On the hunt...

Busy as usual around here.  Looking forward to my nephew's 2nd birthday tomorrow:

More details here.

And, of course, the SpongeBob party this weekend to celebrate!  Still watching this:

More details here.

And kinda bummed that they just aired the season finales for SVU and regular Law & Order.... that means nothing but reruns! sigh.  At least my guilty summer pleasure of Big Brother (shhhh!!) is coming back soon.  Had fun making this layout last week for the Scrapthatlon challenge on

Amazed that not one, but two people recognize my high school and know someone who went there while I was there!  And last but not least, looking forward to summer walks with the doggie.  Gotta love a dog that will put up with this:

More details here.

Yep, we have a wardrobe for her.   AND she wags her tail when the doggie clothes come out!  (And yes, Brian is shaking his head in embarrassment for her as he reads this in his e-mail!! lol!!)  The funny thing was the only reason why she posed for these pictures is the tennis balls I was luring her with.  If you look closely, you can see it in one of the pictures!

One last thing... on the search for great recipes.  I got a great comment from abbeyviolet to check out this recipe for waffles (thank you!!), which got me thinking (again) that I'd love to find some new great dinner options that are quick, easy and healthy.  Feeling that stuck-in-a-dinner-rut sensation.  Lots of veggie stir-fry around here.  Suggestions?

Five Random Things

So last week I posted five moments, tonight?  Five random things internet sorta things that I'm loving:

1.  Wordle.  Not new, but still fun to play with every once in a while.  I ran my blog feed through Wordle and it gave me this:
Guess I shouldn't be surprised that the most common word is time?! Ha!  Go and play.  It's fun!

2.  Ever since I saw this, I can't not think about it.  These must be made asap.  All varieties.

3.  Will it waffle?  I laugh, but I can't stop looking back at it.  I'm almost intrigued enough to pull out the waffle maker and try something.  Almost.....

4.  Can we do this to our garage.... uh, I mean bike shop honey?

5. Pictaculous.  Love this for picking a color palette from pictures.  So quick and easy!

Things that keep me awake at night! Well, not really.... but still fun! ;)

I love discovering new things online. Have you found any interesting quirky things around the internet recently?

Five Moments

My favorite new discovery is this website.  If you haven't checked it out, you should!  So I'm going to answer one question I found today:

Name five moments in your life so far that you believe that you will remember happily in your old age. 

#1:  The first dance Brian and I shared at our wedding.  I remember every second from that moment in time.  Really everything from that day, but that moment of love will always stand out in my mind. 

#2:  On the day I graduated from high school I remember posing for pictures in our house with Michelle.  A day filled with friends and family.  So happy despite the fact we were rained out and stuck indoors at the fairgrounds.  So happy I was able to share that moment with Michelle.  Who knew we would end up living together in college?!

#3:  Graduating from college - that moment of receiving my degree and hearing my name called.  All that hard work rewarded.  That feeling of accomplishment.  Shared with Michelle again which made it even more special.  

#4:  Holding Creighton for the first time.  Such a joy in our lives.  So look forward to watching my favorite little man grow up and being a part of his life.

#5:  Walking across the finish line after having walked 60 miles in 3 days.  The triumph of mind over body.  The pain.  The accomplishment.  Making a difference and giving back.  I will never have the words to describe that moment in my life, but I will always look upon it with happiness and gratitude for the support I received.

This will definitely be making it's way into the scrapbook sometime soon!  What are your answers? I'd love to know. :)

Back from the Beach!

And just trying to get back into the swing of things.  Today has been a long day adjusting back to working, missing my husband and dealing with kitty issues among other things. 

I haven't downloaded my camera yet, but Sandy took this beautiful picture of the beach!

While traveling back and forth to Florida, I managed to read two books cover to cover!  The Last Song by Nicolas Sparks (total heartbreaker) and Hero at Large by Janet Evanovich (good fun romance and if you haven't read the Stephanie Plum series, you're missing out!).  Bringing my total to 5 out of 30 since I started my 30 by 30 project.  Not as many as I'd like, so I'm working on that.  I'll be back soon with some pictures of the beach and results of my dedicated crafty time.

Thank you a million times over to Tabby and Heather for the blog love!  I wish I had the energy and time to pick only 12 blogs to give the sunshine award to, so to everyone reading this, I love reading your blogs!   You girls made me smile with the love ya left me. So thank you! :)
