This is my 2-0 face...get it? :)
My morning began with taking the ol' Diezel dog into the vet to get his stitches out. Our vet clinic is an hour away and they are never on time, so this was literally an all morning/afternoon ordeal. But, on the upside, Diezel looks so handsome! His ears were already standing on their own after they took out his stitches and took off his goofy looking cup which, according to the vet, is awesome and relatively rare.
He looks so studly and grown up! Awwww!
Hubby and I are going to attempt to post/tape up D's ears ourselves...it didn't look too complicated, plus we have been researching it quite a bit, so hopefully we should be able to handle it. The vet told us that we are always welcome to come in if we find we aren't able to get them taped. She also said that if they aren't still a nice looking crop by the time D hits 4 months, we need to bring him back in. Here's what he looks like all posted up:
Field goal!!!! :)
Once Hubby got home from work, we went to a habachi grill called Yomato (apparently it's a chain so I figure I'd throw that out there since there is a possibility that some of you may know what I'm talking about). It was such a neat experience - I'd never been to one before. The chefs literally prepare everything right in front of you. The chef starts a fire below the little grill top thing and puts on a show for you by means of using his cooking utensils, dry humor, and your soon to be dinner num nums.
As you can see, there were other people (complete strangers) at our table...referring to the man in orange, not the chef in case you missed that ;-P I ended up being seated next to this sweet little old man - he reminded me so much of my grandfather who passed away around this time last year. This sweet little man told me about how when he was in the Army and in Japan he had experienced habachi grills before, except they made you sit on the ground. He went on to tell me that he had also been taken to Korea during his Army days when there happened to be a rice shortage, and because of which, they wouldn't allow Americans to have any rice. He definitely made my night - Hubby and I let him try some of our sushi and he was too polite to say, although his face was screaming it, that he really didn't care for it. The food was alright...I would definitely go back for the whole experience, probably not the food though. The sauce that they use on everything (it's brown...I don't know how else to describe it) was kind of an odd flavor. Maybe it's an acquired taste?
Hubby and I at the grill...he looks like a first class goober, does he not? ;-P
Once we got home from dinner, we decided we would watch a movie. Coincidentally (and luckily for Hubby!) Sydney White and Enchanted were on Bravo back to back...need I say more? :) Call me a baby, dumb, lame, whatever - I don't care! - Enchanted is one of my most favorite movies ever.
Giselle is such a sweetie and I think we could all learn quite a bit from her and her view of the world. Plus I love the song when they are in the park...you have to listen to it at least once...I promise it will be stuck in your head alllll day :)
Thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful birthday wishes via Facebook, texts, comments, and phone calls - you completely made my day!
