My dog Rocky wins the prize for "barkiest" dog on the planet!! Oh...my...goodness. He is so verbal! He wishes he could talk so bad. He makes noises all the time. Sometimes it is funny, but other times it drives me crazy! Last night we had a thunderstorm in the middle of the night. He HATES thunder! Jack Russells are very high strung and he just freaks out whenever he hears thunder. Every single time it thundered last night(for about 2 hours), he would bark! Needless to say, it was a long night!
He also hates the vacuum cleaner. This morning I was trying to vacuum and he was just barking up a storm at the vacuum cleaner. His barking is so loud! I usually have to put him in another room just to vacuum the house. Goodness...he is a mess!
Ashley and Laura are gone this week to the beach with my brother Brent and his family. Ashley has been nannying for them this summer and they took her and Laura with them for the week to help out. Lindy stayed home since she was just gone last week. So, today, she and I tried a new restaurant that was just built near our house...Firehouse Subs.
I used to go to one near Steve's office and loved it, so I am glad there is one near by now. It was really good and we had fun hanging out together. Lindy is dog sitting for my parents this week while they are on a trip. So all I have at home this week is Mark! Our house is so quiet. Hmmmm...not sure if I like this! I need to get used to it though because it is about to be like this every day. Sniff sniff!
Tonight Steve and I had a date night. Here we are on our way out...
We used a gift certificate we had to PF Changs. I also happened to have a movie gift card, so we went to see Public Enemies with Johnny Depp. I really liked it. Johnny Depp is just the best "bad boy" ever! He plays John Dillinger in this movie and does an awesome job.
Okay...I need your help. Ashley is trying to get the centerpieces for her reception ready. One of her options is just to use fall flowers. But a friend of ours has offered to loan us 32 Pottery Barn candle lanterns like the large one in this picture....
They would be so pretty on the tables with little votives around them. But we are trying to think about what to put in them or around them on the tables?? We were thinking maybe acorns, berries, fall leaves, etc. Any ideas?? The wedding is in November. If you have any ideas or links, send them to me!! Thank you bloggy friends!
