So out of shape!

Oh My Gosh!!

So since I don't work in retail anymore and I'm not on my feet all day I feel like a sloth. And I've also put on weight, which I expected I would by sitting at a desk all day. I asked Andy to go for a walk with me this evening at the BE park. We went and probably walked 3 miles or so. I'm so tired and I know I'm going to be sore tomorrow. It was good for me though. Andy's stride is bigger so I had to work harder to keep up with him. I feel better about myself though. Hopefully we can work up to a jog. I really want to join the gym, but I want to make sure we are going to dedicate ourselves to this before we spend the money.

I'm going to go rest my shins now. I'll keep you updated.

I just thought I would take a minute and let everyone know that Brunsie is almost fully litter trained. He pooped a little on the floor this morning and I reminded him of his box and he hopped right in!! Way to go Brunsie!!!!!

Bunny treats work miracles!!

Weekend update

Friday I went to a crop at Kathie's house. I finished our guest book and started sorting pictures for the wedding album. It fells so good to finally have that started. It has been a long time coming. I also made desert for the night. I broke in my new citrus slice pan with my "lemon zinger" cake (Andy's name). It was a big hit!

Saturday we had our taxes done. Let's just say we're glad to not have to claim 1099 income after this year. I'm anxious to see how much $ we get from the Economic Stimulus Plan. After the tax pain we headed to Winston. My wedding band was supposed to be ready to pick up. It wasn't. They were very appologetic and we got a gift card from them so that was good. We also brought back two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts, and the hot sign was on!! We went to look at furniture at Ashley Home Furniture store. They promptly told us that they couldn't deliver to us in Banner Elk and that we would have to go to Hickory to order.

So Sunday we went to Ashley in Hickory and we ordered a new couch!! I'm so excited! It's a brown leather sectional (not a cheesy one) with a storage ottoman. I'll post pictures when it comes in. It should be here in 2-4 weeks.

And of course I have to include a new picture of Brunsie from the weekend. Because he is so darn cute and I take his picture whenever I get a chance. Sunday he was chewing on the tag on the bottom of a chair in the living room. He wasn't hurting anything, but the sound was getting on my nerves and the only way I could get him to stop was to turn the chair upside down. The next thing I know he had jumped up on the bottom of the chair to get to the tag. He is a persistent little thing! I couldn't get to my camera in time, he slid off pretty quickly. But I did get these little gems.

Brunsie Gets a Bath!

It's Saturday and I feel like crap. I have a stomach bug. I feel a lot better today than I did last night, but we are supposed to go eat out with Andy's parents and I don't know if I'm up to it. I hope I get better soon. This sucks!

We cleaned Brunswik's cage this morning and I had gotten some bunny shampoo earlier in the week so I decided to get him clean while I was at it. We had put him in the tub before just to see what he would do. He didn't seem to mind, but this time he did. He was not happy. He jumped out and grabbed onto my shirt and wouldn't let go. He looked like a little wet rat. His fluffy fur adds a lot of size to that little frame! I don't know that we will try that again, unless he gets himself REALLY dirty. He is still trying to dry off. But I think he's playing the victim a little. He doesn't groom himself unless he notices we are watching. What a little stinker!

Here are some wet Brunsie pics.

How could I forget??

Two more things about my birthday! Andy got me a waffle iron! And I forgot to post these pics. Daffodils are always in bloom on my birthday so Mamaw puts some in a vase for me from her garden. I love them!

I'm a year older!

It was a great birthday. I had a lot of fun with everyone in Winston. I got a lot of cool new stuff at Williams Sonoma. I could buy that whole store! I didn't find a bedding set, which was the goal, but I think I know what I want. Andy and I went to Outback and it was really good. I have two cakes. Mamaw made me a chocolate cake (the best ever) and Andy made me a carrot cake. He made the cake from a mix and the icing from scratch. He even piped a big carrot on top. It was so sweet. And they are both delicious. I'm exhausted though. I can't remember the last time I drove that much in one day. I feel like I might pass out... Here are some pics.

Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday dear me-e!

Happy April Fools Day!!

Anyone play any good pranks today? Sadly, I have never been a good prankster, but I have always been very gullible.

It's two days until my birthday! I'm so excited. I'm going to Winston to see Julie and Andy is making me a cake. He bought me a present a couple of weeks ago and then last night he announced that he was taking it back and going to get something different. He wouldn't tell me what the original present was though, that's annoying.

So yesterday I went into Bath & Body Works just to say hello and I came out with new products. It's a sickness, really. They have this new temptations scent called hey sugar. It is so flippin' awesome. It smells just like the lemon cake I make (Andy calls it Lemon Zinger). It's heaven. I took a shower last night just so I could use it! I also got a wallflower because they were on sale and who can pass that up? And I got a free item, just some really thick lotion because at this point my whole body looks like sand paper. When is spring and warm weather ever going to come? The trees are still not budding, but this morning when I drove up to work there was a daffodil in bloom outside the office door. Hooray! Give me two months or so and I'll be ready for the cold again.

Also, while I was at the mall yesterday I went into Panera to get a salad. They have brought back the chicken bacon dijon panini. I could make up a song about this sandwich it is so good and they only make it a few months out of the year. So you know what this means... I'll be spending a lot of $$ in Panera until they discontinue it again. But it's worth it because it is the BEST sandwich they have EVER made. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!
