New Addition

Meet my new addition to my sea creature family. Sarah B sent me the awesome seahorse from her vacation in Hatteras. I have these hanging in the first room you see when you walk in my house. The curtains I bought matched the fish perfectly and then I decided that I wanted to collect other painted metal creatures to hang on that wall. I got the crab in a little boutique in Tappahannock, VA.

Here is a close-up of the pretty seahorse. She fits in perfectly!

Meet Delia

This is Delia Reese Bauckman. My good friend since Kindergarten, Amber, had a beautiful baby girl a few weeks ago. She's one of the prettiest babies I've seen. My first visit was Sunday before field hockey - hence the tacky red Field House shirt. Mom & baby are doing great! I visited them again yesterday and got to see Delia in her first bathing suit. We took her too the pool for a little bit - she was not happy about the cold water - it was hilarious!

Posing for Vogue!

I'm not sure if you can tell, but I've lost some weight. I'm excited to see some pictures that don't have triple chins =) So far I've lost 12.2 lbs. I started Weight Watchers about 6 weeks ago and it's going great. I'm actually very motivated to work out & I've been doing well with watching what I eat too. Hopefully the pics of me on this blog will just get skinnier & skinnier!

More Pics of Callie

Of course since I don't have any kids...I've got all the time in the world to take pictures of my cute kitten. I especially want to get lots of pictures when she is still tiny - I know she'll grow up and be a mean ol' cat sooner or later ;) Nothing too exciting has been going on. Work is super stressful & I just finished a week of Vacation Bible School teaching the 3-5 year olds. There were 20+ kids in my class each night and the majority of them were boys! Needless to say it was a LONG week!

I got fresh peaches from the Berry Farm last weekend. They were so delicious! And Callie decided to recycle the box and use it as a toy.

Here is another new toy. I found two awesome cat trees on eBay and they arrived this week. I put the monster one in the basement and this smaller blue one in the living room. I know she likes this one...and I'm hoping she plays with the cool orange one in the basement while I'm at work. This is what my hard earned grass cutting money went to!

She's so cute!

Here is the monster orange one. These trees were a lot cooler than I expected and they were pretty easy to put together.

Just chillin'

She's my little gymnast.
