I must be one of the only ones out there...  
...who didn't watch the superbowl this afternoon. :P Instead Mark & I opted to go shopping since we knew there would be no crowds (for once) in the mall and we were right! :) It was wonderful to find a great parking space and to NOT have to wait in long lines. :) Not being a football fan does have its advantages. ;)

Spent the rest of the day fussing around with my new digital camera that Mark got me. Poor Sydney knows that whenever we get a new camera/gadget she's our test subject.

I'm pretty happy with the quality of the photos that this camera takes and I can't wait to take it to NY and try it out there. Mark told me that I've become the poster child for Sony - since everything I own (digital camera, video camera, mini-disc recorder, etc.) are all Sony products. :P

I also spent some time mulling over a site that I decided to create in Dreamweaver... :P It's been so long since I've been in class and have created anything net-wise that I think I've gone brain dead when it comes to site building. :P Maybe it's just my old age. ;)

Yesterday Mark & I went to Cold Stone to get some ice cream (it's sort of become a birthday tradition for us). I made the mistake of NOT ordering the kiddie size and ended up taking more than half of mine home (the regular size is SO huge!) I was a bit disappointed when I couldn't finish it yesterday, but very happy that I had a nice dessert waiting in the freezer for me today. :)

And lastly, my friend Susan re-finalized her wedding date last week. It'll be on June 12th (it was originally supposed to be on March 6th). So at least I have a little bit of time to lose weight before the wedding (provided all this celebratory eating is done). :P

Hope you all had a nice weekend. :)

Awww! That is one of the cutest pictures ever. :-)

And I didn't watch the Superbowl! I stayed home and watched a few of the commercials. ;-)

Thanks, Leanna. :) Poor dog runs away every time she hears me turn on my digital camera now. ;)

And I guess if I had been at home the commercials are the only thing I would've watched it for... and possibly that half time boob thing. :P

Hmmm I love this pic btw you have a surprise waiting for you on my journal. I hope you and Mark like it.

Thanks so much, Mellodi! I just went there and saw it! I LOVE it! :) Thanks so much for making that for us! I've saved it in my memories, I hope that you don't mind, because I love it so much! :) Thanks again! You really made my morning! :) *HUGS*

That's my Sydney!! Pretty girl!

And, you still have to lose weight by my birthday. If I hafta, so do you. *ducks* *runs for cover*
Sherishutterbug93 on February 1st, 2004 09:24 pm (UTC)
Haha! :D I'd planned to lose weight by March 6th anyway - since it's probably when I'll need to be fitted for the dress. I only have 3 months to lose all the weight I gained since November. :P

Everytime you post that link to Cold Stone, I just start drooling. I wish we'd get one by us!!! I check "locations" every time you click the link to no avail!

That is hands down the cutest picture of Sydney that I've ever seen! Do you have the Sheltie Collector's Plate from Franklin Mint (or one of those places). I saw an advertisement for it in Family Circle this month and thought of you!
Sherishutterbug93 on February 1st, 2004 09:28 pm (UTC)
I hope you get one near you soon, it's a wonderful dessert place. :)

And thanks for the comments on Sydney's photo. She was looking at a toy that I had off to the side (which is the reason for the twinkle in her eye) ;) And I haven't seen that collector plate yet - I'll have to take a look for it - I always love Sheltie items. :)

Awww thanks Jodi! :) That's very sweet of you to say! :) Hope you're doing well. :)

Awww, what a cute picture! I didn't watch the Superbowl either. Instead went to COSTCO and found parking without any problems;) Just wasn't into it this year at all.
Sherishutterbug93 on February 1st, 2004 09:39 pm (UTC)
Isn't it wonderful to be out when everyone's at home? I don't necessarily hate football - but it's not one of my favorite sports. :P And thanks for the nice comments on Sydney's photo. :)
ajayne on February 1st, 2004 09:47 pm (UTC)
Awe, use that one as an icon!!! I love the picture of Sydney!!!

And nope, I didn't watch the Super Bowl... just the last few minutes waiting for Survivor to come on. And I wasn't even paying attention to it.
Sherishutterbug93 on February 1st, 2004 09:53 pm (UTC)
I should change my icon photo! :) I've had the one I've been using far too long. Thanks for the nice comments. :)

And yay! Another super bowl non-watcher! Listening to the neighbors yelling and screaming this afternoon, I thought I was one of the only ones not watching (and not really caring.) I think I'm like you, I'm more of a baseball fan. :)
ajayne on February 1st, 2004 09:55 pm (UTC)
And I am not even a die-hard baseball fan. We went shopping as well.

Sydney is smiling. :) She just looks great. I'm glad to hear that you are happy with your new camera. Hopeful, looking forward to see perhaps more photos. ;) I hope you will have a good start into next week. *Hugs* to you and *love and attention* to Sydney.
Sherishutterbug93 on February 2nd, 2004 07:27 am (UTC)
She is smiling! :) Thanks, Sabine! :) I think she has that look on her face because I was about to throw he toy to her. ;) Hope you have a nice week too! :) *HUGS* to you and Lauser! :)

sydney looks so vibrant in that one! The quality is sharp and excellent!
Sherishutterbug93 on February 2nd, 2004 07:29 am (UTC)
Thanks Smitha! I love my new toy! :) I can't wait to take it to NY! :) Speaking of which, will you be posting photos of your recent trip? :)

Aw! Sydney looks all happy and excited!! When I was reading your post, I thought "Oh too cold for Ice cream, then I remembered where you live!" Duh.... I didn't watch the Superbowl either!
Sherishutterbug93 on February 2nd, 2004 07:32 am (UTC)
She was so happy (I took it right before I threw her favorite toy to her) :) And after reading your reply I remember seeing a news story in NY about people who were eating ice cream on the Staten Island Ferry in January - now that's crazy! :) And woo hoo! Another super bowl non-watcher! :) Bet Dave was watching, though, huh?
WE ALL NEED A SENSE OF HUMOR: Sweetheartsbeam861 on February 2nd, 2004 08:58 am (UTC)
Dave only watched parts of it. We had a Superbowl party at Church. The men stayed in one room and watched the game, the women stayed in another and played Catch Phrase. The game got turned off at half time, and everyone ate. We left before the game was over.
Dave kept on wondering around between the rooms. I think he couldn't decide what to do, since he wasn't intersted in either team in the game. After we got home he did some work online, and caught the end of the game.

Oh, now isn't she just beautiful enough to be anyone's test shot. She certainly looks a very happy dog.
Sherishutterbug93 on February 2nd, 2004 10:59 pm (UTC)
Thanks Carrie. :) She's smiling (or I'd like to think she's smiling) because I'm about to throw her toy to her. :) And Sydney is such a fun loving dog that it was hard to see her so down when she was ill last year. Hope Tess is doing well. :)
