Meet Bob Hope

So I got a puppy, 

 If you are my friend on Facebook or follow me on Instagram then you probably know already, and may even wish that I would stop obsessing about my ultra super mega adorable cuddly friend.   

There is also the high possibility that I have sent you multiple picture/video texts of my furry friend.  

(really what are the chances that you actually read my blog, and are not covered in one of these three categories?)

What some people MIGHT not know is that I have been BEGGING Chase for a puppy, basically since before we were married.  

So why now? Why did Chase make this impulsive decision? How did I persuade him to make an impulsive decision at all? (Chase is not a man of impulse)


Chase is a salesman, and a very good salesman.  I have picked up on a few things here and there, and finally figured out how to sell Chase on the idea of a puppy.  

Here is what I realized

I needed to appeal heavily to Chases emotions.

His logical side would always find a creative way of saying H-E double hockey sticks NO.
So, last week when a little girl in nursery looked up at Chase and sweetly told him 
"I love you very much" 
I knew the iron was hot and that I had to act quickly. 

that afternoon we had our friends Mike & Kelsie over for dinner and we all ended up looking at pictures of dogs online.  This quickly turned in to looking at pictures of dogs on craigslist which by the end of the night turned in to going to look at puppies.  

Once I had him holding a puppy there was no turning back. 

And that is how Bob Hope came to be a part of our family.

Do you know what a Nigglywiggly is?

Last night I realized that my journal entries (the one that's a paper/pencil situation) have become shorter and shorter.   I also realized, over time, I have started blogging less and less.  oops? 

So here is a quick catch up:)

  • Chase has turned into a master of getting in bed without waking me up!!!:)  If by chance he does wake me up, I am told that I not only become angry, convinced he has some diabolical plan meant to keep me awake and miserable, but that I regularly quote Harry Potter as well. 
  • In Relief Society we played two truths and a lie as a warm up.  No one was able to guess my lie! (is that something to be proud of?)  Can you figure it out?
  1. I am double jointed in my pits (as in arm pits).
  2. I can say the ABC's backwards.
  3. I can do a double back flip on a trampoline.                                  

  • I planted a garden!!!!!!!....!!!!!!!!! This is basically a dream come true for me.  Sometimes while I am daydreaming that the ocean is right outside our apartment, I daydream about my huge garden too. For now my garden is in planters on our deck.  BUT, someday I will have my very own yard to turn into one. 

  • I have a brand spanking new Nephew!!!! his name is Samuel.  His big brother N8 calls him Sammie:) I can not wait to meet the little guy. 

  • I have a slackline that I don't get to use NEARLY enough.  Sometimes it makes me miss my little brothers even more fiercely than I already do.

The End. 

p.s.  A Nigglywiggly is the little piece of paper that comes out the top of a Hershey's kiss.
