Bella Rose Miller

Most of you are already aware that we have a new member of the family. Josh FINALLY got his wish and got an Olde English Bulldog! We named her Bella, well, actually Kai named him Bella. We gave him a few names to choose from and that is the one he picked. She is 10 weeks and absolutely adorable!

Oscar has really settled down with his old age (approaching 10) which allowed us to think his body can take another puppy being around. He really has not messed with her at all. He just lays on the couch and grunts at her! I think he is pretty over the fact that Josh and I keep bringing "things" into the house, AKA Malakai, Leila, and now Bella. On a positive note, we are replacing our carpet with wood floors in the spring so I'm not TOTALLY freaking out about the potty training :)

On another note...Happy 2009!! We had a pretty laid back New Years. We went up to KC just for the evening and had a very nice "Christmas" with my Dad, Lisa, and little sister Kiera. New Years Eve was filled with family, games, alcohol, and food. Who could ask for anything more. I have a few resolutions which include re-organizing. This includes my life, house, finances, health, and everything in between. I have let things get a little, shall I say, chaotic! So whats the first thing I do? Those of you who know me can probably guess...I buy some books! Josh seems to think that this helps zero with organizing our house and just adds clutter, but I am really feeling these books! They include:

1. Eliminate Chaos: The 10-Step Process to Organize Your Home and Life

2. The Life Organizer: A Woman's Guide to a Mindful Year

3. 2009 Family Facts Family Life Organizer & Planner

Other resolutions include running a half marathon, maintaining our 1 date night a week, and only taking Xanax on hockey days! LOL!



Best thing since I last blogged: Our new addition :)

Worst thing since I last blogged: Taking down Christmas decorations...ugh!
