happies and crappies

Coronado Beach California
{Girls trip to San Diego in January. You can see more of my trip here!}

I wanted to link up with The Vintage Modern Wife last week but we were busy in San Francisco, going on taco crawls in the Mission. I never thought I’d enjoy taco crawls more than day-time bar crawls, but I do. Probably because tacos don’t give you a killer hangover the next day — they just make your jeans tight {solution: sweatpants, yoga pants, stretchy stuff in general}. Without further ado, I give you my Happies and Crappies from the past couple of weeks.
The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Up
– I won a $100 Stitchfix credit that I cannot wait to use. I never win anything and was in complete shock! 
– We saved a couple of pups from a high-kill pound {look for more details in the crappies section…}
– We will be reunited with some good friends soon. They were living in Scotland when we were there and now they’re in sunny Florida. Wine and homemade pizza, here we come!
– Being able to relax and read on a plane. I just love plane rides… not Air France plane rides, though. Screw Air France.
– Starting Season 2 of Homeland. Intense! Although at this point I hate Sgt. Nick Brody.

– We’re fostering two stray dogs. They’re males and they like to mark; therefore, they wear doggie diapers in our house. You would think this would deter them from peeing, right? Nope. They go in their belly wraps and don’t care if they stink. You guys are adorable and have sweet eyes, but please get adopted soon so we can steam clean the carpets.
– Moving to Florida means packing up our apartment. We just moved here five months ago.
– Studying Malcolm’s bowel movements every day {aren’t dogs fun?} is getting pretty disgusting. After his episode involving onions I’m officially paranoid. And it doesn’t help that he scarfed down an entire rawhide a couple of days ago. Google tells me that bowel obstructions are a bad thing.
– Staying up late and waking up early. Always a drag. Always tired.

Dear Husband, I always have a great time with you when we decide to travel. I’m glad we both get excited to take weekend trips — it’s fun to explore new places! Dear Hockey Games, I must admit, you’re much more fun than baseball. Better music and the players get into fist fights which is fairly entertaining. It looks like we’re going again tomorrow night because B bought tickets. Dear Life, Please slow down!

    I’m pretty sure dog-parents analyze and discuss poop way more than human-parents. Our girl has irritable bowel syndrome, so anytime either of us sees her poo it’s reported, since we need to know when she’s having an issue. We’ve even got our own lexicon. sigh.
    But good luck with the fosters! My second foster was a stray, and she was SUPER fearful of everything, and a nervous pee-er. So if the microwave dinged? She peed. If the neighbor’s creaky garage door opened? She peed. If the tv got suddenly loud? She peed. And you couldn’t say “NO” firmly or pick her up (to get her outside) or else she’d pee/pee more. Potty-training her was a nightmare- but thankfully she didn’t mark! Here’s to… relinquishing dominance??

    Good luck those foster pups! How sad that they’re marking everywhere though!

    awesome that you’re fostering!! Does the place your fostering for pay for neutering? also, moving to Florida? WHERE?!
