Great weekend!

I really love summer time. The heat doesn't bother me & the older I get, the more I can't stand the cold! :) So I'm trying to enjoy summer as much as possible!

Friday night I went to my friend Connie's house for dinner and then to see The Ugly Truth with Katherine Heigl. She is so dang cute! Of course she looked great throughout the movie. The movie was funny, some rude/crude parts, but if you can overlook that, it was good!

Saturday I did the flea market with mom & my sister and then I ran errands the rest of the day. Saturday night came it was time to see Wicked! I have been anxiously awaiting this for quite some time! Eric & I had tickets, but he is still gone, so I took my mom. She doesn't get out much since she takes care of her mom, so I was really glad she could come! It was fantastic. Story was great, as well as the music. The wicked witch straight-up belted it the whole show, we loved it! Eric wants to get tix again & go when he gets back, he was so mad he couldn't make it, so now I'm looking forward to going a 2nd time!

Today I went to church & then went with my mom, grandma & sister over to Porter, OK to get some peaches! They are just the best and the orchard store has other great veggies too. So feel free to pass on any good peach or okra recipes :)

So overall, a great summer weekend!! Still waiting patiently for Eric to get home, he is scheduled to be in on the 6th. Makes for 4.5 weeks gone! Crazy.

Anyway, hope everyone has a great week!!!

Eric is still traveling for work, so I've just been entertaining myself and Capone! :) I got my hair trimmed (was hoping for an actual style, but still no luck!), and then went to Affair of the Heart on Saturday with some friends. I had never gone & we had a great time! Lots of stuff I wasn't interested in, lots of precious baby/little kid items that just made me want a little girl right then, and a few things I actually bought :) My favorite was a necklace from The Vintage Pearl. I have never seen this kind of jewelry but I really liked it because it was so simple yet different. I got a small round piece with just a capital "L" in cursive on it, I love it! Similar to the picture below but without the pearl (they didn't have one w/a pearl or I would've gotten it):
I also got a new makeup bag, I'm very picky on the style, and I found just what I wanted from a place called Tatermash. Its plastic lined and has a handle! This is the one I got & I'm going to take it to the store to get and L on the front like this one.

After that my friend Connie had a housewarming party. It was a really fun time and I saw lots of people I hadn't seen in a while. She has the cutest house & has done a great job fixing it up. I'm also on a mouse catching spree at my annoying! They invade in July for some reason, did the same thing last year.

Anyway, not much going on this week but am super-excited to see Wicked this Saturday night! :)

Have a great week!!!

Happy 10 months :)

Today is our exciting 10 month anniversary! I can't believe its almost been a year already, how time flies! A year ago today is also when we gave our relationship faith story at church in front of A LOT of people and it was just 2 months until the wedding :) Eric is traveling right now unfortunately, but will be back in a couple weeks, so we celebrate from afar!

Doggy tote for a good cause! :)

Whitney Caroline Designs is one of my favorite blogs to look at all her creative bags, etc. She has partnered with this blog, The Prep-E-Girl who is helping a group called Puppies Behind Bars. Whitney Caroline is helping her to do a fundraiser for them with a bag she has created. You can read all about it on her blog.

I think they are super cute!! They are just $20 & you can order from her blog. I thought this would be good for me for when we take Capone somewhere & have to bring his bowls, treats, food, etc. instead of using a Wal-Mart bag :)

Father's Day 2009

We had a lovely Father's Day weekend a few weeks ago. My aunt Barbara was in town (dad's sis) and it was perfect summer weather. Eric & I decided to have dinner at our (my grandmother's) house---we haven't had a big dinner here mainly because we don't have a dishwasher, so it would make for lots of dishes! But we decided to go on with it & I found some nice disposable plates that weren't too tacky :) We grilled lamb chops & veggies, and Lauren made our grandma's yellow cake w/chocolate icing.

We got cards mailed to my stepdad, Eric's stepdad & dad & the phone calls were made on Sunday to all of them. We are so grateful for each of them, such good men & wonderful examples to have grown up with!

My dad is pretty much the nicest guy ever & such a blessing to be around. We are so thankful for him!
