I Got Worms

Theres shaky camera footage of me when I was no more than 3, trying to pick up a worm off of the driveway. I say trying because I had a giant puffy pink mitten on. It’s actually kind of frustrating to watch me fail so many times. Like change your strategy girl, take off that

My New Boss

All my life I wanted a big dog, and when my mom said, NO!” I did what any child would do, I asked Dad. But he also said no. The, “But I will take care of it, “ only works once and I already messed that one up over a pet hamster. There’s gotta be something unsettling about

Picking Up Chicks and Other Manly Things

Dan: Hey Grace, later this week I’ll be picking up 12 chicks. Me: Yay! I can’t wait for you to bring them home. I will love them and they will be my friends. Before you think my husband and I have some kind of strange marriage arrangement, let me explain. The twelve

Adventures in Nala Land Pt 2

My last post was all about our new pack member, Nala, and how she has been keeping us on our toes from her Houdini act of escaping from the laundry room with only 3 working legs, to her disappearing act in a huge state forest. She’s definitely a girl, because she likes to cause

Adventures in Nala Land Pt 1

When we rescued Chase, he was such a mess that he did nothing for days. And I mean, nothing. We didn’t hear a peep out of him for at least 3 days. It was Dan who had to carry him out to go to the bathroom because he wouldn’t move out of his pink bed, he would just play possum.

Chase and Nala Sittin’ in a Tree

Chase has a new girlfriend, which we think may actually be his sister. But it’s ok, cause we live in Virginia now. Dan and I decided the next dog we would get, would be some type of guard dog. A solid black german shepherd, a dobie, or maybe something that bred with a wolf. But

The Advantage of Being Disorganized

Bloggers block is a real thing, yo. And I have had it bad lately. It’s not for lack of stuff going on in my life. I think I’ve just had trouble organizing my thoughts, because I still spend a good chunk of my day trying to organize the house and each project I have going on.

From Goo to Blue

Before we started house hunting, we made a wishlist of what we both wanted. A pool was at the top of my list. I have so many fond memories of swimming every summer at my cousins house when I was younger. The bloodshot eyes after a long day of opening my eyes under water, tinted

I Choose You

I’ve always really cared for animals (especially the wounded) ever since I was a little girl. I used to bring home baby birds, bunnies, and once a baby mouse that I found while riding my bike when I was 10 years old. I rode my bike back home with one hand and the mouse in the

I’m Gonna Hug You and Kiss You and Love You Forever

When we were house hunting, one of the things that surprised me the most about the South, is the amount of stray dogs roaming around. I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that not in all states do you see dogs in baby strollers, dressed up in costumes for Halloween or tiny heads
