Another birthday...

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to two very special people in my life.

My Cousin Katie had her birthday yesterday. I was not able to hang out with her because I was working are all day krop for the store. I only have two girl cousins and no she is pretty much a sister to me and I love her very much!
Today is my Donna's birthday! I couldn't have been blessed with a better friend. I met her through work probably about 4 years ago. She is such a wonderful friend to me...always there to help me in any way she can...I owe a lot to her. I love her so much too!!! I hope they both had fabulous birthdays and I wish they all the love in the world!!!

Puppy Love

Some of you know that I have become an un-official dog sitter. I mostly dog sit for my aunt. I thought I would share some pictures of the dogs in my life. I don't have a dog anymore. It has been many many years since I have had a dog of my own.

This is Brady. He is my aunt's dog and he is huge. I like to think of him as a horse. He is so good for me.

Stanley is my cousin Katie and Jim's dog. I am so in love with him! He is a wiener dog and I LOVE little dogs because then they can just sit on my lap.
I use to have two little dogs when I was a little girl.

The last dog I am going to show is Luna. She is my friend Katie and Jim's dog. (Yes a different Katie and Jim) She is so full of life and energy. We took her in the car when we went looking at different halls for Betsy. So one pic is her in the mirror.

Looking at all these cute puppies...doesn't it make you want one?

This past weekend I had my friend Rachel's graduation party and we had father's day celebration.

Rachel's party was at Katie and Eric's house. It started out to be a really nice day and then of course it rained, so we hung out in the garage for a while.

Later that night we went to this bar called Lady Luck. I have always wanted to go to this bar because everyone calls me Lady Luck. It is a bar that is right off the expressway and from the outside it doesn't look to safe...well at least for a bunch of young girls to go to. So we were OK to go because we had to guys with us. I was so excited to see this place. It really is nothing special, but I was happy because I felt like dancing and they had music.

On Sunday my family went to my Grandparents house to celebrate Father's day and my twin cousin's graduation party from 8th grade. Man oh man...they make me feel old. I was 10 when they were born. Just crazy...
I took a ton of pictures on father's day ~ I think because for once the whole family was there, and I think I am a little camera happy because my camera is still broken so I was so happy to have a camera in my hands. (I was using my parents camera)
My grandpa, I LOVE him so much!!!
The boys ~ Max and Alec, opening their gifts
Of course my Lil Avery...I just can't get enough of her. I take so many pictures of is crazy.
I was so happy to get a picture of my grandparents and all 5 of their kids. I think it is a really great pic. They all were getting mad at me because I was taking so many pictures.
I also wanted to get a picture of each dad and his kids.

I hope everyone else had a lovely weekend and wonderful father's day!

rain rain go away...

We have been having some crazy weather lately. I like to blame it on Stephanie...I think she brought it back from Texas. J/K

I took some pictures of all the water and damage on my parents camera, so I am hoping to post them soon.

It has been a busy week at work. I have had a lot of re-arranging and organizing to do.

This weekend I am dog sitting and house sitting for my Aunt. I am hoping to take a picture of her dog Brady tonight so I can post it. He is HUGE...I think I could ride him like a horse.

On Saturday I have one of my best friends graduation party. Rach graduated in December when I did...only on a different day and from a different school. She graduated from UWM with her major in Communications.

I know it is really bad, but Rach and I didn't even take a picture together with both of us in our caps and gowns. Maybe we can still take one. This was take the night of my graduation. The two graduates!

Alright I have to go eat dinner and get over to watch my puppy for the weekend.

It is a time to celebrate...

Friday night I had a wedding to go to. (2nd one of this year) It was very nice. Nicole and Temo, who I went to high school with, looked radiant! They are so in love and I wish them all the happiness in the world.

This past weekend we finally had some beautiful weather to enjoy. It really started feeling like summer. Rach and I laid out at her new pool on Sunday. It was gorgeous and we even got a little sunburned. I always think of Sicily when I get sunburned because I hope I will never be as sun burned as I was there.

Sunday night a bunch of the girls and I went to see SEX AND THE CITY the movie! It was fabulous!!! I was so excited I couldn't believe it was finally here. I can't wait to see it again. Hopefully I will get Stephanie to watch the shows with me and then by the time it comes out on DVD we can watch it together.
