Floofballs, Pigtails, and Cadbury Creme

Look, I’m still alive over here!

*shocked gasps*

*cheers and applause*

*expectant stares*

Oh, right, I actually have to make this interesting. Well then, I shall tell you about the dog.

This is Noah, and he belongs to the most annoying human on planet Earth, who also happens to be a good friend of mine.
Joe is in my co-op classes, and his mom also happens to teach us (ironically, she is one of the nicest humans on planet Earth). So when she casually mentioned that they needed a dogsitter in the same room my canine-obsessed little brother was in, somehow we ended up saying ‘yes’ to having a dog over Easter break. 

Of course it had to be Easter break we had a dog who follows you everywhere. Noah made it significantly harder to take Easter photos for my doll blog.

But in spite of freaking out and having to carefully guard my mini chocolate eggs from a very curious doggo, I did manage to get cute pictures of what I dubbed The Cadbury Crème Chorus Line.

To be honest, I like Noah more than the Golden Retriever we borrowed in January. If only because daaaaang this dog is cute. Just ask Phoenix-Phaedrana;

Treacherous human.

However, my cats are not quite so big on the dog. They tolerate him, mostly by going and hiding. And in Apollo’s case, he goes and hides on top of the fridge and glares at me. He also got mad when he found Noah asleep on his special spot on my bed, so he begrudgingly walked over to my sister’s bed and started kneading on her plush unicorn. Phoenix and I thought this was too cute.

Speaking of texting, I realized this morning that Phoenix and I had logged over 300 messages in two months. We talk a lot. Especially since I tend to text her things like this;

In case you’re wondering, yes, I did wear my hair in pigtails that day.

That was also the day my hair was insanely curly and I had to restrain it somehow. But actually parting it down the middle was out, so the back was artfully messy. (and by that, I mean it was just messy. not artfully so)

It also somehow got tangled in my DIY oak leaf necklace, so that took a good bit of my patience to untangle the tiny chain from my rampant curls.

The necklace survived, however. Pretty good for $2 worth of wire and chain. I recently discovered how much fun jewelry making is, so now my friend has one of these, and wears it every day, which makes me so happy. My mom suggested to me that I make friendship bracelets, and because I had wire and extra time yesterday, I did.

But because regular friendship bracelets are boring and somewhat uncomfortable, I made three of these for Phoenix, my friend Joy, and myself.

Tell me these aren’t cooler than knotted embroidery floss! Anyone want a tutorial?

That pretty much sums up what I’ve been up to these past few weeks. I’m hoping to get back on track posting (like that’s happening), but it may not happen until mid-May when school lets out.

Anything interesting happen while I was gone? Fill me in!
