I've been away from here for a while. Our laptop suddenly stopped working at the beginning of last week so we only have our desktop computer at home that doesn't have internet access...boo. It's frustrating not having the internet at home. Work has been way too busy lately to catch up on internet things there, but I finally have the opportunity today.

I can't post any pictures, but hopefully soon I'll be able to share updates on some flowers...our Pride of Mobile azalea is fully loaded & blooming with huge, gorgeous blooms. We planted a new yellow daisy shrub over the weekend & some purple African daisies in our back garden. There will be more yard work this weekend with 18 bags of red mulch to spread in our front flower beds. Lowe's had it on sale last weekend for $2/bag & thanks to our neighbor letting us know, we got to take advantage of that.

I'll also have to post some new pictures of Sadie. We're taking her to the vet next Wednesday to be "fixed". To our best calculations, she weighs about 32 lbs., but we'll find out exactly how much next week. She's quite a doll!

After my 3 days next week at work(Tues, Wed. & Thur), I have 7 days off!!! I have big plans for them too. I'm hoping to finish painting the trim in our hall bathroom & work on getting some accessories for it. I may start painting our bedroom too. I have some sconces I ordered from Southern Living that I'm dying to hang on the wall, but we're waiting until we paint. I'll have to post some picturs of the sconces. I couldn't get a great picture but they're gorgeous. Otherwise, I hope to have some time to relax and catch up on some reading.

I finished making the invites for Courtney's shower & mailed them on Friday. I think they turned out great. I hope she likes them. I took a picture, which again I'll post as soon as I can. The shower plans are coming right along & now it's less than a month away...that's hard to believe!

I should get back to work. I hope to post pictures soon

Chris' birthday & the weekend

Yesterday was Chris' 24th birthday! I worked 7a-7p yesterday, so we had a mini celebration after we both got in from work, but we will have a nice dinner together later this weekend to celebrate. I gave him two shirts, a c.d., & a pair of binoculars. I figured the binoculars would come in handy on our trip to Alaska!

Tonight Chris & I are headed to a Durham Bulls baseball game with Will & Vanessa. We're meeting for dinner before at Mellow Mushroom downtown & then we'll walk over the ballpark. It's supposed to be in the low 50s today so it'll be a chilly game as it doesn't start until 7 p.m., but I'm looking forward to it. Will is leaving for Hungary next Wednesday to do some chemistry research abroad so it'll be nice to spend a little time with them before he heads away. Safe travels Will!

Even though it's going to be a bit chilly Saturday, we're planning to work in the yard. We've got some bushes we need to dig up and a few new things to plant. Our Pride of Mobile azalea has just started blooming & it's absolutely gorgeous. I'll have to post some pictures of it soon.

Sunday is of course Easter. I always look forward to Easter worship services. This will be the first Easter that we will celebrate it at our church in Chapel Hill, University Baptist. We're looking forward to it but we will definitely miss celebrating with our family and church friends from home.

Happy Easter!
