P is for Productive!

Well Justin has been a GREAT sport and he's let me go to town on overhauling our house. We've painted, we bought a dining room table, we've moved everything around...and then around again...the list goes on!

And then I thought it would be so funny to post pictures that are not our house and pretend it is, but then I don't want it to seem that I'm not thankful for what we DID do! I just haven't had time to take pictures and post them.

All I'm sayin is, once it's finished, I will post the heck out of some pictures because I am so excited to share the change!

So I guess here's a few pictures of inspiration....that are NOT my house:

Stay tuned! I'll have something posted hopefully next week.

All the best to you and yours!

I got great news pictures will be in late this week!

Emily Brenner did such a fantastic job and I swear, I will probably spend 3 hours going through every single picture and enjoying every single detail.

It was the best day of my life.....I can't wait to relive it. Not to mention, Justin and I are so lucky to have had such a genius behind the lens! Her work is genuine but she's incredible at maximizing every opportunity to make art out of the time she spends with you.

I don't know that I can ever tell you enough, Emily, but you far exceeded my expectations.

My many, many thanks to Emily...if you're looking for a photographer of any kind, please do yourself a favor and give her a call.

Also, if you'd like to troll through some of our photos, you can go to her website; click on 'Clients' and our password is dillon.

Much love to you and yours....have a great weekend.

Sick Puppy!

Last night when I got home from NYC, Owen was acting normal & fine...bouncing off the walls like any other day.

Then all of a sudden, he wasn't himself. He was trembling and whimpering...he even crawled into his mother's lap for some TLC:

So what did we do? Got online to diagnose the problem ourselves! Ha! I decided he might have low blood sugar and the almighty world wide web recommended that I feed him a few spoons of honey.

This was the poor sap when I fed him honey:

I think he thoroughly enjoyed the honey...but turns out that he hurt his spine (glad I'm a recruiter and not a vet)...probably doing something crazy like chasing a horse or clearing a king size bed in one swift jump.

The vet gave me some meds to keep on hand in case he throws out his back again. And she wasn't as proud of me as I was of myself for feeding him honey...since it made no sense to do it in the first place.

But! All's well that ends well. Today he's acting normal, dragging limbs in from outside that at a glance look like human arms. We're glad he's back to normal, even though he's a world-class snuggler when he's sick.

Hope you all have a good week....

(and Owen)
