I should have my own TLC show with all these home projects.

I haven't written in here in awhile, but it's because I've been going full blast working on the house. In the last week we have relandscaped almost the entire backyard and taken on painting the bathroom (which turned out to be a much larger task than we planned) But both projects are about 80% done and I can hardly wait to finish them and post pictures!

It's Colin's last day of work before he has a few days off for us to finish up our projects. I'm enjoying the quiet and trying to rest my super-inflamed muscles by taking it easy. Mimi is joining me in the task my napping next to me, and I can't help but love that she sleeps with her tongue sticking out. When she woke up the other day part of her lip was stuck up elvis-style AND her tongue was sticking out, so I couldn't help but snap a photo:

I also picked up Bossypants from the library since it's been all the rage to read according to the blogs on my googlereader. As if reading that wasn't enjoyable enough I've added having some delicious fresh blueberries & grapes with a bagel and almond butter/apricot jam. Yum!

I've been spying this dog carrier on Amazon. It's a totally extravagant want, but it would be so amazing to ride to breakfast and have Huey in the basket (Mimi would be far too terrified/anxious) Plus it matches my bike, clearly a sign I should have it, right?! We've been enjoying the lovely pacific northwest summer by riding out bikes into Alberta for breakfasts, and it's reminded me why I love living here so much.

PS: If you get a chance you should read: THIS. I related to this post so much.

I have heard so much about Tina Fey's book. I might have to see if my library has a copy. PS: your dog is adorable!

I totally lucked out, my library has this feature called "it's your lucky day" where they put some of the hottest sellers out on a shelf and it's first come first serve.

Aw thanks!
