My Favorite Amazon Purchases for Pups!

My Favorite Amazon Purchases for Pups!

Back in January, my partner and I added a second dog to our family. It was quite the journey to finally get not only our application accepted, but to also be approved for the dog we applied for. Many families have been adopting during the pandemic, and I am so glad so many have found their forever homes! This terrific outcome from something so horrible came with a side effect: it was very, very difficult to find a puppy for adoption that was still available. After many emails, phone calls, and applications, I managed to not only get an accepted application but also approval for a dachshund beagle mix, otherwise known as a doxle. The only “catch” according to the rescue was that he had a disability: zero vision in his right eye and only half vision in his left. Alec and I weren’t deterred. Padme has had her own share of health issues, and we knew that we could handle the new puppy’s special circumstances. And so, we put down a deposit and drove two hours to a neighboring state to pick up our new family member!

Odin, named after the Norse god who himself is missing an eye, doesn’t let his lack of vision keep him from playing or getting into trouble haha! He is very smart and has caught onto his training quickly. Having a new puppy in the household has brought some challenges so I thought it would be a good time for me to share some purchases that have really helped us with Odin as well as our senior dog, Padme who had some health issues last year that really changed how our household functions. Below I will be giving my honest reviews on products I have purchased from Amazon for our two fur babies that have improved all of our lives.

A Very Geeky Christmas: What Gifts I Got in 2020

A Very Geeky Christmas: What Gifts I Got in 2020

Last week I did a round up of gifts that I gave for this past Christmas. Today I wanted to again do something I’ve never done before! I got a few things I asked for on my 2020 wish list plus a few things that I didn’t that I absolutely love. I also went ahead and looped in some of my birthday gifts as well since I knew they might make an appearance being my birthday is exactly a week after Christmas. I think sharing these kinds of lists will maybe give you some ideas for next year or for birthdays or for those times when you see something that you just have to share with someone. So let me break down some of my favorite items that I was gifted during Christmas 2020 for you!

I thought it would be cool to do a round up of gifts that I gave for this past Christmas in a little blog post. I’ve never done something like this before! I also wanted to feature some of the small companies I purchased from to help get their names out in the world (because they honestly deserve it)! Plus, maybe it’ll give you some ideas for next year or for birthdays or for those times when you see something that you just have to share with someone. So let me break down some of my favorite items that I gifted during Christmas 2020 for you!

Seriously Geeky Santa: 3D Modeling and A Geeky Gal Convention?!

Heather at Just Geeking By has done it again! Along with Seriously Geeky Sundays, Heather has put together a lovely community event to play a seriously good blog version of Secret Santa. Each “Santa” gave their recipients 6 personal and unique questions to answer over on their blog. Today is the day that I get to share my answers with my Santa! I hope you all enjoy these questions as much as I enjoyed answering them! My Santa did an amazing job with these.

A Very Geeky Christmas: Planner Presents for Bullet Journalists

A Very Geeky Christmas: Planner Presents for Bullet Journalists

Last week I shared a gift list for pets & pet owners, and the week before I shared my personal wish list for 2020. This week I was inspired to put together a gift guide for those who love planners, journals, and bullet journals. I have a planner and a digital bullet journal myself so many of these gift ideas are things I can personally endorse or items I have favorited for myself. Hopefully you can find something here for the geeky planner or a geeky bujo owner on your list this year! Or for yourself; I won’t tell. 😉
