October 2014 BarkBox!!


Penni has been LOVING getting her monthly Barkbox in the mail! In fact her newest thing is as soon as it comes she knows it is her box and will just sit next to it and pout until I open it for her!

#PenniPuppy is Soooooo determined to get into her at @barkbox She started opening the#BarkBox on her own

So Penni was super excited about what was in her Halloween box, Although we were a little sad that Barkbox didn’t give Penni the Halloween paper that everyone else got.


One thing that I was really excited about this month is they included a scout's honor promise that if the pup doesn’t ever love an item in their box they will replace it. I sent them an email about one of the items in this month’s box but no response yet.

The first thing in the box was Hartland Premium Weasand Strips; which is made from 100% cow gullet and made in the USA in Nebraska! Penni LOVED hers!! The Value is $3.

Then she got 2 bags of treats!

Baker’s Best Autumn Harvest Treats: 3 ingredients never tasted so good to your pup! Made from Liver, Italian olive oil, and oat flour from Canada, these crunchy classics are sure to be a hit around the neighborhood!! $10 retail

Max & Ruffy’s Pumpkin Patch Bites: Made in Maryland with organic, GMO-free ingredients, these terrifyingly tasty treats are also free of animal products, preservatives and dairy. Nothing but goodness in ‘em! $4 retail

Penni LOVES these!!! She adores the treats that we have gotten in the boxes so far!

We also got 2 toys this month: as usual Penni is pretty Meh with the toys although she does seem a little interested in the Mummy toy

Plush Puppies Squeaker Mat Mummy: With multiple squeakers through the body and double stitching for durability, this squeaker mat from Plush Puppies is ready for whatever adventure your pup has in mind! $15 retail

Penni has snuggled the mummy but she doesn’t like squeakers usually so I am waiting to see what happens when the mummy squeaks.

The second toy is a toy that Penni is NOT interested in at all sadly.

Petprojekt Squeeki Skull: What’s Howloween without some spooky skeleton friends? BarkBox pups are brave, no need to be afraid of the Petprojekt squeeki skull there is to much fun to be had with it! $8 retail.

Do you get your pets a subscription service? If you want to sign up for Barkbox and use the referral links in this post you are supposed to get 10 off your box!!

October LootCrate!!!


So I will admit I was NOT excited for Kensei to get his Lootcrate this month. The theme was Fear and all the teaser images were very zombie heavy and I am NOT a Zombie girl in any way shape or form! I was pleasantly surprised about this Lootcrate though.

So what did we get?

first my favorite Item in the whole box!

This is the Death By Kittens T-shirt!! YES those are kittens in the shape of a skull!

Then we got

Toxic Candy Waste and the Loot crate button

Third we got a Dead Rising 3 Sledgesaw Hammer Pen, which is a Capcom and Lootcrate exclusive, quite honestly this isn’t really of all that interest for Kensei and myself, BUT we have a friend that is really into this game so We will probably be passing this along!

Another thing I was excited for was a book! They sent us How To Survive A Sharknado, I love reading books like this!!

back on the not really our thing train, we got an art print from JSalvador’s SuperEmoFriends, “Oh, Brother”

A Walking Dead Lootcrate Exclusive comic

Slashes and bites Temporary Tattoos,

and we also got a Smite Gift card which was a super7 and lootcrate exclusive, unfortunately we don’t play the game so it is wasted on us.

The booklet was all 3D and zombieish which I didn’t go for at all, although I did run around for about 30 min pretending to be the Doctor in my 3D Specs!

Do you get LootCrate? What did you think of this months box?

My Current Favorite App!!!


Hey guys! I wanted to share something with you all really fast! I could possibly be the last person on the planet to know about this like I was with Swagbucks (which is an amazing awesome site and if you want me to do a post about them let me know!)

But there is an App called Mobee which is for both iPhone and Android, (which I like!) it is a mystery secret shopper app, there are missions set up all over the area and you go to the places and do the missions and get points. For example today I did a mission at Starbucks where I went in, got my tea (Which I was getting anyways) answered a few questions about the cleanliness of the store and got points on the app!

You can use the points for gift cards, I’m saving up for a 50 Sephora card, but they have Target, Best Buy, TJMaxx, Amazon, all kinds and it is just going to places you normally go!

If you decide to sign up for Mobee Please use my referral code (not sponsored but I will get 100 points) and you will get an extra 300 points to start with, that is over half way to a $5 Starbucks card! My code is 2ZG3!!

Do you use any apps like this? Would you use an app like this? What do you guys think?

Stay With Me Music Monday!


Sam Smith Stay With Me

Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love cause I'm just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don't want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

Oh, won't you stay with me?
Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Why am I so emotional?
No it's not a good look, gain some self control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn't hurt

Oh, won't you stay with me?
Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won't you stay with me?
Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won't you stay with me?
Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Prosperous Pooch Pumpkin Spice Puppy Treats!!


Today I wanted to share some amazing puppy treats with you guys! I recently discovered Monica and her shop through a Facebook group I am in!! She makes homemade healthy puppy treats and they are freaking amazing!!

Here are her Facebook and Etsy shop pages!

Monica asked me if I though my girls would be interested in testing out her treats and then posting a review on them, and we were all for it!!

They cam super quick, and they were freshly made! She wrapped them up in pretty purple tissue paper!

Major presentation points!

I loved the fact that the made by date was on the bag, and as you can tell from this picture Penni KNEW these were for her and was already dying to get one!

We got the Medium sized treats and they are pretty large in size which is great for all 3 of my girls! I gave Penni her treat and then took some out with me when I was training LadyBug and Sugar, (my fiancée's girls) They all adored them!

I use the What is fat? Puppy meme here because honestly I think Penni would devour the entire bag If I let her!



#PenniPuppy thinks this daily

I loved the smell just opening the envelope, as a quintessential white girl in the fall, Pumpkin Spice everything is my jam, and they smelled amazing! I love the fact that they are completely natural as well!

Monica has the ingredient list as “Oat flour, brown rice flour, pumpkin, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, flax seed, peanut butter, ascorbic powder (vitamin C, a natural preservative).”

So they are healthy for your puppy as well as super yummy! Penni literally has drooled all over the bed as soon as I pull one out of the bag for her!

If you have a puppy I highly recommend that you check out Prosperous Pooch!

If you do let me know which flavor you get! I am planning on getting the girls some more treats around Christmas time!!

Here is Penni determined to get some treats!

My Dream Job Blogtober14

The Daily Tay

When I was little I wanted nothing more than to be an actress, but not the Hollywood type, I wanted to be on Broadway. I wanted to spend a lot of time on stage, singing and dancing and acting. I also wanted to have a HUGE family, at least 5 kids.

What did you want to be when you were a child?

September 2014 BarkBox!!


So this month my Penni Puppy got her BarkBox again, and she as usual LOVED the treats, but was meh about the toys.

She knows it is her box now though, as soon as I sit down to start opening it, she is already on the bed with her head in my way tying to get to the BarkBox before I can move things

the first thing she got this month was a PetProject Skrubal Football – according to BarkBox this toy is made from 100% natural rubber, and is durable, colorful and ready to hit the field – it is $14 per toy.

Penni’s Opinion? This is a Meh toy for her, she doesn’t play fetch or catch or with balls in general, the only ball I’ve ever seen her play with is a pink tennis ball and she will only play with it by herself, and she throws it into the air, catches it and repeats for about 5 min and then she’s done with it for a week or so.

My opinion: We will be trying to play with this is Sugar and Lady and see what happens!!


Second she got Barkworthies Sweet Potato Steak Fries – Sweet potatoes are taking over as the healthy alternative for those of us who need our fry fix – and your pup shouldn’t miss out! Made from 100% sweet potato, these steak fries from Barkworthies are perfect for sensitive bellies and pups with allergies. $8 a bag!

Penni’s Opinion: She was SUPER excited for these, I didn’t get get the bag open yet when she was already trying to stick her face into the bag. She crunched down on 2 of these and then licked up all the crumbs!

My opinion: I LOVED the fact that the ingredients list only had one item! All that was in these were sweet potatoes! I thought the fries were a little dryer than they should be but it didn’t seem to bother Penni and even though they are 8 a bag we might get her more of these!!

Next she got Safemade Pet Pawcford Pennant – a BarkBox exclusive! What better way to show your team spirit than a classic university pennant? Raise that paw up high for your alma mater, pups!! $7

Penni’s Opinion: Meh

My opinion: This is a super adorable crinkle and squeak toy! Sadly Penni isn’t really into those types of toys either, but I think it is freaking adorable!!

Petsafe Indigo SmokeHouse Strips Bacon – We’ve heard victory smells delicious. made with 100% USA pork and no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives you will want to refrigerate after opening. these goodies are best consumes within 3 days of unsealing and store in an airtight container.  -- $7

Penni’s Opinion – this was another one where I didn’t even need to open the box all the way for her to want it, they come sealed in an airtight food saver bag and I haven’t opened them for her just yet because of the use by 3 days and needing to be refrigerated, there is a good amount of treats in the bag so I might just end up giving her, sugar and lady all of them at one time.

And lastly we got another Etta Says Duck Chew – Made from wholesome American Duck, Etta Says Duck Chews have always been a favorite to pups world wide. – $4


She knew what this was before I opened the package, we got them once before from barkbox and Penni LOVED them!!

as for Penni’s opinion, I will let her speak for herself!

So far we really like BarkBox even if the toys are hit and miss for her! Do you have BarkBox for your baby? What do you think?
