Our Ruby Tuesday

I’ve concluded that I’m a bad blogger. I’ve neglected my follower and that upsets me…

So- The life and times of Erin, as of late:

Well as spring decided to go into hiding for a little while longer last weekend, I headed South- to the sunny state of Texas where it was… raining. Ah well, it was a short trip made by my boo and me for the sole purpose of picking out our puppy! Her name will be Ruby and she is a precious red mini goldendoodle. We didn’t get to take our little bundle of joy home, but we made the trip to pick her out and to check out the breeder.

Here she is at 3 weeks old:

Isn't our little Easter bunny cute?

She won’t be able to go home with us until the end of April, which gives us plenty of time to puppy proof and rest up… :)
She will mostly be with my Jeffrey, but I have been given full visitation rights. I’m super excited to get her home with us and April 17th can’t come fast enough!

In other news, I’m proud to say that I’m a full participant in all the madness this month. – March Madness that is. I have filled out my bracket (for the first time) and, not to toot my own horn or anything, but it doesn’t look to shabby. At least for a person who had no idea what a “seed” was going into it. I’ve picked West Virginia to win, and I’ve been told that it wasn’t a totally outlandish choice. We shall see how I’m holding up in a couple days.

Now, Idol Madness is an entirely different story. For those of you who don't know what Idol Madness is, it is a competition much like March Madness that my friend Courtney designed, where we (my friends and I) choose who will be voted off each show. We get points for each of our correct choices. At the end of the show, the person who has the most points at the end wins! I’m ashamed to say I’m falling behind. In my defense however, I feel like this has been a very unpredictable season and it’s anyone’s game. (I am rooting for my girls Didi and Cyrstal, even though in “idol madness” I originally picked Lee to win it all.)
...Lee is still in by the way, which means I might not be totally off base!

This weekend I’m looking forward to a Saturday full of Sooner Scandals fun in Norman with my friends. I’m hoping it will be a lovely sunny, warm day where we can sit outside at the Mont and “swirl it up”. Those ice cold alcoholic beverages seem like they would be just wonderful right-about-now. Puhlease Puhlease don’t rain on us sky! I’m begging…via blog…this means I’m serious. I’m ready for Spring to …uh Spring!
Welp until next time (hopefully it won't be a month, but I'm not making any promises). Love!
