The cats are fired


Why yes, that is a mouse trap! Cat loves playing with glitter balls, she'll chase them around for hours, but give her a real live mouse and nothing. I've not seen nor heard them chasing it, though I have seen droppings and the cleaning guy saw it running across the bedroom. So yay. I'm officially creeped out.

Patio Table

We got a new patio table and chairs today since our porch neighbors have abandoned us. We opted for the more colorful slingbacks as the chairs that "matched" the table would have cost nearly three times as much.



Now we just need some warmer weather so we can enjoy it!

Happy Easter

This is what I call an excellent Easter dinner. Burgers and sweet potatoes cooked to perfection on the grill and homemade fruit salad. Yum! And bonus, we got to eat outside in the beautiful weather!



And since I forgot to take a picture yesterday, you get a bonus: my first flowers of the year. Not my best photo, but I'm excited about the subject material.

Chi-town

The boy and I went to Chicago for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. I had to be there that week for a tradeshow, so the time seemed right to go down early and have a little fun.

We took the train down from Milwaukee so we didn't have to worry about dealing with a car. Parking in Chicago is ri-donk-ulous!


We got there a little early, so we had to wait. Luckily it was nice outside, so we took advantage!



Since it was cloudy and chilly on the morning of my birthday, we headed to Navy Pier first.

Waiting for the bus


Then as the sky cleared up, we made our way to Millennium Park.



Got to have a picture of the bean.


Broke out the orb for a bit of fun.


The next couple days weren't as nice weather wise, so we ended up not going up to the top of Sears Willis Tower.

We did get a chance to tour the submarine at the Museum of Science and Industry. That was pretty fun!



Checking out the steam train

I enjoyed walking around downtown.


Playing with the orb a bit more. I can't decide whether I like this one better upside-down or right-side up.



Resting my feet after some long days at the tradeshow and enjoying my view through the dirty window.


Overall, it was a pretty awesome time with my boy! One of the best birthdays ever!

Naughty chair

In my cubicle I have a small space between some drawers and the cube wall. I also have a small chair. I don't really have any other place for the chair or anything else to go in the small space, so we put the chair in the space.

But it's a really small space...

Let's play a little catch-up

I've been nursing a nasty cold virus and didn't get out to take pictures like I should have, but I do have a couple to share.

All dressed up!

An outdoor wedding in early April!

Toooooo sick

Starting to get back on track

Lemony Goodness


Angel Food Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. Yum.

Easy recipe:
Mix Angel Food cake mix with can of lemon pie filling and cup of shredded coconut. Spread in 15x10x1 pan (I didn't have that size, so mine were a little thinner) and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Top with your favorite cream cheese frosting and sprinkle grated lemon peel to finish. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.

April 1st

What a difference a month makes!


It's not too pretty yet, but all the snow is gone and there is some green in there! Let's hope for some green on the trees next month.
