Project Life ~ Week 33

One of the things I love about Logan is he always makes me laugh, and he doesn't mind if I share it! He rocks! Tam is so sweet to go get pedicures with me, even if we are only going camping. It was Fritz's first time in the camper and he was really good! He had his first swim, I'm not sure if he liked it but I think he eventually will. He also had his first ride in the convertable, he is fearless!

City Barbeque, the Northstar Cafe, and Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream! We then went to Jacque & Jimmy's and had an amazing steak!

Tammy & I drove our 1989 Toyota Celica GT Convertiable to Toledo, Ohio this week! We hung out with the kids, built earthquake safe "buildings" and paper airplains that could fly, painted bedrooms, and read sidewalks! We have missed these babies so much and had a wonderful time hanging out with all of them. (We even looked at some houses for sale...just in case.) What a wonderful visit! By the time we make it home we will have driven 1,758 miles!

What a lovely weekend. Our first camping trip of 2015. We had over 15 deer walk pretty much through our campsite, so cool. I believe that our camper had the best security system in the park.

Oh. My. Gosh. We got to meet Jack Hanna this week!!! He has been one of my heros for 33 years and I have no words for how wonderful it was to meet him. We went to a Birmingham Zoo charity event and he was the speaker. He is just a doll. Bucket List checked. We also went to a wedding at the sweetest little barn, just beautiful. On the way we got to stop at the falls in Gadsden. There's only one way to top off a week like this...Krispy Kreme Donuts.

Project Life 2015 ~ Week 16

A slow but fun week. When I went to get my hair done this week I made a new friend. Andy is 4 months old and spent my whole appointment with me. Tam & I had a great date night at Cypress Inn (one of my favorite places.) On Saturday Mom & I went to Urban Decay's Master Class! We had so much fun and got lots of goodies. When we were done there we went to lunch with Tam and her mom. Afterwards we saw the biggest dragonfly I have ever seen. It was bigger than my hand and so pretty.
