Meet the Boss

Did you see the show last night? Did you see Undercover Boss? If you did then you'll recognize the guy standing between DQ and Bruce as our cousin Michael. The other person in this picture taken at a family event last November is their Uncle Steve. Can you see the family resemblance?

I think it was a good show and very true to the person we know Michael to be. He is very focused on his company but he's also unfailingly generous and I think that came through.

Excitement over the show was huge this weekend but we managed to get a few other things done. The big theme was the deck. We ate out there Friday and Saturday night. It was glorious!


Saturday I hit a local nursery for seeds and seedlings. This summer our garden will include the usual green peppers, corn, zucchini, pumpkins, and tomatoes but we're also trying a few new things. We'll attempt to grow broccoli, brussels sprouts, potatoes and spinach. Stinkette and I made a big mess on the deck on Saturday afternoon planting some of the spinach in the planter boxes (you can just see it peeking out) and re-doing the strawberry planter. If we can just remember to water all out lovely plants then we ought to be eating well this summer.

So very cool! We caught the end of it, but he seemed like a super nice guy! :o)

The weather was beautiful here this weekend, too, but we didn't get to eat outside - YET!
