Fall is Here!

Fall has arrived here in Colorado! Monday evening, after Jason got home from work, we drove up to the mountains to see the aspens turning. They weren’t as spectacular as last year (I think the recent snow we received may have messed things up) but it was still beautiful.

Like I said, it has already started to snow in the mountains! This last weekend, some areas of Colorado received 3 feet of snow! Of course, Jason is super excited–means that ski season is that much closer. Here we are touching our first snow of the season!

The blending of two seasons

Welcome to the last week of the Bloggy Parade of homes. The theme for this week is patios/yards, but I missed last week, which was bonus rooms, so I will add that as well.

Our “bonus room” is probably the room where we spend most of our time. It is our tiny third bedroom that we are using as our office. Our computer is in there, along with my favorite thing–my scrapbook table!

Here is a closer look of my scrapbooking/crafting mess!

And my current project–a Daisy scrapbook!

Jason spends a lot of time here–he loves messing with the computer. Actually, I spend a lot of time here as well, reading blogs of course! I think I may be addicted–it is so easy to waste lots of time reading blogs and myspace!

And now for the outside of our house. We have a teeny, tiny yard on the side of our house. The houses in our neighborhood are extremely close together, so we have very little yard. But I have come to appreciate that, because I don’t particularly like yardwork, and it seems we can hardly get the yardwork done that we need to, even with our tiny yard. So here is a view of the yard–this picture shows how narrow it really is. It is kind of dark, because I took it last night as the sun was going down.
There’s always a pug around to see what I am doing!

We have a little patio on the side of our house off the dining room.

We purchased this grill over the summer and LOVE it! We do quite a bit of grilling!

Here is our front porch. I begged Jason for patio furniture, but in all reality we very rarely sit out here. But it looks nice! Notice the pug planter on the table–my mother-in-law sent me that for Christmas one year. So cute!

Well, thank you all so much for touring our home. We really love it and love sharing it with others. Thanks also to Shannon for hosting the tour!

Too Funny

Today, Jason sent me an email titled “Why Dogs Bite People.” Check out the pictures that were attached….

Of course, my favorites are the pugs (especially the black spider pug) but they are all pretty cute and funny. Which ones do you like?

New Doggie Bed

Until yesterday, we only had one big dog bed for Daisy and Oscar. Well, Daisy also has her “baby bed” but it is pretty small so she only uses it occasionally. But both of the dog beds are upstairs, so I have a blanket in the kitchen and one in the living room. Jason decided he is tired of the blankets laying around, so we decided to get a dog bed for downstairs.

This is a yucky picture, but the dog bed is green and looks like a little couch. It is cute! I am not sure what the pugs think but hopefully they will get used to it. We found it pretty cheap at WalMart, so it isn’t great quality, but it will serve its purpose. I will try to get a better picture soon!

Well, I can’t think of anything exciting to title this post, so I am going to leave it title-less.

Last Thursday and Friday, I attended a diabetes conference in Cheyenne, WY. I learned lots of new, good information and spent some time outside work with some of my co-workers, which was fun.

One thing about the conference I really enjoyed was a dinner presentation from Matt Hoover! If you don’t know who he is, he won the second season on “The Biggest Loser.” He talked about being morbidly obese and losing that amazing amount of weight. I found it very exciting and inspirational!

Jason bought himself an early birthday gift this last weekend–he bought tickets to see Andrea Bocelli! He is coming to town December 9, and we are going to see him! Jason found tickets in row 6, but they would have put an $800 dent in our bank account. No way mister, not for one night of entertainment! So he had to settle for several rows back, but we are still very excited!
