Mishmash Post

I've been missing again.   It's been unintentional.  Last time I blogged, it was Lola's birthday.  I never got her to fully cooperate with the birthday flag photo on Friday...

Our day didn't go quite as planned.  My granddad got very sick and I rushed to Nocona to be with my grandmother at the hospital for a few hours.  Then I came back late on Friday night because I had a busy weekend planned.

My friend Abby came to town on Saturday.  I picked her up at the airport at 10, and then we started the fun...

We shopped
We ate
We looked at an awesome new house my uncle just bought
We had a "party" for Lola's birthday
We went to the House of Blues to see Ryan Star

One place we shopped was Swoozies.  I was thrilled to finally find a cute shell for my ipad.  It's been dang near impossible to find one for the ipad 2, so since the ipad 3 is about to come out, it makes sense that there is now a case for the 2, right?  Anyway, I couldn't be happier with my Lil…

{Seven}

Today my little love, Lola, turns seven!
Where has the time gone?
This is baby Lola...all 3 lbs. of her! She was all ears and feet To Celebrate Seven here are seven things I love about Lola:
(1) Her itty bitty tail wags so hard, her whole butt wags too. (2) She talks (it's different than her bark). (3) Her day isn't made until she has snuggled on my bed before she goes to sleep in her kennel.
(4) She loves her toys and plays with ALL of them. (5) When she is sleeping, she smells like corn chips. (6) Her pretty brown eyes and long white eyelashes. (7) How happy she is to see me when I get home, even if I've only gone to take the trash out!

Of course there are a million other things I love about my pup!
Happy 7th Birthday Lola!

A Fail and Grammys wrap-up

I'm a complete Valentine's Day failure this year.  I did not even decorate.  Let me repeat.  I DID NOT EVEN DECORATE!  All I did was put out a garden flag and the wreath I made for the front door.  Oh well, I can only hope to do better for Easter!

Now, for a Grammy's wrap-up.  I thought the show was pretty good...  I enjoyed the kick-off with The  Boss.  The Beach Boys reunion was fun, along with Maroon 5 and Foster the People.  I thought Bruno Mars was super cute.  I loved the Glenn Campbell tribute.  It was great to see Adele's voice is back.  The Foo Fighters rocked it. 

I thought the show kind of started to go off the rails toward the end, but was happy that they pulled it back together with the jam session on stage with Sir Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, The Boss, et al.

I was happy that my two favorite albums from 2011 did so well... Adele's "21" and Foo Fighter's "Wasting Light".  Foo won everything they were up for, except t…

Inspirational words...

This is a girl only post. Not that any guys are reading, but if any are, I can assure you that your interest in this is about to go to negative 50...


Last time I bought tampons, they had changed the box.  This tells me that a man is surely running the marketing scheme, because every female knows that it is totally un-cool for the box to change.  We know just how irritating it is when you are used to seeing the box look one way, but now it looks another way, so you are forced to stand in the dang "personal care" aisle for 5 minutes trying to figure out just which box it is that you now need.  So after my 5 minutes of looking, I got what I thought I needed, but it turns out I bought the "sporty" ones instead of the regular ones.

I don't think that the sporty ones have any difference other than packaging.  I kind of like the packaging better, because they don't come undone in your purse and they aren't so loud.  But the funniest thing is that they have …

Lola's Favorite...

As we watched the Super Bowl on Sunday night, Lola found a commercial she liked.  I tweeted about it and I'm sure everyone thought I was nutso.  Since Sunday, whenever that same commercial comes on, she watches it.  I caught her on video tonight...

Fashion and Food in Phone Pics

Friday was kind of a bust at Canton. Apparently early February is not the month to go. There were lots of sales, but not a ton of new merchandise. On Sunday, I met my friends Suzanna for breakfast at Northpark. She was in town from Midland, so I got to see her and her little boy. After breakfast we walked down to see the turtles and ducks. We passed by Louis and I loved their display so much I had to take a couple of pictures with my phone...

Can you think of anything more heavenly than a cupcake topped with a Louis?  I cannot.


Then I met up with Lisa and we headed to the Dallas Museum of Art. We had been wanting to see the John Paul Gaultier exhibit. It has been there since November and only runs another couple of weeks. We were unprepared for how crowded it was! Apparently everyone is dashing to the DMA to see it before it leaves. They didn't allow cameras in the exhibit. Here is a phone pic I took as we were waiting our turn to go inside...



I lifted some photos from D magazin…

No repeats please

Today is Groundhog Day, and I pray that it will not be like the movie and repeat itself.  Not that it was particularly bad.  Nothing horrible happened, but it was just one of those busy days where everyone seemed like they were placed on this early to annoy you.

This morning started out with the following plan:

(1) Jennifer and I had a "firm client" that was set at 8:30.  He has been a continual pain for months and we were happy to be resolving of his case.  I had spoken on the phone with him yesterday (twice) to give him directions for today.  Not to mention the fact that he has been in trouble before, so this wasn't his first rodeo. Plan was to jointly discuss everything with him and then Jennifer would handle the plea, while I went to deal with...

(2) I had a client that was set for an arraignment because we are set for a Jury Trial on Monday.  Basically, this entails the judge calling us up, asking if we are ready for trial, and then telling us what day to be back ne…
