Breakfast Burritos

Bob and I ran our 2nd 5K of the year on Saturday. It was in a local neighborhood, and it benefited The House of Hope, a local charity. We both beat our time from the previous 5K in January. My goal is to run a race each month. Right now, I'm at a 00:9:52 mile.

After the race, we came home and Bob made the best breakfast burritos. My husband rocks! I love him so much!!!

Old News, New News

This is old news to us, but new news to you (well, some of you...)!
In December, Bob and I attended his company Christmas party in Birmingham, AL. It was a lot of fun. The best part of the entire night was watching my husband accept an award for Employee of the Year!!! I was so proud of him!

The company gave out two awards, one for the production side (Bob) and one for the operational side.
I was the photographer that night, and unfortunately most of the pictures were blurry. This is the one good shot I have of him with his award. And, by the way, he was joking around in the picture, which is why he looks so funny.

Congrats Bob!!!

No more dog park for us...

Ok, so remember my earlier post about the dog park? And, how I mentioned it can be chaotic at times? Well, we are now boycotting the dog park. Bob and I took Winston this past Sunday. As usual, there were a million dogs there. Things started off fine, but then went south pretty fast. Winston was off in his own world (as usual, while at the park). We think it's funny, because he pays us no attention, it's like he has ADD! He really enjoys running up and down the beach, and playing fetch with other owners and their dogs...
I'm totally blabbing right now...back to the chaos. So, Bob and I were sitting there laughing at Winston's happiness. When all of a sudden, a melee broke out right in front of us. And, right there, in the midst of it all, a poor yellow lab was getting his ear bitten off by a pit. Ok, I'm being overly dramatic, but it was definitely a dog fight! And, to top it off, there were a dozen other dogs wrapped up in this madness too. My gut instinct kicked in, and I headed towards the pack (along with several other people). I was determined to save that yellow lab - poor guy!!! And, if Bob hadn't grabbed me, I would've jumped right in the middle of it all. I got reprimanded by husband, but rightfully so. Who knows if the pit would have bitten me?!?

So, after all that, and more, we decided to not return. Winston is always so dirty too. It's just not worth it. Plus, he has a few friends in the neighborhood he plays with. And, we usually give him a daily walk.

*Sigh...* I feel better now. I was feeling guilty of our decision, but writing about it makes me feel better. :)

Hardwood Floors!

Yesterday, we spent most of our day talking about hardwood floors for the house. Bob had done some shopping around the day before, and wanted to show me what he had found. We trekked over to Lowe's and Home Depot. We have decided to put down bamboo flooring. We do not agree on the color yet, but we have awhile to make a decision. He likes a really light color, almost blonde-ish called "natural." I like the next darkest shade up, "spice." We are hoping we can find a color that is in-between. Until then, I'm taking votes to see which is the better color. Which color do you like?
