Good morning! Happy Hump Day! I spent yesterday afternoon hanging out with my nephew, Matthew. He’s so darn cute. I loved watching him squirm around, make funny faces, and do other adorable baby things. Long story short, I always smile when I see Matthew, and it inspired this blog post. I always smile when… I […]
This dog… I love him more than anything and, boy, does he make me happy. I honestly can’t imagine my life without him. I also can’t imagine him with any other name than “Murphy.” When Mal and I took Murphy to the dog park this past weekend, we met another Murphy there (an older Yellow […]
It was 95 degrees yesterday, which, as we say in our house, is “too hot for pugs.” I waited until the early evening to take Murphy for his afternoon walk, but it was still too hot for him. When we returned from our walk, Murphy was panting like crazy and sort of pacing around our […]
Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July! My 4th was a ton of fun, but also really relaxing at the same time because we didn’t have any set plans and just hung out and relaxed for two days straight. Mal, Murphy, and I spent the 4th (and 5th) at my in-law’s […]
Good morning, friends! The other day, I read a statistic in Real Simple that 94% of pet owners talk to their animals as if they were human. It’s theorized that we chat with our pets because we believe they hear us better than anyone else does—even if the conversation is one-sided. We sense their regard […]
Guess who turned four years old yesterday? Yep, our little pug is a year older. I still remember the day we got him. He was so tiny and now he’s all grown up. I still can’t believe he’s four. Where does the time go? Murphy’s friend, Clark, was one of the first dogs to wish […]
Hey there! I’m off to Annapolis for ZOOMA this morning. I’ll be away for approximately 30 hours, so I packed light and threw together everything in about 10 minutes, which is definitely a PR for me. Usually, it takes me days to pack for a trip. Included in my packing was all of my drugs […]

Question of the Day What was the BEST thing you ate yesterday? Mine was a toss up between the wasabi hummus and the stone ground chocolate. Mmm! Loved them both!
Hi, friends! Happy Friday! Breakfast I got home really late from Milwaukee (here’s what I was doing there) on Wednesday night (technically Thursday morning), so I slept in a little and then woke up hungry for breakfast. Our kitchen looked pretty pathetic food-wise (I mean, we were totally out of bananas, which is no way […]

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! I hope your day is off to a great start! Murphy literally RAN back to bed after he ate his breakfast this morning. Apparently, he’s not a fan of Wednesdays. Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was an oldie, but goodie: Van’s waffles with Teddie peanut butter and banana slices. It hit […]
Some of my favorite posts to write on CNC are the ones I call “I Bet You Didn’t Know.” If you’re not familiar with them, here are the ones I’ve written so far: I Bet You Didn’t Know I Bet You Didn’t Know II I Bet You Didn’t Know III I Bet You Didn’t Know […]
