Birthday Yumyums!

Little miss Pia had a birthday yesterday! Hurray! So, for some unknown reason, I volunteered to make cupcakes again... I really hate baking, but like the finished product.

Pia picked the Black Hole cupcakes again this year (dark chocolate cupcakes and frosting with raspberry surprise in the middle), and we also decided on the Sprinkles Strawberry cupcakes (strawberry cake with strawberry frosting - using fresh berries in both). SO good. And they looked cute too!

Happy birthday P! And no, I probably won't agree to do this again next year...

dog sitting

We've been dog sitting. For not even 24 hours. And I'm totes over it.

Kaylee, our BFF, came over last night. Since then, it's been pretty much non-stop wrestling, climbing on people, escaping out the back gate, getting into garbage, and tearing the stuffing out of toys.

These pics are awful (cell phone - to facebook - to my computer)... But it should give you a good idea how our day has gone!

Lavs and I have been watching Dexter season 1 lately... And it has totally rekindled my love for this show and guy! I had watched season 1 on Hulu way back when I was bored working night shift at Cedars in LA... but never got any further, because I didn't want to pay for Showtime and don't actually like watching TV shows on the computer if I don't have to.

Anyways, we watched the rest of the first season today (about 5 episodes) since I was off work - OMG. Love it so much. And you can guarantee we'll be catching up on the rest asap!

I would kill for these shoes. Maybe a tad shorter in the platform area. But that color? Amazing.

Who wants to loan me $995?

And btw, that is Beyonce in that pic - has she always been that blonde? crazy. anyways..

thank you Pinterest


I went to the doc's today for a check-up on the ol' knee...

We are looking good, peeps! He says he now thinks there is a 60-70% chance of no surgery (started out with 10% chance)!!! He is thrilled with this, as am I of course. Just have to keep working on strengthening those hammies/quads and not overdoing it or getting over confident, as the ACL could still easily re-tear/re-detach itself.

And the last little crutch should be gone by this time next week hopefully... I will not miss it. At all.

sometimes, when she's really tired, she does use her own bed.

One glorious year...

Hard to believe this gorgeous girl has been around our house for only one year - it pretty much feels like she's been here forever! She fit in perfectly, starting day 1, when she let me (a total stranger) pick her up and carry her to our car without batting an eye. I think we both just knew.

And what a perfect, happy, doggy kiss-filled year it's been.

Sure, I'm probably not the greatest owner - I could always walk you MUCH more, and we haven't been doing much since I got hurt... And you could be a better dog - maybe not hog the couch/bed so much, learn to walk on a leash without ripping Grammy's arm out of the socket.

But overall? Couldn't ask for a better gal.
