    I love that photo of your dog. What a funny position! haha

    I’m also passing on the Black Friday shopping in favor of chilling at home, doing a little cleaning, and taking a nice long walk. The craziness at the malls just isn’t for me – I like my shopping experience to be calm and organized and I can’t stand the crowds.
