And just like that we are at the end of October… Oh geez…
Where has this year gone?! I feel like I just went on a camping trip and next thing I realize that was over 2 months ago! What?! I had all these hopes of losing a decent amount weight before my friends wedding two weeks ago. That didn’t happen lol!
I am going to have an honest and raw moment with you guys. I have gained 30lbs. since my wedding day and I have even gained weight since August! I tried to put a dress on last night that I had worn in August to a friend’s bridal shower. Yeah, it did not end up fitting very well. I got it on but not well! That was a huge wake up call for me. I have never noticed a change that affected my immediate clothes that dramatically. I have worn that dress once so it isn’t like it shrunk or anything.
That being said, I am vowing to you as my readers and to myself that I will live a much healthier lifestyle from here on out! Ski season is coming and in my current condition, I will not be able to really enjoy myself or push as hard as I want to. That is unacceptable. I have dreams of running races, long long races. I can’t do that with my current lifestyle. Something has to give.
From here on out you will most likely see more posts of me trying to achieve that healthy lifestyle I long for. You will see me playing outside and pushing myself in the outdoors. I can’t wait to share my achievements with you and my adventures as well! Hopefully some pups will go along with me so you get to see their cute faces every now and then! Lol! Faelyn is pretty cute to look at 😉
Let’s do this!
So, while I say that Huskies are wonderful, they also are not great sometimes. They have their quirks. I mean that is just like any dog you know? Huskies can just be way more intense about their quirks than some dogs.
Reasons NOT to Have Huskies
~ They are crazy! Like seriously insane. Faelyn at four and a half is just now finally starting to calm down. If you do not get them out, they will get destructive. They are a high energy dog and need to be taken out regularly. They really must live in an active lifestyle.
~ They are very independent. If you give them a command they will often look at you and think “that sounds like a good idea, but let me see if that fits in with my plan.” They like to do what they want to do, not always what you want them to do.
~ They are extremely smart. This is great sometimes but sometimes they are just too smart for their own good. They will get in trouble in ways that you never expected they would. They get into things you didn’t think they knew what it was.
~ They like to run. And I mean run. When they escape from an enclosed space they pick one direction and just keep on running. It takes a lot to get them back. We often have to bribe our boys with car rides. We pull up alongside them and ask them if they want to go for a ride. That is the only way that we can get them to come home.
~ They can be highly destructive. HIGHLY. Most of the time most people don’t understand that a husky is not your typical family dog. They are not great to just be left inside. They need attention and running or hiking or just getting out and exercising. They are a working dog. They make wonderful family dogs if you are a very active family. If not, don’t get one. You will be so upset with this dog all the time. You have to keep them active otherwise they get cabin fever and destroy things.
So, when you think about getting a Husky, please keep both of these posts in mind and make sure you are getting the right fit for your family as well as for them!
I love my two huskies more than anything (except maybe my husband ;P ). I don’t think everyone should have them. They are their own special breed. You have to have the right dynamic to have huskies. Anyway, that is for the next post. But here are the reasons they are awesome!
~ They are crazy! I know I know most people don’t think that is a great reason to have a dog. But I love their spastic crazy personalities. They have so much personality.
(btw not my photo but so stinking hilarious and true) My boys would definitely try something like this.
~They have amazingly beautiful eyes! Bright blue or even mismatched colors!
This is my little man, his eyes are so bright and blue, I love it!
~They sleep in the most hilarious positions!
These are just a few of the positions I have caught both of them in.
~They are pack dogs. This means they are extremely loyal. Not only to each other but to their owners as well. It is a great trait that I wouldn’t trade for the world. That doesn’t mean they have to be by your side at all times because they are still insanely independent.
I love having huskies! I don’t think I would want any other breed. They are wonderful!
Alrighty, so much for trying to finish strong lol. I promise they will all be posted before the end of March though.
March 26: Playing With Shadow

March 27: Natural Light
I get some really great natural light that streams in through my windows 🙂

I can’t wait for life to get green again 🙂
Keep an eye out tomorrow for the last picture of the photo challenge!
Sorry about the delay on this one too guys. I spent the past two days enjoying the amazing 70 degree weather we have been having! I have to get outside just to keep my sanity lol. I got to go hiking yesterday with my little man Faelyn and went for a run today! Love it! But anyway, back to the photography challenge!
Something From a Distance:
I get to call this home! How beautiful is that?! I think that might be pike’s peak but I could be wrong. I can’t quite remember.
Whatever I Want:
These two are besties for sure! They really do love hanging out with each other and playing with each other. It gives them each a buddy so that they are not so lonely. I love both personalities.
Anyway, enough about my children lol.
I figured since I had already showed you pictures of my little man, I had to show you a picture of my big boy, Halo. He is a 9 year old husky that we have been fostering for a friend but we have a feeling he might have just found a home with us. He is wonderful! He and Faelyn get along so well its great!
What a cutie right?
So, today Faelyn provided a perfect opportunity to post a picture of whatever I want. His bed is the futon in our living room. He loves that futon and gets upset when you are on it lol. That’s ok though because we are not on it very often. The couch is way more comfy anyway. I love my dog. He is essentially my child and so I post a lot of pictures of him lol. I just couldn’t help it today, his face is so cute!
I mean, honestly, how can you not love that face?!?! So adorable!
Last night is snowed, today it is around 55 degrees and tomorrow is 70. What is up with Denver weather?! This is so strange. lol.
