Just some {PRETTY} pictures

Last night the office staff went to eat at Shoji's for Ashlee's 25th birthday. We brought our "others". The new "GUY" in Ashlee's life who we have been hearing so much about is {TREE} yes that is his name, "Well you might be able to tell by my name, that my parents are HIPPIES" Quote by TREE. And if I do say so myself, are these two not the most beautiful people ever !!! (HUBBA HUBBA) Oh sorry Ashlee ! But Tree is mucho HOTTIE !!

Ok aside from that the weather has been "HOT ~ HOT ~ HOT" too.
But the stormy weather has made for some beautiful skys.

And.......... Got the tickets for the DUCKS game in Eugene tomarrow,
4 of them. So Andy is meeting us there and we will watch the game then drive home because Mona & Dave are going to be in town for the weekend. Sunday we rented a raft and are all going rafting on the Rogue..... FUN FUN FUN.

On a different note, Steve and Robin thought it would be a good idea to give Winnie a bath yesterday outside because all the HOT weather. After all remember how much fun she had catching the ball in the little pool I bought her??? Well she was none to happy about them using the hose on her and was quite TRAUMATIZED by the whole ordeal getting away and hiding under the steps to the back yard ( I didn't even know anything coulld get under those steps????) And staying there for about an hour !!!! MY poor BABY !!!

Will get a quick MUG~SHOT off before we leave town in the morning so until later.......

Did you catch the "Lunar Eclipse"? I caught a sliver of it at 5:30 am this morning. Winnie is now sleeping all night , so didn't want to ruin a good thing.


This is a Hedgehog squeek toy Winnie got from the Tally Family for Steve's birthday on Saturday. ( they thought he STEVE already had everything so got presents for the dog)

She loves it !! I shot a video so you could hear it, but wouldn't download, will try again later, but for today just pictures....

"Mug~Shot" 8-25-07

Pismo Beach.......

Have gone on a couple fun vacations to this place in the last 10-12 years. Would like to go back. There is a beach called "Moonstone" beach because of all these little stones, MOONSTONES, hence the name. Also a restaurant called "ROBIN'S" we had to eat there and I bought a t-shirt.

Well can you believe summer is almost over, I haven't even started yet??? I better get out there and get busy....

Have a good one !

"My new RX Glasses"

Ok, so I picked up my new "REAL" glasses yesterday, with progressive lens no less !! I have been using the $Dollar$$tore glasses. Now I really feel grown up. And they are sooooo cute, with a little design on the "arms"?? what do you call the side of your glasses that go around your ears????

Anyway the battery was dead on my camera so plugged it in to charge and took these pictures with my phone. Picture one back at work after picking them up yesterday and today after going in to get my hair colored and having Laurel ( my hair dresser ) say, " well I do think a perm might be a good idea today" We will schedule another appt to do your weave(color) So it wasn't just me who thought my straight limp hair was UGLY !!! Only your hair dresser knows......

PS. I do believe I look like I have a "LAZY" eye?? Whats up with that??? And yes they are taking a while to get used to, feel a bit nauseas with them on, can't turn my head to fast or get all wee waugh !!!

"Mug~Shot" 8-18-07

This is one of the many mugs brought to us for our "MUG" collection??

Well yes it has turned into a collection since everyone keeps bringing us mugs from their travels !

But seriously I am not complaining, I love all the different mugs. And because I drink coffee they are also useful.

Had a busy day yesterday, catching up with some friends, one for lunch and one for coffee !! And got a massage. Going to treat myself once a month !!

Going to meet Vivien at the scrapbook store, NBP and get some projects done, hopefully. Want to make a "lunch Pail" album for Mona's friend Ally who is a survivor of breast cancer and participated in the cancer walk in SF.

Also promised Winnie I would take her for a better get going.

Happy Saturday !!

"Mug~Shot" 8-11-07


Actually got to sleep in a little (Winnie has been waking up at 4:45 the last week) UGH !! This morning it was 5:00 am, I took her outside to do her business then we went back upstairs and back to bed. I ignored her and she settled down and we slept until 6:00. Then I said OK lets go get your BREAKFAST. Of course now she is sleeping beside me in the love seat and it is only 6:30 am. That's what she doesn't get..... on week days she can take a nap if she gets up to early, I on the other hand have to go to work !!!

So yesterday had a doctor appointment to check my BP, so I could get a refill on my med. It isn't really high just had that episode back when I was going on the scrapbook cruise. So it is OK still BUT "would be a good idea to EXERCISE and loose some weight" YOU THINK ??? DUH I know I should be doing that......

Then in the afternoon Robin and I had appts at the Eye Doctor. I got to order "REAL" RX glasses this time. No more DOLLAR $$$ Store ones for me. And I needed "Progressive lens" So of course it is all about the fashion statement, tried on about 30 pairs, Robin was getting impatient with me.... But this was a big decision. Finally decided on a pair that I had set in my "not sure" pile but Robin liked so checked them out again and they were the winners, stay tuned to see them in a couple of weeks......

So cute mug, isn't it. Got this one a long time ago. Nephew Dan was up for spring break and I took him down to meet the folks and we met in Corning, CA. About half way for both of us. We ate at the Olive Pit. Thought this was pretty cute.

Ok, so off to start my weekend, have a good one too.......

Girls Night Out

Had a really fun night out last night.

Us girls from the office all went out to dinner at the mexican place on the river in Shady Cove.

Sort of a good bye for Lindsey, who gave her notice after working at Dr Leong's office for 9 years. She is going to try her hand at an Ortho office. Boo Hoo, sad to see her go.

We had a nice dinner then back to Debbie's house to hang out.
We got started looking at pictures of Debbie and her sister Doris that they took with this funny program on Scott's computer. I wish I had pictures of that ! You can take pictures of yourself with different "distortions" fish eye, bubble etc

OH MY GOD..... I laughed so hard I thought I was going to be sick !!! Had to run to the bathroom once as to not have an accident ..... We were taking pictures of ourselves with all kinds of goofy looks, giant forheads, noses, ears heheheheh
Then when I really thought I was going to be sick from laughing so hard, I had to just walk away.

Scott is suppose to down load the pictures to a cd for Debbie to bring to work Monday, if I get some copies I will post them. But only if you promise not to sell them on the internet....

Well off to the DR to have my BP checked then this afternoon Robin and I go to the eye DR. I am going to get some "REAL" glasses now...

PS can you believe I figured out how to put the TUNES on my blog???
I am so excited about it, can you tell I LOVE Van Morrisom !!!!
