Nothing quite like some cozy pajamas, some fun and festive socks and two adorable and loving fur babies to get you in the holiday spirit! This weekend has been a cold one, but one of the few and unfortunate “perks” to being a blogger is that rain, snow, sleet or shine – the show must go on! I’m not much of a winter person, as I get cold during the summer, so imagine how cold I stay during the cooler months?! That said, I did my best to avoid the outdoors (as beautiful as they were), and opted for a warmer backdrop for these photos.

Now, you can’t break out the camera in our house without exciting Ronaldo (he’s the cute little white dog). I kid you not – the second he hears the little noise of turning on the camera, he jumps up from wherever he is, runs to you, sits and tilts his head, as if to smile. And he stays that way until you put the camera away! Getting some individual shots in our house is simply NOT an option!

Wrigley on the other hand (she's the bigger blonde dog) is a little different…she likes to take pictures, but she also likes to play more so than pose, so she only sits still for a few seconds and then it’s on like royal rumble! But with all her puppy cuteness, how can you not just love her and soak up every puppy snuggle she offers though?!!

If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas present, I highly recommend a dog :) Sure they’re hard work, they’re expensive and they require a lot of patience and responsibility, but they are so worth it. When either of my dogs just snuggle up to me because they love me so much, it warms my heart!! It's the perfect present knowing that somehow Joe and I have trained and raised two happy, loving dogs with their own personalities and so many puppy kisses and hugs to offer the world.

But since I know dogs aren’t for everyone, below is a list of some other really great Christmas gifts for her or for him! Most stores (well, practically all stores) are offering expedited shipping and guaranteed delivery before Christmas, so if you are still trying to find a few last minute gifts - no worries!

For Her


For Him


Merry almost Christmas!!
