Just to give some context: this is the first dog birthday that Scott has ever been around for. That's a good way to demonstrate how much he's really been gone in the last 3 years. Or wait. He was around for Scout's first birthday, I believe, but can't be sure if he was actually there on the day of. We were in the middle of PCSing.
So poor Jett turned one and two with just me around. And Scout turned 2 and 3 stuck with, again, just me.
To celebrate, we had pupcakes and chewed on some rabbits. To Jett's dismay, this was just a stuffed rabbit. But still, he could get out his aggression without killing an actual rabbit (again...that might have happened once last summer).
That was Friday night.
Saturday, we went on base for the Warrior Dog Dash.
He turned 3 and became attentive.

He who cannot be controlled a.k.a. Scout
I was impressed with the ginger's well-behavedness. Scott wrangled Scout the whole time. I knew this would happen so I "let" Scott run with Scout.
Then I went to a Noonday party with a friend. I bought nothing because jewelry and I aren't really a thing. I'm not sure how I feel about that brand either. They had a great leather bag I loved but $200 seemed a little steep and unnecessary. Is it wrong to think that these brands are exploiting people? But the bag I posted on Thursday has the same sort of story behind it. (Though, I don't think I could spend that much for an "unlined interior" anyway.)
I had two minor meltdowns on Saturday when #1 I tried to order an On Demand movie from DirecTV (note: they suck) and Scott ended up yelling at them on the phone and #2 When Scott decided to read my blog (which I didn't know he does every now and then). I just feel judged when people I know read my blog. I don't know why.
Then we watched Making History. The first episode is on Hulu. Very funny.
And then the O.J. Simpson story that's on Hulu and was previously on ESPN.
Because, obviously, there was no On Demand movie to be had that night. (We watched it Sunday. Hell or High Water and it was very good.)
Sunday was cleaning and basic chores that get us ready for another *shudder* week.
It's going to be a busy one. Here's your motivation:
