My New Look!

I am back from my birthday festivities and camping and I have a new look! I am so excited about my blog design done by Casey from Blue Star Blogs did an amazing job.
My birthday was wonderful. My mom surprised me with a turquoise Kitchenaid Mixer and I was ecstatic. When Mr. P and I registered I really wanted to register for it but I had my Mom's old Kitchenaid from when she had upgraded. Hers worked perfectly well, despite being 25 years old, and I felt it would be silly to get another one when I had a perfectly fine one at home. My Mom knew how much I wanted the turquoise one and surprised me. Now the old one can go to my sister. I was SOOOO surprised. I haven't been that surprised by a present since I was 8 and my mom got me an American Girl Doll. It is so beautiful sitting on my kitchen counter I can't wait to use it.

Camping was wonderful. Here are some pics of the weekend.

Diamond Lake where we go camping every year

Mr. P and I at Crater Lake (it's 20 miles from our camp ground so we took an afternoon trip)

Lauren and I at Crater Lake

Crater Lake in all it's glory


  1. I don't know which blue I like better--your new KitchenAid mixer or the waters of Crater Lake! : )

    Glad to have you back, Laura!
