Locks of love

During my recent visit in MN, I decided to look for a hair salon for a long needed hair cut. I was happy to know that the salon would accept my hair for donation. I've been wanting to donate my hair to Locks of Love for a long time now but was not able to since some salons do not accept colored hair. But I guess they are being more lenient about it now. So... SNIP! All 8" of it...!

New baby Michael

I should probably start out by clarifying that baby Michael is not mine! My sister, Corina and proud dad Scott are happy to announce the arrival of new baby Michael Lee Bradford on January 1, 2008 at 2:08pm. He's a healthy boy at 8lbs 10oz!

First Year Annivesary!

Jan 6, 2008... wow, we made it! It's our one year wedding anniversary today :-) As for pressies, I embroidered the word "Love" in Chinese (since we met in Beijing) on a set of pillow cases. I guess the tradition now would be embroidering the word "Love" in a different language for each additional year. I also created a custom frame for one of our favorite wedding pictures. It's a combination of dead tree limbs from the backyard, tied with hemp strings and then hung on our towel handle in the bathroom. Pretty creative I would say! Or... too much HGTV! Other than that, we didn't go too crazy. The usual golf on Saturday and Sunday. We had Mexican tonight at a local restaurant and last night, we had homemade lasagna. After dinner last night, we did spend a couple hours in the backyard recycling our Christmas tree in our chimenea.

That was quite fun - smelling the pine as it burnt and listening to it crackle and also watching the pine needles engulf into flames!!! Video footage provided by Bobby Pridgen :-)

Happy New Year!

Well... another new year's eve where both Bob and I were not able to stay up until midnight. We must be getting old! We decided to stay in,.. had Shepard's pie for dinner and lit up the new Chimenea we had recently bought in Giddings, TX (on our way to Austin last weekend).
And good news today!! I'm now officially an aunt. My sister, Corina gave birth to a healthy 8 lbs 10oz baby boy today at 2:08pm - Michael Lee Bradford. I will be visiting them next week in MN. Will post some pictures then.
