Roar by Katy Perry

Bentley always needs more of my attention when I sit down at my laptop to write on the blog. He has found something good to chew on, so I'm going to write this quickly! Its been an exciting week since I posted the townhouse pictures last week. I flew home, took my sister back to school, met up with some girlfriends, back home for a few days with my parents and brother, celebrated my 26th birthday, then went with my brother to our family reunion for the weekend, with a stop in Scranton to see some of The Office favorite spots! Now I'm back on the west coast, settling back in and hopefully starting work soon! I'm also very happy to report that my dad is back home! After 52 days of being in the hospital and rehab to get his strength back, he is at home. Now please keep my grandpa in your prayers as he is recovering from a stroke. (And of course, Bentley needed my attention halfway through this paragraph, so I clearly didn't write fast enough!)

I found these pink flats for a great deal at Gap. I have a light pink pair from Walmart that I got for $1, but the darker pink is more my color and matches more of my clothes. Hubby surprised me with a Dooney and Burke bag for my birthday that would match perfectly, but I took this outfit picture before my birthday! I always love adding a pop of color to a neutral outfit like this.

Townhouse pictures continued

Today I'm showing you the upstairs of the townhouse! The first floor was finished first so that we could have friends over, and we needed a few more things for the bedrooms before they were finished. So here's the final product! Enjoy!

Welcome to our new townhouse!

I promised pictures of the new townhouse and here they are! Hubby and I are very proud of how it has turned out. We have a lot of people to thank for all their help with giving us IKEA gift cards, helping putting together furniture and hanging curtains, and helping putting final touches in place. Its a pretty great upgrade from our last apartment. I decided since I had so many pictures to split them up between today and tomorrow. So today is downstairs, and tomorrow is upstairs! Enjoy!

We Can't Stop by Miley Cyrus

The perfect time to write a blog post is when Bentley is taking a nap, like he is right now. We took him to puppy class last night and I already see a change in him. He understands sitting for treats, and well, he's not chewing on the carpet because I sprayed bitter apple, that I bought last night, on his favorite spots. The accidents in the house are stopping and he's going to the door when he needs to go out, which is something we've been working on before puppy class. He's starting to learn! :)

Sweatshirt: Target

Usually if I wear a light color like white or yellow, I pair it with something dark, however I decided to go for an all light colored look today and love how it turned out! Its a perfect summer outfit, although when running errands stores keep their air conditioning blasting, so the sweatshirt was to stay comfortable while shopping.
