Around the Internet

Hi guys! How was your weekend? I hope it was splendid. Mine was fun and busy. I’ve been pet sitting since Friday, and Jimmy and I hosted a young adult church get together at our house on Saturday night. We had a blast playing games, eating, and encouraging each other in our faith. I love nights like that. Here’s two pictures before I get into today’s post…


Gunner, the cutie I’ve been hanging out with all weekend. He reminds me of Maggie, a bulldog I watched last year!

Cupcakes! I don’t think I can write a blog post without mentioning baking, haha. I made these cupcakes (along with bread and soup) for the get together Jimmy and I hosted on Saturday. The orange sprinkles made them feel extra fall-ish 🙂

  1. Oh my goodness, if I saw a giant spider / dog like that, I’d probably faint on the spot! LOL!! Too funny! 🙂
    And Gunner is SO cute!! 🙂
    Thank you for the links! I’m going to be lazy tonight and enjoy reading some of them!

  2. The Carolina dog is adorable!
    Funny you mention Nugo and their home base in Pittsburgh. I am a huge fan of Quest Bars, and happened to stumble upon their headquarters in El Segundo the other day.

  3. I work at a place that is known for great college eats! We are always featured in any post about Ithaca because we’re so popular! Last weekend was Alumni weekend and every Cornell grad had to come back to CTB because they remember eating there everyday when doing undergrad. It’s really fun to hear their stories!

  4. I want a Catahoula Leopard Dog too! So cute! Some friends of ours have a goldendoodle and we’ve dog sat for him a couple of times. 🙂 He’s a sweetie!
