The Proposal


We’re engaged! I am still in shock, completely. My sweet (fiancé – gahhh!) Robert asked me to get hitched on Friday night. I was totally surprised. My mom was in on it and lured me out to the Fayetteville square on the guise of taking family photos. He was completely caught off guard when the square was full of people, horse-draw carriages and even camels. We started walking around and he told me I was the love of his life – to which I said “you’re the love of my life too babe!” I did not get it until he dropped to one knee. I couldn’t believe it and collapsed onto him, hugging him. We are out-of-this world excited. His family honored me with his Great-Grandmother’s ring. Many more details to come!

Bird is 11 Months: Flashback

Remember when I shared that I had acquired the sweetest puppy, Birdie? Cue the cutie-cute puppy pics…

Little baby!

Meeting her “daddy dog”

Well now baby Birdie is a big girl! 40lbs! She is happy and healthy and still the cutest thing ever (in my opinion anyway).

For Halloween, she was a witchy-woman.

With her brother, Mr. Wiggs

More Birdie here! Sorry…I’m a proud mama.

My Christmas List

It’s always fun to dream about what you want for Christmas in a world where your loved ones have copious amounts to spend on you. It’s also good to keep a record of what you’d like to have in case you come into some moola!
