Hanky Pank...

We got a fish! I decided to see if Jeff could take care of a fish before we start poppin real kids out. We named him Hank. There was an old ugly dresser in our apartment when we moved in, and we didn't know how to get rid of it. Jeff kept saying, "Well, if we just painted it black, I think it would look good." I brushed off his suggestions, and then one day I came home from work and he had it all painted. And surprisingly, the hideous dresser is now actually decent looking.

So now we had to find something to put on it. We walked up and down the aisles of Wal-Mart only to find candles, glass vases, and other things I don't know how to decorate with. We dragged our feet as we headed towards the exit empty handed...until I got the most brilliant idea. A FISH! Our living room is decorated with black, dark red and then we have some plants mixed in there, too. We went and checked out the fish, and then we saw him. Sweet little Hank was floating in his little plastic cup. Hank is dark red, and then we put black rocks in the bottom of his tank with a green plant, so he became that perfect decoration for us.

We have been doing a lot of painting, and fixing up around the house, so it's kind of messy right now. Tuesday is clean the house day, so as soon as I get it all cleaned and ready to go, I'll post some pictures of our apartment with our latest addition.

I can't wait to meet Hank! I also think a fish is a great substitution for kids! They are so quiet and always mind... I wish we would of thought of that!
