My drive to the river and beach...

I got up very early a few days ago and decided to put Shadow in the truck, grab a coffee at Dunkin Donuts and go for a nice drive towards the river. It was gorgeous out!!

Then, I made my way to the beach. The sun was shining, people were walking and I was watching haha... This beach is a "no dogs allowed" area so Shadow stuck her head out of the window and was people/bird watching also Lol! This is like my little paradise... It's free, peaceful and relaxing! I ♥ the beach :)


Ok, I'm managing to get a couple of posts up of pictures that I took lately... Yes, I'm behind! Still LOTS more to come, but hopefully now at least you all can see what I see everyday...

These lovely 4 yrs old twins (Riley & Clayton) are my friends Melissa & Ian's kids. They are so adorable! This was taken the day before Adam left for Czech Republic. Clayton was very upset that "Mister Adam" was leaving. It was fun to see the twins give Adam HUGE hugs :)

My friend Kim, who lives a skip and a hop away from my house, had a yard sale. It was a community event and all her neighbors were doing the same. Kim's daughter, Peyton also 4 yrs old, set up her cute lemonade stand which she called "Yumm-a-lade Stand"!

I met my friend Kristy (who use to work for Nascar) for lunch and we had a delicious meal at Aunt Catfish. It was fun to hangout with her little monkey Keaton. Look at those sweet cheeks!! It was so great to get that time to really sit and cover the stuff that's going on in our lives. I love those talks :) They are my favorites!

Big girl!

A few pictures that I've managed to take of Shadow rolling over from one side to another. I enjoy capturing what I get to see all day long. Shadow is an incredible dog who is 70.2 lbs now!!!

La Fiesta!!

Last night, we celebrated Katrina's birthday!! It was kind of impossible NOT to laugh your head off with these girls, and have the best time. I've had the privilege of walking alongside them and what times we had... What would I have done without their incredible support & friendship as I navigate these weeks without my husband (who is playing hockey in Czech Republic). Thanks girls and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Katrina!

p.s. sorry for the blurry cell phone pics...

HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY SHADOW!!!!! Wow, I can't believe she is one year old. We got her when she was 8 weeks and I can truly say that she's been nothing but fun fun fun! Today was her day, of course! She got treats, toys and 2 full hours at the dog park (SPOILED). She brings so much joy to Adam & I :) We adore our Shadow girl!!! ♥

Just like twins!

I totally forgot about these pictures!! This is a dog park I went to in Orlando with Shadow while Adam was skating. This is before Adam left for Czech Republic. I was sitting down and watching (who I thought was) Shadow. All of a sudden, I realize it's another German Shepherd that looked exactly like her!!! Tyson and Shadow played together like brother and sister. It was so adorable!

Today, I watched episode 3 of The Gretchen Project. If you watched The Housewives of Orange County, you will remember Gretchen Rossi! Her discussion topics come from her viewers which usually relates to beauty and cosmetic treatments. It's an ok show but I prefer the Housewives :)

Hotel Room

Adam sent me a picture of his hotel room in Czech Republic!! It's cozy until he can get an apartment for the season. I am looking forward to talking with him. He landed (after a 13 hour flight) and went right to practice. I am uploading pictures from yesterday. They will be up shortly :)

Czech Republic

My husband is off tomorrow for the hockey season. He will be playing in Czech Republic. I am sad that I am not able to go with him. We will drive to Miami together in the morning, then off he goes until March 2010. I will MISS him dearly and hope to get my permit to travel soon so I can join him. It's been a hectic few days getting everything ready for his departure... But we did it!! Will give you another update later. Off to do the very last minute errands!
