what are you doing new year’s eve?

What Are You Doing New Years Eve? by Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt


welcome, Zoe

We’ve been busy over here this fall- see the lack of posts?

Let me introduce you to our newest little trouble-maker:

Chicagoland Dog Rescue

We first saw Zoe on Petfinder.com, a website that helps you find rescue pets in your area, based on your specifications. Lucky for us, the Schaumberg PetCo was hosting adoptees from Chicagoland Dog Rescue, and Zoe was one of them. We headed on over & there she was.

After lots of paperwork, Zoe came for a home visit. WE wanted to make a good impression, especially with Zoe’s foster mom & director of her case. There was another family also interested in her, so Zoe got to choose- which family would she like best? She picked us!

Originally a stray, Zoe came to us with intestinal parasites, a urinary tract infection and soon developed pneumonia, which she battled for 2 weeks.

Now she is healthy, 40 pounds, somewhere around 6 months and we think she’s at least part plott hound.

What’s your guess?

Here’s her success story posted on the CDR website.


our pit completed… in-ground trampoline

How in the world can you make a trampoline accessible?

Thanks to one of Meredith Sinclair’s (Hoo-dee-Hoo) tweets, I found the perfect solution in an in-ground trampoline. Didn’t take much convincing of Otis Carter (Carter Albarran Landscape Group), our amazing landscaper, to give it a try. Now, our guy with cerebral palsy can walk right out onto it & bounce to his little heart’s content.

We might be the only people here in the arctic, snowy climate of Chicago to have attempted a pit trampoline- we’ll see how it fares after a blizzard or two. For right now, it’s just a lot of fun.

Whooo-hooo!


I’m just dreaming of Blue Heaven…

Seriously, heaven on a fork! And Key West perfect: quirky outdoor patio, live music, roosters & cats roaming, unbelievable food & friendly, funny staff. Long wait, unless you’re there early.

Best I ever had, and I do love cheesy grits.
