Diva Dog

Elle has been so much fun to have for the past 7 weeks. Dave and I love to play with her. Everything she does makes us either laugh, or oo and ahh over how cute she is. I have dubbed Elle as a superstar because she is totally spoiled, every kid on the street is a fan, and she has her own personal paparazzi aka Dave. Here are a few of his best shots..
When we first got her she was small, she could fit all for legs on my slipper. Now she eats my slippers.

She likes to play and in the yard, and after being attacked by the fence around the garden, has finally learned to leave the tomato plants alone.She loves to cuddle!
More cuddling.
I told you Dave stocks her, she can't even sleep in peace, but this is a pretty cute one.

And unlike most dogs she loves water and a good bath. When I water the garden she runs through the sprinkler, and while taking a shower she begs to come in. Here is a video of her first bath.

To celebrate our anniversary we had a lovely dinner at home Wednesday night. I set a table that would havae made Sandra Lee proud, and Dave surprised with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. They smell so good! Dinner was also great! I made these great beef pops courtesy of Giada De Laurentis. (If you are looking for a good beef marinade this one is one to try!)

On Friday Dave had off work and so did I , yay for spring break, so we dropped Elle off at my parents and headed up to Flagstaff. It was so great to go back to where we first met. We visited all our favorite places, reminisced, and relaxed. It was a great way to celebrate three years of marriage.

The Specs

Dave is always talking about the specs for his car so I thought I'd share the specs for my garden:
144 sq ft of corn; five rows, 60 1 inch sprouts
20sq ft raised bed; 2 fall planted spinach plants, 4 fall lettus plants, a few spare carrots, two cucumber sprouts (would have been more in not for the culprit in the background), two out of control parsley plants that I have no idea what to do with.
20 sq ft in the ground; 1 fall roma tomato plant (producing much fruit but have no idea how it tastes since one vegetarian dog is getting first dibs), 1 fall early girl tomato plant (very good), two new roma tomato plants, one sad pepper plant, a few basil sprouts, and 10 2 in summer squash sprouts.

Now as long as I can keep Elle out of the garden it looks like this summer will be very fruit full. If any one would like some parsley just let me know.

Spring Has Sprung!

Tomorrow will be the first official day of Spring Break and I can't wait! The weather is suppose to be beautiful next week and I am going to take advantage of it and all my free time. My main goal for the week is to relax and enjoy, but I also want to get a few unfinished projects done. This includes hanging pictures, putting pictures in frames that have been haning on my wall empty for the last six months, and completing some other craft projects. I have new projects that I would love to start, but I've told myself I need to finish the ones I started in September first. Also, I plan to do a little spring cleaning. After, reading my Real Simple magazine I have learned that my bathroom is in need of some real organizing. If you are bored at all in the next week chances are I will be doing absolutely nothing, so give me a call and we can hang out.
