Puppies, friends, chickens, soccer....

On September 28th, Sterling's birthday we visited the Utah County Animal Shelter. We found this super cute blue heeler puppy and took him outside to play with us. He was so much fun and so soft and he loved playing tug-of-war with me :) I would have loved to get him, but he is going to grow up to be too big for us right now. But he was sure fun to play with!

Now for the REAL puppy.......
This is probably our future puppy!!!!!!!!!!! He is only 2 weeks old in this picture and you can't take them away from their mommies until they are at least 6 weeks. Which will be perfect timing for me to be all recovered from surgery (*fingers crossed*). This litter has four puppies and when they are ready we get first pick. This was our favorite so far, but it could change in 4 more weeks!

These guys are the same type of puppy as the one we will get but they are about 3 months old.

I CANT WAIT TO GET A PUPPY!!!! He's gonna love me soooo much and follow me around and go running with me and snuggle me all day long :) Yay! I have the coolest mom ever that she wants to get him for me. It seems like EVERY single time I get on Facebook I have another friend announcing they are pregnant. Everyone in the world is having kids and all I'm having is a hysterectomy. It sucks. But a puppy will make me sooooo happy :) Yay!!!

I also got the opportunity to play with my friend Cesia! She's so cool and fun and she has chickens!! Chickens are pretty cool and really soft to pet. See how pretty hers are?!

We went to lunch and played with her chickens and then we did the cutest best craft ever!
Look at these amazing pieces of art. Seriously, aren't these incredible? And so perfect. It was really fun and now I have cute Halloween decorations.

On Friday, October 5th I had the amazing opportunity to be part of the UVU soccer team's pink game. Since October is breast cancer awareness month, each team at UVU has a "pink" game where they fund-raise money for a cause or person in the community that needs it. They were so thoughtful as to include me and another awesome girl who has leukemia. I am so lucky to have such an amazing support group. It really makes me feel so loved to have so many people thinking about me. Thank you to the UVU soccer team, you guys really made my night, it was so fun to watch you WIN!!
I got a signed poster and soccer ball from the team and an awesome pink shirt that says "Stronger: Pink for a purpose"
I want people to know how much your support means to me. I don't know how people can make it through cancer treatments without outside help financially and emotionally. Every single donation and every note, comment or email has helped me. Especially as I prepare for surgery again it has been so nice to have people lifting me up. Thank you!

Check back Monday to see my surprise for the surgeons on Tuesday :)
