Capt Kasey driving the boat
Refusing to believe he doesn't fit in Moose's puppy sized bed
The only time I got him in doggy clothes....Go Bucks!
Kasey & Mom
Hey Mom! I found all these comfy blankets, err coats, on your bed!

Awww. Here's my baby Moose again. Since Kasey doesn't allow me to dress him up, poor Moosey has to pick up the slack. I got this adorable doggy ski vest for $1.99 at Old Navy. How could I pass up that bargain! As you can see he looked so cute in it. I like to think it kept him warm as he jumped through the snow!

Per usual we checked out all the shops and were pleased to see my lantern lady and purchased not one, not two, but three more for our collection. Well techincally one is for my parents, but we splurged on two for ourselves. We figured it was our last chance until she mentioned she has a new Etsy site....now I can get my glass lantern fix any time of year! You should check it out, her work is amazing. Wish Art Glass. I also picked up some bargain $7 sunglasses and a few treats for the dogs. Kasey devoured his doggy bagels while Moose has adopted the duck as his baby. Anytime you even go near it, he runs and "hides" it under the bed. We'll see how long it lasts. He's already ripped off the tag and is now going for the hair. What a goof ball.
The Hubs Choice
Moose's choice. Don't touch my duck mom
By Sunday night we're usually ready to see the hippies go, but this year was bittersweet. Prior to moving into my condo I honestly had never even heard of ComFest, let alone been to it. When you live right in the heart of it though you really learn to embrace it and look forward to it every year. Once we move it just won't be the same. Even if we happen to be in town we won't have the luxury of using our own bathroom and being able to enjoy the comforts of home in the heat of the day. Looks like next summer we'll have to trade the hippies and hemp for the ribs and blues of Kansas City.

Ok vent over. Hoping for a better afternoon.....

2 weeks from today the Mr. and I will offcially be living apart. Ten hours, four states and one time zone apart to be exact. It's going to be so weird. Since we started dating I don't think we've gone more than a week without seeing each other. And I've never, in my entire life, lived alone. Kasey dog might not been much of a conversationalist those first few years I lived in the condo, but at least he kept me company. Well with both dogs making the trip with "dad" I will really be by myself. Adam keeps joking that without me there will be no one do his laundry and cook for him. Ha.ha.ha. I told him if that's all he needs to survive he should have got a maid not a wife. :) Truth be told, I think he's going to be more lonely than me. I have at least lived sans roomate/family/significant other before...he has not. Plus he will be in a whole new city where he doesn't know a single soul outside my brother. I've already been trying to teach him a crash course in cooking so he doesn't survive on pizza rolls alone. And at least on the weekends he can go bum around the lake with my fam. Though he claims he won't because he will feel guilty having fun while I'm stuck here alone. *insert awww* When I told him I got my license he said..."so does this mean we get to move together??" :( No, But at least it means I have a better chance at employment which will eventually lead to being together again.
I've pretty much given up hope that the condo will ever sell. At least not in this market. The last guy who came through said it was "too feminine." Seriously? He does realize everything goes when we move right? And it's not like I have Laura Ashley and Boyd's Bears all over. Pardon me for not having a swingin' bachelor pad with leather furniture and a bear skin rug. I admit my place has a woman's touch...it is a woman's home afterall...but it is by no means super girly. I did finally take my wedding dress off the bedroom door, that probably would have made the guy spontaneouly combust! I think I better go knudge the St Joseph statue we buried....maybe he fell asleep over the winter and forgot about us. 10 months and counting......

***WARNING***the following is a bunch of randomness all crammed into one post
I have this battle wound on my hand that's still healing a month later. It itches like crazy and if I move my hand the wrong way it hurts like hell. I know itching indicates healing...but man I wish it would stop. It's also developing into a really, really FUGLY scar. Ugh. Moral of that story.....never attempt to sit on a slimy sea wall in Hawaii while the waves go crashing by. You will get swept over. You will slice your hand on the wall. You will now have a permanent reminder of your stupidity. Can you say Mederma??

Nikki Bag: I like the buckle and smaller size of this one
Choice #2 Grace bag: This one's not for summer, just for going out. It's the style my friend chose in Chicago and I'm always totally jealous when she has it out. So I designed my own. You can't tell, but I made the inside pink...cause who doesn't want a surprise when they open their bag.
Now see, again with the need for a million dollars! When we move to KC and I'm will be within walking distance of this wonderful, wonderful store....I'm gonna be in trouble!

Some Wedding pictures of me and my dad. He came dress shopping with me the second time when I thought I had narrowed it down to two. Out of no where he comes to the dressing room with this dress to try on. In my head I was thinking, "oh lord, what has he come up with now" but I tried it on. It blew everything else out of the water and immediately became the dress!! Who knew my dad had such good taste. He boasted to everyone the entire night at the wedding that he had chosen my dress. He was such a proud guy! I think he loved that dress almost as much as I did!
Happy Father's Day dad! I love you

I don't have to work....which means I always get 3 days weekends.
:::ducks for anything aimed straight at my head:::
Since the hubs of course is at work, Fridays are always "me" days when I do all the chores and running around he hates which leave sat and sun for us. Today I was up bright and early, too early in my opinion. Why is it on work days I can barely drag myself out of bed but on days off I'm up and ready to go at 7? I didn't mind as much today, I had an early bird shopper coupon at Macy's that I wanted to use for a wedding gift. The said gift was already on sale and now I could save an extra $10....hell ya! Well the old bitty behind the counter so smugly informed me my coupon didn't work on electrics. After pulling out my magnafying glass and reading the HUGE paragraph of fine print...I'm not sure that coupon worked on anything in the store. Grr. Fine. There goes my early bird special. On my way out I passed by the Clinque counter and all of a sudden had a dying urge to buy eyeshadow. I have 3 staple Clinique eye duos that I'm pretty sure I bought in highschool. Weeelllll....with my 10 year reunuion around the corner I figured it's probably time to replace them. It's a wonder I haven't given myself an eye infection! So after my mini makeover with the sales lady I decided on 3 new duos....and an impulse eye concealer/brighter to cover the bags. No kid will be calling me grandma anymore!
I now site here on my comfy couch, laptop on....catching up on the blogs I follow and watching some One Tree Hill reruns. I've just finished my new fave Friday lunch, lemon and almond chicken salad wrap, and am looking forward to a realxing afternoon. Happy friday!

Ok back to the real issue. Since we're still living in a shoebox...in the wrong state I might add, I've been dreaming of the house we will one day have. This new house will have more than one bedroom of course which means we defintely need a new set of furniture. I love the one we currently have, but I've had it since high school and it's really better for one person since there's only one dresser and nightstand. So I've decided it will be perfect in the guest bedroom.
And I got these shams from Pottery Barn in Daffodil Yellow
I plan on painting our future walls a light shade of grey....using yellow as the accent, hence the shams. I can't wait! And I'm still in shock I not only got the hubs to agree on this, but he claims he even likes it. Woah!
So here's where the million dollars comes into play. This is my dream bedroom set. Pottery Barns Farmhouse collection. :::wipes drool:::
The gorgeous canopy bed
