Doggy Daycare!

While we were in the UK, Maisy and Buzz stayed at a local doggy daycare! They absolutely LOVE going there and are always so tired when they come home. Every few days the place we take them uploads photos of the dogs playing onto Facebook, which is great, especially when we are in a different country. Here are a few photos from their stay; notice how they gradually get dirtier! 😀 Luckily, they are bathed every week & they had a trim before they came back home. 🙂

Back to Blighty

We’ve been back in Alabama for just over 2 weeks after our big trip back to the UK…I’ve only just caught up with my sleep!  We had booked our holiday quite some months ago and started organising a few things in advance.  It was Adam’s first time back to the UK since we moved to the USA in 2014 so we knew that we would have a lot of family and friends to catch up with.  He was also his best friend’s best man so we knew that he would be needed for a few wedding duties, and a stag do!  This meant that we couldn’t plan too much on a strict schedule.  We seemed to be so busy during our time over there that I didn’t really take that many photos, and a lot of what I did take will be in a separate blog post completely; just for those Harry Potter fans like me. 🙂

Mobile airport is only 45 minutes away from where we live so we flew from Mobile to Atlanta, then Atlanta to Heathrow.  The regional plane was the smallest I’ve ever been on!

After a few days of visiting friends & family, we had 2 nights in Sheffield City Centre.  We both went to University in Sheffield so it was nice to be back in the city.  We stayed in the Leopold Hotel, which is right in the centre, is good quality & a reasonable price too.  One of our favourite restaurants in Sheffield is a ‘conveyor’ style Japanese restaurant called Sakushi, so of course we had to eat there.  We also tried Bill’s one morning for breakfast.  I think there’s quite a few of these around the country; great decor and atmosphere but I wasn’t too impressed with the food.  It was still a treat to have a full English breakfast though!

Atlanta Travelling…The Right Way

Baaahhh…this post was supposed to be finished a few weeks ago as we went to Atlanta at the end of Feb!  I’m still putting it up though as hopefully you’ll still find it interesting 🙂

Since moving to Alabama, we’ve been up to Atlanta every year to watch the Supercross at the Georgia Dome.  Atlanta is a 5 hour drive away for us and each time we’ve been, we have driven up on the Saturday morning and travelled home Sunday morning after we’ve visited Ikea.   This year, we wanted to experience Atlanta properly and do something more than just the supercross, so we decided to stay for 2 nights and do a few ‘touristy’ things.

On the Friday morning, we dropped the dogs off at their daycare place and started our journey.  After searching a few things to do on Pinterest, I found a Google Maps tour of The Walking Dead filming locations.  Quite a lot of them were grouped together and they were on our route anyway so we decided to go and have a look as we are quite big Walking Dead fans!  A couple of locations were just derelict buildings/streets and weren’t too exciting.  Then we managed to find Alexandria, some abandoned train tracks and the town that is Woodbury in the show!  If you’re a fan of the show you’ll definitely recognise some of these locations.  To top our experience off we ate in Norman Reedus’s restaurant and visited a themed gift shop, which had actual show props in the basement!

Sunday Sevens #92 – Catch Up Time!

Surprise Surprise! Here I am doing a Sunday Sevens post…on a Sunday (well in my half of the world anyway)…the last Sunday Sevens post I wrote was back in August! Crazy!  Well, here I am writing another and I’m hoping that they will become a little more regular.  I’m really trying with my time management at the moment!

The last ‘homey’ style blog I wrote was about our trip to California.  I’ve done quite a bit since then so here’s a few catch up photos. 🙂

Here’s your Maisy & Buzz fix.  Still as cute and cheeky as ever!

Review: Ipsy & Boxycharm January 2017

When I blogged about my Birchbox subscription a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I had also subscribed to a couple of others.  Well, here they are!  I decided to show you my January 2017 Ipsy & Boxycharm packages in one blog/vlog.

Ipsy is a subscription bag rather than a box and costs $10 each month.  It contains 5 sample sized products AND you get it in a cute little bag!

Boxycharm is slightly different as you get 5 full sized products but it’s slightly higher priced at $21.  I’ve pictured both below & also talked about them in the vlog.  Let me know what you think to each.  Have you ever used any of the products I’ve received?

Review: Home Sewn by Cassandra Ellis + Giveaway

Due to life being extremely busy of late, I’m only just getting round to writing about a book I received last year from Blogging for Books.  When I made my last selection I can remember how great it was that there was finally a sewing book!  Of course, I didn’t hesitate when choosing AT ALL.
