Canidae Grain-Free Pure Heaven Bison & Butternut Squash Crunchy Dog Treats: Review!

Wednesday, January 30, 2019
Bill and I are here to review the Canidae Grain-Free Pure Heaven Crunchy Dog Treats! We selected the bison and butternut squash flavor. These treats come in different flavors as well. Each bag contains 30 biscuits. 

Since these are from the grain-free pure line, they are great for dogs with sensitivities. There's no gluten, grains, antibiotics, hormones, corn, wheat, or soy. These treats are made with bison and butternut squash. They also have cumin, sesame oil, and ginger, giving just the perfect amount of flavor. And since these treats are crunchy, they're perfect for keeping your dogs teeth clean. 

Overall, Bill really loves these treats! His ears perk up when he hears the bag, and he's instantly "dancing" on his back legs for a treat! He gives them 5 paws up! 

*The Canidae Grain-Free Pure Heaven Bison & Butternut Squash Crunchy Dog Treats were sent to us (Bill and I) for review from Chewy. All opinions are our own!

My 2019 Goals!

Monday, January 14, 2019

I still can't believe that it's 2019! I feel like I've been saying that a lot, but it's true! I have such a good feeling about this year, and I'm so excited! I thought today I'd share with you guys some of my goals for 2019. 

-Travel More

The last couple of years I've been able to do quite a bit of traveling, and I have loved it! This year I'd really like to travel more. No idea where I want to go yet, but definitely want to go somewhere. And for sure post about where I go here on the blog and Instagram! 

-Workout More

I really want to workout more this year. And I've actually already been doing really good at being consistent with my workouts! I just need to really focus on getting back on track this year. I don't necessarily want to lose weight, but I would like to tone up a bit. 

-Work Harder On YouTube & My Blog

I really want to work harder on my YouTube channel and my blog. I've always loved making videos and writing blog posts, but for some reason last year I lost my motivation. And I felt awful about that, because I'm so blessed to be able to call this my job. This year, I really want to start posting more. I really want to get back into YouTube, but I'm not sure how that's going to go. I posted about this a little bit ago, but my headphones broke off into my computer, so I currently can't use any headphones or my speaker on my laptop. Very frustrating! So until that problem gets solved, can't really edit any videos. 

-Design More

I really want to design some new items for my Zazzle shop this year. I want to work on some new collections and different things like that. I would also like to get on a set schedule for my shop, like have a schedule for when I release new items. 

-Read More

Last year I really slacked on reading! I used to read all the time. Like literally, all the time. This year, I'd really like to read more. Not sure if I want to set a certain number of books to read each month, or just read when I want. Probably just read as I want. 

Those are just a few of my goals for this year! What are some of your goals for 2019? Share in the comments! I'd love to read them!

My 2018 Recap!

Tuesday, January 08, 2019
Today I'm doing a recap of my 2018! I probably should've posted this sooner, but that's okay! I can't believe that it is already 2019. Is it just me or are the years getting shorter and shorter?! 2018 was quite the year and I'm so excited to talk about it with you guys! 

January was a pretty quiet month around here! The month started off with it being cold and snowy. I also spent a lot time working on my goals for the year in January. We also were in the progress of putting the countertops in our pop-up camper! 

February was also a pretty quiet month. But Valentine's Day is in February! The flowers in this picture were actually given to J and I at a church thing that they had on Valentine's Day. It was such a fun night! J and I ended up winning one of the games they had, we got a gift card to Olive Garden!! 

Lilac just had to make the pictures for March haha! The middle picture is a selfie taken the day that I got to meet Leona Williams and Teea Goans! That was such a fun time! And then the last picture is a picture of Bill, because it was National Dog Day. He's such a good dog and he loves to go for walks! 

I had to put a picture of my favorite tree. It's a weeping cherry, and the blooms are just so pretty! And it only blooms in the spring. April was a really stressful month. J played a weekend festival, and we ended up camping at one of the lakes. Which was fun, and the lake was beautiful! What wasn't so fun was when the fuel pump on the SUV decided to give out on us. Literally all of our gas just emptied out onto the ground! We did get it fixed and everything is good now, but wow that was stressful! 


May was such an awesome month! We started out the month going camping with a friend of ours. And had a jam at the park there at the campground. The campground had a trail that you could walk around the entire lake. It was so pretty! It was a much needed relaxing time! On our way home from that trip, we stopped at another campground. That's where the second pic is from. Then Bella turned 1! Which doesn't seem possible. The month ended with my 22nd birthday. J ended up throwing me a surprise birthday party, which was super fun!

June started out with us going to see John Michael Montgomery in concert. For some reason I can't find any of the pictures I took at the concert. June was also a month filled with kittens! As you can tell from the pictures haha 😂

This was a pretty busy month! Started out with us spending a week in Texas, which was super fun! J was in a music contest and he won! And then we went and hung out with friends for a festival. They have a carnival there and fireworks at the end of the night. I actually got on the ride in the picture! And it was super fun! 

August was a pretty quiet month. The end of the month got a little busier when we went to a music festival, that lasts a week. It was super fun! I also made friends with a llama at the music festival. 😂

Mostly a month of cat pictures haha. Bubs just looked super cute posing for the camera! And Cali looked cute too! I also dyed my hair in September. It got a little darker than I had planned on...But I still liked how it looked! 

October was such an exciting month! J proposed!! 💖  I was so surprised when he did it! I had no idea that he was planning on it. He proposed at a music festival with a song that he wrote. It was such a cute moment! And I still just can't stop staring at my ring!! 

November was a very snowy month. Not a lot of traveling happened in November, especially since we spent most of it snowed in! We did make it out to celebrate Thanksgiving with our families, and that was really nice. 💗

We put up our little Christmas tree, which turned out super cute! Morris came into our lives. It was a busy month with a bunch of Christmas concerts. And the month ended on a really sad note. We had to say goodbye to our sweet Kayla. She would've been 16 this spring, so she lived a really long life. 

That was my 2018! I can't wait to see what's in store for 2019!

Coffee Chat: Volume 41

Friday, January 04, 2019

1. Happy 2019! I can't believe that it's already 2019! I already went and bought a new planner for the year. It's from Target and it's the Day Designer brand. It's a super cute pink and gold planner that really fits my planner style. It allows me to keep a daily schedule, which is super handy since I work from home. I'm working on so many awesome things for this year, and I'm super excited!! 

2. J and I had to say goodbye to our sweet Kayla kitty. 💔 She was his cat. She would've been 16 this spring, which is a really long time for a cat to live. I always called her a grumpy old woman haha! It hasn't been easy adjusting to her not being here. She had a kitten that we named Binx, and she looks just like Kayla. So that helps a little bit having her kittens still here. 

3. So my headphones broke off into my computer. Like the part that plugs into the computer is stuck in the computer. I've tried everything to get it out! And I keep googling for more ideas on how to possibly get it out of my computer! So I thought I would post about it here on the blog, hoping that you guys would have some tips to try? Because this is really starting to get frustrating!! 😡

4. I started working out again this week! I'm just doing the usual, my Blogilates videos. Something that I can do at home and doesn't cost money! And since I live in a super small town, it just doesn't make financial sense to drive to pay for a gym. You know? 

5. I've been so behind on watching everyones Vlogmas videos! Finally getting caught up today as I type this haha 😂 I seriously love watching vlogs. I used to attempt vlogging, but I don't think I could do it anymore. I just get so nervous on camera now! It's weird haha. 

Hope you guys are having a great Friday!
