life update with a side of pinning.

Y'all! Whew this has been a dooooooozy of a week and it's just now WEDNESDAY! I am linking up today for some pinning but first I wanted to update y'all on where I've been and my holiday weekend.

I spent the holiday weekend with family, MAJOR family time! Friday, my cousin came over to stay the evening with me so we had girl time! {think pretty little liars, nail polish, deep talks, the usual} Saturday was FOOTBALL, we had my parents over to watch the Auburn game because we are BIG auburn fans and then when they left Tripp watched the bama game and I fell asleep {booooo! bama}

Sunday, my dad's side of the family had a labor day/August birthday bash which involved water slides, moon walks and a shaved ice food lie, they know how to throw a party, y'all!
 {mother, father and me!}

Monday, Tripp's granddad came down so we had a nice labor day lunch with his family {no pics, poot!}.

So that concludes my holiday weekend, so why wasn't I with y'all yesterday....well every morning when I wake up I walk the two big dogs to their fence outside for the I was walking them in my OWN yard and both on a LEASH, the neighbors Rottweiler ran over and  JUMPED on my chocolate lab while he was still with me and started mauling him. It was horrifying to watch as I screamed but couldn't get him off of Beau and Beau could barely defend himself. It was a good 10-15 minutes before I could get my dogs away and inside enough to survive..literally the Rott would've killed beau otherwise. So needless to say, yesterday was a work half a day and try to get home to get through the day. The pups are our fur babies so it was pretty traumatizing. Then this morning Tripp and I had to take a day off of work just to take beau to the vet where we had to leave him to get sedated and see what needed to be done. SO that brings us to now and how I've missed y'all and how I hope the rest of the week is peaceful! 

So back to the link up with Going the Distance and Jessi's Design, what have I been pinning?! {all the pictures are linked}

speaking of pups, how cute is this print?! NEED!
 pups, again! Pictures are in 3 weeks! These tips are really helpful when taking your fur babies to family picture day.

this quote is over this thigh gap trend!

and I'm leaving you with this TIP for pumpkin season...

Thanks for stopping by today and being patient with this crazy life of mine! See y'all tomorrow for what I hope is a NORMAL thursday :)


  1. I love the photos that people include their dog! it only makes sense since pets are a huge part of the family. Sounds like a great party! Trish - tales from trish

  2. Loooove - we included Emma Jo in our engagement pics and she did fab!

  3. Sounds like you had such a fun weekend! Girl time is the best time ESPECIALLY if it includes PLL haha and next August can I join your family so I can go to the birthday bash/ labor day celebration?! You had me at water slides

  4. What a fun weekend! I'm hoping everything goes well for your pup. It's always hard seeing mine when she's sick so I can't imagine seeing her go through what yours did. Praying for y'all!

  5. Oh my gosh, Lindsay, that's terrifying! I'm glad that you and the pups are ok! It's always amazing to me how we need time to emotionally recharge when something that is physically scary happens to us. Glad you could recover :)


  6. Umm can we talk about how much I love your outfit in the pic with your parents? So cute! I am SO sorry to hear about what happened to Beau! I'm glad to hear you both are ok but what a traumatizing experience. My little pup was attacked by a dog without a leash over a year ago and I'm still freaked out to take him out sometimes. It's so scary!

  7. haha @ the thigh gap thing. seriously though - ridiculous.

    your poor dog! that is terrifying! my neighbours growing up had some seriously mean rotties and i am terrified of them now.

    i agree with Pamela - your outfit at the party is adorable!

  8. Oh my goodness! You poor thing. And your poor dog! That is crazy scary! Hopefully he is all right. Sounds like you had a nice weekend though...and I am obsessing over your Sunday outfit. Fingers crossed your week is much less eventful than the previous few days!

  9. Oh my gosh I love the pins with the dog photos!!! They are SO cute!! We did a couple of photos with our pup for our engagement pics and they are super cute :)
