Michigan’s largest…

reggae festival is going to be going down in Kalamazoo this weekend!! The musical line-up sounds promising. It’s fitting that the forecast is showing mid-90’s both Friday and Saturday. Luke and I will be there  jammin’ if you will be in the area and want to join us. 🙂

In other news, we have a date with Vinny tonight.


Luke and I have been thinking about getting a dog for awhile now. After giving some serious consideration to whether I’m ready for the responsibility of walking a dog (esp. in lake effect snow), picking up it’s poop, and vacuuming multiple times a week… (sigh) I finally filled out adoption paperwork yesterday for Vinny. He is a one-year-old Pit Bull Terrier/ Labrador Retriever Mix. I’m super excited.

It’s a pretty rigorous adoption process–you fill out a 1-2 page online application and then you have two phone interviews, the first is an initial screen and the second is a phone inteview with the current foster parents. After the phone interviews you have two face-to-face meetings with the dog and their foster parents… one at Vinny’s foster house and one at ours. I’m hoping this is a good fit but if not there are other fish in the sea.

A week or so ago Renee surprised me and flew out to visit for a long weekend. Yay yay! She was the first to break in our guest bedroom/full bath (hint, hint people). We had lots of fun bumming around Kalamazoo together. And watching as much Game of Thrones Season 1 as possible. Too bad she doesn’t live closer!!

We found a present from our 12-year-old neighbor at our front door the other day. I think she likes us. Or Luke.

Happy closing day – Luke and I are now homeowners!!! After a fairly painless close, we headed over to our new home and celebrated with a bottle of champagne and some cleaning. We picked up the moving truck on the way home from Kalamazoo and everything is already loaded up and ready for the move tomorrow morning. Woohoo!!
