Big News!!

We're expecting a little one!!!

Of the canine variety, of course.  Fooled you, didn't I?  Good gracious, I am funny.

Meet Lola, the newest addition (and only addition, I guess) to our little family.  We pick her up in 3 weeks and she's the sweetest little thing in the whole world. 

She's an Aussiedoodle, which sounds really prissy but Aussiedoodles are FIERCE!  Her mom is an Australian Shepherd and her dad is a Standard Poodle.  I'm allergic to all dogs except for poodles (my husband is THRILLED about this fact), so a Doodle was a must in puppy shopping.  And we went to visit this little lady yesterday and I picked her up and rubbed her all over my face to see if I broke out in hives and my eyes swelled shut and nothing happened.  So, she's ours!

We've been talking about getting a puppy for like a year now, and every time I'd talk about how excited I was, my husband would be all, "you know, Ann, a dog is a big responsibility.  You have to walk it and wake up early and pick up its poop".  Duh, like I don't know that.  Especially since we plan on having kids someday, and I'm pretty sure THEY are a big responsibility.  I mean, you have to walk them, wake up early, and pick up their poop.  Except that with a kid, they do all that and then they take all your money and leave you.

I don't have any food pictures or recipes to share today.  I didn't cook a darn thing this weekend.  I did, however, eat a variety of delicious sandwiches and think I gained 5 pounds.
