Hey PeTA…Leave Our Dog Out of Your Propaganda


I couldn’t have said this better myself! I hate BSL laws! Any dog can be trained to be mean .


Garlic Salmon


I cut this recipe down since I was only using one piece of salmon. It was good and it only took 10 minutes so that’s always good. I got this from the frugal girls Pinterest.

Recipes I’ve Tried Lately


1st up is a Chicken Bacon Ranch Bake from Easy Peasy Pleasin. This is by far the best recipe I’ve ever tried from Pinterest so I definitely didn’t get tired of the leftovers. I used a rotisserie chicken so it was easier to make.

I used the other half of the rotisserie chicken to make Italian Tortellini Pasta Salad. I accidentally grabbed spinach and ricotta filled ravioli but it was still delicious!!!!

I don’t have a picture of the next recipe I tried, which was onion and mayo porkchops. The recipe said to bake them for 25 min but I used bone in porkchops, which apparently makes a difference. I had to cook mine longer because they weren’t quite done at 25 min but it was very good.

Last but not least I tried Healthy Protein Waffles from Damn Delicious. I was skeptical on how good these were going to be with cottage cheese in them but they were really good! It made plenty so I had breakfast for the whole week, which is definitely a great thing! They definitely kept me full until lunch time. I topped mine with some Mississippi made pure cane syrup ­čśő

Products I Like 


I never knew a beauty blender existed until I received an e-mail from tarte. I didn’t want to pay $16 so I ended up finding one at Target for $5 and so far I really like it. I feel like my under eye concealer looks too caked on when I put it on with my fingers but it looks much better using my new beauty blender.

My other awesome Target purchase was cherry scented Batiste dry shampoo. I don’t like how it flaked but that is really the only bad thing I can say about this product. I like the cherry smell and I can actually run my fingers through my hair without that funky dry shampoo feeling. It’s a little expensive for the size of the can but it is well worth it.

Mexican Beef Tator Tot Casserole & Adult Root Beer Float


The Mexican Beef Tator Tot Recipe is definitely going to be a new staple for me! It was super easy and super delicious! Next time I’m going to cut the red bell pepper into smaller pieces. I added guacamole and sour cream as my toppings.

My cousin told me about making an adult root beer float using Not Your Father’s Root Beer so I had to try it! I kept sipping on the root beer and I finally had to pour it over the vanilla ice cream before there wasn’t any left ha. It tastes exactly like root beer and I actually couldn’t taste the alcohol flavor until I mixed it with the ice cream. Definitely going to make more of these as well.



Sorry I slacked off on posting again so I’m going to give you some highlights!

Phoebe’s 5th Birthday was May 28th and she racked up on presents. I felt guilty buying her treats and toys that she would have to wait for so I had to buy her a just because present lol.

Memorial Day:


I attempted to start walking Phoebe again and she ended up having an allergic reaction to grass I think….thank goodness for Benadryl and itch relief shampoo!! It cleared up after a couple of days and we haven’t had any problems since.


I got some Bob’s by┬áSchechers shoes that have pugs on them and they donate some of the proceeds to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah so it’s a win win!


My co-worker drew me a picture of Mel the Pug from Secret Life of Pets. I can’t wait to see it!


Phoebe and I went to the Secret Life of Pets Event at Petsmart, which was dissapointing because they didn’t have any Mel stuff ­čśŽ Phoebe got some new collars and a new life jacket, which barely fits so she is going to have to lose some weight.


I found a Pug Doodle Book with stickers and a Secret Life of Pets lunch box!

We went to my family reunion for the 4th of July and Phoebe was very patriotic for about 5 min then she got muddy lol. It was hot and my Dad had to pull 3 ticks off of Phoebe but overall we had a great time.
