I'm not trying to steal Lacy's thunder, but we are no longer expecting a puppy…we now have one. Quinn surprised me last night with out newest addition.

Isn't she cute? Her name is Muhana. She is perfect for me, a virtual puppy. Last night, we paid our bills and Quinn picked them up and said he was going to go walk them to the mail. I did think it a bit strange that he was going to walk mail out to the mail box at 9:30 at night. He was gone for a bit, and I started to think it a little strange. But just shrugged it off to the fact that he must have just met someone along the way and was chatting. He came back about 20 minutes later with a huge smile on his face and something hidden behind his back. Then he revealed his surprise. My very own Nintendo DS with the game Nintendogs. I'm in love already. We visited the kennel and spent time picking out the dog. We choose from 6 different breeds but finally settled on a Shih Tzu. I haven't spent much time with her yet, but plan to tonight while I'm at the baseball game.

For all the Arnett's out there that were addicted to SIMs back in the day (and I know there are a lot of us out there), this is right up your alley. You need to check it out.

Last night for FHE we made chocolate chip cookies. They are quite delicious. Quinn was very helpful in making them, especially when I realized that I had neglected to buy baking soda so he had to make a quick run to the store so we could finish. However, I think we may have made too many. Currently, we probably have about 5 dozen cookies at the house and I didn't even finish baking all the dough. Perhaps, I should have halfed the recipe. Oh well. If any of you want some, feel free to stop by.

The Art of the Side Dish

I heard that there was a lively debate that took place at one of the tables at my wedding regarding side dishes. According to several reports, the men felt like a meal required a side dish, while the women felt like their job was done with the main dish or entree. I need help. While, I love Dream Dinners and the convenience that it has brought to my life, I am struggling with the art of the side dish. I can pretty much never come up with more than salad, rice or potatoes. Quinn hasn't complained, but I'm bored with my own lack of selection. Thoughts or suggestions?
