What's New With You? July

Happy Thursday everyone! I haven't been a part of a link up in fooooooreeeeever so I thought linking up with sweet Kristen from See You in Porridge today would be fun! I figured a What's New With You link up was also appropriate as I have only been in the blog-o-sphere sporadically over the last few months.


I started a new job mid-May so my summer really didn't start until a few weeks ago. I'd spent the rest of May and most of June getting acclimated to my new job and new schedule. Summer really started when my sister flew out to see me June 22-June 25.


My sweet little sis and I went to a local fair, visited the Downtown Market, saw some movies, got pedicures, and she helped me pet sit!


The hubs turned 35 ya'll. THIRTY FIVE! How the heck did that happen? I met him when he was 23 and married him when he was 24, and NOW HE IS THIRTY FIVE. Here's a sweet throwback photo of us when we were just dating!


Happy Birthday, my love!


Speaking of birthdays...


My brother turned 36! I'm really thankful to have a big brother, and even more thankful he created this cute family!

Oh yeah, and another one...


I turned 34 on Tuesday! I'm looking forward to a year of fun. I want adventure and to visit new places and to dance! I would love less stress.






Nick got me pet cam for my birthday which I have been asking for FOREVER. Because I'm obsessed with my dog. Now I can see my little Scout when I'm not home. Here he is freaking out about being in his crate...



Oh my gawd! He's just so sad. It's breaks my heart!

You may not have noticed I made some changes to the blog! I bought a template from Etsy and installed and customized it myself. Can't believe I figured it out. Check out some of my favorite features to the right. The shop, give, and love buttons will take you to some of my favorite things. I also love that I can feature a past post! I also designed and added a new header!


Hope everyone had a great fourth o' July!

  3. I want a dog cam but then I don't. If something happened, I'd be unable to do anything! LOL

    1. I know what you mean. Scout literally cries all day in there and it's super stressful for me. I'm going to leave him out of the crate tomorrow when I go to work and see what happens.

  7. Happy Birthday!
    I would love a year of less stress :)

    I *want* a pet cam but don't think I could handle it. I would feel awful and/or just want to go home.

    1. Thank you! Everyone needs a stress-free year! Scout is crate-trained, sorta, because he hates it. I've found all he does is cry and bark all day. It stresses me out!

  11. I love the white boots you're wearing in the pic of you in the purple jacket. Also, new blog designs are so exciting. I love the changes you made! It looks similar to mine...which I got on Etsy. Happy Belated Birthday! Also, is the whole blogger not notifying you of comments/allowing a mechanism to respond thing driving you crazy or what? I'm so annoyed! I think most blogspots are having issues.
