{Puppy Love}

We're getting a puppy!!! We still need to find him and can't get him anyway until we get back from Europe, but yay! Scott has now sworn eternal love and devotion to me (as opposed to previously just liking me a lot). We will be getting a Golden Retriever! For those of you who know Scott this wont be a surprise. I was told long ago that the only dogs Scott would consider to have as a pet would be a Lab, Retriever or German Shepherd and it had to be a male, oh and a pure bred. Yes, I am married to a dog snob, but it is his present after all. This will be a brand new adventure for me since I have never, ever had a pet.

Also, for those of you who don't know we are going to Italy this month!! Exciting times. Our travel plans include Florence, Venice, Sienna and Cinque Terre. We are eating copious amounts of pasta to prepare and I'm practicing my 3 Italian phrases,

I don't care about you
I'll make you bleed
Don't touch me

I can only say them, not spell them. If I was to attempt to spell them it would look something like "non mene freggete". I like to string them together for dramatic effect. Scott gets the credit for choosing these 3, very helpful sentences.

P.S. Excuse the multiple exclamation points. This was a very exciting post and I couldn't help myself.

I can't believe it's time for your Europe trip! Did you end up getting a new camera?

I love scout, but I almost think that should be saved for a future child's middle name. I think Scout would be a great girl name. I am so happy you are getting a puppy, Cooper will be so happy.

Lindsey! I hope this isn't super creepy, but I already confessed I was a bonafide blog stalker! Actually, as I was browsing through various blogs, I stumbled upon yours, and my first thought was, "This person has a great header!" And then I took a closer look and much to my delight, I realized, "Hey! It's Lindsey!"
So anyway, here I am saying hi!
