Togo's arm

We went to the vet for the bi-weekly bandage change/x-ray/antibiotics/100$ visit on Monday. We kinda got a little bit of bad news. Togo's arm just isn't healing. The vet said that it wasn't super uncommon in dogs, but the cast would have to stay on for another 2 months! When we went to the vet the first time, he said it would be on for 6 weeks at the longest, and now we're looking at 3 1/2 months! Not exactly the news we were looking for, but the doctor did say that it would heal and he would be fine. Ah! ANother 2 months...

My Birthday

So, this is my first blog entry ever! Pretty exciting...anyways, I never had a chance to write about my birthday, so here goes...I had my birthday a couple weeks back and had a great one. Rachel came to work and picked me up at lunch time and took me to Market Street (our favorite) and we both got halibut oscar. She surprised me at lunch with a new digital camcorder! I was stoked! We never got to go to dinner that night because I had school, so we postponed the dinner for a time when we could go out together. Last weekend we went to Tucanos for dinner and Rachel told the waitress that it was my birthday and she wanted the staff to sing to me and bring the drums, and tamborines and everything, (Probably just to embarass me.) After we were done eating, Rachel had to leave to go wash her hands, and while she was gone, the entire mariachi band showed up to sing and dance. I had to stop them and tell them that Rachel would be mad if she wasn't here for it, so I sent them away and told them to come back in 10 minutes. They kinda gave me dirty looks, but oh well, we got a few pictures and everything turned out alright. Overall, it was a pretty good birthday.

It seems like we've had a lot going on lately. So here's what we've been doing and some pictures to add to the fun. We had a birthday party for Togo.... Yes, I said a birthday party for our dog. Codee thinks I'm crazy and I'm sure the rest of the world does too but hey it's what I wanted to do. Togo is seriously like our child and we'd do anything for him. Anyways, he loves alligators! He has 2 alligator toys and they are his favorites. So I found a way cool alligator cupcake cake on the internet and copied it. (If anything, this party was just an excuse to have a way cool cupcake.) My sister helped me decorate it cause she's a decorating fool at Mrs. Fields. It was kind of informal, I wished I would've had some of our friends dogs come over for the festivities. (Razor, Mika, Chica, Kaya, Duke and Kourt) But my sister brought her dog and both my grandma's brought there dogs. The dogs had Milk Bones dipped in white chocolate and party hats. It was a pretty good time.

This past weekend we went to Bendover... oops... I mean Wendover. I won concert tickets to Deirks Bently and Phil Vassar on the radio. So we went out for a little weekend getaway. It was so nice to get out of Salt Lake and do something different. We both know Wendover is TRASH but it was entertaining to watch the trashy people. My family (Grandma, Aunt, Uncle, other Aunt and Uncle and cousin) came out on Saturday to go to Phil Vassar with us. And Codee's family (Mom, Dad, Sister, Sister's fiance, Brother, Brother's fiance) came out too to celebrate his sisters birthday. So the families got to meet over dinner and we went gambling/dancing later. Overall we had a good time...

Monday, Codee's mom had surgery so we went up to Logan to be with her. Everything went well and she'll be back to work in a couple weeks. We love you Kitt!

Paint Away!

So I've been wanting to paint my room for a while and I finally did it. Well I didn't do it... Codee and my Dad did all the work, I just brought them drinks when they needed it. I wanted to paint all 4 walls grey but then I thought it might make it too dark so I just did 2 walls. And the color I picked isn't just grey, its got some green tones in it. It's actually called squirrel and it looks fabulous on my walls.
