Lovelies, friends, countrymen... lend me your ears, tails, and snouts!

I have come across the most BRILLIANT of websites: Haute Diggety Dog!  They sell doggie things that are kind of tongue in cheek toys - like "Kate Spayed"doggie toy purses, "Grrrona Beer" dog toys, and "Arfsolute Vodka" dog toys.  I LOVE it!


Ode to a Puppy...

Oh, lovelies... I swore I would never turn into one of those people that talks about their dog all the time, and here I am.  In Dog-Talking-Non-Stop-Mode.

I'm so annoyed with myself... but I secretly love it!

The poor Tall Englishman has heard non-stop "Who's a good girl?!", "Who wants a treat!", and his personal favorite "No, NO!  Crumpet!  No licking mommies ass!" as I clean up the poo on the floor....

Oh, dogs.  I love 'em.  But having one of your own is HARD WORK!  But so rewarding!  Last night she went on her piddle pad and I nearly cried I was so proud!  She's been pretty good at learning how to pee & poop on the pad - but she can't quite figure out that we go poop and pee outside.  Hopefully my mom's dog Marley will teach her how to poop an pee outside when we go to my parents house in Cake Eater, MN tomorrow....

Her first airplane ride.  I'm a little nervous, but also very excited to bring her home!  Here she was in her raincoat...  We couldn't get her fur wet for 2 days, as she had her frontline flea & tick medicine on her neck!

Here's hoping she doesn't howl all the time on the airplane!  Or poo.  Or yack... I have a feeling I might be cleaning up some puppy puke on the plane...

Long Time No Blog...

Well, lovelies... several things have happened in the past 2 months:

- I finished up my second show at the Pole of Totems Playhouse - loads of fun!

- Celebrated my 29th Birthday in 80's awesome style with loads of good friends at the bowling alley in Totem Pole, PA.  And the Tall Englishman and my awesome friend Linds-a-lou were both there...  I loved it!

- Moved in with the Tall Englishman in Battery Park City - it's domestic bliss! I love LOVE it!

- Have gone to a handful of auditions - and felt pretty good about 80% of them!

- Went to a Gender Bender musical theatre class - where you sing a song that's usually sung by the opposite sex in a musical!  It was AWESOME - I sang "Lost in the Wilderness" from Children of Eden.  And if I do say so myself - I ROCKED IT OUT!

- Scheduled LOADS of appointments when the Tall Englishman and I are home in Cake Eater, MN.  Mainly of the wedding variety.  Cake tastings, catering tastings, venue viewing, and most importantly - we are going to the Minnesota State Fair!!! (YUM - insert salivating Homer Simpson noise here...)

- Saw 3 Shows: Promises Promises (fun & plucky!), Addams Family (dark and funny), and the brilliant play "On the Levee" about the floods of 1927 in Grenville, Mississippi.

 It was moving and historically accurate - and overall one of the best plays I've ever seen.

OH- then there was ENGLAND!   That's a whole other blog post...

And last but not least... we got a dog!  Lovelies, meet Crumpet, the Puggle!

We Moved In!!!

Lovelies, the Tall Englishman and I have moved in together!

Or rather I moved into his spacious one bedroom in Battery Park City!  We have a beautiful view of the Hudson River and we can walk out our back door and see the Statue of Liberty!  We have been on several long walks on the riverfront of Battery Park...

We moved all of my boxes from Actoria, Queens the day that I came back for the Pole of Totems Playhouse.  The Tall Englishman was such a sport!  He carried boxes.  He rented the truck.  He sweated and put loads of effort into helping me with my moving process - and all the while he had a big smile on his face!

There have been some growing pains... I don't like all my furniture to match like the Tall Englishman does - I think having different compilementary items adds personality.  I think we should go on Designing for the Sexes on HGTV.  Now THAT would be fun!

I love knowing that I'm going to get home and be with him and knowing that I get to wake up next to him.  He's so good to me.  I'm so lucky that I get to have a lifetime of this!
