Dreary Day

Its foggy and grey here in DFW this morning and boy, I am wishing I stayed home. Hubby took a sick day today as he hasn't been feeling 100% the past few days and it took all my willpower not to climb back under the covers and snuggle with him and the pugs for the rest of the day. So now I sit at work WISHING I was at home with my family in bed. At least it is Thursday and almost the weekend, a weekend where I get to stay home, sleep late and basically recharge.

Hubby and I went away to an SCA event in Mississippi last week that was a week long; it is called Gulf Wars and it is wonderful. As we are the Prince and Princess currently we had an awful lot of work to do there but it really was a pleasure. There were about 3,500 people in attendance, everyone dressed in medieval clothes and living like you would in medieval times. Since we are Royalty we got to sleep in a cabin onsite but most people camp. Walking around during the week was nifty, so many of the campsites are gorgeous to look at with period pavillions and streaming silk banners.

We had such a wonderful time that week it has been hard this week getting re-adjusted to the real world. I mean, who wouldn't have trouble going back to work and doing mundane things after literally being treated like a Princess for the past week? So I've been kinda sad this week and the rainy weather hasn't been helping my mood much.

The pugs stayed home for the week and I missed them terribly! I had a dog sitter come feed them in the mornings and our friend K come visit them in the evenings. The house was a mess when we got back; the pugs somehow figured out how to get around the barrier fence we set up around the couches and they were covered in hair and unfortunately pee when we got home. :( They have since been vaccumed and steam cleaned but it is very frustrating to have to go through all that. The pugs have a doggie door yet they choose to pee on the furniture. Hubby was seriously upset about the accidents but was better after everything was cleaned.

Anyways, here are some pics taken recently of Hubby and I.

Me looking all princessy. ;)

Hubby firing up the troops!

Hope everyone is well out there in blogger land! I know I don't comment much but I'm still here and reading! ;)


  1. Does mom have to call you "Your Majesty" now? After being treated like a Princess all week? Mom says she prefers current times to medieval. She likes things like toilets and showers and really cold milk. lol.
    What a beautiful dress you are wearing. What a great outfit hubby is in. I am sure you made them both. We are looking forward to your finished gown.


  2. @ Roxy - Right now since I am the Princess in the SCA I am 'Your Highness'. When I step up as Queen on May 16th then I will be 'Your Majesty'. But your Mom can call me whatever she likes. ;)

    I did make the dress I am wearing but I didn't make the tunic Hubby is wearing; a friend actually made that. :)

  3. I love the new pictures! You two are a lovely couple! Hope the pups are doing well!
