Gunner

Today, my husband and I adopted a new puppy…meet Gunner!
We actually went out looking to adopt a kitten, but when we saw him in the shelter, we knew it was meant to be.
I’m not exactly what you would call a “dog person” – I prefer the company of cats, but I do love all pets. I’m not a huge fan of dogs who jump on you or who lick you, so when we were walking through the shelter to get to the cat room and among all these dogs who were jumping in their cages and barking loudly and saw this little guy, we had to stop and take a second look. He was sitting quietly, slightly shaking, and not making a peep. We looked at his paperwork and I noticed that it said “no licks, but loves to hug!” and I jokingly said that he would be the perfect dog for me. We talked to him for a few minutes then moved on. After we looked through the cat room we went back over to this puppy. We waited for a volunteer to come over to assist us in taking him out, and while we waited, I noticed there was a leash and collar hooked to the outside of his cage. I went over and turned over the tag on the collar and noticed that it said “Gunnar”… the name my husband has always wanted to name a dog if we got one. I pointed this out to him and we knew this dog was meant to be. Long story short, we took him out and played with him for a bit, and within an hour, he was in our car ready to go home with us. We did change the spelling of his name to Gunner with an e rather than an a, and so far he seems to be enjoying his new home!

1000 Days!

Today marks 1,000 days in a row that I have taken a picture a day- I still can’t believe it!
I had this epic picture in mind for day 1,000, but we’ve had nothing but rain for a week and the weather isn’t cooperating. But, as a surprise my husband brought me home this shirt I had my eye on as a way of congratulating me on day 1000.

Random Lowes Purchases

It may not seem like a lot to most, but since moving into an apartment 3 months ago, I’ve had to carry my metal stamping supplies down to the parking lot every time I got an etsy order. This was starting to get old, not to mention the weather is starting to get bad, so today, I went to Lowes and bought a single cinderblock to do my stamping on. I think I got stopped three times by employees who probably all wondered why a girl was walking through the store with a single cinderblock. Gotta make them wonder, right?
