Phew. Took a little break from the Internet... it was nice. :D I think I'll stay away more often now. LOL. Anywho... on to May 2009!
This cute little kitty had been following us around since July 2008. This month, I finally let her spend most of her time in our house. AND I finally got some photos of her! We named her Kissa (Finnish word for "cat").
Jeremy and I decided we needed to get out more. We went to this coffee shop by our house, Bear Rock Cafe. They closed shortly after. :-( Ah well. We DID get some cute photos! (This dress I'm wearing? Navy with white embroidery. CUTE! I got it earlier that month. It was only $15 at Ross! YAY!)
And a close-up of my SUPER cute hubby, Jeremy!
Hubby worked A LOT that month, and I had three days off in a row, so I decided to drive the FIVE hours away (McAllen, Texas) to be with him when he was done with work each day. :D Five hours in a car alone (well... with the puppies) gave me A LOT of time to amuse myself...
And the puppies (Amber, left; Ruby, right) were stoked to be able to come along. They slept most the way. They're so good in the car. :-)
I also got to spend time with my friend Bethina, and her boys: Bryce (left) and Sean (right). They are SO sweet!!! Honestly, they make me feel that if I have a boy in the future, I will be just fine. LOL. I get to see them again this week (and their new baby sister!), so I'm STOKED! :-D
One day, Jeremy asked me if I wanted to "craft" with him. That meant making RJ-45 cables (ethernet). I have to admit, I complained a bit before I gave in. But I was really good at them! After we were done, I was like, "Okay... mastered that craft! Back to scrapbooking!" LOL. (Photo was turned to black and white because I had JUST woken up and had no make up or shower... LOL.)
May is the month that it starts getting HOT in Texas. I needed new clothes. For some reason, while living in Rhode Island, I had neglected to buy many tank tops or tees (or skirts, for that matter); and in Texas, that's all you live in for a good four months. I even bought some with PRINTS! LOL. (I'm a solid/stripey girl.)
And... I made this (and forgot to post it!) for my friend Selena... a gift for graduation that month. She loved it. :-)
And that's about it! Hey! What do you think of my new blog header?! I made it myself! Well, I used my Wacom pen and tablet. The font is my own too. It was SO fun. I've been meaning to for a while. New photo of myself too since I cut A LOT of my hair off this week... :-)
