Yup. 99 degrees. It makes me s.l.o.w and sluggish and gives me a lack in motivation, which, I really need right now. I still haven't replaced the winter clothes in my kids' drawers with summer clothes (I really should be digging those out right now...) and I think Baron is running around outside somewhere with a long sleeved shirt on and some shorts from last summer that are way too small. And I'm sure he's covered in melted popsicle...
Well anyway, here's a little hodgepodge of stuff going on around here. First of all, this cute little dog:
hit her goal weight. If that confuses you, you can read about it HERE. She's healthy as can be now and acts like a puppy entirely too much of the time for my liking. Oh well, we'll keep her. I guess :)
She also just had her 3rd birthday. We gave her a treat cake and she snarfed them up so fast (it's been awhile since she had treats.... her diet, remember? :) that I thought she would puke. Luckily, they didn't make a re-appearance.
Okay, you might need to sit down for this one.... I mean, if you're not already, that would be kind of weird, but just the same.
I planted some flowers.
I'll give you a few seconds to get over your shock....
Are you ready yet? Okay, well then, let me tell the truth. I bought flowers and Andy planted them (that landscaping job 7 years ago did come in handy!)
Alright, back to my flowers :) I had a friend tell me that at Lowe's they have a little "flowers in distress" section (cute way to put it, no?) and all the flowers are 75% off. I have really been wanting to spruce up our yard but it's hard seeing as how we rent and I don't want to waste money on landscaping a place I don't own. Well, I found a bunch of flowers (that didn't seem too bad for being in "distress") and I found a few huge pots, added a couple hanging baskets and a cute place to hang them and voila! A 100% improvement. I really like driving up to my house now and seeing all of the happy, bright colors sitting on my porch and in front of my house. I love flowers.
Cute, right? Okay, well, even if you think they look like pooh, just tell me they're cute :)
And last, but certainly not least, we have this crazy fog. These pictures were taken only a few days ago. Isn't it so weird? I've been getting up at 5:30 to go running (with a friend and also my trusty pup) in the mornings (good thing I pay $65/month for a gym membership....) and last Monday I went out and saw this: It was kinda creepy. It was so thick I could practically chew it. Plus, by the time I finished running, my hair was a huge frizz ball. Yikes.
Not much else has been going on. We've gone swimming a lot since the pool opened. The last day of school is tomorrow and in a week and a half we take off for a looooong vacation to Utah. I can't wait, I am really excited to be lazy and let my mom take care of me :) In other news, Andy's job is going awesome, the kids are just so dang cute and I want to eat them up, and we're all happy and healthy. What a life.... I sure love mine.
