Meet Harper

I really can’t believe that I am just now getting around to posting about Memorial Day weekend, but whatever. I need to get better at blogging on the regular!

Valerie visited that weekend and brought her new pup! She rescued Harper from a local Chicago rescue about a week before visiting. Harper was such a champ that she traveled with Valerie with no fusses. Plus, she got along great with my mom’s dog, Jazz.

Isn’t she a cutie? I kind of wanted to steal her from Valerie.


She has the sweetest eyes ever.



That Saturday night, we had a lobster feast!

Ironically, I am not a fan of lobster. Every time I have the opportunity, I try it. I believe that taste buds change with certain tastes and textures, but I still do not like lobster. I will enjoy lobster bisque on occasion and a little bit of lobster, but nothing crazy. Regardless, I loved the experience of cooking live lobsters.

Funny, the cooking of the lobsters is my LEAST favorite part! Poor little guys! So you can cook ‘em and I’ll eat ‘em :D

How old is she? She looks young enough that Val can expose her to a lot of situations and social experience so she will grow up very well-rounded!

Oh that pup. What a sweetheart. If she goes missing, no worries: it’s just because I snagged her!

LOVE eating lobster. HATE making live ones. Your meal looks great though!

I don’t really like lobster either. And Harper is absolutely adorable! I love that pic with her and your sister.
