4 lovely years!

Chris & I celebrated 4 lovely years of marriage yesterday!

It's hard to believe that it was 4 years ago we started our journey together...time flies!

My sweet husband had these beautiful roses delivered to work for me yesterday.

We were so tired after work yesterday we ordered Chinese food from our favorite place down the street & stayed in.
It was lovely!

I am so blessed!

Sadie, the circus dog

This is my first attempt ever at loading a video...hope it works!

Chris recently taught Sadie to jump through a hula hoop for a treat.
Occassionally she'll mistakenly do it with no treat involved.

The 2 of them are incredibly amused by her trick, so I videoed it!

new do...

I got my hair cut last week before we headed out of town.

I was in the mood for something a bit new & different.
Eboni at Aveda was amazing & understood just what I was looking for!
I don't really like the picture of me in general,
but it gives you an idea of my new do!

Over the weekend, we were on the lake so much I made little effort to style it.
This week, I've tried to work on making it look just right.
I decided today that I couldn't do it with out a straightener.

So, I visited Target (I never need an excuse to visit Target anyway!), and found this most fun green straightener...

So far, it's been a good hair day!

I HATE deer...

Yep, you heard me...I HATE deer.

I hate very few species of wildlife outside of snakes (ahhh!), spiders (ewww!), roaches (gross!), and mosquitoes (because they bite me!).
Now, I'm officially adding deer to the list.

I visitied our garden on Monday after being out of town over the weekend only to find that some obnoxious deer had eaten everything in my garden.

He ate the tomatoes that were just getting big,
he ate my tiny baby squash just coming on the vine after the big, beautiful yellow blooms,
he ate my zuchinni (I did salvage one!),
and he ate my cantaloupe vines.

In case he wasn't full & happy enough he came over & ate the beautiful hostas I had planted in our front yard.
Not only were they beautiful, but I put a lot of hard work into planting them & that's when I encountered the horrible poision ivy that left me itching like a mad woman for a week.

Enough said...I HATE deer!

4th of July fun!

We enjoyed a great weekend with lots of 4th of July fun at the Tarr's place on Lake Hartwell.It was nice to have a getaway from home to enjoy all sorts of fun...
evening boat rides on the lake,
hours & hours of Sea Doo riding (I learned how to drive...soooo fun!),
laying in the sun on the dock,
grilled hamburgers and hot dogs,
Boo Boo's fresh strawberry cake,
homemade vanilla & strawberry ice cream,
shopping for 4th fireworks,
laughing with family,
watching the annual tradition of the Tarr men shooting off fireworks (for almost 2 hours!),
homemade barbeque pork,
fresh blueberry pie,
my very own cookie dough pie (I posted the recipe last month & it's sooo easy & very delicious!),
watching Sadie swim in the lake!

Pretty much, it was a wonderful weekend!...glad to be home though to catch up on some things around the house.
