Idk why but these pictures of me with Tucker make me lol. I feel like they are what a mommy blogger would take with their baby, except I have a dog lol. 

When we are eating dinner Tucker will poke his head under the table and I think it's so cute. Also J's long hair peaking out of his beanie is also very cute.

Tucker loves looking out the window. I seriously can't wait until we move and can rent a house with a backyard! Baby boy gonna love his days outside haha. 

Remember in high school when it was very cool to take photos like this? Good times, good times. 

I am so bummed! I was making these raspberry sticky buns and ran out of cream cheese. So J ran to the store to get some and I was all good and fine, finished making them, and put them in the oven. THEN I realized I FORGOT THE VANILLA!!!! They were ok... but definitely would have been better with vanilla. I was sad, after everything we did to make them happen!

Lastly, I have been having trouble finding good T.V. shows lately. I like Mr. Robot, Riverdale, and Orphan Black. We aren't loving this season of American Horror Story. I feel like they get too complex? The best season was still the haunted house one, IMO. I also had to stop watching Vampire Diaries after they got rid of one of the main characters. Under The Dome was good at first, but then got kind of cheesy and weird. I loved The Leftovers, but felt like it was getting wayyyyyy to violent so I stopped watching it. Anddddddd I can't remember what else we tried. 

Anyway, if you have T.V. recommendations, PLEASE comment them below!

Beach Day With Baes

Saturday, November 18, 2017
It's like I still take photos, I just have trouble finding a good time to post them, ya feel?

These are from Sunday when we went to the beach! I have been wanting to do a weekly tradition of getting drinks and snacks from the vending machines at Goodwill, and then going for a drive too see pretty houses. I usually use Zillow or Trulia and just find multimillion dollar homes for sale and drive there. This time we decided to go to the beach in Fairfield, too. It was so cute!

They had a bunch of cute boats all lined up. I didn't have my nice camera with me, but I want to go bak and do photography things because it was really pretty.

It's dumb because dogs are only allowed on the beach after October 1st! We took Tucker and it was... and adventure lol. We still scared about letting him off his leash for good, even though he always comes when we call. We let him off for a minute or two to run around, but put him back on when our anxiety went through the roof lol. 

J was trying to run with him, and he kept biting the leash. He doesn't quite understand that running means he is supposed to run alongside the person, not try to catch the person. Herding breeds.... ahhaaah. 

Anyway, if you guys have tips on how to teach your dog to run with you, let me know!

J apologizing to Tucker for having to be stern lol. 

Weekly Beauty Favorites

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

1/ Sleep Aromatherapy Body Cream - I use this every night before bed! It smells so good and calming. Also, I got this on sale for $3! They just had a sale with all aromatherapy for $4! So if you want to stock up (like I do) then sign up for their emails and keep an eye peeled.

2/ Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder - I love the way this smells! It's just a nice powder to set and blend your makeup. It's also small enough you can take it with you. My skin gets super gross and oily in the summer so I'm looking forward to this. 

3/ Super Booster Teeth Whitening Pen - Ok!! So I use to whiten my teeth but the product I used made them so sensitive. So I was really curious to try this out. I honestly feel like it has made a difference! I took a before photo that I will compare to after I have used it for another week or two, but I do feel like they are whiter. I also don't have any sensitivity after using this, which is a MUST for me.

4/ Wet n Wild Felt Tip Eyeliner - This eyeliner was recommend by one of my makeup guru friends, so naturally I went out and bought it the next day. I really like it so far! It stays where it is supposed to and doesn't get in my eyelid crease.

5/ E.L.F. BB Cream - This was so cheap on Amazon I was like, why not? I have ended up loving it. It is light enough that it doesn't cover my freckles, but heavy enough to even out my skin tone. 

6/ Baby Skin Pore Eraser Primer - This is something else I saw recommended and immediately bought. I feel like it makes my makeup go on really smooth and blend together well. 

Let me know if you guys have any beauty related things that you are loving! I don't know much about anything, so I always like to try new things out!

A Happy List: 175 + Links

1/ I watch Orphan Black and in the opening song there are these woman who sing really high, just like "oooooh oooh oooooh". J sometimes sings along and it always cracks me up.

2/ Speaking of J, his hair is long now, ya know? He put on a beanie today and his hair is sticking out and it is SO CUTE! I have been singing "He was a skater boy" all day lol. I am one those fans of the "skater boy" look and plan to dress my son like a little skater haha. I am so excited.

3/ Speaking of skater boys, do you guys follow weslie_ on Instagram? She dresses her little boy like a skater and it is the CUTEST THING. I am constantly like, "J!! Look how cute this kid is! Our future son!" lol.

4/ We have been trying to just eat what is in our house, or to buy what we are craving from the grocery story to prevent ourselves from going out a lot, and it's going well! It's actually kind of fun and soothing to feel like we are using all the food before it goes bad.

5/ We created an Excel for all our trips and it's so nice to be able to track what we've spent! Right now we are saving everything for Ireland and almost have it all paid back!

6/ We drove around Fairfield tonight and looked at all the million dollar homes on the beach. It was super fun and weirdly gave me some zest back? I often live in the future, always waiting for us to be in the next "phase". I guess that's what being a student for 5 years can do to you? Anyway, so I am always looking at places to live/obsessing about where to move next, etc. and not focusing on what's right in front of me. We got treats and went to the beach with Tucker and it was really fun! It made me realize that even though Connecticut isn't my favorite place, there are some fun things we can do to make this time a little easier to swallow.

7/ We decorated our apartment for Christmas and it's so cozy! I went to Target after Halloween and got so many cute Halloween things on mega sale! I can't wait until Christmas is over to do the same!

8/ I only have 4 days of classes left before I am in my last semester of grad school. Ah!!!

9/ Giant marshmallow Santas! I didn't even know these existed until I sent J to the store for cream cheese and he came home with them lol. Yes, I have been eating a marshmallow Santa a day. Judge me.

10/ Organize our "junk closet". We move a lot, and every time we move we do really good at organizing and sorting through everything... until like the last box lol. Then we just put everything in a drawer, or a closet.  And it drives me crazy!! So I went through and organized it and threw a bunch of things away.


Cool internet things:

This cute blogger I've followed for years is pregnant! (Does anyone else feel like everyone is pregnant and having kids except for themselves? Make yourself known because at this point I feel like I am the only person who has been married for a while and doesn't have babies lol.

Is this not the cutest airstream you've ever seen? I love following along the adventures of people who live life on the road. 

I'm very excited for this T.V. show to be made into books!!

I know I'm probably late to the game, but this Halloween video has me CRYING

Can you believe this couch is only $300? I literally posted mine on Craigslist second after seeing this lol. Cross your fingers mine sells!

How To Trick Your Dog Into Eating Healthy

Do you ever want to get revenge on your dog? I do lol. Tucker is cute but also a rebel. When I saw this campaign for dog food with better ingredients, I wasn't sure if Tucker would like it, but was determined to trick him into it lol. 

So, step 1 of tricking your dog into liking food that is better for them: Take them to PetSmart and let them experience dog heaven/pick out their own food. Tucker was sniffing allllll the sniffs. We also saw a corgi and a bulldog puppy. It was a good day. 

We chose the Purina® Pro Plan® dog food because it provides nutrition in wet and dry products for different taste preferences, age, dietary considerations, or activity/lifestyle in for platforms for dogs. They also have grain-free or no corn, wheat, or soy options for those of you who want your dog to follow in your footsteps lol. They are backed by a team of over 400 scientists, nutritionists, behaviorists, and veterinarians... so no ingredient is unnecessary. Everything is precisely and purposefully selected. Find what formula is best for your dog here

Now, step 2: Introduce it to them in a neural environment to raise interest. (As you can see, interest was raised.)

Step 3: Build suspense. Make them wait for it. 

Step 4: Pour into bowl, while continuing to build suspense.

Step 5: Offer it to pupper. See if pupper takes bait... PUPPER TOOK BAIT.

Step 6: Take photo with pupper to use as collateral when he forgets how nice you are to him. 

Step 7: Take blackmail photo of pupper to show to dog friends when he misbehaves. 

Lol k but in all reality it was fun to give Tucker some yums! I feel like once you find out how someone treats their dog, that's all you really need to know about them!
