Weekend Update

Hayden threw open the garage door this afternoon, yelling at the top of his lungs, "Say HELLL-OOO to Mango!"

That's what we decided to name her. Mango. Even more fun to say with a Jamaican accent.

A cross between a Scottish Terrier and ???, one year old, and no bigger than...

The best part is that she isn't a yippy dog. One of those anklebiters. The kind I can't stand.

I take that back. The real best thing is that her and Mesa are getting along beautifully. The bonus is that I've secured my husband's love forever and, as a consequence, forgiveness for going over budget on my latest adventure. The adventure that has lasted a week longer than expected, but is almost finished.

Wanna hint? Because I have to build up the suspense somehow since I'm the only one who's even remotely excited about this project.

Here it is: If you've ever been inside any of the houses that we've lived in, you won't be surprised one bit.


  1. Nope havent met Julia.. we missed eachother by a few days.

  2. Who says you're the only one who's excited? I'm excited. So there.

  5. cauuute doggie! fun for you. more dog poop to clean up! and loved the zoo pics. okay i thought we were the only ones that weren't allowed to say "butt" while growing up! so now when my mom comes we all say it ALOT! are we bad or what?

  6. Hey! I'm new to reading your blog and can I just say that I LERB it! You have a new fan in Virginia. I'll try hard not to be a stalker...laugh.

    Your girl Mango is a cutie and I'm betting she's got some Cairn terrier in her (that's what Toto from "Wizard of Oz" was). They are tres smart, and I'm sure she will bring your family lots of joy.

    Have a fabulous day and I am looking forward to reading your bloggy goodness.
