Happy Friday! I feel like this week just flew by — maybe it’s the five hours of The Bachelor I consumed between Monday and Tuesday (I swear that show is a black hole for productivity) or maybe it was running around to get ready for our trip this weekend. Read on to find out where we’re off to this weekend!
This week’s rose is that Will and I are heading to the Dominican Republic as we speak! Neither of us has ever been and we’re excited for a couple days in the sun, especially after the snow (!) in Connecticut this week. We’re staying at a hotel that’s been on my bucket list for years and I can’t wait to Instagram every corner of it! And seeing a new country means making a little progress on my 101 in 1001 list (#3 under travel) so it’s a win-win all around.
This week’s thorn is always my least favorite part of traveling: leaving Rory behind. Thankfully my parents are able to watch him while we’re out of town (which means he gets lots of quality time with his puppy “brother” Coach) but I miss him SO much when I’m gone. I’m heading on a second beach trip next week for work and the thought of spending so many days apart makes my heart hurt. I swear I have this thing where every animal starts to remind me of Rory — literally to the point where Ali and I were swimming with dolphins a couple years ago and I asked her if it made her miss her dogs too (#normal). I don’t know what to say except I’m a crazy dog mom and I guess it could be worse… like being a crazy cat mom (kidding… kind of 😬).
What were your rose and thorn this week? Any other obsessive cockapoo moms out there?
