My dear crafty friends



Our JOY


Papillon



the newest addition to the family



isn't he cute!!!!

.......


Ok, here's the story.....

2 Saturdays ago, my hubby and I went shopping at Pier one after lunch, we met Anna, another shopper at Pier one, she was holding 2 puppies and one of them is this cute little guy.
He looked just like a teddy bear and all the sales assistants at Pier one asked to hold the pups, so do I. He is just too cute!

Anna told us she is selling the pups, but my hubby and I love traveling, and travel so much, we knew we just can't have one at home at this point even though we love dogs. Because of that reason, we didn't even think of asking Anna for her contact number.

In the car on our way home, the pet topic started as usual.

"ya..... we just can't have one, who is going to look after the baby when we are gone"

"ya, I hate to send the pet to pet hotel, you'll never know how your baby will be treated, you'll never know who they are mixing with, so sad, no, we are not having one at this point"

"if only we could find someone to share the dog, you know, I don't mind paying all the cost, I just want someone who loves dog like us and take care of the baby while we are gone"

"ya, if only Clare or Dolce move back here after schools, stay close to us...."

 blar blar blar blar blar.... the conversation went on... as usual

no solution

we just can't have a dog right now period!

On Sunday evening, our friend Brendan came over for dinner, we were chit-chatting at our backyard after dinner, suddenly, I thought.... OUT LOUD

"Hey, why we never thought of Brendan?"

ding ding....

so we told our story about having a dog 

guess what?

Brendan was excited, he always wanted one but thought he cannot afford and WOULD LOVE that he could have one to play with once in a while.

We've found the perfect match, a nice person, a friend whom we trusted, who loves pet and willing to take care of the pet while we are gone, so now what, we do not have Anna's phone number, and don't know where to find the dog. I looked on craigslist all week, to see if Anna posted anything since she is selling the pups, but nah..... I don't want to just buy any dog, I am not at the point that I need a pet at home, I fell in love with that pup at first sight that was all, if I cannot find that one, I am not having one, so I wasn't tempted to get any from the craigslist listing I read, even though they look as cute, nor going to the pet shop to get one or adopt one.

Last saturday after lunch, I suggested to my husband that we go back to Pier one and see if Anna shops there again, no, we have no such luck to bump into her again. Before we left Pier one, my husband just strike a conversation with one of the sales girl, and guess what, she said "Oh yes, we all know Anna, wait... I think my co-worker got her business card, let me call her and ask"

so you know the happy ending of the story...

here we are

with our new baby - Papi



out of a sudden, my life style changed, I woke up early, at 5:30 AM, just because we are potty training Papi, I did that hourly too, and then spend the in between hours holding him, cuddling him, so I have no time for the craft room the past few days, and then we have to leave for the trip since we already made al the arrangement, we are lucky that my son Lione stays with us right now, so Papi can be in good care while we are gone, but I can't wait to go home and I can already tell, our traveling is going to cut down a lot, at least I know the next 2 that my husband got on his list, Shanghai end September and Zion National Park early November is NOT GOING to happen! Because now, we have a good reason not to go anywhere until Papi is old enough to come along.
