Small Progress!

Why am I excited this morning?

Maybe it's because I've been sleeping like.a.rock since starting P90X. Head + pillow = OUT.

Maybe it's because it's sunny and gorgeous and is going to be in the 70s (!!!!!) today!

Maybe it's because I don't have to come into the office tomorrow.

Maybe it's because getting a second dog was the best idea we ever had:

(Blurry blackberry picture. They wrestle and dance and talk to each other -- I love it!)

Or maybe it's because I'm wearing a pair of pants today that were definitely too snug just a few weeks ago. Over the winter, Nordstrom clearanced out several colors of my favorite pair of suit pants ever made, Theory's "Emery" trouser. At 40% off, I obviously needed to stock up, yes? But sizes were limited (hence, "clearance") and so I got one pair in a size down from what I'd been wearing, figuring that I was, after all, "going to" lose weight.

And holy crap, I did it! Months later, of course, but who's counting? All I know is that today, I really, really wanted to wear this gorgeous bright blue spring-weight cardigan that's been lying dormant in my closet, which was just the perfect shade to pair with grey pants. So, I crossed my fingers, tried the pants out, and...BAM! They fit!

Great sleep, fitting into my super-score trousers...I can live with this.


  1. When did you decide to get a second dog?

    I wish we felt the same way about our second dog. I love him, but I don't think adopting him was the best idea, for numerous reasons.

  2. As long as we have even discussed getting a dog, we always planned to get two -- the only reason we held off this long is that we got Sophie as a puppy and wanted to get her trained in the basics first. Cosmo turned out to be the perfect fit for Sophie -- even though he's older (3yrs), he's just as high energy as she is at 11 months, so they play together. A lot. Which is really, REALLY nice.
