Our Doglike Kitten

Shortly after we adopted Maya we realized she really likes playing with toys. She actually started bringing them to our feet when we were watching TV. So I've finally captured a video of her playing her favorite game. See it for yourself, Maya loves fetch.

Also, if you listen closely you can hear her skidding on the tile, which Jonathan has termed "burning paw" (instead of burning rubber, lol). I still giggle when I hear him say it!

Wake UP!

My mom called Saturday morning in a panic, "So You Think You Can Dance tour tickets go on sale in 15 minutes!!" So I got on Jonathan's computer and Chels got on my computer and we searched ticketmaster until the system gave us the perfect seats. We finally landed Section 106 (right in the middle!), Row 3!! Can't wait until November 1st. This is an annual event for my mom and I. This will be our 3rd year.

The Grill Master

Since the weather started getting nicer Jonathan has really been helping me out in the kitchen. You see, he's a master at the grill! Each week I buy lots of meat for him to grill up and then all I have to worry about are the side dishes! It's great. Tonight's Sunday night meal was no exception. Jonathan grilled some yummy chicken and I paired it with some couscous, broccoli, and cauliflower. A delicious, and healthy, dinner for two!

Fun In The Sun

Chels and I had a great time at the pool! We only made it for about an hour and a half because it is a hot one out there!!

Weekend Here I Come!

So glad the weekend is here. Lots of stuff planned with my sisters Ash and Chels. Hopefully we'll get some swimming in if the rain stays away!

Huge week next week. Movie night, dads birthday, and National Cheesecake Day. Stay tuned!!

Jonathan To The Rescue

Last night before washing my face I was letting the sink run until the water got warm. As I was taking off my earrings one of them slipped out of my hand and was washed down the drain. I was so upset because the earrings were a surprise gift from Jonathan for Christmas.

So today Jonathan put his handyman side to work...

...and within 5 minutes took the pipes out and dug my earring out of the "gunk"!

Thank you Jonathan!! :)

Fantastic Weekend

I had a really nice weekend. Great weather, got a lot of work done around the house, housewarming party with friends and good food, and a peaceful evening walk with the husband. Sunday is also the day of the week we always have a home cooked meal. Tonight was seasoned pork chops on a bed of rice pilaf with sauteed spinach (well, I'm the only one who enjoyed the spinach). It was yummy and there are enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

What a Beautiful Day!

Wow, the weather was so nice today we were able to turn off the air conditioner and open the windows! Little Maya loved it and every time you saw her she was watching birds and enjoying the breeze!

We were also busy working outside. Jonathan purchased a new weed eater and mowed the lawn while I cleaned out and watered the flower beds. I also provided him with a drink each time he had to empty out the grass clippings!

Tonight we are off to Wade and Jodi's housewarming party.

Hope everyone is enjoying this fall like day!

Hobby Time

Thanks to Jonathan always saying I need a hobby to keep myself occupied I decided to scroll through the recent community college catalog that came in the mail. I was surprised to find the "Personal Enrichment" section! There's some good stuff in there. So this fall Im going to sign up for 6 classes. Im super excited. It's nice because some are multiple sessions but others are just a one day class. They include:

Digital Photography For Travelers
Hors d'Oevres
Basic Cake Decorating
Flower Bed Design
Bulletproof Self Esteem
5 Love Languages Of Marriage

And on my tickler for the future are: Luscious, Low-Fat Quick Meals, Italian For Travelers I and II, and Drawing for the Absolute Beginner.
I bet Jonathan is sorry he even mentioned my lack of hobbys now!

Sisters Night Out

Ash, Chels, and I went to Kona Grill for a sisters dinner. We didn't hold back on our sushi order either! It was delicious. We had a great time laughing and catching up. After dinner we treated ourselves to gelato! Reeces peanut butter for me and cheesecake for Ash and Chels. It was a great evening.

Chels will be staying the weekend and we have lots of stuff planned including sun, swimming, scrapbook shopping, decorating, and organizing! Cant wait!
