I'm Back...

Hello everyone, it's been a while! I finally have internet! I feel like it has been forever since the last time I had a post. I hope everyone has been having a fabulous week. Things have been busy for me. Figuring out my new commute has been quite the adventure. I now have to take a train (which is like an hour) and then a 15 minute bus ride to get to work. It's a lot different from my 10 minute walk to work I previously had. But it's worth it because I love my new house. We're still working on fixing it up. The kitchen has been quite the task with the wallpaper. Alex is patching up the walls and sanding them so that we can paint. It's exciting decorating a home. My two new dogs Scooby and Shaggy are fitting in just perfectly. Things are slowly going back to normal.

These are some pictures from before I moved out of my apartment. This dress is simple yet so cute. I love the cut and style of it. It also helps that there are pockets! And how adorable is that collar?!

Operation Redo Kitchen

Happy Halloween and Friday! Halloween has come up so fast on me. With all this house stuff going on, I've lost track of time. I don't have any Halloween plans this weekend except working on my kitchen. It's the first thing I want to get done in this place. It had wallpaper throughout the room that we've been working on taking down. Wallpaper is so difficult and time consuming to remove. I feel like no matter how much I remove there's still so much left. Once we get it all gone, we can paint. We've already been testing out a light mint color on the fireplace in the kitchen. It's difficult being back at work because all I think about is what I could be doing to the house. I hope we're able to get a lot done this weekend, and I'm excited to get our new bed and washer and dryer!! I'm so happy this place is already feeling like home! Have a wonderful and fun Halloween weekend! Thanks for visiting!!! xo

Second Chances

Hello and happy Thursday! I know I've been kind of missing lately and I apologize. I'm without internet which is making things difficult but I should be getting it shortly. Once that is up and running, I will be back posting as usual and able to read each and every one of your fabulous blogs! 
So not only have Alex and I purchased a house but as of last night we have also adopted two more dogs named Scooby and Shaggy. They were surrendered to a rescue shelter after years of neglect from their previous owner and have some medical issues. Alex has wanted to take in an older dog and give it a nice life. But we ended up getting two because Scooby and Shaggy have spent their lives together and can't be separated. They are the sweetest dogs I've ever met and we are so in love with them already. It's so sad to know one of the vets wanted to put them to sleep because of their issues and thought no one would want them. Everyone deserves a chance and shouldn't be discounted because of a few issues. We're so excited to be able to provide them a loving home. If you're wondering, that brings us to four dogs, one fish, and one turtle. No more new pets for a while.
