uh oh......... fleas

toby had fleas... again... he hates baths.
and he shared the fleas with bailey...
she heard the water running...
oh no!
she is a lamb.
toby was a sad little wet fluff.
wet bailey.
toby says, "i'm sorry bailey..."
time for the blow dryer!
now the pups are flea free!! and happy to be dry!

now the cold front is blowing in and it's getting chilly outside!
can't wait for lunchtime!!


lindsey heather and toby have a sunset photoshoot

so today heather and i decided to take a sunset golf cart ride.
we let toby chase us for a little while. he got tired.
heather rescued tobes from exhaustion.
heath tried to give toby some love... but he rejected.
aw heather is so pretty!
there is the toby love she was hoping for!
it was way windy!
tobes enjoyed the photo shoot.
and the wind.
this is me getting the camera set up for the timer shots.
this is the first timer shot and the surprise "heather jump on lindsey" shot.
group shot!
me and my little puppy!
then toby spotted some deer! he didn't hesitate... the chase was on.
heather just continued being adorable.
jumping photos go!
i told her she looked like matisyahu in this one.
i am a bad jumper. this is the highest i have ever gotten.
hey heath.
hey lins.
lindsey and toby!
the sun was almost gone at this point.
look at the pretty blue sky peaking through the clouds! it was warm today, but tomorrow it shall be cold....
more timer photos! hugs and group shot.
in closing, i took toby on a shoulder ride and he loved it.
hope everyone is having a lovely and relaxing thanksgiving holiday also!
i prepared my lemon cheesecake tonight, hope it turns out well. i'll let you know tomorrow!


your j of my c

so as most of you know, i have an insanely adorable cousin named kristen and she and her best friend have a blog about their lives and their crafty creations. one of kristen's newest creations is her circle scarves. she rocked her first one to acl this year:

we kind of made fun of her because it was like 100 degrees and we stood in the sun all day, but once we looked at the pictures everyone was instantly jealous of the cuteness.

so i mentioned to kristen that i wanted a scarf so i could wear it to england this december and she did not disappoint! i told her i wanted two different shades of blue, so she did a light blue and a navy and then added a little square of yellow! i love it love it love it and the only thing i love more than my circle scarf is kristen!
heather did a photo shoot of me and the scarf so i could share it with all of you.
unfortunately texas has absolutely insane weather and it is still mega hot here. that is why i am wearing a tank top in the photo...
are you j of my c scarf?
go buy one! you can find them at her lullaby lubbock etsy shop!!

kristen, i love you and your family so much. you have a beautiful style and creativity and i cannot thank you enough for sharing your circular talents with me!


a surprise goodbye luau in austin

saturday night i was really feeling jet lag. i passed out at about 4:00 pm and was drooling on myself in no time. andrew tried to wake me up around 7:00 and i resisted. he said "i told johnny that we would come over at 8:00 so we should head over there." i said "my body thinks it's 2:00 am so i'm going to keep sleeping." he kept insisting that i wake up and eventually i agreed. i deliriously rode over to johnny and dillon's house and loopily walked up to the door. as soon as andrew opened the door- everyone burst out of hiding and screamed surprise!!!

it was a surprise luau going away party for andrew and i!!!
and all our friends were there to celebrate!
jon and haley and johnny and dillon planned and hosted. haley told me she felt challenged by planning a party for a party planner. i was glad to know i was referred to as a good party planner! i was even happier to know how loved we are. the boys fixed us some amazing hawaiian food complete with pineapple.
sean sampled a four loco.
and i sampled food.
dave and chris came! chris was looking very handsome in his mustache. and they were both looking handsome in their freshly purchased goodwill sweaters.
hey dave!
my adorable hostess!
johnny's amazing mother supplied us with decor! the pineapple was right in the the middle of the room and it looked amazing!
james and grant came by and were looking great as usual!
hey dillon, how is your dinner?
me and andrew- so so so happy we have friends that love us as much as we love them.
hey ben! so glad you came!
whats that dave? you got your sweater at goodwill? yeah- legit paint.
there was a fire.
jon did american gothic solo style.
so glad yall came by!
oh hey munkee. do you want the ball??
got it.
solo k2.
solo chris.
johnny and his little leila- both wearing leis!!
mr dilophosaurus got a lei too.
me and the kevins (k1 and k2)
chris, don't let people hate on your sweater.
hey lindsey, how do you like four loco? that is how i like it.
obviously dillon has a different opinion.
hey andrew! glad to see your still awake!
johnny, shall we initiate a dance party?
why do i have this ridiculous mustache?!
johnny had two hawaiian shirts. this is his.
and i'm wearing the second. since it was a surprise, i did not arrive in hawaiian shirt.
craig jumped into dance party, but from a safe distance.
and the boys hands went up and then they stayed there.
more lone star!
dance party go.
kitchen dance party.
who is that guy with dave!?!
its andrew.
giant rum bottle pass.
me and my andrew getting our dance on.
such fun!
but it didn't last.... johnny didn't let andrew's sleep stop him from posing for a photo.
then he added a thought bubble so we could all see what andrew was dreaming of.
i danced my hawaiian shirt off then paused for a sleeping andrew photo.
wake up andrew!!
we at least moved him to a different chair, but he was quickly back in a dream.
to all my austin loves:
you are the greatest friends i could ever ask for. i love each of you from the bottom of my heart and i can't wait for yall to visit us in hawaii! a million hugs and kisses.
xoxo (times one million)
