Find out all our Family's Birthdays

This project is one that I've been working on since I started this blog. Well, I finally finished it and made a calender, so hopefully I'll be better about sending out birthday cards this year!

Make A Wedding Scrapbook

I know, I know... it's been a while. I made this scrapbook a few months ago to document our wedding day. It is from, and I love it!

Go Fruit Picking

The reason that we made the trip down to Southern Indiana in the first place was to visit Huber Orchard & Winery. Phillip had been there when he worked for the Department of Agriculture, and he has been talking about making the trip back down ever since. They have a great selection of U-pick-it fruits & veggies, including grapes, blackberries, raspberries, apples, tomatoes & peppers. We picked apples, took a tour of the wine cellars, tasted a few wines, and visited the great market that they have. We left with the car loaded down with apples, wine and other goodies that we can't wait to try!

Drink a Mint Julep

While we were in the home of the Derby, I thought that I had to check this Kentucky task off my list!

Go to a Cultural Festival

While we were in Southern Indiana/Louisville this weekend, I checked three tasks off in one day! Just outside of our hotel, Worldfest Louisville was taking place. Worldfest was a celebration of the diversity of Louisville, and it centers around a very large naturalization ceremony for new US citizens. We stopped by after dinner to grab a few snacks (sno cones & cotton candy!)

Make a Tiered Cake

This was my first tiered cake that I have ever made, and I'll have to say that it was just as hard to get right as I thought it would be. It turned out great, though, and the birthday girl loved it. I made the Dora and Boots faces out of gumpaste, and I was really happy with them. I will have to try stacking cakes again!

See An Exhibit At IMA

This Friday, Hannah & I made a rainy day visit to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. I can't believe that I had this museum within walking distance of my house and I had never been. We saw a special exhibit on florals in fashion, and it was great!
We then viewed the regular collection, which contained some wonderful pieces as well.

Visit a Zoo

Last Sunday, my lovely sister-in-law-to-be had a request. Let's go to the zoo! I was happy to oblige, and we dragged the guys along with us.

The requirement for the day that I had was that everyone choose their favorite animal and get a picture with it.
For me it was the flamingos:
Phillip was a big fan of this grizzly bear that was playing in the water:
Hannah was in love with this baby elephant:
AJ chose the giraffes:

Decide What My Favorite Song Is

We have a winner! I decided to go through my iTunes and find out what artist that I had the most songs by, and then decide on my favorite one. Why did I have so much trouble with this?! It was so easy once I thought about it. My favorite song ever is: "Sweet Baby James" by James Taylor. It reminds me of my childhood listening to James Taylor tapes in my mom's van. I've gone to a few James Taylor concerts over the years and this is always the song that I wait to hear. It's the best!

Play Frisbee with Matt

My friend Matt loves Frisbee. He breathes Frisbee. He spent the week in Rushville last week, and was so disappointed in my parents' Frisbee arsenal that he had to venture a trip to the local Walmart to get a new one. He always tries to get me to play with him, but because of my apparent lack of catching ability, I generally avoid it.

To prove I played this week with Matt:
