Hairs cut!

For the first time since my wedding (10/7/06) that I got a hair cut! Woo hoo! It is always super curly after I get it cut because they put lots of gel and stuff. But here it is!

Honeymoon V2

Round 2 of the USVI Honeymoon Photos.
The theme this time, creatures from St. Thomas and St. John.

Lizards - they were everywhere!

A SCORPION in our room! EEEK!

Some crazy cool caterpillar!

Jon's parents bought us this lovely bowl for our 1 year anniversary. Its tan and green and matches our dining room really well, so it is the centerpiece of our (messy) table. Throughout most of the last 2 months it has held about 1/2 a dozen little gourds. Apparently now, it holds cats. Our house seems to be full of really expensive cat beds.

And here is Scruffy again. He's continuing to adjust - quite well. We got him a big crate today, so tonight will be his first night inside - he's been in the garage each night so far.

This is our dog Scruffy.

We adopted Scruffy from the DeWitt County Animal Shelter on Friday. He is very frightened of the world, but he is warming up each hour. They found him as a stray, and he has been the shelter for the last month or so. The shelter says he's a Whippet/German Shepherd mix, but we don't buy it! He's definitely part German Shepherd, but we're guessing also part Pit Bulll. They think he is somewhere between 1 and 2 yrs old. He is so, so sweet and gentile. He is afraid of the cats. He loves running in the yard. He's only barked twice since we've had him! He is a bit afraid of being inside, but he's warming up to it - especially since it is so cold out!
They named him Scruffy, but we'll be keeping that name. Hopefully you'll be hearing more about Scruffy from now on!

Jon and I recently celebrated our one year wedding anniversary on October 7. Go us! To celebrate this occasion we took a Honeymoon trip to the US Virgin Islands. Let me share a few of my favorite photos from our trip!

Violence is wonderful.

Since it has been FOREVER since Jon or I have updated the blog, I thought I'd start today. My friend Grant has been bugging me to update, so I will make him be a part of the update.

This is what we do at work all day.

Hopefully more to come!
