Summer Fun

It’s my favorite time of the year….oops….did I say that at Christmas too….well, probably….but this time….I MEAN IT!

There just isn’t a better time, that I enjoy more then Summer, I can take 90 degrees any old day, over 20 degrees! 

So with that being said……….

DSC06774 I am off to enjoy a little Summer Fun! 

DSC06773 I won’t be gone long, only about 10 days.  I will check in from time to time and see what’s going on with you!  Oh yeah, I’ve been having a blast playing with that chalk ink…..I’m sure y’all have heard of it!  


Now, I know it’s been a while since I gave you an update on these two, so here they are…………

DSC06699 Hoss….remember him here.  Well, he has been in the Miracle Grow, he now weighs approx 55 pounds, and 7 1/2 months old.

DSC06707He is the sweetest thing in the world!  But, he will tare you up if he don’t know you!  I like that!  He is very protective and constantly guarding.  He can sense when someone doesn’t like him or is scared….Does he look mean?  He loves to be talked to, Baby Talk, of course….LOL ;)

DSC06702 Best buddies!

No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich.  Louis Sabin


DSC06708 Lucy~ She is Sweet as Tea! See her here.  Quite a bit small then Hoss; Lucy weighs approx 50 pounds,  (i’m not telling you what i weigh! ;)   Never meets a stranger!  Loves to be petted and loved!

To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest, the nicest human being who was ever born.  Louis Sabin

DSC06709 I am joy in a wooly coat, come to dance into your life, to make you laugh!  Julie Church

We have more fun with these two then you can even imagine!  And, they love to see me coming….they know they are going to get lots of treats! :)  OH, and I have a big surprise coming soon about these two sweeties!  You all are going to love it….It might be the middle of June before I can tell it, but it’s a good one!  and, no Lucy is NOT having puppies…we had that situation already fixed! 

Are you getting ready to Flaunt this Friday?????   I will not be here for this Fridays Flaunt, however I will have a post ready to go!  You will not link up here at Southern Lady, because………..


Stacey at Poofing the Pillows is hosting this Months Flaunt Your RED!  I am so excited about it!  Stacey was the one that put the bug in my ear to start Flaunt, so I am so thrilled she is going to host Flaunt on her blog.   Poofing the Pillows is where you will need to link up.  Stacey is one of the sweetest ladies I have met through blogging, she and I have become email buddies through this blogging thing.  We are so much alike it is weird, so I know I am leaving Flaunt Your RED in good hands!   Thank you Stacey! 

stacey's blog So get those RED Flaunt post ready for this Friday, May 29th!    You can Flaunt anything RED!  Shoes, purse, decor, cars, flowers, and even your Red headed child, as Stacey says!  :)  Just make sure you link your post back to Poofing the Pillows.  Y’all have fun, and I will check in if I can, if not I will talk to you all in a few days!


I’m off to the North Myrtle Beach area.  See you in a few days!   Blessings!

I know it's not "Red" but I'll throw it into the mix anyway...LOL! :)

Stacey said...

Hi friend! Your dogs look like they are almost full grown. Those eyes are beautiful! Are they green or blue? It's hard to tell but they seem to be see through. It's nice that you have one for each of you. :)

Have a wonderful time at the beach! I hope you have great weather, good food, and the best time!! You can flaunt your swimsuit while you are gone.

Colleen said...

Those puppies have turned into beautiful dogs! They were so lucky that you have such a loving heart and brought them home. Now you are the lucky ones.

Susie said...

Your "babies" are so cute Nancy. Hoss does look like he could "tear you up if he wanted".

Have a great time on your trip!
