Snowpocalypse Round Two

IMG_4410

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Whoo hoo! I am so excited that I did not miss Round 2 of the Southern Snowpocalypse because this Southern girl likes to have photo shoots in the snow *wink*

Two weeks ago, I missed a wintry snow mix that crippled the city of Birmingham. As y’all may recall, I was Stranded in the Hometown. BUT this time, I was home as snug as a bug in a rug, and I am so happy that I got to enjoy the snowy awesomeness of winter storm Pax. Oh, it was so delightful! Fluffy snow in the Deep South–now, that is something that I can take once or twice in a couple of years *wink*

Okay–I think that is enough chit chat for now because I am just dying to show y’all some of the fabulous pictures from the snow day–I mean–night *wink* Be sure to check out the VIP Facebook page for the rest of the pictures! Now without further ado, I present to you the VIP’s photo shoot in the snow!

After the photo shoot, we decided to have a bit of more fun…*wink*

Ziva’s Third Birthday!

Today, January 25, is my precious Giant Schnauzer’s 3rd birthday! My goodness, it seems like just yesterday we were going to pick her up in Louisiana!

Ziva and I the day we picked her up. Look how small she was! Oh, it is hard to believe she was ever that tiny! haha
Ziva and I the day I adopted her. Look how small she was! Oh, it is hard to believe she was ever that tiny! haha

For Ziva’s third birthday, we celebrated with Gigi’s Cupcakes and new toys from Pet Smart. Yes…I bought my dog a Gigi’s cupcake…she has a sweet tooth *wink

Watch the hilarious video below to see Ziva enjoying her pretty pink Gigi’s cupcake :)
