Help In the Garden?!

Since the weather is so unbelievably nice, I can’t help but spend all of my time outside!

Today, I had a few more things to plant in my garden that I bought on Sunday, and I noticed that Jen’s was willing to be my ‘co-green-thumb’…So, I ran inside to get my phone and came back out and noticed that my ‘co-green-thumb’ had decided this was her way to help…

Sitting in the garden while watching ME do all of the work.

How sweet of her–

Well, I better get back to finishing my planting while Jen’s is watching over me.

Maybe she is taking lessons to one day help? One can only dream….

Thankful Thursday

It's not happy people who are thankful, 
It's thankful people who are happy.
On the gloomy-rainy day, it only seems appropriate to remember what I am thankful for. This week I am thankful for many things, however I have managed to narrow my list down to 5.
So, here you have it…
  • Not only sharing Easter with my family, but also enjoying the delicious food that goes along with every holiday.
  • Enjoying all things homegrown.
  • Going out-of-town for a dear sweet friends wedding.
  • Being able to work out (although I am currently so sore, I am hating myself for going to the gym).
  • Finding a place for myself in the ‘blogOsphere’.

What are you thankful for? I’d love for you to share–

Thankful Thursday

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.
 If you concentrate on what you don'e have, you will never, ever have enough.

While I was in college, I had a class that I had to blog for. We were told each day to blog about a specific ‘topic’ for the day. We had to write 5 things that we were thankful for. Thursday’s were always ‘Thankful Thursday’ and it was my most favorite day to blog.

One reason being that I actually got to sit down and write out what I was thankful for.

Another reason is I became so much more grateful for the things I was writing about because I actually was forced to think about them. I could focus on how those particular things I’m ‘thankful for’ help me–Not only daily, but weekly, monthly, and yearly. It made a huge difference to me and I’ve always thought that it was such a great idea.

So, here I go with my Thankful Thursday…

  • Conquering the freezing cold to go to the gym.
  • Cleaning out old boxes and giving things to the Thrift Store.
  • J’s love for Jen’s and I.
  • My mom taking me shopping and talking me into things I wouldn’t buy for myself, yet I need.
  • Finding a ‘squirt’ form of Publix Sweet Tea.

What are you THANKFUL for? I’d love to hear!

Love @ First Bark…Maybe?

Ok, for those of you that are new….I have a dog, Jenny (Jen’s) and Lauryn Pumpkin has a dog named Brody (Brod’s).

Secretly, well maybe not the secret part…but we are trying to make Jen’s and Brod’s love each other.

Crazy? Yes, we know.

But, we want a dog wedding.

Yep, I said it. Dog wedding.

We have already told people our families and we plan on sending out invitations. Real Ones.

This is no joke.

However, there is ONE huge problem.

Jen’s is scared of Brody. SCARED. SCARED. SCARED.

He barks and growls at her. Maybe that’s his way of showing affection? I’m not sure…But, Jen thinks he needs to find a new way because she is not having it.

So, I’ve decided since warm weather is coming up (HOPEFULLY), we need to start planning this shindig. Which means….Brod’s is going to have to change his ways. Lauryn Pumpkin has been talking to him about his actions. Maybe they will corporate.

First, we sent a picture to hopefully help…and then you will see what we got in return.

Jen’s : Brody, Woof you be mine?   Yes or No

Brod’s : Jen’s, I’m sorry for barking at you. I get nervous around pretty girls. Of course, I’ll be yours. 

Maybe the next play-date will be better?

I know we are crazy…But, who doesn’t love their dog? And who doesn’t want a precious dog wedding? Ahhh!

Perfect excuse to enjoy some wine, perhaps! I’d say so myself.
