The Brighter Side..

It has been a sad week. Grandma's services were this weekend, and everyone was in less than high spirits. We all know that she is in a better place now; she is pain free, and she can be with Grandpa again, but that doesn't make it a happy time. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during this time. Please continue to pray for the family as we all cope with her loss in our own way.

On the brighter side.... I received the Tervis Tumbler I won from Hayley at Deals, Steals, and Heels on Friday! It was nice to have sometime to smile about! In addition to my Tumbler (which is so super cute), she also sent a lid and straw for it, some super adorable coasters she handmade, 2 packs of note cards, and a journal. Love it all! Thanks for brightening up my day Hayley!

My Tumbler

And all my other loot :)

Saturday Ed and I spent some time together and relaxed. We really and truly don't do it often enough, and I really enjoyed it. We went swimming with our puppy dog (who is oh so cute and adorable in her little life vest).

Ok, so I happen to think the boyfriend is kindda cute too (but don't tell him!)

Ed is trying to teach her to be a diving dog, so he is working on getting her to put her head under water to grab her toys...

Ed demonstrating a rescue technique, lol.

And then we headed off to see G.I. Joe. It was alright.... A little long. I got to look at Channing Tatum, and he got to look at Sienna Miller, so all was good. lol.. We had some yummy dinner at the Cheesecake Factory (and of course some yummy Kahlua Cocoa Chocolate Cheesecake with a Cappuccino). And then we played some car racing game on his new Xbox 360 where I crashed a lot, and he laughed a lot, but a good time was had by both :)

Today we are "getting things done". I have to study for my last test of the semester, and do some housework. You know, un-wife housewife stuff... and he is off to his parents house to do some work on his boat so we can try and get some more use out of it before summer is over!!!! Zoey keeps askin' when she will get to use her life vest out on water instead of the pool!!!


  1. I love the pictures of your dog in her life vest. We want to buy one for our boxer, who is completely incapable of swimming. So cute!

  2. Awwww...Zoey is adorable in her life vest!

  3. She actually swims like a fish, but we like to let her wear it every now and then so she won't freak when we make her wear it out on the boat. Plus she zooms around super fast in the pool with it on!(and it's cute)

  4. Tell Ed you want to change your blog to the houseWIFE life!! :)

  5. glad everything made it there okay, and in time for a little day-brightening =)

    and OMG the pup is sooooo cute in the vest!!!

  6. i am sorry about grandma. very sorry.

    loving all the pics.

  7. I'm glad you got to spend some time together! Zoey is just darling in her life jacket -- Fenway has the same one!
