Maddie Loves Skype

by Meghann on December 12, 2012

Bridal shower thank you’s are done! Woo hoo!


I had so much thanks to give to so many lovely ladies in my life! Can’t wait to see everyone again in January! 🙂

While thank you-ing, I also had a chance to catch up with my twin bro in California.

His text, “Are you available to Skype? I want to see Maddie.” Pshh… I see how it is. It’s all about Maddie. I don’t blame him, she is a fun girl to Skype with. She likes to climb up on my lap and get as close to the computer screen as she can, trying to figure out who the heck is saying her name in there. She misses her Uncle Josh like crazy and is looking forward to seeing him in January (she barked all about it and everything 😉 ). He doesn’t fly in until January 2nd, so we’ll miss Christmas with him again this year, but we will have him here for a solid week so three cheers to that!!

Any other dogs who love to Skype out there?

I made soup for dinner tonight per Derek’s request (soup is the best comfort food when you’re sick).


In the pot:

  • 1 ham steak
  • 1 broccoli stalk
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can vegetable broth + 1 can refill of water

I cooked the veggies first, added the broth and water, brought everything to a boil, then brought it back to low for 30 minutes. It was the perfect, easy comfort meal.


I have a few more thank you’s to address, then it’s time for bed.

Good Night!

Haha my brother’s golden retriever, Molly, freaks when you talk to her through the phone and she recognizes the voice and her name.

That soup looks delish! How much soup broth was in the can? I have a gluten allergy, so I have to make my own broth and wondering how much I would need to use!

Aww! I love that! I remember back in the day when I was away at college I missed my family dog. So I would do the web camera with my family to see him 🙂

I think my dog is too old/lazy to care about Skype at this point! He’d rather just sit on his bed and stare at us.

oh man, now i reallly want to try Skype with my puggle!!! i bet she would be hilarious- a lot of what you describe about maddie sounds just like my pup…. especially how she doesn’t look like a running dog, but can bang out 4 miles and want to keep going!!
Lindsay @ prettylittleparadise recently there anything better…
