WIWW: Joules Wellies + Link Up


Joules Wellies c/o // Fossil purse // Target top 

Last month I talked about how wonderful The Hundred Event was. One thing I may have failed to mention is the gifts I walked away with from the event. Yes, I learned lots of things about blogging (you can read what I learned here), but who doesn't love getting gifts for simply signing up for something?

On the last day of the conference we were told we would all be getting a free pair of Joules Wellies! You've probably seen their wellies scouring the streets of Pinterest. The ones with the bows on the back? Ya, those are Joules. Adorable.

Joules was a sponsor of The Hundred Event and, to add icing to the already delicious cake, they sent each attendee a pair of wellies.

After multiple failed attempts to deliver my wellies, I finally got them yesterday. It was like Christmas! I came home from school and threw them on. Not only are they super comfortable (something I wasn't expecting), but can you argue with how cute they are? And what a perfect Christmas gift for the girls in your family?

My Mom and Dad are here for the week and my Mom grabbed the other shoe and put it on and declared, "I need a pair of these for Christmas!" I guess I'll be ordering a pair for her soon.

It is supposed to rain the majority of the next couple weeks, so I am happy to get some use out of these cuties!

Now for the link up!

- All I ask is you link back to my blog and link to a specific post.

A Heartfelt Puppy Post

The love of an animal is something I never realized. Growing up we always had dogs. I can't remember a time in my life without a dog actually. Having dogs in my adult life is different though.

I grew up on tons of acreage way out in the country. Imagine the country, then multiply that by 100 and you've got a good picture of where I grew up. Our dogs always stayed outside. They roamed around hundreds of acres out in the country, never were walked on a leash, and were never fenced in. And they were definitely never allowed inside. 

When it got cold we would put a heat lamp out in their doghouse for them. My Mom would fill their little house with tons of blankets. They would run around like the cold weather didn't phase them at all.

It wasn't until I had Wrigley and Bailey that I really discovered the meaning of "a man's best friend." 

Chris sent me this picture the other day while I was at work (Chris was on night shift so he was home during the day).

It literally broke my heart. My girl loves me. I know she is only a dog, but her and Wrigley are literally our world. Until human children enter the picture, Chris and I would do anything for those two mutts. 

The way Wrigley follows me around and the way Bailey gives me the stink eye in the morning are things that will never get old. They each have such huge, yet different, personalities and I can't imagine our life without them.

I know this is such a random sappy post, but my lovely husband said last night, "Isn't it going to be sad when they aren't around anymore?" Hello Debbie Downer, welcome to the party! I instantly teared up and got really sad. It didn't take long for Wrigs and Bays to lighten the mood with their random silliness. They are the best of friends.

So, there ya have it. One sappy post from a puppy parent. And yes, I know they aren't puppies, but they will always be puppies to us.

Thanks for playing along with this random little post.

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday, and Wrigley does, too!

Dear Kitchen Cabinets...

...why must there be so many of you.

I finally started the time consuming project of redoing our kitchen cabinets. I worked tirelessly all weekend (literally...all weekend) and came THIS close to finishing. The Texas humidity was not on my side, so the drying process was definitely like the saying, "watching paint dry."

At the moment our kitchen looks only a smidge better than this picture, so once it is all put back together, I will give you a little sneak sneak. Oh, and I should mention that I only did the upper cabinets (insert crying emoticon here).

I did manage to sneak away to the McKinney Square and spend some time with my family. My aunt and uncle are in town visiting my cousin, so while everything was drying, I was able to grab a bite to eat and window shop. 

In other news, thanks to everyone who linked up with Caitlin and I for our first The Lovely Lookbook link up! Last month's topic was dresses and I am happy to announce that October's link up topic is:
