Odds and Ends

While away on my Austin/Oklahoma adventure, Jake kept telling me he had some surprises for me. My mind wandered to a few different things, only letting it settle on the "big thing" I've been wanting for the entire history of our marriage for a moment because the odds were slim to none as we are still in the poor college kids phase of life. For a week I wondered pretty idea-less. I came home, took one quick glance around...

And there "it" was - a beautiful KitchenAid stand mixer in ice blue.

My heart started beating fast and I ran over to it and caressed it's lovely retro styling. After takin a moment to let it all sink in, Jake asked if I was ready for my second surprise. Of course I was, surprises are one of my very favorite things.

He took me to our bedroom door and told me close my eyes.

Fear not, this is G-rated.

I did just that, and he led me over to the bed and had me lie down. He turned out the light and told me to open my eyes. I opened them to a sky full of stars. He put glow in the dark stars on the ceiling above our bed. I have an affinity for such things, and a very particular type. They must be flat - those thick plastic ones simply don't feed my fancy.

I have loved enjoying these two surprises. I've made so many yummy things already, including 6 loaves of bread and 2 chocolate cakes.

I love Jake. He fills my world with magic.
