Noodles, a 4'x4' oil on canvas
I got my letter this week telling me that I had been accepted as a graduate student at Miami University, and today I received news that I had also been granted a graduate assistantship, so needless to say, I'm feeling pretty psyched right now. Now to enjoy the next 4 1/2 months, because I am going to be one busy lady with full time classes and 20 hours of teaching and/or researching. I am so excited and looking forward to it (for those of you who don't know me, I'm a confirmed nerd).
I've made a few changes to the site (again)...I have further subdivided the recipe indexes to make it easier to find the right recipe. If you have a favorite recipe that you would like to share, send me the recipe, any photos you have, and why it is a favorite and I'll post it as a "Friend and Family Favorite." Once I get a few of these, I'll add a tab to highlight these as their own collection.
You may also notice a new tab up at the top entitled "Nicole's Art." Nicole, my oldest, is a studio art major at Miami University. I used to think I was pretty talented, but this girl puts anything I ever did to shame. She is just starting to get some of her work up online, but there is more than enough to demonstrate how extraordinarily talented she is, and to boot, she's an amazingly good student. Have a look and leave some good words for her...
Also in the works is a tab for my middle child. Matthew is an incredible musician who will one day take the music world by storm. He has to do that whole high school thing, but then he plans to attend Miami as a music major (yes, we are true Miamians, Ben and I got our undergrads there as well). Matt is the drummer in a band called Chasing Aislin, and they play some pretty intense metal. Once the band's site has more music up, and hopefully the demo they are working on, I'll share this child with you too.
Chris is only 10, so no web sites from him, but rest assured, this scary smart kid will one day rule the world. Thanks for humoring me while I brag about my children and have a wonderful Easter.
