Missing Something?

What does this sweet dog have in common with this guy?

He is now missing the same tooth!

We came home today to find that Ender had gotten a little too rough with one of his bones and his tooth fell out! This isn't a baby tooth either. He is 4 years old so it looks like he is going to have to live with this for the rest of his life.

We called the vet and left them a message to let them know what happened and to make sure there isn't anything we need to do about this. He doesn't seem to be in any pain so I am guessing they will tell us to just let it be.

Ender loves his bones, but it looks like we are going to be more careful about what we give him unless we want to have to get him some doggie dentures in the future!

Burn Baby Burn

I had an unfortunate run in with my Bombshell this morning.

In the few months that I have been using this curling iron I have never had an incident until today! I have no idea how hot the curling iron really gets but it felt like 5000 degrees when it touched my neck this morning.

The bright side of this burn is that while it looks horrible, it doesn't look like a hickey so I can still wear my hair up while I work out without people thinking I am a hoochie and I still have great waves.

I don't have aloe or neosporin at work so I have been rubbing Carmex on it. Haha, hope that helps!

Pain is beauty...

The Perfect Pair

This afternoon Tori's bridesmaids got together to throw her a Bridal Shower.

Bride's Mom, Bride, Groom's Mom

We used The Perfect Pair as the theme (found on The Hostess With the Mostess) and it turned out adorable.

Tori and her fiancee Daniel like coffee and teas so this was the perfect theme.

I made a sign to go behind behind the coffee and tea station that said "Coffee &Tea, Cream & Sugar, Him & Her" (all perfect pairs) and we had 2 different flavors of tea and two flavors of coffee for the guests to try. We also had some cute purple sugar to sweeten things up and cucumber water, lime water and mimosas to drink.

See that cute wooden pear between the water containers? It says The O'Neal Family Est. 2011 and it was made by Erin. It was sooo adorable!

For the food, we had sandwiches, mini quiches, pasta salad, fruit kabobs, cheese & crackers, cookies and a beautiful (and delicious) cake made by Erin.

Tori and the Master Baker
We had the shower and a dentist office that one of the bridesmaids works at. Sounds weird but it was actually perfect and the prettiest dentist office I had ever been to! They had beautiful furniture and flower arrangements so we really didn't have to do any decorating.

The beautiful bride
It was so nice to get to catch up with the bride to be and all the bridesmaids! Just 2 more months until the big day. Can't wait!!!

Weekend Recap

Three day weekends are the best. That extra day just totally rejuvenates me!

I started out the weekend Saturday morning with a Pure Barre class. Then, Danny and I headed out to the Farmer's Market. I didn't take any pictures but we got some great stuff! Two plants, strawberries, peaches, tomatoes, cilantro, and onions. Everything we got tasted so delicious! I think we will be frequenting the Farmer's Market a lot this summer.

Saturday night we headed out to have dinner at Bolsa with Kiki and Adam. We took advantage of the mixologist they have working there and had an Italian Affair, Blackberry Fizz and a Skinny Margarita. All delicious. The food also did not disappoint. Unfortunately, half way through dinner I somehow broke my sandal. I have always had a strange fear of my shoes breaking while I am in public and that night it happened. Luckily, it wasn't too noticeable!

Sunday morning we woke up bright and early and headed out to the Byron Nelson. It was HOT!!! After a few hours walking around following some golfers we were able to get into an air conditioned tent where we ate and drank for the rest of the day! That is the way to watch a golf tournament.

Monday morning we slept in, lounged around the house and just relaxed. Then we headed out to see the Hangover 2. Not as good as the first one and some parts were disturbing, but Bradley Cooper is a hottie so I didn't mind staring at him for a couple of hours.

After the movie we headed to a taco place on Henderson to have dinner. I am always trying to find tacos like the kind I get back home and I thought this place may be it. Ignore the bars on the windows, it was totally safe!

I had 4 tacos and Danny had a Gordita. The tacos were ok but definitely not as good as the ones I get in Brownsville. The Gordita on the other hand was soooo yummy! There was a different taco place next door to the one we ate at that is on my list for the future! Poor Danny has to eat Mexican food all the time!

All in all it was a great three day weekend!
