Lucky Dog Bark and Brew: Donations for Oklahoma!

I watched Miranda Lambert perform at the relief concert for Oklahoma tornado victims. I cried. She cried. We all cried. I probably could have held it together if it weren't for the animals they showed in the background. They are suffering too!

Lucky Dog Bark and Brew is my (and Jerry's) favorite place (more to come on this topic!). The owners are awesome. So awesome in fact, that they are going to take a truckful of donations out to Oklahoma on June 14th.

Check out the Facebook event for more details.

Please, please if you are in the Lake Norman or Charlotte area, take the time to donate to this cause.

Here is the wish list:
  • Pet Beds / Blankets
  • Leashes / Collars
  • Food
  • Bowls
  • Crates
  • Medicine
  • Toys
  • Treats
  • Towels
  • Shampoo 
  • Brushes
  • Work Gloves
  • Anything else you think that could help 

Disclaimer: Lucky Dog has no idea that I wrote this post, and I am not receiving compensation of any kind to promote it. I just love the place!

Blogging again?

Hey everyone, after another long-ish blog hiatus, I hope to be back with some interesting posts! I have a lot going on in my life right now. Exciting things! And I want to be able to document them here.

Let's see. The biggest news is that I am building a townhouse!! They haven't broken ground yet, but I am so anxiously awaiting the news when they will. I have moved so many times over the past 5 years, and I am thrilled to be making a move that will last a bit longer than the past ones.

Jerry is still doing well - he is getting huge! Sitting on my lap as I type. I think he wants his gf Mackenzie the yorkie to get on gchat.

I am going to be doing yet another round of Best Body Bootcamp! Tina has put in a few updates in this round, so if you are looking for something to shake up your routine, this is the place to go! She does a great job putting together thoughtful and effective workouts. The community of participants is great as well! I slacked on the last 2 weeks of this past round due to pure lack of structured gym time. I plan to take this next round a lot more seriously. Once this round ends, I am going to start the New Rules of Lifting for Women program.

I also joined a group for Charlotte-area bloggers - Queen City Blogs. I am looking forward to connecting with others in the area and making new blog friends!!

I will be back soon!!! I made a killer spinach artichoke dip this weekend: recipe to follow.

Jerry's favorite things

So, if you know me in real life, you know (probably way too much) about my dog, Jerry. He is pretty awesome. Crazy, but awesome. Friday is his 6 month birthday and I wanted to share a little bit more about him.

Warning: this is a major photo bomb post... but it's cute puppy pictures, so how can you resist? 

How did I fall in love with Jerry? Well, I saw this little face and HAD to have him. He wasn't even 3 lbs when I got him.

Fun facts about Jerry:

  • He is a pug/chihuahua mix - I think he has some beagle in him too 
  • He has the appetite of a pug, the mannerisms of a chihuahua, and the nose of a beagle. 
  • He weighed in at a whopping 14 lbs yesterday! 

Favorite toy: Lamb Chop (close second: puppies)



Favorite solo activity: Chewing on bones (his other one is NSFW, and it involves Lamb Chop)

Favorite chore: Loading the dishwasher (close second: sorting dirty laundry)

Favorite electronic activity: G-chatting his girlfriend who lives in GA, Mackenzie

Favorite places to lay: on remotes and/or cell phones (close second: anywhere I would like to put my legs/feet)



Favorite form of exercise: Zooming around the apartment in circles (close second: going for walks, taking lots of breaks to rest, or you know, just sit and relax)

Favorite social activity: The bar

Favorite beverage: coffee (close second: beer)



Least favorite thing: being woken up rudely from naps for pictures (close second: dressing up for the holidays)



I hope you enjoyed this picture-filled Jerry recap!!
