I've received several awards this month and I've finally found the time to play catch up and spread some love to my fellow bloggers.

Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:

Lastly, I received the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from Raelyn

You're supposed to pass this award onto 15 inspiring Bloggers, but I'm with Raelyn on this one on being a rebel and breaking the rules since I don't have 15 more blogs to pass this award to.
But first, I am supposed to:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.

Thank-you Raelyn from!! I feel incredibly honored that you think my blog is inspiring.  :)

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

1. I'm a total tech nerd.  I've been building and fixing computers since I was 14years old.  While I don't build them so much these days I still get super excited by technology and shiny new toys.

2. I'm addicted to interior design and love getting new decorating ideas from online blogs and Pinterest and HGTV. 

3. Books!!  I love love love to read, and even love the way books smell.

4.  I love horror movies and ghost stories.

5.  I drink waaaay too much coffee but I love it so.

6.  I have a ton of Freckles and hated them as a kid.

7.  I cried way too hard after watching Marley and Me and refuse to ever watch it again or any movie that a dog dies in.

3. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire. (Or less than that!!)

Phew!  Ok I think I'm all caught up now.  Sorry it took me so long to get to this.


Wordless Wednesday (all your bed are belong to me)


Happy Summer!

Internet is fixed, now back to our regularly scheduled programming.  

Aside from our internet being unreliable this week, it has also been raining here the past couple of days.  Which we needed badly!  This morning however, I wasted no time taking Zoe out to our favorite dog park at Sunrise.

We've been coming to Millie Bush Bark Park since Zoe was 4 months old.  It's the first park we brought her to and it's also where she learned how to swim.  I love coming here just as much as Zoe does.  Just look at that face, how could I not keep taking her here?

With it being so hot here in Southeast Texas, it doesn't hurt to have a place with lots of water to cool off in.  Though, Zoe will go for a swim no matter what the temperature is outside.

I hope you've all had a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend as much as we are.


Wordless Wednesday

We've been having internet troubles this week.  Please forgive us. 


Happy Friday!

Lets have some fun in the sun this weekend.  And don't forget to put on a happy face!


Wordless Wednesday


Angry birds!

We have several bird's nests in the Courtyard now.  They do not take kindly to trespassers, and in fact get pretty angry.  

Anytime Zoe gets too close they will swoop down right at her, in full angry bird mode.  

This little guy is the toughest of them all.  It really is fascinating to see how well they protect their own. 

Zoe on the other hand is not amused in the least bit.  She decided she had quite enough and walked back into our hallway with her tail between her legs.

Monday mischief

Happy Monday friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  We honestly didn't do much this weekend because I was feeling a bit under the weather.  I made it up to Zoe this morning by taking her out to Millie Bush Bark Park at sunrise.

She certainly didn't waste any time getting right to business.  As soon as we got through the gate she gave me that "throw the ball" look.

Not long after she really needed to cool off in the lake.  Though, I doubt it helped much since the water was really quite warm.

Zoe really doesn't like being out in the heat for too long, so I kept her in the water as much as possible.  A year ago we would stay for at least an hour or two, but these days she seems to get tired a lot quicker and I don't want to exhaust her. 

 On our way out Zoe was holding her ball in her mouth and a puppy came up to her, greeted her, and then tried to take her ball from her mouth.  She wasn't having that, so she bopped the puppy on the head and pranced over to the fence like the diva that she is.  Oy!  At least the puppies owner found it amusing.


Let's have a splashing time!

And enjoy the weekend!  :)





Hi, I'm Alison and I have an 1 year old black lab mix named Zoe. She was found wandering around by herself near a highway at just 5 weeks old. While her story begins sad, she has had nothing short of a spoiled, happy and healthy life since coming home with me and my boyfriend.
