Crazy busy, some news and taking a little blog break :-)

Hello!!! How is everyone? It has been super crazy here especially with school starting back up and dance classes, etc. Kathleen is so far enjoying her new dance school and the classes.

                      Been busy meal planning and prepping to get us through our busy weeks!

Kathleen went to the eye doctor and she will be getting her new glasses soon! It was inevitable.. we all wear them! But she is very excited to get hers. She did amazing at the eye doctor's I was so proud of her. They even numbed her eye to do the glucoma test. I've always had the puff of air test before so this was something new. I give her credit because I don't want anything touching my eyes! LOL. She was a trooper!

 Been busy with my business also and juggling several things at one time. Multi tasking always, lol.

I'm going to take a little blogging break as I am preparing this week for a trip. Jerry and I leave next week while my parents stay at our home to take care of the girls and the animals, etc. Will post an update with lots of pictures when we get back. :-)

                                                              Enjoy the rest of October!!!!

Review of Professional Pet Grooming Tools by The Pet Store #ThePetStore

Being an animal lover like so many other people, we are always looking for great quality products that will benefit our animals. Even though 3 of our 4 dogs get professionally groomed every few weeks, we still brush them in the meantime.

I recently reviewed this grooming brush and training clicker from The Pet Store. Along with this product they included free ebooks for tips on training and more.

Kathleen wanted to help out with the review as she loves spending time taking care of our dogs and she was really excited about learning to use the clicker for training. The clicker is attached to a bracelet to keep easily on your wrist while working with your pet. Be sure to read the ebook for tips and tricks on training.

Bella, our little white dog is looking at the camera like what is going on mom? Something new?! ;-)

All the dogs were curious, but Owen our sweet boy to the left was the one that decided he was going to get the benefits of having his photo taken, lol.

This brush is made for grooming and has short, hard stainless steel as it's comb. So while it is effective in grooming, I would not suggest pushing too hard while brushing them.

           Owen seemed to enjoy it, I think he just thought he was getting his back scratched! ;-)

 A feature that is really nice with this product is it comes with a nice plastic cover to protect the brush. The button you see on top is to release the cover from the brush then you are ready to use it.

                                           It fits nicely in your hand making it easy to use.

  Overall I think it is a nice little set and our dogs seem to give it the thumbs up. :-) The company has a money back guarantee, so if for any reason you are not satisfied, just contact them and they will make it right.


* I received this product for a discounted price in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. *

Spirit Week, Picture Day and Enjoying the Fall Evenings

If you follow me on Instagram you will recognize a couple of these pictures. Hayley's homecoming and spirit week is this week and she dressed up as a nerd, her inspiration was Erkel... lol anyone remember him from the show Family Matters? I used to love watching it when I was younger.

                                                                  (Both are Google Images)

I teased her hair up on top and made it messy, good thing I had all that experience from growing up in the 80's LOL!

Kathleen had her picture day this week and chose her own outfit for it. She looked so beautiful, can't wait to see how they turned out. :-)

It is still quite warm here in the south and I am surprised how well my plants are blooming and thriving on my front porch for it being October already! Never would have happened in Ohio! ;-)

              We are enjoying the evenings and walking our dogs around our yard and pond.

Skippy has been in his glory running his heart out, we have to keep him on a leash as well as our other dogs because they love to run and then they end up lost... so we keep them on leashes for their safety. We also have some very hungry hawks keeping a look out!

                                     Hayley wearing her Stitch hat and walking Patches :-)

Skippy loves to jump in the water and he tries to reach the ducks. Here is a video of him and Kathleen and you can hear the trains in the background. I just love it here....

This is one of my absolutely favorite pictures of the night, how they are running and her hair is all out.... :-)

Don't worry we'd never let him reach the ducks, but they are pretty tough they don't seem phased by him at all! Probably thinking silly dog, you'll never catch us we can fly! LOL

Our pond is really low, we could use more rain as it has been a dry summer. It's actually like a small beach has formed!

Jerry was enjoying some time to wash and clean out his truck. It has been on his to do list for quite some time!

                                                           Skippy enjoying his swim!

                                                                        So lovely out...

        Kathleen loves listening and dancing to Elvis in the mornings before going out to the bus :-)

Another part of spirit week was character day so Hayley represented the Incredibles and made her own sweatshirt. I was dropping Kathleen off at her dance class and just had to get a selfie of the 3 of us.

Kathleen made these napkins holders for my mom's party that she is having this weekend coming up. My mom sent me this photo of them lined up on her arm :-) She made them out of Rainbow loom bands.

As I previously mentioned I am now an independent presenter for Younique cosmetics and I just love owning my own international makeup company! My link is in the side bar if you'd like to look over the products we offer. :-) I created this picture the other day featuring the benefits of our uplift serum. Absolutely love the results and as you see my youth came back pretty quickly, lol ;-)

Have an amazing weekend and prayers going out to all those being affected by hurricane Mathew!!! Stay safe!!!
