NEW !!!!

If you have been following my facebook updates you know that I have been trying to fight off getting a cold. Well today I officially lost. I have a cold or allergies or something and it's making it hard to breath and my eyes are burning. This is a total bummer because I was hoping to be in good health before I ran my first 5k on Sunday morning. However, I still have two days to recover, and Stephen just brought me some good medicine.

Okay so today, despite the sadness to my parents we moved the piano to our house. Mom just doesn't play it anymore and Stephen and I really wanted to start playing again and take some lessons.
The only place we could put it was our guest bedroom. And yes, that's my old trundle bed in there too. We had it tuned and the guy said that's it's in really good condition and that yamahas keep their pitch really well so we didn't need any major tuning. YEAH! I haven't played in about 10 years so I only know one song by finger memory. Stephen is going to have to help me remember how to read the bass clef also.

In other exciting news we transplanted our vegatables to the garden yesterday. I am super excited to watch them grow and bear fruit!! We have 4 tomato plants that are about 4 inches tall. There were actually 6 in the pot but we decided 4 was enough.
And we have 9 green and red pepper plants that are about 2 inches tall.
Among our herbs I planted Parsley...

Basil and Cilantro....

Tomorrow Stephen and I and some friends from work are going to the Arts Festival, Pasta night is on Saturday and our run is on Sunday Morning. So be looking out for the next blog update!!!!

Short and Sweet...

So.....I have a blog, so I should blog.

I last wrote about the weather....which is lame...but in Oklahoma it can be quite interesting. So in Feb. we had a tornado and the last weekend in March it snowed. Go figure. Tulsa got about 3 inches and the panhandle got about a foot!
The daffodils that were all over my yard bloomed early and have already died. It was sad, but we have already planted new things for late spring and summer. Last weekend, Stephen and I spent the ENTIRE day in the yard getting it ready to plant. We took out some bushes and rocks, tilled the dirt, put in a new border, and didn't get any flowers planted until after it rained for a whole day. I waited as long as i could stand it (a day and half) for the dirt to dry and planted our flowers before it rained again. Our front garden area should be full of color in no time!

I also started an herb and veggie garden 6 or 8 weeks back and desperately need to move the tomatoes to the ground. I have 5 tomato plants in 1 pot...and i just saw 3 more buds today!!!! We have a few green/red pepper plants as well as some basil, cilantro, and parsley.

My mom and I went to go see the King Tut exhibit in Dallas back in Feb. It was alright, like any other historic exhibit. We had a bit of time to look at the modern art stuff, which is say the least. We had dinner with the Gerbers and everyone else. As always it was quite the commotion.Here, we all take a turn at "skip-it".

Please don't be offended by the following video. Stephen thought the lady had a weird look on her we covered her up. Then to be funny we gave the vice president a top hat and a little beard. Oh, just watch....hopefully you'll get a little laugh out of it like we did.
