Another visit from Desiree has gone by and I am sad she is gone. This year she came down for 4 whole days! It was so nice. We went to see Dave Matthews Band in concert at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls. Dave is kind of a tradition for me and Desi.
I think I am getting old because although it was great to be spending time with Desi, I did not enjoy the crowd at the concert. We wpent quite a bit of time talking shit about all the drunk people and even captured a random hook-up happening right in front of us. (pictures to come.) Dave didn't even play the good music from (I can't believe I am about to use this term) my day. There was alot more electric and not so much acoustic love. I am sad to say that will probably be my last Dave concert.
We shared one Heiniken because they were 13 bucks. I know! DAMN!
Random hook-up between strangers are fun.
After the day of the concert we didn't have a lot to do so we did a photo shoot. I discovered some awesome places around town to do some more urban looking photography. I still haven't prefected the urban look but I will keep at it.
I had to school Desi on the proper technique for self-portraits in the car.
I have been doing a lot of digital photography lately so I learning how to do all those nifty photoshop tricks. Not only did I crop this puppy in but I also completely covered the heater thingy and the light switch. That is awesome!
I am going to be 29 on Friday! I am feeling pretty nostalgic this time around. I have had so many, many years of good times with my super fantastico friends and my awesome family. I did my best to dig up old picturse of everyone but I didn't any of some of my most favorite people in the whole world.
Nilla is a Maltese/Bichon mix. It sounds very fancy schmancy, I know. But all it really means is that she's high maintenance. I have to give her a bath every other day, I have to pay someone to cut her hair (which I have yet to do because I can't stand the thought of it, I just cut it myself) and I have to keep her delicate little nails trimmed up.
She is really cute after she has been blow-dried, huh!
She hates having a bath. She shakes the whole time she is in the tub and bites at the brush when I am blow-drying her. That is the part that I didn't sign on for. I am all for the cutesy schmootsy Doggies, but I didn't sign on for the indignance and down right stubborness. I might as well have had another kid!
After it is all said and done she Rocket Dogs(the link is not Nilla but a great example of her rocket dogging) around the house for like ten minutes. Stopping only to push her head across the floor like she's trying to wipe off the cleanliness and to scrath at various parts of her body.
