A few weeks ago I asked for opinions of what I should change the name of our blog to.  I got several responses to that question many of them very interesting!  Here are some of name ideas that I got:
  • The Topher and his Melon
  • Our Little Mulberry Batch
  • Life on Mulberry Lane
  • Live Long and Blogsper
  • Three Black Dogs
  • Who Let the Dogs Out
  • Animal House
  • 3 Dogs and Counting
  • Baseball and Hot Dogs
  • Hitting the Bases with the Bosch's
  • Bosch's HomeRuns
  • Bacon Bytes
  • May the Bosch's be with you
  • Boschalicious
  • Wired in with the Bosch family
  • I don't drive well in reverse
  • Bacon Blog
  • Boschialize
  • Bosch in Motion
I loved how creative everyone was with coming up with names.  I think that I have narrowed it down to six names that I really like.  Our Little Mulberry Batch and Life on Mulberry Lane are great neutral names.  I also like Live Long and Blosper and May the Bosch's be with you because we're HUGE Star Trek and Star Wars fans.  My last two that I like are Wired in with the Bosch family and Hitting the Bases with the Bosch's.  I plan on changing the name of the blog within the next week so if you come up with any other suggestions or if you want to vote for your favorite leave me a comment or send me an email!

Mac World

After 8 years with our Dell computer we finally got a new computer!!  Thankfully the old computer lasted long enough for us to get a new one.  We had many conversations about what computer to get and we finally choose an iMac.  My first computer that my parents bought me was a purple iMac that I absolutely loved.  When I went to college they bought me a Gateway laptop and then when we got married we moved onto the Dell.  I have always missed my iMac and I'm so glad to finally have a Mac computer again.  It's going to be an adjustment getting back into the Mac world especially for Chris since he has never used one before.

After several days of transferring our iTunes and all of our photos the new computer is finally set up!  I want to send out a HUGE thank you to our friends Greg and Vaden for helping Chris sent up the new computer and with all of the troubleshooting.  Hopefully the new Mac lasts just as long as the Dell did.  Although Chris already has money set aside for when the new iPad when it comes out!!  I guess we are officially an all Mac family now!

This is Baseball!!

This past weekend was the start of Razorback baseball!  I can't believe that it is already time for baseball.  We had absolutely gorgeous weather this weekend in the 60s and we had a record opening weekend crowd with over 20,000 people attending.  We swept Delaware State and I think that it is going to be another good baseball season.  They changed the bats this year but we still did get to see one home run.

Opening Day 2011.  Notice the new glasses?

All you need is love

Last Monday was Valentine's day and I'm sorry that this post is a little late but we've had some exciting things that have happened in the last week.  It all started the Wednesday of the snow storm.  We were locked in the house and weren't able to leave.  So in my boredom I logged onto the Petfinder application on my iPhone.  I've been wanting another dog for a while now and Chris just ignores it when I bring it up. Well there happened to be a Boston Terrier named Newton at the local animal shelter up for adoption.  I've always wanted one and since Baxter is part Boston I just had to have him.  So when the roads started to thaw I called the animal shelter and asked about Newton.  The lady that I spoke with on the phone said that he had been adopted.  I was crushed because I really wanted him.  Well that Saturday I noticed that he was still up for adoption so I sent them an email.  I had totally forgotten about him until Monday afternoon when I received a phone call saying that he was still able for adoption.  So I went down and met him and it was love at first sight.  I had to go to work so I couldn't do anything about him.  Chris was nice enough to bring Baxter down to meet him.  Chris adopted little Newton into our home and that plus some beautiful flowers was my Valentine's Day present.

It's been an adjustment having three dogs but then in a way it hasn't been that bad.  Newton is a sweet natured dog who gets along with everyone.  Morgan has pretty much adapted to him but Baxter still not sure about him.  Baxter doesn't like it when Newton takes his toys away from him and he doesn't want Newton sleeping in the bed.  I think that once they all settle down they will all make good playmates together.

Snowy Days

Yesterday we ventured out of the house to go to the grocery store because we didn't have milk, butter, or eggs.  Plus, we were going stir crazy in the house.  I'm all for having 3 days off from work but I would prefer it if I was able to leave the house.  I'm a person who isn't a homebody to begin with.  If I'm at home I have to be cleaning, doing laundry, or keeping busy.  We have watched so much television in the past few days and I'm really sick of it!  At least it's suppose to be in the 60s this weekend and most of next week too.  I snapped some pictures of what the roads looked like and I've heard that the roads in town aren't any better this morning.
We did go out and play in the snow for a little bit yesterday.  It wasn't for very long but Baxter got to take his frisbee outside.  I took a video of him and it looks like he is swimming in snow!

Okay everyone I need some help with changing the name of our blog.  I've been debating it for the last couple of months but I can't come up with any good names.  I want it to be short and sweet but something that is memorable all at the same time.  I follow all of these blogs with such cute names like Jimmy Choos and Tennis Shoes and The View From Five Two but I just can't think of one for our own.  I thought of Our life with 2 dogs but I wasn't sure about that one and Living on Mulberry Lane.  As you guys know I blog a lot about our life, dogs, and baseball.  If anyone has any good ideas for a new name leave me a comment and let me know!


The last couple of weeks in Northwest Arkansas haven't been the best for winter weather.  Last week we got a couple of inches of snow.  Today we had 24 inches of snow, a record in Northwest Arkansas!  It looks like the planet Hoth.from the movie Star Wars the Empire Strikes Back.  I've never seen so much snow in my life before.  I'm thankful that they closed my place of work today and for tomorrow as well.  So I plan on sitting in the house with Chris and the dogs for the next 2 days.  I think I have figured out what is causing all of the snow storms.  Every time Chris leaves town we get a snow storm.  He's scheduled to leave next week so let's hope we don't get anymore!
Blizzard like conditions.
The snow comes up to the knees!
This is how Morgan spent his snow day.
We lost Baxter twice in the snow!!

On a positive note Razorback baseball starts in 9 days.  Let's hope that the weather is a little nicer than what we've been having!
I LOVE Ribby!!
