Strawberries, Blueberries or Blackberries

Hey, hey all!  How has everyone been?  Can you believe that it’s mid-September already?  Where has this YEAR gone?  It’s starting to feel like Fall already up here and I’m not a fan of it.  The mornings are getting chilly and this past week, I’ve found that I need to wear a sweatshirt or long pants when I take Diesel for his early morning walk.  Ugh…I’ll miss you, Summer.

Anyway, my first trip for work, a couple weeks ago, was a success.  I spent 2 busy days in SoCal, stopped by 7 high schools, went to one huge college fair and talked to many prospective students.  I leave on my next trip tomorrow and I’ll be gone for a whole week this time.  Who’s going to volunteer to come take Diesel for a walk and to feed Jeremy?  Anyone?  Anyone?

In other exciting news in the Bofferding house…Jeremy and I both got Blackberries, or as I call them “Blueberries” (because I don’t really like blackberries)!  We were eligible for upgrades and Verizon is having a great by one get one free deal, so into the store we went and out we came with two Blackberries Tours.  We LOVE them.  I’ll admit, I never really wanted a Blackberry before…but now I’m obsessed.  Not only can I talk on the phone, but I can play on the internet, get emails, Blackberry Message people, update my Facebook and play on Twitter.  It’s SO fun!  I’ve even managed to get Jerm on Twitter and I feel an obsession from him coming on.  Are you guys into Twitter?  I’ve been into it for awhile and I think it’s a lot of fun.  Rather simple, but that’s what makes it fun.  So, follow us: Me & Jeremy!



Of course, I got a pink cover!

Lastly, no post would be complete with out mentioning our, Diesel.  He’s doing great and staying busy chewing up toys and trying to sleep on our bed with us.  Here are some new pics of our boy!


Getting bigger!


Looking over my shoulder at my computer.


New squishy soccer ball toy.


This is his new favorite toy.  He’ll hold it in his mouth forever.  In fact, he’s laying at my feet right now, and he just feel asleep with it in his mouth!  No joke!  See…

It’s Travel Season

Today I embark on my annual travel season for work.  To refresh everyone’s memory, I’m an Admissions Counselor at the college that Jeremy and I graduated from.  Travel season includes each counselor going out to their territory, visiting high schools and participating in high school college fairs/nights. 

This year I’m very excited that my territory is Southern California!  We’ve got direct flights from Prescott, AZ to Ontario, CA or Los Angeles, CA, which is going to make my travel a breeze.  No more carpooling down to PHX at the crack of dawn, to catch an early flight out to Texas because of the time difference!  Instead at about 3pm today, I’ll mosey on over to our local airport, hop on the plane and arrive in Ontario about an hour later.  Wonderful!

In light of my travel, last night Jeremy surprised me with some presents for my upcoming trips!  He got me 2 magazines, peanut butter Whoppers (amazing…go buy some right now!), Hot Tamales (my fave) and season 1 of 90210 (who’s excited for the season premiere on Tuesday??).  Woo hoo!  He said that he’d be missing me while I was gone and he wanted me to have stuff to make me think of him.  Awwwwww!


Speaking of my travel, I was packing this morning and came across a dilemma.  Should I pack my wonderful, Chi Pro hairdryer or should I just use the one at the hotel?  Hmmm.  Diesel was laying on the bathroom rug as I got all my things out of the cabinet and I set my hairdryer next to him.  He was in a bit of a sleepy state, so he just sniffed it and continued to lay there.  Well, about 10 minutes later, I was finished getting everything together and glance down at him, to find him sniffing the hairdryer again…or so I thought!  I saw something orange on the cord of the hairdryer,  just assumed it was a string from this orange rope/tug, and thought nothing of it, but something made me look again.  I suddenly realized that the orange string was in fact the copper wires that are inside the cord!  Turns out the little schmuck was quietly nibbling on the cord the whole time!!

I’m very sad that my hairdryer is now broken and not repairable.  First of all, it was NOT a cheap hairdryer!  Secondly, it dried my hair so fast and helped make it straight and smooth.  Finally, it was SO my fault for placing the hairdryer right in front of Diesel.  Ugh!  Oh well, rest in peace Chi Pro hairdryer, I’ll miss you dearly.
