the day my sponsors bought me a dog

Meet Finley the yellow lab.
I have been begging husband to get me another dog since the day we brought Sherman home as a six week old ball of fluff. And guess what ... he keeps saying no way. I think it has something to do with the leather couch incident. But I knew you guys would come through for me.

If you follow me on facebook, you know that I recently made my first donation to the petco foundation. And if that wasn't fun enough ... that crazy petco foundation sent me Finley here as a free gift for donating. Sherman is head over heels in love. And so am I.

So, can I please just say Thank You to all of you from the bottom of my animal lovin' heart. You guys are awesome.
And speaking of awesome people ...
I'm excited to be featured here on the UBER lovely Tiffany's blog!
I've stalked her for some time now, so to say I'm a wee bit starstruck is an understatement.

I'm Kristine! 
You can call me... Kristine, K, Hot Stuff, or even Chin or Chin Chin #childhoodnickname #allacceptable But please don't call me Double Chin #NOTacceptable

I'm Wifey to Nate, Momma to our M&M girls, and owner of The Foley Fam {unedited} blog and J&M' s Eye Candy Shoppe on Etsy.

On my blog you'll find me {over}sharing and documenting my attempts at being a fun mom and wifey, being "fashionable", and being Suzy Homemaker, ya know throwing in some sweets and some craftoons in the mix. As you can see I enjoy making up words too #itsagift

Pretty much whatever is happening in my brain our life, I'm blogging about it! I am also obsessed with using hashtags #hopeitsaphase #canthelpmyself #hashtagqueen If you want to know some of my deep dark secrets randoms about me, I shared some goods over here.
 
Now that you're back didn't I warn you? #hashtagoverload
I can be a wee bit sarcastic, but try not to take offense mmmkay? #donttakeitpersonal
When I'm not offending people blogging, I'm making pretties for my Etsy store
My love of pretty things has really blossomed since having M&M. #littlegirlsdothattoyou I specialize in custom orders, and I find such joy in creating pieces for my girls and others.

I believe if you're not loving and laughing, you're not living baby! If you even somewhat agree to that motto then come on over to our place and introduce yourself! I'm all for making new friends! Can't wait to have you party it up with us!

Speaking of Parties....
I LOVE hosting them! Check out some I've thrown (with LOTS of help from my fam bam) from the past year here and here.
What's a party without some giveaway swag?
A lame one (wink wink) #justkeepingitreal

So up for grabs is a Surprise Filled Bag of Eye Candy from yours truly valued at $20 and ... a $20 Target Gift Card for you to go shopping with!
#canIgetawootwoot

Hope to see your pretty little buns faces over at our place sooner than later!
Thanks again Tiff for having me! You are the bees knees my dear!

  29. Thanks for that wonderful blog you linked me to! My husband won't even let me get ONE dog. I'm going to talk him into it though. You just watch me! Also...I never heard about your rude comment! That's so unfortunate. What happened? I'm always hearing of it. And it is so annoying. Why do people have to be so rude?

  30. You are funny. And your friends are funny. I have no pets, real or stuffed. I am dying for at least a fish. Something I can say "beep beep beep" to in a high voice as I walk passed it. Is that too much to ask for???

    ReplyDelete
  31. You know.

    There is something to be said about you donating, there is something to be said about why you have the number of followers that you do.

    And that something that needs to be said is this, you Tiff.. you are exceptional.

    and yep. redo.

  32. I am in love with the fact that you donated your sponsor earnings. That is the coolest thing I've heard in a while. You inspire me.

  33. I'm having the same problem with my husband about getting another dog. I want a Golden so bad and I want to adopt one so we would probably not even be able to get a puppy but still...he says no. :( I plan to keep working on him though.
