This & That

I feel like I haven't posted in YEARS! Okay, so it's only been a little bit of time, but still. I have a lot of things to post, but I've been busy and a little lazy at the same time, so it'll come sooner than later :)


*Some good friends invited us to Myrtle Beach in June, so we ended up going, we LOVED it :) It was so nice to relax and not have to worry about anything.

*I'm so excited to tell you that my photography business is doing GREAT! I feel like I will be busy for a while. I have cut back editing photos on the weekend though to spend more time with Trav since we don't have that much time together. AND.. I downloaded the trial of Lightroom 5. At first I hated it because it takes so darn long on trying to figure out how to even work it, but then, my pictures looks so much better than if I were to edit them with the other editor {so I'm pretty sure that I am going to get it since I have been saving up}. Hence:
{You can see more photos at Lilley Pad Photography}

*After vacation, I did a photoshoot of the one posted above. Well, behold, I got poison ivy. That was uh, fun, I guess you could say. And because I was scared that it was spread from sweat, I took a little break from running. I finally got into it back today and I am trying to run three miles most of the time. It feels good to run again. {P.S. never in my wildest imagination did I ever think I would say that}. Oh, and Trav let me get some new running clothes. I think he felt bad that I was always complaining about how hot it was.

*I signed up for my first 5k race. I am so excited because I have always wanted to do the color run because if you look at the pictures, it looks like so much fun. I am actually going to be walking it though. Say what?! That is because I am doing it with my best friend and she would have just had a baby. My first running 5k I am planning on doing with Trav.
*We have been able to cross some of the things we wanted to do off our summer bucket list
*Trav is now a SENIOR!!!! I'm doing a happy dance as I write this (in my head of course because you can't dance and type at the same time). LOL.
*Although Trav made it to join the Army Reserve, it is full of CRNA's. They told us that he would be able to get in Oct, than they called and said that it would now be November. So we're just waiting.

{Fur} Babies:

*Travis killed a HUGE spider the other day in our house after we got back from vacation. We think it was in the house for a while because Jax hissed at something prior to us going on vacation by our laundry room. Jax never hisses and because we couldn't move the washer and dryer, we didn't see anything. Then one day we saw Payson looking at something in the middle of the night. We turned on the light, and there it was. You guys, I'm not joking, it was MASSIVE and it had such a thick body. It probably didn't help that I screamed and ran away after seeing it. But afterwards, Jax has been so content {I think he missed us while we were gone, and he especially likes loving up on daddy}
Gracie is still hiding from the whole spider incident.
*I caught Tatum checking himself in the mirror {he does that time to time because he knows he is hot stuff}, and as soon as I pulled my camera, I found Gracie checking out herself as well. Trig is just in the background, doing his own thing. LOL. Good thing Tatum can't take selfies - we'd be in trouble. Ha.

*The dogs are just so darn cute! Gracie LOVES her brothers.



*We've been watching our friend's dog, Callie.

*Callie and Trig decided that since the front door opened because Trav came home that it was apparently OKAY to run out the door and have Dad and friend, Andy, chase them all around the neighborhoods.
*Well poor Trig came back with his foot bleeding and some of his padding on his other feet pretty banged up, where he is now wearing booties. It first started out like this:

Tatum feels so bad for little Trig.

Poor Trig. He now has booties that we had in our stash of dog clothes {who said that dog clothes don't come in handy?} Hopefully though, that will teach him a lesson.


  1. Such adorable puppy pictures.
    I'm glad your business is going well. :)
    I like Myrtle Beach. It has an unfair reputation for being trashy, but I think there will be bad areas in any large city. I like going to all of the beach stores, even if most appear to have the same stuff.

  2. I have always wanted to go to Myrtle Beach but its a little out of the way for me. We are headed to Orange Beach in a handful of weeks which I'm super excited about! I need some beach time. Color runs are so fun! And the perfect race in which to walk so you can just have FUN with it. You are so fast, even just run/walking you will do well :)


Thanks for being so lovely! :)
