We drove over to the bar on a cool/rainy Sunday morning for an exclusive puppy photo shoot for the calendar. Since Melvin is Mr. November, he wore his cozy vest and posed by a group of pumpkins. It’s only appropriate for the month of November, right?!
Melvin was so focused on the birds, squirrels, and people passing by that made it a little difficult to capture a relaxed little Melv. Sit, stay, down… All commands out the window! I must say, he was not the natural I was thinking he was going to be. I think he may need some more practice! Here are some pics I thought were hilariously awkward. He’s totally my dog!
Such a goofball, that one!
After our shoot, we stayed a little longer to wait on our friends Ashley and Miss Molly who also had a photo shoot that day. Molly was picked as Miss April and her pictures came out so adorable!! I mean, she had a flower crown! I can’t even.
We walked next door to Banger’s for brunch and shared a huge mimosa between the two of us. I ordered the french toast and Ashley got the chicken and waffles. Both equally delicious.
After brunch, we made our way back home for some lounging and housework. Such a great morning!
I’ll be sure to post any updates about the calendars and when they are ready. I’m thinking maybe give some away as Christmas gifts?!?
September is coming to an end so I thought I’d finally share what I’ve been up to lately. It’s been one fun month of celebrating!! Fall is my favorite time of year and I always feel like September kicks off the season! Even though we’re still in the 90’s here in Texas… That’s beside the point!

Two days ago I came across this buzzfeed. It made me cry. A lot.
It reminded me of my dog Lucky, the dog we had growing up. She had three legs too. It also reminded me of our black lab/pit mix, Mac, who would also love to eat cheeseburgers on his last day. It made me think of our dog Melvin, the first dog that’s ever truly been mine. But it especially made me think of how much I will miss them when they’re gone.
Dogs are so special to me. Mac and Melvin in particular. It scares me to think about a time when they won’t be with us anymore. I’ll miss the times when Mac does everything in his power to avoid my kisses, and times when Melvin smothers us with licks. I will miss taking them on walks, separately of course, because they can’t handle walking together. I’ll miss when Mac grunts at me and when he gives me cuddles. I’ll miss Melvin’s playfulness and his hugs.
But for now, I’m going to enjoy as much time as I can with these monsters. Dogs are the bestest friends a person can have!
