True sign of a DIY blogger?

Aug 21st, 2012

My adorable shih tzu Sugar {aka Shoogs} has turquoise paint on her paw. Poor thing can’t escape the painting chaos around here these days. Sugar Isn’t she cute!??!

P.S. I had to giggle a bit at Dan’s cute attempt to wish me a Happy Birthday yesterday by hijacking All Things Thrifty for 30 seconds. What a nice thing for a husband to do! But, he didn’t make it clear what he was doing, and I hope people weren’t confused by the crazy picture of me holding the sign “Beware of Wife.” Ha ha.

Saturday we went to Vegas for a shopping day, and we made it to Hobby Lobby where the sign came from. I held it up because I am THAT crazy wife that probably drives her husband crazy at times. Soooooo, don’t be confused. It was only a cute husband trying to tell his wifey Happy Birthday. We had a lot of fun spending time doing nothing {the best present I could ask for!} I am now 31 years old. I have to admit, turning 31 was a whole heck of a lot easier than turning 30 last year!

Was turning 30 as hard for you as it was me?


  1. Signs this reader is a craft blogger, I found myself concerned about whatever project might just have a puppy arm print in it! Lol. I hope your birthday was awesome. I turn 30 next March. I plan on ignoring it completely!

  2. Nah, 30's not so bad. Turning 50 was a bit concerning though.

  3. Turning 40 was the tough one for me!

  4. That's so cute. My pup gets drafted into my wild ideas and projects. I would love to have you link up your pup on Monday for our Puppy Love Photo Party. I just love to see new pixs of our fur babies. I always have a giveaway for one partyier too. Anyway … would love to have you join us…it's a once a month picture pup post link up.

  5. I thought 29 was way worse than 30. 30 was easy for me, but maybe because for the most part I still say that I am 29!

  6. Awe! What a sweet husband! Hope you had a great birthday – and 30 didn't bother me so much, but 35 did! But then the next age to bother me was 53.. next year 54 will bother me too.. lol

  7. We are blogging sisters forever now. I too have a shih-Tzu who has paint on his paws, more often than not! it's a sign of love…right?

  8. I turned 30 this year but SHHH!!! you have to keep that a secret!!! It didn't bother me as bad as I have seen it bother others. First of all my year of birth is not posted on my fb or any other site ;), second when anyone asks me how old I am I without hesitation say 21, I've even got my kids where they will say 21 if anyone asks them they still giggle a little when saying it. I did not have a birthday party or do anything, our current financial situation was very similar then too so that helped out a good bit because we didn't have the money for anyone to make a big deal out of it. I made jokes about it & still do, there are many people who still to this day have no clue exactly how old I am. & I plan to keep it that way :)
