I love this photo of Faye and Charly so much. They truly adore each other. And, yes, Charly is a very good sport. But, besides Greta and Faye, she is more of an adult dog. Screaming, running kids freaks her out which usually scares the kids. She’s never bitten anyone, ever. But when a 160 pound dog starts running after you because you are screaming and running after one of her girls (meaning, Greta and Faye) she doesn’t know what else to do. So when friends are over, we have to enforce the “no running in the house” rule a little more strictly. And we try to take time to let every friend pet Charly and scratch her backside–that’s the key to her heart. And that haircut of hers? That’s the key to mine. (No more vacuuming every day!)
Other fun things this week!
This is kind of older new news, but I’m so excited for Emily Henderson’s new house. And Lauren Leiss’s! Anytime a blogger, friend or family member buys a new home–I feel like I bought a new home. While I look at home listings for fun, we are feeling very content and happy living here. It’s finally starting to take shape and it feels fun to go work on a reno job in a mess downstairs, and come upstairs to something beautiful and finished. A feeling that’s still very new.
Does your state have a signature scent? I love the idea of these homesick candles. My home state of Pennsylvania’s smells like chocolate and molasses–which is a lot more welcoming than the kielbasa and pierogies I remember it smelling like.
Congrats girl! Fiancé of former Miss California scoops his 25th medal (If we talked about Michael Phelps or any male olympian the way we talk about female athletes)
Pros And Cons Of The ‘Tiny House’ Movement (It’s likely too cramped for ghosts to bother haunting–hahaha!)
Serena & Lily is having their annual tent sale, which means hundreds of items are 40-70% off. Since Serena & Lily is a generally a pricier brand for our budget, I was skeptical at how low the prices were going to be. But! I’m happy to report, they have a lot of throws and pillows in the $30 range. Area rugs (as big as 8×10!) for just a couple hundred dollars and furniture at Target prices. (Not to mention, my favorite skinny belt is just $19.) It’s definitely worth checking out. I rounded up my picks below.
Hope you have an awesome weekend. I’m still caulking the office. It’s the wooooorrssssttttt.
