blog, meet Oakley

Well hello again, Blogland. Long time no talk as usual. I finally have a minute to sit down and blog, so I'm taking advantage of it. I'm currently sitting at my dining room table using my computer. This is exciting for two reasons. 1) I finally have a dining room table and 2) I finally have my computer back. I've been here in Montana for three months now, and this is the first time I've been able to use my computer because, well, I left my charger in Arizona and I was too cheap to order a new one. So lucky for me, my best friend Carlin from Sunshine and Squats came to visit and brought my charger. She doesn't know that that's the only reason I invited her, but that can be our little secret. Kidding.

So, since the last time I came around here, lots of things have happened. Most importantly, we have two new additions to the family. One's a little more exciting (and a little more work) than the other, but I'll let you guess which one's which. So, blog, let me introduce you to.....

My new car. Yep, I bought my very first brand new car! My first big girl purchase. Look at me, being an adult and stuff. So I bought a 2015 Jeep Patriot. I like it, it's an affordable SUV with everything I wanted in it. Heated seats (a must in Montana), leather, a touch screen, and plenty of room for the second new member in the back seat.

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know who I'm talking about. But if not, meet Oakley.

Yes, we have matching sweaters.

Whoops, sorry for the photo dump. But that's our sweet, crazy little girl Oakley. She's almost five months now, and we love her to death! Having a puppy is definitely a lot of work, but she's the sweetest little thing in the world. She loves to play fetch and chew on bones. She loooves the snow. She likes to eat socks and bras and shoes which is super fun. She was potty trained right from the beginning and is pretty well trained now as far as things like sit, lay, and come are concerned. She's basically the bomb.com. She's our little baby and our family is so perfect! I couldn't be happier.

Man, I'm glad you guys finally get to meet (and by meet I mean look at a bunch of cute pictures of) her! So anyway, things in Montana are going really well. DJ and I both work a lot, but when we're home together we have so much fun. It's finally starting to warm up so our days are consisting of taking Oakley to the park, going out shooting, hanging out with friends by the fire, and all that fun stuff. Next weekend we're going to find some hiking spots and I'm super excited about that! I really love life here in Montana. We have some great friends. I love my job. The weather is beautiful. I get to spend (almost) every day with the man of my dreams! We've waited so long for this and it feels so surreal to finally have it.

I've been super MIA, so leave me a comment letting me know what you've been up to!! Love you guys! XOXO
