WE GOT A PUPPY!
Last week when I was in Vegas I got a picture of the cutest little Pit Bull puppy from B, and he said that she just showed up at one of his properties. After posting found dog signs around the neighborhood, he took her home while we both posted her picture on our Facebook pages to see if anyone wanted her, not thinking for a minute he would want to keep her since I've been begging for a puppy for the last eh, year or so give or take.
The next day I got a text from him saying he wanted to keep her until I got home because he loved her and wanted me to meet her! What!? I was so excited to get home and hang out with her and sure enough she is the sweetest little nugget I've ever met! We decided on Sunday that we were officially going to keep her and make her part of our family... well, basically she is our family! So, now we are in the midst of potty training using a doggie door. So far so good but if anyone has tips or tricks I would very much appreciate them! I won't lie, she has not made for the best sleep the last few nights and it was rough getting to the gym this morning. We both sat around until the very last minute so I forced us to drink some Amino Energy and get our butts moving. Of course I felt a million times better after working out, and the saying "getting your shoes on and out the door is the hardest part" is totally true.
Don't be alarmed if many pictures of Charley start showing up on the blog- I already have like 835 pictures (not really) and we've only had her for 3 days!
Totally switching gears, B and I went to a BBQ over the weekend and my parents friends house, and they had this awesome tomato basil rice that I recreated at home.
1 cup brown rice
1 tbsp EVOO
1 tomato, diced
1 package fresh basil (about a 1/2 cup chopped)
1/4 tsp sea salt
pinch of pepper
1. Cook brown rice as you normally would. I do 1 1/4 cup water, bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until water is completely cooked off.
2. Transfer rice to a bowl and add remaining ingredients.
3. Serve rice at room temperature.
This rice totally reminds me of one of my favorites- tomato and basil bruchetta. You can probably throw in some non fat mozzerella chunks and it would be like the real deal!
