Annnnd BREAK

It's crunch time, y'all. I have about 16 days left to study for my CPT exam. Just a little FYI...I might be a little MIA from the blog. I'm gonna post a few times a week, but probably not everyday for the next few weeks. Gotta use my time wisely, you know? ;)

I did take a study break on Sunday and it was glorious. Adam & I took Buck to the dog beach and we all had a blast!

Here are some selfies, because what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't take any? I'm obsessed with that tank top...my life in a nutshell. Power to the petite people!

How freaking cute are they? This was Buck's first time swimming! I made Adam throw him in so I could take a few pictures of him doing the doggy paddle...which he is a pro at (obviously). When we first got there, he ran into the water on his own. He stayed in for a few seconds and ran back out. But he was not too happy when Adam tossed him in...he didn't trust us for like 10 minutes. I can't blame him though, because the water was freezing!

He made a new friend...the cutest little bull dog puppy. That puppy was like 15 weeks old and Buck is about 4 months old, so they got along great. They fought all day, rolling around in the sand, and happily showering all of us with said sand.

I'm so glad that I took a few hours out of the day to relax and enjoy some time with my boys. I think it's really important to work hard to reach your goals and make your dreams a reality, but it's also important not to lose yourself in that and to remember to live your life, too.

Well...back to the books!
