Progression of an Irish Wolfhound

While putting off my math homework today
I went through some pictures on the computer of my sweet baby Maggie

Well....  She was a baby here:
I fell in love with her from this pic, look at the little outline of a heart on her chest!

Not so much anymore.  It's hard to believe it was only a year ago that she was this tiny.  
Now she is a genuine, dyed-in-the-wool monster of a dog...
with the gentle heart of an angel.
(Sounds cheesy and hokey, I know
But it's so true)

I decided to throw together a quick little photo montage of the progression of our Sweet Magma to show you just how much a year has changed her....

Why I think Bloglovin' is Bitchin'

As most all of you know
(And are more than likely SUPER sick of hearing about)
GFC and Google Reader are gonna be bye-bye soon

When I found this out a couple months ago, I was pretty miffed.
I worked my buns off acquiring new friends through GFC and I was proud of the number of readers I had gotten
Only to feel the crushing blow of Google's bad news.

Photo Regrets vs. Just Living It

Some of you may have already read in this post that my husband got a new job.  
We are SUPER excited and ready for this next big step in our lives.  

Well, when we found out that the he had 6 whole days off in a row we decided we were gonna try to have a mini vacay, mostly because with a new job comes a probationary period and no more stocked up vacation days and whatnot and not only that, the new job is an hour and a half from where we live now, a mere 12 miles from my dad and step-mom's front door (Or "Cookie" and "Bandad" as they are called here)

So we thought we should absolutely take advantage of this awesome opportunity while we had it and had no idea when we would have another chance.

We had talked a lot about going snorkeling in the keys and with six whole days we could totes get down to Key Largo and snorkel it up to our hearts content! 
Well....  That my sweet friends did not work out.
We were insanely bummed.
His boss informed him that even though he was scheduled to be off those 6 straight days that he had to come in on Saturday to work a festival in town, right in the MIDDLE of the formerly awesome off days.
My super handsome man, driving me to the beach
