sunday's thwacks and shout-outs.

Thwack (verb) : to strike with, or as if with, something flat or heavy.
Shout-out (noun) : a public expression of gratitude or recognition.


1.) The husband and I went for a morning run before work on Wednesday, aaaaand we locked ourselves out of the house.  He thought he handed me the key, and I thought he had it.  Thankfully, our awesome neighbors have a key to our house, and she works at 8:00 am as well, so she was up for us to (quietly) knock on their door and grab our key from them.  Otherwise, I literally have no idea what we would have done.  Break a window?

2.) I set my alarm for pm instead of am for Friday morning.  Then I was majorly rushed when the husband finally woke me up. Haaate that.


1.) This blog right here was on weddinggawker this week.  You can go here to find me, # 13794.  By now I think I've transitioned over to page 2.  Pretty fun and exciting!

2.) Thursday at work I won $50 Starbucks monies!  Best. Win. Ever.  Totes made my day.

3.) The editor of Apple Brides, the most widely known wedding website in Eastern Washington, asked me to help her style a photo shoot in September.  We've been Twitter buddies for the last little while and she graciously wrote this awesome guest post while I was in Italy, so I'm really excited about the opportunity to finally meet her and spend some time with her.  I've been dreaming up a fall-inspired shoot for the last few days - I am so so excited to see it all come together I can't hardly stand it!

4.) The husband, pups, and I went an a fabulous 6-ish mile hike on Thursday in Liberty Lake.  It reminded us so much of Bend, Oregon that we felt right at home!  Lola and Trudy had the best time ever - they were in dog heaven.

My handsome man.

Had to show you the mud boots on Lola.  And the evil eyes.

5.) The husband and I are heading home to Oregon Labor Day weekend to take our family photos with Erich McVey, as previously mentioned a million times.  I purchased these pretty puppies for the shoot (and life in general) and I. Am. In. Lust.

7.) I have this friend that loves her dog as much as I love mine.  Well at least I think she does - she seems like she does.  I've never actually met this friend - but we're FB and blogger buddies... and she went to college with one of my best friends back home.  So we're basically BFF.  Anyhoo, back to the dog - his name is Winston.  And she always takes funny pictures of him, and buys him bow ties and things.  She posted this one on FB recently.  I die.



  1. I love Winston.

    Have fun when you head to Oregon. Those boots are to die.

  2. where did you find the boots? I love them!

  3. Hey Mandee! Boots are from DSW, Nine West. Sooo comfy and perfectly fabulous. Go get them!
