Rocking Chair

So last year I bought a ton of old stuff thinking that I would have time that summer to revamp them and make them look better. Well me having tons to do... haha I didn't get to all of them. I did however finally finish this awesome chair! I repainted it and made it so it can be used outside or inside. Sadly, I don't have anywhere to put it and am trying to sell it. I'm asking $50 for it. If you want it shoot me an email or if you have a better offer, that's even better! :)

Another Year Older...

This year, Chase will be 26. Closer to 30 rather than 20. I can't believe we're getting so old! 5 months till I'm 26!

I've been trying to make different cakes for Chase. Chase really liked the one I made last year. I wanted to do something different... So I found a pretty awesome recipe and helpful tips on how to make your own ice cream cake. If you want to learn how to make one like Baskin Robbins here's the site. Ice cream cake is my favorite and I remember getting them for my blizzard birthday's when we lived in Maryland.



We went out to dinner with his family for his birthday dinner, and knowing me I forgot to take pictures. It was really yummy, Chase's favorite, Red Robin. Plus he got a free burger! :)

I knew that the cake I made would last us a long time and we wouldn't even be able to eat the whole thing by ourselves. So I invited the family over on Saturday afternoon for a ice cream cake/birthday celebration. It was fun. Everyone enjoyed the cake. Chase even asked me if I would make it again next year. :)


Happy Birthday to the love of my life! Hope this year is better than last!

A while ago Chase went in for his yearly physical (yes, guys are supposed to get yearly's too). He had this "mole" on his back. It didn't stick out or anything, and kinda looked like a weird freckle. Well after talking about moles and skin cancer in my pathophysiology class, I was kinda worried about it and thought that he should get it checked out. Turns out wasn't anything bad, but it was close to being all of the ABCD's of moles. Asymmetrical, Borders, Color, and Diameter. Here's a picture of the scar. Sorry I totally didn't take any of the before or even after the stitches were taken out.


Pretty big right? It looks like a kiss. The doctor took a little more than an inch off, and did what is called a running stitch to get it sealed up. It looks a lot better now, but still pink.
