Life's Little Details

Life lately according to my Instagram photos...
Hydrangeas & Hearts
It's nice to come home to such a warm and friendly welcome! Beesly gives the best hugs. / Pink pants and green flats.
Have courage. / Blue skies.
Guilty pleasure courtesy of Bravo TV. / Weekend rewards -- new magazines, a fresh book, Julep polish, and hand cream.
A picture I received from Flyboy goofing around on the plane. I missed that mug! / Bright work ensemble. 
My future's so bright, I've got to wear shades. Actually, the sunrise at Puna is blinding. / Prinstagram photos spark creativity.
Love this gnome -- a gift from my parents! / It doesn't look like she gets much attention at all.
Sunday snacks and blogging. / Pink peonies = perfection.
The highlight of my weekend? Photos of mom and dad at a Rascal Flatts concert. They are the best people I know! I miss them.
Happy Monday, dearest friends! How was your weekend? Mine was busy -- so busy, I only sat down to watch Bravo once. That's typically how I measure my productivity level; it seems to be the most accurate. 'Twas a real shame to spend such a little amount of time in the Clubhouse with Andy and my BFF housewives, but I'm proud of what I accomplished. What was I doing? Well, thanks for asking! I was busy preparing for our guests. I went to the grocery store twice because I figured it would be easier to break my load into two trips. I'm saving my final trip for this afternoon -- I opted to hold off on buying produce and dairy products. Third time's a charm, right? In all honesty, I wanted everything to be super fresh -- things tend to go bad quickly at Lil' Puna.

On the bright side, the house is officially stocked with gobs of snacks, bug spray, and SPF. The bedding and towels have been washed, the house is de-furred (is that a word?), the car sparkles, and the dogs have been bathed. Primping Beesly took 2.5 hours, and I'm starting to wonder if it would be worth the money to just get her groomed. Luckily, I scored major brownie points for giving her my undivided attention. Lately, she's been rather sassy and acts as though I've neglected her. She'll flash her sad eyes at me, and next thing I know I'm laying on the floor with a giant fur ball when I have a perfectly comfortable couch behind me. Oh, for the love of dogs! And by the the photos above and the way I'm writing, you've probably forgotten that I have a second dog, Tripp. He's been a real pill lately -- extra skittish, antisocial, and hoarding toys -- but that's par for the course. In fact, I tried to snap a quick photo of him to include in today's post and he went and hid. Thank goodness Flyboy got home last night! After a crazy busy weekend, I needed some relief.

Alright, enough rambling for now! Even though I'll be busy with my in-laws, you can expect regular posts on the blog.

Have a merry Monday!
