Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

pools, pugs, and ummmmerica.

 I hope everyone had a fantastic fourth! I spent the day lounging in my parents pool, and distributing jello shots. Standard.
I am serious about two things: Pugs, and themed parties. 
Sadie was extremely patriotic. 
 At one point we had five piggys running around the pool. It was a legit snortfest. I was afraid the poor things were going to overheat, so we cooled them off on a raft. 
Sadie was so proud of her festive attire. As you can see, her friend Twink hit the beer bong a few too many times, and had to take a break. 😉
I think it is just inconsiderate that America’s birthday was on a Wednesday this year. I mean, it is just rude. I was a good girl though, and was snuggled up in my bed at my parents by 10:30. However, 7 am still came too early this morning. Successful pool party kids.

    You have got to be the cutest person ever. Love the party and glad you had a good fourth!!

  26. Caroline says:

    Ummm. I'm confused why Kevin the dog didn't make any of the pics?
    Did you forget to invite him like certain other people who's name rhymes with daryl? boo. hiss.
    Just kidding my love! I still loves my Lou. Lucy, on the other hand, is irked the invitation wasn't extended to her. After all, she looks phenom in patriotic colors & she IS an AMERICAN short-hair. Mmmmwwwaaaa.

  27. Love your blog! The puggies are just the cutest dressed in their 4th finest 🙂

  28. Unknown says:

    Champ and Twinkie had so much fun with cousin Sadie! Surely we can come up with some more Pug themed Pool parties this summer 🙂 We need to work on that Pug:People ratio though haha.
