Recent Activities

Jeb came to visit this weekend. We had a blast getting to hang out, just the two of us, on Saturday. I took her to a place called The Learning Shop, it's a teacher's resource store... so of course we spent a ton of time walking around there drooling over all of the things we wanted to purchase. Then I took her to another place called Studio, You! You pay a fee to use their space and paint, then you purchase some ceramic pieces to paint... and then they glaze and fire it all for you! We spent a good 3.5 to 4 hrs working on our projects!

As you can tell Jeb is concentrating very hard on finishing up the details of her mug!

I spent my time making Otto a Valentine's Day gift... even though it looks more appropriate for St. Paddy's Day... And the saying around the cups says: May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past! I think I could have easily stayed longer and made more things, but we only had an hour left before the store was closing and we both agreed that we needed some coffee!

We ended up meeting our neighbors, Dan and Ashley, at the Claddagh Pub for dinner.

Very tasty Irish food! And a wonderful environment to have a pint and share a good laugh!!

Here are some super sweet flowers my parents gave to me! Love you guys!

Otto once again sent me flowers the day before Valentine's Day! I think they look beautiful. I took a few pictures and even played around with the color filter on my camera... (I really should read the manual so I can do more with it)

And here's are Valentine's Dinner. Otto cooked the steak, I did the shrimp and onions and the microwave took care of the potato! It was tasty and very low-key. Exactly what I needed after the absolutely crazy week I just went through!

Joe, Laura, Ed and I had shrimp, potatoes and steak too. We also had crab and a vegetable mixture that included zuccinni, yellow squash, mushrooms and onions. Then we had pie for desert. Oreo for Ed and Laura, Key Lime for Joe and me.

I hope other people got fabulous dinners too.

P.S. Ed and Joe did all of the dishes for us!!!!:):):)
