Pugs, Babies and Snow – Oh My!

Hey Folks!

So, one thing I didn’t mention in my first February post is that….welp…I’m pregnant!  We were still waiting to tell family, so I was keeping it a secret.  I am currently 14 weeks – and in my 2nd Trimester!  Woot woot.  Our due date is August 18th.  I apologize in advance if this blog becomes kind of prego-centric for the next 6 months…but thems da breaks!

Baby Announcement

The first several months were no bueno.  I felt nauseous pretty much every day and NOTHING sounded good to eat.  Lately, it has been so much better.  This all explains why my holidays were extra intense!  I was tired and feeling gross. :(  Plus, no holiday beverages for me.  LAME.  This also explains why we decided to get another pug – I blame Ryan for this idea mostly.  He was worried that Willy would get lonely after we introduced a baby in the family, so he wanted him to have a playmate.  Overall, I am glad we got Felix, but man!  I really want to move into a bigger place now, preferable with some sort of a backyard so I don’t have to walk both dogs twice a day.  I like the exercise, but I know further down the road it’s going to get extra tough. Our lease is up in June of this year, so we have already started looking elsewhere for other options.

So, that’s where I am at folks.

In other news – it SNOWED today here in Tucson.  What?  Yes.  First time I have seen this much snow in Southern Arizona in years!  Pretty cool stuff.  I went out and took pictures.  Sorry bout the quality – iphonez.

Snow 2.20

Anywho!  That’s the update for now – more interesting posts to come – maybe even a baby bump in a few weeks. :)


What the what? First post in 2013!

Hello all,

So, first off – I apologize for not posting since September…eek.  There has been a lot going on in my life – travelling, new dogs, holidays…you know…the usual shananigans.  I also was hoping to get a better video camera for Christmas…but no dice.  Sigh.  Welp, looks like pictures will be my main mode of media for now folks.

The biggest change has probably been our new dog. He is so cute and crazy. So, without further adieu, I give you Felix, our new dog!

Willy is on the left and Felix is on the right.  I love my pugs.

We decided to get another pug to give Willy someone to hang out with.  We adopted him from the same rescue place where we got Willy – Arizona Pug Adoption Rescue Network – Boy did we get more than we bargained for! They wrestle around all day and sometimes I have to put one or both in crates in order to get some peace and quiet.  I wish we had a backyard they could run around in.  Someday.

Anywho…yeah.  What else?  Well, for the most part I am in a post holiday fog still – I know it’s been a month, but man…this holiday season was cray cray.  We must have driven to our families places (about 2 hours away) every weekend in the month of December.  Talk about draining.  Don’t get me wrong, we loved seeing our families and such, but it certainly takes it’s toll.  My husband has been working very long hours since – averaging about 80 hours a week.

In other news – I have been watching the following shows, and I would recommend them to everyone!

Japanese Anime – “Space Brothers” – this show is so funny. Bonus! It has a pug in it named Apo. My husband and I watch this on our Roku via Crunchyroll. (I do not own this image)

나도, 꽃! (Me Too, Flower !) –  Korean Drama. I love k-dramas, and this one is no exception. If you have not ventured forth into the asian dramas, then you have not lived. (I do not own this image)

I love this show so much. I haven’t completed it yet – but there are 3 seasons so far. British drama at it’s finest. (I do not own this image)

Alright folks. That about rounds up my February 1st post. More to come, I promise! Let me know what categories you would like to hear more about!
