Kevin and I went on a bike ride today, went all the way to Julia Davis Park and back! We're thinking of biking in from Lucky Peak in a couple weeks. It's downhill, then all flat, so the 16 miles should be easy ones.
I forgot to mention (since this is like a record of my life for 2014) that we had dinner at Karen's house last night (officiant of the wedding). It was a lot of fun :)

I just started going through wedding photos today (I have been so busy, I haven't been able to) but I had to stop. For some reason, it really hit me hard today that Brad wasn't at the wedding. I've had the same cover photo on Facebook, our last family photo with all of my immediate family members, since a few days after Brad died and I haven't been able to bring myself to change it, until today. It just about killed me to do it, and I couldn't look at photos after that. For some reason, that just really got me. I know it's just stupid Facebook, but I felt like I'm somehow betraying my brother's memory when I changed it. I know Brad wouldn't care, but it was just a way I held on, I guess.

We made pasta today!! We got a pasta roller for our wedding and we made homemade fettucine alfredo for Kevin's mom's birthday today! It turned out quite well, if I do say so myself. I also made creme brulee for dessert, which turned out pretty good too. Happy birthday, Connie!
My desk (I'm apparently working on holding my camera straight). I need to figure out what I'm going to do with my "craft corner." It used to be a craft bin but it's kind of exploding. The two boxes with green lids are full of my work stuff that is going to work as soon as I have a desk there (it may be awhile):
Master closet (ignore the mess):

We were THOSE people in Costco today. The people who buy 9 containers of strawberries and nothing else. They were on sale, okay? And we (mostly I, actually) use a LOT of frozen strawberries through the winter. So we're using our awesome Foodsaver to seal 'em up and freeze 'em. We're also making some freezer jam.
Tonight we went to a meetup at a coffee shop near us for people who play board games. It was pretty fun! Not as much fun as playing with our friends Matt & Sara, though. :'(
