My new partridges

I can't really describe why I'm so obsessed with these little partridges. I just am. They are the heaviest, fatest little birds I've ever sat on a shelf, and I love them.

I got them at Shop Good Grace on Etsy, the same place that I bought my yellow vintage tufted pillows, which I also loooove.

Theresa (owner) and I have been emailing back and forth for the past year, and what a sweetheart she is--she refunded my purchase of the partridges and told me to make a donation to the LAM Treatment Alliance, which is fighting to find a treatment and cure for the disease that my mom has. That warmed my heart! Maybe that's party why I love these birds so much. But they're also just so adorable, it's hard to get over it.

We recently got back from a little getaway to Scottsdale, where we visited Brian's lovely parents. The weather was pretty chilly (with the exception of Saturday) but somehow it still feels like vacation, as long as there's a pool and palm trees.

The Lodis family recently added Shae the shepadoodle (German Shepherd / Standard Poodle mix) to the family. At 9 weeks, she's as cute as ever -- and has far surpassed Bean's manners, already.

She likes to sleep right next to (in) her water dish.

One day we went to Sodona, which was absolutely gorgeous. When we got there, I had an appointment with Claudia the pyschic! My first visit to a psychic! Oddly enough, she called out many rather specific things about my life and personality. She knew my mom was ill, she knew Brian had lower back pain, she knew I was self-employed. I don't really understand it...but it was fun!

Our next trip on the books is Austin for the Chrissy and Danny nuptials. So excited!
