First haircut NOT given to me by Marion in oh, 12 years or so! It's hard to tell, but there are a lot of layers around the back.

I promise I didn't pick this book because Johnny Depp recommended it!

The US Embassy in Dublin. I had to get additional pages for my passport. No, Darth Vader doesn't live here.

Wes ran the Dublin Half Marathon today. He got a new personal best! 1:28:24

This one is for my mom - ham, cabbage, and potatoes. Proof that I've actually made it and Wes can confirm I ate it too!

*Note to readers- Wes uses that Q-tip on his running watch. It was not used in ears then placed on our dining table. Gross.

*Note to Kim - Check background before taking pictures.

Post workout din dins! Omelette, made with 1 full egg and one egg white, red peppers, onion, salt and pepper, all on a few boiled new potatoes and finished with a low fat cheese slice (Lidl has the best!). And of course a side of runner beans. Total Weight Watcher's points?? Only 4.5!

She was sleeping VERY deeply to allow me to get this picture. She usually wakes up as soon as I turn on the camera!

I don't usually pay too much attention to the musicians on Grafton Street, but these guys were actually pretty good. I even stopped to listen for a minute!

Why does my Spanish TV boyfriend have such horrible hair off the field?? He's much cuter when he wears his little headband thingy. This was the first time I've heard his voice. I was very excited. Wes was not amused.

We went out for dinner and a drink. I got a half pint because of my diet and I liked the little mini pint glass. It was very cute!

Tonight was the last night of boot camp for some of the people in the class. She had bags of treats for them, but actually ended up giving one to everyone there since she had extra. This cupcake was in there and man was it tasty! The best part is I'll get another one next week on my official last day! Score!

Found in Dublin for an extortionate price!

I always thought this was Virginia Creeper, but in fact, I believe it's Boston Ivy. Whatever, I love when it turns red!

Wes is enjoying his beer in the sweet beer cozy I brought him back from the US. I need to keep my man's beer cold!

Sunday, 13 September 2009


Hmmm...that looks familiar! Day 150

Wes and I made our way out to Farmleigh for SeptemberFest 2009. We got there, the lines for the food were horrendous, the lines for the beer were horrendous, we shared a cupcake from the Farmer's Market, and we left. We're lame.

Henry Street and the Stiletto in the mean the Spire. Oh, and a BRILLIANT blue sky! :-)

This is her favorite spot on the couch. This means she takes up the whole freakin' thing when she sleeps here!

This is a cool sign in Dublin. I pass it a lot and always mean to take a picture of it. Note the strange statue in the car park in the bottom corner. Weird.

Off I go! 20 points per day! Eek!!!

As part of Health Kick 2009 I have started taking a daily vitamin. The challenge here is remembering to take it.

Just another day running errands in Ireland!

*I promise this is my last shoe post for awhile!

I don't think my Nikes knew what hit them!
