They love to play...constantly. Ugh, can't wait for that backyard!
I got out this huge dogbed for Diesel to use but he insists on flopping his fat German Shepherd but into Bentley's teenie-tiny bed. Sometimes they both try to sleep in the small bed...hilarious. I think we have about 20 pics of them both in the bed. They also both try and cuddle in the crate together.
I just can't wait for them to have more room to run and play! They are "the cuteness."

I was having a Carrie Bradshaw in the final episode of Sex and the City moment. I rocked my BCBG corset seemed strapless dress and dressed Stephan in a velvet blazer and tweed pants and no tie (going rebel). He is my Ken Doll. But that is another post altogether.
We had fun despite the prom like atmosphere, the white elephant gift exchange, lame games like 2 Truths and a Lie and the Newlywed game, mediocre food, drunken debauchery, and the fact Stephan somehow got put in charge of taking pics.
At least we have some new cute pics!
We also discussed his registered AKC name and ended up just being silly about it on the 2 hours drive from Kansas City to Manhattan. Things like Kerstone's Diesel McDiesel and Sir Diesel von Dieselson... yeah... we were way bored.
I have lots of nicknames for Bentley:
So I had to start making some for Diesel. So far I have:
-Diesel McDiesel (too catchy to pass up)
-D-Bomb (cause it's awesome)

I had to ask my friend who already lives in the area to go to the house to let them in. She is preggers with two toddlers and lives over 30 minutes away which officially makes me a bad person. ANYTHING FOR MY COUCH (crazy look in the eyes)!!!!!!
I'm having one heck of a time getting this thing, though. I seamlessly ordered it over the phone with Macy's (because I went to the store twice and no one would help me so there was no way I was giving them my commission!). And was so impressed with the customer service. And then, long story short, I've been on the phone back and forth for a week with Macy's and Discover card. Grrrrr. They keep trying to double charge and blame each other. Then they wouldn't deliver to the new house zipcode...lame. Eventually they made an excpetion but only for a day that no one would be there...ugh.
Just imagine some mirrored side tables, blown-up black and white wedding photos, sunburst mirrors, faux fur throw, crystal lamps, zebra ottoman, parisienne burlap pillows...maybe I do have the beginnings of a room in mind... I DIE!!! Can't wait to sit my butt on it :) NO SHEPHERDS ALLOWED!!!

We ate and had fun and I was asked to tell my story about the customer that shopped in my store for 8-hours (you don't wanna know). All the girls ended up making a dessert so we had to have a family bake-off. Here were the contenders:
Mom: Pumpkin Cheesecake torte
He gobbled them all up.
Then we had our traditional Thanksgiving photo shoot for the Christmas card picture. No matter what we always end up by the fireplace:) And my mom was amazed at the use of the self-timer on the camera:) Oh, goodness, there were more outtakes than actual good shots though...

Here's what made it awkward and hilarious:
-The wardrobe: matching white shirts, jeans, and socks
-Two dogs (both drugged up on Benadryl...don't judge me)
-Two dads (At the last minute Stephan's dad got added into the mix)
- The poor photographer who had no idea who went with who and what the heck was going on
I went to my happy place and just let it happen. Here's is what we came up with (Please, Picture People, don't sue me!)
Yeah, not the most attractive pose for the figure but cute-ish
In acting they always say never work with animals or children...
Absolutely ZERO sibling rivalry here:)
We look like the cast of a CW or ABC Family TV Show...Yeah
