Spring… Are you coming?

We had a few warm days here and there and I had hope that maybe Spring was coming. Well now it looks like a giant snowstorm is heading our way. We may end up with rain or tons of wet, heavy snow. So it looks like winter has decided to come very late. I just keep thinking beach, beach, beach because I get to spend 4 days at the beach with my family in just a few weeks!

Due to the cold weather we did not do anything very exciting this weekend. Friday night we just relaxed and I was asleep by 9:30. Last week was a long week in nanny-land. Hopefully this week will be better. Saturday we got up and headed to Chick-fil-a for breakfast (Yum!) and then did some shopping. My current organizing obsession is those lovely wicker baskets with the fabric lining. I got the cutest one the other weekend for Dolly that says “My Stuff” and has paw prints on it. I got one to organize the bench at our entry way for gloves and hats and such. This weekend I got one to put on the back of our toilet because we have zero counter space. So it was so nice to put everything in the basket and have our small bathroom counter free of clutter!

On Sunday we went to church, grocery shopping and worked out. We are not very exciting in the winter weather. This coming weekend we are going to Ohio to visit my family and taking Dolly with us. Hopefully she will be a good car traveler and hopefully the winter storm won’t interfere with our travel plans!

Well Hello Dolly.

Well we started out 2013 with an exciting new addition to the family. A 3 year old greyhound/pointer dog, Dolly Piper Glover. We had been looking at her for awhile and finally got to go meet her last Saturday. We loved her and brought her home with us that day. For those of you who know me you know I’m not the biggest dog person. But Dolly has made me a dog person. She is so sweet, adoring and well behaved. I had a couple days off this week so it was good to spend some time with her getting her used to the house. She is so well behaved that she stays at home with free roam of the downstairs while we are at work and she has not misbehaved once.

So that is our biggest news, this week we also had our first snow of the winter. It has been ridiculously warm for January until this week. This week brought very cold temperatures and snow. I had to drive to work in the snow on Thursday and snow driving is not in my comfort zone. Fortunately it was only about an inch so I survived. I cannot tell you how ready I am for sunshine and the beach and warm weather!

So that is the news in the Glover house. Other than getting Dolly we have not done much else exciting. Hopefully we can do something else exciting soon to blog about. Hope you all are doing great 🙂
