From peanut butter to bacon to pumpkin this list has a … [Read more...]

Puppy Love Valentine for Kids – Heart Shaped Dog Craft

I love making Valentine's Day projects with my boys. When Johnny was little, he would come home with the cutest little crafts from daycare. When I had my other boys, I always made sure to make my favorites with them. This heart-shaped dog craft is always on the list. One year, when Johnny was in elementary school, we made these for his entire class in a smaller size. This craft is fun for all … [Read more...]

One Year After Taking the Purina One 28-Day Challenge

This post is sponsored by Lunchbox about Purina One available at Sams Club. All opinions are my own. See this guy? This is Charlie and he's my furbaby. I only want what's best for him. When I first got him I thought the best meant the most expensive things, especially where his diet was concerned. At least until we tried the Purina One 28-Day Challenge a little over a year ago. Charlie … [Read more...]

Keeping my #GreatDog Healthy with Purina® Pro Plan® Fitness

I love my dog. He really is a great dog. I never thought I'd say that. I remember when we first got him and how much I fought getting him. Now, I can't imagine not having him. Charlie, our family dog, has been such a great addition. I really thought getting a puppy just a couple weeks before having a baby was going to be too much but it worked out really well. Charlie is a Morkie. If you haven't … [Read more...]

Where’s Waldo Dog Costume and Childs Ghostbuster all from BuyCostumes.com

I'm such a procrastinator lately it's horrible. One thing I've learned now is that Halloween Costumes fly off shelves. Who knew? Well, now I'm telling you. It's also a lot harder to find specific items when your kids already know what they want in advance. Gavin, for instance, likes to do his own thing. He just loved this Ghostbuster Child Costume the moment he saw it.  I ain't afraid of no … [Read more...]

Cesar Meaty Selects For Our Best Friend

I remember the day we talked about getting a dog. I was horrified. I have spent all my life avoiding dogs and here my family was begging me to bring one into my home at 8 months pregnant. What were they thinking?? After some serious begging by not only my kids but the hubby I found us making an appointment to look at some puppies. They had a few but I was interested in the golden female they had. … [Read more...]

#ShareTheJoy with Cesar Savory Delights and WIN!

As you know we didn't just welcome Sawyer into our family this year but Charlie too! It's been quite the experience having both a newborn and a puppy all at the same time. I've had dogs growing up but never had an attachment to them so I never really paid much attention to how they ate, played, or did anything for that matter. I had to learn it all and we're still learning over six months … [Read more...]

Meet Charlie. His Story.

This time last week a dog was no where on our radar. Well, at least not mine. It all started Saturday. My husband woke up and announced he was done sitting home. He couldn't handle it any longer. My husband had surgery last Monday and was down for the count recovering. He is a workaholic and was dying just sitting around. We all got ready and decided to run some errands. Remember that fridge we … [Read more...]
