I am absolutely obsessed, and she is one of the things that I am most thankful for. (I’m already planning on getting her a brother in the spring… I might be a little crazy.)

Do you have any fur children?

For those of you that follow me on instagram, you’re probably getting sick of all of the puppy spam. #sorrynotsorry #cantstopwontstop

On Sunday I adopted a 9 week old sheltie/mini australian shepherd mix. She is cute, so smart, and more than a handful. I’m so incredibly excited to watch her grow into a well trained, well behaved adult pupper. (But for now we’ll just focus on potty training…)

Confession: I did something very bad last Friday.  Something that my conservative Christian school considers illicit.

I bought a hamster.  And I snuck him into my dorm room.

Everyone, meet Martin, the robo dwarf hamster.  (He’s named after my residence hall.  Oh the irony.)
