Still Nothin'

Just thought I'd check in and complain that we still haven't gotten a new battery charger. I'm heading to my Grandma's house in Logan, Utah later this week for Thanksgiving and I'll have to borrow some batteries from my parents so I can still take pictures.

I'm pretty excited to go to my Grandma's, but I always am. I used to go all the time growing up, but then I got older and had to get a job to pay for stuff, and that doesn't always allow me to just head down to my grandma's!  I love my Grandma. She's so cute. :)

My camera doesn't work right now, but that doesn't mean we aren't capturing things. We have a lot more videos now (Which I can't load onto my laptop because the usb ports don't work...lol But, Kelly's brother can do it and put them on a disc for us.) and I've still got my camera phone, and other people taking pictures. so this post wont be picture-less. (But they do center around Clyde...)

We went to a cold Pug Meet on Saturday, so we bundled him up...

He was still pretty cold though, so his Uncle Dan tried to keep him warm.


This one is from my phone, this was his first time in the snow!


I have a video of Clyde catching snowflakes from the other night that I'll have to try and load. It's way cute. Maggie's doing good, she's still playing with Clyde and still loves food. I'm not sure if I mentioned this, but we also got her spayed last month, and she recovered nicely. :)


Here's Maggie at the Pug Meet. Thanks to Sam for taking the pictures and uploading them on the meetup site! :)

Brodie is still Brodie and he loves to play. Now that it's getting too cold to take him out to play, we still have to accommadate his energy, so we throw his mesh ball down the stairs so he has to run down and then up them. It gets him tired quicker. :)

Okay, this is totally a picture from one of my first posts, but I thought I'd post it again.


And since I'm adding old pictures, I'll add these two of little Clyde. :)



Okay, that should make up for not having a camera. Hopefully next week I'll actually have some pictures to post. Have a great Thanksgiving!!! :)

Batteries Not Included...

Okay, so I put newly charged batteries in my camera this weekend, and then when I wanted to take a picture, my camera wouldn't turn on. So, our battery charger is dead, and we need to get a new one. I could go to the store and buy some regular batteries, but I'm kind of cheap.

But, last weekend was my birthday weekend (yep, here we have birthday weekends, not just a day. :) ) so we had big plans, but none of them really worked out. We did them this weekend though, but of course - a dead camera can't capture that...


So here's we we did do last weekend:

Last Friday, we decided it might be fun to go catch a high school football game at Bronco Stadium. Like I said, I'm cheap - high school games are $6, while a BSU game is, well, a lot more than that. I used to march in the Blue Thunder Marching Band at BSU, so the stadium isn't anything new to me, but we still thought it would be fun to go. We watched the first half of the Capital High School vs Boise High School game, but left at halftime (no marching band show... :( ) when the score was 42 - 0, with Capital winning. (I did hear that Boise made a touchdown, though. LOL) If the high school state championships end up being at the stadium (I guess it depends who is playing) we are going to try to go to that game. It's pretty fun.


Hehe, I have my high school colored blanket at another schools game. :) (They do play against each other...)

See? We were there. :)



On Saturday we had Pug-O-Ween, which I already posted about, and then that night we went to The Farmstead, which is a Corn Maze in Meridian. 

 A big chair...

 They had this bouncy thing, and I think it's for kids, but we went on it anyway.

We cut through this one part and got totally lost - it was great. :)

Sunday was my birthday. It rained all day and we couldn't race the go karts at Wahooz, so we got a rain check for my free birthday pass and went this past weekend. Also, I had a free movie ticket, but we missed all the decent times, so we went and saw Megamind this weekend. I liked it, and recommend it. 

Like I've said before, I've been a little obsessed with wedding planning, we don't even have a venue yet! We are looking at April 16th as the date, but we are on a tight budget, so it's hard to find a decent venue. I've got a few in mind, and once we sign a contract, all the other ideas in my head will hopefully come together. I can't wait! :) :) :)

Pug-O-Ween




Pug-O-Ween was on Saturday 10/30, and we love going every year. It's the most attended pug meet of the whole year and it's so fun to see all the dogs in costumes!

This year Maggie was a hot dog, Clyde was ketchup and Brodie was mustard. :) Brodie was too busy running around to really get a picture of him, so he's not in our picture under the sign. (or really any...)


Brodie's mustard costume looked just like Clyde's ketchup one, except it was yellow and said mustard on it.

Olive came with her family so we had a little family reunion and took some pictures with Royce, Maggie, Clyde and Olive. I hope Izzy's (Elsie) family can make it to a pug meet sometime.


Olive is a wild girl! She was so excited to be there and so crazy to hold, I loved it! Clyde was growling at her! I think he was a little overwhelmed at the amount of dogs at Pug-O-Ween and seeing them all in costumes made him nervous, but it was kind of funny he was growling, it was almost like he remembered that he was the runt and got picked on, lol!


She just wanted to give kisses!



Our friends that have a Pug and Boston Terrier also dressed thier Boston Terrier up as a Pug. :)



This guy is the best Boston Terrier around! He's so cute and well behaved!

I tried to get a picture of Maggie, Brodie and Clyde all together in the back of the car, but this is all I could get.





Pug-O-Ween was fun this year, and I'm already looking forward to next year!

Whoo Hoo!


We got a new car!!! It's a 2011 Scion xB. We've been saving for a new car for a year and a half and were finally able to get it last week. We were either going to get a Mazda3, Mazda CX-7 or a Scion xB, but when I test drove the Mazda3, my back started to hurt, and with my scoliosis, that's an important thing. We thought about the Mazda CX-7, and we test drove it and really liked it, but there were a few things we couldn't figure out with reviews and things (it wasn't Consumer Reports recommended, but then they changed the motor to one that was recommended, but we couldn't find an updated review).

We looked at maybe getting a Toyota Camry, but I'll tell you, I have never felt so cramped in a car. I couldn't believe how small the inside of the Camry was. We sat inside of a Corolla, and it was a little better, but then we sat in the Scion and it's so roomy inside! With 3 dogs, it's exactly what we need!


Clyde likes it. :) Okay, well he doesn't like having to sit in the back, but he'll get used to it.

We went to Walmart the other day and saw a rainbow, so I had to take a picture of my car with the rainbow behind it. :)
