{Pretty flowers and a new little buddy}

We are dog sitting for a friend of ours this week, and although he is a very sweet black lab that gets along great with our dogs, at this very moment, he is barking VERY loudly because he needs to be taken out, so I have to make this post brief. I just didn't want the day to go by without sharing two things.....

**These beauties....

Pink peonies!!
These are my sisters favorite flowers, and I must say, I am in love with them too!! They have them at Trader Joe's right now ($6.99 for 5 stems), so I couldn't pass them up (and as you can tell, I splurged and got 2 bunches!!)

**And this little guy......

His name is "Red" :)
He is our new little buddy. I don't think I mentioned it on here, but my beta fish "Jobin" passed away on the same exact day that Ali's fish did (weird, right?! totally!). I waited a little while (until I healed) to bring this little guy home! He is so pretty and already seems happy in his new home! Welcome Red! We are so happy to have you in the fam!

I'll chat more tomorrow! Have a great evening!


Oh...P.S. - Tomorrow at 3 pm I have my VERY first baby doctor appointment. I get an 8 week ultrasound and an official check-in with my doctor!! I am so excited (and a little bit nervous if I'm being honest)! Fingers crossed that everything is moving along perfectly with our little tadpole! K? Thanks!! :)


  1. I love Peonies, they are my fav too! I wanted them in my wedding but they were not in season, so roses it was! I love red, and I love your tad pole!!!

  2. Welcome to the fam, Red!!! Are you coming ove rnow to bring me flowers, or tomorrow?? Ha ha!
