Day 12

This is a close-up of one of my favorite key chains, with a funny little story behind it. As most of you guys know, my goofy little (not so little) pup's name is Hudson. Everyone asks me why I chose that name, and it is kind of hard to answer. 

Usually, when ideas come to me, especially for names, I make it a point to write it down. I don't know if you know this, but I am a bit forgetful. So when I am blessed with  a good idea or thought, I save it before it slips out of my brain two seconds later. So I believe I was watching Rachel Zoe (i die!) on tv, and Kate Hudson was on the screen. At this time, Nick and I were thinking about getting a puppy sooner or later. So while watching Kate Hudson and Rachel Zoe discuss some red carpet dress, I am pretty sure I turned to Nick and shrieked "Hudson!!!!!!". He then continued to give me the what the heck are you talking about look that I know so well. Whatever, the thought process made sense in my mind, and we decided to name our puppy Hudson. 

Fast-forward a few months after we got the pre-named Hudson. My mom and I were shopping at Nordstrom for a new pair of jeans, and what brand have I been wanting for a while? Why, Hudson of course! Not because of my puppy, I actually hadn't made that connection yet. Anyway, the sales lady hands me this key chain, because it was free with every purchase. I glance at it, and had it to my mom, because she had been wanting a key chain. She looks at me and says.."Kai! You need to keep this...look really hard at what it says!" Oh my goodness gracious it was my puppy's name!! 

I instantly put my "custom made" puppy name key chain on my keys, and left the store happy. I have had it ever since, and it is still my favorite key chain!

Ahaa Hudson is such a cute name :) I named my cat Elmo. I can't remember the thought process to call her that but everyone always thinks shes a boy but shes not! Choosing names is always an odd process I think!

I love that name and what an awesome twist of fait that you got handed that key chain.

What a cute story, and how fortuitous that the keychain says Hudson!
