dog days

let me start off by saying, we LOVE to spoil our dog. lol so when we found out there was a dog park in greenville we KNEW we def. had to bring our raider. we couldnt wait. if you love your furry babies i def. recommend bringing them. its located in downtown greenville, sc at cleveland park right near the greenville zoo. and if your not near sc then google dog parks and bring em! its a blast. our poor baby didnt even know how to react at first, but he fit in just fine after about ten min. he had so much fun and we had fun watching him. he even looks like hes smiling in the last picture. lol he was so tired by the end of it that he fell asleep standing up in the car on the way home. lol

late halloween post

i realized since my things had been stolen i never even go to post anything for halloween! well better late than never! i LOVE halloween. i mean LOVE it. i love watching AMC halloween specials with all the jason and micheal myers (who scares the pee out of me lol) movies. i love carving pumpkins. i love dressing up and i love candy. i dont care how old you are halloween is just fun. lol well my fiance tends to think otherwise. hes the biggest scrooge ever when it comes to halloween. but i ignore it and have fun anyway (; lol granted he did and always has helped me carve a pumpkin (: (our castle pumpkin is pictured above) this year i basically had to beg him to dress up with me...our plans ended up changing and falling through and my purse and phone were stolen the night before we were going out so we ended up not dressing up ): not how i wanted it to go but we still had a really good time. especially towards the end of the night while we made fun of all the girls costumes. i mean honestly if i can see your hooha, your costume is too small. lol but we got to take our little baby, raider (hes a puppy lol) to a petsmart halloween event down the road and dress him up as a land shark and have our picture taken, which was a lot of fun. and on halloween night i got to dress up (just a little) and go trick or treating with my family and siblings. my little brother who is 4, decided to be jason. lol yes jason. he loves the movies and i must say he had the most badass costume of the night. i improved because everyone was putting on face paint and decided to be a sugar skull. now mind you, i am not artistic. i have no artistic bone in my body, but i tried. lol so dont laugh. but the important thing is i had a great time and i cant wait til halloween next year!

temporarily on hold

so sorry that i havent been posting lately...things have been hectic! my purse and my iphone was recently stolen. my purse which cost 400 dollars itself also carried ALL of my belongings. inside was my makeup (about 100 dollars worth), a giveaway prize i just won (worth about 100), my keychains on my keyring ive collected since i was little, pictures of my grandpa who passed away in my wallet, my wallet (which contained money, drivers license, social security card, insurance card, etc...), some of my diabetic supplies (over 700 dollars worth), jewelry, my iphone (with over 2,000 pictures and memories on it) and other miscillanious things. needless to say i was heartbroken. i also learned my lesson about keeping your life in your purse, NEVER AGAIN. ladies, let this be a warning to you. DO NOT CARRY ANYTHING BESIDES THE NECESSITIES IN YOUR PURSE! anyway, i wrote this post to basically say, i will not be posting on my blog for a little while...i have no internet access, except for the library (where i am currently at) and my phone (which was stolen). also the holidays are coming up and things will be crazy for a little while. so i hope everyone had a great halloween and has a great thanksgiving. youll hear from me asap. <3
