John's Latest Project

Here's John's latest project. He painted our formerly white and boring beanbag toss boards (corn hole boards for you Mid-westerners). The mascots are actually stickers. I was shocked to come home to this project under way in my living room, but overall very pleased with the result (no red paint on the carpet, phew)!

Happy Father's Day!

Hope that all of you dads had a very Happy Father's Day!

We've had a nice weekend. On Friday, we got together with two couples from our neighborhood for dinner, which was a lot of fun. Today, we met my parents and Jessy at $3 Cafe Jr. in Alpharetta for wings (my Dad's favorite) followed by homemade ice cream at our house (another favorite). Always great to see the fam :)

A month and a half in 500 words or less...

Here goes....My law firm hosted this quarter's firm outing at Andretti Racing. We raced go-carts and did a ropes course. I came in last in the go-cart race and received a trophy of the business end of a donkey, which reads "Dead Ass Last." Our Australian neighbors hosted ANZAC day, and though it poured rain, it was a ton of fun. We went to a Ben Harper concert with our neighbors, Shannon and Tracy. John purchased a staghorn fern which appears to be tickling him behind the ear (I'll be keeping an eye on that plant). We hosted a Mother's Day lunch and enjoyed visiting with my parents and using the new deck furniture. On Memorial Day weekend, my aunt, uncle, and their beautiful children came for a visit. They stayed with my parents, but everyone came over to our house for steak sandwiches and cornhole (beanbag toss). Oh, and pretty much everyone tried their hand at shooting John's various pellet guns off the back deck. We host a classy gathering :) This same weekend, our friend from law school, Seth, and his girlfriend whom we had not yet met, but loved, stayed with us for a couple days. More cornhole (beanbag toss), great conversations, fancy beers, and good food. Finally, the weekend before last, Johnny participated in his own go-cart race -- Laps for Life sponsored by one of the local Rotary Clubs (he's car #12 in the photos). John raced twice -- he came in 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Meanwhile, I spent all of that weekend preparing for a custody trial, and all of the following week in court. We had one marathon day of litigation lasting from 7:30 a.m. until 10:30 p.m.! So, I played catch up on sleep this past weekend and will be playing catch up at work this week. Last but not least, Jessy and Chris came over last night for taco salad and the Bachelorette!

Giant Lilies

This is just a quick post to replace that now tiresome yarn! Sorry I've been such a slack blogger lately. I basically had one busy weekend like a month and a half ago, and haven't updated since! I plan to rededicate myself, assuming I survive this trial week :)
