New Addition to the Family

No, I'm not talking about the baby yet, but I did get a new pet last week that I am very fond of. This is Pansy, the tiniest goldfish you ever saw. She is very low maintenance, although not the best pet to keep you company. Last week we went to a mid-busy season party for Soren's work and they had a white elephant gift exchange with the theme of office supplies. I'm not sure how Pansy fits that theme, but either way it got me a new fish. Ever since we have moved here I keep trying to get Soren to buy me small pets like a baby bunny, an Easter chick, etc...So now I have my pet. So far she has lived about 2 weeks under my care. We'll see how long that lasts. Goldfish and plants have a way of dying on me.
Anyways just thought you'd enjoy. Its definitely the little things that make me happy these days, especially since the move has been less than thrilling. (But its getting better!)
Speaking of little meant so much to me when Soren showed up at work to surprise me yesterday. Apparently he actually ran out of work so he left his office at like 6 and surprised me at my work! It was a great treat considering that on Wednesday he didn't get home until midnight. :)

Ok, so your blog has a link from our byu ward's website. And I thought I'd see how you're doing. Your blog is really cute, and your house looks fun too. I need to get a blog up and running one of these days, but we'll see when that ever happens. Anyway, just wanted to say hi. Congrats on the fish! :)

Hurray for a new pet! I'm glad to hear that it is still alive! My students just asked me if we could get a class pet.. like a turtle. The only possible option that I would consider would be a fish. I told them I would look into it... but I'm not so sure that I really want to have one. I think it would die over the weekend, or I would have to take it home every weekend. I guess we will see. :)
