I'm home today, not because I am sick but because she is sick.

 We crate her at night and she usually does very well.  Every once in awhile I hear a little whine but this morning I heard some very audible whines. 

It was before 6, I jump out of bed and can smell poop as soon as I open the bedroom door.  I lift up the blanket and there is my little princess with diarrhea e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.  I rush her outside and once we come back inside I start the clean-up.  Oh my lord.

I was dry heaving all over the bathroom. Ick. Ick. Ick.  Emma then proceeded to vomit on the floor and of course we are out of paper towels. 

I took the day off.  With a morning like that, I can't imagine what the day would bring.  I also want to make sure Emma is okay and isn't really sick.  I think she ate something funny.  She is now sleeping on the couch with her little feets in the air.  Ahhhhh, dogs.

In my relationship, I am not the cook.  I've never really enjoyed cooking.  The prep time, the mess, and frankly, my food usually doesn't turn out that great.  Since going vegan it's gone downhill.  Matt is an excellent cook and I always feel like my food would be compared to his and there is no comparison.

Matt has had a case of the grumbles lately about me not cooking.  We both work full time so cooking doesn't fall on either party as their responsibility. But, I've decided in the interest of being a good girlfriend, I will cook once a week.  It may not be pretty, it may not be good but at least I will have tried.

I may "chicken" sandwiches on Sunday, you can't really mess those up, and I felt proud of myself.  Vegan cooking is no easy task and Matt makes it look so easy-and good.

My employers are season ticket holders for the Red Sox.  They have tickets for every single home game and usually give them away to clients, brokers, and so on.  I was chatting with Matt last week trying to figure out if they ever let their paralegals go to the game.  Much to my surprise, on Tuesday afternoon, my boss comes over and kind of whispers, "Would you like to go to the game tonight"?.

Tuesday night was the night Matt had to work until 10:30 pm.  Of course!  I called him in a hurry to see if he could get out early, fake sick, quit, whatever.  You don't pass up these seats. 

He managed to weasel out of work and we enoyed the game, sitting 6 rows back from the dirt.  I've been to numerous games but something about sitting so close made the game that much better.  You could hear the crack of the bat and not even see the ball flying because it happened so fast.

Even though we lost by 1 run, the game was still awesome.

With my design inspiration came a new addiction.  I had heard rumblings around of this thing called Pinterest but never checked it out.

I have now checked it out and IT'S AMAZING. It's pretty thing after pretty thing with a whole lot of inspiration.  I already need a bigger apartment to fit all the DIY stuff I want to do. And now I need a baby and a wedding so I can start getting my creativity out!  Baby shouldn't happen for a few more years but that wedding could come anytime now.  (As Matt is rolling his eyes)

Kate and I took our boys to go see Bridesmaids last night.  We laughed so much when we saw it we knew we had to take them. 

I think I laughed harder the second time.  Definitely buying that movie when it comes out.

When I got home though it just so happened that my friend asked me to be her bridesmaid! She got engaged about a month ago and I've been wondering if she was going to ask me, I won't lie.  We have been friends since 7th grade.

She is getting married in Montana next August and since she lives in Las Vegas, her shower and bachelorette party will probably be there.  I'm going to start saving my pennies.  I want to take Matt to Montana so he can see where I grew up, not to mention the fact it is absolutely gorgeous.  This will give us a good excuse.

I'm getting the design bug again after picking up Adrian's big boy bed.  We wanted this bed frame for him but IKEA discontinued it and now only makes it in white.  It was justmy luck though that I went on Craigslist and found it there! 

Picked it up last night, love it! He doesn't know we bought him one so I hope he likes his surprise.  We are going to take him to pick out his special sheets this weekend.  I'm going to do a plain red comforter because I hate hate hate the cartooney stuff.  I want to do navy blue horizontal striped curtains, a wall ledge to put his books in, and the 8 cube expedit bookcase from IKEA.  We bought a calendar that has vintage superhero prints that I want to hang in his room as well.  It's coming together, slowly but surely.

Puerto Rico was awesome.  I think that could be said for any vacation though.  I love exploring new places, taking pictures, and spending quality time with the boy.

*We explored Old San Juan with it's awesome architecture
*Had fun (sometimes not so fun) finding vegan food we could eat.  I must say, all the food we did eat was phenomenal.
*Took many naps
*Kayaked to a BioBay and watched the water turn a turquoise blue due to dinoflagylites
*Ordered room service and at dinner in our big fluffy bed

*Rented a car for the first time in a different country
*Swam in some really warm water, it was heavenly
*Played with extremely cute puppies in a local pet shop
*Hiked through the rainforest and swam by the waterfalls
*Missed Adrian and the puppy (who is currently having a crazy dream on the couch, legs flying all over the place)

Back to reality.  I do love my schedules though. Tomorrow we are hopefully picking up a big boy (!!) bed for Adrian.  He's 5 so it's about time, hah.

My last week has been spent in Puerto Rico.  Our flights home are tomorrow and while I'm sad my vacationing is ending, I miss my puppy so much I want to get home now.  Screw flying!  More posts with pictures to come after I sort through my stack of mail that's looming and return to "normal" life.
