Okay, I've been lazy. But that leads to many Friday things to chat about...
Happy take your pup to work day! Dental Student is working in the hospital's clinic this summer and I work in a courthouse, so Havi can't come with us. So make us jealous, tell us if your pup is coming to work! We heard that productivity increases if you bring your pup, but we think we'd just cuddle Havi all day!
We've been checking the mail everyday because Havi is expecting TWO packages! Our awesome painting by Art By Elizabeth, that we won for being her 5th blog follower. You all helped us pick out the best photo for her to paint...check out which photo won. Maisie and Me had reader appreciation week and we won a deer antler, and our Ultimate Chewer is excited to attack!
We started up a Facebook page, and we're getting better at integrating it with the blog and Twitter so please "Like" us. Constant pics and updates about a cute pup - sounds like a plan!
Law Student tried out a new sushi restaurant with her oldest friends last night. Poke is a BYOB Sushi place on the Upper East Side that does not take reservations. I hate when restaurants don't take reservations. But I love BYOB. So I consider that a wash. The food was delicious - we shared edamame, black cod, and tuna avocado salad. Then I had a spicy trio combination of sushi rolls. The food was delicious, but the portions were very small. It was moderately priced. I would go back, but I'm not running there.
This is Havi resting her chin on things. I can't resist any pup resting their chin on things. Its too cute.
Hope you don't mind if I knock over your coasters...
Two weeks ago Law Student came home to see 4 FDNY trucks outside the apartment building. When I came into the building my doormen informed me there was a power surge and the power has been out for hours. All I could think was that Havi was in the apartment for 5 hours without air conditioning. I ran up the stairs to her. Luckily, our apartment was not affected and Havi was just a little antsy (there were firemen on every floor) but perfectly unharmed. I made sure the building will now email its residents if the power goes out in the future. The building management emailed us earlier this week to update us on renovations in lieu of the outage (people lost power permanently and needed appliances replaced!), and reminded everyone who lost TV's, laptops, etc when the surge occurred to submit a claim to their renter's insurance. Thats when I said out loud "oops." We didn't have renter's insurance! If we had been affected by the surge (and many, many friends of ours had) we would've lost our two televisions and laptops, all bought within the past two years. So Dental Student called State Farm and got us covered! For the entire year we paid $130 up front for $35,000 worth of coverage. So...not exactly pup insurance, but something to keep in mind in these summer months, and something we should've signed up for a few years ago.
Anyone doing anything fun this weekend?!
