Happy Friday, loves — how’d you guys hold up this week? The week after Thanksgiving can sometimes feel extra long, but this year it didn’t seem too bad. This year we’re trying to be a little more conscious of our holiday habits — actively trying to keep our nutrition and exercise in check, and budgeting ourselves so we don’t overspend. It can be a challenge at times, but it seems to be helping, because we’re feeling good! Are you guys doing anything differently this year to feel a little more balanced? Hope you guys have a great weekend — see you on Monday!

The Dog Years

Everyone talks about the “college years,” the “engagement years,” and the “wedding years,” but no one mentions the “everyone buys a dog years”. I know that’s kind of an odd statement, but have you noticed that everyone is getting a dog?? It might be more noticeable for us previous dog owners, since we grew up with a dog and now we’re settling into our homes with no pup wandering around.

The thing about getting a dog though, is that as much we want one so badly, we still don’t feel responsible enough for one. Is that bad? We’re in our mid twenties now, doesn’t that mean we should automatically be responsible adults? Part of us feels like we are, but then it’s like…welllll, I kind of want to go away this weekend, or suuure, I’ll go and get drinks right after work — but having a dog makes all of that complicated.

I guess part of being a responsible adult involves being responsible enough to know that right now, we can’t handle a dog. We should probably be able to keep house plants alive for at least a year before even considering it, amiright? Or maybe be able to comfortably pay a cable bill without cringing? Just a thought.

So for now, we’ll just enjoy our friend’s dogs (and those we find on pinterest)…
