I started just ignoring the rose bushes I didn't kill, and look at that. I finally have roses.


We drove into Chicago today and went to some awesome shops and boutiques that Cass and Georganne told me about. One of them was Foursided. This was a display at their front counter. I immediately thought of "Big Baby" from Toy Story 3.

"She never LOVED you, Big Baby!!!"

Crab Rangoon


Every time we try a new take-out place, I hope in vain that the crab rangoon will be as good as China One's. These were probably the closest I've ever come, so that was a nice surprise.

Grilling out


My Grandmother's House in Bryan, Ohio

My Mom and Dad have been fixing my Grandmother's house up for the past few years. It's one of the oldest brick houses left in the the town. We're staying here this weekend before we head to the cottage in Grand Beach. It's a really beautiful house, and it's amazing how my parents have brought it back to life. They're all the buzz in town. : )

I'm going to make a flickr account with more photos of the exterior and interior.

Summer Vacation 2010 to Grand Beach, Michigan started today. We flew in to Chicago today, and are staying at my Grandmother's house in Bryan, Ohio for the weekend. Then we will be at the cottage in Grand Beach all week!!!

Ripe strawberries

Growing strawberries

Well, I did all that work growing strawberries this summer and I think these five are all I'm going to get. The two ripe ones were delicious, though.

Going Down


Air conditioning!

Adam's parents bought us some portable air conditioning so we could actually sleep in our house during the super hot weather we've been having. Yay!

Retro Miniatures

Bed & headboard


We bought lamps and I finally found some things to put on the headboard shelves, so this is probably one of my favorite parts of the house.
