The New Mailbox...

I have had a list of little chores that I have been meaning to get to all summer. It seems like I just never had the time. One of my little chores was to get a new mailbox. Seems simple enough. But as usually it is not that simple for me. Our last mailbox was a unique memory from our wedding. A friend had beautifully painted a wooden mailbox to match our fall themed wedding. We used this as our card box. It was on display at our wedding at the front table and collected all the card that people had brought for us. From there I immediately hung it on our new house that we moved into right after our wedding. I loved that mailbox, but it did not like the weather. After the last four years of hanging outside in all the elements it had begun took look quite yucky. So as you see I could not just replace this mailbox with just any old mailbox. I was determined to make one with my own unique touch. I bought a plain white mailbox and using my cricut I cut out the letters of our last name in the cricut wall vinyl. I used the Storybook and Home accents cartridge. I am not sure how it will hold us in the weather but I am interested to see. I will keep you all posted.

Lucky Number 7... Here's hoping for 8!

I am so excited! I just received a call from our breeders to tell me that Tucker just won his 7th Best in Specialty. He is competing in Minniapolis with our Breeders. We are all very excited. It is an outdoor show with two specialty shows on Thursday & Friday, and All Breed shows on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The weather there is definately not the best for an outdoor show. It is pouring rain and a Tornado touched down in downtown Minniapolis this morning. But through it all Tucker showed his best. I guess I should explaing that a specialty show is a show where only one breed competes. Tucker just turned four and he is ranked number 2 in Canada. We are pretty proud of him!

Happy Birthday To Me!!!

Well I celebrated my 28th Birthday today. It was a great day! My hubby made me a wonderful breakfast of Blueberry pancakes with whip cream. Yummy! I think Rhys enjoyed them more then I did. I was so excited that my hubby, who I swear the majority of the time never listens, surprised me with a hair dryer. I know some of you out there are making a questionable face at this. But what you need to understand is that about three weeks ago I had breifly mentioned in passing that my hair dryer wasn't working properly. I never in a million year thought that he would have remembered that or even bothered to hear it in the first place. I love when you get those little surprise that remind you that not everything you say goes in one ear and out the other and just maybe they actually do listen to you when you aren't directly looking at them and using their name. I also got to spend the day with two of my girlfriends and scrapbook for the whole evening. It was fabulous and I enjoyed every minute of it.

My First Post

Here is my first post. I guess for me this is one of those jumping off a bridge moments. You know the line that your mother used to always tell you. "Well if Billy jumped off a bridge would you?" All of my friends have started blogs in the last couple of weeks. I couldn't figure out why. Then I started reading them. What fun it was reading bits and pieces of people's lives. I thought I have to jump of the bridge and join them. It is kind of fun. You have no idea who will read it but for some reason you just don't care. I don't find that I have much time on my hands for extra things but what is one more item on the plate. I loved creating the page and had wuite a few laughs with some girls at work while trying to come up with a name. I found this one quite fitting as I tend to talk quite a bit on a normal day but I talk a lot more and quite a bit faster when I am really happy or excited about something. Oh who am I kinding I talk a lot all the time no matter what the situation. And in some situation it has gotten me into a lot of trouble! Well look out blog world here I come ....
