Today, my order of over 250 photos, yes real bonified printed hard-copy photos! came in the mail. I just spent the past 45 minutes putting them in chronological order, because god knows it's too hard for shutterfly to keep them in order, and I now have the very satisfying task of putting them in a real life photo album!!
And no matter what you say, I'm super Excited about it!!
When I'm not taking photos, I'm crafting! And with Christmas ahead fun crafting get-together a with friends are an awesome passtime! Here are the fruits of those labors...
It's funny how something like having a dog can make you learn new things about yourself.
Having Brody around the past month has taught me about, well really more Affirmed, my nurturing character and it's strength. It's been 4 weeks with our pup and I still hate leaving for work every morning, and am sad to leave him in the car when I go into a store.
I went to Petco for the first time last weekend (Mr. Man had been doing it alone prior to that) and Brody was allowed Into the store with us!! That was so much fun!
Having Brody has also taught me that I love being outside, even when it's cold and windy and possibly raining (ok, maybe not when it's raining, let's be honest here!). I enjoy the fresh air and the time to just walk with him. It's a great Necessary Motivator to get outside at a time of year when normally I would hibernate.
I also learned that I can't let Mr. Man always be the one to fill the food bowl, because Brody has very much less interest in me when he doesn't think I'll ever feed him! Oh Dogs!
Seriously one of the best weekends every year! Anyone who has ever vacationed, visited, lived in, or grew up in Wellfleet comes to the town for an awesome event.
I am not gonna lie, I don't know how people can go to Oysterfest and walk around for the whole two days and just look around and deal with the crowds for 48 hours. I have to mix in a bit of shopping, lots of eating, some visiting with friends, and some working of course!!
This year friends came to visit for the 2nd time on this iconic weekend.
There was some Oyster-eating:
Some friendly photo poses:
Lots of cute-Baby admiration:
Some serving of oysters of course:
And some doggy-lovin:
A great weekend all around! Thanks for visiting!!!
No I'm not pregnant, but my family has grown by four feet this week! Mr. Man and I got ourselves a doggy!!
Any one who knows me at all knows that I am not a dog person, but my husband is. When I said 'Yes' on that beach over 2 years ago, I knew that a dog would be in my future! And the time finally came.
And now let me say, that this dog was made for me!! My husband found him at our local rescue league, put a 24 hour hold on him and we went to pick him up the very next day. He is a 3 year old Husky, and we named him Brody!
Brody loves to go for walks outside at our local park. But then at home he is perfectly content lying in a good spot on the floor, and then another good spot on the floor. And that's about it.
And he makes me smile!
I won't say I'm a full convert, because I definitely don't love every dog, but this one has won me over in just a few short days!
I love kids. I don't think that's news to anyone who has ever met me.
I've been babysitting since I was 12 years old and been pointing out babies in stores with my mom since before I can remember.
Since I'm not yet at the point of having my own, I fill my days with these cuties to get my monthly fill of baby-time. Hope you enjoy these cute faces as much as I do...ok probably not quite as much as I do, but that's ok.
Remember when I mentioned a couple weeks ago that my Man was home randomly for a weekend at some point this summer...? Well, he wasn't actually "home" for the weekend, he was home for Friday night, and then Saturday morning we headed to Vermont together, with a friend.
Why were we going to Vermont you ask...?
We were going to Vermont so My Man and his friends could run in a 11 mile military grade obstacle course on a mountain of course!
Yes, that's right Ladies and Gentlemen, my husband is officially a Tough Mudder!!
And I couldn't be prouder of him!
They finished in exactly 4 hours, and to my amazement, could actually walk under their own power the following day!
