Happy Birthday to ME!!!

Well, it's official! I am 26 years old! Today was a wonderful day - I really enjoyed my birthday falling on a Sunday! We had lunch at AJ's Seafood after church - delicious! And, of course, I had my Sunday afternoon nap! But we also did the normal birthday stuff - cards, presents, cake, etc. And I probably sang Happy Birthday to myself 25 times! Ha!

HR Neeli...

Wayne and Neeli traveled to Grenada this weekend to compete in a hunt test! Neeli passed both days! Go Neeli! Even better, she has accumulated the 40 points required to earn the title "Hunt Retriever"! So, she now has letters before her name HR Maggy's Super Black Benelli. I really am not sure who is more excited, Wayne or Neeli!

Visiting with Kailee!

My mom (aka Nana) and I had a wonderful weekend with my niece, Kailee Marie! She is growing so fast, and she is so smart! And, of course, she still looks exactly like my brother, and she has his personality - she never meets a stranger! She loves books, laughing, and playing with Nova and her toys!

At first she was not sure about me taking photos of her! But you can see, she warmed up to it very quickly! Here she is doing her fake laugh!

Once I got her going, she was cracking me up! She knows how to be entertaining! Isn't she a doll?

Y is for Yogurt!

Okay - I did it! I offically shopped for organic groceries at Kroger! Actually, I had fun! My friend Amy joined me, and she was a big help! My favorite discovery was organic yogurt tubes! Although I eat yogurt nearly every morning, I had never eaten it out of tubes. However, Amy conveniced me to get it a try! So, this morning I had my first yogurt tube - I had blueberry! It was delicious!!! And it is so nice to not use a spoon! You should give them a try!

Our Retriever!

The Kearney Park Hunt Test was this weekend! Neeli did such a great job running her first "seasoned" tests (the middle level of a hunt test)!
On Saturday Wayne had to work the "finished" test (the highest level of a hunt test), so Neeli ran as the "test" dog! Wayne was nervous she would act crazy, but she was perfect! Too bad it did not count toward a PASS on "seasoned" water bc Neeli did not pass her water test - I think it was bc I was not there! She likes for her mom to cheer her on! She did pass the land with ease. However, she has to PASS both to get a ribbon.
So Sunday, Wayne did not run her as the "honor" dog! :) Good job Wayne! She aced the land test and did great on her water test as well! So, Neeli has her first "seasoned" PASS and received a beautiful ribbon! Go Neeli!!!

X is for Xtreme Nutrition!

While in Columbus, Leigha and I stayed with Melissa! It was like a huge slumber party - we had so much fun! Melissa is an esthestican so she believes in "all natural" skin care and nutrition, so we began with a day at the spa then Melissa treated us by preparing an organic dinner - we had spaghetti! It was so entertaining and educational to shop for organic food and learn all of the benefits (even though it is a bit more expense)! And, of course, the food was wonderful!!! So, I have decided to try it myself (but I am not going to tell Wayne)! I am going to start with organic milk, yogurt, chips, salsa, and boxed lunches. I will let you know how it goes!!!

W is for the W!

This weekend I traveled to Columbus for the Lockheart Preference Party - my social club! I was honored to serve as the Preference Party speaker - it was so great to recount all that Lockhearts mean to me and reminisce on all our fun!!! Also, I enjoyed seeing some of my favorite W girls and meeting all of the potential Lockhearts! Go Lockhearts!!!

Although I was the speaker, my favorite part of the Preference Party will always be the skit! Our skit is Alice in Lockheart Land! And it is adorable! This is me with my friend Lydia, the cat!
