Stay Tuned...

So yeah, I was reminded the other day that it's been a while since I have blogged. It's "blogged" right?
Doesn't really matter.

A lot has happened since whenever it was that I blogged last. Let's just start from today.
Amy, her kids and I went to the beck by the band shell today. I was sweating just sitting there, but the girls loved the beach! We left after 2 hours.

Here's a picture of a dog I saw driving a car on my way to work the other day:

Oh and here's a picture of the girls "sitting" next to me on the couch the other day:

Okay and so since the last time I blogged, I went to a garage sale and bought a very ugly print for $3. I only bought it because I loved the frame so much. This picture is what I did with the frame (I put pictures in it):

I threw away the print, I did not take a picture of that for you.
I got the idea from a VERY cool website I heard about from my friend, Sue. The website is:

Check it out for a lot of DIY stuff.

I am SO excited for tomorrow! There will be more than 26 people at The Shout House in Minneapolis where we will be celebrating my 30th birthday. I thought I would blog now and not Sunday because I might forget how to type come Sunday morning. But I kinda hope not. I want to remember my birthday and have a great time.
Yeah.. We shall see.

Stay tuned...

Training Day

Today is the Fourth of July and we got back from the cabin. I think the 4 of us are equally full of 'puppy chow', hamburgers and brats, pasta salads and chips. Well, maybe I am more full of the 'puppy chow' more than anyone else.

Saw a lot of family and enjoyed it all very much. The girls were reminded on the way home, that they have a good life, as some children don't even have a home. They are lucky to have a home to sleep in, but that they are extra lucky to have a cabin to go to sometimes.

Just sayin'..

I keep forgetting how much work it is to pack and unpack-not to mention the laundry and dishes that need to be done when we get home. I don't usually tend to mind the laundry and dishes, but I these times of the year, I have 2 girls to clean up after.

After all is said and done, I am sitting here watching one of my favorite movies--Training Day--and drinking a beer.
Ahh, it is good to be home though. I will enjoy hearing the fireworks tonight, but I will be inside my home this time and not on the beach.

Both places are good to be at, but home is best right now.

Until next time..
