Libra is the only zodiac symbol that's neither animal nor human -- but surely that doesn't make you any less human. In fact, Libra is among the most sociable of the signs. As scales of old were really "balances," so to do you seek balance in all that Libra does. You respond to situations with grace as Libra attempts to put others at ease. Artistically, Libra tries to balance form, content, colors and elements, and for this reason can be drawn toward creative endeavors.

Well, a couple weeks ago we went up north to be apart of my brothers big day... and let me tell you.... it. was. beautiful! we had such a blast and the weekend was over before you know it. We danced the night away surrounded by friends and family, it was truly a wonderful time and I am so happy for the two of them. I wish them nothing but the best in life.
After we got back from work, Mike and I got back into the groove of working and but that soon got through off schedule due to a very busy, stressful (in a good way) and crazy labor day weekend! I took off the Friday before labor day to 1. take a 4 day work week, because, well why not? 2. I had a Dr. appt 3. We were picking up our new puppy!
Meet Mimi, the newest addition to the Kustra clan. She is just over 9 weeks old and about 1.5 lbs! She is a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and is just about the sweetest thing walking this green earth. However, I must admit, being a brand new dog owner is A LOT of work and I mean a lot. I get up at the butt ass crack of dawn to drop her off at my parents who are absolutely amazing and are watching her while Mike and I work. It's temporary until she is capable of being at home without getting into trouble. I am cleaning up poop and pee all the time and constantly saying "No!" to the little thing. The first couple night had been rough, but I think we are in a good place now.
She requires constant supervision which is exhausting but I have to admit, I just love her and as much as she wears me out - I don't care.... she is adorable and so sweet. I couldn't be happier. BUT in the midst of all this crazy summer busyness - my house is looking pretty pathetic! I have a hamper FULL of clothes which are not washed, I have a kitchen that is not cleaned, a bathroom which is covered in hair/makeup products, a bed that is not made and a fridge which is half stocked... and on top of that I have a leaky pipe and a shower that doesn't seem to want to get warm....so needless to say I am completely unmotivated in the home front and would rather buy a whole new house than deal with this one - OK I am half kidding.
I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend of playing catch up which I am not a big fan of, preparing for a get together on Sunday to watch the season finale of True Blood with some family and friends which means I have to get this house in order by then. And also taking sweet Mimi to her vet appt. I am also looking forward to reading some more of Catching Fire which is the second installment of The Hunger Games trilogy series, the first one was absolutely amazing and left my heart singing and racing all at once. Team Peeta all the way :)
I am also very excited about fall shows starting up, How I Met Your Mother, Weeds, Dexter, Greys Anatomy.... Eeeeee!!!!!!!! Our poor DVR is going to hate us with how much we are going to record, but alas by shows are back and this makes me happy!
Feels good to finally catch up, hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful fall weather we are having in Michigan, I just put on my first scarf of the season, and let me tell you - it felt good.
