Adventures With Albus

I know I talked about this handsome little monster on Wednesday, but I want to formally introduce everyone to Albus. Sometimes I want to tell people his name is Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Decker and see if they get the joke, because I'm pretty sure it would be a good way to tell if we should be friends or not...
Guys. I thought I knew what I was getting into with a puppy, at least a little bit, I was wrong. Albus is about 50% snuggle monster & 50% tornado. I swear he only has two speeds: passed out or Tasmanian devil. He's been a handful since day one. 
I picked the little monster (as I have come to call him, obviously in a very loving manner) from a family friend's farm about an hour and a half north of where I live. She told me to bring a box for him to ride in, which I did, and he wanted to sit in my lap. Mind you, we're going about 80 down the highway. From that moment on, he has honestly been my shadow.
In typical lab fashion, he's grown like a weed. The original estimate was 50 pounds. Overachiever that he is, he breezed right past that. He just turned 7 months old (yeah, I know I missed the instagram with his chalkboard, I'm a bad pupmom) and is already sitting pretty at 60 pounds. His legs have been the same length for the past few months, which has been hilarious, he reminds me of Bambi when he first learns to stand up.
We took the first puppy training class at PetSmart and it was definitely worth the money, so worth it that we even signed up for the Intermediate class. We start on Super Bowl Sunday (but don't worry, plenty of time before kickoff.) We're still working on all of the things, especially stay... and the whole loose leash thing. He's just so excited whenever we go on a walk that he wants to go a lot faster than I do. Or smell everything. We've almost mastered not pulling on the leash.
Now, what I could really use tips on is how to make him less of a morning person. He is up every morning at 6:15am and ready. to. play. Never wants to let mom have a cup of coffee before roughhousing. How does he do that? Maybe the question is how can I become more of a morning person like him? I don't see that one happening any time soon. Tell me about your pups! Are they also crazy morning people? Or do they let you sleep in?

Hey What's Up Hello

Oh, hey there! I bet you weren't expecting to see me today... Since it's been a whopping six months since I've been a good blogger, I thought I should start again by introducing myself and giving a little spark notes version of what's been going on lately.

So, last we spoke, I'm sure I was talking about buying a house and surely about getting a puppy. That's really been the focus of my last few months. There are so many things I kind of knew about being a homeowner and so many other things I didn't realize would happen all at once after I moved in. 
Let me tell you, I knew what I was getting into getting a puppy, but I didn't realize what I was getting into with a puppy and no roommate. I feel like Albus has to be able to do whatever I'm going to do or else I feel guilty. I will be the first to admit that I am a helicopter momma with him. (PS Albus has his own instagram, clearly necessary to not overwhelm my friends with only puppy pictures. I'm pretty sure he will be more popular than me) I mean, just look at that face!
So! I'm back. I'm back to my bullet journal and all of the instagram hashtags. (PS, Elle & I decided the reason we dig bullet journals so much is because it kind of reminds you of passing notes in high school...) I have built out a plan for January (whaaaaaaat) but let me know if there's anything you want to see here this year! I can't wait to get back into everything. How has everyone else been?? What have I missed?

Can of Corn: Dream Roadtrip

Welcome back everyone, I'd like to thank you all for taking a break from Pokemon GO to read this post, it really is appreciated.... 

Okie dokie! I'm just the co-host, P.J. is the brains behind the operation, so here are the rules guidelines for Can of Corn!
  • Write about baseball using the theme (or not) on the dates provided (or thereabout) from March-October. Just make it baseball!
  • Use the button in your post somewhere (at the end or whatever) and link back to me + P.J. 
  • Go to one of our blogs the day this comes up (or thereafter) and linkup! The linkup will be "live" for a week after the date.
  • Visit other blogs, read, comment, and make some new baseball pals!
  • Have a cold beer (because let's be real, anything I'm involved in involves a cold beer...)
Can of Corn 2016 - Dates
Today we're talking road trips! I'm about 5050 on road trips. Sometimes I really dig them, other times I'm literally the worst to take on them because I literally have to pee all the time. It's ridiculous. ANYWAYS. I'm going in the direction of dream baseball trip, first of all I'm going on a pretty legit trip next weekend: hitting Camden Yards, whatever the gNats call their ballpark, and there's even talk of a road trip to Pittsburgh.... So in one little trip I'm all but doubling how many parks I've been to ever!

I really would like to win the lottery and be able to take a summer and hit all of the parks in one trip, but you know I probably have the right amount of luck for that lotto ticket. I'd have to prioritize. My first stops would definitely be Fenway and Wrigley. Hands. Down. Next, I'd really like to see the Rockies and that terrifying sculpture in Miami just to say I'd been there. And Seattle, because. Seattle Grace. duh.

Where do you want to go on your baseball roadtrip? Wanna pick me up on the way? I promise to not drink any water before we get in the car. Pinky promise!
