I hesitate to put up pictures of myself because we all know we hate pictures of ourselves.  Anyway, last night was Grace Bible College's graduation banquet.  It was quite the affair.  The banquet room was overcrowded.  Several students shared their testimonies, which were amazing to hear.  They also gave away Starbucks' gift cards to students in several categories.  Who had the most guests there?  Who came the farthest to attend GBC?  Did you know that Alaska is farther away than Costa Rica?  We didn't until last night.  A student from Georgia won with 12 guests there, and there were more coming today for graduation. 

So, here we are whether I like the picture of myself or not!

We found a "new" place for amazing ice cream.  This is the small.  It cost $2.  If you want to know where we were, you'll have to get in our van and we'll take you there.  Our treat!

It was yummy!

A friend of ours will be refinishing the top of Gma Rumley's dining room table.  He will also be tightening up the legs (two wobble pretty badly).  These are the before pictures.

This is the table we will be using until the above one gets back.  We don't want it back until we move so we don't have to move it twice.  This will be a little tight, but it will work!

I'll show the finished table sometime next month!

Guess who was my lunch buddy today?  AND, your first three guesses don't count.

We found a "new" coffee shop called "The Bitter End."  The walls and ceilings are amazing - wood paneling.  I love the table lamps - maybe I should start a "new" collection (no more coolers and dressers, ha).

LOVE the look!   

It's back!

First there is this...

Then we have this!

This is a sure sign of crazy Michigan weather.  Both are pretty, but kind of crazy, huh?
