Here's a great picture I just got from Kelly's mom of the lovely bride and her bridesmaids. (All but one are sorority sisters!)

A big congrats to Kel and Mike! You had a beautiful day and an amazing wedding! Love you both!

PS- recognize those bridesmaid dresses? ;)

A belated Happy Thanksgiving

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We were lucky enough to get to spend this Thanksgiving in our new home with parts of both of our families, and had a great time. This past weekend was extra-busy, with my good friend Kelly's wedding on Saturday. It was a beautiful wedding, complete with a Mizzou win to add to the excitement. More about all of that soon...

I've been a blogger slacker lately... I got some good house pictures on Thanksgiving, so I'll post those later this week when work slows down a bit. (I have my last training "exam" this week and that's keeping me pretty busy!)

love to all and GO MIZZOU! :)

Bailey meets a baby!

A few weeks ago, we had the privilege of having two of my very good friends from grad school, Maureen and Colene over for lunch/to see the house/to celebrate birthdays. Of course that meant Maureen's daughter, Miss Maddy, got to come for a visit as well. I think both of us were a little nervous about the Bailey-Maddy combination, and though it took them both a bit to warm up to each other, (I think I said "Bailey, no-no!" a million times to keep him from jumping on the couch with Maddy, and Maureen tried to explain that Bailey's bark was a loud Meow...) they finally got a chance to play.

Bailey did a great job, giving Maddy's hand "kisses" and letting her pet him, and Maddy was very good at being gentle. We all had a great time-- thanks ladies! We'll have to do it again soon!

Happy Halloween!

Having been starved of "real" Halloween for the last few years as apartment dwellers, our first Halloween in our new home was a lot of fun. It's an unwritten rule in our neighborhood that everyone MUST have some sort of light-up decoration in their yard, and display it for all of October, so we joined in with pumpkin lights and the luminarias pictured above.
It was nice to finally have real trick-or-treaters, even though the second ring of our doorbell brought our home's previous owner and her daughter. (Awkward!! Should I ask them if they would like to take the old toilet and vanity left from their bathroom remodel, or the shelf full of paint they left in the basement with them? Maybe not the best idea...)

Bailey was loving every minute, and would wait patiently by the door for the next round of kids in costume.

We even carved pumpkins. Here's J's:

Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!! :)
