After the whole freaky and insanely hyper puppy incident, we decided to go with a more seasoned canine companion. Cue Abby. Abby is a 2-3 year old yellow lab and she is great. She loves to go on walks and chew her toys into tiny pieces. Her most impressive accomplishment yet is the complete destruction of a golf ball in 2 minutes. She is tons of fun and such a nice dog. When people come over, she gets all crazy and hyper, but you can usually find her sprawled out on the floor, snoozing away. We call her our interactive floor rug. We like her.

What is that? You'd like to hear another hilarious anecdote about Abby? If you insist. We hook up our computer to the TV to watch Netflix, and every time the cursor moves on the screen, Abby lunges at the TV and tries to eat it. When the cursor disappears, she goes to look for it behind the TV. We thought this was hilarious until we noticed all of the dog slobber and nose prints on our TV. Live and learn.
P.S. I still think it's funny.
We made Cafe Rio burritos and salads on Sunday when some friends came over for dinner. I made tons of it and we had lots of leftovers. That means we've been having Cafe Rio leftovers for the last 3 days which= all of my pants are very tight.
I like to think that I am not a horrible cook. I have a few tasty things I know how to make, and I am usually competent enough to read a recipe. But for the life of me, I can not nail chocolate chip cookies. This week I spent an embarrassingly long time scouring the internets for the perfect oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Satisfied that I had found THE recipe, I set out to make them. And guess what. They are not that good. My cookies are always either super flat or super cakey, neither of which is desirable. It pains me to say this, but thus far my favorite chocolate cookie is the kind that come from refrigerated cookie dough. All I want in life is to be able to make a bomb diggity chocolate chip cookie. Is that too much to ask?
