Friday Five

One – Jelly

Our sweet foster dog Jelly leaves on Wednesday and I’m so sad. She’s such a great little dog and she gets along with Ringo and Abby really well. We were seriously considering keeping her, but I just don’t think three dogs will work out long term. We probably wouldn’t be able to foster anymore and it would be harder to travel with another dog. It was a really difficult decision, but I think it’s for the best (I hope). I already know that I’m going to be a complete mess when we drop her off.

The rescue that we work with is still in need of donations for the transport (Jelly plus 40+ other dogs are headed to the Pacific Northwest), so if you are interested in donating, you can do so here. Every little bit helps!

Two – Vegetable Garden

Adam and I started a vegetable garden back in March. We planted tomatoes, bell pepper, and jalapenos. We had a bit of a rough start (the tomatoes almost died) and we lost one plant to a digging dog, but it seems like our hard work is paying off. Our tomato plants actually have tomatoes on them! I noticed the baby tomatoes earlier this week and we were both so excited to see something actually happening. I can’t wait to eat the first tomato from our garden (hopefully they keep growing)! If anyone has any vegetable garden advice, let me know!

Three – Stomach Bug

Earlier this week I was completely wiped out by a stomach bug. I woke up super sick late Monday night and couldn’t even keep down a sip water until late Tuesday morning. It was rough! We spent last weekend with Adam’s family and all of them got it too. Adam said sick Tuesday night, but he didn’t get hit as bad as the rest of us. Thankfully I’m feeling better now – mostly just a little dehydrated.

Four –  Phoenix Zoo

A couple weekends ago my friend Michelle and I went to the Phoenix Zoo. Her annual pass expires at the end of the month and I promised to go with her one last time before then. We went early in the morning before it got too hot out and it was a lot of fun (although it was still hot). We ended up being the first in line to feed the giraffes that day. That’s definitely my favorite part of the zoo!

Five – Big Little Lies

While Adam and I were home sick on Wednesday we started watching Big Little Lies. I’ve been begging him to watch it with me since I started, but he wasn’t really interested. When his family was here visiting last weekend his brother and sister-in-law started talking about it and they convinced him to give it a chance. We have three episodes left, so we’ll probably finish it this weekend. I like it so far…no spoilers!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Anything fun planned? I’m going to a baby shower on Saturday and then we’re going to see The Book of Mormon on Sunday! I’m so excited! I’ve been wanting to see it for so long!
