Last night we went to a chinese buffet that a guy at my work said was just incredible. And it sure was yummy. It had all you can eat snow crab among other very scrumptious things! Here is my crab eating my chicken. (And check out the yummy crab cheese wonton-they were huge.)


These pictures may not be suitable for those with weak stomachs-lol. This is a lesson for everyone to make sure they wear good socks when playing basketball-avoid the blisters! (by the way this is Thaddeus's feet not mine Melissa)


These are our lovely neighbor's Thaddeus likes to feed!

It's not that bad

Just so I didn't freak any body out about not moving here or coming to visit , the previous picture is not from Minnesota, just some random pic I found. It is cold but definitely not to that extent. The other day I found these kind of cool magnets at Target so I thought I would share them with you all. They are kind of girly but hey, I thought they were cool . I sent some to a few of you so I hope you enjoy. Well I love you all and hope you are all doing well.


Hey guys I am proud to say that we finally have the internet at our apartment. Yeahhhhhhhhh , we hooked it up last night and it is working beautifully. I am also proud to say I passed my sixth month review so yeah I get a raise. It's only 10 cents but hey every little bits helps. I had the day off today and am not really up to much. basically staying inside to avoid the cold. Tomorrow the high is supposed to be 0. Yes that is right the high is 0!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH I am ready for summer! At least it is not as cold as the above picture.

Valentine's Day

Look how sweet, this is what my hubby got me for V-Day even though I told him not to get me anything. Beautiful roses(from Menards of course) hehe and a beautiful card, sorry it is private. But I thought you would like to see the beautiful roses. We had a good weekend just hanging out. Thaddeus did a bunch of hoemwork and I wrote some cards. I hope everyone has a great day. This weekend is supposed to be right around zero or below ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the cold just may hit us finally .

yes that is right folks we went bowling last night and I bowled out of my head and got a 170, yes that is right a 170. It was amazing and actually if I would have gotten an easy spare in the 10th I would have gotten another shot and ended up with approximately a 180. It was so so much fun. The weather here is chilly but not out of control all though I see next weekend is supposed to be in the single digits ahhhhhhhh.

Just to let everyone know we have some very good news to share, nonononnononnono not a baby-lol wouldn't that be funny! Anywho Thaddeus got a really great fellowship ( what everyone else calls internship) for the summer and it pays. Yeahhhhhhhhhh, this is such a answer to prayer and he is very excited. It is called the Blackstone fellowship and it is with the Alliance Defense Fund. I am sure he will share more with you about it later. Well I best be going but I will be sure to share some pics with ya' all hehe tomorrow.

Well I just thought I would write and give a big shout out to everyone! How is everyone doing? Life here is going good. It is a little on the chilly side but not unbearable. I had the day off today and was pretty lazy. I added the pictures of the flowers above because I always think blogs are much more fun to look at with pictures. I had to work this past weekend but thankfully my boss let me off a little early for the superbowl. It was a lot of fun. We went over to Thaddeus's friend from the law school, Garrett's house. It is really fun to hang out with him and his wife Lisa. I don't have a lot to share. Work is going well and busy.
-one little rant I will go on, remember when you shop at a retail store even if you are buying something remember that the person there is a human being with feelings and doesn't deserve to get screamed at and treated like they are a ant on the ground-thank you!
lol, anywho hope everyone is doing well, we love and miss you all!

I am so clumsy!

This picture would definitly be a representation on the reason not to drive while attempting to dip and eat chicken fingers with honey mustard sauce (don't worry I did not take this pic while driving, I wiped off the sauce and then took this when I got home).

Yet more proof of my clumsiness, this woudl be tomato sauce while I was cooking dinner(good thing it matches my red shirt).

Hope everyone is having a great day. I had the day off today and have been lazy. I am now off to the gym to meet up with Thaddeus. I need to work off all my couch potatoness for the day.


What happened to the beautiful sign of melting? So I took this picture yesterday and then heard on the news that starting next week it is going to get cold here and I mean really cold. BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
