Doggie Wall Decals

I was browsing Etsy today and I ran across this... I laughed out loud! The dog is peeing in the house, Ha! I have never seen anything like this before! I found it to be very interesting, so I continued my search and apparently there is a whole world of dog wall decals out there. Here are a few more I found.
I can get on board with this one, it's pretty cute!
I linked the pictures to their Esty shop, if you want to check it out. Enjoy!

Whimsy Doxie

Persnickety Pelican (love that name) is a wonderful shop on Etsy. They offer this cute whimsical dachshund on a wide variety of products, such as bags, cards, soap, and pot holders. My personal favorite is the throw pillow.
This pillow would be a super cute Valentine's Day gift for a doxie lover!

And let's not forget this dishtowel that will match perfectly in my kitchen! Now if I could just get them to make a black and white piebald dachshund. I have the perfect model, Callie the Doxie ;) They have so much to offer, check out their etsy store, Persnickety Pelican.

Buckets of Fun

Thank you Pottery Barn Kids for these wonderful canvas buckets! I bought Callie the small bucket couple years ago, but now her toys are overflowing! Everywhere you step there is a stuffed monkey, tennis ball, or something that contains a squeaker. That made it official, we needed to upgrade to the bigger bucket, asap. I ordered the red bucket (of course) and labeled it "Dog Toys", it turned out so cute! Love it! They are also on sale people, you should jump all over this. What a super cute way to organize your dog toys ;) Funny side story: When I was checking out it asked what age child I was shopping for (little survey I guess). Well, I didn't really know how to answer that question. Maybe they could add 3 year old wiener dog as an option!

AVATAR

Have yall seen this movie yet? Justin and I saw it last night, it was awesome! You really should go see it, I highly recommend it. It might be far fetched for some, but I really enjoy things like that. Obviously, since I have a slight obsession with Twilight. I use that the term "slight" very loosely, truth be told, I should probably be checked into some Twilight rehab center, HA! Don't even get me started on Twilight, everyone needs a little Edward in their lives ;) Anyway, back on topic, AVATAR was the most visually stimulating movie I have ever seen. You know it made you ponder what it would be like to live in a world that "glowed" at night, or maybe even the possibility of a pet dragon, ok maybe you didn't go that far, haha! Truly though, the effects are amazing, it's a must see! I will be headed back to the theatre before too long.

Just Maui'd!

Aloha everyone! Here is the slide show from our honeymoon in Maui. I'll warn you now, I took a ton of scenery pictures. Everything was so beautiful, I was trying to capture the memory of it all ;) Justin talks about going back all the time, maybe I can get him to take me back for our anniversary. I should probably start working on that now, ha!

Hello Long Lost Friends!

It's been such a long time since my last blog and man have I missed it! Let me update you on everything that has gone on in my life since April, I've been a very busy girl!

Justin and I got married on October 24, 2009!
One word to describe our wedding...Perfect! It was everything I wanted and more. I plan on posting a slide show of wedding pictures, so stay tuned!

Then we were off to Maui for our honeymoon. Beautiful! I highly recommend vacationing in Maui. We lounged on the beach most days, snorkeled, and drove the "Road to Hana". Definitely rent a jeep for that drive (so you can take the top off), it takes all day but it's worth it :) The scenery is amazing, lots of waterfalls to see! I'll get the honeymoon pics on a slide show soon. We also bought our first house! That was a task to find the "perfect" one, but we did! We had to do a few updates (paint, scrape popcorn off the ceilings, and texture), but now it looks amazing! Here it is all decked out for Christmas. Did I mention it snowed on Christmas Eve in Texas, that's a first! You know I looked like a fool all bundled up standing in the middle of the street taking pictures of the house. Ha!

There you have it! The wedding planning, house buying, and remodeling have kept me very busy the past few months. Here we are in 2010 and I have finally slowed down long enough to start blogging again, yea! As for Callie, she is doing fabulous!
