A China Cabinet in my Bedroom?

No I did not photoshop that china cabinet into my bedroom. Luke's parents gave us this very beautiful piece of furniture, and we picked it up the weekend we were in Jackson. As we were bringing it up the stairs at 11 that night, Luke announces that it needs to go into our bedroom. I am like, "Why in the world would anyone put a China cabinet in a bedroom?" Luke says we have nice China, and I am going to throw it all away unless we display it. I tell him that people that live in apts usually don't display their nice China, but he is not budging. I decide I can't win every battle, so our China is now proudly displayed in our bedroom. I must admit it is fun to look at, but the only downfall is it covers the window so I can sleep for hours....Not to mention it is a FIRE HAZARD! But Luke is happy, and I get to look at my nice things every morning when I wake up. Such is life. I was so excited to see Heather while we were in Jackson. I got to meet Sophie, Bandit's girlfriend (he DID get a Valentine from her), and it was so wonderful to see Heather's sweet face. I don't realize how much I miss everyone until I see them! My friends April and Amanda both rode extremely well, and April won her class.Be looking for us in upcoming issues of Southern Horseman. I think they made me catch the horse bug again. I haven't shown since my freshman year of college, and I miss it so much! Not even the showing, just being on a horse. It was fun to live vicariously through them for a weekend.My mom, Mr. Harold, and Tracey: Last week Luke was in Houston from Wednesday through Monday, so I went for the weekend. It is such a huge city, and we enjoyed as much of it as we could fit in. We ate at P.F. Chang's (and Marble Slab!), and I got to shop at Forever 21. We also went to this store called IKEA, which we don't have in Memphis (or Tyler!). It is like Costco, but it is full of housewares. And it is two stories. I just walked around in a stupor b/c there was so much to look at. Such a perfect weekend! We also visited the Museum of Natural Science and were able to hang out with Ryan and Brock, two of Luke's fraternity brothers. It is so fun to explore new cities! On Monday night, Luke and I went to eat at a couple from our Sunday School class' house. They are so sweet and we really enjoy their company. Well, they don't have any kids, and obviously we don't either, so they really wanted us to bring Bandit. I tried to tell them that he has little man syndrome and doesn't get along well with others, but they insisted. Of course, they have a well mannered Sheltie who stops and goes on command, and Bandit was all over the place. He stole all of her toys, her food, her treats, and bit her repeatedly. Luke made a great observation,"Well, at least we know what it's like to have the bad kid!" Being the loving mother that I am,I made excuses, blaming Bandit's behavior on the fact that he is used to playing with our outside dogs at home, and they play rough. Oh well, at least he can do a pirouette.

Hey, Amanda! I know what it is like having the bad child/dog. Everytime we take Wilson somewhere he acts CRAZY, but he is so sane when it is just us. Sophie must be a huge FLIRT because Wilson got a Valentine too! Hope you're having a great week! Love- Ashley Benjamin

I think Sophie might be a little "loose" as my mom would say. :)
Ashley, start a blog today so when Ivy Kate gets here I can keep up! Glad to know I am not the only one with a bad dog!
