Party pup

Evan turned 25 last Saturday.  Sadly he was on tour for his big day, so I racked my brains trying to think of a way to celebrate him from thousands of miles away.  This is what happened:

 On Friday night, I stayed home and made party hats for Elton and me.  Who doesn't love a puppy in a party hat?!  I put some records on and took a lot of pictures and then at midnight I sent them Mr. Bovee's way.

And then something amazing happened. 

Elton apparently loves birthdays.  And I am no Barbra Streisand.

I can't wait to celebrate in person with Evan when he gets home, but this definitely made his day!  He comes home next weekend and I can't wait. Have the best weekend!

I have been trying a crack at gardening recently and let me tell you, I am the worst.  It doesn't come natural to me.  Plus I tend to over water my plants.  But I am changing my ways! Taking a stab, or shovel at it if you will.

I am nervous. I don't like to be held accountable for killing plants.

So far, I have planted some Ranunculus that have been blooming like crazy.  They are soon becoming my favorite flower.  So pretty!

Last Saturday, Lyndi came over and we planted a bit before it started raining buckets.  I have plans to build a raised rock bed and plant some cutting flowers.  ahhh!
