My smart mouth always gets me in trouble. If it’s not my mouth, it’s my facial expressions...

I love watching her cheer. Sometimes she’s super intense and other times pretty silly. I’m so glad she’s found something she enjoys. 📣 @clevelandrams @chassecheer @omnicheer @relevedance @popwarnerlittlescholars @simplyblissstudio

Maybe got a little triggered after leaving the dermatologist today. But I was damn proud of these drawn on eyebrows... (((it’s still a work in progress ) ) ). I’ll just try to hide my disapproval of everything else behind this filter. ››› #triggered #dermatologist #katvondbrowpomade #andmascara #hidingbehindthisfilter #adultacne #selfiemood #hiiiii #stillunderarock #andilikeit

Hiiiiiiiiii!!! Peeking out from my social media hiatus like... 🙃. All of my services have gone half dark. Trying to “keep up with the Joneses” or whatever keeps me anxious/stresses me out. I peep on fb/IG from time to time, but I’m on/off... if you need to get in touch, call/text/biz email. ✌️💋 ››› #hiiiii #socialmediahiatus #unplug #selfcare #brb #callmemaybe #illbeback #gimmeabreak #imstillhere #stillbusy #stillworking

I’ve been shopping from The Grove Collaborative for the last few months now, and I’m in love! These products are 1️⃣ super hard to find where I live. I’m in a rural area and I’d have to go “into” town and drive 30+ minutes to try to come close to finding any of these brands and pray they’re in stock. 2️⃣ the Grove Collaborative products are their “brand” and exclusive to them. So, for the simple fact that they make it easy, all in one place, and ships fast - makes them 💯 in my book!!! ››› I signed up for a 5-piece Mrs. Meyers kit and tried “The Grove” before I made the commitment to a VIP membership ($19.99/year ). You can join ( #linkinbio ) and not do the VIP membership but, I knew I would get more value out of it as you get unlimited free shipping (orders $15 and more to be sustainable ) and free full sized gifts (as well as early access to products ). Actually, within my first few orders I received the free gifts more than paid for my annual membership. I can also set my ship date, skip a shipment, and set a favorites list! ((I don’t think I have ordered in over a month ) ) I also love that they pack the items with care and I’ve never received a damaged item! ››› Try them out with a free 5-piece Mrs. Myers kit and VIP trial. There is a link in my bio!! Oh, and the customer service is top notch! I had a mistake in one of my orders, I sent and email and it was fixed in a snap. So, if you do decide to cancel, one of their fab customer service reps will take care of you! You’ll also get a text friendly number when you sign up (as well as alerts )! I’m telling you, you’ll love it.

So, I’ve waited days and days to give a Pebbles update. So, we visited 3 veterinary offices in 3 days... and by day three, the official prognosis is that she did ingest something that does not belong in her belly. But, the xrays are basically inconclusive and we’ve drawn the conclusion that she’s ingested some sort of “sandy” material. None of us wanted to do surgery. The endoscope would likely not be able to see or potentially “grab” whatever it is, so we are continuing to allow whatever it is to pass as long as she continues to eat, drink, and pee/poo with out major vomiting. So far, she’s only done this “spit up thing” a few times after she’s eaten. But we think it’s working on passing. She gets a recheck at the next Vet appointment. However, yesterday... Bella was a jerk and bit her on the head and went BACK to the vet anyway to get checked out. No worries, Bella is a geriatric lab mix that is utterly grumpy and got in a lot of trouble for getting the baby. We’ve been sure to spend extra time with Bella, but we think someone is a little jealous over the pup. Pebbles is fine and had her two little cuts tended to and got checked out just in case. She’s on antibiotic, since Trixi won’t stop licking her head. Ugh. Thank you to everyone that has checked up on us last week. It was a really rough few days... • #atthevet #vet #veterinarian #checkup #statusupdate #puppysnuggles #kisses #puppylove #itwasalongweek

We were walking in Memphis... with our feet 10 feet off of Beale... 🚋 So, we walked, then rode the trolly, and @limebike scooters. We also visited the @peabodymemphis , @belzmuseum , @bluefinmemphis , and @mudislandriverpark to photograph the Memphis bridge at sunset (see @simplyblissstudio for the sneak peek ). 🛴 #memphis #bealestreet #exploring #downtownmemphis #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #gooutside #explorers #ilovememphis #backtomyroots

I love witty shop signs. ❤️ I’d love to do something witty for the studio, but I don’t know what I can do that’s both witty and photography related. Everything I’ve found is usually food, drink (see here ), or kid related (i.e.- unattended kids will be given a free puppy/kitten/chocolate... )... maybe I’ll just sit out random signs on 3rd street and photograph their faces... 😂 • #iknowimweird #shopkeeper #wittyquotes #wittysigns #funnysigns #anyoneelse ?

My little is sick with bronchitis and a sinus infection... but cookie sales start tomorrow. This year she’s set her goal at 500 boxes! I told her that, that was a massive goal and it would take a lot of hard work to sell that many boxes and not to give up. If you don’t have a special Girl Scout you purchase from, would you consider buying from Maci? 🍪 Boxes are $4 a box. Sales start TOMORROW! We will receive a small starter order tomorrow. However, orders can be taken both in-person and online, as well as direct ship for our not so local friends and fam! Credit cards are also accepted this year! Maci’s GS website is: http://bit.ly/cookiedealer. Well, there wasn’t many short links to choose from... 😂🤷‍♀️ 🍪 Annnd, if you buy 5 boxes you can be entered into a raffle to win 60 boxes of your fav GS cookies! There will be 6 winners! Ask Maci how! 🥛🍪🥛 #girlscoutcookies #girlscouts #daisy #daisytroop #supportyourlocalgirl #northcarolina #minime #letthembelittle #childhood #girl #mmm #support #little #cookiesfortroops #cookiedealer #girlscan #setgoals #moneymanagement #lovecookies #iamagirlscout #cookieseason #cookiemonster #smartcookie #operationcookiedrop #treatsfortroops

My little has been sick with a yo-yo fever, but she wanted to let everyone know that #cookieseason is coming this weekend! She’s set a huge goal this year to sell 500 boxes. I told her that that was a huge goal and that she was going to have to work extra hard and not give up. 🍪 If you’d like to get cookies, let us know! We can not take orders until Saturday (we can get in trouble ). We will get a starter order in this weekend and will take orders starting Saturday. Also, starting this year, credit card orders are accepted! Whooohooo! 🍪 If you’d like to get an e-card from her, (she’d like to get a patch for that ), send us your email and get a cute e-card! 🍪 Costs $4 a box and don’t forget to treat our troops! Orders can be taken online and shipped to you. I will post her link once the sale starts. 🥛🍪🥛 #girlscoutcookies #girlscouts #daisy #daisytroop #supportyourlocalgirl #northcarolina #minime #letthembelittle #childhood #girl #mmm #support #little #cookiesfortroops #cookiedealer #girlscan #setgoals #moneymanagement #lovecookies #iamagirlscout
