wedding day

my baby girl, aka daughter #2, got married saturday and bailey not only attended the wedding, i carried her the aisle. the wedding attire was formal, so she wore a gorgeous handmade dress.


it was a white lace corset style dress with a tulle skirt accented with silver glitter. she was gorgeous.


mid way through the wedding bailey already pooped and by the end of the evening, she was done.

back in so cal

the last time bee visited, it was because i was throwing a bridal shower for daughter #2. and now she is back because the wedding is saturday! i can hardly believe it. it seems like just yesterday, i was telling y'all that she was engaged, but it's actually been a year! where does the time go?


bee is oblivious to what the next few days will hold. she is just happy to be back in california.

drive thru

hmm. it's 8pm and it's cold. we don't drink coffee at night so what are we doing at the coffee bean?

"do you have burgers in there?"

sorry bailey, no burgers here, but they do have a delicious hot chocolate! perfect for a chilly night.

clean up on aisle 9

at first glance, you might not even notice bailey amongst the disaster we found in homegoods yesterday. there were toys strewn everywhere. i've never seen it this bad. and it wasn't just the pet department. it was the whole store!
people, if you drop something, pick it up! don't just leave it on the floor. and parents, if your children are playing in the store and making a mess, teach them how to behave in public. this is a store, not a playground.
sorry for the rant, i just don't understand how people can be so messy. ugh.

paraskevidekatriaphobia

can you believe that is actually a word? it's quite a mouthful. paraskevidekatriaphobia is the fear of friday the 13th. not to be confused with triskaidekaphobia, which is a fear of the number 13.

"huh?"

fun fact: did you know the 13th falls on a friday only twice this year? the next friday the 13th is in july.

checking p-mail

going for a walk is an excellent form of exercise, but more importantly, it's the time when bailey checks her p-mail.


and if you think p-mail is only found at trees, you would be wrong. she also found some amongst the shrubbery!

unicorn or chihuahua? #tbt

tbt to january 2015, when bailey's shadow looked more like a unicorn than a chihuahua.

project manager

how was your weekend? we had perfect gardening weather yesterday, so we spent the day in the backyard. as you can see our honeysuckle has gotten completely out of control. trimming this beast just seems to motivate it to grow even bigger.

[did you notice our little visitor on the wall? he is the neighborhood cat that has been snooping around our property lately.]


of course bailey was right there rooting us on and making sure the project was done properly and in a timely manner.


"keep up the good work. you're almost done!"

#tot is contagious

uh oh, i think i'm coming down with a case of tot. i hear it's contagious so be careful out there. i'm pretty sure i caught it from bailey because she suffers from chronic tot. ;)

let it rain

bailey enjoyed sitting at the front window yesterday, watching the rain fall. it wasn't nearly the amount of rain that was forecasted but we'll gladly take whatever we're given.

march 2011 #tbt

a few days ago, facebook reminded me of what bailey looked like in 2011. this was taken just 4 months after we rescued her. when we found her she was emaciated and weighed only 3.3 pounds. we don't know what she'd been through in her short life but you can see in her eyes, it wasn't good. her eyes tell it all. i don't know who could have treated her so poorly. it makes me sad and it makes me angry.
but today she is a healthy 4.4 pounds and the sadness has long left her eyes. she is our little princess and has everything a proper princess could ever need or want. and most importantly, she is loved.

adios winter

old man winter has left the building and bailey & i are thrilled!
we can finally get out and work in the garden (after this next rain storm passes). i have a couple of projects i've been thinking about for a while. hopefully this is the year they become a reality. how 'bout y'all? any projects planned?
