Please welcome.. MOOSE

Did you know that Jeremy and I got a puppy? Well if weren't aware or this now you are, and let me tell you he is the cutest pup you will ever see.

Introducing... MOOSE
For all you lady pups out there, I'm sorry to say that he is not allowed to date until at least 6 months..  

In all honesty, I'm not sure if there is a person alive that would be able to resist this cute puppy face.  I can't even deal with his cuteness!

So let me tell you a little bit about our new addition:

Breed: beagle/terrier mix (or so they say.. we got him from a shelter and his dad was a total washout and left him and his brothers and sisters before they were born.)
Age: Moose is now a whopping 14.5 weeks old.  He is growing up so fast!
Place of Birth: Moose was born in Tennessee on November 16th.  He was then rescued and brought to the North East Animal Shelter (which is a fabulous organization that I highly recommend) You should adopt a pet from here!
Likes: Car rides, anything that involves food, walks, rough housing with daddy, playing on the beach with other dogs, chewing sticks, napping.
Dislikes: Baths!
Favorite Memory: Being in Pennsylvania for butchering weekend and getting to chew a bone from an actual cow! yummy!!
Dreams and aspirations: To go above and beyond any of Cesar Milan's dogs when it comes to manners, obeying, tricks, and looks ;)
Chomping on a stick 

This little guy has brought so much joy to our lives!

Thankful Thursday

I am taking this idea from Jess, so full credit goes to her.  Every Thursday I will post something that I am thankful for.  I was very excited about this idea because it took some pressure off of having to write a long, personal and well thought out blog every day.  Today is a very special Thursday because I will post two things that I am thankful for.  I just couldn't decide on one because they have both made today a wonderful day.

Today I am thankful for:

Colored Folders
Chocolate Cupcakes
It's amazing what some colored folders and a chocolate cupcake can do to your day!

Someone worth mentioning

I know I have been missing in action from the blog world for MONTHS now and I am deeply sorry about that.  you see, I have been so distracted lately.  Not to mention I have been pretty busy at work.  Honestly about two days ago I had told myself that I was all done with blogging because I had nothing good to say, I didn't have the time, and my blog just sucks! Pretty dramatic, I know. Although I was tempted I clearly did not hit the delete button on my blog, instead I was inspired to continue on by my best friend in the world Jessica Heindel.   She goes above and beyond her best friend duties so now this post is dedicated to her!

Oh and did I mention that she made me that awesome new header? She is simply the best!

Jess and I became best buds in 8th grade drama class... And when I say best buds I mean she always forgot my name and would ask me day after day to repeat it.  Eventually she learned my name and we then became the best of friends! We have been through so much together (way more than most teenage friends went through I'm sure).  We have faced bad breakups, deaths in our family, personal struggles, my battle with cancer, and some how came through it all being better friends.  We have also celebrated together when I became officially cancer free, when we graduated high school and college, and when we stood next to each other as the maid/matron of honor in each of our weddings.

Jess is an amazing woman of God, who earnestly seeks truth.  She is kind hearted and warm.  Welcoming and selfless. She is a deep thinker and is wise beyond her years!
Can't you tell?! 

She is a loyal, and trustworthy friend and I am so thankful for her!
