Company Girl Coffee 5.29.09

Hi Company Girls!

I know this was a short week with Memorial Day, but wow it flew by! I can't believe it's Friday already again (although I'm grateful).

Does anyone have big plans for the weekend?

Dave's frisbee team that he travels with has tryouts for the next two weekends. The tryouts usually last most of the day. So I think I'll be spending some quality time at the pool with a book or my Bible.

Yesterday we had our preconstruction meeting with the builder of our home. The guy's name was Brad, and he was very nice. I'm so thankful that all the people involved in the building of our house are kind and easy to talk to. It makes the process so much easier!! Brad told us that he plans to have our house complete and ready to move into by the end of August, regardless of what may happen with the weather. (That was very reassuring to hear!) So 3 months, and we're in!!

Dave and I stopped by the house afterwards to see if there were any updates. I'm not quite sure what they did other than pile a bunch of gravel at the front of the lot and send an earthquake through the sidewalk. But I will assume they know what they're doing. :)

Other events of the week would be that Monday was our friend Emily's 28th birthday, so I went out to eat with her and a few of our girlfriends at Biaggi's. I got chicken marsala with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was pretty yummy. Then Tuesday or Wednesday Maggie appeared to eat or attempt to eat a slug, which was one of the grossest things I've had to deal with in regards to my dogs. She had slug gook stuck all over her mouth and in her teeth. It was like rubber cement. As I sat there using a kleenex trying to get all the slime off, Dave stood there saying, "Wow, Maggie, your mom really loves you." Clearly. If scraping slug goo off her snout and out of her teeth doesn't show love, I don't know what does.

So how about the weekly Bible trivia?

Last week's:
Which of the following were the Israelites not allowed to eat?
a) storks
b) chameleons
c) bats
d) all of the above

Answer: d. They weren't allowed to eat any of them, along with a whole slew of other animals. Check it all out in Leviticus 11.

And now for some new trivia:

True or False: People weren't given permission to eat meat until after the flood.

God bless!


  1. It's progress! ;) Pile of gravel or not it means the house is on it's way!

  2. True...after that they could. I'm pretty sure.

    My plans this weekend? To chill...we have had an eventful week. My husband was in the hospital all week, so we need to take it easy.

    Glad your house is coming along :)

  3. Haha, for some reason I really loved the story about Maggie eating the slug. It's amazing the weird things we'll do for our pets, sometimes without even thinking about the grossness factor until afterwards.

    Congratulations on your home! It is so exciting and wonderful to have your own place!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Thanks for sharing the slug story. =p I was a Pre-K teacher and let me just say that pets and kids are pretty similar. =p

    Looks like everything for the house is going smoothly. My sister is getting the keys to her new house today, so I can't wait to help her fix it up. That's the exciting part. I'm sure you guys are waiting in anticipation. When will it be done?

  5. I know your anxious for your home to be done. Hang in there! I am in the process of finishing a bathroom redo plus we added a walk in closet off the bathroom. It has been a long process. Well worth the wait though. I pray you enjoy this process and it's not too stressful!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi Kara, thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is great. I just subscribed! Looking forward to seeing the stages of your home!

  7. Oh my dog is always getting into things that I have to retrieve from his mouth....kind of gross but I'm a mom so you get used to those things! :0) A pile of gravel is a start....

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog Kara! I'm pretty relaxed on my son's hair-do's, but he doesn't have the texture for long hair so I felt like he looks like a caveman! I like it much better now.

    And my dog tried to eat snails, but they made him sick to his tummy, and as gross as the snails were, the other was even worse.

    Trivia answer: True. I think too.
    Have a great week!
