Sundays have become my lazy days. Rob and I attempted to go to Blue Plate Diner this morning, but opted for Cracker Barrel instead. We waited about 13 minutes just to get our coffee. I guess the wait was worth it because I soon got my blackberry and whipped cream buttermilk pancakes. Later today I made Rob go to Starbucks and get me a Peppermint Mocha, my absolute favorite holiday treat!
We close on our new house this Wednesday! YAY! My parents are coming down for the closing and are staying for Thanksgiving and to help us move in. I am meeting someone at the house tomorrow morning to measure for our custom-made plantation shutters. Shooo, who knew plantation shutters were so expensive? Geez! Oh well, I think they're well worth it and apparently they increase the property value of your home.
On a lighter note, Rob and I will be fostering a brussels griffon that will be up for adoption via the National Brussels Griffon Rescue Association. As you all know, this association is where we got our precious Apple. They are in desperate need of a foster home for a griffon in Arkansas that is in bad condition. A family dumped her off at a Humane Society where they found she had several skin conditions and sicknesses. She is all better now, but needs a foster home while she's up for adoption through the rescue society. I thinks this is a great idea for Rob and I as we love our brussels and would love to help another one out in need. Here is a picture of Georgio, who will be our foster dog for a couple of months. Let me know if any of you all are interested in adopting her. She is 2 years old and is housebroken.
