After my fun Saturday with Mango, Sunday was even more fun! I ran errands in the morning, then got ready for Alix’s wedding! (If you’ve been reading this blog regularly, you probably have heard Alix’s name a lot. Alix and I interned at Intel together in the summer of 2010 and then both started back full-time in the same group! She is one of my … Continue reading Alix’s wedding!
Get ready for an inundation of blog posts today. I’m going to try & play catch up, before I leave for vacation in…13 hours and get behind again! This past Saturday was RESCUE’s annual “Cinco DOG Mayo” car wash. Although Sunny is always my top choice, I was super excited to have Mango. Mango is a 70+ lb pit bull mix who is vibrant goldey-red … Continue reading Mango!
Uff-dah! SO much going on right now! I know my Grandma was looking forward to hearing about my birthday activities, but I just have way too much on my plate right now to breathe, much less write a wonderful blog post (especially since I didn’t even have time to do anything exciting for my birthday), but the fact that I haven’t updated my blog with … Continue reading Birthday in a nutshell
This past Sunday, I got to take care of two dogs—Sunny and her buddy, Rory. I was a bit nervous about how it would go with two dogs at once, but as you’ll see, it went perfectly! First, Sunny and I spent the day doing some work with Israel (the Israeli workweek is Sun-Thurs), before doing more Europe research. She was very helpful: We made … Continue reading Sunny & Rory
Circa 8th grade, my mom got sucked into an informercial and bought the “Windsor Pilates” DVD’s. I remember spending one summer determined to figure out what all of the hype was about. I was going to become a pilates professional. By day two I had quit. How the heck was I supposed to be focused on breathing rhythmically while moving my limbs at a quicker … Continue reading Pilates
There are a million things I could write about each week– each day, even– but I think it is apparent to everyone that Sunny is my most favorite topic. Other topics, I put off writing about; in regards to Sunny, I could write a novel about her! She is just so. darn. cute! I can’t get over it. The entire time we’re together, I look … Continue reading Sunday with Sunny– what else do I do? 🙂
The past two weeks, I’ve had the honor of helping out at “Farm Day” for the Foundation for Blind Children, here in Phoenix. Farm Day is an annual event where all of the students from the Foundation’s local campuses come to visit a farm in Glendale. Despite their vision impairments, the farm thrills the children’s other senses in a myriad of other ways that they … Continue reading Farm Day!!
This past weekend was also my good friend Alix’s bridal shower! It was the second bridal shower that I’ve been to in the past year– yikes!! The bridal shower was in downtown Phoenix, at the sleek 44 Monroe, where Nadia lives. Nadia’s place has an awesome community room that you can reserve and being the incredible hostess she is, Nadia went above & beyond, having … Continue reading Alix’s Bridal Shower!
This past Sunday, I spend the day with Sadie: Sadie is a 5-year old Doberman Pincher….who is on a diet. You see, she is a “chowhound.” All Sadie wanted to do at Pet Club, was go down the food & treats aisle, trying to rip into bags of food so she could eat. I sort of felt like I was supervising an obese person, … Continue reading Sweet Sadie!
Happy Easter everyone! I’ve been trying all of Lent to find time to write a blog about what I gave up for Lent, and since Lent is over….I suppose now would be the time 🙂 This year, for Lent, I gave up using my phone while driving! This means I wasn’t allowed to: Call anyone Text anyone Google Map anything Email anyone from work Browse … Continue reading Happy (belated) Easter!
