Well Ronny decided to make me a boxed garden. We made it 8' x 3' and put by the fence in the backyard where it would get plenty of sun, but is shady enough some of the time so the plants won't get scorched.
Here is is after I finished planting....with a helper...who won't be able to dig in because we put chicken wire over the top and planted inbetween the holes. But for good measure until the plants get established, we did put a temporary fence around it to keep the digmaster out.
I planted regular tomatoes...
And carrots from seeds (my first seed experience so we'll see how this goes)...

To my friend…
I was talking to my great friend, Georgia, last night on the phone and we don’t keep in touch as often as we’d like. And unfortunately, she is no longer on facebook, so I just got her signed up to receiving my blog posts.
So Georgia, this is for you.
Georgia was my first roommate in college….ok, step back. First non-crazy roommate. I had an interesting first roommate – snake and all – for about two weeks, but she decided to move into another dorm. So about week after snake-lady left, a sweet little girl knocks on my door and asks if she could be my roommate. She looked normal and was in another sorority on campus, so I figured it couldn’t be too bad!
And it wasn’t. She was a great roomie, and our sorority houses were even neighbors, so we’d walk over and visit each other a lot. We had SO many fun memories in college….
We did some crazy things together and had a lot of fun….
Our fashion got better as we went through college…
You know what is so weird that I just noticed, Georgia? I’m always on the left of you and you’re always on the right? Huh, too funny!
Welcome to my blog and thanks for being such an awesome friend!!

Theta for a Lifetime
First, the gals of the 2004 pledge class (technically "new member class" - but we'll call it pledge), got together at the fabulous La Fiesta restaurant in Manhattan. I'm so thankful for this time together with these girls because the rest of the day was a blur and I didn't get to visit with everyone later.
My Theta family - the Royal Family!
Most of the '00s decade gals in attendance.
The chapter president picture - it was so great to have so many there!
That evening, we had a decade dinner with the '00s decade at Pat's in Aggieville. It was a great place to unwind and socialize with many great friends.
My wonderful friend and "twin", Melissa - check her out over at Chronicles of a Lipstick Cowgirl!
So great to see all of you sisters. Let's get together again before the 75th! To see more weekend pictures, you can look at my online album here.

My great weekend was full of wonderful conversations and memories with my Theta sisters and time with my husband and his family that I’ll blog about later in the week.
But the best part of going to Manhattan, KS (a little bit of heaven on earth) was seeing all the green and the feeling of spring!
