TGI-freaking-F, you guys! Oh man, a weekend is needed after the psychotic 24 hours (really week) I’ve had. Yesterday, I was dealing with sick dogs all day. They got some sort of food poisoning and are doing a million times better today, but they were both sick. I don’t think I’ve ever had to deal with them where they’re each that sick. I’m talking diarrhea poop explosions and puking everywhere for those who are really curious (you’re welcome).
Welcome to the Hot Mess Express, you guys, and enjoy this wild ride. In the middle of the chaos, our biggest dog, Kodah, escaped from our home while I was in the middle of cleaning another delightful dog explosion. Yes, escaped. We have a porch and there is a little gap in the fence. I wasn’t fast enough putting up the gate and she ran out and ran around the neighborhood like a psycho dog. And, of course, I’m like a waddling turtle at this point in the pregnancy, so trying to corral her was a non-starter. Then, she saw other neighborhood dogs and got excited. But, she was still sick, so she was getting sick all over the road and dog area while getting excited. Then, I finally got her on a leash, but she’s a bulldog. If you don’t know, bulldogs are known for the pulling might. So, yes, I almost completing ate shit while being 8 months pregnant while trying to corral a sick, 120 lb. tank back into the yard. Thank God Josh showed up right at that moment to save the day otherwise I have no idea how I would have survived. Also, I’m 210% sure that all the neighbors think we’re crazy now. Life is great 🙂 #blessed
The rest of the day was spent cleaning and bleaching the heck out of the inside of our home after the dogs made a huge mess of it. Plus, we gave them each a bath and hosed them down, so that was an experience. Long-story-short, they’re better now. We’re better now. Everyone is totally exhausted and just ready for the freaking weekend.
Anyway, I’ve found some pretty nifty stuff for this week. So, take a browse and let me know what your finds are!
With baby coming soon, I’m starting to prep freezer meals so this link has definitely been on my radar. I’ve bookmarked several recipes out of this post to make for later! Making healthy food easy and accessible is the number one way to ensure that you’re actually fueling yourself with good things. So, go fuel yourself with all the good things.
This is actually a Pinterest graphic. I still pin like crazy! I came upon this a couple weeks ago and these questions are intense. They are the first set of questions that I’ve come across in awhile that actually do spark an internal conversation and allow you to look at things that you can change and make better about yourself. Break out your journal because you’re definitely going to want to go through these.
THREE // 6 Toxic People to Leave in 2017
2017 was a big year of change for me. As always, I’m constantly decluttering and detoxing my life. It’s one of the most freeing things you can do. Scary, but freeing. In fact, I recently wrote a post about things you should get rid of and toxic people made it onto that list as well. I like that this article actually gives you a bit more direction as to what some toxic people look like and how they might be affecting you.
I live for posts like these! We don’t have cable and just aren’t that interested in TV, but we love movies. So, it’s always nice to get a heads up. I’m surprised at how quickly some of these are being turned into movies after just hitting the market! I know there will be several titles you will recognize!
Um, yes, after the fiasco of yesterday, I’d like to buy at least 38 more of these. The spring collection from Hearth & Hand at Target is here and I’ve been loving it! Out of all the scents they recently came out with, this one is my favorite. I tend to try to burn through candles slowly because I love having them around, but I’ve recently burned through my last one. I also like that this one is soy because Josh’s asthma has been kicked up the last couple weeks and I want something that’s going to smell great without polluting the air.
That’s all for this week from my little corner! I hope you all have a great long weekend and that the chaos stays at bay 🙂
