Wednesday, October 27


We are so excited as we are welcoming a new member to our family!  No, not get thinking all baby on us! Enjoying my coffee too much this AM, my 3 DC's a day, and my glass of wine at night for that to be in our life just yet. 

On Dec 9th Wilson will arrive at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and be ours forever!  Our first puppy!  He is a Soft Coat Wheaten Terrier and cute as can be.  Below is him as a puppy (this is actually him not just any SCWT) but he will also be white when he grows up and gets his hair cut...his puppy coat is brown with a black muzzle. He is a non-shedding breed like his poodle cousin Ted Hastings which is great for us sensitive to puppy dander. He will be 12 weeks old when we get him and they are keeping him for an extra two weeks since we have Lauren and Kent's wedding in Charleston!!!

Wilson Davis...hehe so cute!

This is a pic of our neighbors, Lucy also a SCWT which is what they look like when they're older (about a year old) and have a hair cut since their undercoat is white. You can get a good feel for what size he will be. The males of this breed are more fun loving and loyal, laid back, and people pleasers according to the breeders--even those with girls and boys "in stock". They are not aggressive like some larger dog breeds and if you get them neutered on time, they have no "boy" issues!

They are no more than 50 pounds and the boys are approximately 45 pounds. Wilson will not be cut like a normal Wheaten Terrier so if you google them and they look like little old men don't be alarmed haha. He's already so excited for his first car trips back to the airport to bring his Aunt Ann to her flight and back that same weekend.

Lucy--our 3 year old neighbor SCWT
He is ready for a fun life at the Davis house and can't wait to leave Missouri to be here with us just in time for the holidays!

So now my nights consist of reading dog books and trying to decide what color leash he needs (Joe's happy there is no pink allowed with boys).

yay for wilson!!!!

monday monday...

sunday i spent my time dog searching and cooking for joe's week at school.  i also made some of my mom's homemade spaghetti sauce to freeze so i can stop buying disgusting jars of sauce.  

passing it along! 

Deb Girl's Pasta Sauce
Vegetable oil
1 medium onion - chopped
1-1/2 Tablespoons garlic - minced
1 pound ground beef 
2-12 ounce cans tomato paste + 1-12 ounce can water (just use the paste can)
2-16 ounce cans tomato sauce  + 1-16 ounce can water (just use the sauce can)
1 tablespoon each: oregano, italian seasoning, basil
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
2 bay leaves
Coat the bottom of a heavy soup pot with oil and heat over med-high heat.  Add onion and garlic. Sautee together until onions are soft--add browned ground beef.  Add in tomato paste, sauce and water.  If sauce is too thick, add in more water. Add oregano, italian seasoning, basil and sugar. Pop in two bay leaves....Simmer for a few hours--the longer you leave it the better it tastes!

how i miss you...

oh adeep & michael how i miss you...

how to survive as a 20-something includes hiring butlers however in some weird/twisted/ironic way i am now the butler (among other things) at our house...on the phone with the dentists office last week and they asked me where to send joe's pre-patient paperwork.  laughingly (& full of love) i said oh that'd be to me--i am also the his executive assistant...the girl on the other end of the line says wow you must wear many hats, but surely you wear them well!

so i've decided although i may somehow have snowballed into the full time job worker, maid, butler, secretary, chauffeur, chef, yard woman, scheduler, lunch packer, social coordinator, wedding planner, and laundry mat worker for starters but as long as you're wearing many hats, wear them well!
