A few days ago i was testing out my creative coloring skills in dog grooming. I used Critter Color, which is a plant based dye for dogs that is formulated for their ph, and is PETA approved. 

Check out Peanut's new do. Cute, right? It washes out easily, and is temporary.

There was a lot of talk about Macy's having a float in their annual parade from Seaworld. If you haven't seen the documentary yet, you should see Blackfish.

I was hoping that Macy's would listen to the number of people who signed the petition to pull the float. They didn't. I'm disappointed. I had no idea the treatment of the animals and fish at Seaworld was so poor. Not until I saw Blackfish. 

I rarely shop at Macy's. And now that they backed a corporation that abuses the animals they say they are trying to protect, I don't think I can bring myself to shop there. And best believe I will not set foot in a Seaworld anytime soon.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. We all have plenty to be thankful for, including our family and friends. We woke up today to a beautiful day, be thankful. Fill this day full of love and food. And give to those who don't have. It's time for me to clean out my closet and donate my gently used clothes to charity.

Happy 1st day of October!  Well maybe not so happy since the goverment got their panties in a bunch and decided to shutdown. But let's make the best of today! Even the the shutdown will affect everyone, not just goverment employees. I'm a dog groomer by profession, and if the people do come in to get heir dog groomed here will be less add on services, and that means less money in my check. Also, less tips. You may not think to tip your dog's groomer, but you tip your hairdresser, right?  Same thing, just for your dog. 

As of right now all my tips are going into my savings for the wedding. And there is not much in there, since life keeps poppin up with surprises. Hopefully we can get enough together to do a small wedding on the beach. Which would be ideal for me. I'm not knocking a court house wedding, I just don't feel it is for me. 

Ok. So enough of this and on to something more fun. I took Peanut in for a bath and haircut. I had picked up a pack of blow pens a couple of weeks ago, and decided to have some fun with them. Of course Peanut was the test subject. He is possibly the best test subject ever!

So i did a little arts and crafts today. I made some eyeball flowers for halloween. It's very easy to do. All you need is a glue gun, glue, fake flowers, and eyes. Glue eyes to flowers, and done.

Mark and I hung a humming bird feeder on the back deck. It's small, but awesome. We have gotten so many visits by humming birds. And a few of them have been caught on camera by Mark's go pros.

Tonight I am opening my jewelry box and trying to find one item a new home.

With my upcoming wedding, and the broken tooth Peanut has, I decided that it's time to free up some space in my jewelry box.  I have some lovely items, and they need loving homes. 

As a trial to see if my idea will work.  I have listed this lovely choker style rhinestone necklace.  I got it at an antique store, and have only worn it a couple of times.  But it's not really my style.  So if you want to bid and possibly win this lovely item, be sure to stop by and step right up.  Starting bid is $2.00, and $5.00 for shipping and handling. 

My necklace will be in the daily bazar 5 pm auction.

Ok I think this is pretty neat.  Recently the Baltimore Aquarium added a new exhibit, the black tip reef sharks.  It looks pretty cool.  Can't make it to the aquarium?  That's ok.  The discovery channel and the aquarium teamed up for shark week and you can watch by clicking the link below.

So, after my trip to NYC to cheer on Mark for his Triathalon, I came with a pretty nasty summer cold.  I have not been able to shake the remaining chest congestion and sinus pain and presure.  It sucks.  So today I finally went to see me doctor.  It's bronchitis again for me.  It seems like that now that I am grooming dogs, breathing in all kinds of pet hair and dander particles, that when I get a cold it mutates to bronchitis.  It kind of sucks.  But I have meds and am on my way to recovery.  Thank goodness.  But when I got to the doctor's office I spotted this Yellow Monarch. 

So pretty. 

It seems there have been a lot of butterflies this summer.  I like it.

Blind dogs love Barkbox's too!

Are you looking for something to get your pup, but feel you should donate to animal rescues/shelters instead. Well then you should get your dog a barkbox. 

It's a monthly subscription that delivers goodies for your dog to your door, and helps charities, rescues, and shelters. If you copy and paste this link ( to your browser you can get $5 off your first barkbox. 

So, if Peanut whos is blind enjoys it, i imagine your pup will go crazy.

Got to go to New York City this past weekend. Mark was participating in the Aquaphor triathalon, and he biked 26 miles in an hour and forty five minutes. Wow! I'm so proud of him.

The guys from the tv show Tanked built this aquarium in the Annapolis Mall, Maryland. Pretty neat.

So if you get the chance to read this book, you should. It was wonderful I felt like I was in South Africa and living the life Delia lives. Plus my friend Shari Rood wrote this book and I cannot help but feel proud of her for this achievement.

Through the Cane Fields

So just click the link above and get the book for your kindle.  Since this is a new book, and very recently listed, I am not sure if it is available in other formats.

This is the only plant I haven't killed yet. Pink Dianthus.

I ordered Peanut a barkbox.  It’ s pretty cool.  A barkbox is a box of goodies for your dog.  10% of all proceeds go to shelters and rescues.  Inside of Peanut’s barkbox were some toys, treats, and bath wipes.

Ok, so a couple weeks ago I bought a new pair of boots off the Steve Madden Website.  I love them!  I am totally wearing them next week when I go out to dinner with the future in-laws so that I look beautiful and stylish. 


Ok, so one thing I dislike about them is that when they get up to my calf muscle, I have issues zipping them up.  What is it with shoe manufacturers making boots for the girl who weighs in at 75 pounds soaking wet?  Why can’t they make boots for the average, everyday girl?  You know, those of us who actually have calf muscles! Those of us who run, walk, and actually live a productive life. 

But I still love those boots!

I bought these cute leggins/tights from They have hot air balloons on them. I ordered them last month and there was some delay. So as an added bonus they sent me some patches, and a coupon. I cannot wait to purchase from them again. ❤

Today at Wegmans I decided to purchase something I don't usually eat. It's called a Rambutan fruit. It was mild yet kind of sweet. It has a big seed in he middle and you have to peel the outer skin to get to he fruit in the middle. I hought it was pretty good.
