How Murphy Got His Name

I love him more than anything and, boy, does he make me happy. I honestly can’t imagine my life without him. I also can’t imagine him with any other name than “Murphy.”

When Mal and I took Murphy to the dog park this past weekend, we met another Murphy there (an older Yellow Lab), which got us thinking about his name. We agreed that “Murphy” is the perfect name for our dog. It fits him so well, and no other name would make sense.

Before we got Murphy, Mal and I almost named him “Barney” because, at the time, we loved the show How I Met Your Mother, and Barney Stinson was our favorite character.

Well, when we told a few of our friends about our potential pug name, quite a few of them made jokes about Barney, the big, purple dinosaur.

Uhh, crap. We definitely didn’t want to name our dog after an annoying purple dinosaur, but we didn’t have any other names we liked… until we picked up Murphy from the breeder: Gloria Murphy of Murphy’s Pugs.

Ok, it wasn’t the most original name, but it fit our little pug puppy so well. He’s definitely a Murphy. And he’s definitely not a Barney.

The other day, I had a serious craving for a cookie. But the weather has been so hot lately, there was no way I was about to turn on my oven to bake a batch of cookies.

Instead of giving up on my craving altogether, I decided to challenge myself to make a delicious cookie from whole ingredients without turning on the oven. The end result was a sweet and nutty, no-bake cookie made from mixed nuts, coconut oil, shredded coconut, almond butter, honey, and sea salt. They turned out great!

If you’re looking for a cool, summer treat that requires minimal effort and no baking, here’s the cookie for you!
