My friend Ben and I caught a few beauty catfish at Bensen Marina a couple days ago. May you enjoy looking as much as I enjoyed catching :) -nate

a little help?

A good friend of ours is getting married on Thursday and we are drawing a serious blank on a wedding gift --don't worry, I'm POSITIVE he doesn't read our blog :)--! They are registered at BBB, but I wasn't excited about anything that wasn't already purchased for them. So, if you would be ever so kind as to share your favorite wedding gift, that you received, or that you love to give (and please keep it clean! :) ) it would really help us out!

birthday boy

(Our camera takes horrible pictures, this is so dark!)

We celebrated Nate's 26th birthday on Friday, it was a little stressful, and a lot of fun!

Stressful because I decided to make dinner (which I RARELY do) and a cake, and didn't really have time to complete them both, let alone clean the house, wrap his gifts (one of which didn't get here until today), write him a thoughtful birthday card, or study for my finals...

Fun because he really liked the Clam Chowder (and so did I, minus the clams), the cake looked pretty nice, even though it wasn't the best, he was surprised/excited with the backpacking hammock I got him, and we got to go see the movie Hanna with his parents. ...and because he's just a good husband and even though he doesn't normally fold the laundry or make the bed, he did both of those things because he knew I had really wanted to get them done before he got home... it made me feel really guilty for a minute, but then I just decided it's okay that he is the sweetest husband I could ever ask for!

We're getting excited to go camping soon!! His new backpack came today, so hopefully we'll be off to break it in soon too!
