Happy Birthday Daddy

Yesterday was my dad's birthday. He is a man that I respect more than any other. He has taught me how to have integrity, how to work hard, and how to live a life that is Christ-like. I am so proud of him and all that he has accomplished in his life. Even though he turned *cough cough* years old yesterday, he is still the biggest kid I've ever known. Here are some pictures of my family...Happy Birthday Pops :) I love you.

Things I've Made (Cont'd)

This summer my friend Emily and I have taken on several furniture projects, and this little dresser is one of them. I wish I would've taken a picture before we renovated it, but I just didn't. Anyway, this is a dresser from Ikea that I've had for years and it needed a little TLC. Emily and I sanded and painted it, and then most importantly, knobbed it! We took off the old knobs and replaced them with mismatching new ones that coordinated with my room. I hope you can see them from the picture, they're really cute.

Things I've Made

This is a picture of the bedding I made for my dorm room this year. My roommate (Belinda) and I decided to put my Singer sewing machine to some use and make matching sets of bedding. After 21 hours of sewing and 3 trips to Jo-Anns, we had created 2 twin duvet covers and 14 pillows :) This summer we will make another set of bedding for our new apartment, this project will also known as: Bedding Endeavor #2.

I have recently become employed at Starbucks. I know, I've become a sell-out to corporate coffee, but I really needed a job. I actually work at the same location as my little brother, Greyson. He is basically the cutest and friendliest barista you will ever receive a cup of coffee from. We have a lot of fun working together! We work at a drive-thru/walk-up location in H.B, where the sun always shines and the coffee is always fresh :)
This is a picture of Greyson outside our work.

Fiddler on the Roof

So this is definitely a little overdue, but better late than never! This is a picture of my dear boyfriend Chad, as the star in "Fiddler on the Roof" (that's why he looks like an old man). He played the role of Tevya, and did an AMAZING job! I am so proud of him :)
