My first South Dakota experience - not what I envisioned!

[Badlands National Park]

Last summer my in-laws took us all on a family road trip to South Dakota.  I have such beautiful pictures from this trip and in my effort to bring Emilee Speaks back around to a lifestyle blog, we're going to revisit this trip today.

On June 1st, 8 adults loaded up into a 12 passenger van and we took off for South Dakota.  We had about a 9hr drive ahead of us.  I love a good road trip!  We listened to music, visited with each other, read, slept...  While I love road trips, I'm a very anxious passenger.  I drive 100% of the time in our day to day life, so not having that control is hard on me.

I’ve enjoyed vaping for several years now.  My favorite time of day (aside from my nightly routine) is my morning coffee and vape session.  It’s my favorite way to greet the day.  I sit down at my desk with my vape, coffee, and my planner to see what the day will bring.  Vaping is an alternative to smoking, and smells MUCH better!

I thought it would be fun to bring together coffee and vaping by sharing some of my favorite fancy coffee recipes paired with different vape flavors.

The Good, The Bad and the Pugly | BARKBOX UNBOXING

Monday, May 15, 2017

It's Callie and I's favorite time of the month again!  Barkbox day!  We excitedly accepted it from the postal carrier and ran in to film an unboxing for you!

This month's theme is wild west and it couldn't be any cuter.  Little miss recently got her summer haircut.  She started blowing her coat and I just couldn't keep it under control.  We'd brush twice a day and she was still matting and tangling.  So I grabbed my trusty Wahl clippers and went to town.  If you're curious, I used 3/8" on her body, 5/8" on her legs, and 3/4" guards on her head.  She's happy as can be and prancing all over.

Without further ado, Here's our unboxing video!
