What's going on?

What's going on here in Big Blue?

Lots of dogs.

I think the only way to narrate what's going on over here is through pictures. I've been taking hundreds of pictures a day because Artie's owners want to see him- so we'll start with weather.


Michigan seems to think it can still pretend it's winter (notice that giant ass icicle hanging off my gutters) I have started to rebel though and I did purchase a spring wreath for the door and I scored this cute owl planter at JoAnns. Here's a better picture.


I filled him with some silk lilies so I don't have to worry about watering him- but isn't he adorbs?! I might have to plant some basil in him and put him by my sink.

There has also been a lot of snuggling.


So much snuggling that poor Nate had four dogs and a wife touching him one night.


It even sometimes looks like a dog warzone- scattered paws EVERYWHERE.



I was visited by the elusive good hair day fairy, we had a date night where we watched Les Mis, the Hobbit and The Hunger Games and ate loads of goodies sent from my mom. We even have gone to Ann Arbor to meet my best friend and stopped in a few of my favorite stores. (From the day that we could not handle any. more. barking.)


When everyone isn't barking, we've managed to get some super cute pictures (including one of Teagan that I can't stop laughing about...)


I guess the long and the short of it is that Artie takes up a lot of time, but we're happy to have him.


Thursday afternoon I will be going to drop him off to his new parents and then I'm sure I'll have to break something with a sledgehammer. I'm getting DIY fever. I took last week "off" unintentionally but now I'm just getting cranky! Do you guys ever get like that?


The one good thing about us being stuck on the couch (Artie likes everyone on the couch...) is that we have been getting some serious planning, drawing and budgeting done. Silver linings! Yay!

Please my friends, tell me, what is going on in all of your lives?

  3. Aww, poor Artie :( Are you going to have his new people visit this week on your turf to introduce him a bit? Might help with the handoff on Thursday..............

    1. Artie's people actually live in Illinois- we're meeting in the middle for the exchange but I'm going to his house in June to check on him!

  4. Hooray for planning! Planning is my favorite! Snow is my least favorite. We got more of it over the weekend. Apparently mother nature missed the fact that it's almost April and Missouri. Therefore we should be done with snow.
    I love that owl planter. And I love your furry foster puppy. So sweet.

    1. Doing is my favorite...but I guess planning is an integral part of it. I went to college by St. Louis and I very vividly remember almost dying in Ice Storms- stay safe down there! Monday is April 1 and it is supposed to snow. Boo!

  6. BASIL OWL! BASIL OWL! (that's me chanting "basil owl" over and over until you plant the basil. I'm relentless!) I'm going to miss Artie!

  7. I'm ready for it to be spring. Salt Lake is having it's 2nd winter right now. So that sucks. But everything else is good. I feel like things in my life have been relatively low key. Your dogs melt my heart, as always.
