I can't believe it's already November! Where has this year gone?!
We have been so busy lately, the days are flying by and although I wish they would slow down I am enjoying every second with family and friends.
I'm going to share some pictures of what we've been up to lately. This was out front porch throughout the fall and I've been loving having outdoor decorations. I can't wait to change up the front steps for Christmas and am holding myself back because I know Tim thinks I'm crazy for putting up Christmas decor in November....I'll wait at least a couple more weeks! Anyways, back to the fall decor! I loved having mums and pumpkins out but the mums have started dying and the pumpkins will rot soon enough. Every time I'm outside I look at our gardens and think of all the changes I want to make, but it will have to wait for the spring!
Brittni's family hosted their annual trunk or treat! We picked our costumes based solely on what we could dress Sophie up as. When we found the dragon costume on Amazon and then easily found Jon Snow and Daenerys costumes we had our plan! Sophie's dragon costume was a XL (for small dogs) but didn't really fit her in length, so we put it over her head and front legs and it kind of just hung off her. We learned this past weekend that she weighs almost 10 pounds more than she did at her first vet visit so it makes sense this didn't fit her!
What a cute little family I have! We also had the best time seeing everyones trunk ideas and costumes. Sophie also loved all the attention from adults and kids alike! She is also super well behaved and we loved being able to bring her along for an event like that.
Recently we spent a Sunday morning visiting our friends Graham and Angela. They have two dogs and an almost one year old son, such a busy household! We went over for a puppy playdate and Sophie absolutely loved it! She was a little apprehensive at first, but Tucker and Jake weren't too interested in her so she liked running alongside them and playing inside their fenced in yard.
I see many puppy playdates in our future!
We also celebrated Tim's birthday with a family dinner. Sophie got to meet her cousin Attie and they were a little nervous around each other but seemed to get along with each other by the end of the night!
Sophie did so good with all the dogs and people that particular weekend, I was so proud of her!
Did you expect me to post about anything other than my dog? Good news, on Monday I'm sharing a quick living room project that we did recently, but my dog is also in those pictures :)
If you are as obsessed with my dog as I am then you can check out her instagram SophieTheGoldendoodleGooding where I share pictures like the above one!
On Halloween we had trick or treaters! Neither of us lived in neighborhoods and really experienced trick or treaters coming when we were younger so it was a whole new experience for us! We had about 50 and I bought wayyyy too much candy but we had so much fun!
At work the other day these were the trees and they were just so beautiful I had to snap a picture!
We have been having a lot of outdoor time lately, just playing in the yard. Sophie digs holes and rolls around, while Tim and I plan out what we want the yard to be eventually.
This is a tree in our yard that I don't really love. It's a Siberian elm and I'm not a huge fan, but Sophie loves it and loves to hide underneath it. If that doesn't convince me to keep a tree I don't know what will.
Last Friday night we met up with Derek and Ally at Whalers Brewery and Sophie loved it! Dogs are allowed in the brewery and she ate up all the attention. There were a few other dogs there and it's always fun to talk to other dog owners because we are all obsessed with our babies!
I also got to see our friends Doreen, Mike, Jess and Kyle! They all gave Sophie a ton of attention and she was the happiest girl around.
She's the cutest thing, I'm not biased at all!
She didn't feel at home at all......This dog feels at home everywhere. She's so sweet!
On Saturday we headed up to the Raduazzo's for their Halloween party! Megan was back from California and I was so happy to see her! Tim and I couldn't stop saying what a great time we were having and we wished we could've stayed and hung out with everyone longer!
Such a fun night and how cute is their basement bar? This is what Tim wants to set up in our basement someday.
Sunday was Tim's birthday! We celebrated with a super quiet day and it was so nice to spend time at home just relaxing. I can't imagine a better gift than Sophie's kisses, right Tim?
Seriously, if you're not already convinced she's the cutest dog on the planet..... you're wrong!
