Jumping Back Into the Blogosphere... BARK WORLD or BUST!

So I've been dying to go to Bark World in Atlanta (only 3 hours by car for me) for 3 years now (holy dog, has it really been that long?!). This year I'm finally going to make it (unfortunately sans Olivia, but that may be for the best, it's sometimes hard to get everything you want done when you have a 'toddler' with you. Although I will miss her!)

So yeah, I'm jumping back into the blogosphere head first. I'm hoping to gain new insight and inspiration for future projects, having to do with this blog and otherwise. I'll be the first to admit that I'm very easily side tracked.

I can't wait to go to my first blogging conference ever!!!

I fell off the wagon...

Sooo.... I fell off the blogging wagon. Again.

Not really a big surprise considering how crazy busy I've been.

Here's the down and dirty of what we've been up to:

  • Fiance (now (and newly) husband) purchased an equestrian apparel wholesale/manufacturing company called FITS Riding Ltd
    • For this we spent 3 weeks in Portland, OR back in May (the company was based there)
    • We moved the company to South Carolina where we live
    • We've gone to 2 trade shows
      • King of Prussia, PA and Cologne, Germany
    • YES, Olivia does come to work with us EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. #bosslady
  • We are building a house
    • YES, It will have a dog room (which will double as my laundry room). And YES, it will have a dog shower. And YES, Olivia will have some sort of closet/armoire for all her clothes and accessories
  • We were planning a wedding
  • We got married!

Our wedding was a dream come true, Olivia and our 5 month old niece were the flower girls and had matching wicker strollers to go down the aisle in and matching dresses. Olivia was actually at the wedding until 9 pm and got to dance and go in the photo booth as well as eat her dinner kibble off one of the china salad plates.

I want to get back to blogging and writing. I miss it! Hopefully I can force myself back in the habit and stay on the wagon this time. PAWS CROSSED.

Holiday Update

Boy has it been a busy few weeks! I thought I'd get a chance to do this sooner but even on my days off from work it seemed like I just couldn't find the time!

Last year I went a little overboard for Olivia's first Christmas. I bought her every single toy that I thought was cute. This year I only bought a few things that I thought she would like or that were useful (like a pre-soaped sponged for bath time).

Olivia's stocking stuffers from my favorite local store

Her big gift was a Snoozer car seat. We put it under the tree on Christmas eve and she climbed right in for a nap. She definitely knew it was for her! She loved it still when we took her for her maiden voyage in the car with it. She couldn't decide whether to nap or look out the window!

We had a lot of fun goofing off and playing together this holiday season and Olivia even helped make ugly sweater cookies while wearing my childhood apron haha.

Olivia wasn't too excited about ringing in the new year but she did watch the ball drop on tv with Brian and I at midnight before we all crashed and went to bed.

My New Year's blogging resolution for 2015: Be more consistent with my blog!
