back-up hard drive = critical investment

Well Mike's computer's hard drive crashed! UGH! Not to mention that ALL of our pictures were saved on Mike's computer, BUT our wedding guest list, wedding invite, and a variety of other wedding stuff was on it. BLEH! The good news is that Mike was pretty good at backing up our pictures on CD's up until we moved to Maryland. But our wedding guest list?? Not going to lie...that pretty much stinks. AND we've been so good about recycling and not wasting paper by printing un-necessary stuff, so I never printed a hard copy. So, we are buying a detachable back-up hard drive and we will be backing up once a week from now on!!!

Other than the above drama, life has been without drama! I've been doing quite a bit of running and hiking. Work is going good for Mike...he's enjoying his job. Work is going good for me as well...I'm looking forward to working from the Lincoln office next week.

We are headed to visit Nebraska on May 31st and will be leaving on June 14th. Very excited to see everyone!

Feliz Cumpleanos to me! Happy Cinco de Mayo to everyone else!

Today is my 28th birthday! Let's take a peek at how I'm spending the day.
Besides working today, this is what I have enjoyed:

First of all, I received tons of birthday wishes via email, cards, Facebook messages, gifts, texts, and phone calls! I feel awefully special!! THANKS EVERYONE!! I think I received about 10 e-cards from just one person (not naming names...JEN!)...ok I think it was more like 3 or 4 e-cards from her but they were nice surprises throughout the working day!

Mike and I went out to dinner last Friday --- I was trying to do the "red carpet look over the shoulder" pose...good thing I'm not on the red carpet because I don't think I pull it off. :)
On Friday, Mike got me this yummy giant frosted cookie, which I single handedly finished off by Monday! Yum! I couldn't even wait to get home to try it if you see the small piece on the right side missing?!?
We got our new pans delivered today. Aren't they lovely? Can't wait to use them. Although these weren't a birthday gift, it was still fun to pretend they were a gift as I opened the boxes.

I received these flower bouquet's! I got the bouquet on the right from Mike on Friday and I received the other one today. And the first thing Mike did was sit them next to each and say "Ha, mine's bigger!" :) Sorry Em! :) I love them both!
And I'm finishing up my birthday by watching TV(Mike is at work tonight) and working on this bottle of wine. Not too shabby of a birthday if you ask me.
Thanks again to everyone! It's been a great day!
