I always say, "wow, that was a busy month," but when I say "wow, February was a busy month," I mean it in a way that surpasses any way I've ever said it before. Note: life + owning puppy = life on fast-forward! Here's the run-down for what I trouble I was getting into back in February:
Heidi 72-hour vet check - healthy pup minus the minor ear infection that cleared up in a week's time
Volunteer with BC - first time to volunteer as an adult; it was good.
Euchre Night with BC - first time to host a card night; much fun and more Euchre Nights to come!
Phone Dates with Kristin - started having a weekly phone date with Kristin to work through our devotionals
Bonfire at Joel's - even with the Florida Hospital Lady Track Shack 5K the next morning I still went to Joel's, hung out, met some folks and enjoyed the perfect s'more!
BC Movie Night (I Am Legend) - a favorite movie of mine (also partial inspiration for getting a German Shepherd Dog), and lovely company
Super Bowl Party with Matt - my plans fell through but Matt and company provided for a great group of people with whom to celebrate the event. Sad that the Colts lost but at least a Boilermaker took the championship!
Avatar + Pizza with Matt - loved the movie, discovered a cool pizza joint, great friend with whom to enjoy both
Paws in the Park Walk with Matt - Heidi's first socialization opportunity; Matt joined us for the fun (despite the cold weather!)
The Bling Thing with BC - downtown night! First time to the underground bar (can't think of the name of the place). Loved hanging out in the red, Clue room!
Puppy Valentine's Day Party at Joel's - adorable! Cooked out and made several new puppy friends!
2-week vet check - all healthy!!!
Sunshine movie with Matt - I was right on in knowing that Matt would love that movie! Nice evening and discovered my new favorite white wine!
Sam's Senior State Wrestling Tournament - amazing weekend with family and friends to celebrate Sam's big victory!
Chucky's 21st birthday celebration - belated but brilliant! Can't wait to go out with him again!
Puppy Class 1/8 - so much fun! Heidi loves playing with the other pups, and we both love learning!
Waffles with Matt - we decided my Belgian waffle maker needed to be put to good use. Matt brought fresh strawberries! Yum!
Dinner with Darin - Darin was in town! He got to meet Heidi, see my place, and then he treated me to dinner at Amigo's! I love hanging out with Darin; we always have nice conversation!
Pie & Away We Go movie with Matt - another nice evening in with Matt; we both loved the movie, and I made him a pumpkin pie for helping me get to and from the airport the previous weekend.
BC Movie Night (I Am Legend) - even though I watched the movie recently, it was lovely to host another book club movie night!
Church - finally settled into a schedule with Heidi and figured out how to escape the house for a couple hours to get my spiritual fill
Bonfire at Matt's - wrapped up the month with a great evening at Matt's bonfire! I brought Heidi! Everyone loved her and the cucumber salad I brought. S'mores were amazing!
