Since moving to Utah I feel a need to support our local celebrities such as the Osmonds. And let me tell you, Donny would not be happy with all the comments you left yesterday. Where was the Puppy Love? There was none I say, none. I can't believe you're all puppy haters.
Okay, okay. So I've been very vocally a non dog/non animal person my whole life. So I suppose I can imagine your surprise when I said I wanted a puppy. It's surprising to me too. But my in-laws recently got two new puppies and I have found myself falling for these little pups and dreaming of having one of my own. I woke to my senses though and decided it's really not practical for us yet. We have no backyard, no fence, and we like to travel. Plus I don't even know where to start with a dog, and so I would probably just be raising a neighborhood nuisance. What I think it really boils down to is the fact that I'm a wee bit baby hungry and the little puppies somehow bring out my maternal instincts. I'd probably be one of those strange people who dressed up their dog in baby clothes and took it around in a baby carrier, and I might even ask that they announce the birth of my dog in sacrament meeting right along with the new babies who seem to pop up here every week. Just kidding. That could get uncomfortable for some people. So I'm all about comfort for everyone, including you the commentors, and so for now we'll drop the puppy subject.
But speaking of local celebrities, we had a little paparazzi here in our home this morning. Hallie has been begging me(I'm talking real tears here) for a new pair of sunglasses lately. So after a recent trip to the store we compromised and picked out a pair of iCarly sunglasses that we could both agree were cute. She's pretty much been wearing them ever since. I had to laugh when a sleepyhead Hallie came down the stairs first thing this morning with the sunglasses on. She had asked me if she could sleep in them last night, I said no, but now I'm not entirely sure I was obeyed on that one. She didn't seem to like the flash of the camera, so these were the unflattering photos we got. But funny still the same.
Just to balance out Hallie's photo chi I'll show some cute pictures we took yesterday before preschool. Now you can return to your day, and go about your business feeling safe and secure in the fact that I will not be getting a new puppy for Mother's Day. But know that I will enjoy my new iPhone. Maybe it was just a clever ploy after all...
