Wednesday Words

I couldn't believe my ears.  I've heard this line said twice this week- by two different people!  The second time it came from one of my students and the class had no idea why I started laughing. 

"These pretzels... are makin' me thirsty!"

I mean, what would we do without Seinfeld?!  Love him.

A Doggy Celebration

Ruby turned 3 this weekend!  I can't believe how fast our little girl has grown up!  Sunday was a beautiful day so we had some pups over for a play date and a cook-out (for us... not the pups).  We tried to capture a picture of all the puppies together. 


 So we tried again....

 and again..

We finally snapped this one...

Close enough?  At least all the people are looking, right?

Ruby was sad when all of her friends left. 

We will have to have them over again soon!

Happy Monday Party Peeps!

Can't wait to get this bad boy's film developed.

Ya, I said it.  Filmmmmmm.

One of my favorite things when I was a Freshman and Sophomore in college was to go to walgreens and get film developed.  This was before I got my first digital camera (the same one I left on a bus in Mexico after a bar crawl on spring break.  oops.  That sure was a bummer.)

Did you know that most photo centers don't develop real film anymore?  I find that to be very sad!

Wish me luck trying to find somewhere that will develop my film!

Birthday and House Guests

This past weekend was my birthday.  Man, I'm getting old.  I was not super excited about my birthday but was lucky that we had beautiful weather!  Having a birthday in February usually means lots of gloomy cold birthdays, but I couldn't have asked for a prettier day!  It was great.

Jeff and I went to dinner on Friday to celebrate, and then Jeff's parents came into town from Tulsa on Saturday to take us to dinner.  It was super nice of them and we had a fun time.  Then on Sunday (the day of my birthday) we went to my parent's for dinner.  We ended up celebrating the whole weekend! 

Jeff's parents stayed with us Saturday night.  We also had another little house guest for a few days last week/weekend while we were puppy sitting.

This is Penny. 

Isn't she a cutie?  And she's such a smart doggie too-  She even has her own blog!

She and Ruby were fast friends.

My friend Jamie took her home yesterday and Ruby has been wandering around the house looking for her ever since. 

I think Ruby needs another friend all for herself don't you?!   :)

Happy Monday Peeps!  Hope you all had a good start to your week!

It's my Birthday Week!

That's right. It's my birthday week. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I felt like I was old last year when I turned 25. Now I am one year older, but don't feel a day wiser. Is that ever the case? You have a birthday and think "I definitely feel my age. I know so much more now than I did last year." ??

Last year I celebrated with my sissy in NYC. I'll miss that this year. We had fun. And I'll miss her. We've only spent one birthday apart, when we turned 24. Lets just say it didn't go too well.  I wish you could just fly here Sissy so that we could hang out!

 This year for my birthday I'm hoping for this cutie girl.

Kidding, kind of.... 

She's from this website.  Isn't she too cute?!

I know that one probably won't happen, so I have a few other things on my list.  

I seriously can't believe I'm almost 26.  I feel like that is old.  Is it?  

It sure did sneak up on me...

25 was a good year.  Probably one that will go down in the books.  I got a new job, we went on a few fun vacations and saw a lot of friends walk down the aisle.  

26- I'm looking forward to what you have in store for me!  It better involve a soft furry creature, but I guess I could just settle for a new vacuum instead.  :)
