11/52: A Year of Little Resolutions

March 21, 2011


This past week was Ginger’s birthday! She celebrated her very first birthday! We had such a fun week together. I really tired that girl out. We went on walks,  runs, and had lots of play time. My plan was to take her to the groomer but apparently she needs a special kind of grooming called hand stripping. It sounds weird but Ginger has a lot of excess hair that is super easy to pull out. Matthew thinks it hurts her when I do it but it’s supposed to be the healthy thing for them, and they can’t even feel it. Terriers, in particular, deal with this a lot and they need their hair stripped out a few times a year. It helps keep them soft and also control the shedding. What could be better?! The groomer has a very busy schedule tending to all these hairy pups so I wasn’t able to get an appointment, but I’m planning on going in the next couple weeks. I guess it worked out because with all this rain, she wouldn’t have been clean for very long! Besides, I think I liked the idea of Ginger getting a bath and haircut a little more than she did!
 such a cute little sleeper!
For this next week I’m going to try to journal every night. I’ve had so much on my mind recently, as well as a lot of unnecessary wedding stress {which I’ll talk about on Wednesday}. I think journaling will help me relax a little bit, and put things in perspective. I used to write in a diary every single day for years, especially while I was in school. It was one of those things I looked forward to everyday.  So I’m kind of excited about this little resolution. I hope it sticks!
I hope you all had a great weekend! Want to see something funny? My best friend Lizzie sent this to me saying, “Omg it’s you and Matthew!!” I think it’s absolutely hilarious because it looks so much like Matthew especially. What do you guys think? {see what the heck I’m talking about here}
Happy Monday!
