Outdoor Shoot, Book Club, 11 Miles

Thanks, friends! I'm sorry for all of the puppy talk and PROMISE this will be the last post with multiple pics of her... for a while. (That is until her and Reuben get to be absolute besties and I can do photo shoots of them together!!) Yes, I'm a psycho really good mom. Here goes:

Looking cute!
Frolicking alongside big brother Reuben!
She mirrors his EVERY move
A reflective moment (and yes, I'm thrilled that she took so well to clothes just like her big brother - she almost bounces around more when she's dressed - loves it!)
Tongue out! Took me years to catch Reuben like this!

Okay, okay, I know. :) Other than taking pictures and looking at pictures, yesterday was another super busy day at work, with a 4-mile walk in between, then a trip to the grocery store and a rush home to see the puppers! Definitely better than Monday, although i'm still feeling a bit overwhelmed which I do. not. like. I know it will slow down soon - I see the light!! Anywho (mini rant over) - last night we just chilled, cooked 4 servings of bacon ranch slowcooker chicken and 4 servings of fiesta chicken - yum! Then we had a glass of wine, watched an epsiode of Castle and called it a night.

Today went much better - aside from Remy's 7 a.m. grooming appointment. Oy. And the weather pretty much sucked. At least I got in a 5-mile walk at lunch and TONS of work, before heading home to the family (1-hour commute in rain... again), and then to book club at Shana's with Shana, Dev, Mon and Stacy!! SO fun: We got to see Devon and how much her little baby is growing (she's almost 20 weeks pregnant!); We got to hear all about Shana's new job and learn more about her new pregnancy news; I got to bring the pups and introduce Remy to the girls; Mon updated us on her house and Andy's job; Stacy and Ashley were on FIRE - cracked me up all night; Danielle was too funny - one of three of us to read the book this time (I know... we kinda sucked this month) and she didn't like it too much. Anywho - great night, great meal cooked by Shana, tons of laughs (everything from adlibbing what HGTV people were saying and talking about ghosts and EMPs, to discussing how we would hide drugs if we were drug mules - you know, randomly hilarious conversations). Great night! And the pups did great - Reuben bounced around happily the whole night, and Remy slept on Shana's side, and Danielle's side - well, she slept the whole time! LOL

Q: Do you have a lot of "girl nights"? I LOVE our book club and no matter how tired or busy I am, I enjoy my monthly visit with these ladies (yes, I usually see them at other times throughout the month, but it's great to all get together and catch up!).

Q: Do you know what an EMP is? I had never heard of it until tonight - apparently several girls in the book club are big into ghosts! LOL Like told crazy stories and freaked me out! haha

I fully support you posting lots and lots of puppy pics! If I could figure out how to post pics without them being all crazy, I would do the same thing.

Awww- cute puppers pictures. You know I do not mind one bit if you keep them coming :) Glad you had fun with the ladies. I love girl time. At least a few times a week, I make time to hang with the ladies. Helps keep me sane :)

The only reason that I know what an EMP is is that they have the Atlanta Ghost Hunters on the Bert Show in the morning sometimes. But I forget what it stands for.

Puppy is adorable.

I've always thought book clubs would be really fun!! I love to read, but whenever I want to talk about books with college kids in a social setting they give me a funny look, haha :) Love the pics- so cute that she takes so well to clothes!!

Thanks you guys! :) I really do love the pup pups!

Tyler: You must figure it out, lady!

Erica: That's great you get together with the girls so much - wow! I wish I could get together that often - very cool.

Lee: haha yes, that came up too!! so funny! Thanks!

Gabriela: hehe I know what you mean - people can be weird about books! haha Yes, she does. I know not everyone's cool with clothes but it seems like the little ones love it and feel special! :)

Awww I want a doggy! Feel free to continue posting pupper pictures -- I will live vicariously. :)

I LOVE girls' nights. I have a book club (about to be two), a knitting night, and an out to dinner night with girls from work. I love my Hubs, but it is nice to have other people to spend time with. And it makes the time I get to spend with him even better because we've spent some time apart.

OMG, I officially have puppy fever! Precious!

Cute pics, keep on sharing!

Yes, I try to get dinner and have lots of girls' nights with my friends. We like to catch up and have dinner/wine while watching shows we all enjoy. Sometimes it's tough when you have different friends that don't know each other as well so it's nice you can get everyone together.

I think I've heard of EVP (electronic voice phenomena) that the Ghost Hunters share on the Bert Show...isn't EMP electromagnetic something? I thought that had to do with nuclear stuff, but i guess it could be pulses given off by spirits or something? Not sure...

Are you dressing the pups up for Halloween?

I don't mind the cute puppy pics! Your fur children are adorable. :)

Definitely love getting together with the ladies. Even a phone chat is instant day brightner too.

Um, I'm dying at cute-overload on the puppy pictures!! ;-)
And I LOVE me the girlfriend time!! I love going to chick flicks or just gabbing with my girls over some sushi. This is what makes life grand. Totally.
