Feel Good Friday – Group Hug

*nods*

Do you agree?

I feel like there is so much discord in the world these days, we all need a group hug, to accept each other as the diverse, different creatures we are and to love each other unconditionally!

I know, sometimes it seems like a pipe dream… but I don’t see why it is so hard!

Happy National Rescue Dog Day!

🐾 Show me yours and I’ll show you mine! 🐾

😍

Happy National Rescue Dog Day – show me your sweet rescues, and be sure to give your sweet babes extra kisses and snuggles today!

After all, who really rescued who? 💕

This is our VERY sweet black lab/hound mix Roxy – she is such a love, she has her crazy moments like any other dog but she is such a sweet little love bug, she more than makes up for those few crazy moments!

She is a huge snuggle bug and contact baby, and I sure ain’t complainin’!

Hoppy Easter!

This would be a little cuter if I was a little further along (or actually ready to pop 😉), but I still love it!

Hoppy Easter everyone! So hard to believe next Easter we will have our own little “bunny” 💕

I am so excited to begin new traditions, and to experience holidays through a child’s eyes… this always adds several layers of magic to them, I feel.

Do you have little ones?

 

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! 🏈💕
