So Much to Update!

I guess I'll go in order to make it easier...

Back on June 5th, I went to the Vigilantes football game.  This is a new arena football league that just started here in Dallas and I'm PUMPED to have ANY kind of football to watch!  (I sort of go into a mild depression when football season ends...haha)  I went with my parents and my adorable cousin Nick....

Nick and I cheering them on...


Then...around the 15th, Locksley had his 12 week vet appointment....12 WEEKS!  Can you believe my little man is growing up so fast?!  He got an A+ on his check-up!  He weighed 6.7 pounds and Lox is proud to announce that his "boys" have dropped...LOL!  He is becoming a man....haha



He is just about the sweetest thing in the world...but, he is also a FIRECRACKER!  He definitely has a mind of his own and can be quite stubborn at times.  He is incredibly smart and already knows several commands...He can "sit", "lay down" and when asked if he wants to go outside, he goes over and stares at his leash by the door!

Now...for those of you out there with dogs, I'm sure you know that having a super intelligent dog is both a blessing and a curse.  Yes, he is easily trainable and very perceptive...BUT, he can also use his smarts to be a little sneakster and get into trouble!  When I ask if he's hungry, he immediately goes to his food bowl and lets out a sweet little soft bark of anticipation....then, hurries over to the cabinet where his food is kept.  Of course, having this knowledge of where his food is stored also leads him to wander over there during "non-feeding" times and scratch on the cabinet door...haha.  Thankfully, he hasn't figured out to open it.....YET!

Here are a few more pics of my sweet baby just because.....



On the 16th, my momsie had Bunco at her house!  For those of you who don't have a clue what I'm talking about...Bunco is a dice game played by a group of 12 people (usually women..haha)  It's pretty much just an excuse to get together with your girlfriends once a month and drink wine, gossip, eat yummy food, win prizes and laugh!  I ended up winning a cool platter!

Living in Dallas (just a block from downtown) definitely has its' perks.  On the 18th, the Arts District had a Summer Block Party.  This involved all of the museums and concert halls....they had street performances and special exhibits at each venue.  It was a lot of fun!  My friend Matt went with me and we had a lot of laughs...

This was one of the street performances....was pretty darn cool....


The staircase at the Dallas Museum of Art...


One of the fun retro exhibits...


Me standing in front of another museum...


One Arts Plaza at nighttime....everything lights up and it's just beautiful...


On the 23rd, I went to the movies to see "Letters to Juliet"....What a sweet flick!!!  I really enjoyed it!  Then, afterwards, I stopped next door to Paciugo and got a little Mediterranean Sea Salt Caramel gelato!  I just thought it made sense to get gelato after watching a movie based in Italy....LOL!


This past Friday, my friend Kat and I went to The Doobie Brothers and Chicago concert!  IT ROCKED!  I am a HUGE Chicago fan and I also LOVE The Doobie Brothers!  We sat on the front row of the lawn and had a fantastic time!!!




While I was at the concert, my dear sweet friend (that also happens to live next door) puppy-sat for me and Locksley and her dog Achilles had a little playdate....Here are some pics from their fun night....




I think Lox wants to put a saddle on Achilles.....haha


Aww...sweet kisses...



This one, by far, is the funniest picture....I was CRACKING UP when I saw it!!! 
*Caption - DON'T DO DRUGS!*



Finally...last night, my mom and I went to a wedding.  The bride is the sister of my best guy friend.  I've known her since she was 5 years old!  She looked beautiful and the wedding was a lot of fun!  I'm very happy for her and the beginning of her new life with her hubby!

So...that about brings us to present day!  I'm about to head over to the 'rents for Sunday lunch (and, they use it as an excuse to see Locksley...hehe)

And, on that note...here are extraneous pictures of my baby...







Hope you all have a beautiful Sunday!  Take care!

Yay! I'm glad you posted! OMG he is SOOOO adorable. I might have to move up my 8 years old timeline for getting Sophia a Cavalier puppy <3

You had better keep those photos coming! He is so stinkin' cute!

I could just eat him with a spoon. I LOVE puppies and I'll bet he still has puppy breath. I love me some puppy breath!

I know weird about the puppy breath thing, but it is so sweet. Only the mommy of a puppy would understand.

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to read all about your excitement. I'm such a negligent bloggy friend.

The puppy is looking great. You are such a good mommy!
