My cousin Kristie is always saying whenever she wants another baby, her husband should just buy her another puppy.
Ramses when Kristie first got him as a birthday surprise
This weekend, I completely understood what she meant.
none of this was goin’ on on saturday morning.
On Friday night, after a girls night and a visit with our lovely friend Meghan, Chloe and I hit the hay around 2 a.m.

new fave playmate
Since she needs to be let outside to go potty at least every 5 hours, I was up at 6:45 a.m. to let her out. After that, my sleep was replaced with yelping until I fed her at 7:30.
After a quick meal and another trip outside, I brought her back to bed with me. Thankfully, she was happy watching TV in bed until around 9 a.m.
Helloo, life of being a mama.
The weekend went by in a blur, and I wrapped it up with a day of wine glass orders, Criminal Minds, and some zero calorie soup my mama made for me!
Natalie’s order in progress.. an animal print base!
And the soup. It’s so, so good… but pretty heavy on the onion and garlic. Keep the mouthwash handy if you’re gonna dig into this stuff!
