Im a Mommy!!!

A fur babies mommy that is! 
(I had ya a little fooled didn't I!)

Justin and I have been wanting to get a dog for a very long time now!
Now that we are both living in the same place our dream could finally become a reality!
Justin has never had a dog, or any other pet for that matter, because his parents wouldn't let him, so as you can imagine he reallllly wanted a dog! He has always loved loved loved bulldogs for as long as I can remember but he still loves about any dog he see's so preference really wasn't an issue when we decided to started to think about getting a dog. 
Saturday night Justin and I were looking online at dogs in pounds around our area and decided that the next day we would go to the pound here in Stillwater just to look and see.

On our way to the pound we saw a guy selling some puppies in a parking lot by the road (sounds kinda sketchy but its a pretty normal thing here in Oklahoma) and like any right minded man would do with a woman yelling "Pull Over!! Pull Over!! Lets Go See What They Look Like!!!", Justin did. Once we walked up and saw the little puppies I was already in love! Justin asked what kind of dogs they were and the guy told us she is a bulldog and pitbull boxer mix. Right then I had the feeling we would not be leaving with out a puppy!
We played with those little pups for quite awhile and fell in love with a beautiful little girl with brindle and white fur. Turns out this little lady was the man selling her's favorite and so her price was higher than the other three but we knew she was more than worth it!

 After she was officially ours we took our little puppy straight to Pets Mart. We must have been pretty obvious new parents because a dog trainer employ came up to us as we were staring up at kennels with faces of complete wonder, nervousness, happiness, and cluelessness and asked if we needed help. We then started asking any kind of question involved with puppies imaginable and luckily Beth from Pets Mart knew her stuff like no bodies business! 
We left with a kennel, a mattress for the kennel, a orange color and matching leash, two toys, three bags of treats and a bag of food. I'd say we pretty much covered all the basics and we were ready to spoil our little princess. 

It took us a while to pick out her name but as we were checking out we decided on Karley. Karley Marie  Kanipe to be exact! 
Now Justin and I are proud puppy parents and we could be happier to now have a little plus one! Bringing her home, taking her to potty, playing non stop, chasing each other around the house, its all a major event now. Oh and let me tell ya I have never been so camera ready in my life! My Iphones memory is already half way full with pictures of Karley!
She's just soo precious isn't she?!?! I can already prepare you with the fact that Miss. Karley is going to become pretty popular on this her blog! So just be ready for Raids of Orange to go up about ten levels of cuteness!

I hope you had a very happy weekend and your Monday is spectacular!!

I know mine will be when I can get back home to that little darling!

Yeah thats pretty much what my mind is like right now. 

I even searched explosion, mush, and craziness on pinterest to find a picture to explain even more how I am feeling inside the head but there just was nothing that could quite explain it. 

So because of my lack of topic and motivation to upload pictures from the past two day's events I am going to leave you with this....

"I definitely need a new suitcase"

Seriously so cute and so funny!! 

Happy Weekend Friends!

Let's Get a Little Cozy

Is anyone else having one of those "I just wanna snuggle up and lay around all day long" days?!?

ME!! ME!! ME!!

It a perfect snuggle weather of 55ยบ here in my little town today. I am reluctantly being a good college kid today and going to all of my classes even though I would much rather just stay right here! 

{Thank goodness for a two and a half hour break between classes so I can still come home for a bit!}

Now I just need to get this guy to take a homework break and come join me for my cuddle break!!
(I currently failing at making this happen but I will prevail! Hopefully.)

I hope you are all having a very happy Wednesday!!

Now go grab your favoritest blanket and grab your cuddle partner!
(pillows and pets are great alternatives to people)

My Wonderful, Amazing, Glourious Vaca!!

Sooo I Lied.....

Have yall been wondering where in the world i have been?!

Well I wish I could say I've been off on a glorious vacation or that I was kidnapped for a almost week long shopping spree but my disappearance was much less than happy and exciting. 

I was gone because right now I look like this

okay not exactly like that because I have a human face but the ratio of cheek size to the face size is just about right.

I had my wisdom teeth taken out!!

Before I had my surgery I had heard that either I would do great and it would be like nothing happened or it would be supper horrible and I would almost die.

Sadly I was not a lucky winner to pull the "this is nothing" card. 

One.) I don't do well on Anastasia at all. 

Two.) I have a HUGE fear of needles especially when they have anything to do with going into the crease in my arm (thats a whole another story for later... lets just say I was traumatized as a child)

Three.) All of my wisdom teeth were deeply impacted

Four.) Before the Dr. even introduced himself he walked in looked at my x-ray and said "oh man! You're definitely gonna on a two week recovery plan.
(ummm two weeks?! not what I was planning!)

So yeah all of these things combined didn't exactly add up to be the greatest moment of my life yet. And trust me I wish I was exaggerating. 

Luckily I am finally able to be a normal sain human being (I am finally off my oxicodonx...lets just say know one should have to see me while under its influence.)

Also I have been able to upgrade from a liquid diet to a soft food diet! 

which means lots of
and lots and lots of these!!

Oh and the one thing that I have found to be one of the worst things about this whole ordeal is not being able to drink out of a straw!! Yes straws, you never know how much you love straws until you cant use them anymore.

Okay Okay Ill end my complaining and pity party now!

I sure hope you all had a glorious weekend and that your week is going to be even better!!

I miss you all bunches!!

Im really hoping this birthday is the BEST birthday you have ever had!!

Tonight's Celebrations will include a simple relaxed evening (at his request) and some homemade cooking made by muah (Ok and the birthday man too)

There will also be some present opening will also be taking place tonight!
 Honestly I don't have a very good record of awesome present shopping/giving. I always end up with a wrong size or some broken electronic or little lame nick nak. BUT this birthday Im trying to change my record and go for the gold! I can't reveal Justin's gifts yet because I have one of those awesome men that reads my blog everyday! ;) So tomorrow I will reveal if the gift givin was a success!

Gettin Awkward (sung in the tune of "Gettin Paper")

It's Awkward and Awesome Thursday!!

Woot Woot!

I haven't gotten to participate in awkward and awesome thursday in what feels like forever and get excited because I have been saving up some good awkward pictures!!

As you can tell I haven't been able to chit chat much this week but Sunday I am planning on spending more than enough time cuddled up on the couch to do so!! :)

Getting to the Awkward and Awesome of today.....


1. People. Yes just people in general I cant tell you how many awkward dress, accessorized, looking people. I wish I could just walk around with a camera on my forehead just so you would all completely understand what I am talking about but luckily I do have some pretty handy sneaky picture taking skills that came in handy for these babies...

 See this guys backpack strap?! haha It was literately holding on by a thread!
 I don't know why but I thought this guy just looked so funny 
and this lovely lady... well you cant see it super well but she is wearing a weird tube-top, white biking shorts, and some super chunky healed shoes. Oh and she had BRIGHT blue eye shadow on. lol

2. It might be just a little awkward that it is like the 7th week of classes and i still occasionally have to look up my schedule.

3. People falling asleep in church

4. Being so white that when I cross my legs for a long time Ill get a big red mark on my leg from the "pressure" and then people will be all "OMG what happened to your leg?!!?"

5. Not realizing that my sandwich from Which Which had bacon that I did not ask for and the wrong kind of cheese on my second half.

6. Not posting this till eight at night... I tried to do this earlier today but there was just too much school goin on.

1. I won my first giveaway!!!!!! :) Im suuuuper excited about it and when it gets here I will tell you all about it!

2. Having some pretty darn good six week grades! 

3. Justin living in Stillwater! Let me tell ya I am LOOOOVING it!! :)

4. Making eggy toast for the first time ever!! yummmy!

5. The weekend ahead!! I cant wait for it! Gonna be pre-celebrating for Justin's birthday and going to the OSU game!

6. Getting my next project today! Ill be designing a Master Suite!

7. Thinking positive and writing the paper that I am dreading and studying for a Lifespan test that I think might kill me! (well Im almost there)

After Seven Long Months...


Today Justin is FINALLY moving to Stillwater!!!
Which means were both in the same state, city, and basically even the on the same street!

It take less that five minutes to get to each others places 
(which is soo much better than 45min when were both actually living at home)

I am soo excited I can't sit still! I have the biggest smile on my face and I am about as giddy as a girl who got her first kiss!

Justin graduated from his tech training school this past Wednesday and I cant even begin to tell you how proud I am of that manly stud!

Seven months ago we were saying goodbye as he left for basic and now we're finally beginning an "everyday" life together!

In March Justin left for basic and was there for two months. He didn't have any kind of communication whats so ever except for writing snail mail letters and an occasional 5-15 min phone call on a sunday which was always to his mom. I wrote Justin everyday and would be jumping up and down in the middle of the street when I would get a letter from him (I received a total of 10! - which is pretty good compared to most!) 

After the two months had painfully and slowly gone by Justin's parents and I went down to San Antonio to see him graduate from basic! It was one of the best trips ever! When we finally saw each other it was like we handout skipped a beat and we just had soo much to catch up on! I can't really put into words how amazing it was being together again!

This was the first time we saw each other since he had left!

Justin actually got to come home for a few weeks before he left for Missouri and let me tell ya those few weeks were like heaven and 100 pumpkin lattes mixed together kind of bliss compared to the previous months! but then He had to leave once again! This time for five months but he would be able to have his phone and he promised we would talk everyday if possible! So it was just .00000000000000001 times easier to let him go. 

It was actually just me and him at the airport the morning he left for Missouri. We didn't have to say much we just held on to each other, and given each other lots of kisses not really being sure of when we would be seeing each other next. Little did we know how lucky we would be to see each other a lot more than we imagined!! :)
(and we took a kissy picture! lol which is actually one of my favorites)
(sorry if you hate kissy pics! It goes along with the story though!!)

And now the day we have been talking about forever and ever is here!! 

Crazy Right?!

Now I can probably bet you that all of my I's will probably become We's and I hope ya'll don't mind it too much! 

Personally I am getting a little tired of the word "I" but I might be a little bias! ;)

 I hope you all are having a fabulous Monday!!

I made it!! I got it done just in time and I have to say I am pretty happy with my little project!

Here is my final board!

and some close ups of my floor plan and elevations..
(which were all hand drafted)


What do you think?!

Through this design I will be adding on to my kitchen and will eventually end up with a complete house at the end of the semester!

I have designed a house from the ground up before but I never got to take it step by step which is what I am really enjoying with this project!

Now I am finally off to the wonderful place called heaven (aka my bed) to make up for the eight + hours I missed last night!
