Yesterday was Dad's 60th B-day party, a nice gathering with family friends at the family home with some wine, cheese, yummy dips, and of course, B-Day cake.

B-Day Cake

One thing I have to comment on ... Mom found this great place downtown that makes edible flower arrangements - out of fruit! Here's the one we had for Dad's party:

Fruit Arrangement

And ... there are tons more on the website here:

Gorgeous, yummy, I'll have to remember these for future parties and soirees!

Also, Jason and I (with the help of Joe and his truck) picked up a table and 8 chairs today that I found advertised on Craigslist. I'm so excited. There's an insert that makes the table square (and seats 8). They're a little rough in a few spots, but with my handy-hubby, we should be able to smooth them out. It is so worth it, because we got the table SOOOOO cheap! SO EXCITING!

Hi Lisa,
I just finished my first year of law at U of C and thought I'd send you a little note. I know at least a few of us that read your blog regularly. I hope you do get the transfer, as we like you already! Don't worry too much that you haven't been offered a place yet. From reading your blog all year, and considering one of our prof's (Watson-Hamilton) lists your blog as a reference on her web page, I think you have a very good chance of being offered a place.
The school is also a mess right now with the renovations, and since U of C is accepting 100 1st years in Sept I bet they are behind with the offers for 1st year too.
We haven't picked classes yet (the selections aren't even posted yet) and it may be a bit of a mess at the beginning of the year. Apparently they will be posted in July sometime... *Hopefully* the renovations will be done by the time school starts, however there was talk about having to hold at least some of the upper year classes at night as some of our classrooms might not be done for Sept.
I’d be happy to chat with you more and some of the law students will be getting together in the next few weeks, but I don’t want to leave my e-mail on here. Anyway to post privately?
Anyway, if I don’t talk to you before then, good luck with the offer and I hope we see you in September!

OMG - your message makes me feel so much better! Put a huge grin on my face (especially on a day when I had to get a coffee, when I've been trying to wean myself). You can contact me @

Look forward to hearing from you!!!
