color! Bummer about your camera-I hope you can either get it fixed or get a new one cause we'd love to see pictures on your blog!

Guess you better save up and get one of those fancy-schmancy cameras that everyone has but me and you! Wait buy me one first.

Scott and Angie June 12, 2009 at 11:07 PM

Two blogs--¡impresionante!. Someday I'll see your house and admire the colors. You must be adopted after all--I could never decorate (never really cared). Come back to Ecuador and help me put some pizzaz into the mission home; oh, and bring your friends.

Mom and Dad June 13, 2009 at 12:04 PM  

By the way, anyone who knows anything knows that the award for good blogging is a bloggard.

Cat I am such a fan of your blog.
I am crackin up over you simple comments. Now I need to take a trip over to see your paint job, and see your fantastic landscaped backyard.

You are your projects, I tell ya! I can't wait to see the new color... soon my friend, I will see it soon!

one word - HILARIOUS! One day you will get sick of me telling you how funny you are...mark my words. AND you must have gotten it from the parentals because your moms comment was hilarious as well.
