Pippa and Pizza Dinner
This, ladies and gentlemen, is…
She isn’t exactly named after Miss Middleton, but she looked a little more boyish than girly to us, so when we said she was a salt-and-pepper color, we thought of naming her Pepper. Since that isn’t exactly gender-specific, we settled on Pippa. Gender problem = solved! And, pop culture references aren’t bad, either. 😉 She is quite lovey-dovey, but she is pretty stubborn – and loves to walk. She’ll be keeping us quite active, I imagine.
So, we spent today gathering supplies for our first dog. Mom and I went to PetSmart and Target and dropped Pippa off to be groomed. The above picture is post-grooming; she was very shaggy before. While we were out, I snacked on a Milky Way bar.
Since grooming takes about two hours, we came home to eat dinner before picking Pippa up again. Daddy ordered us a large Works pizza from Papa John’s and some cheese sticks.
It’s been a while since I’ve had pizza and it tasted good. During dinner, the groomer called and said they were done. So, we got back into the car and loaded our nice, neat puppy back into the car. She is so calm and she didn’t make a peep the whole way home. She must be pretty worn out – it has been a long day for her. Now, she’s lounging around the house getting acclimated, and so are we. We’re introducing Pippa to Mr. Harry Potter tonight, watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Last night, we watched Sorcerer’s Stone.
My evening snack is a multiple-parter, so I’ll probably eat it in rounds, but I’ll just take the one picture. It includes:
- 1 large Braeburn apple
- 2 T. creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 c. Fiber One Original Bran cereal
- 1 sugar-free Jell-O Chocolate Vanilla Pudding Snack with 1/2 T. unsweetened cocoa powder (to bring the sweetness factor down a little)
I might enjoy a few pieces of candy later, but I’ll post those in the morning. Off to find the Chamber of Secrets before I get some much-needed sleep!
