And my all time favorite realty show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood picks back up on April 5th! I love this family! They have gotten alot of crap in the past but they seem to be a real loving and genuine couple. They have their ups and downs like we all do but they do it in the spotlight. I am kinda over the whole Candie and Tori issue but hopefully they won't focus so much attention on that this season. I can't wait for it to begin!

Tomorrow is a new day with a much happier post. I promise.

When we first got Adrienne she was an absolute breeze to train. We had very few issues and all of which were easy to solve. She didn't stay in her crate long and it seemed like (I say this now) she was only in training for 2-3 weeks and done. She slept through the night, cuddled with us in bed, only chewed the furniture once and that was it. Only flaw...she is a compulsive licker. Easy!
Like I said Adrienne and Brixie are two totally different dogs. I absolutely adore Brixie! She brings out the playful side in us all, including Adrienne. She loves to fetch, sprawl out on the couch with her head on the arm rest (its too darn cute) and is observant to everything. She is also one super intelligent dog! As a puppy they like to test our limits, see how far they can go and what they can and cannot get away with. Well Brixie has definitely been testing us. We have been blessed with amazing neighbors, this is something that is soooo hard to find these days. Well during the day if Ryan is working from home he will come and let the dogs out of their crates to stretch, do their business and play with Ryan & Suz's dog Zoey. Well lately when Ryan has been going over there Brixie has be greeting him at the door. We too have come home to find Brixie like this acting as if nothing is wrong. Yep, we have an escape artist on our hands. This has happened on numerous occasions and often times leaving us stumped as the crate door is still locked. Do we have a magical dog on our hands? She has even figured out a way to bring the door inside of her crate instead of opening outwards. Seriously!? Most of the time she is good and when we do a search of the house everything is fine. But...she has chewed up a total of 3 pairs of my shoes! Not Chris' but MINE! What can I say, she's a girl so she likes my shoes better. But really! Chris' shoes can be laying around ALL over the house and I have one pair hidden and out of sight and she can find them. Not cool! Chris will laugh but only for a short time because its now costing him money buying me new shoes!
So last night we decided to put the heavy duty tie wraps around the edges of the crate so that she can't pull them out of socket. But will this work? The only way she can get out now is through the door. So we will see tonight when we get home if this plan has worked. Wish us luck! Although we face these challenges its been a great learning experience for us. She is just a puppy and testing her limits. I love her regardless and wouldn't trade her for anything. That goes for both our little ones!
Do any of you dog lovers have any tips you would like to share? I am all ears! For now though here are a few pictures from this past weekend of our girls!
Brixie and Zoey taking a break from wrestling. Zoey is half Lab half Great Dane and almost 2 years old. Brixie is 7 months old and getting up there to Zoey's size. Wowzers!
And I can't forget about Adrienne! When Brixie and Zoey are playing she likes to stay out of the way and at the top of the couch. She has no interest in getting in between those two, lol! Summer haircut coming soon!
So far I am doing good keeping up with my posting! I still have a lot to share so be sure to stay tuned this week! xoxo

As I mentioned yesterday, Chris finally got rid of his p.o.s. and we bought him his first manly truck! We both absolutely love it and it has so much room its unbelievable! Chris has been keeping it clean and enjoying every second of it. It's his first time to have a brand new car smell (one of the greatest parts of buying something new). I am so thrilled that we were able to get this for him and its already come in handy when we had to load up all the plants and mulch!
Ok so my time is up and I must get back to work. More pictures to come this week and more things to check off our never ending to-do list! xoxo

Alot has been going on in our world so I am just going to put it in bullet points for you. Expect me to go into further detail this week!
- Chris finally got a brand new manly truck! Goodbye P.O.S.!
- We are planning a crawfish boil for the beginning of April. The turnout is looking great and we are soooo excited to have everyone over!
- Chris and my dad completed the workbench in the garage. We now have a clean and organized workstation!
- Brixie has gotten huge and is one smart dog. She has figured out several ways to escape her crate and chewed up a few pairs of our shoes. Knock on wood...she hasn't touched the furniture yet.
- We just redid the front landscaping. We dug up ugly plants, added new pretty ones with more color as well as mulched the beds. Chris also put down the weed & feed in the front yard. This week we tackle the back!
- I have classes starting tomorrow every Tuesday and Thursday till the end of April.
- Easter is almost here and I have been soooo ready to slide on my white pants!
- I was thoroughly enjoying the weather (flip flop and dresses) until mother nature decided she wanted to throw us for a loop and give us freezing cold weather. Luckily tomorrow it will be sunny and warm again!
- Our calendar is booked solid on the weekends till mid-June! CRAZY and a little overwhelming!
Ok that is enough for now! More details to come later. I hope you all had an amazing weekend and a non-crazy Monday (wishful thinking right?)!
