70 Degrees? Yes, please.

Good morning everyone! Thanks for everyone’s comments and feedback about my guest post on Anne’s blog! I had no idea it would be so well-received, so thank you! Welcome to any new readers out there, too! Be sure to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow me on Twitter so you can keep up to date with my shrinking happenings! πŸ˜‰


Did everyone get a chance to enjoy the absolutely incredible weather we had yesterday? It was sunny, clear, and 70-degrees here in DC. While I do acknowledge that rainy, drizzly days are just part of Spring (April showers and all that jazz), I am so glad that there have been a couple of warm, sunny days thrown in the mix lately! I would have really loved to be able to go for a run but someone decided that my running shoe was his chew toy so that was kinda out. Instead, Amanda, Erin, and I took advantage of the sunny day and walked the pups to the DOG PARK! Yayyyyyy!


And of course, as soon as we got there they had to tweet about it obvi:


Hahahahaha. It was really fun! Prepare yourselves for gratuitous dog park photos (well, let’s be honest. At this point you’re probably just constantly prepared for them):



Of course Daxter got absolutely filthy rolling around in the dirt with the other doggies, but it made him sooooooo happy, so how can I complain?


Thanks bro for bathing him last night… hehe. While Daxter was lovin’ wrestling with this old Lab named Fitz in the above pictures, there was another dog that was literally lovin’ on him:


BAAAAHAHAHAHAHA. That little Boston Terrier would NOT stop humping that poor dog! Oh, dog park hilarity. I definitely need to go more often. It’s about a mile and a half from my house, so it’s a really great little exercise stint to walk the dogs there and back, plus it makes for really tired, really well-behaved doggies. And I’m going to need them to be well-behaved this weekend because it is JAM-PACKED. Not only is it Palm Sunday this weekend (thus there are fam-plans galore), but I actually have a legit social life this weekend, too! Shocking, I know. πŸ˜‰

As some of you already know, in addition to my regular job, blogging, and general kick assery, I’m also an independent stylist with Stella & Dot (jewlery!) and my friend Darcie recently became one too!

And since I’m totally shameless, here’s a plug: the Petra bracelet that I’m wearing in the above picture is 30% off (down to $69 from $98!) today and tomorrow with code GMA30. πŸ™‚

Aaaaanyway, Saturday afternoon I’m going to Darcie’s launch party, then tomorrow night is my birthday party! Anyone in the area who’d like to swing by and meet up, please feel free! Just email me (gretchen@honeyishrunkthegretchen.com) for the info!

Today is the last day to enter my blog giveaway! Make sure you get your comment(s) in before 3 PM today — I’ll be back to announce the winner later on!


  1. Looking forward to your party on Saturday night!! Loving the nice weather- I want it to keep up!

  2. Yay! Now all of the internets can see how white my legs are! Had a great time yesterday with you and the pups!!

  3. I love great weather. I’m happy to hear the north is warming up now because I’m going up to visit Diana in NYC in two weeks! You look great in those pictures. I love your dogs.

  4. That bracelet is so pretty!!!

    The dog park pics are pretty hilarious — my sister/bro in law recently got a dog and his new “thing” is to hump my bro in law’s face when he gets the chance. haha!

  5. Yeah, and who washed Daxter when you came home and promptly left his dirty butt lying around?? =P

    • She gave you a shout out!

      • Haha, yeah, i missed it.

  6. awww i love a good doggie park photo montage! =) I’m deathly allergic and the best way for me to enjoy dogs at play is in photos, videos or from afar… but sometimes i’ll take a few benadryl and join in on the fun! =) hehe


  1. Happy Birthday, America! | Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen! - [...] the lengthy holiday post, I think I’ll save those pics for later. After all, you already know my proclivity…
