This week...


Oliver was especially cute this week.


And, my boss, Debbie got me these pretty tulips for my 2 year anniversary at Iliff. I love my job.

Bunny Ears



This is little Joey & Katherine meeting the UND Sioux Hockey Players.  Bunny ears are alive & well.  No one is safe.  I guess Joey's mission was accomplished, because these really crack me up.
Jamie took these photos. Sooo cute!

Quilting: Day 2



I spent a snowy Sunday quilting.  I've sewed all the strips together and just finished ironing all the seams.  The strips need to be sewed together, but I've made a big dent today.  It was so relaxing & thanks to Netflix & 2 new Gentle Waves cds, I stayed entertained the whole time.
I cooked more this weekend then in the last few weeks combined! Loren came over on Saturday with homemade rhubarb pie (YUM) and I made some prosciutto pizza.

Loren's photo! Yummmmmmm


 Loren gave me this Crockpot recipe and I tried it today. Sososos good.  Don't worry - Oliver didn't watch me sew all day....Emily & Natalia came over tonight, with Sally, Oliver's favorite puggle.  He's now totally exhausted and snoring little doggie snores.

New Sewing

Last weekend I sewed a dress,  made from a Burda Style pattern.  It was easy & quick.  I needed to whip up something to get me back in the sewing mood and it worked!
More pics to follow. . . 


I followed the directions so carefully, which is pretty rare for me.  Hanging them up definitely helped.


This weekend I'm starting a new quilt.  I've been working on one for Chelsey for awhile and have been so (sew) lazy!  I can finish this one up quickly and then finish up Chelsey's afterwards.

Legally Blonde

On Wednesday, Marie, Loren & I went to see Legally Blonde!  It was really sweet and fun (and some of the shoes were really great, too!) It doesn't really compare to Wicked at all, but it was still a great time.


Before the show, we went to the Corner Office and had martinis.  I ordered the "Secretary" & Marie ordered the "Dean Martini."  We didn't get a picture of Loren's drink. Sad.


I got a chance to wear a headband that the Bill Olson family got me for Christmas! It's so sparkly - I love it!

Vegetable of the Week: Sweet Potato

Image via here

After much encouragement from Natalia & Beth, I decided to try sweet potatoes!
I basically cut them up and roasted them with some garlic and olive oil & I really liked them.  I made too much and so I ended up throwing the rest out (which almost cost me my friendship with Beth).
I cut my finger open with the first cut of the knife and 5 days later, it's starting to close up and heal.  P.S. Thanks Marie, for supplying me with many, many band-aids!
