My 2nd job!

I have a 2nd job!
I count my 1st job as being a mother, wife, housekeeper, chef, dog sitter, fish feeder, and the list goes on...

Anywho, I have a seasonal job at Victorias Secret!
Tomorrow I get my first paycheck in 3years!
My first job pays in hugs, kisses, and the occasional loss of sanity.

Although next week is black friday so I'm sure I'll lose my sanity at my 2nd job too.

Will the Christmas bells ringing in my ear, I have to say
is to be debt free.
boring, I know but this debt is holding us back,
and I'm tired of feeling the anchor at my feet.

I'm so excited, I feel useful!
I feel like we will finally be able to make a dent into our snowball!

I'm proud of this blog, its finally reached 100 followers!
I'll be starting to really work on this blog for the new years.
I want to start doing giveaways because I know how it feels to get something for free, and its the free things that really can be a great blessing.

I ran today for a very short time, then did my treadmill incline training. During the run all I could think about was this picture.
I love see a little humor in my attempt to tame my FLABulous figure.

Ok I'm finished rambling...
Thanks for reading!

I'm Back!!!!

This is Riker's first after-surgery picture...

and look at him now!

You can see a scar line from his surgery but he is good as new!

It was alot of work, since for the first month he wasn't aloud to run, jump, or play. How do you keep a puppy from playing??? It wasn't easy let me tell you, but he is a great puppy.
He is about 40-50lbs now and eats as much as his 130lb mom!
I'm going to have to adjust the food budget, alot!

Its good to be back, there are a ton of good giveaways out there
so start searching now!

I used Twitter and Google to search for any specific giveaway to enter.
Just be sure to include
Name of item
Date - for example: Sept 2011
and the words "blog giveaway"

Twitter is easier just search the name and include the word "giveaway"

Have a great day!

Puppy Love

I've been missing from blogging for a few months now.

We have been very busy with the puppies and now we have one puppy left.
We still have 4 puppies at home though, two are getting picked up later this month.
One we are keeping because he broke his leg.
His name is Riker and we are already in love with him!

and one puppy is available to a loving home.
They are 10 weeks old! I can't believe its been 10 weeks already!

Anyways, I probably wont be blogging much this summer.
Riker will be needing extra care and we have alot of summer fun planned since we haven't been able to do much yet.

Here are some pictures!
Aren't they cute!

Saphira had her puppies!


6 girls
5 boys

5 blues
6 blacks

I could not have dreamed of a better litter!

She had her first one underneath the shed!
Silly mommy, thinking that was her nest.
Thats why one of the puppies looks dirty, because he is!
He was covered in red mud, and Saphira too.
Sorry for the bad pictures, my camera isn't a very good indoor camera.
I'll post more pictures as they get bigger.

Happy Tuesday!

we had our honeymoon

It was gorgeous! The pictures don't do it justice, it was amazing!

Yep, thats a Japanese Steakhouse!
Which has the best Japanese I have ever tasted.

Jacuzzi tub on our balcony!

This picture looks exactly like our room we stayed in!
Sorry I couldn't find a picture of the bathroom, but trust me it was gorgeous too!

Not us, but we were smiling in all the pictures!

Did I mention the water features are throughout the entire resort!
Like a little Venice without the boats

Our anniversary is coming up in July

Happy Friday!

*I was not paid for this review, nor was I asked to review it.
I'm just sharing my honest love for Gran Melia with you*

Food and Me Tuesday

When I grow up I wanna be...

A Pescatarian

Which is someone who eats fish but no meat.

Mmm... seafood!

BUT with our current small budget

Meat is cheaper

One day, I will live out my dream of being a full time

I've never met a fish I didn't want to eat, well maybe Nemo
but thats because he's too small and cute

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

It's Monday!! Bring on the Butterflies!

When I visited San Juan, Puerto Rico
the most beautiful shop there was The Butterfly People.
If you want beautiful art, try this store.
The pictures on their website do not compare to the real deal.
These pieces of art are truly beautiful.
