Pig baby.
The Boston Terror.

Really, anyway you say her name, she’s a funny little creature. See?


How is that comfortable?


Meiko Makes the Bed


This is just a funny little Meiko post with photos taken this past winter.

I put our sheets in the washer every weekend. So getting the bed made isn’t anything new to Meiko.  In the winter we have adorable flannel sheets from the Martha Stewart line.  As you might know, Martha has little French bulldogs.  These sheets are of her little Frenchies skiing and looking extra cute in sweaters & scarfs.  Meiko, is a Boston Terrier, but they look very similar to Frenchies.  Having these sheets adds a little whimsy to our bed.  Anyway, our little pooch has a knack for being in the way….clearly.  I want you to know, she placed herself in each of these positions.

Who doesn’t like fresh sheets?

Flat Sheet, thanks!

Flat Sheet, thanks!

I’ll just make myself comfortable!

Am I in the way?

Ahhhhhhh, thanks for making the bed.  Hit the light on your way out, please!

All tucked in!

Our old (and favorite) downstairs neighbor who recently moved out to Seattle posted this and I couldn’t help but share.  If it isn’t obvious by now that I love dogs, and especially little (sort of) Meiko look-a-likes.  I’m pretty sure if we had these door stops, Meiko would do the same thing.  Watch out for those door stops!

Also, take a look at this (what I think is) adorable ornament from Target for Meiko…it’s her friend, Rico!.

Meiko Shakes!


Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working with Meiko to teach her how to be a “real dog” in the terms of my sister and shake.

On Friday night and many treats later, Meiko got it!

After looking at this video and hearing feedback from friends, I’m the one who is a little excited…

meet my assistant.


In the middle of January I started a brand new job and with that I’m able to work at the office or at home.  I love having the flexibility to work from my apartment; I’m able to get more time consuming work details done annnnnnd I get to work with my awesome assistant, Meiko.

Well, she might not work hard, but she does make me smile when I look over from my workspace and that pumps my productivity level up! Thankfully that pillow is in the perfect spot otherwise I’d have a crabby meeks on my hands.

A Vaily Good Time!


After spending 34 hours in the car and a whole week on vacation with Robbie I can officially say I’m not sick of him! Good thing since I decided to marry him!! I was sad on Monday morning when I realized I didn’t get to spend the whole day with him and had to return to work.

Rob and Me skiing

Robbie and I skied a few days at Vail.  Only about 28% of the Mountain was open due to lack of the fluffy white stuff, which seems like it’s not that much but we didn’t even ski all of the 28%; it’s that big!  One of the afternoons Mac was able to meet up with us and take a few runs, It was easy to spot which way she went in her green jacket and red snow pants!

MacKenzie works at a really fancy/expensive seafood restaurant called Montauk where we visited her at the bar and had really yummy lobster macaroni and martinis.  The wait staff was really confused when they saw me sitting there and then saw Mac bopping around.  Some of them caught on that we were twins….I heard a “there is a girl that looks JUST like Mac at the bar!” a few times.

Me and Mac and Montauk

Karrisa and Rob at Montauk

The  hockey team Mac and Karrisa play for had a friends and family night since everyone’s family was in town for the holidays so Rob was able to play with everyone and I sat in the stands with Meiko.  I believe Rob was the only one WITHOUT full pads, he had some under his Redwings shirt but I bet he would’ve like to have had butt pads, too! Here’s Rob trying to score a goal on Mac…

Meiko's watching the game

Four of our meals we ate at Moe’s in Lionshead at Vail.  They have amazing pulled pork sandwiches, banana pudding, and macaroni! For only $9 you get the sandwich, your choice of 2 sides, and a drink—for anyone that’s been to Vail, that’s a STEAL! Everything is overpriced in Vail, so overpriced the gas stations don’t even put the prices up on their displays.  I guess that’s the price you pay for living in paradise.

us at Moe's!

Going on vacation with Meiko was a real treat! It was so nice to come back from skiing and be tackled by her kisses and love.  She was such a good traveler, sleeping 16.75 of the 17 hours there, and 17 of the 17 hours back! I think Meiko had a great vacation too; she was spoiled with love and got a few special presents from her GrandPawents; A snuggie and some very durable squeaky toys!

Robbie got some really great shoes, and I got the best present ever….spending time with Rob, Mac Karrisa, and Meiko.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’ll get made fun of because it’s really not that funny… I had a VAILY good time –get it? Vaily instead of very… I know, I know.

sorry for the poor quality photos, I neeeeeeeeed more than just my iphone camera.
