Precious Puppies...hmmm

After many discussions, Erik and I are now on a puppy prowl. I know are we crazy? We both love love love dogs but I have to admit, it's a bit scary and fun at the same time!

I am trying to push for a non-shedding dog but this is the picture that I get today at work from Eriks lunch hour adventure....I think he's up to something. Don't you! Those are little baby golden retrievers right there...aren't they adorable? Check out Erik's face. It's saying "Come on please????" I think they are adorable and everyone says that they are the best family dog to have and are VERY loyal. But they do shed a lot and Erik calls me today and tells me he is just going to go "look" at them..we all know what that means!
We both understand that owning a dog is a huge commitment and we are so busy right now because, well, we can be! These particular pups are only 3 weeks old and we wouldn't be able to take one home for a month yet so that works out great. I can finish my night classes and have nights free to play and train, although I do know that it takes more than nights but you know what i mean! OH my my my..decisions. We might just be adding to the family this weekend. I really thought the roles were going to be reversed in this whole puppy planning process but Erik is like a little kid in a candy store. I love it!

Tag you're it...

I have been tagged! Thanks Jessica, no seriously this is nice because it gets me blogging...not that I need a reason too! Ok so on to the tag.....I am supposed to share with you all some quirks that I have....I have a ton but I am only going to list 5 for sake of sounding like a weirdo!

1. I am afraid of the dark. It doesn't matter where I am, if the lights are off and I'm by myself, I am not too comfy. I know...pathetic huh? This also goes along with sleeping by myself, when Erik is gone I always keep a light on, do I think that people are going to break into my house and get me or what? Some of you may know this about me all to well!! I know when we have kids I am going to have to overcome this, and most people say that you don't have a choice...but I am such a baby when it comes to this stuff.

2. Apparently I can't do homework for the night without going somewhere other than my house. I have noticed that I can't do homework at home, at all, so I tend to skip my way on over to Barnes & Noble (which is about a mile away from our house..bad) or JP's to do it. This doesn't sound like a bad thing but then I proceed to buy a coffee when I'm there....I have A TON of homework lately (because I can't seem to get done with school) so that equals out to a lot of coffee and alot of money spent on the coffee. This is a quirk that Erik has pointed out to me several times....way too many times too count.

3. I wash my hands alot..which is usually a good thing, but I don't need to wash them this much. I was a waitress for 5 years and I think that is where this need comes from. I always had to wash my hands, gunky food everywhere, not too mention other people's gunky food everywhere, so I constantly washed my hands. It hasn't stopped! I am not OCD or anything, so no one has to worry, but I think I could stand to hold off sometimes. At least my hands are always clean!

4. I can't say the word "frustrated". Kinda wierd I know. It is the f and the r combination that gets me every time. I have to really focus when I am saying please don't ask me to say it, I look wierd.

5. I used to be obsessed with horses! I had a horse blanket, pillow, name it and I had a horse on it. I still really think it would be fun to have one, but it's a ton of work and it costs a lot. Plus I don't think our backyard can fit one, unless I get a mini one and those freak me out a little bit. So you know when little kids ask their parents for a pony? I used to all the time and I never got one. Am I bitter still???

OK so now I tag you (I don't know how to tag, but I will just write it out) judge me!
