Matt brought two birthday presents to my house yesterday and said one was from him and one was from Mr. Pants. He assured me that Mr. Pants thought for a really long time before picking out the gift.

What was it? I'll tell you. Peanut butter. Mr. Pants got me peanut butter for MY birthday. Because that dog is selfish and only buys gifts for his friends that he wants for himself.

But I love him so much.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:

Mr. Pants was sound asleep on my lap. And then I whispered "peanut butter."

Law school reunion in my back yard! I forgot to bring a baby. 

Roses from my yard.

We discovered this brick wall in Matt's kitchen during demo.
