Dinner Last Night

  Well, the life of an accountant's wife has struck again! Since Pat is having to work later than "normal" hours right now as is our friend, Stephen, I have decided to start experimenting with dinners and make Erin (Stephen's wife) be my guinea pig. Last night, I made focaccia bread with salad and baked ziti. We ate a really late dinner because we went to Zumba, but I am hoping the calories we consumed were burned off before in our class. You should definitely try both of these recipes!! I found this blog, Annie's Eats, through a pin on Pinterest and I am so delighted to have found it! I cannot wait to try some more of her recipes! Yummy!!

A Corgi Christmas

  A little late, but we participated in The Corgi Butts Christmas Exchange that Kelly set up last year for us. We received our present and I had to keep it away from Wrigley because he kept sniffing it, knowing it was his. Ever since the exchange last year, Wrigley has loved opening gifts (I wish I had taken a video; it's hilarious!) because he thinks each present is for him and he loves tearing the paper and sticking his head in bags.

  Our present was wrapped so nicely within the shipping box and Wrigley was going crazy. We opened the card and found out our Secret Corgi Santa was Aparna and Gryff! I thought this was funny because last year, we sent Gryff's gift!

Finally to the good stuff, Mom!! 

  Opening the last box, we found a gift for me--a very cute reusable bag which I love! And there were two gifts for Wrigley: a skinneez raccoon and a galileo bone. He could not wait to get his teeth on both of them!!

Gimme dat coon!

  Thank you so much, Aparna and Gryff!!! We love our gifts!! I can't wait for next year again! It's such a cool gift exchange!
