It's Puppy Time!

Everyone knows I've wanted a puppy/dog forever. Now that we have a house and a big fenced in yard, the time has come!

Last week I was bored at work and decided to check out the Wayside Waifs site. I found a litter of 6 adorable Lab puppies and sent a picture of one to Zach. Usually he just says "yeah that's nice" and tells me to "forget about it". But this time he was interested! We decided to go see them Thursday night. There were only two there when we got there and thankfully the lady who fostered the mom and the puppies was there! We started talking to her and found out that the two puppies that were still there had been adopted. You see, they are all a part of a movie that's being filmed in Kansas City called Matchmaker Mary. Starring Dee Wallace Stone (the mom from ET!) and Jeff Fehey (some guy from Lost). So most of them were adopted by the crew and actors (including Dee Wallace!). But she told us that there was one more, Misty, who was still filming and would be done Saturday. So we put our name on the "wait list" and hoped for the best. Since the actors and crew got first dibs we thought we wouldn't get her. But they called us Saturday evening and told her that nobody claimed her, so we get her!! She had her surgery today and we can pick her up Thursday!! I'm so excited!!

I found this blog about the movie and a picture taken Friday. Since Misty was the last one to film, I assume this is her... If not it's one of her litter mates.

Tonight Zach and I are going to PetCo (where the pets go) to get all of her supplies! Crate, Bowls, leash, collar, Kong, toys, balls!!! She's going to have it all (don't tell Zach)!

We still aren't sure of the name. We've toyed around with Missy (Misty is a stripper name in our opinion). But I think we'll have to meet her to decide. We'll keep you updated.

We'll also post some more pictures that don't have complete strangers in them!

See ya later!

Dear Shutterfly,


I sat down, all prepared to write this really neat entry about this really cool tradition that Zach and I have and Shutterfly has ruined my whole plan...and a lot of other potentially cool entries.

You see, I've had a digital camera for about 2 years now and I have uploaded every single picture I've taken to dear ol' Shutterfly and deleted them off my craptastic computer to save disk space. So apparently Shutterfly now has this "cool new website" that PREVENTS YOU FROM COPYING PICTURES!!!!! I've been trying to right click, ctrl+c, and any other copying techniques I know (ok, so those are the only ones I know) and nothing happens!!! SOOOOO no pictures of cool things that have happened before today on my blog (wedding, new house, cool traditions, drunken stupors..) :-( Sad day. Maybe I'll be able to figure something out. But until then...

So long Shutterfly. You bitch. We are through!
Oh but Zach, Congrats! I love you!!

Yeah, I already had this gem saved to my computer. Enjoy.

See ya around!

And....Five! Six! Seven! Eight!

*Jazz Hands* and Pose....

Oh here I go again. This whole "blogging" thing. Which, by the way, I totally abhor the word "blog". But whatever, it is what it is.

I'm not exactly sure what's going to take place on this blog. I'm sure there will be some pictures, some stories, some ramblings and some complaints. I guess whatever strikes me, I'll write about.

Some background on me:

I just got married. (Ok, 6 months and 3 weeks ago). But I guess you are a "newlywed" for a year right? Shortly after getting married, we began looking for a house and found one fairly quickly. It is brand spakin' new and we got it for a steal. The whole "house buying process" was horrific and therefore we'll probably end up staying at this house for quite some time. But we love it. We just got another fabulous deal on a privacy fence and had it installed this week. Next up - a Fido! I also started a new job at the first of the year. I'm still not sure how much I'm going to divulge on here about my job, but you could say I'm kind of a big deal. Ha! Not really.

So here you have it. My first entry. Awesome huh? Hopefully my next one will be even more captivating!

See ya around!
