Even with their desperate need for haircuts, we couldn't not dress up our little pups for Halloween. They wear clothes on a regular basis and really don't seem to mind it! Especially now that we live in a snowball, our little lovies depend on their tiny sweaters to stay warm. Found these little costumes at Target and couldn't help myself.. Happy Halloween!
Holy cow, it's been 2 years! Looking back, this past year definitely seems busier and the crazy stories seem less eventful! I suppose it's a blessing either way, right?
On this day, I can't believe I actually have 47 followers! 47 people who actually care about what I have to say.. Quite an honor. When I first started it all, I thought my only followers would be Justin, my best friends, and my mom! Thanks so much for reading, lovies!
By the way, I do have some exciting news..
I will be launching my new party-planning website soon! A lot of things have been in the works in developing the logo and the starter-site and I can't wait to show everyone! I'm pretty excited. I plan to keep going with this blog as my personal blog, but will eventually be launching a party-blog as well. I promise to continue to keep you posted.. just hang in there!
Since the move, J and I have been slam-busy with so much happening that we haven't had a chance to visit good ol' Wisconsin.. until now! It's been way too long since we've seen his family, so it was really great to be able to throw this one together at the last minute. Thanks to Macy's, I was finally given a couple days off in a row (in a ROW!) to celebrate our 3-year anniversary, so we decided to take advantage of my freedom and spend it in Wisconsin. We made the 6 hour drive, pup-free and it was definitely a great little weekend!
