Birthday Boy

Hey guys! We made it through another work week! Whew!!!! That was close!

The excitement of the week - Pippin's 3rd birthday! His birthday was Wednesday. When the alarm went off at the unfortunate time of 5:00 am we got up for our usual walk, but in his honor decided not to curse him. We sang various renditions of Happy Birthday and went on our merry way to work. (Or merry as possible for the screwed up company we work for.) When we left work we stopped by the pet store to get the little guy some gifts and made our way home - only to discover Pippin had already had quite the celebration of his own. We made a little wood windowseat that we have in front of one of the front windows where he can watch cars and people all day. On it, I HAD a really cute green feather-down blanket. Apparently, Pippin needed some excitement Wednesday because when we walked in feathers were flying. And sticking to a certain dog's face and ass. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have you ever tried to sweep up a full-size blanket of down? Uh yeah. Once we moved past the destruction we gave Pippin his cake and even let the booger sleep in (aka HOG) the bed. Here are some pics of the festivities:


On tap for this weekend? The East Nashville Tomato Festival! It's a little carnival in our neighborhood. It sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. Pretty much everything going on is within walking distance for us, and they have all sorts of activities going on all day. So, the plan is to get up, go for a LSD, then head over to the festival! We've done a lot on the house this week. We re-did the master closet in our bathroom (re-paint it, hang proper clothes organizers and load my clothes in in my anal color-organized fashion) and we started painting our bathroom. We picked a beautiful deep/warm shade of orange which is looking awesome with all the white tile in there. We're taking out the small, old medicine cabinet and hanging a really pretty large and ornate mirror so we've (well, Brent) has been putting up some drywall in there. It's looking great!!! I've got a lot of house pics I need to upload to Flickr, so when I do I'll let you all know!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Is he on a sugar high? sure looks like it. I had two Red Bulls today; I was pretty much like that today.

Heh, heh. I don't know why but the pic of eating the cake looks like somebody is holding his body upside down and he's just able to reach it. :D

OMG how cute is Pippin. So glad to hear that you and Brent are settling in well.

I'm right with you on the work stress thing. I truly despise some of the people in my office.
