fall with toby

The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this photo my husband took of me and Toby while we were at my aunt’s house a few weeks ago was…

My buddy (my buddy), my buddy (my buddy)! Wherever I go, HE goes!

Hope you all get out there and enjoy the fall weather this weekend!

adventure awaits

The day has finally arrived! Hubs and I are headed to Asia to visit my family in Taiwan, and then soldiering onward to eat our weight in ramen in Japan **fist pump**. I’m so excited to unplug for a bit, but things won’t get TOO quiet around here, as I have some awesome guest bloggers filling in for me while I’m away :-) They’ve put together some great content, so be sure to stop by and say hi!

Wanna tag along on our adventure? Follow me on Instagram and Twitter!

i love you every step of the way

There’s an extra bit of love in my heart because we’re celebrating our wedding anniversary today! It’s a little crazy to think that we’ve been married for 4 years – an entire high school or college era (yes, this is how I always think of 4 year blocks). Time certainly flies when you’re having fun :-) Cheers to year #4!

Toby the French bulldog tantrum

Behold, Toby’s new trick of the summer! He calls it the “I kindly disagree with the direction we’re going in”, alternatively known as “I wish to sniff this rock for an extra 30 minutes. Please go on without me”. It is simultaneously hilarious and frustrating, as passersby scoot around us and giggle at the scenario – me desperately trying to get his butt off the ground, and Toby pretending he has no bones in his entire body. We’re a regular Laurel & Hardy act! Luckily he’s turning 3 next month, so hopefully these Terrible Two tantrums will soon be ancient history…fingers crossed. Otherwise we may have to invest in a little red wagon to pull him home in :-) Happy Friday!

patriotic Toby

“Are we SURE we bought enough hot dogs? Maybe I should count them again…”

Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend filled with fireworks, watermelon, and sunscreen! And hopefully not too much rain from Tropical Storm Arthur [Debbie Downer trombone sound]. Happy 4th of July, friends!

baby Toby

I was cleaning out Toby’s drawer of doggy things this weekend, and I found his old red harness that he was wearing the day we brought him home. For fun, I tried to see how well it would fit him NOW, and I couldn’t even get it over his head! It’s amazing that the 35 pound bowling ball running around our house was ever tiny enough comfortably curl up in our laps for an impromptu nap. They grow up so fast – tear!
