Saw this quote here and loved it. Just some lovely words to live by...

"I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."
-Dawna Markova

a Non-Lucy post! shocker!

Last week, Pia and I went to see Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum play at the arena! It was a b-day present for Pia (from waaay back) - and I'd been patiently waiting for AGES to see my little Timmy Poo. :D We had awesome seats, about 5 rows up from the side of the stage! Someday i will get to live out my dream of being close enough to touch Tim, but for now this will do. Also, out of the approximately 10 times i've seen Tim McGraw, this was probably top 2 shows - so much fun! Here are a few pics, courtesy of our own little Ansel Adams (aka Pia)...

Anxiously awaiting the show! (of course, Pia was sitting right in front of one of her students, so they took the picture...typical.)

Lady Antebellum - they were super fun to see, love all their stuff!

It's not a Tim show without the gratuitious butt-in-tight-jeans shot...

so cute!

also, i totally lost my voice after this show - i keep forgetting i'm not 18 anymore. but you probably never want to sit next to me at a Tim concert, because i pretty much scream and/or sing the ENTIRE time. sorry. ;)

check it

that's right - it's a ball AND a stick! this girl can fetch anything.

fun at the lake (take 2)!

Yesterday, Pia and I decided to head out to meet up with some of the Camp gang out at Spirit Lake for the night. Natch, i go nowhere without my #1 gal Lucy, and we decided to bring our bud Matty along as well... Once we got there I was shocked to meet up with an old friend from my St Georges days, Bailey Wolff! random.

Anyways, the day was spend with LOTS of running in circles, swimming, exploring, eating bugs, swimming, fetching various sticks and balls from the water, trying to tear our ACL on the incredibly slick dock ramp, not sleeping and more swimming! Needless to say, "we" (of course i'm referring only to the puppy) are now cashed out on the floor with no plans to move any time soon!

Here are a few picks from the adventures...

fun with finger moustaches...

fun with sprinklers!

Today we discovered just how much fun the sprinkler is! This gal spent at least 15 minutes eating water, getting sprayed, and generally being a little bit confused... so cute I even had to grab my 'real' camera and not just my crappy cell phone!

the aftermath - a little water-logged!

flat puppy

So I have started taking Lucy Lou to doggy daycare once a week, since I felt bad that she has no regular friends to play with...

And she plays HARD! Which is great, cuz when she gets home this is what she looks like immediately:
The bad thing is that she follows it up with puppy school in the evening, so I have to wake her up from her power nap in order to get there... Yikes! But she is a busy little girl who works hard and plays hard. :)

BFF #75

This morning before leaving, we visited World's Greatest Dog Park with BZ, Kip/Lis/Allie/Maddie, and Rudy and Rudder! It was SO much fun!!! Seriously, makes me want to move back to the West Side just for the park. I didn't get any pics at the park of course (but Lis was snapping away so maybe i'll steal some from her blog if she posts)...

But here is Lucy (on the left) with BFF #75 Rudy. Although their relationship was really tenuous at best. Rudy immediately tackled/bowled her over when they got out of the car. But thankfully Lucy didn't really seem to mind, she was just happy to get some attention from him (and don't worry Megs, he didn't hump her at all - which is good, cuz he prob would have crushed her)...

road trip!!!

We are in Seattle! Luce, Lavs and I headed out last night after work... We left the house at 4:30, and after a 45 minute diversion to drop stuff off on the North Side :( we were off!
Here is Lucy in hour 1 (still happy, not totally sure what is going on though):
Lucy and Lavs bored out of their skulls after we ran into a 2 HOUR delay at Easton. Boo construction. We did end up watching like 5 episodes of "The Office" on my iPod, which was great though.

lazy sunday

This is what i've been looking at all morning... she must have worn herself out last night at my bday party! she spent the whole night following around her new BFF Sugar (my bud Michelle's dog) - who was NOT impressed by miss lucy. and she stayed up way past her bedtime.

it's tough work being a puppy!
