Picture of the Month-July

This picture is in honor of Bret, the creator of my blog! (Those are his real teeth too!) Without him I would still be in the stone age using pencil and paper for a journal.

Free Pack of Printer Paper

From now until sometime in the fall, I think September or October, Office Depot is giving a free pack of recycled printer paper to anyone who brings in an empty ink cartridge to be recycled. This is a great deal! We're helping the environment and getting free paper! I encourage you all to take advantage of this. You may have to check to see if your Office Depot is participating.

Kat's Vet Trip

Today dad and I took Kat to the vet. This has been his first trip to the vet since his traumatic leg experience (if you don't know, my cat is now a tripod, having only 3 legs). He did very well. He deserves a sticker.

Picture of the Month-June

In honor of Wienerwald and Jennie Bad Knee this picture has been chosen by the panel as June's picture of the month!

Mini Coopers

This is my next car!!! Maybe not in red though because they have a lot of colors from which to choose. Ryan is teaching me how to drive a stick-shift so I can get a Mini.
Check out the Mini Cooper site.


I'm trying to collect good recipes...sort of as a hobby, so if you have one please share!

Wedding Dress

Here is a picture of my wedding dress. Isn't it beautiful?! :) I'm so excited! I went to Cincinnati to a bridal store to try it on and it was lovely, but a little too expensive, so I am having a lady make it.

Picture Pages

Do you all remember Picture Pages with Bill Cosby??? It was a tv show and he had this pencil or crayon or some kind of writing utensil. I just barely remember it. Let me know if you remember and refresh my memory about it.

Ryan and Me

Here is an old picture of Ryan and me.

Busy, Busy

Good grief...I come home from Germany and I am very glad to be home and excited to relax for a while and now this weekend I have two weddings to go to. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't want to go, it's just that I want some time to be lazy. :)
The first wedding is tonight, Amy Parker's, a friend from UofL and tomorrow afternoon is Brittany Denison's! I need to get my mental notepad out for these weddings to log ideas for my own!! Yippee!
Ok, that is enough for now. Ryan and I are going to run some errands.

Four Legged Cats

Just for the record...I don't mind four-legged cats (sorry Squeakie and Breezer). Bret was the one who decided to add that...although it was pretty funny.

Germany Trip

Since I was not able to write while I was in Germany I will write some stuff now, if I can remember. :)
The first part of the trip consisted of a choral competition. It was excellent. The choirs were fantastic. Not only was there a competition, but every night we went to a different town to here a concert given by two of the groups involved in the competition. It was a nice way to see the small towns of the area.
(We stayed in Martkoberdorf which is a quaint place in southern Germany close to Munich.) During the competition we stayed in this house that this family rents out. It was three floors: the family lived on the ground floor, someone else lived on the first floor and we were on the second floor. It was so nice, cheap, and she brought us breakfast every morning!
The later half of the trip was a choral conducting seminar. We conducted portions of music, and teachers would critique our work. It was definitely a learning experience.
Finally at the end of the trip we got to do a little bit of sight-seeing. We went to two different castles Neuschwanstein & Herrenchiemsee built by Crazy King Ludwig II (but he wasn't actually crazy.) The castle at Disney world was based on Neuscwanstein and Herrenchiemsee was patterned after Versailles.
We flew out of Munich and so also got to sight-see a bit there. In Munich we went to the Hofbrauhaus which is basically a huge beer garden!!!
Come back soon and I will have some pictures posted from the trip!
(Jennie, there is a surprise one especially for you!!!)
