Unexplainable Things #5

My Dad

Happy Monday everyone!!! 

I have been trying hard lately to come up with a post. My mind has been so busy on other things going on. I started school, and it’s taken up a bit of time for me. But don’t get me wrong…..I love it!!! Anyways, before I get off track…..MY DAD …. He is completely UNEXPLAINABLE. I know you may be a little confused it you read my last post. Well what I mean is, this is my dad who raised me. Yes, he’s my step dad, but he’s my dad! With that being said, he was the first thing to come to mind for an UNEXPLAINABLE post! I have been thinking about him a lot lately because of Valentines day right around the corner. When I think of Valentines day….. I think of him! My dad is not a sensitive person, nor does he ever do ANYTHING sweet on his own. Well, that all changes on Valentines day…… My dad goes out of his way EVERY year to get me, my mom, and sister something special. I always look forward to Valentines day because of this. There is never a year that I’m without a Valentine! Thanks dad, I love you!!! 

Pleaseeeee don’t be upset with me for putting you on the “INTERNET” lol 😉

My mom tells everyone our family puts the DYS in DYSfunctional 

I like to think we just put the FUN in dysFUNctional!!!

So here goes……. Meet my Unexplainable Dad!!!!

Top 5 Reasons Why Westies are the Besties

If your considering purchasing a puppy you should consider a West Highland Terrier, he or she would be a great addition to anyones family!

MEET “SISSA” OUR WESTIE PUPPY

IMG_9884IMG_9886

BELOW ARE THE TOP 5 REASONS WHY I THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE A WESTIE.

1. West Highland Terriers are extremely smart- Our puppy is very smart. We have had no problem potty training her. She has had only a few accidents, but that is expected. We have crate trained her and it seems to be working great. Another thing to keep in mind is when we brought her home she didn’t bark or cry all night like most puppies. Sissa also is responding well to commands such as, sit, lay down, and stay.

2. They are great around other animals- Our puppy gets along great with all other kinds of animals. We have taken her around big dogs, little dogs, and even pigs with no issues. She gets along so well that sometimes I feel the animals are annoyed by her. :)) All she wants to do is play.

3. Westies are great with small kids and other family members-  Sissa loveeeeeesss her brothers, she plays with them everyday. I have two little boys that play rough, but it doesn’t faze her one bit, she gets right in there with them. The love Sissa has for her brothers is also so strong as well. She really is such a great addition to our family.

4. Westies are very sweet and love to be loved- Sissa loves to be snuggled. She is super sweet. To say she is a hugger is an understatement. There is also no denying that she is a “daddies girl”. Although she is little, she has a big, huge heart of gold.

5- Our Westie will speak to us- Sissa will let us know by a certain bark when she has to go potty. Sissa will also let us know when someone is at the door. With that being said she is a great alerter but also a cheerful greeter. 🙂

Even though Westies are super cute and snuggly they do have a little Sass to them. I found this list on Google and it seems to be spot on with Sissa. 🙂

Hope you have enjoyed a little insight on a West highland Terriers. If your thinking about getting a puppy for your family, I would defiantly go with a Westie 🙂 If you have any questions about Westies, please feel free to comment….

#1 Cure for the Winter Blues

I know I’m not alone when it comes to experiencing a case of the WINTER BLUES

#1 CURE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*A SNOW DAY*~~~~~~TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE

img_1321.jpg

I have been a little down lately, maybe it’s the cold weather, maybe it’s because I look outside and I see dead trees, and brown grass? Maybe it’s personal issues? I know I am not perfect and neither is my family. I have always wanted the perfect little family, but does that exist? We are far from perfect, but i’m perfectly fine with that. In fact, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being a parent is not easy. I give it my all and take it day by day. Some days are easier then others. I make mistakes, but I’m learning right along with them and it’s all just a process hoping for the best outcome. Anyways I won’t blab on, I just want you all to know you‘re not alone, and no ones perfect. I see a lot of blogs that look and seem perfect, along with their INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK, relationships, and their family. I am here to tell you it’s not real. I promise everything I post is real life.

Although the sun wasn’t shining, today’s snow day has really cheered me up, and brought me some happiness. I just wanted to share a little sprinkle of that ……

This is an image rarely caught….. So rare that it was almost impossible to get them to smile and look at the camera at the same time.. hehe

Our puppy “Sissa” even enjoyed her say

We “tried” to take a family picture in front of our snowy home.  I still like our photo, it was the best we could do . lol

We even enjoyed some pizza…

We tried to play twister. I thought I could play with the boys… I had no idea I would do so terrible. Note~ TWISTER is not made for adults or four year old … lol.. I guess it was ok because Fysh was doing just as bad as me…

The red lip stick also helped cheer me up ;)… I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. Take full advantage of another day alive, and healthy….. Sometimes it’s hard to find happiness in your days. Just know your not alone. There is a little bit of happiness in everything, you just have to look.  With lots of love ❤

XO…

Christmas Interview with a special little Elf ~ Part 1~

I would like to introduce my crazy little elf , meet Fysh.

IMG_0942

As I was trying to think of something Chirstmasy  for the past few days that I haven’t seen on any one else’s blog and then it came to me, an interview with my youngest  son who is four and very excited about Christmas. I thought it would be super cute, and with his imagination, definitely worth the read. My son comes up with the craziest things, I guess he get’s that from his momma ;). I hope you all enjoy this interview about Christmas as much as I enjoyed giving it!!  I am also going to be posting the same in interview with my oldest son who just turned ten!! Please feel free to comment and share. I would love to see the same interview with other little ones.

Merry Christmas! Xo
