A lot of catching up to do!

So I realized as I was sifting through the many pictures of Dante....that I suppose I am a bit obsessed. I kept thinking- oh but this is so cute! How do I pick? Oh- he is so sweet. Oh look at him there. So- I'm putting a lot of pics, but honestly- be grateful...this is a LOT LESS than I could've put. I don't know how I'm going to do it when I have a baby.

Here he is the day we got him. I like this pic of me and Clay and the dog.

Here we are each getting to know him...

Clay had both dogs fighting for his attention...(Stetson is the retriever...Patty and Paul's dog)

Here is Clay rolling up the rugs because they are really just asking for accidents to plop right on them:)

Here is Dante a week after we got him...already bigger!

Here is Dante today...2 weeks after we got him...even bigger!

Here are some random ones...I came downstairs to our bedroom to go to bed and Clay was laying on the ground, and Dante was laying on his chest. It really was quite sweet.

Here he is in his little bed. We have him sleep in his crate...but this is a comfy spot for him while he's just layin around. So cute. All in all he is getting better at commands...however sometimes he just kinda goes wild! Like running SO FAST everywhere and SO HYPER! He reminds me of a toddler. Can't keep your eyes off them for a second. Anyway...he is a good puppy and so cute.

I realized that I hadn't blogged about Graduation at all much...and hadn't posted any pics either. Here are a few pics from the big day...


I LOVED my graduation day. I owe it to my parents and Clay's parents and Clay- for that. All of them were constantly saying, "It's your day, what do you want?" I LOVED IT! Clay was so sweet- he kept saying, "I don't know why, I just fee like it's your day...not mine- I want you to get all the attention". He made sure that I walked first onstage cause he wanted to watch me:) We got shaved ice from snoasis after graduation, went to fact, the chinese restaurant was closed but Dad, of course, walked up to the door...causing them to open up and say, "How many?...Come on in!" It was wondrous...and delicious. I really really loved walking into the huge auditorium to the graduation song...I LOVED it. I seriously probably looked so goofy because I was trying to force my mouth not to smile so STINKIN HUGE! I was smiling so big because I was so happy. I almost burst to tears. I just felt so accomplished and so cool for wearing the gown and cap. You know- I've never done that before because I graduated early and got married:) So it was a super cool experience. I loved having my parents, Clay's parents, my oldest sister, and Clay's cousin all there to enjoy the experience. I'm sure it was super boring for them- but I loved having them all there. The only downside to the day was that I insisted on wearing my cute red heels and my feet were DEAD by the time the night was over. Seriously- death became them. I was regretting that about 10 minutes after we got on campus. Oh well...I looked cute and that is obviously all that matters in life.

On to more important things. I am pretty much obsessed with a new teen icon: Hannah Montana.

Who knew she was so stinkin awesome? I had no idea! Until I watched "Hannah Montana: The Movie"- I LOVED IT! I loved it even more when Patty got he soundtrack and I put it on my Zune. It wasn't even as cheesy as High School Musical. I totally love it. Where have I been all this time when people were raving about Hannah Montana? I guess I was all up in High School Musical's grill or somethin. Whatev...I have moved on to not bigger or better things, but Hannah Montana. It's a movie I'll definitely have to have for Christmas. I do have to say though that Miley Cyrus is a COMPLETELY different story. She's kinda so so....a little bit on the "teenager trying to be 26 and naked on magazines" kind of girl. So you know- I'm not a fan of Miley, but I'm a fan of Hannah.

Also, I am about to start reading Hunger games- finally jumping on THAT bandwagon. Thank goodness. Where have I been for that too?

I've been reading a series by Anita Stansfield...the Jayson Wolfe series...I forget the names all of a sudden but I'll tell ya later. They are way good as well. There are 5 of them.

Alright- that's it!

The dog is getting BIG so FAST!

Diddo on the Hannah Montana stuff! I got hooked awhile back because that was the only decent thing on my 3 channels in our old apartment on Saturday morning. It sort of became my ritual to watch while I ate my breakfast. Ren even got me a Hannah Montana Barbie doll for Christmas 2 yrs ago because he thought it was so hysterical -- nice, am I 6 or something? I just got the movie, love it -- and I am glad to hear that the soundtrack was great because I've been wanting to get that too.

Your dogs legs after just 2 weeks look soooo long! What a cutie. It won't be long before Dante is not laying on top of Clay for a snooze.


I can't believe hwo big he got! Yowsa! his legs are so long. We never talked about graduation because that is when my cancer happened. I am very proud of you danielle. I'm so glad you got it done and over with. The pictures are so cute. I love you-

Holy cow, that dog has gotten big! The cute baby phase is over! It's pretty funny to see that you're one of those families/couples that just loves their dog. I'm glad it's going well and you love him. He is going to be huge. I'm glad you posted pics of graduation! They were so cute! I'm so glad about the Hannah report becauase I've really been wanting to see that movie. But I figured it would be dumb. Now I can watch it!!! You look so little and skinny in your pics. Glad you're doin' good. love you!

The Hunger Games!! You'll love it! I finally got the second one and am reading it!

I'm about to start Hunger games too! I've heard they are super good!

Mindy said...

Ok Hannah Montana.. Love the movie! Totally agree about Miley Cyrus though, so the next Lindsey Lohan or Britney Spears.
Your dog, sheesh. He has grown quick. So cute though. The first pictures look like you guys just had a baby and are googly eyed about it. I am so that way too though. And Congrats on Graduating.
I hope house hunting is going well.

Loved the doggy pics, and he is really cute. Growing so fast and I hope he will do as you command for both of you. Sometimes they don't obey both parents. I never asked you did you get the checks I sent you? I miss you both and we'll have to get over to see you when you get moved into your new home. What an accomplishment to be all done with college at your age and I am so proud of you. I love you so much grams
