It's time for another Instafriday, hosted by Jeannette at Life Rearranged.

J and I had a fun little Happy Hour last Wednesday with one of the new kids from work. Sometimes small gatherings are so much more fun than large ones.
My sexy man

We had some excitement to start off the weekend.  We were working in the yard and had opened the gate to get the hose at one point... About ten minutes later, I happened to glance over and realized the gate was still open! Gidget was standing, looking out at the street, but no Dozer to be found. For those of you that have been around awhile, you may remember that Dozer is male dog aggressive, so I was freaking out, thinking he would hurt somebody's dog!

I started walking around the neighborhood, talking to the neighbors, and no one had seen him... J brought Gidget to me to see if we could "track him" and he hopped in his truck to look farther and quicker. I called 911, they gave me the non-emergency line, the lady answers the phone and... here comes Dozer, trotting across the yard two houses down, wagging his tail, big ole grin on his face. Oh. My. God. Pretty anti-climactic, but an excellent end to a traumatic 15 minutes.

I took this picture as soon as we got him back in the house. He looks pretty tuckered out, no?

Sunday we headed over to my aunt and uncle's house for lots of food and fireworks. I made this Wave Your Flag Cheesecake for the party and it turned out fabulous! It was quick and easy and super-delicious.

I woke up Monday morning to this scene at the end of the bed.  Dozer doesn't realize he is not a poodle and apparently Gidget doesn't mind that she's about to be crushed.  He LURVES his seeester.

I got new pulls for the built-in's in the dining room. They are fabulous and I love them! I still have to paint the cabinet doors and the frame... Someday.

J has all of the crown moulding up and patched in the dining room.  He is apparently unhappy with the way the wood filler dried though, so I haven't been able to paint yet. Not sure what his plan is, but I hope he carries it out soon. I have yet to unpack practically anything, cause lots of my stuff is fragile, he has already knocked something over and broken it, so I wanted to wait until we were finished in the dining room to start unpacking. Alas, the project seems never ending.

What have you been up to in the last week? Probably more than us! lol

I love the picture of Dozer and Gidget together--we have a similar one of my parents' cats in which the 25 pound cat is laying on top of the 10 pound cat :)

I'm glad you linked to the cheesecake. It looks amazing!

Your dogs are adorable! I love the pics of them together. And I'm glad Dozer came back without too much headache. I'm always afraid of my two getting out because Zoey has ADHD (I swear!) and will go anywhere and Beefy is 8 lbs and not the easiest thing to see on the road, so I'm afraid she'll get run over!

I'm still chuckling about Dozer running back with a grin on his face. Little shat. That's totally a Franco move if I've ever heard one. ;)

Love the pulls.

I am so out of the loop! Please fill me in. Is Dozer yours now? I hope so! I freak too when I don't see my dogs in the same room with me so I can imagine what you were going through.
