Weekly Winners – Week Ending 8.21.10

I didn’t have an exciting trip to Chicago to make my weekly winners for the week more visually appealing, but there were some big events – including an anniversary (ahem), my grandfather’s birthday and (DRUM ROLL PLEASE!) the puppy got his splint off!

You can't beat starting your day with a gorgeous pink sky

There was to be no exchange of gifts and yet... anniversary Chucks

He's kind of wobbly and unsure, but how fabulous to have that splint off!

For more Weekly Winners, visit Lotus and check out the awesome shots on her site, as well as the amazing participants.

Weekly Winners – It’s Mostly About the Puppy

In a week where the biggest thing that happened is that we got a new puppy, I guess you can expect that yes, there’s lots of pictures of the new pup who is so freakin’ adorable (thank goodness, because… I’m pretty sure I’m allergic. Send Zyrtec. STAT).

For more awesome Weekly Winners, go visit Lotus, and the rest of the WW participants.

And be sure to have a very Happy (AND SAFE) Fourth of July!

Yep. He chose us so we choose him.

We're crate training. The first day? It was NOT fun. Little Dude likes his crate much better now.

Yep. He's kind of stolen our hearts with the cute.

He's usually this mellow. Chillaxin' in the grass.

Oh, but wait! We didn't just get a puppy. I bought myself a new lens too.

Happy Fourth of July, y'all!

Picture MeMe

Tamara from Diva Cowgirl tagged me to do this photo Me Me. The dealio is this:

1. Open the 4th picture folder on your computer.

2. Open the 4th picture and post it on your blog.

3. Explain the picture.

4. Tag 4 people to do the same!

Okay, first of all. I kinda cheated – what happens in my pictures folders is that when I upload pictures, it automatically goes into a new folder based on the date. Some of those folders only have one or two pictures (especially the ones from my phone – I don’t take a ton of pictures with my phone now that I carry my camera everywhere). So, I went to the FIRST folder after the FOURTH with four pictures in it. This is the fourth picture.

This is an ornament (DUH) that used to be on my mom’s Christmas tree. This was also my Day 90 submission to the 365 project. S, is obviously for “Sarah” (My brother has an ornament for his name – my sister wasn’t born yet so she got cheated out of an alphabet ornament). When I moved out and started doing my own Christmas tree, I got a few of my old ornaments to take with me. This is one of ’em.

I’m gonna tag: Robin, Kat from Sassy Irish Lassie, FarmWife, and Inkling.
