I'm a curious girl, so I couldn't wait long. It was filled with wonderful things. A luggage tag, a travel wallet, a yummy smelling Cynthia Rowley perfume sample and the cutest lotion with a butterfly on it.
There was also a passport holder which I was so excited about. Yesterday Dan and I went to look for a little something for one of my dearest friend's birthday and I found a passport holder that I wanted really bad. I talked myself out of it. They must have been inspired.
I am so thankful to have such wonderful friends and examples in my life.
Hannah and Linda, you made my whole week, maybe two weeks.
I love you guys.

Here we are being cute.
Daniel bought me a rainbow Popsicle from Bootsy the ice cream man. Bootsy was super nice.
Then we saw the Zydepunks from New Orleans. They were really cool. I hope to see them play a real show one day. Well, one that isn't outside in the middle of the day with children running around.
Dan and I had a great date day. I feel like I saw Hattiesburg in a whole new way. I just wish the humidity/heat would stay away for a while longer so the flowers would stay pretty.

Dream House Ideas
I hope to have a house where I can have a garden for gnomes to live in and make wishes.
This kitchen is in the schoolhouse and I think it's pretty.
This shower would look so cool in a room with an claw foot tub. I don't really like the feet on it though, I think they should be black or white.
This sink is beautiful. I imagine having a room close to my garden where I can paint and work on projects.
I hope to have a cast iron bed one day. I'm on the hunt for one that will work. I also found one in the Sundance catalog that was nice and pricey. I want to find an old one that has been painted a few times and looks well loved.

Benner said he was going to look for tickets to fly down from Utah to go with us.
Benner and I love to go to Disneyland together because we get to act like big kids.
Our favorite ride to go on is the teacups.
He always lets me pick out my favorite color teacup.
Daniel is going to be sad about not going to Disneyland. We fell in love at Disneyland. Dan proposed to me outside the castle at Snow Whites wishing well. I was in shock. I wasn't expecting him to propose so it was very romantic. GO DAN.
I bet you are going to be super surprised to see me. I can't wait to take you on lots of walks and watch movies with you. I promise to get you a cup-of-soup for a special treat.
I'm so excited. I'm going to miss Daniel terribly but I can't wait to see my family and recharge my batteries. I'm also terribly excited about going to Salt Lake City to see Dan and Will read.
They are going to Utah State in Logan, Utah, to present papers. They have also set up a poetry reading in Salt Lake at Nobrow Coffee and Tea Company.
I can't wait.

Thoughtful Marjorie sent the sweetest note and cute little crafty buttons. I'm not a scrapbook er (she guessed that) and I am so excited to make them into push pins for my newish bulletin board. I'm still looking for the perfect vintage fabric or wallpaper to use as the background for my kitchen bulletin board. I think this will spice it up big time. Thanks for being such a great friend Marjorie. I feel like we are kindred spirits.

I hope to own an antique french chandelier one day. I would love to have one hanging over an old rustic dining room table.
I love most everything about this bathroom. The tub is too small though.
Oh, a girl can dream, cant she?

This is Dan's new grill. Chris and Martha brought over Beer Brats, cabbage salad and baked beans with turkey. Dan bought all kinds of hot dogs and tofu dogs for me. Suzanne and Neil brought baked beans and Genevieve and Scott brought a broccoli salad. I made Julie's salsa recipe (it was a hit), spice cake, and my Mommy's potato salad and deviled eggs.
We had a mini Easter egg hunt for the kids.
Gabby, Elise, Miles, Joey and Emma are super cute.
Joey found the super surprise egg. It was hiding behind a gnome.
Here I am with some of the special women in my life. Martha, Genevieve and Suzanne are all amazing and beautiful.
I wish I had taken a photo of the husbands. Sorry.
Thanks for coming over you guys.
