For the past few months, my sister has been searching for a companion dog for her little cockapoo, Baizie. This weekend, she found Lilly. This little sweetie is seven months old and just about the snuggliest dog I have ever met. Walker and I provide doggie day care services for my sister, so this pup pretty much turned our lives upside down. I spent the weekend frantically puppy proofing the house. The first day she spent with us, well, let's just say we didn't get much sleep and leave it at that. It's totally worth it, though. Lilly will settle down soon, and in the mean time, she gets me up and out of the house to enjoy our gorgeous spring weather. Can't beat that!
Diva spent some time at our house over the weekend, and we took advantage of her presence to color some eggs. Pretty, huh? One of the best parts of being an auntie is getting to do all the fun kid stuff. Diva and my nephew Squeak are getting older, and they are the babies of the family. I'm willing to rent some little ones if necessary, cause I truly do love coloring eggs.

LOVE THIS BOOK! Shauna Reid has captured the right balance of humor and honesty in this weight loss memior. I was cheering for her at every turn of the page. This book inspired me to dust off my Reeboks and get walking again. Gotta love that! Four stars all the way.

I was excited to start this book after reading the reviews. I was expecting it to be different from what I normally pick up, and I was in the mood for "different". Well, different it is, but I'm not sure that's a good thing. The topic is dark, the main character is so very angry, and the overall tone of the story is so very negative. It's a well-written book and I'm glad I picked it up, but it won't earn a permanant place on my bookshelf. I'll save the space for something brighter.
