In other news, Brian came home with a new chewy that is actually Buster Proof. He can't tear it up or break it at all. It's made of real bone. Although he did manage to lick all the goody out of the middle of it pretty fast. I've sort of been wanting to go check out this dog park in Rogers sometime when the weather's nice, if any of you other doggie-mammas are interested...

As for the other randomness, check out the size of this moth! I have never seen a moth like this; all the ones I've seen are small and some shade of ugly brown, gray, or black. He flew in our house the other night and he was just beautiful!
Finally, here are some adorable pictures of little miss Audrie (Rachle and Jamie's almost 4 month old) taken during a visit at our house one night recently. She certainly knows how to work the camera...
...but I think she finally grew tired of all the flashing in her face. :)

In the meantime...I think I will do some random posting till I'm ready to go to bed. It's so late (well, just after 11 p.m.)...but this is the latest I've stayed up in a while! We have recently had several great weekends in a row. My mom and stepdad came down weekend before last, along with Brian's mom Peggy. It was so great having them! We hung out, shopped a bit, and ate a LOT. If you haven't tried the new steakhouse at the mall...you definitely should. Brian, mom, and Ken all thought it was the best restaurant steak they've had in a good while. Jeff and Stacey fried catfish that Saturday as well...good stuff! We had a great visit and wish they could come more often...
The weekend before THAT we went to Kansas for a memorial golf tournament for Brian's friend Choke, who was killed in an accident last October. The weather was perfect and I enjoyed spending some time with Brian's friends he used to work with and hang with in Kansas. And it was such an awesome way to honor his friend...there were tons of people there! Here are a few pictures...what a swing...My view most of the day...
Even KU and K-State fans got along on this day...This is Shank. He and his wife Sandy came to visit us one weekend last fall for a razorback game.This is Allen and Teresa, below. Brian and Allen are high school buddies.
Well...off to bed now. 2 posts in one week...new record!! Woohoo!

The past several weekends have been great. What's even better--I counted and there's only 20 more days till we get a semi-permanent, 2 month long weekend!! I can't wait. Thursday night Brian and I went to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings, then to see Iron Man. We enjoyed it, there were lots of funny parts. Friday night we just hung out and ate some tacos I fixed. Saturday we spent the morning at Lowe's buying stuff for our yard; Brian bought me a rose bush and some flowers to plant around the mailbox. He also bought a large planter and a hanging planter for flowers. The weather was perfect for working in the yard and hanging out on the deck with Buster and Jordan. Our little hummingbird friends are even starting to come back. Today we went to Sam's and then I cooked...it has been so nice just being home!!

Last year Brian started trying to teach me how to golf. It was comical, really. If I even hit the ball at all it would go maybe 10 feet and I would have to chase after it, swinging wildly trying to hit the little thing. The weather was so nice this weekend we decided to take advantage and went to the driving range yesterday and today. I have to say out of the two of us I win the Most Improved Award! It's still hit and miss so to speak, but I think I'm getting a little better sometimes. And who knew swinging a golf club could make a person so sore!! It was like a little mini work out. Anyhow, my vision is for us to eventually (many many many years from now) become one of those cute little blue-haired couples who own our own golf cart, wear elastic waist band khaki pants and matching embroidered shirts who spend the days golfing away in Bella Vista...I still have a long ways to go. Some of those little ladies out there meant business.
