Fur-Mom Files


Fur-moms meet the Zogoflex, from the makers of West Paw Designs.
"Zogoflex® is our exclusive material that makes fetch, tug-o-war, and chew therapy more fun—it’s easy on doggie mouths, stretches (without stretching out) and sports an unstoppable bounce—all while staying tenaciously tough."
Recyclable, handcrafted in the USA, certified safe, and best of all... GUARANTEED TO LAST!

My mom bought one for Jax and Gemma as Christmas presents, but Gemma has claimed them as her own. I cannot say enough about how great these toys are. There are many different styles to choose from. Treat your pet or gift one to a friend! Click here to find a retailer near you.

Gemma loves her Zogoflex Hurley Dog Bones!

++opinions are my own & I was not compensated in any way for this post, though Gemma & Jax will gladly take any free toys or treats one should have to offer

Oh Schnitzel

This weekend the Hubs and I set out on exploring our new town. We ventured to Downtown Chattanooga to check out the highly reviewed German gastro pub, Brewhaus. This was my first ever German food experience.

I learned that I hate bratwursts, but I love schnitzels, spaetzel and of course the bier.

The view was also wonderful! We got to see part of the sunset over the mountains and the river walk bridge. Afterward, we decided to do a little more exploring. We found an adorable doggie boutique, a delicious donut shop, and we stopped in to have a brew at Chattanooga Brewing Co

It's easy to say we are quickly falling in love with this town.

Have you ever tried German food? What's your favorite?

Monday Blessings

A huge blessing for our lil family! I spent months of job searching, applying, being let down over and over again. It's just a disheartening and tiring process. Tuesday my SIL revamped my resume {she's freaking amazing!}. I continued to send out my resume and just like that I got 3-4 emails back to set up interviews. The first one asked me to come in person to apply. So Thursday morning I applied and they interviewed me right on the spot {I haven't been interviewed in forever and to my surprise I was so confident and knew what I could do and what I had to offer}. I thought it went well but I didn't get my hopes up because not many places want to take in someone in the medical field who has no experience yet. I've been praying that someone would give me the chance. After the interview I talked to a couple of the other offers and set up interviews with them. Well wouldn't ya know! Later that evening I got a phone call with a job offer! I knew it was meant to be. I started the very next day. It is seriously a blessing! I am a Chiropractic Assistant. I have so much to learn and many opportunities to grow with this job, but I am thrilled and blessed.


 Our 'family' car! But we won't be starting a family any time soon. An upgraded was needed though and we got a great deal on it. I love love love love it!

Happy Monday Everyone!
