Puppy Breath

No one had a better weekend than this girl (a.k.a ME). Promise. Below you will find the reasons why. First off, it all began with Wednesday night.  Let me explain…

As husband was browsing the internet, he stumbled upon some puppies for sale. Some really cute ones. Some really sweet, adorable ones. And there was only one female left. We wanted a female. We had been going back and forth about getting a puppy for months now. For a year, really. So he called the breeder up and told her we wanted the last female. Then, Friday after work, we drove three hours to Georgia to get her. When we saw her, our hearts melted. Here we are on the way to get her…can you tell I was a little excited?






How cute is that face? PRETTY DARN CUTE. She was so good through the whole car ride home. As if the cuteness couldn’t get any greater, look at this…



We named her Bailey (after my favorite drink *wink wink*) JK, people (but not really).

She is our first puppy together. Our first fur baby. Husband has always had his dog, Capone, since I met him. He’s had him since he was 16 years old. And we love him like a son. He’s is, seriously, THE best dog I’ve ever known. And no puppy could ever take his place in our hearts. But Bailey is our first PUPPY TOGETHER. So it’s a new and exciting experience for all three of us, Husband, myself, and Capone 🙂



How sweet are those paws? I can’t handle it.

But adding a new puppy to our family is not the only awesomeness that happened this past weekend. My sister also drove down from North Carolina to run in the Color Me Rad 5K with me! She has participated in quite a few 5K’s, but this was my first….and it was AMAZING. I was so stoked. Who doesn’t want to get all sweaty and hot and out of breath while strangers pelt you with cornstarch and chalk as you run by? (That sounded sarcastic, but for real, I REALLY loved it. We both had so much fun, we’re going to make it an annual tradition for us. I love my sisters so much, this is something we will always look forward too every year now. Something we can always do together!



Here’s our colorful, sweaty, sexy selves. Check those shades. NOICE, eh?

My sister also brought her ADORABLE son with her and we all enjoyed the long time tradition of coloring Easter eggs together. He LOVED it…look at the excitement on his face…



The look of pride in his eyes is priceless. “This is the most beautiful blue egg in the WORLD” Just look at it!”

He is the cutest little boy. Not to mention he is also a baby genius. He’s not even two yet, but he knows ALL where all of his body parts are and what they are called, AND he knows what sounds a dog, cat, bear, horse, sheep, and cow make. Genius.

The finished product.



Not sure why half of them ended up cracked. We’re a clumsy family.

So concludes pretty much the greatest weekend ever. New puppy, color runs, family time, road trips to GA, egg coloring. And this work week is only FOUR days long. Which means a THREE DAY WEEKEND. HALLELUJAH.
