.i'm back!.

Hello everyone! I truly hope that every single one of you have had an awesome summer! The little one and I are back from our trip to Michigan. Actually, we've been back for a little while. A very short trip but a good one. The above photo is of the Mackinac Bridge, the world's longest suspension bridge. It was such a cool site to see! It was fun collecting fudge in little Mackinaw City. Yes, I'm a fudgie! Maybe next time, we'll be able to make a trip over to Mackinac Island to see the Grand Hotel. Honestly, as far as pictures were concerned, three shots of the bridge were the only photos I had taken. Aside from photos of A. with her shorts on her head. Why? The main reason for it was because I was not prepared for it to have been so cold! There was a freak cold front that moved in from Canada. It had actually gone down into the 50s and the morning we left, into the 30s. There was frost on the car as we were preparing to head back to Nashville's 80˚-90˚ weather. I ended up getting a nasty cold once we got back and I'm still trying to get over this cough that came with it. Ugh.

In other news, we did get a new puppy. Or rather, Alex got us a new puppy while we were away. A cute little mutt we named Chipper. Nothing like trying to potty train the toddler and house train the dog all at the same time. Yay!! Now. . . how have YOU been?


  1. beautiful shot - wow, that is dramatic weather for a southerner for sure. LOL I would have froze.

    same old thing around here.

  2. Hi Kat! I've never seen a bridge so massively long! anyway, glad you had a good (cold) time. Puppy sounds interesting... maybe a photo soon?! double house training.. lovely, don't envy you that one!

  3. that bridge is so beautiful Kat...welcome back and happy new puppy mom!

  4. Welcome back!

Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
