My boss' wife Kathy makes pottery and sells it at the shop. As a graduation/wedding present, she made me fleur de lis dishes. The fleur de lis has been Alex and I's thing since we got married in New Orleans (not because we are Saints fans and/or Boy Scouts!). She gave them to me last night and I am just in love with them, so I had to share! I'm trying to get her to sell her work on Etsy! Shouldn't she?!

All We Really Need is Guinness

But just in case we want to do something else on our extensive Irish vacation, I've started to play travel agent, my true calling in life! Fortunately, or unfortunately, (I don't know which) I have compiled a list of almost 40 places to hit on our road trip. Now, to cross some of the list and decide where to stay!

While A is roaming the Afghan-land and counting down the seconds until his return...

I FINISHED MY THESIS!! It took a little longer than I originally anticipated, but it's done. Turned into my advisor. Now I'm just waiting to hear back from her and my committee.. Only the defense left! More importantly however, I got to see and play with baby Reid again (and Brad and Anna of course)...

..and play with my adorable nieces!
