I love cooking blogs/websites, and I love free stuff. Click HERE for the best of both worlds. JAC has awesome recipes which are perfect for someone like me who really needs some variety in the dinner schedule since I seem to find myself cooking the same things over and over again. I love these personalized plates and potholders they're giving away ... I just hope I win!!
Two Saturdays ago I had the wonderful opportunity to see Phantom of the Opera at the "Fabulous Fox Theatre" with my sweet mother-in-law Susie. Here we are right after Killer met her grandma and right before we left for the show.
We had so much fun, and I'm so glad Brad didn't want to go so I was able to spend some quality time with my new momma.
On another note, Killer is 2 months old today but is still just as tiny as ever. Since I'm going to be starting work soon we're trying to get her used to staying at home by herself for a few hours everyday. So I perused CraigsList and found this awesome baby gate for our kitchen, where we had planned on leaving her. Before we found the gate we just put her in our spare bathroom whenever we had to leave. It's fine for a little bit, but it's not that big. In the kitchen she could run around and play to entertain herself while we're not home. The only problem is that the gate doesn't quite contain her. Take a look (don't forget to pause the music on the playlist):
That opening where she's squeezing through is 2 inches! I'm really hoping she starts growing fast so we can start leaving her in there without worrying she'll get out.
Brad's dream has always been to name his dog Killer, so we did it. Her name does not at all fit her appearance or personality. She's the sweetest thing you've ever seen. She's a Chihuahua, Cocker Spaniel mix and probably doesn't weigh more than 2 or 3 pounds right now. It'll be exciting to see how big she grows up to be.
This is her first bath. She did so well. No crying at all. We also took her swimming over the weekend (no pictures, unfortunately) and she loved it.
Brad and I went to my parents' house for the 4th and on Saturday morning we went to a parade where I got red, white, and blue mardi gras beads. I gave them to Killer so she could be patriotic.
Isn't she just too cute?! She's only 6 weeks old so she sleeps a lot, but she loves to play when she wakes up from her naps.
