Ever since LuLu arrived and my mom brought her dog, Annie, to visit, Frank (cat) has refused to come downstairs. He was quite curious (obviously!) and adventurous and decided to watch LuLu from the ledge of the staircase. Luckily, yesterday Frank did venture downstairs for food and water and hopefully will continue to come around.
LuLu is a HOT MESS! She had quite a day yesterday - peed on her brand new bed, climbed through the fence to get into the "dog yard," and managed to cover herself in red mud. Needless to say, she got a bath. I also bought her a pink t-shirt and some toys from Old Navy and a nylabone - which she loves. Thank goodness she is chewing less on my hands and feet and more on it! She also had a fairly successful night in her crate - perhaps 3 nights is a charm?!
Today Mike took LuLu to the vet for her 2nd round of shots. Apparently she showed herself and acted a fool while there. I am not surprised! The vet, however, doesn't see any basset hound in her and thinks we've got a full beagle on our hands! I am thankful that maybe she will not get as big...we will see.
I am looking forward to going home at lunch to play with her - she really enjoys that time, and honestly, it is nice to get away from work everyday. Thank you, LuLu for giving me an excuse!

I am making progress, though. Here is an update:
Water - a
Power - a
Met neighbors - a
Picked out kitchen paint - a
Ordered patio furniture - a
Bought homeowners insurance - a
Yes, there are more things to accomplish, but surely we will get there sooner than later. I can't wait to finally be able to stop by on my way home from work and just take it all in! Or maybe I should say - start all the work!
This weekend Mike and I are going to IKEA in Atlanta to look for rugs and lamps. I am really excited - especially about the breakfast complete with Lingonberry juice - delicious! I will have an update with items purchased next week!

With such a nice yard, I am sure that the skinny diva in me will get a work out! Speaking of my inner skinny - good news to report. Over the past week i have lost 1.8 lbs! Here is an update:
- Weight - 228.8
- Walked to lunch yesterday instead of having Mike bring it to me (thanks Lindsay!)
- Chose grapes over fries at Chick-Fil-A
I did get a chance to walk yesterday, and it is amazing how much better I slept. I will do that again today. At the new house, there is a sidewalk that goes up Pendleton Road - I think that will be a great place to walk!
Work calls...so I will post more updates soon.
