Does anyone blog anymore?  Is it considered Retro now? Should I start back up?

Thursday, November 22, 2012


On this, and every Thanksgiving, I like to sit back and reflect on everything that I am thankful for.  This year I thought I would look at last year's list and see if anything has changed.  Truthfully, not much, and there is nothing wrong with that!

  • Chris House - 'nuff said.  Best husband ever. - Yep, still number one!
  • Mom & Dad - My parentals are awesome and I look forward to every minute I get to spend with them. - Looking forward to a week in sunny Mexico with them next week!
  • Jeff, Sara, Ella, Sadie & Ezzy - My brother and his family, love love love them. - Oh yeah, love love love love love love love them!  Hopefully we'll be seeing them soon.
  • Angie, Brandon, Sandi, Ben, Grandma Vi - Chris's family, so glad that they were part of the marriage package. - Looking forward to hosting Chris's family today!
  • Jetty Pants & Ares Berries - These two fill my life with joy and keep me warm at night when the heater goes off. - So thrilled to add Nitro (Nitrocity) to this item.  He's been such a wonderful addition to our little family.
  • Extended Family & Friends - Wow, I am so thankful that I have such amazing people in my life.  I have the best Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends of my parents, Argosy Family, friends & friends & friends.... Still oh so thankful for this item.
  • My work family - "They" say you spend about 15% of your life at work, well these folks make it worth it! - Great team, great boss, so lucky....

Finally -Something I'm Really Good At

According to my FitBit I'm really good at sleeping (98% good!).  Can you guess what time Chris comes to bed? (And yes, I know I go to bed really early.....)

Jet & Ares have a new brother - Meet Nitro!

On Monday September 10th (the day after our 6th Wedding Anniversary, my how time flies) we welcomed Nitro into our Family.  Nitro is a 2 1/2 year old Boston Terrier.  At first Jet & Ares were not quite sure about Nitro, but now they have realized that he will be staying and are beginning to tolerate him.

Jet and Nitro are turning into good pals.  Nitro is very good about sharing the toys with Jet (Jet not so much, but Nitro is much faster so he usually ends up with them).  Nitro is very respectful and I would say he "plays well with others".

Ares and Nitro are having a great time together.  Ares sleeps in Nitro's dog bed quite often and when he is in there Nitro brings him toys. I think Nitro wants Ares to throw the toys for him, but he's learning.  They also chase each other around and play hide and seek.  It's pretty hilarious.

Chris loves having a dog around that wants to play hours of fetch (Jet gets bored quickly).  We purchased a Chuck-It stick so that we don't tire out faster than Nitro!

As for me, Nitro is a great walking buddy.  We usually go for a walk with Jet (he's an old man and can't go too far) and then we drop Jet off and head out from anywhere from 3 to 5 miles.  He walks so well on the leash and even jogs with me a bit.  He'll keep me in shape for sure!

Anderson Island - Jones Family Invasion

This past weekend the Jones Family invaded Anderson Island.  We had a great time roasting hot dogs at the new fire pit, combing the beach for treasure, hiking along the nature trail at Andy's Marine Park, golfing with our new caddy Ella, buying Salsa and Turnovers at the Farmers Market, and enjoying each others company.

9 Humans, 3 Dogs, One Tiny Cabin!

Ella and Cousin Buddy were fast friends.

5 Month Old Mazie is getting HUGE.  She loved the beach, and taking all of Buddy's Toys (Buddy, not a fan...)

Buddy loved the girls.  Here he is with Sadie in his favorite "Please to rub my belly" position.

And here is Buddy helping Grandpa and Ella put up the tent.  He's a big help.

Ella, learning to be a caddy.

Jeff teeing off on hole 8.

Chris and a passed out JetterPants.

Leaving the Island, goofballs all around.
