How was your weekend? Mine was exhausting in the best way possible.

Cuttest baby ever.

I had an early wake up call on Saturday to watch Mason after a night of beer, fish, basketball, and brewing with our friends Matt and Jenny. I was ready for a long nap!

And I got one in just in time for Nick and Emily to make a surprise trip Omaha to introduce Mickey to our cats. It went just as expected! The cats hate playful puppies... who knew?!

The puppies switch Kongs. Hooray for sharing!

I wrapped it all up on Sunday with a killer breakfast casserole and a lazy day on the couch.

Next weekend: The Flaters join us in Omaha for a fun Easter weekend!

Remember when my hair was super long? Yeah... I miss it. I know once it gets back to that length, I will hate how stringy/straight/flat it is. But right now, I just wish I had it back. The grass is always greener, right?!?

It's been almost a year since I went to my pixie cut. Somedays, I miss that style too.

I'm just in the ackward stage right now where you just don't quite know what to do with it. I'm sure I'll be here for awhile. I'm trying to just enjoy the journey, but I'm also very impatient. I'm already thinking about what I want to do next...

Imagine this... only red!

Long, red, and thick bangs! Ooo la la!

On Monday, Andrew and I were sitting at the table after just finishing dinner. We were talking while I was doodling on a random piece of paper. Then a brilliant idea came to me! Drawing contest. The subject: Coby.

Let's just say that neither one of us are artists, but we both laughed really hard. I will let the public decide the winner...

Ok, guys. I'm getting another crazy idea. I feel like I get some randomly good/crazy/enthusiastic ideas that seem really good at the time, but in reality, they are kinda out there. Ready for this one? Chicken coop!


What if... we built a chicken coop in our backyard? got some chickens? collected our own eggs? Part of me thinks that this is very unrealistic. Another part of me thinks, why the heck not!  I'm just want to be more self-sufficient and earth-friendly. You know what I mean?


There are a few problems. Maybe just one big problem. I don't like birds. I'm actually kinda terrified of them, but I do love eggs. Do you think that there are any classes that I could take to learn more about how to raise chickens for their eggs? You know, like what do they need? How do you even collect eggs? Do they ever get angry and freak out and peck at you for taking the eggs?


My first, and really only, source of information is (drum roll) reddit. They have a subreddit about backyard chickens. I'm going to fish around and see what else I can learn. Any suggestions and info would be appreciated!
