The Opera!

This morning we got to go to our first Opera! Elixir of Love was put on by the Asheville Lyric Opera and we had a great time! It was so fun to see the girls responses to the high sopranos and the funny tenor! Maggie was even lip syncing for while and it was just to cute! I will defiantly have to stay on top of their next performances. I was sad that I missed so many of their shows this year, but SO thankful that we have the opportunity for this in our area! Here are a few pics...the one of me taken by Heather! :)


Every once in awhile a friend from the FIAR board comes though town and Heather and I get to hang out for awhile in real life with some of our imaginary friends. This Friday Scarlett and her family were coming through for a family gathering and I was SO blessed to get to hang out with her and her family at the Nature Center and then to have some ladies time in the evening downtown! Needless to say we had a blast! Here are a few fun pics from out time together.

Garden update!

Well, I just wanted to show you what has come up from my seeds! I am very excited as it is all doing so well. The seeds inside are doing well. I had to take the zucchini out and move them outside! I don't quite know what I was thinking planting 36 of them, but there will be enough to share for sure! Outside my collards, swiss chard, garlic and lettuce are all doing great!

I am concerned as my neighbor has seen a ground hog in his yard, as well as a possum and raccoon! Last year the ground hog wiped out my garden, took it all the to ground in 1 night. I was SO sad! :( I am hoping we get this one before he discovers my greens!

Just wanted to update the progress! I am hoping to work on the bigger beds this weekend. I am also working on a stick fence entrance for the side of the house. I will post pics as I get it done!

Hope you all are enjoying spring!

We have had a great week! My Grandma (mom's mom) and my Aunt Jane (mom's oldest sister) came on Monday night to be with us for a few days. It was wonderful because Grandma just turned 88 this past week and I didn't get to the family birthday party, so we took her out to lunch. We always have such a great time together and the girls just LOVE to have them too. :) So this morning before they had to take off for Ohio I snapped a quick pic at the breakfast table.
