About Me

My photo
This is me. Not much to say. I think there is nothing better in the world than having a good friend that you can have an entire conversation with and never say a word. I love to read. Nicholas Sparks and James Patterson are two of my favorite authors. I am not afraid to choose a book by an unknown author if the title catches my eye. If my kitchen was not so small I would have people over all the time and cook for them. I love to try new meals and make new things. Life without a pet is not a full life in my opinion. I have one dog – Sasha. Could not imagine not having her there every day to shed all over my house and get in my way and be totally excited when I got home from work. She knows when to jump on my lap and just be there when I have a bad day. People need to give animals more credit and everyone should own one.

Weekend in Webster City

Sasha and I took a road trip to Webster City, IA this weekend to spend time with Chris. I have been there before but this time Sasha came with. Looks like traveling is touch on the ol' girl. Yeah right! Looks to me like she had it made on the ride. Too bad she can't drive. I could have used a nap!!! Especially on the drive home!
She laid here for the majority of the trip.
If this picture had volume you would hear her snoring away. Rough life!!! Chris all dressed up and ready to go out!!!

Ah so cute!!!
Chris - THANK YOU for the great weekend. I had a blast and can't wait to see you again on Friday!!!

House Update

Dad helped us get the paver patio started...
Mom, April and I took the next few rows...
Thursday night Mom and April came over and we finished the paver patio. Thanks ladies, I could have never done it without you!
Constructing a paver patio was very hard work for Sasha. Apparently she felt she needed a break and a MGD Light 64 when it was all over.

Vacation + Cleaning Garage = Doctor Visit

Okay - so I have come to the conclusion that I can't take vacation and clean during that vacation. I had a few days off and was so very excited to clean and organize my garage. Yeah I know, vacation and excited to clean, that should have been my first clue that this was not going to end up good.

So I was cleaning and got a piece of wood under my finger nail and had to have Jenn and the kids haul me to town for a doctors visit that was so very painful. After he finally pulled the wood out of my nail I asked to keep it. Who knows why???
Not the best picture but I am sure you get the idea. OUCH!!!

Happy Birthday Barrett

B turned a year old on the 8th!!!
