My Lucy is still a crazy puppy, but she is definitely maturing as she rolls through her adolescent months. She's starting to calm down a bit and has stopped nipping at the little guy's heels every second. But she still seems bored. I guess that's just part of being a "teenager" and this too shall pass. Some of what she's been up to these days as a typical teenager...

Loves to Party on the Furniture, Dance on Tables

Embarassed to be Seen With Her Mother in Public - Look at that Face!

She Hates Cleaning Her Room

Just Plain Bored (Quit Taking Pictures of Me Mom)


  1. Oh my goodness, those pictures of Lucy are ADORABLE! I have a 10 month old golden who looks so much like Lucy that they could be sisters. My Lilly hasn't started dancing on tables yet, but she is still quite mischievous!

  2. ..sounds just like me! lol.

  3. She is gorgeous! I'm so partial to goldens, but really she is gorgeous. I love her on the table. So naughty! Love it!

  4. she is so pretty! she looks a whole lot like boudreaux!

  5. What a beautiful puppy! Very clever, and I agree...those doggy teenage years can be tough =).

  6. Wendy, you crack me up! I love this blog! I need to get mine updated. It has been a month!

  7. I have a 15 week old Golden! Your girl is beautiful - it's so fun to see what my girl is heading for...she has so much energy but she's patient and sweet. Kisses to your girl!

  8. You are so funny! I love it. She's a beautiful girl even if she is going through a sassy stage in her life. My puppy just turned one and I think I might have to steal this idea from you. So clever!

  9. That sounds like so much of my Toby.

    He's in his awkward teenage years. He even rolls his eyes at me.

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
