A little cabin update: electrical is FINISHED! Next up: bathroom so we have a place to go on our pilot camping trip at the end of May.

Now off to Disney Cruise with the family (28 of us!!) for a week then to Costa Rica on Wildtree‘s dime for another week! Life is good.

groff 04

Dani Groff. Isn’t she a cutie? And her pup, Mitzie (is that how you guys spell it? :/) We know her at SCLP as Little Girl. She was adopted last year and has quite the awesome family to take care of her! She’s a sweetie, but also enjoys her a good cat chase. (side note: Amy, Dani’s mom, received a sore shoulder and some lovely grass stains from an ‘incident’)

But back to Dani. Such a pretty little thing. She isn’t quite sure what she wants to do after graduation next Month, but one things for sure… she is a very modest artist. SO TALENTED. You should definitely do something with that. : )

studio 2016 01

So at first glance, the studio doesn’t maybe look much different to those who are frequent visitors. However, here’s a list of the stuff we’ve been doing in here the last few months:

added molding around the perimeter of my office and the floating wall

covered the entire TV wall with molding to add texture

painted everything with a fresh coat of white

cleaned all the windows (ugh. least favorite thing)

3 coats of black paint

cleaned the curtains

scrubbed the floors

purged all my crap hidden in the dark corners

cleared off my computer desktop to make room for Spring/Summer sessions!

We’re ready to rock and roll.

Now we should have a party, don’t you think?

We don’t think Arrow budged an inch the entire renovation.

d.todd 01

This little peanut is growing like a little weed. He was born in January and got to spend some quality time in the NICU before joining his fam at home, but he’s adjusting very well to life at casa de la Todd.

Not much to say about this very fun day… the images speak for themselves.

From the singing groomsmen to the Sarah’s bright pink hair.

Love you guys!

One note:  Thank you to Pandora. You played the perfect song at the perfect moment all. day.

She and Him is the best station.

Did you watch the Oscars last night??  I have some thoughts on how the production went…

First of all… I loved the little bubble that popped up to say who the heck some of the presenters were. I also liked the ‘So-and-so would like to thank the following people…’ that ran across the bottom. Next.. I LOVED the fashion. Like loved. Bravo ladies.  I disliked Chris Rock as host.  I prefer to think of him always as the donkey on Shrek. Who’s with me?

So WE watched the Oscars at the 4th annual fundraiser for Saunders County Lost Pets. So successful!

$6260 in funds raised that goes directly to the care of dogs and cats who reside at SCLP.

Thank YOU for making difference!

It was a costume party, of course… ‘Favorite character from a children’s movie’

How’d we do?

We hope you’ll join us next year,

costume theme: OLD SCHOOl PROM

oh boy…

Slow but sure… Ryan took a day off this week to get started for real out here… my office has relocated to our dining room table and it’s still kinda nice (for now). I can see it getting annoying REAL QUICK though.

Happy Saturday!
