Today was a really fun day! I didn’t set my alarm, so I didn’t wake up until I was ready. Nice!! What a luxury that was. Then I got to talk with Mom for a long time. Usually one or the other of us is running somewhere, so it was fun to just chat. (Well, I think I chatted more than she did. Next time I call, I’ll let her do all the talking.) Then Mike & I went to an adoption party for a little boy some friends of ours adopted. What a cutie he is! He’s all boy and very active – my favorite kind! We got to catch up with a lot of old friends.
On the way to their house, Mike & I stopped to pick up a newspaper, and in the coupon section there was a recipe for Italian sausage pasta. The picture looked so good, so I decided that was going to be dinner. It was a hit for all the hungry kids – and two hungry parents!
About a week or so ago, we noticed that Hoss was having some issues that looked like a reaction to wheat. Since we make all his food and it’s wheat free, we were a little puzzled – until Mike checked the ingredients on Hoss’s dog treats. Every single one had wheat. Rachel bought a doggie treat cookbook, so she and Jon made some treats for the dogs tonight. The pups waited as patiently as they could for them to get done – right outside the kitchen door. Toby had been sleeping, so the camera flash caused him to squint a little in the photo.
They loved their treats, which were kind of cheese twists made from rice flour. Yum!
The party today was kind of a combination adoption/birthday party, so here’s a card I made for my friend An.
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Bright Blossoms; Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry; Paper: Summer Smooches designer series paper; Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White card stock; Other: Summer Smooches fabric designer brads; punches – 3/4″ circle, 5-petal flower, blossom, large oval, scallop oval, dotted scallop ribbon border; paper piercing tool, mat pack, stampin’ dimensionals
This was fun – and very different from what I usually make. I love the bright colors in the paper. It was nice to step out of my comfort zone for awhile.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
