Fun Stuff

Here's a picture of one of my favorite Korean treats. It's got chocolate inside!

For many of you, the weather is getting cooler right now. Not here in Florida. But then I love the heat so bring it on!

When not teaching, I've been fast drafting my latest WIP which I'm so excited about. That and fighting FIRE ANTS. Yes, they have invaded our house! I have war wounds to prove it.

It was Chusok holiday for Koreans from Sept. 11-13 (for you Canadians and Americans, think the Korean version of Thanksgiving). So happy Chusok everyone! Here's a great article about Chusok (or Chuseok, depending on how you want to translate it) from Korea Or check out this past post on my own Chusok experience.

My sister's wedding pictures were posted on her photographer's blog and I HAD to share the blog link with you because they are just perfection. Her photographer, Abby Liga, is amazing. And Julianne, my sister, looks gorgeous. You have to look at these pictures!

Kelly Polark has recently started up this great blog called Book Recs of the Rock and Famous to promote literacy. Go check it out too!

Your sister's wedding pics are gorgeous. Loved how all the bridesmaids wore the different fabulous shoes. :)

Stunning photos! You sister is beautiful. And I have to agree with Karen, loved the different shoes, added a touch of individuality.

Kelly Polark said...

Wow. Those are seriously some of the most beautiful wedding photographs I have ever seen! I love the burst of yellow and the bridesmaids shoes too! Was that you with your hair up as a bridesmaid? You and your sister looked GORGEOUS!

Also, thanks for the shout out! It's been fun compiling the book recommendations!

Andrea Mack said...

Wow - what a lot of interesting tidbits in your post. I love the wedding photos, both you and your sister looked amazing!

Christina Farley said...

Thanks guys! I'll have to tell her you said you liked them. Yes, Kelly, that was me with the curled hair up. Great memories!

Happy Chusok! :)

Your sister's wedding pictures were lovely. You all looked so beautiful--and I especially liked the "I do" on the undersides of her shoes. :)

Kate Fall said...

I'm sorry about the fire ants, though. I hope they get out your house fast!

Golden Eagle said...

Happy Chusok! :)

Your sister is so beautiful! And I love how all the shoes are different.

Janet Johnson said...

Happy Chusok to you, too!

And ugh about the fire ants. NOT fun.

That Korean treat looks interesting! Love the packaging and that arrow pointing to the filling to explain it, ha!

Krispy said...

Your sister's wedding photos are lovely! I adore the yellow accents. They pop in such a cute way with everything else!

Going to check out the rest of your links. Good luck with the fire ants!

Marcia said...

I love wedding pictures. Wow, you are all SO gorgeous!

Christina Farley said...

Danyelle- yes, it was such a wonderful wedding!
Kate- thanks. The exterminator came today. Yeah! They hadn't even discovered the food yet, just the wet towels on my bathroom floor. Crazy.
Golden Eagle- I loved the shoe thing too, so fun
Talli- I thought it was cute too about how they show you where the chocolate is. The important things. :-)
Krispy- the yellow really was lovely
Marcia- thanks! but I really don't think of myself as gorgeous, but my sister sure is!
