From December 30th 2014-January 2nd 2015 I got the opportunity to finally take four days off of work. So of course, I put my feet up, drank coffee, and had a movie marathon. NOT. hahah! I have been wanting to travel for a while and go see a good friend in Ohio named Sam.
Traveling up there I got to go through several different states. Starting in SC I drove through NC, TN, KY, and OH. It was so much fun!!! I loved TN and all the mountains that were surrounding me. For the FIRST time I:
-Drove through a mountain tunnel (and experienced my radio shutting off in it…creepy!)
– Pulled over to the side of major high ways to take pictures
-took a selfie of me and my dog (Daisy) in front of the mountains in KY
-I turned 27! And was told I am getting old (Thanks Flor lol)
I wanted to share some of the photographs I took along the way with you!!! ❤
Daisy and I wearing matching hoodies (completely un planned!!)
Sam and My cup from Spencers in OH!
I turned 27!
Sam took me to a park and just let me take pictures!!!
That is all for now! I have a lot more to edit ! ❤ Hope everyone had a save New Years and that 2015 is amazing. Oh and my facebook status on Dec 31, 2014 for my New Years resolution was:
December 31, 2014 at 11:13pm
My new years resolution is to: Love myself a great deal more. Every year I make resolutions to make myself “better.” This year, I am reversing that. My goal is to not only feel but absolutely know that I am enough. And to believe with all my that one day someone will agree with that.
Melody wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and to all, a good night ❤
Daisy is like Swiper the sneaky fox from Blues Clues! She decided to open one of her presents a day early on Christmas Eve. She was so adorable doing it that i just let her have at it. I tried to assist her but she did not want help unwrapping her gift haha! She almost even ate the pack of coupons that came with it!!
Just to show my dog is made of nails, on Christmas Eve night she sneaked one of my chocolate santas that was on the bed (my bed), unwrapped it from its wrapper without making a sound, and devoured the santa. I just about lost it. It was a larger piece of milk chocolate so I grabbed my roommate. Her, her gf, me, and Daisy spent the next thirty mins in the bathroom trying to get her to throw it up. We used peroxide which is what they use in the ER to get dogs to throw up. This of course did NOTHING other than make daisy burp like crazy. Despite the panic, she turned out to be just fine. Maria, my roommates gf, stated that Daisy reined from Mexicans (she is Mexican herself) and that they are tough so she would survive!! hahaha! Then she confirmed she was Mexican by stating, “remember, they are on the Taco Bell Commercials~!.” hahahah
I got up at 5:15 AM this morning and left work around 7 PM. This was a long day at the Kennels. I am convinced only Kennel Techs and gas station associates work on Christmas!! Tonight, if you wanted to eat out, your ONLY option was the Waffle House in a not so safe area. :p
I hope everyone had a really nice, safe, and happy holiday!
I’m unsure why everyone doesn’t get married in October!! This weather is AMAZING here in Charleston, SC. I decided I could not go to the lake downtown today without my “little.” It’s wonderfully comforting how dogs are there for us every day. I have not been there for Daisy as much as I would have liked to lately. So today, I gave her a great day. We went to the lake together:
And she enjoyed the view:
I took a few random pictures. One that I really loved is below. It reminds me that where there is light, there is hope.
After the lake we went to Petsmart. She got to come inside 🙂 I picked her out some little treats and one of those toys that is filled with crinkle type paper as opposed to stuffing (my dog will rip that shit out in two seconds). Here is an example of puppy pad explosion:
She didn’t look at all interested in Petsmart but when we got in the car, she dove head first into her bag:
Daisy did 5 lapse around the lake today, which is a lot for a seven pound chihuahua! She was proud and wanted to announce her accomplishment. She is now passed out in her very over stuffed dog bed at home ❤ Love my dog.
Ok, so you know those commercials of pound puppies on tv that make you want to cry. The ones where the dogs face is SO sad that you feel the need to rush out and adopt the entire shelter?
Well, apparently, Daisy has been watching these commercials and has used them strategically.
She now puts on a “I need a home, I need food, I need love…” face while we eat our dinner. She has found that it’s most affective when she has her nose pushed as far through the bars as she can get it and both paws are pressed against the door.
I had to show a couple pics because it is THAT hilarious
*NOTICE* her food and water bowl on BOTH sides of her.
Give it up Daisy, no one is buying
