Hi There

Apparently August slipped away with me barely even popping in to say hi! I spent my August working long hour with few days off in between so I apologize for not stopping in more often.

The bright side of working lots is that we were able to completely save to the high end of our savings goal for our Fall Trip. Yippeeee!! You might remember these posts . We leave in less than 2 months for our trip and I'm extremely excited.

I can't believe its less than 2 months till we will be there! Are you looking forward to any big trips in the near future?

Puppy Whistle

I long for these days when my pups were this big!

So precious little warm fuzzballs that just wine and wag their tails.

These are circa 2007. I'm not sure which pup out of the litter this is but man oh man I am smitten when it comes to little puppies. If I am this crazy over puppies I can't image how I will feel when I have a baby.

Shut your mouth and Hold the Phone

This "Notebook" inspired engagement photo session is too die for. It doesn't hurt that the bride to be and groom to be look similar to Rachel and Ryan. Oh my goodness these are ahhhmazing. I'm a huge fan of the movie and have watched it tons of time. The very first time I saw it was in Ireland and have been smitten ever since! I remeber walking back to our hotel room from the movies and crying its such a heartbreaking beautiful story. This movie is one my favorites of all time. I die for this photo shoot.

Sunday Traditions

I keep on finding myself on Sunday nights drinking wine and eating cheese. Its a pretty fantastic Sunday ritual if you ask me! This weekend we tried a new to us tapa's restaurant, Manchego, which is also one of my favorite cheeses. The place was BYOB with no corkcage fee....Get out town! We stopped at the liquor store next door and brought in a bottle of spanish wine and ordered a cured meat and cheese sampler. It was amazing.

Not my picture but this is similar to what ours looked like - dry ham, prosciutto, salami, pepperoni, 3 different hard Spanish cheeses, gazpacho, membrillo paste and spicy olives. Yum Yum. Afterward, we ordered hot teas and drove down to the beach and watched the sunset. It was breathtaking and a much needed ounce of tranquility in what is going to be two very busy weeks for me.

Love my new body wash

I was bored with my usual body wash and this Dove one looked fresh and smelled good. The scent is grapefruit and lemongrass. Its amazing and smells so good.

I also like supporting Dove and their campaign for real beauty. It's nice to see a company that tries to embrace real women. A link to their website. They've got some fantastic video's on how the beauty/fashion industry changes women.

or just my cereal bowl. This weekend strawberries were on sale and Jack pointed out that we got a mutant strawberry in our box. I of course declared that it would be mine ( yeah I've got a case of the youngest child persona). This morning I got the mutant strawberry in my cereal bowl. We figured that it probably would have been at least 3-4 normal strawberries if it hadn't mutated. It was pretty delicious in all its mutated glory.
