May Updates

Hello, folks! I know it's been awhile - it's been a busy May. The first weekend in May we painted our bedroom. We also decided that's the last time we try to paint anything by ourselves. We suck at it. But it's done and it looks better than it used to. What we need now is some artwork to tie it all together. Here are some pics:


The weekend after that we had dinner with our friends Sam and Ben. They just moved into a house in Blaine, which is about 9000 miles from here. Ok, it just seems like so far away - takes us a good 45 mins to get there. That sucks, cuz we have a good time together, so it would be nice to live closer. But they made us country fried venison, cheesy potatoes, and asparagus. I was a little concerned about the venison, but it was really good! It all was. Sam made some crazy cucumber gin that Justin tried but I didn't. I made banana cream pie with homemade whip cream for dessert. Good times with good friends.

The next weekend was Mel's wedding! It was an awesome time, minus the losing my keys part. But the wedding went off without a hitch. I didn't get many pics (I was the maid of honor!), but here are a few. Now Josh and Melissa are in Jamaica, probably laying on the beach drinking a Miami Vice. Oh, I am jealous. Justin, I think we are in need of a tropical vacation!

Sunday the fam went to Golden Corral for Mom and Dad's anniversary. It was good to get everyone together and hang for a little bit before I came back to MN. And it was good to stuff my face too. That's what Americans do best, right?

Then it was back to work this week. And so far it's been a busy one. My brain is pretty much fried from the wedding weekend and this week of work. I can't tell you how excited I am to sleep in this weekend! I think a BBQ should also be in the plans, supposed to be 80 on Sunday! We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen, so I will post some pics of that soon. It's lookin really good so far! And I suppose I should put up some pics of our bathroom that's finally done.
I'll leave you with a few pics of Jack and Kaya I got when I stopped over at Steven and Erin's on my way outta town. Good pups - Jack is a monster!

Peace out.
