Snow in Ames! It was a beautiful sight after a pretty warm winter. I mean, come on, this southern girl fully believes if the temps are going to be low, there had better be some white stuff falling! So finally, we got it! It snowed all day Sunday and we woke to a very pretty sight today. Of course, these folks just keep driving in it, so no school or work cancellation, but it sure it pretty! Enjoy these pics of our home on Grand!

Oh mom!

She just couldn't resist. Thanks mom for the cake and flowers. My co-workers LOVE my birthday as much as me cause mom has sent a cake here to work for the past 4 years and they get to share in the goodies! She sent it a day early so they could enjoy and help partake of the calories! FUN FUN FUN

Mark and I are going to celebrate the big day tomorrow at his parent's lake house. No big party this year . . . . just me and my sweet husband. I will of course be taking phone calls from all the well-wishers (hint, hint).

Here are photos of the cake and the flowers.

I love you mom.

New Year's Eve

Here are a few quick shots of me and my sweetie on New Year's Eve. That's our "New Year's" tree in the background too! (It is just our Christmas tree without any decorations! Why not enjoy it a few more days. I ended up with the quick onset of strep shortly into the evening and din't feel much like celebrating. But it was exciting to think about a new year ahead nonetheless. Things to come in 2007: my birthday! A trip to Turkey (February), Mark's Birthday (April) and more! More to come soon.

We also had a holiday visitor! Catie Blunt from Ruston came to reconnect with the friends she made during her summer internship with me at Cornerstone. It was fun to see her and to have her as our first overnight guest at 1115 Grand! This is a picture of Catie and her buddy Timothy.
