A weekend in review

The boys and I had a pretty good weekend. I finally got everything in order for the wedding shower on Friday. Jack came back on Friday (more on that later). My brother-in-law is getting married in August and I decided to throw her a wedding shower. Traditionally I am awful at throwing parties. I turn into a giant stress machine. No man or dog is safe from my stress-induced tornado. 
This was Cody's reaction to my banging around the kitchen during a baking streak of 6 dozen cookies. 

My husband just beat haste to the living room in retreat. 
But the party went off with a hitch and S (the bride) had an awesome time. I slept for a week. Or at least it felt like a week. Saturday morning we spent tim
e walking and cuddling, glad to have Jack back in our house. Cody kept licking his ears like he was so excited that Jack came back to play. Sunday was DH's birthday and the boys decided it was the best idea to give him a birthday wake-up call by sitting on his head. DH got fried egg sandwiches for breakfast and the boys got cheesy scrambled eggs. All in all a good weekend. 

Plus my roses bloomed! This is a big deal for someone who has a brown thumb. I have never grown anything, I may be good with dogs, plants not so much.

That's a beautiful rose! You're like me - I normally can't keep anything alive, but somehow my dogs have made it 4 years and counting.
