I love pillows. Throw pillows. Decorative, fancy pillows. All pillows. I recently purchased a few new ones for the Florida apartment. Excited!





Out with the Ladies!

I went to Bloomington on Thursday to meet Dawn for lunch and shopping. Well, lunch and Urban Outfitters. Got a great throw pillow on clearance and a couple of great clearance tops. I love sales! :)

Dawn and I came back to Indy for dinner and drinks with Christina. I am gonna miss these two so much when I'm in Florida. COME VISIT!

Dawn and I-

Tini and I-



This is one of my adorable nieces at her 1st tball game-

This is the squirrel that torments the dogs-

This is how Kona snuggles-

This is how Sydney snuggles-

The dogs enjoyed an evening snack-

Took the dogs for a walk and Kona couldn't even make it to the sofa-

Relaxation Station

Coffee. French Press. Cream and Sugar. I need a french press-

These are some of the things I do while I dogsit. Drink coffee, read books, and write in my journal-

Over the weekend...

Henry was here Saturday and Sunday... he is such an anxious dog. Any other dog would be totally excited about going to a place where he could stay outside all day. Not Henry. He whined and stood there and didn't have any fun. Even with Sydney and Kona. What is his problem?

Leo was here on Sunday so we walked the dogs-

We also snuggled with the dogs-

When Leo left, Henry needed a lot of attention-

Puppy Love

I've been hanging out in Indy for 4 days now. Still going well. I love "having" a backyard. Waking up in the morning and bringing my coffee out to the deck. Sun. Birds. Dogs. I need to get me one of these house things...

Henry came for a playdate. The dogs got a lot of exercise-

The dogs are tired from all of their exercise-

I think Sydney and Henry fell in love-

I'm on a mini-vacation. Spending ten days in Indy dog-sitting for friends who are in Ireland! Oh, how I would love to be overseas right now. Can't wait for my next trip! Gotta start saving now.

Anyway. It was really nice today. Spent most of the day reading outside while the dogs ran around. Not looking forward to the next week - rain everyday! Good thing Angelia and Jason have a whole library here! And Leo gets on me for have a few overflowing bookshelves...

I'm watching these cute pups: Sydney (white) and Kona

I've decided to start a personal blog.

The only other time I have blogged was during the summer of 2010 while traveling the UK - and it was fun! I've created this blog so that I can share photos, stories, tidbits, funny things I see, etc... I will soon be moving to Gainesville, Florida and will be even further away from those I love... You can follow me here to keep up-to-date with my life. I know my parents are going to love this! :)
