Encore shares his weekend...

Hi there,

Encore here. Mom is letting me write, since I was getting jealous of all the other famous dogs getting there own internet time.

This week has had tons of outside play for my mom and dad. Usually, they just let me out to play with the dog next door but I guess they were getting jealous of my time so they decided to join. Mom doesn't last as long as dad though. Something about bug bites all over her legs and those cicadas. In fact she hates those things so much she starts screaming and waving her hands like a crazy lady whenever I go to chase them. I keep trying to show her they taste good but I don't think she is buying it. Even Dad tried to convince her they are a delicacy in some countries. Still she screams. I guess I can't blame her though. She did get attacked by two of them on our walk the other day.

Speaking of walking, that is my new favorite thing. I use to be scared of leash because I thought it meant getting in the car. But now I get excited. The only bad thing about it is mom and dad have a hard time keeping up and they are heavy to pull. It sometimes feels like I am walking them then the other way around. Except for that time mom had to drag me down the street because I wanted to stop and get a better look at this dog coming up to me. I had never seen anything like it. It was 10 times my size and had the longest nose and tail compaired to me. Mom kept calling it a horse the whole time and then I had to listen to her complain the whole way home how upset she was she didn't have her camera (story of her life).

Dad has been great though. I love having him home to play with, plus I think mom really likes it too. Not to mention he can throw the ball better then her when we play. He did try to steal my seat during movie night next to mom. Not sure what he was thinking. He knows me mom always get the couch together and he gets the chair. I mean geez I let you sleep next to her in the bed, is that not enough old man?! I let it go this time but next time I am not so sure.

Well, thanks for letting me share my side of the story. This was fun. Maybe mom will let me do it again.

Farmers Market.

Me and My dear Friend Megan, went to the famers market this weekend. I love farmers markets more then anything. Maybe, because they make me think of what street vendors would be like in Europe, but either way I think they are the best.

Good friends and Good food!

Nothing beats having over a favorite friend and discussing everything from books, clothing, future plans, and boys. All while making the sweetest chocolate strawberries you will ever eat.

The most relaxing weekend.. ever! (and an encore story that will make you scream)

Hello Loves, I know, I know... where have I been, your thinking! I have to say I loved this past few days. I took a break from blogging, my camera for the most part, the computer, the t.v., facebook and so on. I enjoyed it so much! Sometimes you just have to step away and relax. Which is exactly what I did!

I spent the past few days with my nose stuck in books, cooking, and telling stories with my Nana, who came to visit me. It was lovely considering the weather has been awful and chilly here.

I made a pot roast in our new crock pot (which I am in love with) and in return Guitar Hero took me on a little date to the movies (which we never do.. mainly because I am not a fan of theaters but sometimes its a nice thing to do together). We saw something borrowed, I just read the book (which of course was better) but we laughed till we cried in some parts. We might have even had so much fun on our little movie date that we are considering going twice this week and catching water for elephants. Anyone seen it yet?

O, and my nana made our favorite pound cake when she visited... we are like seriously in love with this recipe!!!!

As for a story that will make you scream... Encore went out for is regular potty break right before bed. When he had returned to the porch with what appeared to be a stick in his mouth my nana went to grab it and quickly realized it was.... A SNAKE!!!! Needless to say there was lots of screaming!!!!

While I am trying to get out of my lazy mood...

You can enjoy this lovely picture of my baby, Encore. Ok, I am not being lazy.. I did just clean my whole house to the point of vacuuming my curtains... yes, I am superwoman this week! Then I stuck my noise in a book and can't seem to get out of it long enough to post pictures and blog. However, I am almost done with it so I promise to back tomorrow... if not later tonight.

Mother's Day

I would like to say Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there but mostly to the two women above. My mother and Guitar Hero's Mother. Two very amazing, caring, loving, classy women. They are two wonderful examples of mothers for me to look up to one day, if we ever decide to to have children and I am proud to have both of them in my life.

Boy or Girl, that is the question?

I had totally forgotten about this picture from when my sissy visited a few weeks ago. This was while we were shopping in target, we had made our way to the baby/kid section. I love these sections in stores but I always feel weird without a kid or a baby bump thankfully, I had her next to me to able to ewww and awww over all the cute little outfits.

This pregnancy of hers has been lots of fun, since they have decided to wait to find out the sex of the baby. I feel like it makes that phone call I will get even more exciting and special because I will be very anxious to hear if it's a boy or girl.

Guitar Hero and me have discussed if we ever decided to have kids if he would want to know the sex...he said "yes, no way I would want to wait" then again he hates surprises. I however, would love to wait to find out the sex. Maybe, If we do have kids he can find out and I will wait... he just better not spoil it for me (which actually could really work, since he is good at keeping his mouth shut, I on the other hand would let it slip out)

How about you all... would you want to wait or know? or did you wait or find out early?

Strawberry Fields, Forever...

Yay, for sunny days! Since the weather is actually starting to dry up me and Guitar Hero decided to take advantage of it by picking strawberries today. Did you know strawberries are my favorite fruit? Well, they are, I tell ya!

Now, we have lots of juicy, big strawberries to use in many recipes. We are thinking... smoothies, chocolate covered strawberries, and just cut up on salads. I am so excited about our yummy finds today.

Never say never...

last week during the horrible storms the south faced we were trapped indoors, in fear of a tornado passing thru. So, to keep our minds of it, me and Guitar Hero opened up a puzzle he had gotten for Christmas. The rule was, if we opened it up we had to finish it that day. Now, I don't know about you but I have never finished a huge puzzle in day... to me that was just crazy. And since I decided to share with him that I thought he was crazy it made it even more a reason for him to make sure it got done.

After starting around noon and finishing up around 10 that night, only taking a 45min break for dinner. We can proudly say we finished that puzzle. I can also say, that I saw black and white swirls for days after... never again!

P.S. Thank you all for the prayers... my brother is being released from the hospital today. We are all very happy!

Not the weekend I planned for...

Over the weekend a lot of things happened. Things you are never really ready for..

On Saturday, I got a phone call from my dad saying our family cat of 19years was put down. It was something we all knew was coming soon but you never want to think about. She was very much loved and spoiled so it helped knowing her life was a good life but it will be weird not seeing her when I visit my parents. RIP, Miss Agatha.

Then on Sunday morning I got another phone call from my dad saying, my brother had been in a car wreak and was air lifted to the hospital. Talk about putting your life in prospective! Thankfully, he is ok but without his seat belt this would have been a much different day. He is in a lot of pain and was cut up and bruised really bad. They thought he had broken his collarbone and his hip but that looks to be ok. I am hoping they release him from the hospital today but we are still waiting to hear. I could not imagine my life without my brother. He is amazing person and my rock of support. I am so very thankful for him and our close relationship.

So, with that being said. Everyone just needs to go tell someone they love them. Because you really never know what can happen in a blink of an eye. This weekend and been a real eye opener for me and made me thankful for all the people that I have in my life.... including my lovely readers.
