New Puppy!

We have a new member of the family!

His name is Bear (after the Baylor Bears) and he's only 4 weeks old.

He's part lab and part chow.

His momma would not feed him, so he's had to be bottle fed since he was born.

This little guy is so cute and sweet. We're so excited to have him!!

Yarn Letter

I wanted to share this fun craft with you all that I did over the weekend.


It's so simple and easy, and allows for you to do whatever you want to it to make it your own!

All you do is buy a letter for your initials at any craft store, and then wrap the entire thing with your color of choice of yarn!

You can then decorate it however you want. I embellished it with a crocheted rose that I made!

So pretty to hang somewhere!!

restful sunday

For today's restful Sunday pic, I chose food because Sunday is a great day to enjoy a meal with friends or family.

With fall approaching, and the hope of cooler would be nice to have a picnic outside!

Happy Sunday!

I've really been antsy for the fall lately, and partly because I love sweaters!

How pretty are these.....
