Big girl

Bella is getting to be sooo big! She is 16 weeks and weighed 27 lbs at the vet today. She is sooo sweet and sits on command now. She is learning a lot from her big brother Mason. We leave her outside everyday now and I think Mason loves it. She definitely keeps him company and he loves having a play mate.

The big 2-9

So tonight at 10:15 I will officially turn 29. It really doesn't feel any different than 28. I had a great day complete with icecream cake and red velvet cake with the family, and dinner at Logans with friends. I'm sure everyone had a great time throwing peanuts at me. I found a few in my purse as I was leaving. I got a giftcard to Hobby Lobby, a few Old Navy tops, money, and the next three Harry Potter books. I have been neglecting The Chamber of Secrets due to the play I was in, but it is over and I am ready to dive back in to reading. I had an awesome birthday and now the countdown is on to the big 3-0!

My 15 minutes of fame

So it's finally over. What you ask...The scene I did with the community theatre-Five Girls Wearing the Same Dress by Alan Ball. (only it was just 3 girls wearing the same dress) It was a lot of fun. Each scene was about 15 minutes long. This was my first time on stage and I was a little nervous but as soon as I walked on stage (crazy bridesmaid hat and all) the nerves subsided. Tonight at Jan Dempsey there were eight scenes by different American playwrights. We were the 7th one...since there were a few adult themes in the play. After ours we were able to breath so we could watch the last one. All in all we remembered our lines and remembered to "break for laughs". I haven't decided if I will be auditioning for The Miracle Worker yet. I have until Monday to decide. But until then it will be my birthday this weekend so I have that to think about and look forward to.

Friends Forever

Today Mason's bed arrived from It is a cot that he can get on without having to lay on the concrete or the ground all day. I thinks he likes it....and so does Bella. She wants to do whatever he does. Tonight they have been playing tug of war with Red (Mason's pet monkey). They are getting along so well and I'm glad that Mason has someone to play with and keep him young.

Happy Early Birthday To Me!

I still have a few weeks before my birthday but I got a great early birthday present this morning. We had been looking at a car at the Nissan dealership that I liked and today we traded in my trusty Honda Civic for a white Nissan Altima. It is an '06and really spacy and comfy with leather seats. Apparently they are pretty popular b/c we saw 6 in our neighborhood on the way home. Lee said this will cover my birthday, Christmas, and anniversary...possibly even my next birthday! So I am taking a break right now from ebaying. We have been ebaying this afternoon and so far we have posted 21 items. Looks like I'll be doing a lot of this! But that's okay. It's worth it:)

Good morning

I have never been a morning person. In other words, I enjoy my sleep. But since Bella came into our home that hasn't happened. Usually around 6ish she starts yelping to go outside. The first morning we had her it was rough. But that has changed. I actually like getting up early now. I don't have to rush to get ready for work and can just relax. Once she goes outside she and Mason play for a good while and then I bring her back in and go to work. She usually doesn't mind this and is pretty worn out after playing. I can catch a few episodes of The Golden Girls which is always good. All in all we are adjusting pretty well and I think Mason is getting used to the idea that she is staying.
