Memorable Weekend

This past weekend was a lot of fun. It started out with my husband going to prom. Yes you heard me correctly he went to prom; he even asked me to go; but there was no way I was heading out to spend my evening with all those high schoolers hormones in overdrive!

(Looking thrilled to head to prom!)

But on Saturday I played with friends at the Kayakalon; which unfortunately I don't have any pics here but you can check out my slideshow of the day. We had a great time, gorgeous weather and our teams placed 1st, 4th, 5th & 9th; so all four in the Top Ten!

Afterwards I rolled in to my fun job at GOPC and hung out with my peeps! lol It actually was a perfect day; even if I did have to spend some of it indoors, at least it was in the heat of the day. I played around with my new camera getting shots of everyone at the shop.

(Corey and Sadler heading out for the day. Lucky dogs!)

So on Sunday my husband and I visted some friends because they are going to buy some property and start an Eco-commune (I am fascinated by this idea). Anyway, they asked for Lu's opinion on the land and it was beautiful!

and my dogs had a great time playing in the marsh.

So given the state of the dogs afterwards we had to go for a walk to dry them off. There was no way I was letting them in the back of Bob's Jeep looking the way they did.

My friend Spaghetti would have had a heart attack if she had seen how muddy they were. So you guessed it! Last night was bathtime at my place. But they had fun and that's what having a dog is for. :) We had a great weekend and it was such gorgeous weather here, in the 80's and sunny. Definitely a great weekend for being outside.

My wishes for you today...

Okay, so I got this as an email and did what the instructions said to do; which was to pass it on to 12 women friends. So I try not to forward stuff on like this but I liked it and thought it should be shared with the blog world instead of only the 12 women I could think of. Here you go...

'May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.'

Long Weekend

Man I was so grateful to have a long weekend and was determined to have some fun and get some sleep. Finding myself somewhat single again means I am having a hard time adjusting to sleeping alone; by alone I mean just me and my two dogs. I often find myself going to bed closer to midnight; which this is late for someone who wants to be up between 6-6:30.

Okay, I digress; this post is all about my long weekend and the fun I had. Thursday night I stopped by the shop to drop off an Easter basket for Nola; she belongs to my friend Spaghetti and is her only child at this point, but don't tell Spaghetti she's a dog. :) So while at the shop we ran in to a friend and decided to go hiking on Friday morning, damn there went my morning of sleeping in. BUT, we had a great time; it was definitely worth not sleeping in for. The morning was a bit cool but after being on the trail for about an hour things warmed up and we had a blast. My dog Turbo loved pulling my friend G around on his leash all morning. Thank God for G; you saved my knee. After being pulled around by a 45 lbs dog I think it'd have been mush by the end of the 6 mile hike (Spaghetti & I both agree it was closer to 6 than the 5 miler G claims). For the awesome swamp pics and beach pics check out Spaghetti's photos, I didn't take my camera because I knew she'd take tons of pics. By Friday night I was wiped out and even more determined to sleep in on Saturday. Keep an eye out for Turbo's video debut anytime, he was hilarious digging in the wet sand and diving into the water.

Saturday came and again, no sleeping in cause I was determined to go to the farmers market and get my place in order after having new carpet put in. Saturday was all about getting stuff done but it was so gorgeous I figure if I had to be running errands I couldn't have picked a more gorgeous day. Besides by Saturday afternoon I came home, curled up on my couch and took a nap; which I never do. Naps just aren't my thing but the couch looked so inviting. I dined on some yummy cilantro lasagne that night cooked by Spaghetti; she hated it but I thought it was delicious!

Sunday came and yes I DID SLEEP IN! I didn't get up until 10:00 and just in time to get a text from my friend S to go to brunch and play Rock Band. How could I pass that up? And then I took my pups to the off leash dog park and they went spastic since it has finally dried up enough to no be a swamp. Good times, good times... were had by all.

So, all in all it was a great weekend. If only I could have one more day...

So it was bathtime this evening at my place! My two pups Rogue & Ridge had a ball romping around afterwards. I had a great time watching them play! Here's a few pics.

Ridge just wanted to roll around on the couch afterwards; so we added the blanket. :)

And my girl Rogue wanted to show me all of her toys, she loves toys & carrying them around.

And here they are as adorable as possible. So I'm a little biased but they really are the most adorable aussies in the world. :)


So I need a blog makeover. I want something lively full of color and something that completely reflects my odd personality. Now I know I only have a few followers but does anyone have suggestions? I really love the look of Gin's bags on her blog and would love the funky fresh patterns; something like this in a blog would be perfect! Thoughts, suggestions?
