Tail Wagging Tuesday

Hey lovelies!

I found this cute little linky and thought I would join in! This should help brighten my day since I have been having the worst cold and cramps today. :( Since I love my pets I am excited to talk about them!

Both Belle and Cali love to lay on the bed when we are in there.

I'm so glad they are able to lay together now and not attack each other.

Belle also likes to lay on top of the dresser whenever there is crap on top of it.

When we go to sleep Cali has to sleep in her kennel because otherwise she would try to play with Belle all night or try to lay on the bed with us and our bed is way too small for that! haha.

This picture is from when we first got her so she looks so small! 

Belle sleeps on the bed with us and lounges out!

I just love both of my babies!

Come back and visit!

Marvelous Monday`

Hello everyone!!

I hope everyone is having a good day despite the rain we are getting here in DFW! I've had such a good weekend and I was not ready to start back at school but this is my last full week of the semester!! It really has flown by but i'm ready for it to be over.

This weekend my sister and her husband came into town and she had her 2nd baby shower! I had such a good time planning it and getting everything ready for baby boy. He is already so spoiled by everyone! They pretty much got all the necessities for right now and just need to get a couple more things before he is born. She had 7 weeks to go and I can't wait to meet him and find out his name.

Friday we all went to dinner at Houlihans and we shared a bunch of small plates. I had a good time catching up with my sister Lori and feeling the baby move! I forgot to take pictures that night! Oops!

Saturday was Lori's Texas baby shower and i think it turned out really good. We had a slight cowboy theme because we didn't want to go overboard with a theme. I made the cupcakes and the diaper cake and my sister painted her a rocking horse! Lori was so happy and she loves everything. It was a small group of about 25 people so everyone got the chance to talk and catch up on things since Lori doesn't live here anymore and they don't get to see her often.

Me, Mere, Lori and our mom.

Sisters! Can you tell?? haha.

All the hosts! We had so many that we were able to get her the jogging stroller she wanted.

The diaper cake I made!

The rocking horse. The colors match the baby room.

My cupcakes!!

Each color matches the nursery.

We put the flowers in boots so that it would be more of a western theme.

We made Sonic Ocean Water and put orange food coloring with Sprite.

The tulips started opening and they were so pretty.

Me and Mere

There was a fondue station.

And frosted grapes.

And citrus water.

Opening presents.

and again.

In front of our pool!

After the shower we all went to dinner with the boys and it was so nice outside that we were able to sit on the patio. Too bad it started raining and so we had to go in. The waiter probably thought we were trying to skip out on the check! haha. 

Sunday we all went to church and it was a wonderful service. The choir sang beautifully and it made me realize I want to join a church choir again sometime. I miss singing in a group. We then had a feast after church made by my parents. We had lamb, country ham, roasted potatoes, deviled eggs, spring mix salad with apples, pecans, feta cheese and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. We also had a pickle tray, corn, and rolls. For dessert my mom made a cake and we had lemon bars and cupcakes. It was so delicious!

Me and Ryan!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and remembered why we celebrate this day.

Have a good week!!

Good afternoon ladies!!
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather if you live in the Dallas area! I'm wearing shorts and it feels great!

I'm linking up with Jamie today to share my loves for the week!

I'm loving that we had a reunion for my drill team at the show for this year and my bestie came into town for it! We have a spring show every year and this year it was the 20th anniversary of our team so all the alumni was invited to the show and a tea. My bestie Erica that goes to the University of Texas drove down to see it!!

Some of my high school friends!

Me and my sister Meredith! This picture has weird lighting.

Yay! I love them so much!

I'm loving these shoes that I bought for the show!!

They are Guess wedges from DSW. :)

I'm loving the new Bravo show Pregnant in Heels.

It is so funny and those women are crazy!! I don't really know why I decided to add ANOTHER show to the thousands that I already watch but that's ok!

I also love that United States of Tara is back on. If you don't know that show you should definitely watch it. The show is about a woman with multiple personalities, but it is on Showtime so it is kinda vulgar at times. 

I'm loving that I finally got to register for my classes for next semester! It is so stressful and i'm glad it is over, at least for another semester.

I'm always loving Ryan and my pets!

I would like to go back here please!

Belle eating stupid grass and Cali and her black spotted tongue. :)

Have a lovely day!!

Top Two Tuesday

Good morning!

I'm linking up today again for Top 2 Tuesday with Taylor!

I decided I will do both alcoholic and everyday drinks because I don't really drink anything besides water most of the time.
Alcoholic Drinks
Strawberry Daiquiri 

Yum!! If I can make a yummy drink at home I would choose to make this one. I can usually only have about 2 because they are so sweet and filling. I sure do love them though.

Vodka Sprite

If I could get drinks at a bar or restaurant I would choose this one. I don't like beer or wine because I don't like the taste of alcohol yet so I choose to get these. I know that I will get used to the taste eventually but for now I can't stand it!


If I have any sort of soda it would be Sprite. I don't really like to drink caffeine because I don't want to get reliant on it, same reason I don't want to start to drink coffee. 

But most often I just drink water!!

We usually buy Ozarka brand water. They seem to have the most durable bottles and the labels don't rip off like the Kroger brand waters. 


On another note, look how cute my pets are!

I decided to let  Belle out with Cali if it is nice outside but I am scared she will run away so I only let her on the patio if i'm out there with her. Cali loves that Belle is out there with her!

Kisses! :)

Have a good week!
