ralphy and other updates.

here are a few more pictures of our little ralphy. we are adjusting to lots of trips up and down 4 flights of stairs for potty trips and early mornings...but he is totally worth it.
overall, he is a great pup :)

here are a few other pictures. i was cancelled the friday before Easter so we had the chance to color eggs (it was Good Friday, so school was cancelled, too). wilbur (aka the Easter Bunny) also came to visit our house this year. we had my brother and his family over for dinner and it turned out great!

i also finished the nightstands that i started re-doing prior to the wedding. they turned out super cute.
(before---got them for 20$/piece at the best thrift store in town)

(after-- not too shabby)

a new addition...

say hello to ralphy :)
we both love dogs and have wanted one since before we got married. for some reason last night, i just decided it was time and could hardly sleep. i woke up this morning and the first thing i did when i rolled over was asked gregory if we could go get a dog today. well, a puppy would be a little hard for our schedules, as well as our living situation...and we both have always wanted to rescue. to the shelter we went.

operation kindness is this great no-kill shelter in carrollton, tx and we adopted our first kiddo from there. we both really loved it there and wanted to take everyone home. even though we couldn't, they are in great hands there. there were so many cuties, but little ralph stole my heart. i think greg knew the game was over when i wouldn't leave his side. i was afraid someone else was going to want him. he is a 3 year old schnauzer/schnoodle (we think and were told). he is a total cutie. he loves to cuddle but still has some playful puppy in him. he isn't house-broken yet so mom and dad are learning to train. any tips would be great :)
we love our ralphy and are so happy to have him in our family/home
