Well, it sure hasn't felt like spring here today. Barely in the mid-30's....brrr. But in effort to keep up with Lynette's party, I will pretend I'm somewhere warm and figured I'd answer a few more random questions.

If money wasn’t a factor, what stores would you shop in?

-You mean there are stores beyond walmart & goodwill to shop at? I honestly don't know. I think even if someday I ever came into a pile of money, I would still do yard saling & bargain shopping. It's in my blood & I don't know if I could get away from that. Sure, once in awhile I may splurge, but even then I think I would have a hard time doing that. I live for the thrill of finding the best deal out there! And boy have I scored some killer deals in my time!

What is your greatest fear or strange phobia?

-Well, honestly I've already lived through anyones greatest fear....losing a child. I'm still muddling my way through that. So right now, I don't think I have any greater fear than that to be honest. As for strange phobias, nope, I'm pretty open to a lot. Ok, as I type this, hubby says huge ocean waves. Ok, I am 5'1" and pretty petite. I don't like getting pummeled by waves. Just not enjoyable in my opinion. A phobia, not really but he felt I should throw that out there. Dork. I mean, I love you dear! ♥

Movies: Action, Drama, Romantic Comedy, Documentary, Comedy? What are your favorite genres?

Hands down comedy! I don't care if it's romantic comedy, or a cheesy comedy. The only time I get to watch movies is usually after we get the kids in bed. So by that point in time, I want something light hearted & something I don't have to get tense about or have to kill brain cells over. I want to relax and just laugh & forget about reality!

So with that said, I need to share some long over-due pictures! We added onto our family a month ago and I just haven't shared about it. I was out teaching CPR classes for the day and I came home to another female in the house!!! Long story behind her, but Erik especially has been itching for a puppy, especially since losing Noah. Kevin knew I was ok with getting one so they decided to surprise me.

Introducing Lacey, an AKC registered pure bred golden retriever. We got her at 8wks old and she is now 12wks old. I meant to do a photo shoot when we got her but I finally got around to taking pictures last week. Here are a few pics I snapped....

And because I can't leave our other "baby" out...here's a pic I snapped of our kitten Hope (5 months old) with Lacey. Still working on trying to pose the 2 of them together. Maybe next time will go better....

Lacey has been doing extremely well! She is very smart & has picked up great on commands. Granted, she's still all puppy. But she is eager to learn. We had her to our vet 2wks ago and he just couldn't get over her!!! He told us we got a wonderful dog with an amazing personality! In fact, he encouraged us due to her looks & smart personality to breed her. So we'll see in time how things go. But we are thankful for such a sweet puppy!


  1. Lacey is such a beautiful dog! My husband and I adopted a dog (a Dachshund) last week. He's really cute, but he doesn't compare to Lacey!


I enjoy hearing from each & every one of you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)
