Letting her go...

We had to put our 13+ year old yellow lab to sleep yesterday {Tippy}. It was extremely hard however age was catching up with her and she was just getting worse. Her hips were giving out more and more everyday and along with that her hearing has been gone and her bladder was leaking. With winter coming she was just going to be more miserable. The hardest part was that she was still completely with us and in great spirits and still full of life. Letting her go was the best thing we could do for her. We had great times with her and she brought so much JOY & LOVE to our family, she was always there to cheer you up even if she was in trouble. You are missed Tippy and we know you are now with your best friend, Lucy. Lucy was our black lab that had to be put down 2 years ago. These two girls will forever hold a special place in our hearts!! >

"A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his. It was really quite simple, and yet we humans, so much wiser and more sophisticated, have always had trouble figuring out what really counts and what does not." - marley & me

Highs of 70s & 80s, warm breezes, flip flops and riding w. the top down...

All the above are signs that Summer is right around the corner :) I am so excited! Anyways, I am back to the blog world I have been super busy with school, lia sophia and hanging out with friends and family.
Heres a little update:

We got a new campsite at the campground. Its pretty sweet! Aubrey and I spent all week hanging up lights and cleaning up the site and inside the camper. This summer is going to be awesome! along with the new site we also got a boat last spring :)
I am also going to be watching Brooklyn and Tyler this summer and am getting included on their pool pass. So if I am not at the river I will be laying out at the pool!
Other plans for the summer:
Florida on wednesday June 16th with Anthony to see his brother, Seth.
OBX on Sunday June 20th with my whole family through the following Saturday
That first Sunday I am home my plane leaves at 9 a.m. for Milwaukee for the Lia Sophia conference! I am going to be really busy at the beginning of the quarter just traveling! Below are pictures of our new campsite. we are going to paint the camper and do a couple touchup but other than that its perfect!

So today I deactivated my facebook account in order to prepare for finals, I am considering opening it back up during spring break then shutting it down for spring quarter. It is way too much of a distraction and i cannot afford to let it make my grades slip. So there will most likely be more blogging :) Hope everyone is having a great weekend and enjoys the week ahead

Lets Be Honest...

I haven't shaved my legs in 4 days
and I slept on the couch last night, just for the fun of it :)

Yesterday I bought my first gym membership and cannot wait to use it today with my bestie Kayla. However last night I ate a whole sleeve of Girl Scout Thin Mints, I just had to tell myself thats why I bought the membership!

I have been procrastinating like crazy here lately and its starting to bite me in the butt!

I havent developed a huge church-skipping habit on sundays. Last week I didnt go, week before I did, and who knows how many weeks before that I didnt go. This is not good! I used to go to church every Sunday. I am going to try to start doing that again.

Well I hope everyone is able to come out tell their own truths of the week :) It really helps you get stuff of your chest. I also hope everyone has a great weekend.

Love ALways

Free Jewelry & Disney on Ice

On saturday night we had a girls night out in columbus by going to see Disney on Ice :) Below is a collage of the majority of the pics I took. It you click on the pic you can view it larger and look around at the pictures. By the way I don't think I have mentioned how much I LOVE my zoom lens Mom and Dad got me for christmas!!! Its my new baby. Thanks Mom and Dad, xoxo

So as I mentioned a month ago I joined Lia Sophia! I am finally a qualified advisor! woot-woot (*doing a happy dance) along with getting qualified I have earned $325 in FREE jewelry!!! Below is the pieces I picked out. I am in love with my new charm bracelet.. probably has something to do with the fact thats its a beach charm bracelet and ofcourse everyone in Ohio would do any thing for warm weather and a day at the beach.

I also scored this Vera Bradley bag on their website for $40 after tax and shipping! SCORE and more happy dancing!
Well I hope everyone has a great week!

Love ALways,

Last saturday I added a new member to our furry family :) we were at the reptile show in cbus and I came across this adorable little fur ball bunny rabbit. Ofcourse I had to bring her home!

sunday we had Miss Molly's bday party! It is so hard to believe she is already 3 years old. It seems like just yesterday we were waiting on the call to bring Maddie and Vincent to see their new little sister. She has grown into such a cute and very smart little girl :)

{Project 365 - Day?}

haha well I kind slacked off on the 365 project but I am not giving up on it :)

So I got back sunday from doing Taryn and Alans wedding pictures in Asheville, NC at the Biltmore. So the pictures are more than enough to make up for the days I missed of the project :) I had a ton of fun on the trip and loved touring the Biltmore.

Some other exciting news and a big decision that I made this week was to become a Lia Sophia Advisor! I am so exciting about making a little extra money a month, getting tons of free bling and ofcourse meeting new people! Tomorrow I am actually going to meet all the girls on the team that I joined :)
Last night Anthony and I went to see the Book of Eli with Trevor and Brandy. That movie was great and it is one that i will be buying when it comes out. Tonight I am hanging out with my friend Mandy when she gets off work. Should be a fun night!
Hope everyone has a great weekend

Scored BIG today at the Semi Annual Sale at Victoria Secrets! woohoo
Even though I got amazing deals on bras I still cannot force myself to buy $5 underwear so we went over to rue21 and got it for $.99. I ended up getting a new cell phone cover and some camis at forever21. Everything was on sale but I still get that guilty feeling about spending large amounts of money. But I think everything bought today was bought for good use and is something that is greatly needed. Being bras are a neccesity & being more than half off its a must to purchase, camis are a necessity, pretty much as important as the bra. Camis allow you to buy cute bras then wear a cami and the pattern or color does not show through. Underwear, well we all know the standing about them & a cell phone cover was greatly needed to protect my phone from scratches. So all in all today made for a good day of shopping.

heres my new phone case :)
