ok alum out there reading this blog -
we were pretty low key this weekend! i did have the fabulous opportunity to hang out on saturday evening for megan's (the one in the veil!) bach party. we had a fabulous time in our pj's eating, hanging out, and slaughtering some karaoke. fun stuff.

yes, this birthday is made up (it's gotta be close - based on the humane society estimated ages)
yes, arlo is cuter. and softer. and more cuddly.
yes, we love roxy more.
it's all her tri colored coat, ghetto booty, thickey thick body, slutty positions (GIRL SHOWS HER AREA TO ANYONE and FREQUENTLY), crazy faced glory. we can't help it. arlo is just way too normal.
yes, we go running (we can run about 2 miles at a time before we slow down a little. luckily so do our runners).
yes, we like to swim. and get into ticks. lots of ticks.
yes, arlo is a big thunder storm hating (all eighty plus pounds in the lap), is obsessed with his duckie (we keep buying him more b/c roxy destroys them) sissy, and he is terrified of vacuums and big red yoga balls. terrified. of a yoga ball.
we love him anyway. just not as much.
yes, we got them birthday bones. i think they knew it was a special day.
read about their rescue here and getting to know their home/owners here and obeying here. (cute pictures if you click!).
happy 2nd birthday arlo and roxy. welcome to your formative years.
we also got in an enormous war resulting in many phone calls to friends and family across the country. you know that dance that you do at weddings? where you snap your hands together, flap your arms under your armpits, and shake it... you know.. the DUCK dance. at least that is what we call it in St. Louis. Aparantly the rest of the country calls it the CHICKEN dance. hmmm... what do you call it? OH YEA. it's the duck dance. karl says STL is worse than texas with its STL pride/doingthingstheSTLway... i can't say i entirely disagree.
i followed up my night of alchoholic carb intake with approximately one loaf of carbety carb bread. grr. oh well.
it was a great weekend but we are glad to be home safe and sound after some flight delays. we kenneled our dogs for the first time ever this weekend (TOO HOT!). It was very sad - they looked shell shocked when we left them and were quite excited to be home.
karl and i have tomorrow OFF work. HA. take that.
this dude (who abides) did a write up of our respective bloggity blogs and it makes karl and i sound a little less lame and nerdy than we are ;) haha no but it was awesome. he is doing a blogging tour thru little rock (which is a pretty fun concept; me likey) and there are some other muy interesante little rockians in their respective internet corners of the city. the full link here.
ALSO my sister has started a blog. okay i started it for her. BUT SHE ASKED. it is thus entitled: http://www.butterednoodlesandpepsi.blogspot.com/ in honor of her love for carbohydrates, cafienne, and parmesean cheese. SO GO SAY HELLO.

i have some possible answers (self diagnosed! ha!) about my chest pain which i have been reluctant to share on the blog. because it's embarrassing. because some people who read don't know i WAS a smoker. yesterday was my official one month of no smoking. so i have been reading all these articles about anxiety and withdraw symptoms (including chest tightness and shortness of breath - some people have to "learn" how to breathe deep again and i think i might fall in that category - i guess smokers only breath deep when the are inhaling on a cigarette so when they stop they have to practice deep breathing. who knew?). as most of you know i hadn't even been smoking very much (mainly socially but that is still smoking). I went cold turkey july 4th - which means more withdraw symptoms and faster. ANYWAY i am still monitoring myself (blah) and the tightness... taking deep breaths does feel weird - it's so clean.... ha! i'm not that surprised with my reactions - aparently i am very sensitive to drugs - putting them in or taking them out!
anyway i thought quitting would be a lot easier but it's not. i am just starting to tell people so please don't be mad at me if i slip. however, after all this chest crap, picking up a cigarette seems pretty silly.
has anyone seen high school musical? it's on TV right now. and i'm watching it. yep. i am.
anyone else have any news? will A Rod hit #500? the cards are six games behind the stinking cubs in the nlc. the cubs!?!? i mean really. the gap is closing. it needs to close faster. and the brewers don't need to beat the mets tonight. my dogs are dirty. they need a bath. my laundry is clean but NOT FOLDED (why oh why is the folding part so incredibly difficult?). it feels like we always have something TO CLEAN. house, car, dogs, selves.. bLah. i think we are going back to NYC for our anniversary. may become a tradition!! one of the days we might just stay there.
