December's Bark Box

(Kai's First Pick)

(Tucker's First Pick)

It's always disappointing when you are expecting a package and they tell you that you have to wait a week before you get it. Well, their box arrived a lot earlier than expected, and boy were they excited! I think Tucker was running around the house going back and forth between his two toys for a good fifteen or twenty minutes while Kai was chewing away at her Pork Hide Chew.

With it being December, their box was Christmas themed. It included: Chilly's Paw Warmers, Mishkas Warm Winter Hat, Lodge Logs, Bixbi Bark Pop Treats, and a Pork Hide Chew.

Here is the link if you would like to start a Barkbox subscription, and your first box is FREE!


The other day, I was told my pups are spoiled. A part of me was a little upset by that thought, but once I started to think about it, I didn't care because I know they are in a great home and surrounded by lots and lots of love. Before we got Kai, she was a stray; who knows how long she was outside scavenging for food every night or trying to curl up and stay warm through the cold, winter nights. I see way too many stories about people wanting to give their dogs up or how poorly they treat them. I am SO happy to say that my dogs are spoiled because not every dog gets that... which breaks my heart.

Maroon Sweater

So, I got this sweater over Black Friday and I went to put it in my closet, and I noticed I have way too many maroon tops!! I'm not sure what it is, but during the winter months, I love that color! This sweater was very popular, so there are only a few colors and sizes left... I did link some other ombre sweaters below!

Christmas Tree 2016

Here is my tree!!! I created a post here, as my inspiration for decorating this year; my main focus was a "Winter Wonderland". I used white and gold ornaments and incorporated white fur and wood to add a warmer touch. There are so many presents under the tree that you can't see the tree skirt, but that is one of my favorite things! It is a faux white fur, as well as the ribbon. Everything except a few ornaments were bought from Hobby Lobby.

I can't explain how excited I was to put our tree up this year. Last year, we lived in an apartment and had a small six foot tree, so this year I couldn't wait to have full-looking, big tree! Of course, when my boyfriend and I went to Hobby Lobby, he spotted a guitar ornament and he had to get it. I tried to hide it in the back, but he gave it a spot more in the front as you can tell in the first picture!

I put together a collage of gifts, so whether you are looking to spend a lot or just have enough for something small, all items range in price!

November's Bark Box

(Kai's First Pick)

(Tucker's First Pick)

If you know me, you know I am obsessed with my pups! They are basically my children... Starting now, each month I will be posting about their monthly BarkBox because it makes me so happy to see how excited they get when it comes in the mail. My black lab, Tucker, is usually first to grab all the toys and my husky, Kai, is the first to grab the treats! 

This month's box are items related to Thanksgiving. It included: a Turkey Day Football, Lick the Chef Apron, Turkey Jerky Sticks, Freeze Dried Turkey liver and Cranberry Biscuits, a Knuckle Slice, and Bark & Co Poop Bags. 

This month they are offering your first box for only $1!! Here is the link (the link allows you one free box on 6-month or 12-month subscriptions) to get started and make your pup(s) fall even more in love with you!

I got a lot done this weekend! From cleaning and putting all my fall stuff away to decorating the Christmas tree! I can't wait to share it with y'all! Also over the weekend, we stopped at At Home and I found the mirrors I have been looking for since they first opened!!! I only found two and need one more, but I'm hoping there are some more on there way to the store. I am going to be stopping by daily to see if they get any more in! I want to hang them up SO bad, but I will have to wait until I get the other one...

Christmas Inspiration: Winter Wonderland

Christmas will be at my house this year so I have already been planning what I want to do. In the previous years, I've kept it pretty simple, but this year I am going all out. I created a "Christmas Inspiration" collage to show you all what I'm envisioning for this year and I can't wait to share it when I'm done!

Mustard Cardigan and Striped Tee

Jeans // Cardigan from Walmart (similar here) // Striped Top from Gordmans (similar here) // 
Watch // Flats are old (similar here)

Is it really November already?! Where has this year gone? Over the weekend, I did some much needed shopping with my mama! I've been wanting to add copper elements into my kitchen, and I found some really cute things at TJ Maxx. I will be doing a post about my kitchen hopefully sometime this month!  

These jeans are the comfiest jeans I have ever worn! The material is stretchy making them easy to move around in. I highly recommend them, and they are only $65!

Quilted Vest and Duck Boots

Duck Boots // Jeans // Vest // Striped Top (from Gordmans, similar here) // Watch

It was chilly this morning in Iowa, but I didn't realize how warm it was supposed to get! I guess I should start checking the weather before I plan my outfit out. I guess now that it is the end of October, I just assume that it is going to be chilly!

A Day at the Apple Orchard

Jeans similar here and here // Long sleeve // Lucky Brand Shoes // Utility Vest similar here // Watch

We drove up to Gays Mills, WI over the weekend and went to an Apple Orchard. On the way up, we stopped at a little town called Marquette, IA and went to a couple antique stores and stopped at a little winery! The leave colors were so beautiful; this season by far is my favorite!

DIY Calligraphy Pumpkins

I'm sorry I have been MIA lately; with school, work, and family, things can get pretty busy! Last week I put together 20 No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas that I thought were such great ideas, and I loved the Calligraphy Pumpkins so much I made some of my own!

For the supplies, all I needed were pumpkins, a Metallic Sharpie, and a pen. I used the pen to create an outline of the writing because I didn't want to mess up using the Sharpie. If I messed up using the pen, I just got some water and rubbed it off. From there, I traced the pen with my sharpie and that was it!

20 No-Carve Pumpkin Ideas

All of these ideas make me want to go buy all the pumpkins I can, and decorate them! I tried my best to find links for all of them, but there are a few that I couldn't. I hope you feel inspired by this post and go buy a bunch of pumpkins!!
