New Baby Needs a Name!

We’ve been on the search for a second Corgi for just over a year, and this weekend we finally, FINALLY, found a beautiful baby boy who will be coming home with us in only 7 days!  We visited him at his home this afternoon, met his parents, learned all about his pedigree from the very…

Old Married Couple

We celebated our 5th anniversary with a 4-day staycation right here at home. On the actual day (May 28th) we did a little shopping and wandering around, then came home and made dinner. We took tons of pics, but here’s just a few to get us started: I think we both look tired here.  We…

So, before we moved in, new carpet…

Spring = PT

As soon as the weather warms up, PT becomes an afternoon staple at our house. PT means playtime.  Playtime for Dex, that is.  We can’t say the actual word, because he recognizes it and immediately goes in search of a B-A-L-L and heads for the front door.  Eventually, he’ll learn what the initials mean, and…

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Matt and I cook homemade meals about 3 times a week, and eat the leftovers on the remaining days.  We plan our menu on the weekends and make a grocery trip for enough food to last us the entire week.  Doing things this way has saved us a ton of money and has improved our overall…
