18.365.2014 Iron Chef

I had a really fun day! I woke up to the sound of a neighbor snow blowing. So I got up, had some coffee and then headed out to snow blow our drive way. I also did the driveways of two other neighbors who have helped us in the past. That felt good! The pooch watched me from his perch the entire time.


Then I went out for a haircut and grocery shopping. This evening we headed over to the King’s for our Iron Chef dinner. They made an amazing braised chicken.


And of course I had some yummy wine. It was a great time with friends and we had a great day!


345.365.2013 Snow Friends

Meh. It was a great day… Busy recapping Black Friday. Busy in meetings. Busy on conference calls. And then it began to snow. And snow harder. It was really coming down. I had to get out of dodge. I can’t handle stupid traffic so I left and came home to work.


The our friends Matthew & Rob came over for dinner tonight to discuss all things decorating, vacations, and other fun. We had a great dinner and some great drinks.


The pooch was so tired tonight. He’s saying good bye to our friends and getting some love.


302.365.2013 GSD, Homestyle

Well, another day of GSD. Today was the home version. First, Steve and Jaci came to visit and Steve fixed our 3 toilets. The awesome part is that he saved me $400 on new ones!! So excited. While he did that, I packed the pantry and rest of kitchen.

Then pooch and I went to the DP. Interestingly, he wanted to herd the other two border collies who were herding each other. Kind of funny!


Since I finished packing up the kitchen tonight, we now are on “eat out for the rest of the week” mode. This is not going to be good.


203.365.2013 HRH [name] is Born!

Ah, a glorious day!!

The Duke and Duchess had their royal baby today! It was very exciting to read and see all of the tradition and history. A town crier, the official notification on the easel, tomorrow’s gun salute, calls to the Queen and the Commonwealth leaders.

Well, Cheers!


Dave made a special dinner for the occasion. Chicken Parmesan with Bucatini. Yum!


And the pooch and I took a long walk tonight. He enjoyed the sun and the views.


202.365.2013 Wedding Fair Craziness!

Today was crazy…. Crazy busy, crazy fun and crazy exciting! Dave participated in his first wedding fair with DM Photographs.

I’ll admit, listening to his plans for the last several weeks stressed me out because one idea was bigger than the next. I was more stressed when I arrived and saw the space. BUT, it was pretty awesome! It all came together and I’m pretty sure we had the best booth…

Photo booth, contests, snacks, water, couches, albums, videos, music, make up artist… I mean…


I even took some time for fun in the booth!


The pooch was super tuckered from his big day out too.


Then we had a great dinner at Cafe Lurcat with Matthew and Beth. Their Sunday date night dinner is great! The dessert… Salted caramel Ice cream with lemon shortbread cookies and cinnamon mini donuts!
