From Audrey to Zoey

3 Comments

The Iowa Hawkeyes had their first home football game yesterday which meant Audrey’s job of letting our friend’s dog, Zoey, out in the afternoon started back up again – although I don’t know for how much longer she’ll be employed since they’re due to have their first baby in 2 weeks! Audrey loves dogs and babies so I’m not sure which she’s more excited about: seeing Zoey on Saturdays or going to visit the new baby!

Oh Baby…It’s A Shower!

Last June was my turn to host my monthly Cooking Club group dinner. My fellow member and BFF, Jayne, is due to have a baby in September so I knew June’s dinner would be the perfect time to have a shower for her. After telling her I was going to host a shower for her and that she had no choice, the pinning on Pinterest began! Of course I had to keep the board secret (and it still it is because there are a few gift ideas on there now) so she couldn’t see all the cute things I had been pinning! Below are the pics of what I found on Pinterest and the actual finished project!

Thankful: Day 30

My last Thankful post goes to my friends. I don’t have that many, but I truly cherish the ones I have. We’ve seen each other through happy & sad times, good jobs & bad jobs, drank lots of drinks and eaten lots of food together! It’s the best counseling I could ever ask for. Cheers!
