Happy June 1st! I swear the months are just flying by, I can't believe that I'm already sweating out my body weight in shorts and celebrating Memorial Day. How was ya'll's weekend? Ours was full of bike rides, exploring little towns, and playing games with friends in celebration of the holiday. On Monday, Sam and I were both off work so, we decided to take Oliver to this big field across the bridge in the city to play. Oliver is still getting adjusted to the heat and it doesn't take very long to wear him out but, it was nice to relax in the sun for a bit while devouring our first, much-needed cup of coffee together.
This shirt was one of my "Mother's Day" presents from Sam. Yes - that sounds a bit silly saying out loud but, he has surprised me with a gift each year since we got Oliver and it's always something cute and fun like this "Stay at Home Dog Mom" t-shirt.
It ended up being quite humid on Monday so, I opted for all white rather than my usual black, weekend uniform to help with the heat. I paired my favorite animal print sandals (so comfy) with casual, white jeans, this graphic tee, and threw my hair up Ariana Grande-style to get it out of my face.
In case you've yet to notice, Oliver is not big on pictures. He'd rather run circles around me frantically, slobber on my pants, and trip me in public places. You remember when I mentioned that my neck was all sorts out of wack the other week? I could barely drive down the road without getting a friendly, "Good morning" finger in my face. After carefully tracing back through my steps, I finally realized what had caused that horrible, week-long whiplash: it was Oliver. We were on one of our daily walks through the neighborhood and Bulbazor, an exceptionally friendly pit bull down the street (easily doubles Oliver in size), was strolling by minding his own business and Oliver janked so hard toward him, my legs practically gave out from under me and my neck snapped in a way that no human should ever have to witness. I actually feel sorry looking back now that my neighbors had to see such a tragic mishap on their romantic, evening stroll. .
That being said, being a dog mom to this lunatic is my happiness every day and I wouldn't change it for the world. But, that is the reason why he's not modeling his signature wrinkles and blue tongue in a ton of obnoxious posts on the blog. If, by chance, I'm able to snap a decent picture of him it's when he's peacefully sleeping or begging with the sweetest puppy eyes for a freshly made pot roast. Hey, who can blame him though? Certainly not this #DogMom.
