The first thing I see when I wake up! My two year old toy poodle Ellie. I mean could you die?
My husband is on coffee patrol. We usually wake up around 7. I know gross right? Guess which mug is his? Hint: princess
We have a visitor this week, our friend's dog is a poodle mix named Tabasco. He is staying with us. Family walk.
Let's hang out here before mommy has to go pretend for a living to buy you fancy organic dog food.
This is our parrot Seagal. Yes, named after Steven Seagal. It's a long story but he's adorable and can say my husband's name, as well as the words Mama!, Oh Boy!, Hello!, the phrase "Ellie whatta doin?" and he does lip trill warm ups with me.
This is the part of the morning when my husband is playing a game and I'm annoying him about something and he's ignoring me. Marriage.
At 8:30 am everyday except Sunday, I have a scheduled sitdown time to write in my office. A buddy and I clock in via text and then set off. 15 min minimum a day usually longer. It's all about getting my butt in that chair! No one is gonna write it for you
Husband made me lunch!
I made Sangria for my sister's party. Gotta soak the fruit in the heavy booze first for 24 hrs. Priorities.
Oh hey guys! Yeah tomorrow we will work out. Hmmm maybe not. #fatass
