(review) Mr. Chewy = Happy Dogs

Mr. Chewy Dog Products If you’ve been a reader of my blog for any length of time you will know that my dogs play a big role in our family. They are our four legged children (often referred to as our girls) for better or worse and I cannot imagine our lives without them! Charlie has been my sidekick for almost ten years and has been a therapeutic presence in the midst of my illness.  Chloe provides comic relief and is Abby’s partner in crime.


So when the opportunity to check out the new site Mr. Chewy I was totally excited! I think the girls may have been even more excited when the box came in the mail! Mr. Chewy is a one-stop shopping experience for dog and cat owners that includes pet food, treats, and toys! With over 70 brands, you are sure to find what you are looking for! They also provide a subscription service that creates hassle-free delivery of your favorite pet products!


In our house, we have to be choosy about dog food and treats and Chloe does not tolerate corn well so we typically need to buy grain-free products which can be difficult when you live in a small town so I was very impressed with the wide selection of grain-free products that Mr. Chewy’s had to offer:

The girls were very willing to drive right in and start reviewing products!

Charlie took the sitting approach:

While Chloe preferred to stand:

As someone who has shopped many times online for dog food, treats, and toys, I have been very impressed by Mr. Chewy in both product selection and customer service. When I placed my order I had forgotten to enter my promo code and contacted customer service. Within minutes my issue was resolved in a efficient and courteous manner. Shipping was free on orders over $49 and my products arrived on my doorstep within two days! I will definitely be a returning customer!

30 Day Blog Challenge Finale!


Day 30: A photograph of yourself and 3 good things that have happened in the last 30 days

I cannot even believe we are at day 30 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge! It has been so much fun! Its tough posting every day but I feel like I’ve gotten to share some different sides of myself as well as having the chance to know my bloggy friends better as well! I definitely like having a guideline to help with post ideas but I’m looking forward to having a little freedom too! I’ve seen some photography challenges that I like on Pinterest but I will probably follow those using my Tumblr account, which I will link in my nav bar!


So onto the final assignment! I did not have a picture  from today (not sure if that was the intent or not but hey, I’m all from breaking some rules every now and then) but I am going to share one that is relatively recent:

30 Day Challenge Finale Self Portrait


I chose this picture from Bloggy Bootcamp as I think it is an event that really help me to become confident in myself both as a blogger and as a person. I was at a point where I was really struggling with how to move forward with my blog. I brought so much information home from BBC and I didn’t quite know what to do with it so this challenge has really helped kick off 2012 with some focus and goals in mind.


3 awesome things that have taken place in the last 30 days are:

1-Reserving my room for Type A Parent Conference in June and finding a roommate which makes me (and my wallet) breathe a little easier!

2-While Abby was staying with my parents, it was great to be able to reconnect with  my husband! I think sometimes as a parent you don’t realize how much your conversation and day revolves around your child. It can be SO easy to lose that connection as husband and wife when so much of your time is as mom and dad. So it was really fun to be able to spend that one on one time together.

3-I’ve found a group of bloggers to work with for Endometriosis Awareness Month! Not sure what we are going to do exactly but we are looking forward to using our blogs to help raise awareness! If you are a reader and would like to join in, please drop me an email! The more the merrier!

Thank you for sticking with me through this challenge!

Day 29: Sing Praise



Day29: Something you could not ever get tired of doing

I love to sing. Location does not matter. I sing at home. I sing at work (its a good thing I have an office to myself). I sing in the car. If you would ever pass me driving, I’d be the goofball singing and car dancing. Some of my most powerful worship experiences have occurred while driving. One more than one occasion I’ve had to pull over.


The one thing I can never grow tired of is singing praise to God. Even when its hard. Its in the times of darkness and frustration that my choice means the most. I can choose to turn away or I can choose to give Him honor despite my circumstances. I may not understand my circumstances and may not be able to provide an answer of why this has happened to me but I can trust in Him and His character and for me, that is worth singing for!
