Bentley’s undergoing surgery on Thursday.
Before surgery, she has to have chest x-rays to check the current condition of her enlarged heart.
At almost 9 years old, homegirl is still a little fighter.
Knowing she’s still very much a puppy at heart, my family collectively decided we’re not quite ready to let her go.
If all goes well pre-op, she’ll be put under, she’ll have a gnarly incision & she’ll have a 10-14 day recovery.
Knowing all this, my co-worker picked Bentley up some “ruffles” to ease the anxiety (read: my stage mom fears).
I love simple, unexpected gestures of kindness.
If you have any good thoughts to spare, please send them our way on Thursday morning.
Bentley & I thank you!

you deal with the bad & you celebrate the hell out of the good.
(at least, most of the time, that’s what i choose to do)
today, Bro #1 received some great news,
& i could not be more proud.
so proud, in fact, that Party City was my first stop before heading home—
who doesn’t love a champagne bottle-shaped balloon bouquet?
it’s been a gorgeous day in Indianapolis, & getting pulled out of a meeting to take a mid-day call from my brother was the proverbial cherry on top.
last night, i had the honor of being apart of my boss’s engagement.
i headed to the airport surprise right after work & then stayed up past my bedtime in order to make cupcakes for the office.
baking has been & will forever be my go to for celebrations,
& turn out, the kids birthday party section might be a close second.
daily outfit: the “bootcut" edition.
gotta love a good bootcut.
gotta really love a good, long bootcut (oh hi, i’m tall).
today might be casual friday, but my new blues sure feel fancy.
in an effort to truly recognize the simple pleasures in my life, i have compiled a list of random happenings that made the last seven days a lot brighter. (& trust me, they were all very much appreciated.)
last night, i set my alarm with the underlying thought that i’d be perfectly fine with not actually waking up to work out.
you see, waking up at 4:15 on Tuesday morning felt totally fine, but waking up yesterday at 7 am felt like a ton of bricks on my body.
this morning, i wasn’t sure what would happen; however, i moseyed out of bed, changed into bright purple running capris & a bright blue tee, & made my way to the treadmill.
after speed-walking for five miles, i opted to finish off with a jog.
a total of nine miles later, i was glad my body woke up against my better judgment.
i often get asked how i work out in the mornings, & besides the forty-five minutes that typically follow, i honestly don’t have a solid answer except i’m much more inclined to work out at 5 am than i am to work out at 6 pm after running around the city for work.
plus, morning endorphins are a great thing, & a good hair day after a solid sweat session doesn’t hurt either!
