Anyway, a couple weeks ago our landlords who live above us had this puppy on their back porch always. I thought they might be babysitting it or something and I loved it! One day I was leaving to go pick Brady up from work and I stopped to play with the puppy. Sherri, our landlord, came out and told me it was theirs. She is a 9 week old Akita and I'm literally obsessed. Brady and I both are! Her name is Suki, but I just like to call her puppy haha. Basically I play with her every day when I get home.
It's great because we get the perks of having a dog, but don't have to do anything for it! Sweet. She is already getting bigger. Oh ya, she is going to be medium sized. So Brady is happy that she won't be a tiny dog and I am happy because I just need a friend sometimes during the day. I love her!
I thought about taking pictures, but I just didn't want to. It's like the time we spent down there was so simple and sweet, I didn't want to ruin it's "naturalness" by taking a photo. Does that make any sense? I mean I could've taken a picture of all us girls hanging out by the pool every day, but then it becomes a staged or posed event. And I didn't want that. I didn't want to take a picture of any of it because I wanted it to feel like it was normal for Brady and I to be there. Normal for us to go to the movies, lay out by the heated pool, watch BYU games with the fam, go bowling and out to breakfast. I am happy I don't regret my decision of subconsciously not taking pictures.
On another note, I love how the sun is starting to set at like 7:40 now. It's starting to feel like warmer weather is on it's way and its great!! All the kids in our neighborhood are out on the streets playing with each other till 9 at night. It's the best! I don't even know them, but I smile and wave at them just to show my support for them playing outside.
Also, graduation is coming. Slowly, but surely, it is coming. Lauren and I have a thing that if you say "Before you know it _________________ will be here" then it comes faster. Somethings I will not say, because I don't want it to come fast haha. Others, I say all the time. If you know of any full time jobs out there, let me know.

So next week is Spring Break and I am so excited!! We are driving down to Arizona on Tuesday night to hang out with my family. I am looking forward to 80 degree weather for sure. My parents are going to heat the pool and we will just have the best time going to dinner, watching movies, playing games, laying out, staying up late and sleeping in. I can't wait! It seems like forever ago that it was warm outside or summer for that matter. Probably because I never did anything outside or summer-like in Texas. This summer, its going to be different!

And it's not stopping. We've probably already recieved 6-7 inches. Seriously. This is why I am wearing my velor sweat suit and uggs at school right now.
I normally never wear sweats to school, but this is a protest. Like 10 minutes after I got to school I regretted wearing my sweat suit because I feel like a slob. But still, I am protesting this snow!!!!

So remember my last post? How I was going to make my own wreath? I did everything I said I was going to.
I event went to TJ Maxx AND Ross. Now I am depressed. Everything is crap!
I went to JoAnn's and Michaels and I just stared at the flowers and the foam wreath bases. I don't know what to do. I wish we had a Hobby Lobby here. Lame.
I think tomorrow I will trek my way up to Salt Lake to go to TJ Maxx Home Goods store. They better have something.
The only reason why this is so important to me is because our door decor is the only holiday/seasonal decor I ever sport (with an exception of our baby Christmas tree).
Anyway, wish me luck for tomorrow!
I went to JoAnne's and everything they had was ugly.
I went to Tai Pan and everything they had was cute. It was also average $50 a wreath. No thanks.
I want to go to TJ Maxx Home Goods store (my favorite store ever) but it is in Salt Lake.
Maybe I will go to the normal TJ Maxx, but sometimes that place drives me crazy (if you know what I mean).
So pretty much I am going to be crafty because I love it and make my own wreath. I will post a pic when I am finished!

Back roads of London. Going swimming in a pond. Look at the trees!
(Hyde Park in London on the most amazing spring day)
I love spring. Especially this spring. Turning 22. Graduating college. 1-year anniversary with Brady! Also, looking at a calendar, March seems a lot closer to graduation than February did and that makes me happy. Happy March 1!
