Class Reunion

DJ had his 10 year class reunion this past weekend.  We met up with two other couples beforehand and grilled ribeye steak sandwiches (yummmmmmmmy).  We went to the park and of the 90-100 (I can't remember the exact number) of kids he graduated with, I think there was around 20.  Not bad!  I don't feel too bad about only having 13 of the kids in my class of 40 show up to my 5 year one!!  It was a pretty relaxed ordeal.  Just catching up with people he hadn't seen in awhile and I met a bunch of new people.  We slipped by the bar on the way home to see a few of them who had stopped there and then headed home. 

Sunday I got to work on the corner shelf that I am making from an old door out of the rental (pictures to come soon!)  I'm hoping to get it done by Saturday for the big baby shower!  : ) 

Our front doors finally got painted!  They're not re-hung yet, but I'm excited to see them up.  They should look a little better than the "random tan that didn't match anything" color that they were!  Hope you had a great weekend and be careful in the heat this week!!

About Us

First off, we're not married.  I am stealing his last name in hopes that some day (probably far far far down the avenue) he will decide to share it with me! 
He's a farmer and a trucker.  I'm a research worker in the agronomy world.  Hot. Dog.  Don't we sound exciting?!  :)  We have two dogs, BT and UC. 
I adopted BT after he was found roaming the streets.  He lived with my roommate and me in our small apartment until we slowly took over the rental last year!  He now spends most of the day chasing bugs, birds, and the occasional rabbit, as well as barking at anything or nothing... however you want to look at it! 
We adopted UC this past March.  A friend mentioned he had him and according to DJ, I "got all giddy" and apparently he can't say no to a giddy TK!!  So on a Sunday afternoon UC was added to the family.  After going on a diet, he now spends his days following BT around and eating sticks. 
We also had A and B, mice that lived in our mailbox (I'm sure the mailman grew fond of them).  They had babies last week and DJ said no more and kicked them out.  Sad.  So far they haven't been back, but I have a feeling once they let DJ lose a little steam, they'll be back!! 
So that is who we are!  If you have anymore questions, please let me know!!

I've had this blog for some time now and just never had the time to start writing, nor anything exciting to write about.  Well, the latter has not changed, but I figured I had a few minutes of my lunch break to kill so I might as well start typing!  This blog is a way for me to communicate with family and friends I don't get to see much of and keep them up to date with my life.  I imagine it will be mostly ramblings with maybe a funny story (most likely at my expense) thrown in there every now and again!  Welcome and I hope you enjoy!
