School & travel has left this BoiseBombshell with little time to blog. I have yet to fully enjoy all the pages of "The September Issue" of Vogue, sigh. Now that means I must be really really really busy, if I can't make time for Vogue. :-)
Last weekend we went back to Oregon to visit our families. My husband and his family had not all been together since June 2011, when his little brother got married. That's the one downside of living 6 hours away. Needless to say we all met up last weekend and had a wonderful time! My niece is a girl after my own heart. Halfway through dinner we realized she had been out of sight for a while and I found her rummaging through my purse, face full of lipstick. I must admit, if I were her I wouldn't done the same thing. She's too precious to get mad at. We got to spend time with our nephew too, who I swear is going to be taller than Corey and I within the next year or so, although that's not hard to do. We're both pretty short. On our Labor Day Weekend we even got to got to Crater Lake with my parents. My husband lived in Oregon his entire life, before college and he had never been, according to him. According to his mother he has, but that trip is still up for debate. Corey tends to forget anything that happened prior to high school. Seriously. The lake was AMAZING! It's 5 miles across! I have never seen such a miraculous color blue. I kept telling everyone it was the perfect toe-nail polish color, haha. What can I say? Once a bombshell always a bombshell.

Another exciting event in the DuPont house? Puppy talk! We've been thinking about getting one for a while, but haven't fallen in love yet. Well, I did fall in love with this one morkie, but he was $700, so moving on...One of my sister-in-laws, Adina, has been on a mission to find the perfect dog for my husband and I. She volunteers at an animal shelter in Hood River, Oregon and is constantly texting me pictures of the latest shelter puppies. Of course I'm really picky and have told her "no" to ever single one, until yesterday when she sent me pictures of this fuzzy guy.

Oh my goodness! I don't usually have a soft spot for pets of any kind, not even fish, but I do love this one. he's a poodle mix, which would be perfect for Corey's allergies and I think he's just the right size for us. Nothing is official yet, but we're hoping for the best :-)
On a side note, while we were in Oregon we booked a trip to Vegas for October! My husband has 2 brothers (one older, one younger, just like me, but I have sisters) who are both married and we've all been wanting to go to Vegas together for over a year. We finally agreed on a weekend and booked the trip. I've never been to Vegas, so I'm super excited. We'll be there October 12-15th and I'm thinking the weather will be perfect. I can't wait to channel my slutty/sparkly side of style. haha
We're going camping this weekend, NOT a BoiseBombshell favorite, but it makes my husband happy, so I'll go. Next week I have 2 paper due and I'm hosting a baby shower Saturday, then we're booked on the 22nd. Our next "do-nothing" weekend isn't until September 29th, when we might go pick up the fuzz ball. Fingers crossed! :-)
Did I mention that I got a new job at a private family practice in Boise? I originally interviewed in May and they offered me the job, but then ended up switching the days they needed me, which didn't work with my school schedule. So then I tried rearranging my class schedule, but that didn't work either. In the end I had to turn down the offer. Last week one of the physicians called me to offer me the job again and said they arranged their schedule to meet my school needs. Praise the LORD!!! I am so thrilled for this opportunity. I start next Thursday, the 13th.
I do enjoy being busy. I feel blessed to have so much going on, but it does make me neglect my blog...and my homework. haha
Don't forget the season premiere of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team is tomorrow on CMT! http://www.cmt.com/show/dallas_cowboys_cheerleaders/season_7/series.jhtml.
