After & Before, and other such nonsense

Warning: this is going to be a very unorganized and picture-heavy post.

It's been a busy fall for us. We are finally enjoying some cooler weather (read: upper 70's) with sunshine!

To celebrate, I baked my first-ever-100%-from-scratch chocolate cake. The recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman, who incidentally has a new cookbook hot off the presses. You can find the recipe right here. And while it was a little more difficult than opening a box of cake mix, I have to admit the result is worth the effort. This cake is delicious!

This past weekend found us with no pressing obligations, so we took advantage of the perfect weather and headed out in the NSX. Top off weather and I didn't even need a jacket (although I did bring one just in case). I'm not very good at taking photos like this, but you get the idea.

Dan had today (Veteran's Day) off. What do you think he did?

I meant to post that photo last, but I am having a heck of a time getting blogger to allow me to rearrange photos. For instance these next ones are supposed to be "before and after" puppy haircuts, but instead you must bear with me with the "after and before"...

The dogs were long due for haircuts.

Here is Bentley's "after":

Isn't he cute?

And here is Bella, chillin' on the couch. She doesn't look too happy, does she?

Here's her official "after" shot:

They are so furry and cuddly right before a haircut.

Reminds me of when they were baby puppies. Hard to believe that they turn 4 years old this month!

Happy Autumn!
