At Amanda's house watching a movie with her adorable puppies.
Hello blog, I missed you! I was talking to a friend over coffee last night about blogs and my blog, and I realized I haven't been posting very much lately and need to start again! I don't want to forget the fun things that are happening, and really love this little journal of our lives.
I love going over to my friend Amanda and her husband Martin's house. They have two great big Dobermans and one of them, Tara, loves to cuddle. She always waits until you tell her too, then she will leap up onto the couch and lay across your lap. If I'm not scratching Tara's tummy enough, she either licks me in the face or bumps me with her nose. I love that dog. Also, Martin and Amanda's house is a lot like ours. They live in the Avenues, and our houses are both really old with wood floors and a lot of charm.
We also went over to their house for dinner a few weeks ago. We brought salad and Amanda made the best vegetarian enchiladas and homemade guacamole.
Beautiful birthday flowers that Brian brought home for my birthday :)
When Brian and I were living in Saipan, a few of my friend and I would have a girls night every single Friday night. We always ordered pizza (and had the same delivery guy) and we always watched Pretty Little Liars. (Some of my favorite memories from Saipan!) My friend Anna still sends me letters signed by "A" and the week before my birthday I got a mysterious birthday card with lots of little A's in it! Hmm... wonder who it could have been from? :)
Here's another girls night at Jamie's from about a month ago. Our husbands went camping this night in the mountains and there was already snow on the ground. They asked us to go to, but already knew the answer would be no. I adore camping, but not when it's freezing cold temperatures. I've only done that once, in Palo Dura Canyon, and was so miserable and freezing all night long, I went and got in the car and turned on the heat just to get some sleep! I'm really glad Jamie and I stayed home and got to spend lots of time catching up and eating Starbucks pumpkin bread.
Seriously, have you guys ever tried cheese and crackers and cucumber slices? It's surprisingly the best food in the world and I ate like this whole plate.
