Woof Wednesday

As many of you know, our sweet fur baby, Remington, was adopted from an SPCA shelter in town.  If it weren't for them, he would have been euthanized months before we even got to meet his sweet face.  I am forever grateful to the people who devote their time and money to saving animals.  And now I want to help too!

Woof Wednesdays is a non-profit organization that brings awareness to shelter dogs by posting their pictures and information on Wednesdays.  You can post via facebook or on your blog.  Their motto is "No paw left behind."  I hope you'll join us in the fight for animals that can't fight for themselves!

This week I'm bringing to you Rusty, the Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.  


Rusty is a shy, sweet, sensitive fellow. He spent one month in boarding school with Ralph Gibson, a well-known trainer in Alabama. Ralph brought Rusty out of a submissive state and gave him confidence. Rusty knows commands, and is obsessed with shaking hands.  Not aggressive. Rusty is fearful of small children and wary of strangers. It takes Rusty a while to build trust, but once bonded, he is your shadow, a true loyal friend.
He's a smart fella too :)

He is neutered, house trained and up-to-date on shots.  For more information on Rusty go here.
Location: Alabaster, AL
Adoption fee: $80-100, to cover a small portion of the vetting fee
Adoption Group:  Last Chance Dog Rescue Alabama

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp

Table Decorating Contest

Jon and I are leaving to spend a long weekend in San Antonio with his parents and his brother (who will be town from Arizona).  But before we go, I wanted to leave you with some pictures from the Officer Spouses Club Table Decorating Contest that was held last night. I called Jon on my way home from base, and he immediately asked "How was the contest?" to which I responded "Victorious." The 32nd FTS, our squadron, took first place! The theme was Silver Screen so we decided to focus on famous quotes from each movie genre. Each place setting featured a different movie. We had a "drive-in" for our center piece where clips of the famous quotes were shown. Welcome to the Jayhawk Drive-In! Wizard of Oz place setting. The glass had a button you could turn on to make the water swirl and look like a tornado inside. Also notice the witch's feet sticking out from under the plate :) A close-up of the yellow brick road I painted. Silence of the Lambs pl

DIY with Branches

Fall is in the air and that means that many empty branches will soon be too!  Might as well put them to work in jazzing up your decor.  You know what they say...when life gives you branches, make things out of them!  Okay, maybe that's not how it goes, but it's what I'm going to do.  If you'd like to join me, read the DIY projects below. Branch Coffee Table If you're in the market for a contemporary coffee table, but don't want to dish out hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars, this is the solution for you.  It's a relatively easy DIY project with room changing results. What you need: 1.  A thick branch (or branches depending on the look and size you want).  Maybe you can help a neighbor cut down a tree.  Then it'll be a win win.  They get the help they need, and you get a new coffee table. 2.  A piece of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) wood for the base of the table.  Cut to the appropriate size for your limbs-making sure the limbs don't stic
