finally! a pass!

After 10 long weeks of anticipation, I finally received the score report from the first division of the ARE that I took back in July: and I passed!!

So far:
1 test passed
2 tests taken, results pending
4 tests left to take

What a process this is! I'm taking the rest of the tests between now and December 15th...so that day will be a big sigh of relief...but not as big of a sigh (and a huge hooray) as the day I get the last score report :)

fripp fotos

so I didn't manage to get my camera out until the last day at the beach, on our way back home. but boy, did we have a memorable trip out. On the way off the island, we saw a really big alligator swimming along in a pond. he posed for us several times, with the warning sign close by. great photo shoot, gator!

do you think they get good reception in there?

shots from the course

Lindsay and I went to the practice rounds Monday, and had a great time. It is so beautiful out there!! Here are a few shots from the day.

The first group we watched. The group included Gary Player and Trevor Immelman.

Gary and Trevor discussing clubs. Gary was so fun to watch interact with the other players and the crowd.

Lindsay was trying for an up close shot of Zach Johnson (2007's champion). Unfortunately, he was applying massive amounts of sunscreen the whole time :o)

Vijay Singh teeing off on 7. Don't get behind him in a practice round, he goes slow and hits a ton of balls!

Zach and his caddy, with Anthony Kim teeing off.

Ian Poulter. Most definitely the best pants we saw on a player. What you can't see is the seafoam green belt that matches. I dig his outfit.

Ishikawa had the best club cover of the day--it's a stuffed version of himself!

The shark in the hunt. Greg Norman was back after 7 years. Great to see him!

some belated Christmas cheer

So I know that it's after Christmas & New Year's, but I am finally getting around to posting some pictures and videos of my house decorated for Christmas (after some encouragement from my very active-blogging sister-in-law). I've had the outside shots for weeks, and just never got around to posting. And then it was time to take down my very dried out tree, and I decided I needed a picture of it first. So, for all of you who did not get to come to my house this year, here is a tasting of what it looked like. It's kind of sad now, without any decor up. Just back to plain old house. But now, the cheer will at least live on in photo & video!

The tree this year received a new bow at the top, as well as a new skirt & matching ribbons. I really think they add a lot!

The front with the flash...

...and without. The wreath on the front door also got a new bow--made completely out of ribbon I already had. Sweet!

sorry for the sideways video--not sure how to turn it...

and this is the rear patio.

all in all, I had a great time decorating for Christmas (no surprise there). now just to get all of the storage bins back in the attic... :)
