Daughter Visits, Lunches and Grand Dogs

******PLEASE click on "The Daily Puppy".......Please?********

My daughter Miss Nan came to see me!!!!! YAY, we had the best time, but then....we always do. She brought my Grand Dog the beautiful Malibu to see me and to play with her cuz dogs. Not too much fighting and vying for attention but.....a few little very minor "Alpha Dog" run-in's. Nothing serious though. Her bird, my grand-bird Sculley who lives with Prince and I for a while was so happy to see her. He started going crazy as soon as her heard her voice!! He loves my kiddo......but not nearly as much as I do. He's just staying with Grandma Gigi for awhile.
I love my Grand-Dog and excited to see her as well. Wow, did she look great.

Lunches this week are listed below. What a great time I had taking my daughter around with me to meet everyone. She is my sunshine........

My catered lunches this week, ready to go.......

Bacon, lettuce and tomato salad with my own special BLT salad dressing, cabbage and apple slaw, wheat thins, 1/2 an apple, a Splenda mint and low fat, low sugar gingerbread men with Splenda sweetened white chocolate on the backside........

Scully our Quaker Parrot. He talks up a storm. He's been so grouchy lately because he's molting....

Cousin 4 holding Sculley for the first time.....awww........

Sculley kissing his Mom my kiddo. Did I mention how happy I was to see her? I talk to her every day, but seeing her is so special.......

My beautiful Grand Dog Malibu. Look how shiney her coat is. She was so good but then again, she always is (after a wee little marking of territory....get it...."wee"....never mind.....)

Again, beautiful Malibu. I swear, she is America's next top doggie model right??? Fierce......

My darling girl had to go back home today. I miss her already and can't wait to see her again. We talked about 4 times while she was making her 2 1/2 hour journey and that still wasn't enough. That's my kiddo you know????? My heart.....my joy.....

  1. So, how do you stop your 7 month old puppy from destroying everything when you leave him alone....or yelling his head off when he is left outside?? I know its seperation anxiety but arrrgghhhhhh

    Thank you for your lovely comment today :)

  2. Nothing like family and to have her right in your own house for a few days of one on one had to be the best ever!! So glad you had some joy and happinesss. You share so much of that with others. You are blessed.

  4. Your Sunshine is beautiful. It is amazing how much our children are missed, following such a nice visit! Your photos are all fantastic! Lunch made me hungry, I guess I had better get something to eat!
    Make it a good day!

  5. Your blog is full of life and fun - I especially like the title :-) Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments - I don't know about making you laugh (yet), but how about you being the first to respond to my post to the right of my blog: "Some things that make me happy" :-)

  11. I love all the pet pictures...so cute. Those lunches look so yummy. I would love to try your dressing too.

  12. These puppies I keep clicking on just keep breaking my heart to see them without someone to love them and care for them. But I'll keep on clicking anyway... It's great that you had such a fantastic time with your daughter - love her dog too - take lots of good care of yourself Reggie Girl. Warm wishes and hugs, Vxx

  16. Great post..and I always click your daily puppy!


  17. Hi Gigi, I'm Grammy to my grands!!!! Your daughter is gorgeous. I know how you must miss her these days. It surely is hard to see our kids grow up and leave home. None of my 3 sons are near here--and I don't get to see any of them very often. Sniff Sniff!!!

    George's daughter and hubby don't have any kids but they do have two cats. SO---George has two Grand-cats....

    Glad you got to see your Grand-dog and Grand-bird.. Sounds like Birdie was glad to see Mama..

    Have a wonderful day.

  18. Hi Gigi,
    Thanks for visiting my blog and for the invite. Yours is making me hungry right now. Can you give me more info about the Friday shoot-outs? How do i get the weekly theme? find other participants blogs?

  19. I've wanted to get a parrot, but no one else in the house wants to. :o(

  20. Awww, I loved this post. Hope your not suffering too many withdrawls from your daugher and her pets leaving. Loved all the pics!

  21. Ohhhh your lunch looks delicious! Nothing like seeing our daughters, eh? I get to see mine this weekend--woot! OH! AND my granddog, Tyson! :)

  22. Love the boxes lunches. Yum! I'm so glad you had a nice visit with your daughter and grand dog. That Quaker Parrot is so cute!

  23. Another food post? I am going to have to put a zipper on my lips. I get so hungry when I come here (and a few other places make me want to eat, too). Willow, I am talking about you.

    I am going to have to stop hanging out with people who post food.

    I love all the photos. That bird is so cute.

    Great looking dog, too.

    Do you think Oprah knows about us yet? We are waiting.

    Well, now I have to go find something to eat.

  24. Malibu looks so happy, bright and intelligent. He is certainly beautiful. I know what you mean about daughters. My dear girl lives with me and we are best friends. I feel blessed to have her in my life.


  25. THAT is a fantastic lunch!! I wish you lived near me then I could buy some lunches like that, what a fab combination. the picture had me getting really hungry over here!! Loved the bird, my sis has 2 parrots named Newton and Magic and they are such joksters. And Malibu, what a great name, it suits her! She would love our Cody, I can picture the two of them frolicking in the grass over here together. Take care, hope that you are feeling okay girlfriend. thinking of you. Deb

  26. Great, now I'm going to be singing that song all damn day.

    OK getting caught up on blog reading. BRB.

  31. What a beautiful blog you have!
    I certainly understand not wanting to spend any money on improving a non-profit site, which is why I offer my free do-it-yourself tips and tricks. I designed my own blogs not too long ago, learning things the hard way. I pass these on to my readers in the form of free tips. All it takes is time and hard work to get a do-it-yourself blog makeover. Winning a free makeover does the trick, too!
    I stumbled on a site that may be of interest to you:
    Good luck! :)

  32. That sounds like a great visit! You're lunch looks delicious! I used to always want a parrot but after having a cockatiel, I don't want another bird ever lol. Malibu is gorgeous though!

  33. Did you ever sing "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine" to your daughter? I sang it to both of my kids when they were little...actually I still sing it to them. They'll never grow up in my eyes.

  34. Aw, ScullyBird...don't worry you're still handsome half nekkid. I send you beak smoochies too!

  35. This is such a fun blog....I am putting it on my blog list. Hope you will stop by my blog. I am a new blogger. This is my second month in the world of BLOG. I am great give away this month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
    Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party Give Away,(over 300) that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
    Also, if you mention blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...Just be sure and let me know that you did. How is that for an incentive?
    I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally... I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members. In May, there will be some fun blogs coming from Disney World with the grandkids. I hope to blog every night, in case you like a good trip report. And there will also be a great Disney giveaway.
    I am so thankful for all my new friends.

  36. This is my first visit to your blog and am excited to read more. Love your blog. I understand the kids and grand ones. My daughter lives 3 hours away and I miss them. I went up this past weekend and as always I have such a great time with them and the grandkids. Grandkids are so special.

  37. Gorgeous grand-doggy, Reggie!

  38. Geeze Gina you have so many fans I had to scroll and scroll to get down here to leave you a comment>LOL
    Loved the pics of the packed lunch, kids, birdy, doggies- OH precious~!!
    WELL Do you want a chickie dear friend??
    Hugs, and Happy Easter.. Patty

  39. Well, I knew by the title that I would love your blog! Thanks for the visit!
    Nice looking dog! Poor parrot - hope his feathers come back soon!
    I think I just ran out of exclamation points. Yes, I'm strange.

  40. So glad you had a great visit with your daughter, she looks adorable, of course you wouldn't disagree!! Seriously i have only one daughter and she is over 2500 miles away and don't get to see her that often and i miss her so. Loved all the family pics. Wishing you and your family the most blessed and happy Easter.

  41. I love Sculley! Poor little guy, grouchy because he's molting. Is that like having a bad hair day? I just got a big smile out of that photo and what you said about it. :)

  42. Hi my dear Reggie Girl,

    How's the loving momma to beautiful Ms. Nan..? Whoa, I almost feel how you felt when she went back home. You must be very loenly like me whenever my daughter leaves me to go back to her school dormitory..

    Thanks for choosing me to choose the subject for this coming Friday's Photo Shoot Out.

    Because of the foods you posted, I was inspired to consider "MY HOME TOWN'S NATIVE FOOD AND RESTAURANT SHOOT OUT?" A town cannot be completely beautiful and worthy to visit if any town cannot offer it's own native food, beer and a place to hang out.. right? So I'm choosing Bar, Restaurant, Entertainment and Recreational Area Shoot Out including the Food it serves.

    Please advise how you feel about this.. Come on Girl, pls reply soon so I can start as soon as I can..

    Have a lovely day with your Prince..

  43. I'm so so glad you two got to spend some time together!


I'm listening.....and while you're at it PLEASE make me laugh!!
