grey goodness...

oh my grey goodness...

the perfect ending to not such a great week...

was this lovely grey goodness...

I'm not kidding you all...

my love affair I was going to post today was put on hold because...this love affair that has been going on for about...

lets see here

over a year now

finally came true on my birthday last Friday...

It sure did...

we were eating dinner at the table and I looked outside...

my grey goodness I have been almost slightly stalking this past year...

walked by

on the verge of not sounding stalker-ish...

everytime I see grey goodness...I stop to stare...all around my house

Without further ado...

meet my grey goodness

now keep in mind...how I imagined our picture together for over a year did not turn out how I dreamed it to be

reality did not equal what I imagined here...

no offense...hubby was taking the pictures...and well....he really is kind of banned from cameras because heads get cut off....legs get cut off...he gets me where I looked semi-drugged or my mouth is in mid-sentence or mid-bite if I'm eating kind of thing...

I'm not complaining...well yes I am...but you see I had to wait until hubby was home so I could kindly ask for my picture you know with "grey goodness"

Because a guy owns "grey goodness," and if I turned on my charm to get a picture...he may think I am hitting on him and not realize my love affair is with Mency the dog {spelling of his name is not accurate here}

Friday was sorta rainy and wet so grey goodness was also not looking his handsome self as he usually does.

But here you go because I did say without further ado like 5 minutes ago already didn't I?

 here is Mency...my love...


Isn't he lovely?

I told hubby you know our bedroom I am redoing...{taking me eternity by the way but who's keeping track other than me, right?}...but that's beside the point...he would look so good...snuggling beneath my chair...or make a great pillow for the girls and I...and Miss Cadence too

He didn't buy it...

I wonder why?

which is partially why I thought a picture of me with grey goodness would help...

I'm told men are visual creatures...

so here's your visual honey...


don't you want to see your wife holding this dog...walking this dog...loving on this dog...girls playing with this dog...girls getting dragged walking this dog? me getting dragged walking this dog for that matter...

I've got to say it's NOT the best picture of me...after all we were eating dinner at home because my youngest allergies were so bad she was doing horrible ...poor sweet thing...but that's why her little nose is so red...and those glossy eyes...


didn't stop her energy though...


and yes my hubby cut off the legs of my grey goodness...when we were taking the pictures such a commotion in the neighborhood was caused that everyone wanted to see...other dogs...neighbors...I don't blame them but I didn't get to do the picture review you know...and say "take 2" honey on the pictures...

I told Bobby...darn...I should have invited them in the house for pictures...he said the owner would have thought I was totally nuts...and that's true...outdoor pictures turn out better too...but you know...

if I ask for a re-do of pictures...he will know I'm a sorta stalker of his dog

because the picture that hubby got of of the dog by himself...he also caught the owners crotch in the picture...and I said to Bobby "at least said you could have gotten the owner in the picture too...better than a close up of the crotch I tried to edit out:)"


my family thinks I'm nuts for loving this dog so much...

but I'm being honest...I love this dog...total complete seriousness...

don't you see this as our new addition?

but a big thanks to my parents and family{Bobby} for a great weekend...we celebrated at home on Friday and Saturday after my booth my parents made tappas for me...my very favorite! You all pampered me way too much than I deserved this weekend...thank you!

one of my very favorite moments {funniest} was on Friday...Madison running upstairs because I was upstairs preparing for Saturday {I was not allowed downstairs because hubby was still wrapping gifts and icing the cake}...
Madison running upstairs saying "Mama!!! Mama!!! Daddy broke the cake
I lost it laughing...
Bobby doesn't bake...and he baked two cakes over the weekend...


in case you are wondering...grey goodness is a wolfhound

I'm glad you had a wonderful b-day! And since my mommy taught me "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all", I won't share any of my thoughts about the dog. Tee Hee! :)

Happy, happy birthday sweet Martha!!! That is one big dog! My poor son is allergic to dogs so I think a dog that big would send him into a complete allergy attack! Sounds like you had a fun weekend :)

Hugs ~

That is not a dog, that is a hairy horse! But if you love him, then he should be a part of your family.

Looks like you had a nice weekend. You have a lovely family.
