So, it’s been a BUSY month. As you may remember, on May 7, we had the bake sale, featuring pies from CAM I AM:




(I told you I’d remember)









And in a major, MAJOR faux pas, I do not have an image of Zoot’s cake poppers. But  they were there, just not for long.

Needless to say, life got kinda busy after the bake sale. Before the bake sale, this charming, bearded, nut-job of a Dude put a ring on my finger. (I told you he was crazy.) Then I committed us both to the Bake Sale and we haven’t had much time to think about it.

We found a house that we loved and  negotiated  for, and here we are furniture shopping so that we can find pieces we like… then buy them cheaper on the inter-webs. Eventually, there will probably be a wedding of sorts. I want a house and a couch first though, cause I’m needy like that.

In case you were wondering, this lovely fake glass of water with fake lemon can be yours for only $59.99. I wish I was making that up.

Speaking of nut-jobs, I’ve also been spending a lot of time with these two:

Water Rawrs with Cheekers LaRue (action shot courtesy of Nona)


Well, if we’re being honest, I think I’M the nut-job in the picture. I wanted to shoot water guns. Cheekers preferred to water the plants with these strange watering devices.


But we both agreed the most fun thing to do with the water guns is “surprise” Nona.


heh heh.




Max "Bubba" Bialystock Brown. 35 pounds of naughty.

This dog OWNS me. We chose a small house with a big yard FOR THIS DOG. Just look at him. He looks sweet, sure. He’s actually plotting the takeover of Madison County. Why are you laughing? He won’t stop there. He’ll then take the state, and then THE WORLD! Muwahahahahaha.


Don’t worry, he’s easily distracted by peanut butter and small animals.


And peanut butter. Did I mention peanut butter?



I think the most important thing we all can take away from horrible disasters like the one that moved through here and the system that moved through Joplin, is that everything else is “small stuff”. The most important things in life are often the things that we over look and take for granted. Things that can’t be ripped away. Like memories you create when you spend time with the people, places, and things that you love.

I know, yeah yeah yeah. Mushy smushy. I promise to get back to regularly scheduled programming soon. I may have already gotten a head start!

Birthday Cake for Bryan!

    YAY! Thanks for posting. I am sooo happy for you two knuckleheads. AND I can’t believe it took you this long to tell everyone! Why didn’t you tell me when I was baking those pies? I would have baked a special one for you!:)

      Dammit! I would have if I had known there were pies at stake! We waited for two reasons: it seemed inappropriate to “announce” at the time, given that so many people lost so much. And, Dude had to have a “conversation” with my dad. Honestly I think it was just an excuse for them to hang out.
