Going home today!! :)  
I hesitate to write this entry because the last time I did an "I wish I could stay in LA longer" entry... well, I did! ;P I'm looking forward to going home, though because I really miss Mark & my little fuzzy dog! :( My flight leaves LAX at 3pm... I CANNOT miss it! ;P

Yesterday I spent the entire day rushing around buying omiyage (souvenirs) for my family and friends. :) Went to Trader Joe's and nearly bought the store out ;) - I got specific instructions from my co-workers, Mark, and my Mom on what they all wanted from there. ;) I usually bring an extra bag with me, just to carry home TJ stuff when I travel. ;) Really wish we had one in Hawaii. :(

Went to Petco and PetsMart to buy puppy omiyage for Sydney and Susan's dog, Toby. :) While I was browsing around in the store, I saw the strangest thing... there were Star Wars doggie costumes! :O I actually had to take a picture of it because I know you all won't believe me unless you saw it. ;)

Isn't this hysterical... and disturbing at the same time? ;)

Went to Boston Market and ate away my diet. :( That's another thing I wish we had in Hawaii... :( We have the Boston Market frozen entrees in our local market, but they're just not the same! :P All in all it was a pretty relaxing day, but I am SO ready to come home!!

It was such a lovely trip and so nice to see so many people: Linda :), Carrie, Laura, and Roger :), Daniel and his family, and Steven. My only regret is not getting to see Doug and Lily... :( Well, I'm off to pack up all of my stuff and catch up with all of your entries! Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday!! :) *HUGS*

Haha!! Sydney would kill me if I ever dressed her in that! ;) It was just so strange and amusing to see! :D

What is omiyage? Just had to ask.

Travel gifts (souvenirs) that people in Hawaii buy for everyone they know when they travel... it's such a tradition here. :) It's mostly turned into food items we can't get in Hawaii, though. :D

That is the CUTEST thing I have EVER seen!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on June 20th, 2006 05:35 pm (UTC)
It is cute and so funny! I have to show the photo to Mark - he's a HUGE Star Wars fan and I know he'd like it. :D There was also a Darth Vader costume as well. :) Sydney would NEVER let me dress her in that, though! :D

Funniest. Thing. Ever. Ruby and Zoe would never, ever tolerate it, but I'm really tempted to look for one. did they have a Princess Leia?
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on June 21st, 2006 09:34 am (UTC)
I think they did have a Princess Leia costume though I can't quite be sure. I know I saw a Darth Vader one. :) I should've taken more pictures. :P

I want to comment on the various things you said, but the costume takes the cakiest of cake. I'm going to have it stuck in my head for the rest of the day.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on June 21st, 2006 09:34 am (UTC)
Haha!! I'm sorry!! Poor you to have that image stuck in your head! ;)

My poor wife! Now she gets to hear all my Yoda impressions!

It is pretty neat - showed the photo to my hubby (who LOVES Star Wars) and he thought it was hysterical! And thanks so much, Angela - my trip was really wonderful!! :)

Sounds like that you still had a busy time. And I don't think that Micki would like it but this costume looks funny. :) Have a safe flight back home, Sheri! Big *hugs* to you. :)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on June 21st, 2006 09:37 am (UTC)
Sydney would not like it either! I can't even put an bandana around her neck without her taking it off! ;P *HUGS* to you, Sabine!!

That costume is too funny! LOL :P I couldn't even imagine any dog really wanting to wear that lol.

I hope you have a nice flight home. :) It was nice seeing you! *hugs*
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on June 21st, 2006 09:39 am (UTC)
I had to take a picture of it because I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it! :D Sydney would never forgive me if I dressed her up in a costume like that! ;)

Thanks, Carrie - I actually did have a really nice flight!! Hope we can see each other again soon!! *HUGS*
Deb: sunnysb186 on June 21st, 2006 01:30 am (UTC)
Hee hee! Can you imagine Sydney or Sunny in that costume with all of their fur sticking out! :) Makes me giggle just to think of it.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on June 21st, 2006 09:42 am (UTC)
:D That would be hysterical!! :D Almost makes me want to... no, I wouldn't put poor Sydney through that. ;)

Big *HUGS* Deb, I've missed you around here!! :(
Debsb186 on June 22nd, 2006 12:36 am (UTC)
Mike gave me a reindeer costume for Sunny a few years ago for Christmas. It *was* hysterical. She looked like a fuzzy little sausage... I'll see if I can find a photo of it. She was so disgusted with me. hee hee :)

Thanks sweetie! Been busy - I'm such a horrible writer, but I love keeping up on your busy busy life! :)
Debsb186 on June 22nd, 2006 01:08 am (UTC)
Found them! hee hee

Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on June 22nd, 2006 08:01 am (UTC)
OH MY GOSH, those are the CUTEST pictures I have ever seen!! :D :D Sunny is SO cute with that reindeer costume on!! She does look a little upset in the first picture, which makes it all the more adorable!! Thanks so much for sharing these, I LOVED them!! :D
Debsb186 on June 22nd, 2006 01:38 pm (UTC)
Hee hee. I swear that dog deserves a medal for putting up with me some days! :) Glad you got a kick out of them.

I'm so sorry that I haven't been responding to your other entries, but I'm sooo glad you had such a wonderful trip! I've been reading all about it. :)

That dog costume is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen! LOL!

Safe trip home! :)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on June 21st, 2006 09:44 am (UTC)
Isn't it just hysterical? Sydney would hate me forever if I put her in a costume like that! ;)
karen: lestat caroleewakedistracted on June 22nd, 2006 03:32 am (UTC)
Oh, same with Sarah! She didn't even like it when we put a doggie bandana on her when she was younger. :)
the36thchamber on June 21st, 2006 05:38 am (UTC)
It's all good hun, we'll see each other one of these times ;) and that costume is totally funny but who would stick their dog in something like that...lol
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on June 21st, 2006 09:46 am (UTC)
Isn't it hysterical? It's funny that the dog in the picture looks so happy... Sydney would hate me if I put her in a costume like that! ;)
