that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

ruckus raisin’; tree choppin’


I have my first, real live, gorgeous smelling, beautiful Christmas tree!! My friend from school, Karla, and I …along with the conscription of our counterparts, Darcy Pederson and Luke Hughson (last names so if we get caught, they get in trouble)…went out last night and this is what we came home with!! It was such a good way to chill, take a risk, and be cheap. The guys sawed them down and then held them to the roof of the getaway car while we attempted to take the backroads back to my place and the guys’. It was unreal.

…decorations to follow haha.

Karla’s mom was convinced we’d axe our legs off so we took the saw.
Darcy and Luke’s tree.
Kate’s tree. Notice I didn’t saw it.
SO proud!
For real…we drove down the main roads. Like this. One tree on either side, the boys’ hands froze off and at one point I was actually going th speed limit and the tree Luke was holding onto slowly started sliding down my window. It was a sight, let me tell you. Excuse the rust spots.

Luke had more fun than any of us…check out his thumb!

  1. Yay!!! Congratulations!!! Did you get them from a tree lot? i miss going out into the wilderness and coming back with the most ugly tree ever. sigh. I suppose that the family will have to do it without me again this year!!

  2. Meg are you serious? NO, we went to [insert place I will not disclose for fear of my innocence] and sawed the two trees right down. It was pitch black out so I was thoroughly impressed when the sun came up and trees were actually beautiful…

  3. halarious! looks like fun!

  4. I can’t believe you did that! For real! haha…

  5. bah ahahaha. Very funny Kate. The guys holding the trees on the roof hilarious!
