Minnie Pearl goes to the vet

I just pulled out my little point and shoot camera and found this picture on it. Minnie is always such a good girl at the vet’s office. I took this as they were weighing her. Emerald always walks around on the scale, but Minnie follows commands a little better, so all we have to say is, “Sit,” and they can get an accurate reading.

I just love the way she smiles!

Thirteen Thursday

I’ve been pretty lazy with my blogging lately. Actually, I’ve been pretty lazy overall, but that’s another story. In an attempt to actually accomplish something tonight, here is a 13 Thursday list of random pictures form my computer.

1. This is why Steven has no room to sleep when he comes home. All week long, Minnie has believed this was her spot, and then she’s expected to give it up?

2. Roush should be a model. He loves to have his picture taken. It’s a very strange thing for a cat to enjoy.

3. Roush also likes to sleep in very cute positions.

4. Occasionally, I can no longer stand throwing a nasty, slimy dog toy. Mr. Squeaky got a bath recently.

5. Steven’s latest toy:

6. I bet your grandma didn’t get vodka for Christmas! haha, ok it’s hairspray for her to use at work…and I think that box came from the beauty supply store. Why would they have a vodka box?

7. Christmas or a birthday party? Both actually. My cousin, Casey, was born on Christmas day of 1987 – 9 months and 6 days after me.

8. Sometimes on long trips, my husband does scary stuff to make me laugh.

9. Steven rarely finds a book interesting enough to read.
Emerald rarely chooses to sit in his lap.

10. He sure is cute when he sleeps, but I’m rarely awake before him.

11. Every family needs a sweet little cocker spaniel.

12. I love this picture. Taken about a month ago at 10 a.m. using available light.

13. This is my favorite picture of Biscuit of all time.

Merry Christmas from the Andersons!

UPDATE: Please note that our Christmas card this year was a collage of images of my attempts to get good Christmas photos of our five pets. We do not have 20+ animals, even though it may seem like it at times.

Also, I need to mention that the names on the card are not in order of the last row of photos. Oops! L-R they are, Biscuit, Emerald, Roush, Minnie Pearl, and Poncho.

Another little project

After church tonight, I finished cleaning the house and discovered I had an extra couple of hours until my guests arrive. Two hours with nothing to do? Hmmm….

This is what I made:

Hanna & Minnie Pearl

Hanna loves Minnie Pearl. Minnie also really likes Hanna. She’s usually playing too rough and jumping on people, but she’s very gentle with Hanna. It’s the sweetest thing! She always lets Hanna hang all over her and do whatever she wants to her.

Things Minnie Pearl Has Eaten/Destroyed

As most of you can tell by now, I’m slightly obsessive about lists. I make random lists for everything. Here is another one I’ve been thinking about lately. I guess I’ve been thinking about it because I’m subconsciously worried that Minnie will fall back into her eating-everything-in-sight mode.

– 2 phone chargers
– 2 pairs of athletic shoes
– throw pillows (at least 4; ugly ones thankfully)
– carpet
– 2 bed pillows
– lamp cord (She only did that once. I think she learned that lesson the hard way.)
– baseboards
– recipe box
– address book
– the bottom lining of our box springs
– pajama pants
– Christmas card
– water bowl
– wallpaper
– a pumice stone

I’m sure there is more, but that’s all I can think of at the moment. Not to mention, I told Steven 3 weeks after getting her she needed a crate because she is a chewer. He ignored that idea. Well, after all of this stuff is gone …he says she needs a crate! Really? You think?

Emerald & Minnie Pearl

Sisters & Best Friends


Filed under Uncategorized

They used to be…

Look how cute they both were! What happened? Well, they are both still cute…

My dogs used to both be so little, cute, and sweet.

Emerald is still little and cute, but she now has an attitude. She literally turned her nose up to a little girl in the vet’s office! I was so embarrassed. She is very sweet to me, but she has no interest in cuddling with anyone except me. She is incredibly jealous, too. Steven is not supposed to give me any attention when she is around. She doesn’t like to share her mommy.

Minnie is NOT little anymore. She’s actually rather large.
She is still sweet and loves everyone, but she is a terror. She eats anything and everything that she knows she shouldn’t. Electrical things and fabric things seem to be her favorites. If we forget to shut the bedroom door at night, you can guarantee that my kitchen rug will be wadded up at the foot of the bed in the morning. Thank goodness it was only $4.00 at Target.

2007 in Review

I found this idea on another blog and thought it was a great way to reflect on the last 12 months of my life.

Waited week after week for an egagement ring. We had already started planning our wedding without telling anyone, so I was a nervous wreck, knowing it was coming but not when or how.

Steven was in Oklahoma working a storm. I was at home, still waiting on that ring. I spent Valentine’s Day with the girls.

I finally got my ring! I also turned 20.
We went to Missouri to celebrate Hanna’s 1st birthday.

Began the really crazy process of wedding planning.
Booked our locations.
Engagement photo session

Kicked off my summer break with more wedding planning and a trip to Georgia.

Got my puppy, Emerald!

Spent the month trying to organize/clean our house, and I don’t remember much about the month.

Bridal portrait session and back to school!
Wedding planning got even crazier.

Celebrated my sister’s birthday.

Celebrated Halloween a little too much. Steven suffered a small injury due to the celebrations.
I had my family bridal shower.
We got our puppy, Minnie Pearl.

Celebrated Thanksgiving in Lake City and Jonesboro.

Attended Ashley’s wedding in Little Rock.

We got married!
We honeymooned in Nashville.
We also celebrated our first Christmas together as husband and wife.
