I've been a busy bee.

So busy in fact that I haven't had time to blog!  Or maybe I've not been too busy but instead have been unable to steal my husbands computer long enough to attach some photos!  Here is a run down from the last two weeks in photos!

My husband looking good at a church picnic :)

Part of a wedding gift from Michael and Melanie, the twiblings' parents!

What I made from that gift!  My scones were just a bit dry, I'll try for one minute less next time!

My new hair cut!  And a kiss for my husband,

The other part of my gift from M & M!!!  An amazing cast iron pan, and two beautiful le creuse casserole dishes!  Aren't they beautiful!

Our good friends Joe and Asena had their baby, Caedmon Hans Kurkinen.  Isn't he adorable!  I couldn't get enough of him!

Lastly my bestie Nicole came into town from Bartlett IL, and we went to Montage (duh!).  Yummy spold and umm...I don't remember what the other stuff was called, but it was delicious!  

So that has been my last few weeks in a nutshell!  Oh, btw, you know Julia at 551 East Furniture Design?  She did a give-away a few weeks ago and I WON!  YESSS, I know, I never win anything, this was so exciting!  I won a Ryobi Sander.  I can't wait to get it in the mail and get started doing something with it!  

Lastly, I just figured out how to add single pages to my blog (woohoo!), so I've been updating my 26 before 26 if you are interested in checking out my progress!


  1. I love cast iron pans. Cooking, while getting a wrist work out! Good luck on the scones next time!

  2. looks like you've been having fun! I have a cast iron skillet and it is my favorite. Are yours preseasoned or will you have to season them. If you do, no worries, it's super simple.

    To make the collages I use picnik. It's free on the internet but I signed up for their upgrade because it gives you more options and it's only something like $24 for an entire year.

  3. LOVE the dishes, (some of my favorite wedding presents were le creuset:-), and the food and the little bubba. Happy summer! xoxo
