Puppies, Storage Wars and Finding a Wedding Band

This weekend, our friends Tony & Abigail got a new puppy! Her name is Emma and she is an itty bitty Yorkie! She is so precious and just loves to snuggle. But she’s very protective of Tony & Abigail already. Oreo didn’t understand this at all because he and Tony have always been best buds.Β Emma would snap at Oreo any time he tried to get too close to Tony or Abigail. Poor Oars didn’t quite know what to do about it. He finally gave up and ended up sleeping at Tony’s feet.

Notice how protective Emma is of them? And poor Oreo finally just sleeping on Tony’s feet, haha!

So even though, Oreo got told off by Emma, he DID have a great weekend since he got to go to the dog park with his buddies, Jobin and Penny! The three of them are super precious together. They love to wrestle and play fight and it makes me happy to see Oreo so happy. Plus we love Jobin and Penny’s “parents,” Courtney & Jacob and Hannah & Wes!

Anyone ever see Storage Wars? Well, we went to a real live storage unit auction this morning! The local news was even there!

We went with our friends, Jonathan & Whitney (and their baby!), but we didn’t bid on anything. However, we heard that there would be another auction in February and the boys are wanting to go again and maybe actually bid next time.

So… then… this afternoon… Christopher lost his wedding band. I’ll be honest, I really wasn’t upset. I think it’s simply because he was so worried about it and one of us had to be the calm one, haha! He had been raking leaves so he had a general idea of where it might be so we started sorting through a bag of leaves… in our garage (because it was so windy outside). We were going through it handful by handful until I had the brilliant idea of using my hair dryer to blow the leaves aside and hope the wedding band would fall out. It was a brilliant plan! I say that because it worked! πŸ™‚

See me holding the hair dryer upside down to blow the leaves while Christopher drops them? We are so ingenious, haha! It only took us half an hour to find it!

Aaaaand… we may or may not have video of us finding it……. yes, we are that dorky, haha! Don’t worry, it’s only 12 seconds long – I edited out the boring parts. πŸ™‚

  25. I love Storage Wars! My husband lost his wedding ring last year and it turned up 2 months later in the lawn in the back yard. We thought it was a piece of the hose nozzle that broke in the grass but it was his ring! It fell off one night when he was taking the garbage out. SO happy he found it and glad you guys found yours!

  26. I totally was expecting jumping up and down and screeching when you found it, but the high five is nicely understated. πŸ˜€ Brilliant idea!
