Growing Growing...

Planting Day:
1 Week Later:
2 Weeks Later:
And we have a garden...hopefully we have produce too! Hopefully a little more than one lonely extremely delicious tomato we got last year. This year we are hoping to add peppers and basil to the mix. No matter what happens, though, I'm enjoying tending to my little garden and watching it grow!

Sights and Colors of Philadelphia- Part 1 (Warning Picture overload!)

Roderick's brother had a business trip in Philadelphia the last week of school. We decided we would go up that weekend, since Philly is much closer than Colorado! Roderick studied in the car as I drove some of the way and ended up staying up quite late Friday night to finish his Hebrew Final. (Oh, the joys of school!) We were able to meet up with Jess Trach on Saturday and had a great time touring the beautiful city!

Ever heard of Groupon?

Groupon features one great deal every week day for approximately 50 cities around the US. (Denver, Charlotte, Portland, Jacksonville, Washington D.C, and New York City to name a few.) Typically the deal is 50% or more off of a restaurant, store, activity, etc. Deals are e-mailed every day and you choose whether or not to participate in that deal. You only get it if enough people choose to join in that day, otherwise your credit card is not charged. Its great if you are going on vacation to an area as well. The groupons are usually good for several months to a year. Lately they have been having great deals in our area. Friday it was a $50 Sonoma gift certificate for $25. (Somona is a REALLY nice Ruth Chris type restaurant in our area.) Today's deal is even better though $30 worth of dry cleaning at Zoots for $9 a 70% discount. You can do the deal up to 5 times. So you could potentially have $150 worth of dry cleaning for $45. Each $30 gift certificate must be used at one time. However, they can be combined, they are good at all Hampton Roads locations, and are good for 1 year.
Now I'm off to comfort a little 4 month old sweety that has the hiccups and is getting tired of them!
