Puppy Love

  
I have to say…I love Pearl for her relentless efforts. Lola IS going to love her if she has anything to do with it. 

Persistence is the name of the game, folks. The sisters shared a room last night (Pearl in her kennel) and the crying was at a minimum. 

So…sorry to move the big dog out but whatever gets us all a night without incessant whining is what we’re all looking for.

Bonus: we didn’t have to wash Pearl’s bed this morning because: no accidents. I hate to brag, but I think we have a genius on our hands.

Watch me eat those words tomorrow.

Pearl Day: The Ultimate in Friday Fun!

IMG_5624Happy Pearl Day to you! What’s more fun on a Friday than getting a puppy???  I think the answer to that is nothing. It’s way better than shopping because clothes don’t love you back.  Nice handbags and shoes, maybe, but not clothes.

So today we finally go and pick up that little ball of fur we’ve been talking about for what seems like forever.  Truly though, as my sister put it, this has been the longest anticipation ever.

It’s reminiscent of the scene from Austin Powers where the guard is screaming because he’s about to be rolled by a steam roller…that is going so super slow and not actually about to hit him.

That’s what this wait has been like. And it’s likely that tomorrow we’re going to actually feel as though we’ve been rolled by a steam roller.

But then you look at this face and forget about it all, right?  Maybe?

One thing I do know is that the days of leaving my shoes around the house are up. As are Lola’s days of being totally undisturbed.  I also know that we have invested in baby gates that look awfully funny when people come over and there has been no puppy or baby there. So I guess what I’m saying is, we’re ready to have Pearl home.

Stayed tuned for more adventures of Pearl and Lola in what is sure to be an interesting new twist of fate at the Schulze household.

And just in case you’re looking for something fun to shop for this fine Friday:

tory bagI’m dying over this bag. There is a whole new line of these to obsess over. Check them out here.

Also, JCrew Factory is having a sale…and if you’re not familiar with the Factory clothes, well, get there.  They’re essentially JCrew from a few years ago before they got so super proud of themselves (as told by their prices).

And finally…Calypso St. Barth has an additional 30% off their sale prices–up to 60% off total. Which makes their clothes semi-affordable and able to join the ranks of your closet.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go buy puppy chow.  Because that’s my hot fall item this year.
