Happy Birthday!

Our sweet little Remington turns two today!  It's so hard to believe since we've only had him for 10 months.  I can still remember the first day we went to go see him at the shelter.  I had seen his picture online and told Jon I wanted to check him out.  Without hesitation he said "Okay, we can head over there on my lunch break."  

This is a picture I took of him the first day we met him at the shelter.

Remi, named Paco at the time, wasn't what I had expected.  He paid us little attention when we joined him in his yard at the shelter.  He gave us a look over and walked away.  The dog in the fence next to him was full of energy and spunk, but Remi just looked sad.  I didn't know what to make of him.  They told us he had a previous owner who had given him up and that he'd been at the shelter now for 5 months.  Now I felt I understood his demeanor.  He probably thought we were like all of the others who had come to look at him, show him some attention and then ultimately leave him alone again.  But I couldn't leave him.

We set up an arrangement to fill out our adoption form, get all of his necessary supplies and pick him up the next day.  As soon as we got him in the car, he had a smile on his face.  And he has been nothing but a fun-loving sweetheart ever since.  He makes us smile and laugh every day, and I can't imagine our life without him.  So happy birthday to you, Remington!  We're so glad you came into this world two years ago, and that all of the rest of your years will get to be spent with us!

Here he is on the day we brought him home :)

And since we're on the topic of dogs, check out this woman's mission and amazing heart for them.

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right? Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect. I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here . Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here . The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and

Food for Thought

I apologize for my absence these last few days. I started a new job last week as a event planner consultant for the local paper and have been quite busy. Nevertheless, I'm back now. First I'd like to share a yummy recipe I discovered last week. In case you don't know, I am not a big veggie lover. So when I find a good recipe that has veggies in it, I get really excited. Such was the case last week. My hubby and I buy zucchini on almost every grocery visit. However, the only thing we usually put it in is a stir fry recipe we like to make. This is good for me because the zucchini taste is masked by peppers, teriyaki sauce and chicken. I can eat it. Well last Wednesday I wasn't in the mood for stir fry, but I really needed to use my zucchini before it went bad. So I went on a search for a good zucchini recipe. And what should I stumble upon, but zucchini chips. And they were very good! Here is the recipe. Ingredients" 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs 1/4
