Adam and I got cupcakes today, we haven't taken a bite but I am really looking forward to mine. I was so excited about a pistachio cupcake.

Pistachios are special to me they always make me think of my grandfather, he always had pistachios. The bright red ones that left stains on your fingers were rationed out every night during wheel of fortune.

I hope the cupcake is awesome.

So I had this post planned out last night, but taking benedryl before blogging results in a good night's sleep but no blog.

Oops! I was bound to miss a day at some point. I just figured it was going to be this next month when I am juggling work, beads and theatre.

Oh well!

Today I realized my favorite pair of tennis shoes was done. I ran two miles and have lots of blisters. But I love these shoes and they have treated me well, until today.

Plus I ran two miles today!

The corner of my eye

So this morning I was getting ready for the day and I see something large scurry across the floor. My first thought is, "cockroach."

I then spent the next five minutes trying to catch the little visitor, who was not a cockroach but a tiny lizard.

I was able to catch him and release him outside, I just hope he didn't end up being breakfast for the birds this morning.

Bunny therapy

I wish bunny therapy was a real thing, but since it is not here is a saying to keep in mind:

Alamo drafthouse

So I screwed up today and forgot to take a picture while we were at the movies today. This voucher has make up for that!

Our favorite movie theater is closing on June 25th so we went for one last movie (probably) today. The Alamo is the best theater I have ever been to, not only do they have good food and drinks but they have great preshows and special events.

I watched the Royal Wedding at the Alamo, we've gone to comedy shows and sing a longs and quote a longs. Adam has always loved going to Anime shows.

We still have an Alamo accessible to us but it is farther away and doesn't have the same memories. So this is a bittersweet post.

Alamo has shown us how great a movie experience can be!

Indoor flowers

I have been thinking about a necklace with "flowers" for a while. Today I sat down and just started working on these flowers.

These are not the only ones I made today but they are the ones that have been strung twice.

I am still not sure how the final project is going to turn out; but I love my indoor flowers.

Some days you need a bit of color!

Another game night?

Since Adam is still sick and is complaining about being on the couch we are trying to play some games.

But if Adam was writing this blog his picture today would be cough medicine.

Ashley and Andrew spent a number of days with us this week. They went home today but it was nice to have time with both of them.

Both Adam and I were shocked at how well Sterling did, he wasn't upset when I was holding Andrew.

We hope to see the whole family again soon!!!

I love that my husband is usually willing to try new things. I appreciate how he will try to understand my interests.

It it always nice when he tries something new and enjoys it.

Adam has actually been going to Yoga with me, even today when he wasn't feeling great.

If a tree falls in the forest...

First things first, I need to supply an answer for yesterday's post. The picture was taken at the museum at the new hall.

It is a piece of petrified wood. I was so amazed by the colors and would love to recreate the effect with a bead one day.

The picture was not taken yesterday and I almost missed making a post yesterday. I woke up at 11:54 PM and frantically had to come up with a post.

Today has been a little stressful but I woke up from a nap (are we seeing a pattern) to the sound of thunder.

I love thunderstorms! Adam and I used to sit and watch thunderstorms at Tech it always brings back wonderful memories.

I did my best to capture the moment.

Trying to find the good...

Today has been a very challenging day. I ended up getting an ASAP at work. This is always stressful, there is a lot of pressure associated with these cases and supervisors tend to hover.

I kept holding my bracelet and reminding myself that no matter how bad my day was going it was nothing compared to what the patient was going through.

I kept playing with my bracelet all day today and remembering making the beads. I got home and started to make dinner and the bracelet snapped.

Thankfully no beads were lost! This is my favorite bead I have ever made and it will be restrung onto another bracelet soon.

Transit of Venus

Adam and I went to a viewing party hosted by the museum. It was so hot we didn't stay for long, but I snagged a picture and we looked through a couple of telescopes.

So glad I married another nerd!

Seven little things

Here are seven little things that Adam does to make me smile and feel loved, he continues to do them even though I don't always say,"thank you."
We always tell each other happy 4th on the 4th of every month. We became a couple on November 4th 1998, we had been dating for a few months before that but I wasn't ready to call Adam my boyfriend until then. The 4th has always been a very special day for us.
Adam always cleans my eye glasses when he washes his own.
He makes the bed before we go to sleep.
He knows how to deal with my migraines, which is amazing to me because often times I am unable to communicate what I need at the time.
He takes Sterling out in the evening. When Adam leaves town he always reminds me that I have to let Sterling out, since he takes care of him after I go to bed.
He send me "good morning" E-mails
During the week he always calls me once a day even if it is just to say; "I love you."

Sterling Sunday

Sterling sometimes holds his mickey, "the dangerous way.". He attempts to navigate through the house while he can't see. He loves his Mickey!
