Pics & Picks

Thank you all for your excitement about the A. Tierney giveaway, and all the kind birthday wishes! My day and weekend were both great, and I'll upload some pictures of Friday night festivities and the trip to the mountains to watch Little's dominant performance in the Lake Logan Triathlon to celebrate her 50th birthday, but before we get to the pics, Random.org picked the giveaway winner.

BLISSFULLY ENAMORED!

If y'all haven't had a chance to check out her blog, you must click over there now. Hilary has the cutest blog, and she designs the most gorgeous frames I've ever seen. Take a few minutes and go say hi!


Now, on to weekend photographs. So the plan was to finish my gorgeous new dress in time to wear to dinner and drinks, but notsomuch. In my frenzied stitching, I had royally screwed something up, and the dress was completely out of whack and alignment. Despite shedding a few tears of frustration and ripping many seams, it just wasn't meant to be. We were running oh so late (which is not like me a bit), so I threw on jeans, a cleavage-baring black top (scandalous) and heavy black beads. Definitely not my most favorite look (probably because I don't do so well when I have to change my plans last minute), but a good time was had by all.

Saturday morning, Little, Daddy and I traipsed to the mountains of North Carolina where Little and several family friends were competing in a sprint triathlon. I'm such a mountains girl, and the scenery and town did not disappoint. We enjoyed delicious dinner and went to bed early, since Sunday was the big day. Despite torrential downpours, the tri went on as scheduled, and the birthday girl performed amazingly well and finished 1st in her age group!

And thanks for checking on Kingston, he actually has demonic mange which is not contagious. It happens when a dogs natural mites they all carry begin to irritate the skin it usually happens to a puppy born with a weak immune system. Flare ups can be caused by hormones and since he is growing and developed man parts a breakout happened. He is on cream for 30 days if that doesn't work then will do dip baths once it is cleared he will be neutered and good to go!
