February Photo-a-Day Challenge

I have been participating in the February Photo-a-Day Challenge on my Facebook page (since I don't have a Twitter account and really don't want to get one).  For those of you who don't know what the February Photo-a-Day Challenge is, here's the list:

So far I have had a ton of fun trying to be creative with my pictures.  I have reached the half way mark, so I would like to share my "art" with you.

A Late Christmas

                I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.  This is a little glimpse into what our Christmas looked like.  It was very low key with just JM, JD, P, and I.  This was the first Christmas I spent away from my parents and brothers, but the first one I spent with just my little family of fur kids and JM.  As simple as it was, it was a memorable one.  Best wishes to all of you out there (if you're out there).

Five Words Friday

I stumbled across this blog called Five Words and absolutely loved it.  

{The rules}:

The game’s name is short.
It’s not even Five Words.
Yet, Five Words it is!
Some wonder, “What’s it about?”
Your goal is quite simple.
Express yourself in Five Words.
Don’t use more, or less.
So, give it a try.
Five Words can express it.
Five Words and you’re done.

So I thought I would start something new, {Five Words Friday}.  It’ll be a cute, short, and simple way to end the week, and I would love to see what everyone else comes up with.  So here it goes, my first Five Words Friday….well sort of.

Time to go tree shopping!

Subway Art

                I have officially jumped onto the subway art fanatic train.  So much that I have been planning on creating my own version of a conversation starter when people enter our home, kind of like a coffee book.  After much web searching, Etsy window shopping, Pinterest inspiration, and tutorials, I finally mustard my inner creativity to put together my own subway art for the first time (EEK!).

My inspiration I found on both Etsy and Pinterest

My attempt on my home town (or as close to a home town a military brat can get)

and it wouldn't be complete if I didn't make one for JD.  However I'm thinking about tinkering around some more with this one.

                Eventually I want it to end up looking like this, (but with my layout) which is where I found a super easy and unique tutorial for those who don't have a Cricut, which I don't.

Turkey Day Glance Back

                Thanksgiving came and went just as fast as Halloween did.  Since it was just JM and I, and of course the furry ones, we decided to indulge the puppies with some tasty Turkey Day food.  I think seeing them so happy was worth a minor case of the poo-poos.

Bobbing For Bits

                I don’t know about other pugs, but when it’s feeding time Mr. P acts as if we never feed him.  He has to make sure he gets every last kibble; even those that may have accidently gone overboard into the water bowl.

The kibble won this round.

                Halloween came and went, and I’m a bit bummed.  I didn’t get to do any of the things that make the holiday special.  No pumpkin carving, no decorating, and no dressing up to go out.  Definitely insert a SAD FACE here!  I tried to dress the wee ones up, and even bought them matching costumes (because in my world they have to go together like peas and carrots).  I was going to make P a monkey and JD a banana, but JM didn’t like them very much so I had to return them.  Originally I wanted these costumes

but there were two minor snafus.
  1. The raptor didn’t come in JD’s size, and
  2. They were sold out everywhere, even though they were a bit on the pricey end.  (Pricey = over $35 for one)

Since it didn’t come in JD’s size I found this,

that way they could still match, but even the triceratops hat was sold out for her size.  Oh well.  However I did try to make P a mummy pup, but he ended up looking more like a severely injured chug (chihuahua pug), so I unraveled him and let him off the hook…..this year.

Since I didn’t do a whole lot of adventuring on Halloween, here are some pictures of the pumpkins my brother and his wife carved that I just can’t get enough of.

isn't Mac D adorable in her monster costume???

P.S.  Comments make me HAPPY!
