Introducing Mr. Brinkley-Cooper!

Thought I’d just take a minute to introduce you to the newest member of our family. Brinkley has been with us a couple of months now and literally hit the ground running the night we brought him home. As soon as we put him down, he acted like he had been there forever and even though he was like a shrimp next to his new brothers and sisters, he had no fear … and still doesn’t! He is totally full of himself, and we love it! There is nothing like a new puppy to reinvigorate a house …

Don’t let that innocent look fool you!
He and Max are absolutely best buddies … it’s the sweetest thing EVER! They now even have matching collars.This is from Christmas morning and this is one of his many new toys. The snowman might be cute, but between him and Izzie it lasted less than hour.

Have a great week!

Joining the 21st century …

January 1, 2011

Last weekend Verizon was having an amazing deal on smartphones and since my entire family needed new phones, this was a great excuse for my mom and me to upgrade. Yes, we are now “smart”! I knew the phone I wanted, a Motorola Droid X and I love it! For months, I’ve been scoping out apps to download and which case I would want. Well I got my case (see below) and downloaded my first app which was Twitter, because I do have a weakness for those short little messages – just can’t get enough. It has so been worth the wait and now I am ready to conquer 2011!

I had a great day at a friend’s wedding. It was really a wonderful event, and one of the best weddings I’ve been to. They had the reception at a cozy Italian restaurant – no dancing, just great food and great friends. What a wonderful way to ring in the New Year, and certainly a day they will remember forever!

Wishing you a Happy and Blessed New Year!
