Oh happy day

Last week Derek had a birthday.
I'm pretty darn happy this guy was born 26 years ago, so celebrations had to be made.

While Derek was out golfing (his favorite past time) I prepared the surprises ...

Like a yummy cake - I used this recipe.

And a delicious meal including a signature drink featuring two of Derek's favorite flavors - strawberry and basil - recipe here.

And balloons and other birthday decor that Arnold adored ...

until he popped one.

There was some music and dancing.

And of course candles to blow out.

Happy birthday love!

The cutest time crunch

Allow me to introduce you to one of the major culprits of my lack of time ...

Meet Arnold. He's our new 3-month-old Vizsla puppy and Derek and I are pretty much obsessed with his little face. As in we've already taken about 500 pictures mamarazzi obsessed ...

 Or make-up-songs about him and talk to him in silly voices obsessed ...

Even triple-spoon sleeping arrangements obsessed.

Let's call it puppy love.

Making a comeback

If you're here and you're reading this after my several-month hiatus, you are AMAZING! Although I've taken the last few months off from blogging myself, I haven't stopped reading all of your awesome blogs. It's been nice to enjoy the blogosphere without worrying about what I'm going to post, and my crazy busy life just got in the way of spending additional hours beyond my workday at my computer each night.

After reflecting on the time investment and what I enjoy most about blogging, I've decided to begin again, albeit quite casually, blogging on the fly when I have something I want to share or a memory I want to capture for my own benefit. Hopefully you enjoy reading along!

Thanks again for stopping by! One of my favorite things about blogging is reading your lovely comments checking out your own fabulous blogs.
