Happy Thanksgiving 2014

Today we give thanks... the folks we love and the friends who speak to our hearts. the health we have and the glorious food we will eat.

But most of all, I give thanks to those two boys above <3
These kids have shown me what it is like to be loved unconditionally and most of all,
what it is like to be saved by beautiful souls like theirs.
How lucky I am to have experienced this twice!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones..
From the Reed boys & the rest of the Reed pack!
<3 <3

P.S. We tried getting pictures of the rest of the pack
but the boys seemed to be more interested in the treats than the girls were. Haha!
Two outtakes below :)

Wednesday Words

Three Instagrams you should be following. Not because they have a lot of followers (which they do) or post delicious pictures of food (occasionally they do) but because the words they give us are magical. They can bring you clarity, relief and smiles galore. They motivate you to do better and to be a better version of you everyday.

Weekend Snapshots

Moon Driver at the Front Porch Pub. It's so, so refreshing!

It rained cats and dogs Saturday night, or so I'm told. I'm a heavy sleeper and apparently I slept right through it haha! After the hardcore storms, Houston always has beautiful days. That's what Sunday was, a glorious day! The Texans didn't win and honestly, I rather not talk about it :(

E and I got more work done at the casa. Our casa is starting to look like folks actually live in it haha! We really need more storage furniture. I have no where to set up shot glasses up or my M&M goodies.

The Remi Project strikes again

About two months ago, a mama dog had six puppies. Once the kids were ready to explore the world, they figured out a way to get out of the fence you see above. They lived in a house down the street from my work so we got to hang out with them almost daily. It broke our heart to see them roam the busy street we're on. Thankfully, I work with people who are dog lovers so we made sure to keep an eye on them, feed them and give them water. No dog or animal will be left with out water and food while I'm around. Being the huge dog lover that I am, it became a major goal for me to get these kids a good home. I shared the picture you see above on multiple social networks and asked my friends to do the same.

I can now tell you that all of them have been adopted by lovely people who are genuinely interested in their well-being. The white and brown little boy is the only one left but from what I understand, the owner wants to keep him. My next goal is to get him fixed before he gets old enough to get his mama preggos.

Yesterday the last little pup (above) was adopted by a coworker who was ecstatic to take her home to his daughter. They named her Manchita, which is similar to Spot in Spanish. His little girl was so excited, she cried for twenty minutes straight. Manchita is the only 4-legged kid at this home and has her very own human sibling.. I'm sure you can imagine my happiness!

Thanks to all that shared and left positive comments to get these kids adopted. Saving dogs is truly an amazing feeling that I will never get tired of! If you see an animal that needs a home, please help them. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. We need to help educate folks on how to raise a dog and how to treat them as a family member, not just some random animal. We are their voice and if we turn our backs on them, who will defend them?!

If you can't help an animal by adopting, look into donating your time at a shelter or rescue or even a couple of bucks. Those couple of bucks might not mean much to you but I guarantee you it'll go a long way.

Weekend Snapshots

We've been at our new home for a little over a week now and it's glorious! The happiness this home brings our family is amazing! We are having fun organizing the new place and trying to figure out what colors we want on which walls. Our living room is currently a light yellow and it doesn't look too bad but it's just too much yellow for our taste.

The Texans won on Sunday! YES!! We finally let Mallet work some magic as our starting QB and boy did he come through for us. Sunday is also No Pants Sunday at our home. It basically means we don't dress up to go anywhere because it's fantastical staying at home all day. We only leave the casa if the Texans are playing which means we hit up Los Faroles again for the tastyass margaritas and we tried the enchiladas verdes!! Make ya wanna slap your mama!!
