sharing family stories and fun finds on the Weekend Edit

Happy Saturday!

Quick question? Are dogs allergic to nuts?

Elliott (our Berner rescue) is recovering from an allergic reaction of unknown origin. I shared his symptoms in my Stories over the weekend. This is the face he makes at the vet.

Do they make epi-pens for dogs? Elliott may need a little epi-puppy pen until we figure out the source of his allergy. Here is what went down:

The other day I reached into the back seat (which I will never do again after watching the first episode of this amazing show with Bryan Cranston) and I spilled my Realtor life container of mixed nuts.

When I got home I scooped up a handful on the floor of the backseat and just tossed the mixed nuts into the driveway for the birds. Now I am wondering if Elliott got into them and had an allergic reaction.

This is Elliott finally settling down with our favorite blanket to fight over in the family room. With that face I might buy him his own blankie.

My husband told me he wants to get a ….. paint sprayer. What could possibly go wrong?

Here is a peek of our living room this week.

My husband has many talents but apparently, the one that will have the ladies lining up at the door (or on a dating site in the event of an “accidental incident with his first wife (me), is for his carpentry skills.

And, the busier he is with work the more he whittles away in his garage.

Last week I shared these ideas for our 2 story living room wall. I was so excited until he mentioned a paint sprayer.


Anyone from Colorado? 

I have a flurry of first-time home buyers and these young professionals are getting shut out of the Denver real estate market with appraisal gaps, cash offers and buyers waiving inspections. My daughter who owns a condo in downtown Denver is getting nervous that she may have to live with us (again) to save money to buy a future home.
