What a week we have had in Texas! First off, it has rained so much, everything is completely flooded including my backyard. It is like we live on an island, surrounded by water! Ruger thinks it is the best thing ever! When he goes outside, you can find him totally submerged in the puddles around the yard, splashing and digging. Then, the ritual of picking him up, carrying him inside, drying him off begin. Let’s just say, it has been a messy, muddy week for us. We also got some more tornado warnings, hail, and damaging winds. Other than that, it has been a good week. I’ve got some pictures to share with you again for this Friday. Many of this pictures were on instagram and twitter this week! Make sure to follow along 🙂
So, I am DEFINITELY that type most people loathe in the mornings. I immediately wake up, fully alert, and ready to go. I am always in a good mood and I never have trouble waking up. If my alarm is set for 3:00am, no problem! My usual wake up time is anywhere between 5am and 6am. If I wake up after 6, I feel like that is sleeping in and it is highly unusual for me. I can go to bed at 2:00am and I will still wake up early!
How long have I been like this? Hmm, I would said at least 5 years. While I was finishing up my chemistry degree, I would wake up around 4:30 every morning to get work done and study. My body adapted so well, it has been like that ever since.
You see, my creative juices are at their highest early in the morning. Thoughts and ideas are just racing out of my brain when I wake up. I can get some serious work done by lunch. In fact, most of my work is done in that time. My family jokes with me that I am like an elderly woman…wake up, have coffee, eat breakfast, take a walk, stretch, work time. Every morning…even on vacations. Oh and yes, that is my favorite coffee mug below! Make sure you follow me on instagram where all these pictures were posted 🙂
We became a family of three!
A little back story of how we got our fur baby…
Growing up, I had a major crush on English Bulldogs. I blame it all on a short, stubby bulldog named Chuckwagon. He was my Great Uncle’s junk yard dog, but he totally stole my heart away. Over the years, I grew to love them more and more. When my husband and I were still dating, circa 2005, we decided to get a dog together. Silly us! He was in the Marines and lived 800 miles away. I was in college, and not exactly a responsible adult. But I was determined to get an English Bulldog! I searched everywhere, but I couldn’t find one in our price range.
I am so excited to share this Really Cute, Easy DIY Desk Tray tutorial for the Office. This is probably my favorite item in my home office right now, and it couldn’t have been easier or cheaper to make!
