Off To Vermont....

I'm headed off to Vermont tomorrow afternoon. My to-do list for tomorrow is only getting LONGER, so I probably won't have any time to get on here. My cousin is getting married Saturday.

Since we are actually flying in and out of Boston (we're going to a very small city in Vermont that only has a regional airport), we are actually spending all day Monday in Boston before heading home early Tuesday morning.

I'm so excited! I've only driven through Vermont a couple times (yes we bought syrup), and I haven't been to Boston since I lived there (I was less than a year old though, so I remember NOTHING about it!). I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share with you guys when I get back :)

Someone isn't happy...

Totally random...I just wanted to share this picture of Scooter from the other day.

I took him to get his yearly shots and while we were waiting for his test results, he just sat there staring at me. If he could talk, I think he would have been saying something like "Mom, what just happened in there and why did you make me go through that? That's really not cool, and I don't ever want to do that again."

I had to bribe him with a treat to get him to stop staring at me. He can be such a snob sometimes. On the way out, he pooped by the door. I had to go ask the woman for a plastic baggy to clean it up. Guess that shows me who's boss here.



It's been over two weeks since my birthday, and I Just realized I forgot to show you guys what D got me.

Let me start by saying, I don't like surprises. If it's a real surprise that I know nothing about, then I love it. However, if there is a special occasion or someone tells me "I have a surprise for you" then I can't stand it. I just want to know! I love surprising people though so go figure.

Anyways, back to the birthday presents.

I've been lusting over a tortoise Michael Kors watch. I didn't have a specific one in mind. I already have a two-tone MK watch, so I wanted tortoise because it was totally different. I'm usually not very good at being subtle about what I want. I send Dustin an email listing 8-10 (or more) present ideas. He usually ends up getting something off of the list.

This year was no exception.

The first thing on my list was a tortoise MK watch and guess what showed up on my birthday??

That's right, this little beauty. I still have to get a link or two taken out, so I've only worn it once. I'm so excited because it's so completely different from my other watch.  

That's what my other watch looks like. As you can see, they are totally different. 

D also got me this little sweatshirt from Victoria's Secret. If there's one thing to know about me, it's that I love my comfy clothes.

Also, this was one of the things my parents got me:

Yup. I'm definitely getting older. However, I am really excited to get to using this! I really enjoy cooking and have had my eye on one of these babies for awhile!

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

After getting back from my trip to Nashville and the farm, I had a surprise engagement party for one of my best friends, Mandy.

The proposal happened on the 18th green at a golf course here in Memphis. Everyone was waiting inside the clubhouse to surprise them after she said "Yes!" He even had a short fireworks display that we could all see from the clubhouse for right after the proposal. It was such a special night celebrating two amazing people.

This sign was out on the green where the proposal took place.
Obviously the answer was YES!

The groom to be

I am so happy for the two of them. D and I are going to dinner and a movie with them tomorrow night, and I can't wait to see them again!
