Highlights

Standard

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 Schechers 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 😦 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.

Weekly Recap #2

Standard

February 23rd we were under a tornado watch so I got to leave work at lunch time. It didn’t take too long for the bad weather to start and then the sirens went off so Phoebe and I huddled in the bath tub.

Luckily we didn’t have any damage although others were not so lucky as we were.

My dad’s birthday was that weekend as well as a friend’s wedding reception so I went back home to celebrate.

 

 

My Brother’s Birthday Weekend

Standard

Phoebe and I went walking on the walking track at the bluff. We missed the Mardi Gras Parade the night before but the floats were parked near the bluff so we still got to see some of them.

 

 

My mom made a delicious fruit pizza and my brother’s girlfriend brought a cookie cake.

We ordered Mexican and then a bunch of my brother’s friends came over to hang out. My brother’s girlfriend filled my brother’s truck with balloons.

My Mom’s Birthday Weekend

Standard

I tried to surprise my mom by coming in early but I ended up slipping up and she figured it out. We went out to dinner and it was really good even though I still had to follow my diet. My mom and I both ordered grilled red fish while my brother and my dad had steaks.

I gave my potato and my roll to my parents because I didn’t want to be tempted.

The next day I played fetch with the pups….well Phoebe fetched and Tank just chased after her lol.

She dropped the ball in the water bowl. Apparently she thought it needed to cool off too.

I also managed to visit my friend Niki while I was in town since she moved almost 2 hours from where my parents live.

My mom and I managed to eat at our favorite Chinese place before I left. I got 2 fortunes and neither one was good!

Overall it was a great weekend! I got to see my family and catch up with my friend, which I really missed. Phoebe got to play with some puggles and her cousin. I managed to eat some great food and not kill my diet 🙂

Life Lately

Standard

Last one for today I promise!!! Work has been stressful lately and I have started running again so that helps. I’m currently on week 3 of C25k and hope to finally be able to run a 5k by the end of the year. One of the local animal shelters is having a 5k next month or you have the option to walk 2 mi….pets are welcome of course so I’m debating if I want to try to do the 5k, walk the 2 mi by myself or walk the 2 mi with Phoebe. Phoebe and I have been walking more but I’m not sure if she will walk the 2 mi but she may since other dogs will be present I don’t know.

Before my 1st run this summer.

I’ve been trying to keep my plants alive but with the heat index being 105-110 degrees each day it has been hard. My Marigolds seem to be indestructible though.IMG_2408

My dad and I spent an entire morning trying to fix the spot in my yard where my sewage line was replaced. We re-distributed the dirt, put some top soil down then some sand and finally some sod pieces he made from the edge of my yard. It doesn’t look so good now, which I guess is due to the heat but here is a picture of it once we got done

.IMG_2329

I have recently become obsessed with succulent plants and cacti and I really want to get some for my office and windowsills at home. I think it’s ironic because my great grandmother, who I’m named after had every cacti known to man on her patio when I was growing up and those are the only plants that I remember her ever having.

For those of you saying shut up already and get to the pug pictures that you have been hoarding since last month here you go!

My parents brought me an old desk which won’t fit where I planned to put it without some serious maneuvering so for right now it’s in my living room…..it’s kind of growing on me so it may end up staying here idk. I’m happy that I have a designated working area so hopefully I will be able to blog more since it will easier with everything in one place.

Phoebe isn’t really a fan of me sitting at the desk though because she wants to sit in my lap.

When I have refused to let her sit in my lap…I’m awful I know….she has decided to sleep underneath the desk so I may end up getting her a doggy bed to put under there.

Phoebe also got a bath yesterday since I bought her some furminator deshedding shampoo. I had already been using the furminator conditioner with her other shampoo but I didn’t know you were supposed to leave it on for 5 minutes so I tried that yesterday ha. She was tired of sitting there by the time we got to the conditioning part….

I went to a surprise birthday party for my co-worker’s cousin and it was fun.

She was very surprised ha

Also I’m almost done reading the last book in the Game of Thrones series. I’m going to be sad since the show isn’t running right now and I’ll probably have to wait another 10 years before George R. Martin cranks out another book for the series!

Phoebe’s 4th Birthday!!

Standard

May 28th was Phoebe’s birthday and I baked her pup cakes the night before so I would only have to put icing on them the next morning.

I used peanut butter, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder, honey and matchstick carrots
