Thanksgiving Day & My Pet Tag!

Hey everyone!

I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it). Unfortunately, I’m still not feeling the best so it was a rough day…but I pushed through it and still had fun.

No crazy stories for you other than I had two turkey dinners. My husband and I are blessed to get along with both of our families. I have a huge family and he has a very small family, but we always see both sides on Thanksgiving and Christmas. So we started out at my parents from 12-4, and then we headed to Paul’s parents and stayed the rest of the night (where Paul’s cousin and I dominated at Euchre 4-0 😂).

It was a good day. I love our families. How was your day?

For the second half of this post, I wanted to do this really cute tag I found here! We can’t have my dog in our appartment because of breed restrictions and the fact that she LOVES to run, so she lives with my parents. That doesn’t stop us from sneaking her over to stay on weekends sometimes, so of course, she’s here now. 😊

My Pet Tag

1. What is your pets name?


2. What kind of pet is it and what breed?

Cheyenne is a lab/pitbull mix. Partly why she can’t live in our apartment, which is so unfortunate because the worst she would do is lick you to death.

3. How long have you had your pet friend?

Cheyenne came into our lives in September, 2009 ♡

4. How did you get your pet?

I had been searching for a dog for a while. I worked at a doggy daycare that, at the time, was fostering two great dogs. One of them was a beautiful white husky, named Luke. I was ready to put the application in when my aunt called my dad asking if we were still looking for a dog.

She was driving along when the car in front of her threw something out of the window. My aunt was pretty sure it was a puppy, so she pulled over and that’s how I got my baby. Fate. ♡

5. How old is your pet?

She’s 8.

6. What are some quirky things about your pets personality?

You’d have to meet her, she has the best personality. Remember when I mentioned she would lick you to death? I wasn’t kidding. This dog loves to lick. If you’re not into being licked, don’t go bare foot around her.

She also loves her beauty rest. At 9PM, she will go lay in bed. And then huff and whine until you come in.

Food is her best friend. If you even think the words “treat,” “cookie,” or “food,” she will be at your feet. She knows the people who will sneak her food and won’t, and she stays by those people that will for the most part (I’m a mean mom, according to Chey).

7. What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?

Cheyenne is my best friend. She came into my life when I needed her. We saved each other.

8. What are some of your favorite past times with your pet?

There are so many. When I worked at that doggy daycare, I could bring her for free when I worked, which was the best. She got to play and socialize, and I wasn’t worried about her being home alone.

9. What are nicknames that you call your pet?

Chey. Kid. Little girl. Bum (Paul and his family call her that for the most part).

That’s all I have for you today. Let me know about your Thanksgiving day and if you do the pet tag.
