Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Last March Meme

1) Which TV character do you think you are most like?
I really don't know. 

2) What time do you go to bed?
Haha! With the chickens. I go to bed by 8:30 during the week and 9 on the weekends. Lame, I know.

3) What was the last meal you made from scratch?
That is nonexistent. I have never made an entire meal from scratch. I really don't cook. If it doesn't come frozen or you don't just add water to it, it doesn't get cooked in my house! LOL

4) What is your favorite type of music?
I love and mostly listen to contemporary Christian music.

5) In what position do you sleep?
Whatever position I can manage around Milly and Shelby crowding me out of the bed. hahaha!

6) What is your first memory?
I don't know. I have many "mini- memories" from when I was little. I guess I do remember a time when I was riding in the buggy once when I was really little and I was with my Mom... but I don't remember much of it.

7) What is your least favorite smell?
Honestly- any perfume or cologne. It makes my head hurt. 

8) It's your round at the pub and your friends asked you to surprise them. What drink would you buy and why?
Diet Coke. I don't drink and I don't provide others with alcohol. 

9) What was the last thing you read/watched that made you cry?
I read a blog a week or so ago about another furry friend being sick. :(

10) They say that you learn something new every day. What was the last thing you have learned?
I learned how to upload to Google Docs just a few minutes ago. Pretty proud of myself. Did it all on my own!

11) Which Literary love interests would you snog, marry and avoid.
I don't even know what this is asking.

12) What is your oldest memory?
Is this not the same as my first memory???? Hmmmm....

13) Paperback, Hardback or Kindle? Which of these is your favorite reading format and why?
Paperback! I have gotta have the book in my hand... and hardback usually costs too much. LOL!

14) If you could bring back any canceled TV series for another run what would you pick and why?
Without a Trace... man I miss that show. I have bad taste in tv shows, though, because almost everything I love gets cancelled after the first season (if it even makes it that long.) 

15) Paperback, Hardback or Kindle?

Tell Me Tuesday: Week Eleven

I am just now joining in on this, so week 11 is really my week 1, but oh well. Such is life.

"What is the best part of your average day?"

I'll start by saying that I am a teacher. I teach third grade and can assure you that I wouldn't know an "average day" if it slapped me in the face. However, I love the fact that my job is challenging and rewarding. All of that being said, the best part of my "average day" has nothing to do with my job (though there are many great things about my day-to-day work life).
The best part of my average day is coming home and being greeted by Milly and Shelby.

When I come home each day they run to the door and greet me, tails wagging, barking (woot wooooo), and Shelby always does a little dance for me. I look forward to that every single day. I know that no matter how hard my day was, no matter how exhausted I am, I get to come home to two sweet faces who are so glad to see me their whole bodies wag with joy.

My silly little "Ann Wobe".

My serious Milly.

My MilMil full of smiles. 

I love these girls!

Yesterday marked one month until Milly and Shelby turn 5 years old. I can't believe it! I feel like just yesterday I was meeting Jake's parents in the Sam's Club parking lot to pick them up. Yet, here I am, sitting on the couch with my two (almost) five year old girls. In five years they have truly changed my life, my heart, and my goals. They have made me see things differently and have caused me to stop and take in the things I normally rush through. They are amazing. 
Five years ago (almost) they were little tiny puppies. When they came to us in June they were still tiny little puppies. They were whiny and shivering. They still whine and shiver from time to time- normally over not getting what they want in a timely fashion (which in Dachshund time is NOW as soon as they demand it). 
These girls have made my life. I love them... love, love, love them. 

Happy one month 'til your birthday, MilShelb! I am so proud, thankful, and blessed to be your MilShelb Mom.
This was taken their first day with us. Too sweet!!
