Life Lately in Snapshots

Hey hey! I love scrolling through my camera roll and seeing what has been going on in my life in photo form. It’s usually interesting, sometimes quite entertaining, and always random 😉

So, here’s what my life has been like lately in pictures I snapped on my phone!

Four Siberian huskies sitting on couch

We had a husky day this week! I pet sat for some friends and I don’t know who had the most fun?! It might have been Sadie. She was in her glory running around with Niva, Thor, Zeus, and Runah. I love when we have dogs over to play because Niva gets so worn out 😂

Speaking of dogs, my brother-in-law adopted a puppy! He’s naming her Petunia and calling her Tuna. I can’t deal with the cuteness! I think we’re going to be pet sitting her around Thanksgiving. So excited 😍

I told him I thought she looked like Lola and he said he hopes she’s like her and I thought I was going to cry. So sweet. She really was a wonderful dog ❤️

Mom and toddler baking

Sadie and I baked sugar cookies (at like 9 am 🤪) and had such a fun time. Also, she continues to live her best life in fancy nightgowns and dresses 24/7. She’s such a source of joy for us!

She makes me laugh constantly. Just the other day she found Jimmy’s deodorant and said “Ooo! Lip gloss!”

Guys, I got a laminator.

I feel like I have achieved a new level of homeschool mom-ness and I’m not mad about it. I tried to hold off on buying one as long as possible but I wanted to do so many little learning projects with one and finally caved. I made a worksheet to teach Sadie the seasons and all my mom dreams came true 😂

New granola flavor alert over here! Well, in my Etsy shop 😉

As I mentioned in my last post, I was developing a gingerbread granola and I finally nailed it down! It’s basically a gingerbread cookie, but in granola form. It has oats, nuts, dried cranberries, molasses, honey, and all sorts of spices. Definitely a new favorite of mine.

What would your life lately look like in pictures?

Sunday Coffee Date

Hello and welcome to another Sunday Coffee Date post! This is one of my favorite types of posts–it’s just a fun casual time to chat as though we were meeting up for a cup of coffee. So, let’s do just that 😊

If we were having coffee right now… I would ask how you’re doing and what you’ve been up to this month. I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like to lately but I’m hoping to be more present in the upcoming weeks. I had two people complain about USPS shipping delays with my Etsy shop so I decided to just offer my bread locally. It’s the most popular item in my shop, but I don’t want people to have a bad experience with it arriving late, you know? It’s a lot of pressure off of my shoulders to just be shipping the granola and other items!

If we were having coffee right now… I would tell you that I finished about 90% of my holiday shopping and most of the items I purchased for family and friends are from small businesses! Speaking of small businesses, my friend Laura just launched the cutest kids gratitude journal in her shop!
