Adios, January

I swear, January is always such a rough month. I suppose it's partially post-holiday stuff (getting back into work, routine, eating slightly healthier, etc)... and maybe a bit that I expect it to be bad so I notice every little thing. But regardless, this January lived up to my expectations, with lots of anxiety, a few blah sick days, not nearly enough sleep (not for any good reason, unfortunately), and a sick pup scare near the end (she's fine!).

But it wasn't all bad. Here are some of the highlights of the month.

I commissioned a portrait of Tumbles! I can't wait to get a hard copy to frame and hang up somewhere :D You can see some the artist's other work here.

Donut date with Tim! I'm actually not a huge donut person - at all - but they're so darn pretty and we very rarely get out, just the two of us, so it was fun all the same.

Weekly drinks with my buddy Alex (Tumbles tags along too).

We started puppy jr. high! Learning some tricks to get through these challenging teen months.

New makeup (plus, it works well with my refusal to spend more than 5-10 minutes on makeup in the morning).

Dog park sunset.

Tumbles started daycare - a teen pup is tough to have at work every day. Now I can get stuff done and she has tons of pals to play with on weekdays!

Another me-Alex-Tumbles date night. Dive bars are our fav.

Ended the month with a trip to the doggie ER for some vomiting that just wouldn't stop. Everything is ok, but it was a rough night! This is my 3:30am face.

Here's to a less stressful but still exciting February! Tim and I have a vacation planned for the end of the month (our first trip together since April 2013!!) so it should be a good one.
