'I wish' .... I was six years old and going trick or treating, and my costume would be this cute little bumble bee!
Warning this picture is quite scary. It's the year of Borat! Be glad I didn't show the other side!

Enjoying the nice weather outside. Yes she is sleeping.
Her big bowls! She will grow into them but for now they are so big that she puts her paws in her food bowl when she eats.
I hope that everyone is having a great week so far. Hard to believe it's only Wednesday!

Well Monday afternoon I got a text message from my sister saying that she had 2 puppies that needed a home. What?! Where did these puppies come from and why does my sister have them. So the investigation began and I called my sister and she proceeds to tell me all about it. Her roommate found the 2 pups on the side of the road and the mother was a couple miles up the way. So Dana grabbed the pups and tried to catch up. Sadly, the mom just disappeared. Dana took the pups to their house to find them a home. After my mom's suggestion to Michele, I got the text and after work I made my way to their house. At this point I am scared, nervous and excited all in one. Chris has really been talking about getting a big dog for awhile and this seemed like the perfect possibility. I mean what are the chances of coming by an adorable female lab PUPPY that needs a home and not have to spend a dime for adoption. Great! However, all I can think of is Bentley and all that happened and the disappointment of not being able to keep him. I don't think I would have been able to handle it. So I tried not to get my hopes up. This is all I could think of on the way over. I get there, walk through the door and BAM...instant love! I look down at these 2 adorable little girls and this huge smile crosses my face. In the back of my head I am screaming "don't get too attached, don't get too attached." After playing with them both I made the decision and went for the chubby reserved one. You should have seen Chris' face when I pulled up the driveway. He was waiting for us. We gave her a nice long flea bath and set her all up. The next morning I took her to the vet and all was well and she is one healthy little girl! So because of that I am now able to tell yall about her. I didn't want to jinx myself or get my hopes up.
Brixie loves to play, whine and cuddle! The first 2 nights were rough. She would cry non-stop unless you held her. Finally last night I took one of my shirt and wrapped the heart beat pillow I got her and put it in her crate. That did it! She slept so sweetly last night, as did Chris and I, lol! It's been quiet the adventure. I forgot what it was like to have a puppy!
So now you know why I have been MIA. And now that things have settled down a bit I can get back to my blogging! I hope everyone is having an awesome week!

Fall is officially here and Texas is feeling it...FINALLY! This weekend has been cold, wet and rainy and I must admit...I am loving it! The Friday afternoon storms brought in the chilly weather and hopefully it is here to stay. It has given me the chance to wear my gorgeous new scarf from the sweet Roxanne and the opportunity to light my latest purchase...the Pumpkin Spice scent by Tyler Candles. It screams fall!
I hope you all had an amazing weekend and stayed warm and cozy.

This is the one that I sent Roxanne and it seems like we have alot of the same taste. Hers too has threads of gold and also a hint of silver. When I saw it and saw all the shades of blue I thought it would be perfect. I hope that she likes it!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
PS. At the end of October I will be doing a fabulous giveaway! Details later.
