Friday- Meet Our New Foster Pup!


And happy summer, right?  My absolute favorite time of the year — warm weather & sunshine… yes!   Although these 90+ degree boot camp days are kicking my butt!  I will gladly take a break from the heat on a Tuesday or Thursday evening one of these days.  🙂  

Tuesday evening, we picked up our new foster pup – MacKenzie!  She was an owner surrender to the rescue & has been staying at a local dog daycare.  I guess she doesn’t do too well with small children or smaller dogs so we decided to take her in as we have been dog-less for a month!   Her biography says she is a hound mix but I have no clue what she is!  She kind of has a beagle face but the rest of her body?  A lab maybe?  Or pit bull?  Her favorite spot is right here on the floor next to the a/c!  

She is HUGE.  I’ve never had a big dog before so this is completely new to me!  However, she is so sweet & loves attention.  If you’ve followed along with my stories of our last foster pup, MacKenzie is the complete opposite.  She doesn’t hide under the table or spend all day laying in the bathroom.  She wags her tail & gets excited to see us when we come home from work.  The first night with her, she walked into our bedroom, jumped up on the bed, and made herself at home as if she’s been here her entire life.  It’s SO different having a “normal” dog!  

This week, I started my new schedule at work — 8-4:30.  While that 30 minutes doesn’t seem like much, it’s been a nice change!  For almost four years now, I’ve worked 8-5 with an hour lunch break which I’ve never been a huge fan of.  My office isn’t in an area of town where I can run errands during that hour so I would usually be stuck doing nothing (or going on long walks).  So a 30 minute lunch is more my pace!  

I discovered Shein the other night — have any of you ever ordered anything from there?  I love the cut out sleeves on this dress & they also had a bunch of cute basic dresses for SO cheap.  It kind of makes me think it’s too good to be true!

I have a hair cut scheduled for tomorrow but I haven’t decided if I’m going to change things up.  I realized I needed to get back into the habit of going every 6-8 weeks like I used to if I want my hair to ever be decent again.  Going 4-5 months at a time is NOT good as my hair is super dry/thick/coarse which has meant chopping off more than I want at each haircut.  Not to mention damaged for going so long in between cuts.  

We have a busy weekend planned but I’m hoping to be able to catch up on some sleep tonight as we have to get up far too early on Sunday morning.  Have a great weekend everyone!  

Linking up with Andrea, Erika, Narci, Amanda, and April!


  1. I’ve gone a whole year without cutting my hair (lazy) and it was so bad that at night, it would wrap around my neck and practically strangle me…that’s when I knew it was time to get it cut LOL
