Fridays With Ellie: One Month In West New York

This week has felt very, very long. Nothing remarkable came my way, just the usual work work work work work (TM Rihanna) and lots of writing with some conference calls and events thrown in. I don’t know why I’m so tired lately. Brian says it’s allergies. I say it’s because I’ve been eating too much sugar. […]

Adopt Don’t Shop

Today’s post is a little different than usual, if I have a usual. But I wanted to write about a topic I have become increasingly passionate about over the past few months.  I have made it no secret that adopting Ellie was the best thing Brian and I have ever done. The love I have for this little […]

Fridays With Ellie: The Happiest Puppy Around

This has been a week, I’ll tell ya. Everything is fine and dandy and jazz hand-y, it’s just been a bit busy and a lot stressful. (Telltale signs of stress, no matter how much I try to deny it and claim I’m just so totes excitingly busy: My sexy scalp psoriasis is flaring in a major […]

Jersey Girls!

It’s been a week since Brian, Ellie, and I moved to West New York, New Jersey, and I don’t remember a time all three of us have simultaneously been quite so smiley. I guess the wedding. And the honeymoon. And the day we brought Ellie home. And the time I found out Celine Dion was […]

Fridays With Ellie: Spay Day

We brought Ellie in to get spayed this morning. I’M FINE. I cried when they took her away from me and led her back into the procedure room, and then I did what I do best: walked across the street and ate a Nutella crepe. (I walked up to the counter and ordered “the usual,” […]

What I’ve Been Up To Lately (Spoiler: Packing!)

Hello! Do you remember me?! A few weeks ago, I ran into some big-time blog issues. Turns out, for the past six years, I haven’t been properly resizing my photos, and I basically blew up my server. My blog is now the size of the entire NSA archives. It’s still a work in progress (one […]

Fridays With Ellie: All Puppy Pictures, All The Time

No words today, just puppy pictures. OK, maybe a few words. Happy latest edition of “Fridays With Ellie!” It’s been a mighty long week, but we’ve just about made it to the weekend. Hooray! Mine will include a run at some point, a trip to the dog park, and a much-needed massage (I checked and apparently […]

Fridays With Ellie

It’s been a long, crazy week around here. Last Saturday, our sweet little puppy hopped her front paws onto our [way too low] coffee table, where a [full] glass of water was conveniently situated next to my [open and on] laptop. That’s the short story of how my sweet, once reliable 2010 Macbook Pro died an instantaneous, […]

A Very Ellie Update

Well…this was bound to happen. This may as well be Ellie On The Run at this point. But since I take 600 photos of Ellie a day and exercise serious restraint by only posting one or two per day, I thought, “Hey, why not share a bunch here for the two people who are just dying […]

Planning A Puppy Graduation Party (And Other Life-Changing Plans & Goals)

At the end of puppy class on Sunday, our teacher said, “Bring something kind of weird or different to wear for the next class.” I immediately perked up. We have just the thing for Ellie to wear! Upon further clarification, apparently the “weird thing to wear” is for the humans, not the dogs, so they can […]
