Snickers Cake

Just b'cuz.

Exercise and Dogercise

Pictures Taken: January 17, 2011

Basically, every other day I've been getting up with Juan, Nessie and Amba in the mornings to jog. Until recently, we've been going to the middle school near my house and using the basketball court/field they have there. I bring Cal so he can run around and get some energy out and the last time we went (well, last LAST time) Amba brought one of his best friends (read: boyfriends), Whistler.

Whistler was one of the first friends Cal had when we got him.



Amba's friend owns him and he's an amazing dog, smart as anything and so handsome.

We took them with us to the middle school and while we stretched they stood around...

...and when we started to jog they followed us, stopping every so often to sniff around.

When we were done we picked up Maro and all loaded into two cars with the dogs (plus Nessie's dog Klifford, Cal's other boyfriend ahem I mean lover OOPS I MEAN FRIEND!!!) and went to the dog park. We waited for Nessie and Juan and Klifford to meet us at the dog park.

Whistler likes to hang back with us two-leggers and get lovins...

...unlike my son who revels in being a doggy whore...

Cal wasn't as good as he usually was so we had to leave early, but... look at this beautiful girl!

I can't remember her name but wow wow wow she was so precious. So sweet and friendly and SO ZOMG BEAUTIFUL I couldn't believe it. Woulda totally stolen her if I had the chance.

Hadda leave though with the brat in tow.

Run Challenge

I could go on and on about how cliche the whole "HERP A DERP IMMA LOSE WEIGHT" New year's Resolution is, buuut I think it'd be easier just to say, as of January 4th (ha!) I'm commiting to getting up at the buttcrack of dawn (8am ) to run. Er, well jog.

Okay, more like start off at a nice jog and end up in a spluttering mess less than 20 minutes later. But hey, I'm trying.

You cannot imagine the groans and moans and sounds of GUTTURAL UNPLEASANTRIES that come out of my mouth as I strive to get in shape. Sad as it is, I haven't missed a day and Cal really seems to enjoy himself.

Dunno why I haven't taken pictures of one of the mornings yet... Cause of course I don't do it ALONE. Juan was there with me the first day and then Ness and Amber were with me the second day. It's a pathetic group what with two semi-athletes and two lard hags. You'd think the sight of us would just scream out a name, but we still haven't decided what to call our little team... Oh well.

I had to give my hip a day off yesterday so I joined Ness and Juan at the field just to walk around and get Cal tired but after we went to Denny's!

Why you ask? We don't even know.

I call this picture "Juevo Hands" cause what he's doing above is in anticipation for eggs. DELICIOUS NUTRITIOUS CHOLESTEROLISH EGGS.

Later on after Nessie dropped Juan off at work, I went with Amba to her house to try and fix her computer. Took about two hours for me to even get to work on it (her house is full of delicious/furry/scaly distractions) but I fiiiixed it.

Then we settled down for some Mario Bros.

Half-time meant foodies which can be summed up by Princess Freya:

Since I've used it already so many times in this post, I'd have to say yesterday was a delicious day.


And no, it's not cause I'm a fatty.

Ish Good

Pho place on New Years!

Juan/Ducky was there too but, for some reason, is never photographed.

New Year's Eve

My NYE was spent mostly with Cal and Nessie. I took Cal to the field at the middle school so he could run around and play and I could get some action shots of him jumping and being a fruit. I brought back him back again when Nessie came around so we could try her camera out. I ended up taking a crapton of pictures, like always, but I'm getting better at weeding out the less-than-spectacular ones (not that any or OMGAMAZING, but it's better than keeping 300+ pictures everyday )

Here are some of my favorites:

Aaaaaand a few gifs!

Later on after I did some light shopping, Amba and I went to Cafe Coyote to GET OUR DRINK ONNNNNN

Just kidding. We just went for awesome (FREE) food. I wish I had taken a picture of my plate, it was monstrous.

Omggg it was gooood. And they gave us little party favor things. WIN WIN!!!
