So, onto the premier debut of ~Whiskers Wednesday~ !!! The first antic will include the magical powers of one Maui Haugen, aka "The Fat One"! As I am letting the dogs out for their pre-bedtime nature call, I'm always watching for lurking black objects behind me. Maui is the king Houdini in our house. He ~loves~ escaping to the outdoors. Since we live in town and have a second cat (Uggs) this is a no-no in our book. We don't want him to get hurt. So back to the story... I'm standing at the door in my jammies (tank and shorts...sans undergarments mind you) I notice the dogs are done doing their business so I open the door to let them back in. Not but a moment later, do I see a flashy of black fuzzy streaking out the patio door meowing the whole time. Now for being a 26 lb cat, you'd think Maui would have a lion's roar...oh no he doesn't. He squeaks! So luckily I have my slippers on as I race off into the night behind him. Maui darts through the bushes by the house weaving and squeaking the whole time. I'm chasing after him saying in a sweet voice (so not to scare him!) exactly what I'm going to do to him when I get a hold of him. "Come here Fat One, so I can paddle your butt." ect. As I'm darting through our landscaping, I hear something. It's our neighbors' friends leaving next door. I can hear, "I think something is in their bushes" followed by "Looks like Kelly. Wonder what she's doing?". "Please don't come over to visit, please don't come over to visit" runs through my head. Oh God, don't look too close or you might get an eye full. EEK!!! Hot on Maui's tail, he darts back to the backyard again. Through the bushes, up and over the patio we go and finally I catch the dang cat. I scoop him up and ruffle him a little as I carry him back to the house. I deposit him into the breakfast nook and he looks at me with a satisfied look of "That was great, we should do it again." Dang cat!
This ends the 1st episode of Whiskers Wednesday!

Things ~have~ progressively gotten better though. Not only have I gotten a bunch of phone calls returned ( I HATE making calls!! Avoid them at all cost!) but I booked our (DH & I) spa session at Panache at Madden's Resort (just north of Brainerd, MN) for this Saturday. Can't wait!! We're doing mani's, pedi's, hot stone massages, and I'm getting a facial. It sounds luxurious! We are going up to Brainerd's Bed & Breakfast, AKA Dennis & Joanne's house, Friday nite. It will be so much fun as I've never seen their place without snow on the ground. They have a gorgeous yard with loads of flower beds and waterfall/stream too. I've only seen it in pictures. I haven't seen them for awhile either so it will be great fun to visit with them. Then we are going to the spa at noon on Saturday. YAY!! Then we will check into our room at the resort (Breezy Point) after 5pm. It's going to be a great relaxing time. Exactly what we need.
I've gotta run...almost done with work (tee hee hee) and need to go ride my horse. I'll give you the weekend report tomorrow. It will be kind of blah though...I took not a single picture this weekend. EEK!! Not like me at all!
Monday Nite Football is on tonite so I'm going to hide in my scraproom and hope the dogs can't find me:) I'm hoping it will keep raining so I don't have to take the dogs for a walk. I'm so lazy! Note to self, must buy dog bones to keep them entertained tonite. Off to Fleet Farm I go...

Teddy growling at Lance (it's his newest thing) and Lance still trying to convince him it'll be fun.
Scout is telling Teddy to run!!
He's still in there...so far!
Where are we going now? Can I drive?
These 2 just crack me up. We were laughing so hard and Teddy just rode around in the trailer like it's what every dog does. Too cute!! I can not wait to scrap these pictures!
So that was how we spent our Sunday last week. We're very exciting individuals! Our neighbors probably think we're crazy. Oh and we went shopping for a new microwave because our's died. I can feel your excitement overflowing!
Have a fabulous Friday and great weekend:^)

We had a great weekend! I have some awesome pictures to share of Lance and Teddy playing together. I'll try to get them uploaded tonight and post tomorrow. So very cute! I'll give the full weekend report tomorrow along with the pics.
It's raining and cool here! Loving this cooler weather!! Come on fall!!!!!

Again with the drinking!!
Callan and I! Excuse my crazy tan lines!!
The cake I made for Callan! I absolutely love the way it turned out. This was the first time I've ever used the decorator tips. It was a lot of work but fun to do.
Close up of the cake!
More drinking of the sprinkler water!
Have a great weekend! K

A little fun we had...at Lee's expense of course!!This was one of my better ideas I must say!!
Lee & Sam (L's girlfriend)
Lance, Lee and I on a very happy day!! Only 15 years in the waiting! Ha ha ha...OK maybe not that long:)
Not much new to report today. I'm healing pretty well from my mole-wacking surgical procedure (from last week) but still haven't been able to do several things like ride. Faith isn't minding the break but I'm hoping it will end soon.
Lance is working today but is going fishing tonight with Mike (chix nite friend, Jill's, hubby) so they will have a blast. Mike just got back from 2 years in Iraq so we're thrilled to have him back safe and sound. Hope they have fun!!
Have a great day:)

I was able to do a little scrapping last nite. It takes me so long right now because I can't reach anything so I have to get up to get everything instead of twisting again and reaching for it. I did do one of my absolute favorite LO's yet! It's is a Vegas picture using one of my Scraproom kits (S.E.I. citruskick). Love it!! I will post it as soon as I take it's picture tonight. I going to research a scanner/printer today and hopefully purchase one tonight.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Mine will be very low-key as I'm still pretty helpless! At least I can scrap!!!
