However, there is one excitement that I know for certain is coming next Friday: a puppy! It's our most excellent wedding gift from Jon's younger brother. More specifically, it is a he, and he is a Welsh Terrier. I don't know if I've mentioned this on the blog before; I probably haven't, because for a long time the very thought of having a puppy would stress me out so I resolved to put it out of my mind until after the wedding. Ha. A week from today, Jon and I will get to meet our new furry buddy:
That's him! He'll obviously be a little older, probably around 9 or 10 weeks old. God, that's weird, I'm going to have a dog. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it. I hope Little Man (my sweet cat) isn't too mad...
Anyway, over many weeks and months we've pulled together a list of names. I'd like to meet the pup before we name him, but we have narrowed the field. Here's what seems to be the shortlist:
We're headed north of town right after work to meet up with one of my best friends/bridesmaids and her husband to watch the Syracuse Chiefs take on the Gwinnett Braves in a double-header. I'm so excited to catch up with Lindsay post-wedding! (Also very excited for Dippin' Dots and kooky minor league mid-inning diversions!) It really does take a while to get back into the swing of things after a wedding and a honeymoon, but we're working on it!
