10 Things...

A friend of mine, Beth, just made a post about 10 interesting things you may not know about her. I thought it was a good idea, and decided to do the same...

1. I do not drink sweet tea. At. All. Yes, I know I'm from the south, but I don't like it. Neither does my brother...we figure it's because we never drank it as a child, so we never developed the taste for it. So, it tickles me when people will say, "Oh, (insert name of restaurant) has the BEST sweet tea." I can't imagine any being any better than another.

2. Dislike tomatoes...almost as much as sweet tea. What's strange about this is I LOVE salsa, Mexican food, Italian food, etc...I think it's a texture issue.

3. No, my mom didn't go to Mercer and my dad didn't go to Duke. If I had a dollar for every time someone asked that, or even a dollar for each time someone thought they were the first person to point that out to me, I'd be Bill Gates rich. Seriously. My first name, Mercer, is my dad's middle name, and was his dad's middle name. I like it.

4. I am way more addicted to my blackberry that I want to be. My husband keeps telling me to get a new phone, but I just figured this one out, and I like it. A lot.

5. I collect cookbooks. I'll get on a kick where I'll cook from the same one for a few weeks, and will then shelf it, and grab another. I read them from cover to cover over and over again. Pretty sure this is something I picked up from my mom.

6. I'm pretty emotional. If I don't cry at a movie, then I probably didn't like it...that's how I rate movies...

7. The DVR and I are pretty good friends...I almost wish it wasn't invented, then I wouldn't be so hooked.

8. I am obsessed with celebrity gossip. When I get online in the morning, I immediately check out and

9. I knew within a month of dating Mike I would marry him...I didn't think it would take 7 years to do so, but I stuck it out. It was worth it. :) Even though his mom tells me I let him drag it out too long.

10. And you probably know this...I am becoming the crazy dog person I didn't want to be. Tucker is the center of mine and Mike's world, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Frosty Paws

We didn't want Tucker to not get to take part in my birthday festivities, so we introduced him to Frosty Paws... I have known about Frosty Paws for years, as my aunt's dog, Dusty, got them every night for fact, if you forgot to give them to him, he would bark at the the way Tucker enjoyed his first sampling of Frosty Paws, I am sure he'll love them just like Dusty!

I didn't want to upset his tummy, so I only gave him a little I put the cup on the coffee table to grab the camera and he got the cup off and ran to his bed with it...obviously, he got caught!

On another happy note...he is 3 for 3 today in "pottying outside!" Good boy!

29 and holding...

I was out of town this past weekend for work, but came back for a quick visit Saturday night to celebrate my birthday with started off at El Vaquero and ended up at Viva El Toro...can you tell we like margaritas?

At El V, we noticed a group of Irish folks singing at their table and thought it would be a great idea for them to sing Happy Birthday! Not only did they sing, but one guy also did the Irish Jig.

We like to go to Viva El Toro as we have a good friend who loves karaoke...well, she wasn't the only one that took the stage that night!

I had a great 29th birthday and can't wait until 30!
