Moon Lake... Rethought

Let it be decreed that I, Nicole Elizabeth London, am not a happy camper.

And let it be stated for the world to see that if one decides to take me camping they must be ok with slight whimpers when I think a critter is crawling by head, my compulsive need to be completely in my sleeping bad so nothing can get me, my paralyzing fear that a moth is going to fly into my mouth and my fear of spiders.

All things considered, on my latest camping adventure to Moon Lake I feel that I fared quite well. I only freaked out 2 of the 3 nights, didn't have my sleeping bag cocooned around me, and was able to keep quiet about the mouse living with us.... Oh and I was able to avoid the moths for the most part.

In conclusion: I may not be a "happy camper" at all times, but the smores sometimes even that out. :)
Just for the record... despite not always being a "happy camper" I cant wait for next year!
Just thought I'd add that...

Summer Dayz... :)

Along with all the time spent sitting at a desk, waiting on hold, and sounding crazy because I love every second of it, I've been spending my Summer doing this....

Family pictures, trips to Cali, Visits w/Brooke, peeling sunburns, 30 Rock marathons, teaching Primary, going to movies, loving my new dresses from Aunt Faye, and living for casual Friday and the weekend!.... Just look....
