Burns, Elopements, & Break-ins

Wow! What a weekend. Tom has been gone on a boys trip since Thursday. Since that time...I have burned my arm (second degree burn, ouch!), my sister Lexy told us that her and her boyfriend eloped to Las Vegas, and Tom's Geo Prism was broken into. When it rains it pours, doesn't it? I've decided that since no one is dead and that I still have a sense of humor...Life couldn't be much better. :)
P.S. Lexy would love an email or phone call from anyone who knows her. It is going to be a rough ride, but I know they will be fine in the end.

My domestic tendencies

Here are some pictures of my cute new kitchen. It is so big and there are so many possibilities for decorating now. That is good and bad, especially when I should be working. :) I painted the bird pictures in my kitchen's colors (brown, blue, and green). So crafty.

Bringing home the bacon...or fish

Tom & I went fishing on the 13th (ish) of September. When I say Tom & I went fishing...I mostly mean Tom went fishing and I read the rest of Breaking Dawn in the car. :) We both had a lot of fun in our respective elements. Tom caught this lovely rainbow trout in the Weber in an undisclosed location. We took the fish home and cooked it up with my Mom & Bill. What a catch! (Tom and the fish) :)

Good Morning Maxfield

Hi Everyone!
My great friend Brandon is in a band called Good Morning Maxfield. They are in a contest right now and it would be great if you could/would vote for them. They are really, really good. Out of 800 bands they are in the top 20. If they win they will get to play at the Austin City Limits concert with bands like Beck, Foo Fighters, Erykah Badhu, etc. You can vote once a day. If you want to get a daily reminder to vote just let me know and I will put your email address on the list. Thanks a bunch!
