Sometimes You Shouldn't Hyphenate Your Name

Someone emailed this to me and I had to share!

Sorry Everyone!

I finally got around to packing up the last of our winter clothes last week. Yeah, you heard that right- I waited until August to put away the winter clothes. It was so hot outside that I really just wanted to stay in and do something. I organized the drawers in Toby's dresser and took out all the cold weather clothes. I put all the shirts back in ROYGBIV order (just as my drawers always are) and made a pile for goodwill things. I went through the closet and took all the sweaters off their hooks. Then, I trekked over to Wal-mart and bought a new plastic bin.
I knew as I was packing all the stuff up that it wasn't a good idea.

So, what happens? It gets cold. I had to search out a sweater to wear the other day. How ridiculous, but I so expected that to happen.

One Seam Convertible Dress

I've been looking at this dress online for a few weeks now and really wanted to finally get around to making it. It can be worn in a whole combination of ways. Somehow we didn't get many back shots, but this should give you a good idea. Please ignore my wayward hair. I wan't planning a modeling shot. Joanns was having a sale on knits this week so I finally went down and spent $9 on my dress. I LOVE it! And so does Toby!


can be worn over jeans

Cool Dogs

At the end of June, I know I need to post more, we watched Viktor, my in-laws german shephard. For the most part it went OK. He never peeded in our house which surprised me because he seems to do that every time we visit and he really seems to like Rusty. Vik is really possesive of food, but for whatever reason he let Rusty eat out of his food bowl. They would just sort of switch bowls in the middle of eating. Unfortuatly, I had to switch them back so that I didn't end up with a sick Vik, but I thought it was cute. Vik, however, did not like Kona. I think that she may be a little to active for him in his old age. As long as we watched them it seemed to go OK. He only drew blood once! Anyways, we took pictures when he was here to give his Mom. I just thought I should share because they turned out cute. Rusty wasn't as cooperative so his picture isn't included.

Weird Wedding Ideas

I was driving to church Wednesday night and one of the people I was driving with was telling me that her wedding was going to leave people wondering a little because there were a few unconventional things. So, I asked what those were. Turns out she is having two bridesmaids and four groomsmen. Two of those groomsmen are her brothers. Um, I told her, that is just like my wedding was. So, maybe not so unique as she feared. Really there is a point to this story...

I was checking my email the other day and got an update from another blog I read. She posted about duct tape and had a link to a duck tape wedding dress ( Now that is unconventional and will leave people a little stunned. I wonder if my friend will consider this!

And, just for a little more fun-
