Hawkeye Basement!

So last week Kyle & I did a really good deep cleaning on our house & it felt great! We kinda of transformed our basement area into a "Hawkeye Theme"! I think it turned out nice! And yes we are going to keep it all up despite their sad, sad lose to ISU. Sorry the pics are so dark...not sure why they didn't turn out! But you can at least see what we did!

View from the steps!

Abby's First trip to the Groomer!

So we decided that our foofball Abby needed a trim down & boy did she get one! When I went to pick her up I thought she looked like a completely different dog! But we still love her...just never this short again!

Wendi Comes Home!!!

Like I said in my prior post Wendi's volleyball team had a tournament in Ankeny! How exciting! It was great to see her and get to meet some of her team! Here are a few pics from the weekend.

After Wendi's games on Friday night we went to Cheddars for supper! It is one of mine and Kyle's favorite restaurants! They have the "cookie monster" and it is great! We share meals just so we have room for desert!

I was pretty excited because they have strawberry lemonade with FREE refills!

Jake & Wendi....we couldn't get him to smile!

Before: Wendi & our Double Cookie Monster!

After: Wendi & no Cookie Monster left...we were SUPER full!

I luv my lil sister!

We we were worried what we were going to do with Abby. We stayed in Ankeny Saturday night and didn't want to leave her in the car all day so I took a chance and asked the guy in charge at the tournament if I could bring her in and he said Yes!!!

The girls loved Abby! She got all the attention!

The Southeastern Fire won the tournament!! Way to go girls!!

Wendi loves Abby!

We had to give Wendi her gift before we left the gym because we wouldn't see her on her birthday! :(

But I think she was happy 'cause she got an Ipod!!

Happy Birthday to Me!

My birthday fell on a Wednesday this year, so of course I had to work! I can't wait for a year where its falls on a Saturday or Sunday!! That will be gift enough for me!! I ended up getting off work a couple hours early so that helped!

I got home & this is what Kyle had waiting for me, all my favorite foods! Hy-Vee Chinese, Sonic Strawberry Limeade, Applebees Spinach Artichoke Dip, and of course a Snickers candybar!

And of course flowers!

My man is so good to me! He also bought me another table for my craft room!

Wendi happened to be home from Florida. Her volleyball team had a tournament in Ankeny so she was home to help celebrate my birthday, which was great! Pictured below is Wendi with her boyfriend Jake....we like him! ;)

Mom made me a Strawberry Crunch cake...its sssoo good!! Thanks Mom!

And Wendi's birthday is just three days after mine so since she was home Mom made her a cake too, Oreo Ice Cream Cake! Another one of my favorites!

Gift Time! Mindi & Preston got me this puppy journal for Abby!

They also gave me this frame that I get to decorate...not sure what occassion I am going to use, but I can't wait to get to work on it!

Mindi & Preston! Thanks for the gifts guys!

Me & another one of my (early) birthday presents, Abby!

Another pic with my favorite guy...he always does so good of treating me SUPER great on my birthday! Thanks Babe!

Lost Island

We spent the day with our friends Sara & Vahn at their family's place on Lost Island. It was bitter sweet to be there. My family had a place there for 10+ years while I was growing up. And as you can see in the picutres below it is now for sale again!! :) Must be fate! It was a fun day with them!
