Puppy Fever

My goodness I have the cutest new Nephew Puppy in the world!

My little brother came home from college for memorial day weekend and picked up this fabulous new addition on his way home.  Bentley is a half golden retriever / half lab - six week old puppy and boy is he full of energy.  I just love his puppy waddle, puppy breathe, puppy cuddles and everything soft and sweet that he is.  I love seeing how happy he makes my brother too.

Welcome to the family Bentley Boy! We sure think you are the cutest!

Summer Bucket List

Summer 2011 Memories

Summer is fast approaching and the common trend I have noticed is the lists of summer fun and mini bucket lists friends and bloggers have been compiling. Most of my friends that are making these lists have children -  but who says I can't join in the fun and jot down all of my Summer 2012 "to-do's".  Yes, having little kids makes some activities more fun (that is why I have nephews) BUT I am a newlywed and my husband and I have every right to find the inner child in us and plot away (okay - let's be honest I just really like having plans and organization to my life)!! So here it is our 2012 summer bucket list!!

Somethin' Bout A Blog

Kip Moore stole my heart when he sang "Somethin' bout a truck". There is nothing better then a feel good country love song that makes this city girl feel like she is in the county when hearing the words to this song.

"And there's somethin bout a truck in a field.. And a girl in a red sundress.. With an ice cold beer to her lips..Beggin for another kiss"

I have been following many of my favorite blogs for the past two or so years and decided it is finally my turn to share my story. I hope you find Somethin' that will make you want to come back for more!
