So we are finally coming out of the fog after our turn of events last week. A lot of time has been focused on our sweet Carter. He is such a good dog, but was so dependent on his big brother Pudge, so we have been giving him lots of extra special attention. Poor pup. My heart just breaks for him to lose his best friend because we know how hard it is.
Pudge also was his motivator. Forget treats, if we wanted Carter to do anything, we would just get Pudge to do something and he would follow. This has made going on a walk tricky as Carter isn’t interested. Tonight my mom is bringing her Golden Retriever over, so we are hoping he will actually leave the house and go on a walk. (Here’s hoping.)
To help ease the pain, I have been partaking in retail therapy. Because that’s always effective for at least a 5 minute pick me up, right? But it is fun to buy something for the new baby (and baby’s mama), so I got me a diaper bag in Pudge’s colors at the Kate Spade one day sale. (How do you like that for rationalization?) I am hoping I like it once it comes in!
Also, we are still, of course, thrilled about baby, and I wanted to show you the cute way (if I do say so myself) that I told my coworkers that the baby was going to be a girl.
The night before the big day we went to Walmart and I bought some tiny boxes, ribbon and pink and blue candy.
I put all the boxes together the night before and then before I went into the office, filled the boxes with pink whoppers!
I had also bought some blue York Pieces for my something blue. Just a hint…it is hard to find pink or blue candy at the store, this is the best I could do.
I made all of the little labels myself and thought they turned out cute. It was fun to get everyone’s reaction as they opened them.
Anyway, I did want to thank you all for your sweet comments, tweets, texts and cards last week. I do appreciate each of them.
