I just happen to have a few pictures with me…

Today I was totally rockin’ and rollin’ in my summer housewife mode…morning run, dog grooming, laundry, crafts, grocery shopping, typing out recipes, cleaning up a junk store jewel, printing out teacher binder stuff…just being overall *uber* productive.

My multi-tasking came to a bit of a grinding halt when my laptop was suddenly overcome with a malare-y, trojan-y, worm-y virus. One minue the computer is working, the next minute it is literally screaming at me. (True story…the virus made a screaming noise several times. Not cool.) Wouldn’t allow me to open anything.

Total buzz kill.

The goooooooood news is that my computer-degree husband came to my resue and cleaned everything up for me. It was not pretty, to say the least. (At one point the lecture I received about internet security he said the scan reported almost 700 threats against the computer. Yikes!) And it took him a while…which doesn’t leave me with much time to write today.

But I have a little something in my pocket that is perfect for a time like this.

Pictures of my Huxley baby! I’m such a proud puppy parent….he’s grown since I blogged about him last.

April 18th marked his 2nd birthday! My kids wrote him little birthday notes…and I forced him to wear a party hat. 😛

One of the best parts of summer is my Huxley snuggles!

I’ve been itching to get Hux a bow-tie for quiiiiiite a while now. After lots of searching and a Facebook poll, I finally settled on one that I love. He looks quite dashing, don’t ya think? (Hehe…it’s okay. I know not everyone gets the bowtie thing. But I *love* it!)

It takes me a bazillion shots to get a good picture of him in the bowtie. A photographer comes over to take pictures for a party and snaps this in one shot. Go figure! 😉

It’s puppy love for sure!

Look at that fat baby…he’s getting heavy!

huxley chill

Summer is here!

(And for the record, he hates the pool. I don’t even bother putting him in anymore because he just stands in one spot like a statue. Weirdo!)

He’s as quirky and full of attitude as ever…I enjoy having him as my little shadow!

Spring Catch-Up

Ah. Spring Break.

It took me a full weekend to recover from last week. I was worn smoooooth out. My main accomplishment those first few days was that I watched 5 movies. (Only one of them was really any good….that’s the way it goes when you play RedBox Roulette I guess.)

I did manage to resurface long enough to meet up with a couple of girlfriends to enjoy the beautiful weather with lunch & antiques…I am already loving this spring-y weather!

After church on Sunday I loaded up the car with this handsome guy and went down for a few days of R&R at my parents house.


Thought it was going to be my husband, didn’t ya? 😉

Both of my parents are teachers as well, so it was same song different verse. I basically just moved my lazy rear end from my couch to theirs. I did finish reading a heartwrenchingly good book…Yahshua’s Bridge. It is a sequel to The Master’s Wall, and I’m not exaggerating when I say it was one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. It was so good that I’ve continued to think on it since finishing it, and have been challenged in my faith by it’s story. Definite must read!

While I was there we celebrated my Dad’s birthday. His only request was that I not make him a sprinkle cake….so we went with a delicious german chocolate cake instead. 🙂 I love him so much…more and more each year…and I’m proud to call him my daddy!

Since arriving home, I’ve been attacking our house with a vengeance. Spring cleaning, getting ready for a garage sale, making lists, paying bills, grocery shopping….all amidst napping and sleeping in. Gotta keep our priorities straight here. *wink*

Tomorrow continues with errands and such, then Mom is coming here for a few days of shopping and hanging out. Hooray!

So yep…that’s Spring Break 2013, Heather style. Nothing glamorous or overly exciting…just full of family, friends, resting, and catching up on life. And to be honest, it’s *exactly* what I’ve been needing. 🙂
