It's Market Monday! I love shopping and browsing for things online and so I thought I'd start a weekly "Market Monday" blog post and share with you random cute, fun and interesting things we find. And occasionally we'll include product reviews too.

For me:
ADORABLE!! Check out these super cute schnauzer / terrier heels from www.modcloth.com



I WANT!!


And for the bb's:
We got these disposable, reusable and waterproof booties from PAWZ as a x-mas gift from Auntie for Hampton and ZuZu. I'm really looking forward to trying these out!
Pic and description from their website:


"Pawz is the world's only disposable and reusable, waterproof rubber dog boot. Made completely of natural rubber, Pawz are 100% biodegradable. Pawz are designed to go on easily and fit securely without zippers or straps. Fashionable yet durable, Pawz offers serious paw protection and is the most natural-feeling boot your dog can wear because without padding your dog feels the ground, providing a needed sense of security. Like a sock, the rubber moves with your dog, allowing full paw motion and maximum comfort. And imagine never losing another expensive dog boot again! Comes 12 in a package and each boot may be worn many times."...they are $19.99 cdn for a package!

We will try these out this week and I'll write up a review for our next market monday!

On Monday we celebrated Dave's birthday by going ziplining up at Whistler.

Wheeee! Its my birthday!

Wheee! This is awesome!

View from one of the tree tops where we zipped off of. Beautiful!

Ziplining was so much fun! Its a little scary at first but once you get the 'hang' of it, its a piece of cake.  Speaking of cake, when we got home, we had some yummy tiramisu and Dave made his bday wishes.

Hampton and ZuZu thought it was their birthday

We had a great day and it was a great start to the new year.  xo

I was recently browsing for some beagley things on etsy.com and found the following cute things:

Beagle leg warmers!! Can't get any cuter than that! By the way this is Hampton's fb and twitter friend Ellie. Isn't she cute? Visit the etsy shop by clicking here.

December

Wow I can't believe its already the end of December! It seems December has come and gone with the blink of an eye! And what an eventful month it was!

At the beginning of the month I went on a girls trip to Vegas with my sister and Mum. I can't remember the last time the three of us went on a trip together...just before Sis got married I think. Vegas was good. It was my second time there and the first for Sis and Mum. They both said they were glad they went and saw and had fun but don't think they would ever want to go back. I have to agree. It was good to spend time with them though and hope we can go on another girls trip soon. You can see a few pics of our trip from 'Henrii's' point of view here.

I got home from Vegas just in time for Hammie's birthday, see previous blog post. Then a few days later Dave and I took off to Hawaii. It was our first time there and we loved it!! Hawaii was never high on our list of places to travel but the deals were too good to pass up and we were feeling a bit depressed with all the dreary weather. We had a great time and would definitely go back. Here are two of my favorite pics from our trip:

Me reflecting on all the good things in life and feeling really lucky.

Pic of the sun setting. I like this picture b/c I feel like the sun rays are reaching out
to me and they look like flower petals (photo taken with my iphone)

You can see more pics of Hawaii from 'Henrii's' point of view here.
 
My top 2 favorite memories of the trip include:
- getting a surprise helicopter ride from Dave. I felt like the bachelorette (yes I watch that cheesy show). It was the first time for both of us riding in a helicopter and definitely got to see parts of the island from 2 of the best seats! 
- floating around in the ocean with Dave, waiting and watching for the sun to set. We managed to catch a few waves on our inter tubes (we called them 'bubbles'). True paradise! I'll never forget that day *big sigh*!

We got home from Hawaii just in time to get ready for Christmas. Christmas yesterday was great. We went over to my sister's house for a family dinner with my sister's family, my parents and Dave's parents. The pups had fun running around, sniffing out cousin Max the Cat and sharing bison bones with cousin Moby the Lab. They both got the cutest little scarves and neat biodegradable booties from Auntie and Uncle. I think Auntie felt they might need them after she saw ZuZu's facebook pictures of the booties we tried to make out of duct tape (hey they look cute though don't they?)! :P


The pups were sooo tired from all the activities (so was I). As soon as we got home Hampton ran for his favorite spot on the couch and started rolling around on his back as if to say "aaahhhh feels good to be home...good night!!"

All in all, December was good to me / us this year. I'm a little sad to see it all end (vacations, time off work, presents, shopping, etc!!) but at the same time ready for 2011!

Its our little baby monster's birthday today (lol), Saturday December 4th! We can't believe he's 2 already and at the same time has only been with us that long.  Over the last 2 years we have seen and enjoyed many sides of our little Hampton Monroe. Here are just a few pictures that help describe his colorful character:

Sweet puppy Hampton, about 3 months old:

 Resourceful (?) Hammie:


Handsome Hampton:


Happy Birthday Hammie!  Lots of lub, Mummy & Daddy!

Remembering Starbuck

2 years ago today Starbuck passed from a very bad cancer, hemangiosarcoma. There was a time when we couldn't even say out lout or write that he had cancer. We thought somehow this non-admission might reverse his diagnosis.  But it didn't. We still miss Starbuck with all our hearts. We still think about what more we could have done or what we should have done. But because of him, we cherish every moment we have now with ZuZu and Hampton. We still believe he is with us and his spirit does live on through Zu and Ham.

We love and still miss you very much Starbuck! xxoo
