My throat is on fire

I was really planning a nice post tonight. It's been a fun and busy past few days with work, football, keeping in touch with adam, running, hanging out with friends and miraculously winning my fantasy matchup.

Unfortunately, tonight my throat is on fire. My sinuses are a little congested, but everything else mostly feels fine. I feel sick, and more than anything, I just want to avoid getting any sicker. I mean, what would the puggles do if mommy got too sick to take them on walks? So tonight I am focusing on relaxing, with a little vitamin C on the side. And I think a little frozen yogurt might go a long way to soothe my scratchy throat. :)

I feel like I haven't posted scrapbook pages in awhile, so I might as well drop these in here to make this post seem more substantial.

Frank Gore already worked one miracle for me this week, do you think he can help me wake up feeling all better tomorrow?

Bingo babe

I am not nearly hardcore enough for bingo. Me and a few of the CSO ladies went to Mary Esther bingo last night, and we came out sadly empty-handed. Our lungs, however, were filled with a great deal of second hand smoke. :) We had fun being completely clueless and giggly. I'm hoping to get som pictures from Crystal later because I didn't bring my camera.

The action at bingo was pretty intense, so I was hoping for an easy day at work today. Apparently, everyone else in Okaloosa county had the opposite idea, because the store was really busy from like 11:30 on. Jenn and I were the only ones there until 4 and neither of us were even able to take a full lunch break. Generally, though, I'll take a busy day at work over a slow one any time.

After work, I stopped at Target for dog food (my poor puggles would have had no dinner), and then spent the rest of the evening on the phone. I had really psyched myself up for a run before dinner (I had to convince myself after the busy work day that running was a better idea than sitting on the couch), but while I was changing I got a phone call from Adam. I hadn't heard from him since Wednesday. Obviously, we had a lot to talk about and it had gotten completely dark by he time we hung up. Now I'll have to wake up early tomorrow in order to walk the dogs and squeeze in a run before football starts. Definitely worth it, though. Having Adam away gives me more time to fit in my hobbies like blogging and running and gives me more latitude to try stuff in the kitchen, but there is no question that I am a happier Mary when Adam is here.

On a somewhat unrelated note: I think butternut squash is my new favorite food. I'd never had it before tonight and now I'm hooked. It's definitely going
on the shopping list again.

On another unrelated note: This picture of me and Willow is amazing. :)

Photo dump

Well, today was pretty boring.

Today was: walking the dogs, going to work, working out, making pizza for dinner and now cooling off my burned tongue with watermelon for dessert

Since I don't have anything interesting to say about today, I figured I'd head back into the vault and post some pictures from the last few weeks while I was absent from blogging.

I took sadly few (read: almost zero) pictures at the doggie birthday party, and none were very awesome. I guess I was just too busy having a great time. To prove that it did happen, here are the best pictures I could come up with. (I know the last one with Lauren is pretty awful, but at least you can see the delicious spread of snacks I put out.)

I took lots more pictures the next weekend (Labor Day weekend) when Adam's mom, Ron, Ambre and her boys Jagger and Max came to stay. These are a few of my favorites.

Finally, here's some pictures of my "new" stove that we've had for more than a month now. :) Pretty snazzy looking, huh?

So what do you think? It was totally worth the wait, right?

Quiet time

There are so few quiet, lonely nights in my life. I feel like I've been waiting and waiting for one in order to update my blog, and it just keeps eluding me. Now tonight, I'm finally alone and quiet...and blogging is not the first thing I want to do. :) Still, I'm here, and this is what I have to say.

The past few weeks have been pretty awesome.

Doggie birthday party: awesome
Visit from Mom, Ron and his family: awesome
NFL kickoff (and the quadruple team win): awesome
Putting off a real blog post to cuddle up with clean, soft puggles and watch a movie tonight: awesome
This photo: awesome

Good night.

Checking in

I blame The Hunger Games.

I know I kind of fell off the face of the earth last week. I got my copy of the final book in the series and I was dead to the rest of the world until I finished it. After that, it was easy to continue to forget about blogging. Anyway, right now I've got a house full of company and no time for a full update, but I did want to get the ball rolling with a quick post here. Hopefully, there will be pictures of a fun weekend to follow.
