I Love my new camera! Check out this action shot!

Trained Pups

My dogs are trained. Some people don't believe me. This is a great photo proof. I have them sit, lay and wait. Then I covered them with treats and they waited and waited. Then I went to get my camera. Turned it on focused and took the shot with out them breaking. Man I love being the Master.

Valentine's Day 2011

This year we had a great laid back Valentines day.
We went to the best Mexican restaurant in Moscow called La Casa Lopez. We went there with the Dunn's because it's just more fun with friends.
Travis gave me a card! I have asked for a card since we've gotten married and so I was totally excited. Silly but really I just needed it!
I also got a stuffed dog that holding a bone that says "Puppy love" and chocolate.
He is just a sweet heart.
I gave Travis all of his 14 days of Valentines. He really just loves getting a little treat each day... I mean come on who wouldn't?

my valentines pups!

We went to an AWESOME superbowl party at our friends, Brenna and Matt Klien's apartment. It was so fun. We ate great food and cheered for the Packers. Best part, they won! Travis will be in a good mood all week!

We love our Bandman. He is stubborn and tries our patience but he is a good boy. He LOVES garbage and licking the bathtub. He is curious about what is on the kitchen table and barks in his crate. He loves ropes and wrestling with Nala. He loves going on runs and can out run me any day of the week!

Nala Bear

Nala is our angel pup. She is feisty and rules the house. She chases her nub and can't figure out how to hold her ears forward. She loves to sleep on her back, head on the pillow, like a human. She loves water, she can't stop drinking it and jumps into the shower if we leave the door open. She lets me dress her and paint her nails. We love her so much!

Matching sweaters

I made these three sweaters out of my Father in Laws old sweater! They loved them!

Crafts or lessons

So lucky me I had to get a BIG filling to cure I damaged tooth. Since Travis and I are on a TIGHT budget I am not looking forward to paying for this bad boy.
I was thinking that maybe I could make ends meet by making and selling some of my crafts. Or teaching someone to sew or help them with a project.
I keep a blog of my recent creations at (click the picture on my side bar to take you to it) if you want to see some of the things I've made. I can make a lot more as well. I've done a couple of craft fairs too where I sold earrings, hair bows and I-spy bags.
If anyone is interested e-mail me at Tell me what your want and we can discuss pricing. Everything I have made so far has been very cheap and resonable.
I could also teach you how to sew, quilt, knit, make flowers etc.
Don't feel obligated to contact me I just thought this might be a good way to share my talents and make a little extra money to help smooth things over. Thanks so much!
