Little Happies: A Visit, Haircut, and Puppy

July 15, 2014


Sorry about going MIA on the interwebs! We launched our Adoption page, left town, came back and moved…which halted everything web related. We are just now getting back on the grid.

Quite a bit has been going on in the past two weeks and we have a lot of updating to do here on True Good and Beautiful! In the next couple of weeks we promise to get updates on the house, adoption, and fundraising front! For now, here are a few Little Happies that snuck in along the way.

In the move, I rediscovered this little gem.

My morning coffee and bowl of cereal just got a whole lot more enjoyable with Belle’s presence!



On the left is Cristiano Ranaldo. On the right is his stunt double look-alike.

Actually it’s just Jonathan…who recently joined a men’s soccer league and wanted to look like a World Cup soccer player. I gave him this cut a hour prior to the game. Complete with hot pink cleats, I would say he’s ready for the season.

I am in love.

This pic was sent to us by the family who’s raising the pups currently. I am not sure if that is our little guy or not but I don’t care. We pick up our pupper THIS upcoming Saturday!! πŸ™‚



It wouldn’t be a complete move without Mom and Dad Nissen coming for a visit.

My dad is a handyman, so he helped Jonathan get various projects done around the house Β that I would have been no help with. My mom is a shopper, so she helped me run around town buying things we still needed for the house and various projects.

A lot of our visit was spent knee deep in project work but we did manage to get away for some fun. On the left – celebrating Mom’s birthday at Hibachi Grill. On the right – selfie while hiking Aderlfer Three Sisters Park.



Apparently our attic is full of exposed nails.

Friday night Jonathan and I were attempting to put some items into the attic for storage. Up the ladder went Jonathan. Next thing I know, he’s turned around and blood is literally gushing down his head all over his face (photo would have been too gross for the blog…and actually I didn’t snap a photo because you don’t do things like that when someone is bleeding, so good job to me).

Thankfully, I kept my cool and took him into the bathroom to rinse his head to assess the wound. Turns out it really wasn’t a very big gash at all…but boy did it bleed!!! The photo above is after it was rinsed and we held pressure for at least 2 minutes to stop the bleeding.

Items still needed to go to the attic, so next time around, Jonathan was prepared! πŸ™‚

Cow Appreciation Day at Chik Fil A!

If you fully dressed up as a cow, they gave out FREE meals! Not just a sandwich but an entire meal! WHOA!! Thankfully they have a nice gluten free menu so both Jonathan and I were very happy. And that lemonade…mmm.

That’s a Little Happy wrap!

    Belle and puppy and family time… UH-mazing!! πŸ˜€ Such great little happies, for sure. Jonathan is cracking me up (yet again) with his attick helmet. I can’t believe that’s a blood stain, btw… looks more like a spilled full glass of wine. Ouch! My husband tells me the head bleeds a TON, it’s just super vascular up there I guess. Glad to know it was just a little gash. It must have looked like a horror movie for a few minutes there, though. And you guys make really cute cows. πŸ™‚ That’s a compliment!

      I am glad to be back on the LH bandwagon after being away for a couple weeks! And good to know, from a real doctor, that heads are prone to bleed a lot. By the amount of blood pouring I was afraid it poked his brain or something, which would have been horrible, so thank God that didn’t even come close to happened. πŸ™‚

    Oh that puppy is making me melt…but I’m laughing so hard at your Belle spoon XD

      Glad you like the puppy too! The family raising them says he’s the cutest guy in the bunch so we can’t wait to see him. And I am glad you like the Belle spoon. Next time I should feature the matching coffee mug that it matches! πŸ™‚

    I went to high school with Jon and just started following your posts. I love your Little Happies! And it’s cool he joined a men’s soccer team. Those can get so serious though! Hope his skills are close to Ronaldo’s too!

    Love this list and that puppy is SO cute! Whether you get that particular one or another one, I can see how you’d be really looking forward to this weekend.
