MIA Yet Again...

I know that I haven't posted much lately, but for once, I have a legitimate reason.

Back in September, I lost my amazing dog, Brownie.

She is still missed everyday, and we held off on getting a new dog because we still missed her so much.

At some point, I think we realized that we're always going to miss her and if we waited for some magical time when we didn't to get a new dog, we'd never do it.

So after the holidays, we decided that maybe we would start looking for a dog to adopt. We thought it would take a while to find exactly what we were looking for -- a Lab for sure, preferably a yellow and a boy so we wouldn't make too many unfair comparisons to Brownie.

Well, it all fell into place a lot quicker than we imagined so I'm happy to introduce the newest member of our family, Charlie:

Charlie at 8 weeks
 He is a Lab mix and just about 8 weeks old. He was rescued from a storm drain in South Carolina, where his mom had put him and his siblings to keep warm. We got him from a great organization here in NY, Unleashed (if you're in the NYC-metro area and are looking for a puppy, I'd definitely recommend checking them out. The whole process was terrific and it's such a great cause.), and while he's a sweetheart, I'd forgotten exactly how much work a puppy can be. 

I am seriously exhausted chasing this little guy around.

But it's so much fun that I can't complain in good conscience.

Charlie's still getting comfortable and we're trying to come up some sort of schedule for him, so when things settle down in the next couple of days, I'll be back to blogging regularly.

I've got a review of the Urban Decay Naked3 Palette just about ready to go so keep an eye out for that.

And you know, as I'm writing this, I just realized that today is the blog's 2 year anniversary (!), which is just crazy to me.

But I'll be doing a big giveaway in the next week or so to celebrate that, so there's also that to look forward to.


  1. I don´t even know what to say except for: awww :3
    Charlie sure´s a cutie!

    1. Thanks so much! He is definitely a cutie -- that's why I'm putting up with the fact that he thinks my fingers are chew toys. :P

    2. I think I speak for everyone when I say that that´s a small price for all that cuteness! xD

  2. Oh Jennifer!
    Congrats to your newest family member...Charlie is way too cute! What a face!!!
    Happy 2nd Anniversary!

    1. Thanks so much, Lori! He is a real cutie -- it's probably why I'm so patient with all the biting and chewing and accidents on my carpet. LOL I can't believe it's been two years already for the blog -- I've had such a good time. :)

  3. A big hello to Charlie , a new family member . Charlie is so cute !!!
    Hope and pray everything get settled after charlie is here in your life

    and HAPPY 2ND BLOGIVERSARY Jennifer :)
