Snippets of July

I’ve had friends stay with us for the last five days.  We’ve had a great time and they went home today.  I uploaded my photos from three cameras tonight and added 424 photos to my July photos taken.  Wow!  I could be overwhelmed, but I’ll just take it one step at a time and blog what I can. Here’s a hint of who came to visit.
Below is a summary of little snippets of life in July.

We got some used vertical filing cabinets from the used office furniture store.  Very excited to have these to get our home office organized!

I set a goal for myself to run at least one mile every single day in July.  So far I’ve done it for 23 days straight and have run 37 miles already.  I also got 18 friends to do it too and set up a group on Facebook to encourage each other on our progress.

Noodle is still so very cute and funny.

Noodle celebrated his 2nd birthday on July 14th.  He got to lick some Cheetos, his favorite!


On July 11th, Todd got the NCAA Football 2013 game.  This is his favorite game and he has gotten the annual edition of the game since the 1990’s.

Todd and I celebrated National Ice Cream Day (7/15) a day early by going out for ice cream at Baskin Robbins.


On Sunday 7/15 Todd performed some “surgery” on my new Alienware computer by putting in my hard drive from my previous computer.  I’ve been fully migrated onto my new computer since then, and I love it. 

I spent earlier last week (before I took a few days off work to show our guests around town) at work totally cleaning out and organizing my cube at work.  I had piles of papers on my desk, some were very old.

But afterwards I love my desk, it’s like I have a new cube.

Last but not least, we went to Slater’s 50/50 for the first time with our friends Cassi & Dan and their daughter Madison.  I had the 50/50 Burger, which is made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef! 

And we shared some sides.

Had so much fun with Cassi & Dan!  And that 50/50 burger was something else.



  1. so I have concluded that I NEED to visit 50/50 one of these days, thank you my dear friend!!!

  2. haha licking cheetos! in my cats dreams! hey, it's a good excuse to buy cheetos! i love it.

  3. Yep - 50/50 sounds amazing!!!
    I bet you and Peppermint have had an awesome time!!!!
    Woot on the running! I haven't run every day, but it's helped keep me in check with keeping up my miles! :)

  4. love the tapatio on your desk :) and what is that green can on your before desk picture and at Slaters???

  5. @Cam - it's tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning. We bring it with us everywhere if there's going to be french fry eating.

  6. I must try that burger sometime. Eyeing a trip out your direction for CHA in January.

    How funny that you bring your fry seasoning! When I was pregnant I kept a bottle of hot sauce in my purse.

  7. That last picture of you two is pretty great...not to toot my own horn or anything. :) We loved seeing you and eating bacon!

  8. Yes that 50/50 burger looks awesome!

    I'm sure Peppermint had a great time visiting and San Diego. July looks very busy for you guys.

  9. The Cheeto licking is cracking me up.
