Meet Samson

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Soooooooo, Connor and I got a PUPPY!!!!!

It's been something we've been wanting to do for a while but with the craziness of school and work, we knew we wouldn't have time to stay home and take care of him. But now that school and work is dunzo for me (Connor got a sweet job right after graduation! Yay!), it was the perfect time to get a little furball of our own.

My friend Gentri's sister, adopted the cutest little puppy a while back and when she shared him on her Instagram, I fell in loooooove. So when I was on the hunt to get a pup of our own, I asked Gentri where they got their dog from. I emailed the breeder and they happened to have two puppies available that weekend! It was just too perfect. They drove him up to Provo this past Saturday and voila! We were insta-parents of this little guy.

We decided to name him Samson because Connor wanted to name him after a big, strong figure because he is so tiny and innocent. I mean, LOOK AT HIM!!! He's a toy Australian Shepard--Pomeranian mix and just about the cutest thing I've ever laid my eyes on.

You are my sweetest downfall . . . .
Regina Spektor, anyone? ;)
Samson went back to bed, not much hair left on his head . . . .

He's only six weeks old so pretty much all he does is play hard and sleep hard. Connor is extremely jealous of his life right now. I will probably be featuring Samson A LOT on my blog from now on because I have become a crazy lady who is obsessed with her dog. So hope that's okay with you all! ;)

Our friends own a cat and we really wanted them to get along but as you can tell in the picture above, she's just not really having it . . . .

Which brings me to my outfit today!
When I saw this shirt in H&M, I knew I had to get it because it was just too perfect.

Clutch: c/o Dress Up
Shirt: H&M
Pants: c/o SWELL
Booties: c/o LuLu*s
Watch: c/o Arvo
Necklace: H&M [similar]

always fighting, but always together

Oversized shirts are the best, especially this one. I love dressing them up with skinny bottoms and some heels, giving it an edgy look! This clutch from Dress Up also adds a little more of a dressy vibe to the outfit and I love it because it can also be turned into a purse! Dress Up has sweet accessories (among other things) and even has some similar clutches in coral, mint, and taupe! Check it out for sure.

Hope everyone is staying nice and toasty today!
I say that because the weather has been a bit strange here lately.
It appears to be sunny outside, yet the air is freeeezing.

If your heater is broken like ours is, find a nice cuddle buddy to keep you warm.
I've got mine right here :)

  13. NO NO NO NOOOO TOO CUTE. Ahhh! I did the same exact thing. Graduated school and was like...I'm panicking, guess I'll finally get a dog. I have a purebread Pom named CousCous, and he is literally my life. They are the sweetest little baby fox bears. Welcome to the clubbbb! I want to steal him!!!

    xo, grace (

  14. Aww, he is so cute!! But please don't say you "adopted" him when you purchased him from a breeder... these are very different things!

  15. Gah, so cute!!!!! I know what you mean about being obsessed with your dog...when my family and I got our first puppy, we pretty much never left the house and it seems like life still revolves around her even though she's already 7 years old!

  16. this reminds me of my little jake when he was a baby. he's a pomchi. poms are such a fun breed. omg Samson's a cutie.

  17. I can't possibly decide which is cuter - the puppy or your cute-but-edgy outfit! Worryingly, something about your puppy curled up in your arms reminds me of my 2yo boy (although my boy has less fur!!). Thanks so much lovely for linking up to #AllAboutYou, hope to see you back tomorrow!


Don't be shy! I love reading all of your comments!
