Kerrie is a mommy!

I just want to thank everyone again for the birthday wishes! I'm sorry I haven't been around lately. I was severely sick for almost a week. I'm just now catching up on everything I missed out on, such as applying for jobs and running errands. Eep!

Despite my illness and hectic schedule, it has been a great week so far.

Kerrie adopted a purebred miniature poodle. She named her Babette. (Babs for short.)

Babs is an absolute doll and seriously the cutest puppy I have ever seen in my life. She is also extremely well-behaved.

Babs comes from a long line of award-winning show dogs. But she's not a snob at all. It's funny, but even though she's just a baby, you can already see her personality shine. Babs is very dainty and lady-like. She is not messy and she's strangely polite for a dog. But she has her moments of mischief, such as trying to devour Kerrie's Jimmy Choo heels or intimidating dogs twice her size at the park. She's fabulous. In other words, she takes after her mother.

This week, Kerrie and I took Babs to the park for a walk and photo shoot.

It was also a chance for me to show off my new 1960s coat I recently bought from a vintage boutique.

It was a lovely day.

I hope you are all having a wonderful week! Is 2011 treating you right so far?

Tights Lover said...

Aw, congrats to Kerrie on becoming a mom :-)! That dog is really cute...and I'm not always a dog person, either!

I love that you thought of me when you got the new tights! I'm glad someone listens to my endless tights rants...hahaha!

Thanks especially though for the sweet comment on Friday, it really meant alot to me...I'm glad you took time to consider what I wrote. Honestly that's all I could ask for...and since you brought it current s/o does know. Not always easy, but better than the alternative!

...and you actually had me considering the thought of writing a book someday. You have to stop putting these thoughts in my head! hahaha

I hope your feeling better and having a great weekend! Sorry for the excessively long comment :)
