down and dirty

So after Peter being in Oregon all last week for work, I was thinking we were going to have a quite, lazy Saturday.
Um, not quite.
Friday night I was informed that Peter would be playing in the Kern County Mud Volleyball Tourney the next morning. And I was invited to play. He was on his work team, it was double elimination, it started at 9am, and he would probably be home in a couple hours. Ok, well I might as well go to. It will only be for a couple hours, I would be home by noon.
Again, not quite.

I am sitting here on my couch, tired and too pink from the sun. We did not lose right away like I expected. In fact we kept on winning. In fact we won 4th out of over 90 teams. Our scrappy finesse carried us to the end. I spent the entire day getting down and dirty and I loved it.

i want to ride my bicycle

Friends. Cute bikes with baskets. Breezy evening.
Perfect combination for a bike ride through the streets of my small town.

Our rides.

The scenery.

The crew.

Who needs fancy parks with bike trails? I'll take old barns, corn fields, and almond orchards any day.

Thanks girls!

i love him

To celebrate our second anniversary, Peter and I took a little weekend trip.
On Saturday morning, we woke up, packed our bags, got some snacks, put the Dodger magnet on the car (of course we have one), and made our way to the stadium. We received amazing tickets in a suite right next to the press box and enjoyed the game from there. I ate my weight in popcorn (which is hard to light weight) and watched the Boys in Blue pull out a fabulous win in extra innings.

Oh....and I achieved my goal. Yours truly was on the big screen. TWICE. Just me. It was fabulous!

Another highlight was seeing Westside Rental man up close and personal. Have any of you seen him before? He is at USC football games, Laker games, Dodger games, basically any and every sporting event in LA. He is hilarious. He is over the top. He is on you tube. This is him.

After the game we headed down the 5 to Anaheim. After a yummy dinner on Saturday, we spent the next day at Disneyland!

The weekend was great. Time spent with my man always is.

happy friday

This is Scully's favorite pose. She busts it out every time the camera is around. I think she is trying to get on the cover of Better Beagling

If I bribe her with a treat I can get this. Beagles have great ears. Scully likes to flop hers over and walk around.

And if I am really fast I can get this. Mid-yawn.

Have a great weekend!

This is what we woke up to Tuesday morning....

Pink Flamingos! A flock has been flying over our small town and we were hit earlier this week.

The Flamingo Fundraiser is put on by the high school youth group at our church. You can pay to have the pink lovelies sent to someones house and you can pay for bird insurance. Someone (we have a good idea who) paid to send the flock to our house to celebrate our anniversary. They spent the day basking in the sunlight and enjoying our quiet neighborhood. Then they flew away last night to decorate someone else's yard.

We enjoyed our little pink visitors. They made our yard kitschy and cute.

So what if I kept calling them penguins by mistake.....
