Fair time!

We went to the fair this weekend and it was so much fun! We loved looking at the 4-H part with all of the livestock. The rabbits were my favorite :) They even had guinea pigs there. We hit up the ferris wheel and a couple of fun houses. And of course you have to do the "fair food." I had a tough time making my decision. It was between the following deep-fried goodies: pop tart, oreo, twinkie, s'mores, and klondike. Next year I'm going for the butter!
My look-a-like in the rabbit world:

Blog spotlight

Just checking in to say HI! And wanted to share another cool blog that I like.

Take a look at: Annette Tatum
She's a home linens designer but does decorating and other cool stuff. My friend, Katie, and I went to a book signing and got to meet her. She was really nice and down-to-earth. Again, it's another blog that stimulates my creativity. She has neat inspiration pics and other cool ideas for your home.

Going "savage"

Got a spray tan today and holy crap! Check out my Daily Mugshot from today. This is the tannest I've ever been. Yes! (Btw just learned the term "savage" to describe a super dark tan.)

Blog Love

After a conversation I had today at Paper Tales, I decided I would share some of my favorite blogs, just in case anyone's interested. I had been thinking about doing this since I have found some pretty cool one's. Some are kind of random but they all feed my creative side in some way. Plus I think I'm kind of nosey and like reading about people's lives :) hee hee! I think I will just add them in here and there, and probably just take them alphabetically off of my 'Bookmark' list (yes I am crazy and have them alphabetized).

A Beautiful Mess

I love this girl, Elsie's retro style. The photos she shares, her art, and just her look in general are a creative inspiration for me.

Our Sunday:

Betsy wasn't around for the video, she took Clemmy's place in the sun :)

We had a nice relaxing day that started out with delicious coffee and the Swap Meet and ended with sushi with friends :)

Meet Kramer!

This is the newest member of our family:

Isn't he the cutest thing?! My brother and his girlfriend just got him, he's 2.5 months old now (I think). I love him already.
He looks like his cousin, Cassie, my sister and her husband's dog:

She's almost 2 years old now!
Now my siblings will finally understand our obsession with our dogs :)

Garden 2010

Here are some pics of our garden taken a couple of weeks ago. So far we've only harvested some jalapenos and Fresno chilis. But we have some Roma tomatoes that should be ready before long :)

Our Sauce & Salsa garden:

Our container garden with the rest of our herbs, including the Lemon Basil, yum!

Basset Party!!

Finally uploaded all of our pics. I'll start from the most recent and work my way back.
We attended the San Diego Basset Rescue Picnic yesterday. It was awesome to see all of the other Bassets. There were probably about 100 there. So nice to have the slobber, droopy red eyes and howling accepted as normal :)

Chris and Clemmy.

Leo the 110 lb. basset!!

A sweet, silvery old one :)

What up?

Couple of quick things since I've been a slacker lately (sorry, having the hubby home is a distraction :) ).
My new fav herb: lemon basil. Bought the plant on a whim at the nursery and have been using it in salads and sauces. It is amazing! Tastes kind of like lemon grass but with a touch of basil. Yum :)
My new worst movie: Wolfman. I'm trying to sit through it right now but it totally sucks. Disappointment b/c I {heart} Benicio Del Torro.
My latest splurge to see in the theater: Sex and The City of course! Saw it with my best gals last weekend. Loved it! Completely entertaining but still like the first one better.
My latest house project: removing two trees (pics to come). Our house looks so bare now!! But they had to go as they were interfering with our foundation, etc.

Btw, finally got the camera cord and will download pics to share tomorrow. Also want to share pics of my bro's puppy (the cutest ever!).
