So we were at home today ... thinking it was way too nice to be home, so spur of the moment we jumped into the car and took off to West Virginia. We figured we should take advantage of our last weekend with no puppy! (who by the way we met on Friday ... too cute for words)
So we went to Harper's Ferry: which among many things was the starting place for Lewis and Clark's expedition; starting place for George Washington's surveying career; Place where John Brown's Rebellion took place; and also where the first African American College in West Virginia was built! What a fun day!
This was the moment I became overwhelmed ... who knew there were memory foam beds for dogs?! Shh don't tell Elbie ... He will be sleeping on a towel. There are literally 10 different kinds of crates, not to be confused with carriers ... which are different yet from doggie playpens?! All ideas of how crazy I thought I was about having a dog and treating it well have flown right out the window! Don't get me wrong he will be loved and fed and walked, he will go on hikes with us and trips to the ocean ... but if I don't even sleep on memory foam I can guarantee you He won't be either!
I am terrible at this whole blogging on a regular basis deal but I come baring news! Wicked exciting news that I have jumped on the bed about, seriously ... I did last night ... and my husband, Peter, hasn't left me yet, good sign!
Announcing Elbie!! We are expanding our family to 3. Next weekend we go pick up our little 11 week old Tibetan terrier. My mom called me last night and said "you can't have a puppy!" Oh contraire my dear mother!! I really think she was just so used to telling me "No you can't have a dog" for the past 20 something years that she forgot I now live in my own apartment with a boy and soon a puppy!!! Mom will be excited once she meets him :) Who can help but love this face!?
January 8, 2011 I married my bestfriend. We moved into a little town in Northern Virginia about 40 minutes from Washington D.C. We are currently getting settled and finishing our fix up of our first place. Pictures to come.
