Summer Happenings

So, my sister and I were walking out of Habitat for Humanity - a great thrift store (with 50% off every Saturday by the way) - and this is what we saw. A car was across the street, on fire and no one was around....weird....

We recently had a visit from Rob's Aunt Gayle and Lynn. It was a fun weekend...
For Rob's birthday we went to Busch Gardens....we love to go to the Irish Dance show, however this time it was more interesting than ever as a girl dancer totally biffed it at the end of the show...pretty funny...she just popped back up and started again, but we got a good laugh :)

We also enjoyed a free concert at Waterside....Blue Ground Under Grass...I think that's what it was called. It was a ton of fun and a beautiful night!

Happy Birthday Rob!

Happy 27 years to my honey! I just wanted everyone to know how blessed I am to be married to Rob. The last three years of marriage have been incredible, so thanks Rob....thanks for working so hard....thanks for taking time to hang out and then having to make up for it in your studies later....thanks for being spontaneous when I want to have everything planned out.....thanks for getting double-cheeseburgers and dominoes pizza even when we know we shouldn't....thanks for helping around the house....thanks for loving Christ more than anything and helping me to follow your example....and thanks for always showing me how much you love me.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

House Work Day

Well....here we are again....doing more improvements on our house. We enjoyed working half the day at our place and half the day at Branines - getting some much-needed projects done. Thanks for all your help S & S!

Here are a few pics of what we did. Our project was to landscape our front yard. There's was to sand trim and work on painting it. It was a long but profitable day! (Even the dogs got in on the action)

Who Knew?

Well...Rob had a big surprise the other day when he walked into the garage and there...in a box...with no light, water, or soil, our amaryllis bulb was blooming. I'll admit, I'm not much of a gardener, but I was pretty sure that all plants needed those few things...

The other "who knew" is that I can sew. Well, a little. I just made my first curtains now that I am three years into marriage. What an accomplishment :). Anyways, this is our sunroom before and then after painting and curtains.
