Factbomb Friday – She is NOT JUST A DOG

She is NOT just a dog.

She is my baby. Soon, she won’t be the ONLY baby, but she will STILL be my baby. The very night I told Dave I was pregnant, I made him promise me we’d never be those people who cast their pup aside. It will be hard, the baby will need a lot of attention… but we will make it work because Roxy also deserves love, affection, and attention.

She will STILL be a priority, her needs will still matter, and we won’t love her ANY less. In fact, I’m pretty sure we will love her even MORE watching her fiercely protect that tiny little human.

Yesterday, two different people I am friendly with had to put their fur babies down, and my heart broke for them, of course. But one of them had tons of love, support and understanding, and it warmed my heart, and I was grateful she had that… the other one had people left and right telling her it’s just a dog, and it made my heart break for her even more so.

Why are we telling people how they should feel? Why are we minimizing their loss?

If you think it’s “just” a dog, maybe you shouldn’t have one… just my .02, and since it’s Friday and I’m feeling generous, you may keep the change 😉

 

Super Bowl Sunday – Go Patriots!

Again, I don’t usually workout on Sundays, but when I do you better believe my outfit selection is intentional!

I know tonight will be a late night as we are heading out for the Super Bowl, and I know I’m gonna be partaking in some indulgences, so rather than have to get up super early and slug my way through a 45 minute workout, I got it done today so I can stay on track!

I’m on week 6 of an 8 week hybrid; I did not come this far to only come this far! This is when planning ahead helps, so tomorrow I can sleep in a little without feeling guilty for skipping!

Let’s effin’ GO Patriots! 🏈💕

Monday Musings – Martin Luther King, Jr

Never miss a Monday…

But I’m gonna, and you know why?!

Because Mondays workout was already done, on Sunday!

Sara needed to do her Monday workout a day early because she had an overnight planned, so I was like well, we have a “night game” and those typically keep me up later than usual (and as is the case last night, is a LOT of adrenaline to come down from!) so rather than staying up late and then sluggishly working my way through an early workout, why not just get it done?!

So that’s what we did, and my sleepy ass is thanking me for it today, because I was still wired for a while after that wild game!

And as a reminder, today and every day, just LOVE and be the LIGHT!

Love is…

Love is when your husband gets up at an ungodly hour to turn the electric fireplace on so the room you workout in will be a little warmer for when you begin 😍 (we still have no heat and we don’t leave the electric fireplace on while we sleep!)

Look, far be it from me to take away any meaning from the huge, grandiose gestures… but for me personally, it’s those small but SUPER meaningful things that matter MOST and remind me exactly why he’s my person 💕
