Happy Anniversary and our Newest Addition, James

It’s my wife and I’s 1st wedding anniversary. Since she reads this blog sporadically (mainly to catch any mention of her), I wanted to thank her for putting up with me as a husband for 365 days in a row. Thankfully, we haven’t had any real arguments about money. I think our main area of conflict is that I’m a messy slob. I thought she knew that going in ;P

My gift to her – James, an 8 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel:

Yes, he’s already pretty comfortable around the house, especially on the couch. We got him from the pound, and I think he has “kennel cough“, the doggie equivalent of a cold, even though he’s already been vaccinated for it. I won’t go into the costs of owning a dog, at least for now. We just got done buying all sorts of puppy paraphernalia – leashes, food, treats, flea shampoos, chew toys, beds… Gotta go buy some Febreeze now. Oh, and one of those lint rollers. Hair everywhere!


  1. Cute! Good luck trying to keep up with the blog with a dog biting your ankles.

    No comments on the annual cost of keeping a pet? Food, vets, toys, damage… it adds up.

  3. I know, I probably will, but for now I’m trying to keep it romantic!!! 😉

  4. What a cutie!
