Wildcard Wednesday

So I knew it was going to snow yesterday, but had not a clue that it would actually continue all through the night! I woke up this morning and looked out my windows, and there I saw the ground covered in white. I of course ran back into my bedroom to turn on the TV to see if schools would be cancelled for the day (which would mean no work for this girl) and low and behold, they were! But since I was out sick on Monday, I decided to go into the office anyways to get a few things done. 

YES, I am proud of myself and am determined to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN today! After being sick for four straight days, it made me think about how much time I actually waste doing things that don't matter (or aren't as important). For instance, the time I spend on Pinterest is unreal! I am kind of ashamed of it actually. So I did a lot of think these past few days, and realized that there are so many other things that I could be doing to use my time wisely each and every day. Like creating a binder for blogging and photography related things. Or spending more time training Miller and giving him the attention that he needs.

So I had to start somewhere right? Well, instead of going home yesterday and putting my pj's on and watching TV, I decided to bundle up and take Miller for a nice long walk around our neighborhood...in the snow. And can I tell you how much fun it was?! Seeing Miller's reaction to the snow made me laugh so hard. Yeah it was cold, and I could have been inside doing who knows what, but watching Miller stop and stand still every few steps that he took because he had no idea what the heck was on the ground and falling from the sky just made my day. It's those little things that make life so special. I thank God for giving us little things like snow and pups to keep up company. He is so good, and meets all of our needs and surpasses all of our expectations!! Wouldn't you agree?
Also, I just wanted to take a another moment real quick to announce the winner of the Oakleigh Rose giveaway and to thank everyone who participated! I was astonished at how many people entered to win, and couldn't be any happier with the outcome! So without further ado, the winner of the giveaway is Jennifer from Simply So Lovely! Thank you SO much Jennifer for taking the time to 'play to win' and hope you enjoy using your gift card!


  1. Love this! Getting stuff done- I feel like that's what 2014 is for. No excuses!

  2. So funny!! Poor Bentley didn't really want to have anything to do with it ha!

  3. Yes, girlie!!! The fact that he blesses us beyond our expectations is so Eph 3:20!! Glad you and Miller went on a walk together. Snowy walks are irreplaceable!!! :)

  4. My poor Izzie is not a fan of all the snow we've been getting! Glad y'all got to venture out for a bit


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
