sunday's thwacks and shout-outs.

Thwack (verb) : to strike with, or as if with, something flat or heavy.

Shout-out (noun) : a public expression of gratitude or recognition.


1.) While plucking my eyebrows this morning, I was really disappointed to notice how many wrinkles I have around my eyes.  What the heck.  I'm not even 27 yet.  Is that normal?

2.) The husband lost his iPod this week.  He was hussling between work and class in the library trying to get something printed out, and just forgot to grab it on his way out.  BOOO.

3.) The husband and I have not been grocery shopping for 3 entire weeks, and are going for the gold by trying to stretch it out another 1 week.  It's baaaad - we will most likely resort to top ramen, rice and beans, and cereal for the week.  Not like cereal is much different from the norm, but still.


1.) The husband and I got our photo shoot pics from Erich McVey this week. We are so so happy with how they turned out - and it's really no surprise with his talent.  Here are a couple of my favs.

You can see more on Erich's blog here.  Or my Facebook page here.

2.) Remember how I talked about the husband and I getting a new roomie?  Well, she's here.  And I think she's pretty great.  That is all.

3.) I had a little craft date with my friend Becky this weekend.  I made a bunting for my BFF Jamie who's getting married in a couple of months.  She asked me to to make one for her engagement pics in a couple of weeks - I'll post pics after she's had the chance to see it first : )

Beck and I also went to the Mad Hatter vintage flea market - which was AWESOME.  I honestly could have spent all afternoon ooohh'ing and awwww'ing over all of the inspiration.

4.) The husband, Sam (new roomie), and I went to Green Bluff today!  We went to pick out pumpkins and buy apples for more homemade apple sauce and apple crisp.  It was a gorgeous day, almost too gorgeous that it didn't feel normal walking through the pumpkin patch with all that sun shining on our faces.  But nonetheless, we ended up with some good ones.

Takes two to pull the empty cart.  woot woot.

Being unsure about my pumpkin choice.

Then being really excited about my pumpkin choice.

Aaaand this is our new roomie.

Albino pumpkin?

Our final loot.

5.) Believe it or not, the girls have dug a giant spot in our backyard, so now it's straight up dirt.  My good, perfect, angel dogs would never do such a thing, right?  Ha!  Anyhoo, we bit the bullet and had some sod laid this weekend so from here on out, they will no longer be covered in dirt every time they go outside.

These are the things that make this doggy mommy joyful.  Raise your glasses, here's to hoping they've grown out of their major digging stage!

  1. beautiful photos! Um I doubt you have any wrinkles that are noticable...
    I need to go to the pumpkin patch too! I love using them for fresh much better than the canned stuff for baking!
