We got a puppy!!!

Meet Temperance:


We got her on 11/14 from Craigslist.  Her Birthday is 9/16, the same as mine. She is part Husky part Black Lab mix.

We named her after Temperance Brennan from the TV show Bones.  We call her Tempe for short.

David had a little trouble getting her crate put together.  It was a little too big so we ended up adding a divider.

She is such a little cuddle bug.

She was very good with my niece.

She sleeps in the weirdest positions.

She has met a couple other doggies.  She was a little timid at first but overall did really well with them. (p.s. the St. Bernard is only 6 months old)

Temperance is not allowed upstairs, because that is the Kitties safe spot.  The Kitties aren’t too happy with the puppy, but they are doing ok.  Logan (who is usually the scared one) had exerted his dominance and Temperance leaves him alone.  Kaylee only comes all the way downstairs when Temperance is in her crate or not home.

At first I didn’t want a dog, but David has been begging for one.  I gave in but it was supposed to be his dog, and I was just going to tolerate her.  But that lasted all of zero minutes.  I fell in love with her and now she is definitely both of our puppy. (Though David still has to do all the dirty work)

David proposed!!!

There is a softball tournament every November called “Turkey Bowl” You run the bases backward (go from home to third to second to first) and you get one pitch from your own pitcher.  You either hit it into play or you are out.  The winners get turkeys.  It is a ton of fun and its my favorite tournament of the year.  We took 1st this year and then David proposed at home plate after our team picture!


The first time I ever played in Turkey Bowl was 2013.  That was the day David and I met.


After one of the games in 2013 we were talking about all the couples that had met by playing together on that team.  There were two couples playing that day, plus another couple that wasn’t there.  They decided that David was next and that they needed to find him a girlfriend.  One of the girls turned to me and asked me if I was single. I thought David was super cute but I didn’t want to sound desperate, so I responded “I am single, but not that single” I am normally not quick with comebacks at all, but that one worked out all right.  David took it as a challenge and here we are, four years later, engaged.

David did such a good job picking out the ring.  It is perfect.  And the proposal was perfect too! I was surprised and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!  I love David! He is a really great guy ❤

P.S. He proposed on 11/11 so I am a little late on the post.


Happy Thanksgiving!!

Just a quick post to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope you had a great day with your family and/or friends!

The Boyfriend and I had a great day at his family’s Thanksgiving.  We ate lots of turkey and then played some games.

On the way home we went to Walmart and Target to get in some early Black Friday Shopping.  We spent waaay to much money, but on the plus side, we bought almost nothing for ourselves.

Overall it was a great day!  What did you do today? Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions?
