Our Mini Linky Party | Week 232

Good morning! 

Can you believe we are officially half way through 2019?! 

Adam and I had a crazy work week gearing up for a lot of projects we have had in the making for a while, so this weekend we will be trying as best as we can to relax a bit and slow down to take a breather. Bowie isn't adjusting super well to the heat yet, so we are contemplating going out to buy him a kiddie pool so he can run around and play in some cold water to try to cool down. If anyone has any tips to give dogs and puppies exercise and time to play during the summer we'd love to hear them! 

Strawberry Lemonade Margaritas

Summer is upon us, which means the city has cleared out and the triple-digit weather is here to stay! 

With the temps heating up, it's always fun to bring out the margarita mixer, prepare something delicious and cool to drink, and sit in the shade by the pool. This past weekend, Adam and I were walking around the farmer's market and saw there were some strawberries and limes on clearance so we picked up a bunch and decided we'd make some strawberry lemonade margaritas. We made a stop by Safeway to pick up some triple sec and a few other things we'd need like a large bag of ice and Florida's Natural Lemonade with Strawberry, we went home, and then we brought the blender out to prepare some refreshing, strawberry lemonade margaritas! 

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 231

Happy Saturday! 

Adam and I have a lot going on this weekend, but we are happy that Bowie seems on the up and up and is feeling better. We took him to the vet and it seems as though he just had a stomach bug. After a couple of days of feeling sick, he is finally stopping getting ill and he's back to his playful self. It really is giving us peace of mind to see him doing better! Thank you to everyone who messaged us or commented wishing he would feel better! 

6 Beauty Essentials for a Dry Summer

Summer is here in the valley of the sun, which means it's time to change up my daily beauty routine! 

Well, this is it, y'all! Summer is officially here in Phoenix. We had a good run this spring, and we only had one or two 100 degrees days up until this weekend. But now that it seems that the heat has fallen into the valley it won't be leaving any time soon. 

With all of the dry heat that comes with summer, it requires a specific skin care and beauty regimen to maintain comfortable and healthy skin all season long. From hair care to skin care (and even lip care), today I am sharing more than a few of my beauty essentials that are perfect for helping me survive and thrive while living in the desert in the summertime! 

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 230

Good morning! 

Bowie is feeling a little bit under the weather right now, so we will be spending the weekend tending to him and watching him. He threw up yesterday and the day before, so we are keeping a watchful eye on him and documenting his activities and behaviors. We have an appointment scheduled for Monday with his veterinarian, and we are hopeful that is he okay and maybe just having some minor stomach issues. Please keep Bowie in your thoughts this weekend!
