My Weekly Instagram Photo Recap // 8/18-8/24 2014

Follow me on Instagram to see these in real time. Come back here every Sunday for all the details.

french bulldogs on a walk

We just started walks again, after their inability to A. figure it out and B. not eat everything they see … and it’s so much better. Trevor pees on everything while Randy doesn’t pee even once. Randy also tries to grab both leashes {most of the time} to tug and walk himself and is so proud when he does so. It’s ridiculously cute but also slightly annoying when we’re just trying to get a little extra exercise in and get some pees out. They’re getting so big… I think they still have another growth spurt though. They’re about 8 months old now. Oh puppies.

sleepy cuddle puppies

Saturday snuggles…

jewelscent candle ring

I love this lavender JewelScent candle and as it was burning last night, I saw a little foil wrapped treasure. I grabbed a small spoon and scooped the gold from the hot wax… when I opened it, I found this gorgeous little ring in the perfect size 6. And though it’s just a little faux bling, it looked really pretty with my pave wedding band.

I think they make super fun gifts with an extra surprise! The jewels hidden inside are said to be worth from $10-$7500! Could you imagine finding a real gem?!

leopard sneakers lazy puppies

Easy Friday style… deconstructed #TargetStyle denim + leopard sneakers and lazy puppies.

frenchie puppies

These two cuties are Trevor & Randy’s other brothers that didn’t come home with us. They were obviously ridiculously cute but they didn’t choose us. If you look closely you can see Trevor & Randy in the foreground loving us up. They were all only 6 weeks old here #TBT to March 2014

old pug

This old pug gets breakfast in bed… and all meals really.

waiting on the patio

Wednesday // waiting on the patio to get my hair done when it suddenly started raining, the clouds covered and thunder rolled in. I watched the ducks speed up their pace and head for the bank, shaking off their feathers as they landed on dry ground. About ten minutes after sitting in my chair, and with only one foil bleached, the power went out in the salon and made things interesting… for only about five minutes when it all shone brightly again.

Dress s/o available in black – fits loosely/oversized. I’m wearing a medium + a tank underneath // Shoes

new blonde hairs

And my new blonde hairs in this ridiculously closeup and rare selfie. Though it’s a bit yellow in the photo, I LOVE the color she gets. If you’re in the area, my stylist is Shannon at Rumors in the village – also totally obsessed with my 3D Fiber lashes. Here, for day, I used just a little and still added length and volume. It’s the best ever.


Held captive, this one, and trying to break free.

feather nails

My pre-fall feathered nails tutorial and manicure lasted about a week. You can see it starting to chip in my first JewelScent photo.

frenchie in the tub

Trevor is obsessed with water. Rain, tub, bowl, spray bottle, in whatever form he can get it, he wants it. We should have known by the way he would drink all the water in the bowl when he was a puppy. He didn’t understand to just take what he needed, but would drink it until it was gone. We had to keep their water in tiny bowls so he wouldn’t explode. He’s fine now with the drinking but does have a bit of an obsession with falling water still.

deck canopy roof plans

We finally got the plans for the overhead canopy/roof for our new deck and officially began our landscaping project. Since it will be winter soon, we’re not sure exactly how much we’ll move forward at this point, but come Spring, it’s so ON!

my puppy heads sleeping

When they sleep, they usually sleep together… it’s pretty ridiculous.

Happy Sunday Lovecats!
