1.)We are always in a good mood---who wouldn't be in a good mood when someone is so dang excited to see you!
2.) We exercise. This is huge for us as we are those people who set their alarm clocks at 5:30 a.m. in hopes of getting up to run (Newsflash- we always end up getting up at 6:45 a.m.- exactly 45 minutes before we have to leave everyday) But now that we have Lola nightly walks have become a staple in our household. Also, we take a lot more naps after said walks.
3.) Our house is clean. If we don't pick things up she eats them. Plain and simple.
4.) We have a valid excuse when we don't want to go out. We are homebodies and I like to stay in sometimes instead of going out and getting crazy.
5.) She has helped reinforce the ideas we are not ready to have children. She will be the only living thing that depends on us to survive for at least the next 5 or so years.
6.) She's pretty darn awesome.
Don't judge me for the bad photo
