Well, it didn't take long for cool things to happen to us when we moved to Middle TN! When we opened our bank account, I noticed they were having a drawing to attend an interview session with Dierks Bentley! We listen to country music and he's one of my favorite artists, so I filled out the form and WE WON!
The interview was held at the Country Music Hall of Fame and from the minute we walked in, we were treated like VIP's! There was a line of people waiting to get in, but we got to walk right by all of them, through the door, down the steps, to the FRONT ROW! It was awesome. The interview was 2 hours, with Dierks playing two songs during it. He is such a nice guy and so cute! After the interview, he was hopping on his bus to drive to Kansas City for his concert tonight.

Graduation Day

We spent last weekend celebrating our daughter's graduation from Kansas University.
This is the building where she attended her classes. Here we are at the reception following the Journalism graduation ceremony.

The day before, we got a little crazy decorating for her party. She wanted me to help her make huge cut out letters of "KU". After we had cut the letters out of cardboard, I mentioned how we had a great stencil from the leftovers.
Here's what we did with it and spray paint.
It was alot of fun!
This is the scene on Sunday when they held the outdoor ceremony for all graduates.You can never have too many pictures with celebrities - here they are with the Men's Basketball coach - Bill Self.
Peyton and her friends right before they walk through the campanile and the traditional "walk down the hill".
Like the cake says - WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!

Pocket-FULL Art

In the middle of constantly packing boxes, I did manage to finish Andi's pocket-full book. She used file folders as the base of her book. I covered the folder with this great aqua tissue paper.
This is the tag pulled out of the folder. The background is paper I made a few years ago at Art and Soul in Dallas in a class with Tracy Baustica.
Not sure you can see it well in the picture, but the sunflower theme flows over to the back of the page on the hats. These are playing cards I picked up on my trip to Europe in 2006. I love the simplicity of them. We're moving next week and I look forward to life returning to some kind of "normal".
