Yum

So, what does every hip, 20-something young couple do on a Friday night?? Install a new dishwasher. Yeah, we live fast and furious lives!! We had decided to go ahead and get the torture over with so we wouldn't have it hanging over our heads the rest of the weekend. There's nothing like knowing in the back of your mind you have this terrible project to do sometime. It's really a pain to do, but mission was accomplished and it took about 2.5 hours to get the old one out and the new one in. Pips was a huge help of course, always peering in to see what Brent was doing, or standing on the instruction booklet as I was trying to see what to do next. So, we loaded it up last night and fortunately all seem to go well and nothing leaked! It's always weird to use a different dishwasher and try to figure out what should go where and how to max the space. We had the old one down to a SCIENCE! We've been in this house 6 yrs and 15 days (we moved in on my b-day!), so we had gotten pretty used to the old one. Now it sits in our garage and we'll take it to the dump along with our recyclables later today. Pips was a little confused about where his new friend was going, but he's put it all together now and thinks the new one licks just as good as the old one. He loves to lick!! Afterwards we went out to dinner and treated ourselves to an awesome piece of caramel pie. Serious yum! All these pics were taken with my new, tiny little Cannon camera that will fit in my amphipod and go on all my runs now. Sweet!! It's so TINY!

The boys (Brent and Pip) are still asleep in the bedroom. I'm not sure which of them I hear snoring right now but I'm guessing it's Pip! Once they get up we'll go for a short morning run and then get ready for Boston Terrier Day. Hopefully we'll have time to swing by the Pumpkin farm. The cool weather and fog we've had all week have me in major Halloween spirits!!

Have a great Saturday!!

When we lived in San Antonio, we waited until our in-laws were visiting to buy our new dishwasher. "Oh shucks, you mean we have to do it ourselves" *wink, wink* "Dad-in-law wanna install a dishwasher?" (dad-in-law very handy!)
Maybe we'll pencil in New Haven for 2006?!

nothing quite beats getting the chores behind you with a day left in the weekend (except no chores).

hey, spending the evening installing a dishwasher, means you won't be spending future evenings washing dishes!!

Hubby tried to install our last dishwasher. I ended up calling a plumber. He's a great guy, just not too handy around the house sometimes...lol.

I am going to gain 10 lbs if the bloggers keep putting photos of desserts up! I swear I gain weight just looking at desserts....

That camera looks great. Awesome to take to destination races. Your dog rocks, I love Boston Terriers. My friend has one named Baxter Bengelhofer and his name fits perfectly.

The pic of the pie - loved it! And pippin is gorgeous - what a little cutey, even if he does have some strange habits!
