Just dreaming...

Happy Friday! Our tax return arrived, so now we are going to be spending our weekend fence shopping, wood chopping, and daydreaming. (Ok, so I definitely will be... Andrew might not be so quick to admit it.) The more work we get done, the closer we are to getting two sweet little pups of our own! That's right, TWO! If you had asked me a week ago if we were going to get two puppies, I would have said, "No way! Double the expenses and the poop!" But Andrew and I talked about it at dinner this week, and decided that since we'll have a glorious (excited, much?) fenced in backyard where the 'pup' will spend her days while we work, she should have a best friend to share her time with. Plus, I want a border collie and he wants a german shepherd... so that makes it a good compromise, right? I'm just a-day-dreamin' about...

...this lil' sweetheart...

...and this lil' sweetheart...

...growing up to be best friends!
(Just picture this as summer vacation 2010 or '11! Hahaha)


  1. Looks like a great combination of smarts and good looks! I'd love to see the selections of fencing you're looking at... are y'all thinking chain-linked, or more natural wood posts, or more like white picket?

  2. We want to something pretty in the front, but chainlink the rest. (haha- business in the front, party in the back) We're going to check some things out tomorrow and see what we can work with in our budget. You know I'm a sucker for white picket fences, but that might have to wait for house #2 down the road.

  3. I love the idea of a mullet fence! Puppies are just fabulous... I love Border Collies. Our Abby has a lot of Border Collie in her. Super smart, but beware the shedding!

  4. I know... the shedding is the only thing I'm worried about. I guess I'll have to invest in the Dyson vacuum made for animal hair! :)
