Insert clever comeback title here...

Saddle up ladies and gentlemen for the ever lengthy "comeback" post! The other day someone pointed out that it's almost been a year since I last blogged! Time flies eh?

This year has been a big one for our family. Here's what you've missed:

We got a new dog! Funny story that's worth sharing. Casey and I started talking about growing our little family (nope still no babies. Check back in 10 years...maybe). So I put my name on the list of our local shelter for them to call us when they got a wiener dog in. Just in case. Well I got a call the Thursday before President's Day weekend. They told me they had a black and brown female weiner dog (sound familiar?) and that her picture was online. Casey and I pulled her picture up and she was the spitting image of our little monster!

Now up to this point we had decided that having two dogs would be too much work. Twice the poop to clean up, twice the barking, and twice as many bodies to find someone to watch when we go out of town. So we were just window shopping.

So Monday morning rolls around and we both head to work. Or so I thought... silly me! I get a picture message of him and this dog that says, "This is Alice, she goes by Allie"! Can you believe it? He said she was terrified and was growling and snaping in the corner of her cage but when he went to get her she calmed down and snuggled. How could he resist?

So long story short we got another little monster. And she is awesome!




Next up I graduated. Yep that's right "I'm a big kid now"! I'm a bonified Registered Nurse now. Watch out!


Found out I'm gluten intolerant. That's been quite a change for my baked goods loving, fat face stuffing self.

Casey broke his ankle.


I met my birth mom. Yep that's all you get about that. Ok here's a couple pictures.



That about sums it up for now. Hey I forgot... I like blogging! Maybe I'll have to make this a regular thing again? Yes?

Love the lengthy, almost got too long i was going to skip to the pictures explanation of the new dog, and the 5 words on birth mom. Fantastic!

i glad you are back on here. but don't make this an excuse for us not to see each other now :) Who was un-tact-ful towards you? I hope it was not the Walmart costume...

Brenda- somehow it seemed less of an over share to tell my new pup to the world wide web! There's a lot of peeps out there in blogsphere (not that I think they read my blog...)

Nicole- Um hello!!! Have you met me? Of course it wasn't the Wal-mart costumes! Those were classic!!! And as for the tactless crusader I will have to share that with you later :)

Glad you are back. Glad you graduated, found your birthmom, and got Alice. Sorry Casey broke his foot, someone was a jerk and that you can't have gluten. I think I covered everything:) Again, I am glad you are back.

Karen said...

Look who's blogging again! :) You look a lot like your birth mom. I bet she LOVED meeting you!

SO much! So much! I am so happy about Alice, your birth mom, and that Casey's ankle is ok...
