from our weekend

We had an awesome weekend that started off with some much needed rain followed by some cooler weather.  And by cooler I'm talking in the 90's which after months of Texas 100's I'll happily take. 

This allowed us to get out a bit and go for some walks.  I had a moment of insanity where I thought I was superwoman and could take the pugs by myself with Declan.  Yeah not so much.  I'm sure we looked like a freak show.  I had pugs going every which way and a screaming baby who wasn't so pleased at all the stopping we had to do to mark our territory.  Pug also had a hard time grasping that concept that if you dart in front of the stroller while we are walking you will get hit.  So from now on we'll be walking in shifts.

I also made a trip to one of those big baby consignment sales.  I'd never been and didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised.  I was able to score lots of deals on some baby gap and tea collection that looks brand spankin new.  I'm a fan now.  I'm also a huge fan of Moxie Jean.  If you haven't checked it out you must.  I've gotten some amazing stuff for Declan off that site.  I learned pretty quickly I'm crazy to pay retail for some of his stuff for as fast as he grows out of it. 

I'm sad to see our weekend fly by so fast, but I am pretty excited for the return of fall TV this week.  I've missed Parenthood dearly and am excited for some new ones premiering.  I have high hopes for Hostages and Robin William's new one.  So, my Tivo is getting put back to work this week.

You are a brave woman! It's hard enough to walk two pugs with all their criss-crossing!

Walking 2 dogs is ENOUGH of a challenge, much less a baby in a stroller! Hey - there's an invention - something that can strap onto the stroller... maybe not. I can see my dogs toppling the stroller over.

I'm looking forward to the Robin Williams show myself.
