The Snake Charmer

We just got home from riding the 4-wheeler when Brandon jumped off and started chasing something... Sure enough, he rolled out from under the trailer with this little sucker. It's a speckled king snake.It was beautiful and turned out to be quite docile.
...didn't even try biting him. :)

My New Garden!

So I've been waiting til I was done with school before I trying to plant a garden! So the time has finally come! Brandon tilled the ground where we're going to plant! I think his tractor's sexy :)

We've got yellow squash, cucumber, and bell peppers.

We thought we'd try out some watermelon too! :) Oh, and we also got some basil. Hopefully everything turns out yummy!

While we were at Ole Time Feed buying our plants, we got some new baby chicks . They were on sale :) Buy a bag of starter feed (which we had to do anyway) and get 10 baby chicks free! Pretty awesome.

And just in case you haven't seen our new goat, Slick Willy, here's a pic.

Celebrating Early

It's been a busy weekend! Graduation, shopping, crawfish boil, and birthday celebration! I'm turning 23 on Tuesday, the 19th but we always celebrate the Sunday before at Brandon's MawMaw and PawPaw's house. His MawMaw made carrot cake for me and it was awesome! Here a couple of pics.


So I've finally GRADUATED! Yay! No more stressing over homework or exams! No more waking up at 6am (at least on a daily basis)! No more crazy professors! I'm just thrilled to pieces!!! I never thought this day would come; it seemed like it never would. But I can finally hold my offical degree in my hand at last! However, like the 9o% of college graduates who don't choose a career that puts their degree to work, I too will not be using my expertise in Nutrition. I am offically a software developer! Haha. A bit odd how that worked out, but that's life. Anyway, here are a few pics from graduation. These are from Ms. Kim's camera. I'll have more when Wendy emails the other pics to me. :)
Me while I was waiting to walk on stage to get my dipolma! Suprisingly enough, they said my whole name correctly!

Buster has a new home

So the little raccoon (Buster) Brandon found a couple of days ago has been relocated. He was the cutest, sweetest little thing, but he absolutely refused to take a bottle. We tried everything we could think of to try to get him to eat, but he just wouldn't take. Brandon and I decided this morning that we weren't experienced enough to work with him, so Brandon brought him to a wildlife rehabilitation specialist over in Livingston. There, he'll be taught how to re-enter the wild once he's old enough! Thank heavens for wildlife lovers!

McTingle Farm = Animal Refuge

So apparently, our house is a refuge for animals... Brandon came home from work yesterday to find this lil' critter on our driveway!
