Happy 3rd Birthday to Melvin!

…Yesterday was Melvin’s 3rd Birthday!
Usually I make Melvin a cake, but with our move coming up, I didn’t have all of my baking utensils readily available so we had to switch it up at bit!

I planned a little outing, just the two of us, to celebrate the little guy’s Birthday. It’s funny because dogs have no idea that it’s their Birthday, yet I still love doing a little special something for Mac and Melvin on their day. This year I took Melvin to Lofty Dog and a dog park about 15 min away from home.

Lofty Dog is a locally owned pet store for cats and dogs with unique goods, local treats, and specialty food. They also raise awareness and funding for animal shelters around Austin. When we went in they had a lot of homemade goodies for Melvin to pick from. Melvin chose 2 cupcake cookies, a three tier cake cookie and a fire hydrant cookie. They also have a scoop section where we picked out some homemade everyday treats and a rawhide bar. Melvin’s senses had to have been going crazy in there!

We ventured over to a dog park in Pflugerville called Harris Ridge. To our surprise there weren’t many dogs there. Melvin romped around a bit and waited for more pups to join him. Eventually a few more dogs make it out and moseyed on over to play.
After about an hour we made our way back home to celebrate with our other halves. We broke open the treats and Mac and Melvin went to town.

I’d say it was a pretty successful Birthday!


Happy Birthday to my 34 year old sweetie!

This past weekend at the Cowboys game… seriously this picture is too much!

I have to pop in real quick to wish my very special Christmas baby a Happy Birthday! We started celebrating last night by joining our friends Thane and Amy for dinner at Din Ho Chinese BBQ(Scott’s favorite!) and then having yummy yellow cake and chocolate frosting for dessert. I scored in the husband/dessert dept because we both love that cake combo!

Unfortunately, I had to work this morning, but I did make him some cinnamon rolls for breakfast before I was out the door at 7. He’s spending the day with his parents at the Movie House seeing the new hobbit movie, before meeting up with friends tonight for drinks at Craft Pride! Lots of celebrations for my 34 year old hubby! Also, I see lots of Mario Kart racing in our near future. Can you guess what I got him for his Birthday?!

…Wii U
