Friday night someone cooked me dinner. He made chili. It was tasty :) And then some friends came over, and we headed out to a new little place in Smalltown, VA. And it was fun. I hadn't seen some of those people in a while, so it was nice to catch up. AND...to meet some new friends! Louis stayed at the cook's house, and was not in his crate. EGADS! He ate the cook's blinds. Bad, bad pups. He has such anxiety when I leave him out of his crate :( Do your muffins have this problem too?
Saturday I woke up to bunches of snow falling! However, it went away before I even had the chance to get out and enjoy it. But that's okay. I had BIG plans for Saturday, and I needed to be able to get around.
Do you remember when I said I was going to get my hair cut? It was part of my New Year's to do list. Well, I did!!! And it's short. But I think I like it. Here, have a peek:
(first attempt to fix it...and it looks bleached out? it's the same color. promise!)
(a little messier today than i've done it the past few days)
(i'm not sure...what do you think?)
I played with it for most of Saturday, and tried to fix it a few ways. I think I've found the way it looks best, but I'm a bit nervie about how to fix it for the upcoming B&W Masquerade ball. Speaking of that masked event...I may have to go back on something I said. About my dress. The one that I needed to loose 8lbs to fit into. Yea. That may have been an understatement. I think 18lbs is more like it :( There is no way it's going to work.
I got the most amazing call today from my favorite dress shop. And guess what!?!?!?!? They think they can get MY dress in (the one that I fell in love with, but they couldn't get) in time for the ball. SO. EXCITED. I. CAN'T. STAND. IT. Do you want to see it? The dress that I love so much? Here, I'll show you...
(isn't it gorg?!?!?)
(love the sparkles on the top)
(look at all of the rosettes covering the dress. me loves!)
Isn't it something? But it would cause me to put $$ on my credit card. Which is bad. But I love it. I just don't know what to do. Sigh.
Anyway, back to Saturday night. We grilled filets with baked potatoes and had salads. It was fun! Grilling in the snow is something I haven't done before! Unfortunately, I haven't any pictures to share. The tasty supper was gobbled up in my belly so quickly there was no time for pictures :-o
Louis was also feeling under the weather on Saturday night : (
He had some breakfast that was a little bit "rich" for him, I think, and was leaving little presents all over my house :( I decided the best course of action was to stay in for the evening with him, and to play a few board games:
Sunday morning we were up and at 'em early. A friend's dog went missing, and a search party was formed to help find him. Unfortunately, we didn't find him :( But, we handed out hundreds of flyers so hopefully he will be found soon!
When we got back to my house we were frozen solid. I felt that this was the only solution:
Monday was work and pilates and such. Nothing too exciting. Louis is feeling a bit better, so he will probably be heading back to doggie day care tomorrow. Things around Smalltown, VA are starting to get exciting :)
Tonight is wine group, and BFF is hosting. I'm a little nervous to drive out to her house with the impending snow/ice forecast, but I can't pass up the chance for wine and cheese with my girls!
Wish me luck, and I'll keep you posted about my dress. What do you think? Is it worth breaking my New Year's resolution to myself?
