girls on trampolines.

i decided today that i was going to show you my new dress that i got the other week with a christmas gift card. but then, since it ended up being almost 80 degrees, i thought, "what about an outfit post ON THE TRAMPOLINE?!?" one thing i love about spring-like weather is being able to get outside and jump on my trampoline. it's great exercise, but more than that, it's just super fun. funny story about the trampoline... chris saw it in the classified section of the newspaper a few years ago and went to get it for $20, but the woman ended up just giving it to him so she could get rid of it. we spent so long time that evening putting it together, and once we finished, he got on for the maiden jump, bounced a few times, and then did a butt buster and went right through the mat. springs flew everywhere, his eyes were the size of watermelons, and i laughed so hard i probably peed myself. we got a new mat shortly after that, and luckily no one else has gone through it!

i called chris on my way home this afternoon and told him to be waiting for me when i got home so he could take pictures. there were lots more, but you wouldn't imagine the way body parts shift whilst suspended in air. it's a little scary, so i can't share all of the pictures! also, i meant to do a flip for a picture, but i forgot.

i hope you've had a good week! has the weather been nice in your part of the country, too?

You must bounce for the both of us! ;) You look awesome...as does the sunshine. Its been warm (errr...48 degrees)...here but the wind has been howling today...bringing a cold front. :) Stay warm...and limber! Hearts, janna lynn

  9. I TOTALLY DID THIS and it was a horrible nightmare! haha. Of course, my sil took them, and totally keeps them and shows people which is the MEANEST thing - but trampolines, boobs, intense gravity and cameras DO NOT MIX.

  11. These are amazing! You're so good at it! And you can flip?! I think you need to show us that some other time!

    Your weather looks so nice too - it's still pretty February grey here, but I'm hopeful.

  18. these are such great photos! :)

    i laughed at the image of Chris falling through the mat lol! when i was little and jumping on a family friend's trampoline, her dad surprised us and jumped on it really hard, bouncing me off... onto their dog's poop! true story! ha

    the first house me and Chip lived in together had a trampoline in the backyard and we took it as a sign because the first movie that was on his tv when i went over was Tom Hank's "BIG" :) it was fun to lay out on it during the summer just looking at the stars.

  19. I love the dress! But then again, I always love your outfits. I'm not gonna ask where you got it, because I'm sure it somewhere I can't go and you probably got some incredibly insane deal that I can never find!
