Puppy Pate

Puppy Pate is home!! So far he's been living inside cause he can still slip through the gate in the back and can't be trusted outside by himself. He's now 10 weeks old and is a giant! He's going to be big! He's doing really well, he can sit, come, respond to his name, heal (kind of) and hasn't had that many accidents inside. He's house breaking nicely. Now if we can just keep him from chewing on everything!!

He's gone to the lakehouse with Kris for the weekend, which is nice cause I can actually get things done around the house without worrying about him eating something. He keeps falling in the lake so we had to get him a puppy life vest, it's so funny to see him wearing it.

He also got a visit from Santa, Mrs. Claus, the Elf and the Grinch. He didn't seem too excited about the visit until he discovered the eating the Elf's shoes were quite fun!

While I was traveling, Kris and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary on October 20th! It's been so amazing to be married to such an awesome, Godly man for 2 years! He's such a great husband (especially to put up with me being out of town for our anniversary). I love you Pumpkin!!
Even though I was out of town for our anniversary we still managed to get each other gifts (which is my love language, so Kris has learned to become very good at giving gifts).
I got him a remote control airplane. It's so cool, it can do anything a real airplane can do. Kris has become very skilled at flying it. I flew it for about 20 seconds and almost crashed it, but Kris learned to fly it and take off on land and water and hasn't had any major crashes...he's amazing at it!

And as my present, Kris got me a puppy!!! PUPPY PATE, we've been waiting a while for the breeder we picked to have puppies and they finally did, on our anniversary! Puppy Pate came home on Dec. 13th! He's a white lab.

Happy Anniversary Pumps - I love you!!

Where have we been...

Yes I know it's been forever since I've updated the blog (4 months actually)...and I never finished the Europe Trip (I really am going to try to get back to that). So where have I been? Traveling for work! It's been crazy, hectic at work, thus I haven't updated the blog in a while. So where did I go you ask...

For 2 weeks I was in College Station. Whoop! I hadn't ever spent any time in Aggieland, I was quite surprised by the plethora of good restaurants (which is really the most important thing when you're traveling for work). One evening I walked all around campus and checked it out. It definitely made me miss the college days - going to class in pajama pants - so awesome!

While we were there the client took us to a restaurant and gift shop called Maddens in downtown Bryan - it was so awesome, if you ever get the chance stop in there and eat, do it. The food is excellent and the gift shop is so cute, I wanted one of everything!
We also ate at the Chicken Oil Company burger place - the burgers were so delish! And the restaurant was so Texan, I loved it!

After my trip to College Station I headed to Denver City, Texas (no relation to Denver, Colorado). To get to Denver City we flew into Odessa and then drove 3 hours south west - yeah so basically to the middle of no where...we staying in Hobbs, New Mexico, which was about an hour away cause it was the closest town with a new hotel and restaurants. We audited a power was so interesting to learn about how electricity is generated!

The sky in West Texas is so beautiful - it's so flat you can see the storms rolling in!

From West Texas I traveled to Galveston to audit Moody Gardens. Moody is always a lot of fun at Christmas. They set up the Festival of Lights which is 1 mile of lights that you walk through, it's really beautiful. It was much nicer being on Galveston Island in Nov/Dec of this year verses last year right after the hurricane.

So what has Kris been doing while I've been out of town all this time. He's been keeping busy working and dealing with estate stuff (particularly the lake house)...more to come on that later...
