Well hello!
Let’s get straight to business today, because I’ve got about 6,700 thoughts and one rambunctious Labrador who doesn’t understand blog updates.

1. That rambunctious ball of chocolate is the best thing ever. Sure she runs at high speeds toward my face, eats my hair and pees on my carpet from time to time–but I love her with all my heart. I’d be remiss in not cataloging some of her finest moments this week 🙂

Bottom center is our first official family photo. Yes, we are those people.

2. This salmon still has my mouth watering.

3. I’ve become a little bit obsessed with KIND Bars. In fact, that’s an understatement. I had 3 yesterday and didn’t even blink an eye. They’re gluten free, GMO-free and for me, worry free. I can eat them until my heart is content without worrying whether or not I’m going to get sick. #winning

My favorite flavor so far as been the Almond & Coconut–it’s like eating an Almond Joy without all the disgusting calories. Oh man, I want one just thinking about it. You can see..this is becoming a real problem..

4. Thanks to all your input, our wedding invitations have been ordered. So stinkin’ excited to get those puppies back and into the mail soon 🙂

5. Home decorating is coming full circle–finally! It seems like we’ve been living in a constant state of disarray since we moved in, but I feel like our house is finally coming together and I’m really excited about it. Here’s a little sneak peek–should I do a full tour post?

And while there are about a billion more things I could talk about today, a certain feisty puppy would rather I watch the Olympics with her. Done and done.

    I love Kind bars. I like their dark chocolate cherry and the peanut butter & strawberry bars. Your pup is so cute. I just adopted a dog 2 weeks ago…he's had his moments, but now I can't imagine him not around!

    So cutttteeeeeeee. Ah we saw a Golden puppy at the beach 2 weekends ago, he was 13 weeks old and it made me want another one… for about 5 minutes then I remember how painful the puppy stage is. It gets easier! She is such a little chunk of cuteness!

    How cute is your newest family member?! I have a chocolate too and he is the sweetest guy in the world. He is 10 now and still has so much spunk and energy.

    I love kind bars! I found some new granola bars by them that are flat and are crunchy and a bit chewy. I like them.

    Yes! of course you should do a home tour
