Some Things

These are just some odds and ends that I have been meaning to blog about.
First, I won a giveaway from Forever and a Day. Selissa makes awesome custom crochet items. This is what we won and we love them. Thanks, Selissa!

Garage sale season is upon us! I've been wanting the Frog Pod from Boon, but did not want to spend $25-30 on a bath toy holder. I found it at a garage sale for $1! I also found a Pampered Chef bamboo knife block for my knives, brand new. Wahoo! But that was not a $1. :(
Here is the frog pod sitting pretty in our shower. Btw, Scott replaced the shower surround on a whim. The old one was a nasty yellowed beast and we've hated it ever since we first saw the house.

I thought this was kinda funny. Our dog ripped our front door screen...again...and I found a tennis ball stuck between the screen and the door. I'm not for sure if it was Nova or Pixie, but oddly enough, my bet is on the dog. She's done stuff like this before!
 Speaking of dogs, Perrin is becoming mostly an outside dog. I bring him in at night and sometimes during the day to eat or if it's hot out. We bought a shock collar for him. I didn't want to at first, but I was so sick of him barking at our poor neighbors. It was to the point of trying a shock collar or getting rid of him. It was worked wonderfully! I think he's only been shocked mildly once and now stops if he hears the beep. It beeps first until they keep barking. Nova was setting it off when they played though, so I had to put it on her so she'd know what the beep meant. Perfect opportunity was when the Parents as Teachers lady came this morning. Nova doesn't bark when she's outside normally, but we have to put her on a chain if we don't want her to dig out. This makes her bark at us to let her off of it and if there is someone visiting, it is worse. So, I put it on her. I heard her bark, keep barking, then squeal. She then would freak out and scream every time she just heard the beep. She is such a pansy inside dog. She screamed when the other dog just touched her. I guess she's not a good candidate for it, but I am glad she knows what the beep means now! I kinda feel bad for doing that to her...kinda. Here is Perrin lounging on our hammock in the back yard. He loves it out there.

The weather has been so nice that we've been going to the park a lot. Pixie has gotten pretty brave on the medium sized slides. Here are some pictures of our first visit with daddy of the season.

And lastly, Pixie loves wearing hats. I find her like this at random times throughout the day.
