New Security Door

Since before summer began, Jeremy and I have been talking about getting a screen/security door.  The weather is really great up here and it’d be nice to have some airflow in the house.  Plus, we thought that Diesel would like to sit near it and watch the world go by. 

It’s beautiful and it’s just what we wanted.  We’ve had it opened this evening and Diesel already likes to sit near it and watch people walk by and play in the park.

Sara’s Randomness

There’s been a few things that I’ve wanted to blog about over the past few days, but they all seemed so random and I couldn’t come up with a substantial post about any of them.  So, I’ve decided to combine them all into one random post of fun!  Here we go…

1. Jeremy got a package in the mail the other day and gave Diesel the box to play with.  It proved to be very entertaining for him.


2. We took Diesel for a long walk a few days ago and when we came back home he was exhausted.  And really I just thought he looked funny in this picture, so I wanted to post it. 


3.  It’s monsoon season here in Northern AZ.  We usually get thunderstorms in the afternoons/early evenings and after one storm this week, we found this big guy on our patio.  Actually, Diesel found him and started barking at him.  Gross!


4. Just another cute picture of Diesel…we were changing the bedding yesterday and he decided to curl up in the comforter.  Awwww!IMG_1719

5.  And last but not least, have you all seen the “Wedding Entrance” video on YouTube?  It’s SO awesome!  I came across it through Twitter on Thursday and surprise, surprise, on Friday, I saw the couple on The Today Show.  Then yesterday, the whole bridal party was on The Today Show, reenacting the dance.  I could watch this video over and over (actually, I have) and it just makes me smile.  To my next friend who gets married, please do something like this at your wedding.  Check it out:

Lake Powell 2009

Our summer vacation to Lake Powell has come and sadly gone, but it was a fun time this year.


Jerm and I drove out and met up with his mom, dad, sister and her friend.  We spent 3 days playing in the lake, getting some sun and hanging around the hip-hopping town of Page, AZ (please note my sarcasm, and if you're from Page, AZ...I'm sorry because that sucks).  Some highlights from our trip include:

1.  No bed bugs this year!!  I'm happy to say that the Days Inn in Page, AZ does not have bed bugs...unlike the Best Western did last year.

2.  Jeremy put sunscreen on my upper back the morning of our first day on the lake, while I put the rest all over my body.  By that afternoon, the ONLY part painfully sunburned was my upper back.  Thanks, 15 years when I have skin cancer there, I'm blaming you.

3.  My new bathing suit top from Target broke...while I was wearing it!!  Jerm's response was, "Babe, just go topless."  Yea, riiiiiiight.  He used a zip tie to fix it.

4.  Jerm wake boarded for the first time. (His feet are too big and he's never been able to find a board that fit...until now.)  "Insert Video Here"  It's taking FOREVER to download onto YouTube.

5. Fun times were had by all and it was a nice vacation.

Powell Rocks

Us kids swam out to some rocks.

In other vacation news, we were gone for about 4 days and during that time Diesel stayed at the Hassayampa Canine Resort.  He loved it!  We got a call from the place saying that he was such a good dog and that he was having a great time.  Plus, he got a "brushing and a biscuit" one day and a grooming right before we picked him up. 

Diesel Groomed

So cute, with his purple bandana!


Glad to be home.

Where Have We Been?

Hello friends! Jeremy, Diesel and I haven't been anywhere...we've just been really boring lately! :) But do not worry because we're leaving tonight to go on vacation for a few days and that should provide some fun blog posts. Yay for vacations! We'll be joining the Bofferding family for a few days of fun in the sun at Lake Powell. Here's to no bedbugs this year and to only minor sunburns! Also, just for fun, here are a few fun updates on our life:

1. I got the computer game, The Sims 3,...and I've gotten Jeremy addicted to it. I absolutely love The Sims and could play it for hours. In fact, a few years ago, I thought I had a problem because I would play it for many hours on I did an intervention on myself and stopped "cold turkey" for a few days. I'm better now.

2. Diesel is now almost 6 months old and he's tipping the scale at 60lbs!

3. Speaking of Diesel, while we're on vacation he'll be staying at the Hassayampa Canine Resort (yea, we're "those" kind of doggie parents). He went for half a play day a few weeks ago and LOVED it, so we know he's going to have a great time there for the next four days.

4. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out tonight at midnight! Who's totally stoked for this, like I am?!? I'm sad that I can't see it at midnight, like I did for the last one, but I have a date with my dad on Sunday to go see it. :)

Alright...see you all when we get back from Lake Powell.
