Scraps of Life

Life As a Scrapbooking Newlywed

SURPRISE!!

on August 18, 2012

Surprise parties are by far some of the most fun parties, especially when you actually pull it off like we did today for my cousin’s birthday. Her kids are awesome and did such a wonderful job planning and conspiring with friends that she was completely shocked and had a wonderful time. She totally deserved it!

On the way to this party, we stopped by a liquor store to pick up some beer/wine for said party and happened to come across some specialty wine we just had to have. Barry Larkin Merlot and Homer Bailey Chardonnay, on sale, two for cheaper than on normally costs. Since Barry Larkin is my favorite, we’re taking a chance I’ll actually enjoy this Merlot. At least we know dad likes it so it won’t go to waste.

But….I’m keeping the bottle for our baseball wall. That’s mine. 🙂

In completely other “news”, Baxter can be so funny. Our bedroom and dining room windows are set up to where if you are looking out one of the windows, you can look into the other room. So a right angle outside. It was gorgeous today, so we had the windows open and allowed Baxter to sit on the windowsill. Then we proceeded to go into the other room and he was confused as to how we were over there, meowing his cute little face off. Later today he waits to lick my fingers from the chips I snack on, as if we never feed him.

Tomorrow is youth Sunday, so my brother is playing/singing again. I’m loving that he’s getting out of his shell and sharing his talent with the church. Love. After church, we’re going to the Reds game with a bunch of church members for Faith Day, a sell out, complete with after-game concert from Mercy Me.
