Griffin and Olivia have an announcement---

On Tuesday of last week, Nate told me that on Friday, I needed to be ready by 4pm with an overnight bag packed. I said, "wait, overnight? I need to call my mom to have her come stay with the dogs!"

He told me he'd already taken care of it.

I asked if "taken care of" meant that he was planning on leaving a big pile of food in the living room, telling Olivia to be in charge, or if he'd called my mother. He told me he thought Liv could handle it.

I called my mom and asked her what she was doing Friday. She said, "nothing."

I asked if that meant nothing at my house and then explained the situation. She agreed that Olivia would definitely rise to the occasion.

Despite everyone's confidence in my darling bulldog, Nate had already arranged for my mom to stay and he surprised me with a stay at an amazing B&B, fabulous dinner and a romantic proposal. 

We're getting married!

Noisy Dogs!

Do all dogs make as much noise as my dogs do? Is it a bulldog thing? Sometimes I feel like I am living with mini zoo animals.

This video is of Griffin hanging out in my office. 

On Thursday of last week, the bullies and I went to camp for a few days. The minute I brought the cooler out of the basement, it was OVER. Olivia was barking and whining and wouldn't let me out of her sight. She was SO excited to go to camp. She was driving me INSANE.

A few cute photos from the weekend-

Last night, I was sitting on a chair in my room, watching
a show on my computer. Griffin cried until we traded. He was happy
once he had the chair and I was on the floor...

Snuggling Sunday

It's a cold rainy Sunday and we're being lazy. The four of us are spending the day snuggling on the couch. Nate and I have just started watching Breaking Bad on Netflix and we're hooked. There's nothing better than a lazy day wearing sweatpants, snuggled under a blanket on our new (super comfy) couch. We've got two fat bulldogs to keep us warm and life is good.

The new ottoman is very big, which is perfect for all of us...

Olivia is tired and looks annoyed that we woke her up.
Grif is also tired.... 
Guess who woke up and decided that we should be done watching....
