I can't believe it's been a week since I've updated! :P  
First of all, I'm so sorry that I haven't been around much lately. Between work, getting ready for my next trip and working on Kevin's site (notice I don't mention sleep - because I haven't had too much of that lately) :P I haven't even had the time to check LJ. I've tried my best to catch up on all of your entries, but I really haven't been able to comment as much as I'm used to. :(

Some good news, though - Kevin's site re-design is finally done! I made my deadline this morning... just barely, since it was after 1:30am when I realized that all 70 something pages that I had uploaded had faulty links that needed to be fixed right away! :P So it took me another two hours to fix them on all the pages... :P The good news is that the re-design is finally done, I just have to decide whether I like it enough to keep it. :P

In other non-website news, this past weekend Mark, Sydney, and I went to the Pet Expo at the Blaisdell Center. :) There we met up with Susan, Toby, and Fredrick for an afternoon of clothes shopping (for Toby) and yummy treat shopping (for Sydney). We even got to meet two celebrity dogs - The yellow lab from "Lost" (I'm sorry but his name escapes me) and Alex, the Sheltie from our local Central Pacific Bank commercials. :) Poor Sydney started to feel a little inferior in Alex's company since Alex was so well groomed and VERY well trained (and because there was a long line of people just waiting to pet him). Well, Sydney may not be a "celebrity" and tons of people won't line up to pet her, but she'll always be the cutest fuzzy dog in my eyes. :)

Alex - the Central Pacific Bank mascot was very cute and VERY well trained, but I still think our Sydney is cuter (but I'm admittedly VERY biased! ;)

Here Susan and I are with our fuzzy babies. :) It was amazing that we could get a photo with everyone looking! :)

Sydney was so distracted by all the other dogs that it was amazing that I could even take this photo of her.

Hope you're all well, I'm off to catch up on all my neglected emails and try to get some sleep. Hope you have a nice evening. :)

Site looks gerat! My only quibble is that the entire splash graphic doesn't fit on my monitor, but I use a 832 x 624 resolution, so it's probably not a problem for anybody else. :-)

And dogs: How cuuuuuuute!

And the "Lost" lab is named Vincent on the show, but he's played by a female.

I was really thinking of making that graphic MUCH smaller. :) I'll have to work on that. :) Thanks for taking a look!

Vincent - that's right, I saw a photo in the paper yesterday of her (?). Such a beautiful dog! :)

for me I can see margins and the graphic fits about 85% of the screen! :S

How cute!!

I like the website as well! :)
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on May 12th, 2005 06:38 am (UTC)
All the dogs there were so adorable! I like to just go to the Expo to see all the different dogs. :)

Thanks for taking a look at the website, Smitha! I made the title graphic a wee bit smaller, but will probably try to work on it more when I get back from my trip. :)

I haven't been around LJ much either. Too much school work. Finals coming up. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!! :p Anyway...one thing on the site, it says 11.29.2005 on the update dates...is that a typo? Looks great though. :)

Very cute pictures of the doggies!!! :) It seems like you all had a great time.

Fixed the date. :) Thanks for noticing that. :) Good luck on all your finals.

A pet expo sounds like something I'd enjoy! :) Sydney is so sweet!

The Kevin site looks great, btw!
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on May 12th, 2005 06:41 am (UTC)
You'd love the Pet Expo, Karen! All the cute dogs there with so many booths selling everything imaginable for dogs, cats, birds,... all pets really. :) Sydney enjoyed sampling all the treats there. :)

Thanks for taking a look at the Kevin site. :) I'm still undecided on whether to change a few things around before I send Kevin to see it. :)

I LOVE the new Kevin site! It looks wonderful! And Sydney is so very adorable. I hope you can get some sleep before your trip. :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on May 12th, 2005 06:42 am (UTC)
Awwww, thanks so much Rachel! :) You're such a sweetie! :) Thanks for your sweet comments. And I did get a bit of sleep last night, but hopefully it means that I'll be able to sleep really well on the plane tomorrow night. :) *HUGS*

Glad to hear something from you. :) Kevin's site looks great to me - and I can very well see the links. :) It sounds like that you had a nice time at the Pet Expo. Thanks for sharing the photos, Sydney looks so cute and it's a wonderful photo of you four.

Hope you will find some rest before your trip.

*Hugs* to you
and *love and attention* to Sydney

Thanks Sabine! :) We had a great time at the Expo. I think Sydney had fun sampling all those dog treats there. :) It was really nice meeting Alex too - I've never met a celebrity dog before. ;)

And hopefully I'll be able to get some sleep on the plane tomorrow night. :) Thanks so much for your comment, Sabine. *HUGS* to you and to Micki too. :)

I'd line up to pet Syd.

How fun. Yeah things are busy busy busy.... Don't feel bad for not updating, I'm just happy when you do!
