Lots of firsts for our first born this weekend.


We started off the weekend on Friday night by convincing him to wear underwear to bed because he is a big boy and we knew that he could do it! Sure enough, he did it and stayed dry all weekend. At just a little over 3, I am so proud of him for taking on potty training himself and accomplishing everything we ask of him.


Second, was his first college football game. We took him to the Purdue spring game on Saturday and he loved it! Ok, so he might have been more interested in the band but he still had a great time.


Third, this one was a big deal in our house, little mister tried his first oyster. He has always been around a lot of seafood since he was little but we’ve been cautious about letting him try oysters and other bivalves.

Made for a great weekend! We have a couple more fun weekends coming up., look for more in the next couple of weeks!

We goofed off at the hotel.
We complained to Purdue that we couldn’t get into the bro’s graduation. (We are all alums too.)
We watched graduation from a remote location.(Fowler Hall)
We celebrated at Harry’s.
I got a picture with Robbie Hummel.
We went to a baseball game.
We bet on the Preakness.
We all went home.
The end.

A couple of weeks ago I posted pictures of our new house on Facebook for my friends and family back home to see. One question I got was, “Can you tell you are Purdue grads by your house?”

Yes, you can tell we are Purdue grads by looking at our house! Here are a few pictures to prove it.

This picture hangs in our kitchen and reminds us of all of the places on campus that we saw every single day. This was a Christmas present from one of my brothers when I graduated from college. One of the best and I am so happy that we have a special place for this picture.

Purdue candle that sits on the kitchen counter.

This was something that we received from the Purdue Alumni Association. We wanted someplace fun to hang this and the garage cabinets just seemed to fit. It is a great reminder every time we come home of where we met.

This would be one of a couple of Purdue blankets that are in our living room. Yes this is one of my favorites because it has the train on it!

What do you think? Can you tell we are Boilermakers?

Boiler up!
