monthly photo roundup | may 2011

May was one of those months where nothing really huge happened (well, after we got our power back). Instead, life consisted of lots of little things (and a lot of catching up) that amounted to a very busy, but very fun and productive time.

May's photo roundup is a collection of happy little things. :) 

Some highlights:
  •  Starting the month off without power because of the tornadoes, but getting it back fairly quickly.
  • The internet took longer to come back, so I still went to Sam's every day to use their wifi.
  • I got Darren hooked on Angry Birds on his Droid.
  • Juice's annual concert at Bridge Street. It feels like summer really starts after this event. :)
  • My first Chinese takeout. I know!!!
  • A week (and a weekend) working in Boston to put in an emergency software fix. We won't discus the comp time fiasco.
  • My luggage was destroyed on the way to Boston, so I'm now the proud owner of an indestructible Pelican carry-on, delivered next-day thanks to Amazon Prime.
  • Back to shooting football games, just for the fun of it.
  • The Crash-Plan backup is finally in place, and I love it!
  • Lunches and dinners out thanks to Groupon and Living Social. We're really enjoying these discounts!
  • I finally got to talk about the book I'll be in this August!
  • Wandering through the Botanical Gardens just so I can play with the camera.
  • Running the Cotton Row 5K with my personal best time ever (28:51)!!
  • Buying new scrapbook goodies, including a super-awesome mystery box from Sassafras!
  • Installing a micro-irrigation system (kind of like Legos for adults) in the flower beds.
  • Enjoying all the fruit that's finally in season at Sam's Club.
Here's looking forward to June's roundup!
