Puppy Alarm Clock + Pizza

Hi friends! How are you doing? As I write this it is absolutely pouring out. The roof is getting absolutely pounded at work. It’s crazy! As long as the rain ends before the weekend though then I won’t complain. Hopefully the sun is shining by you! Have a great day 🙂


Once again Bailey acted like our alarm clock at 5 am to wake us up. For some reason, I feel like she is suddenly freaked out by our alarms because that’s when she starts going crazy. It definitely works to get me out of bed though! After getting ready for the day, I scrambled eggs to have for breakfast. Plus a muffin, because carbs 😉


During lunch, I read more of Before We Were Yours. It’s such a good book! It’s the story of Avery who is a politicians grown daughter who is with her father at a nursing home when one of the residents, May, acts as if she knows Avery. May has a picture in her room that contains someone who looks exactly like her grandmother. When Avery visits her grandmother to inquire about May, her grandmother acts perfectly coherent despite having dementia and living in a nursing home. Avery goes on the hunt to figure out the family’s connection with May. I feel like I’m finally getting to the best part and I can’t wait to find out what happens.

Epsom Salt

After work, I changed and headed out for 5 easy recovery miles. My hips were feeling a little achy so I stretched and foam rolled before hopping into an epsom salt bath. It was much needed! I think epsom salt baths need to become a normal part of my routine. Honestly I have no idea if it actually helps but it feels good so why not keep doing it right?


We were still on the leftovers train last night which meant more pizza for dinner! I just threw it in the oven to warm it up and then enjoyed it while we watched an episode of Billions. Alex and I just finished the second season and man it is good! The season ended with certain things wrapped up enough but still a lot of questions for you. It was a good one.

Alex and I hung out a bit then decided to turn on Coco. Unfortunately I started to doze just a tiny bit so I decided to get ready for bed and read a bit more before calling it a night.

Question of the day: If you have a dog, does it act like an alarm clock for you?

  1. It’s been so cloudy and rainy here, too! This morning it’s finally sunny and clear — it definitely put more of a pep in my step!


  2. Everyone keeps talking about billions- I need to check it out! For a while Shelbie would wake me up at three am!!! Ugh!! We worked on limiting water close to bedtime so she wouldn’t have to go in the middle of the night. We also put her dog bed close to ours so she wouldn’t be needing to jump on our bed


    1. Yes watch it! So good!! Bailey used to be so good but I have no idea why she randomly thought 5 am was time to bark. And her crate is right next to our bed too! Ugh I love her but she’s been a little crazy this week.


      1. It’s raining here right now, but my friend says it’s not raining where I’m going so I’m hopeful:)


  3. Lisa Wingate is a great author! Have you ever read her book The Prayer Box? I loved that book and read it two or three times, haha. I think she made prequels and sequels to it, too!

    Bailey is getting so big and grown up looking! Such a little cutie! Mavis used to be an alarm clock for us, but when she got to be about 7 or 8 months she started to sleep in more 🙂


    1. No I haven’t!! Definitely adding it to my list now though.

      Ugh she apparently grew taller when we were gone. Why do they grow up so fast?! (Also I’ll need help when it’s a human baby if this is how I am with Bailey lol). Our fingers are crossed she grew out of the 5am wake up while at Alex’s parents house.

      I hope you had an awesome Fourth of July!!
