The Nadalet Family

Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.

Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

Shows, Plants, & a Truck

Life has been pretty crazy over here in the Nadalet household. We celebrated our first mother's day together (no, not as a mother) by going to the Nadalet Seniors for brunch. Glenn made a cornbread and stuff fritata, very tasty! And we had mimosas with prosecco! woo!

The day before was Matthew's first "show" as a vendor/showman (i don't know?). It was for Guide dogs of the desert, for whom he painted the rocking chair (see below), in exchange for free advertising. We had some adventures during the previous week trying to get everything in order. But it all worked out, as you can see in the picture of me at the booth. And he also got some business from a guy who owns a custom bike shop (it was a bike run, if you can call it a run; so it was 98% bikers there). That same guy also invited Matt back the next weekend for his shop's show. So Matt gets another weekend of free advertising. I am going to miss it, because I will be up North for 2 showers. One is a wedding and one is a baby, i will let you guess which shower is for which cousin.

I have been getting into gardening. I need something to channel my nesting and mothering tendencies to do. I also want to prove to myself that I can grow something, because I have a black thumb (I kill plants). Case in point. My mini greenhouse. It's no longer together because it fell into the sink. Twice. The first time it was because I knocked it over. Th

And my truck is for sale. It's a 2000 Dodge Dakota and I love it. But I need to part with it, so Matthew and I can have a car and a truck, not 2 trucks! If you are interested, or know anyone who might be, please let me know! And no, we aren't selling it for $2,500, that offer has already been made. It is Kelly Blue Booked at $6,000. So we are asking $5,700. But call us if you have more questions.

Me at the show (just realized how stupid I look, ignore my face and look at the rhino plastics on the wall, they are like a woodie! And you can't see it, but that's a tiki on the hood!)

The Rocking Chair (someone else added the random bike parts)

My very cute pots!

It's starting to grow!!

My truck, please buy it!
