They also have some really cute handbags... Also, if you Google Search coupon codes you'll be able to find an extra deal. I found a $15 off coupon. Gotta love it!!

Back to School Blues... AGAIN!

I have a severe case of the blues.......
It's the," I have to go back to school and I hate it" blues...
This summer I truly enjoyed the quiet time... And all of my time with Lola.. It was soo awesome being away from work...
So now I've started the countdown til the last day of school, lol.. 10 months and counting......

Classes begin on Monday and I am NOT looking forward to it. I guess I just need to get back in the swing of things right? I need to get back to a routine. And i'm nsure the sooner i do the easier it'll be, for me and for Lola, lol.. Lately i've been thinking about getting a pet sitter/dog walker for 2 days a week so Lola is completely bored every day all day. I can come home for lunch but not every day and right now Brian is working local which is good cause he can come home. But some of the girls i work with use this lady that they really like and really trust, which I feel is very important. And she only costs $15.00 for the entire hour. I thought that was a very fair, resonable price. Not like the $18.00 for the half hour the lady down the street wanted! I thought that was a rip off... So we'll see.. Maybe i'll get her to walk and play with Lola once the weather cools down a little. Bulldogs don't do well in the heat at all so right now it would be a waste! And I don't want to pay someone to watch Animal Planet with her for the entire hour, lol.. I will keep you posted!

So as the summer comes to an end I look back at all the fun times we had this summer" relaxing on the beach, taking Lola for late night walks, BBQs with friends, early day Pina Coladas, and days off. I guess now I'll be looking forward to holidays off and next years summer break!

I hope everyone enjoyed their summer... It's Back to School time baby! Ughhh.....

Puppy Review & an AMAZING GIVEAWAY

Lola and I recently received some toys and lots of all natural dog food & treat samples from an AWESOME store - Luke's All Natural Pet Food!! If you haven't already checked them out please do so

The Jolly Teaser Ball is such a great toy for dogs of any age. It is the only toy that keeps Lola occupied for hours. She is determined to get the ball on the inside. And it is very durable! Lola loves to chew and this toy can withstand the constant chewing. I highly recommend the Jolly Teaser Ball.. Not only will it keep your dog entertained but it will give them lots of exercise which is great on a rainy day!!

Then there was this AWESOME toy.... Lola really, really loved the Lion Squeaky Squiggker. . What I think she really loves about it is the fact that the arms and legs and very long and that they each have a squeaker in them. She loves when I drag it along the floor so she can chase it. It is made out of a very durable nylon material that can really withstand her strong teeth. Bulldogs love to chew and this is a great toy for her. Not only is it cute but a great toy to keep her entertained for a long time.

Lola also received a Sampler Pack that had some great food and treat samples that she really loved! It was great because it gave me the opportunity to try different foods and treats to see exactly what she likes and does not like. Loloa is a treat girl, she loves her cookies and treats. She really enjoyed Zuke's Jerky Naturals in Lamb. She also loooved Flying Basset Organics Super Hero Treats - Plant Cell Supplements. Those treats were actually for both dogs and cats. Her favorite food out of the pack was the Orijen Puppy Formula kibble. It is a grain free food which is very, very important. It contains 75 % premium animal ingredients and 25% fruits, veggies, and botanicals.

Change of Job.. work from HOME?

So since I have had off all summer I'm starting to think I would like a new job.. I'm thinking that I need to find a passion, a career.... Not just a job that I get up to go to every day, something that I find a hassle! I just don't know what that is yet! I know it sounds funny but i would LOVE to work from home.. I've been looking online but most of the jobs seem to be scams. So how do people do it, how do you find a real good work from home job? AND have it be something I love. I'd really love to have a work from home job that way I could be on my own schedule!! I think it would work great for me, especially since I am a very disciplined person..
Now it's just finding the right thing... I welcome ANY and ALL advice and tips.. HELP!!
