You guys. Mr. Pants is coming to sleep over at my house starting tonight for the WHOLE weekend! He is so excited and has been texting me all day. We are going to stay up all night and gossip about other dogs.

Mr. Pants is currently my most healthy relationship in my life. And no, this isn't "sad," Bob and Cathie. Hashtag love wins.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:

With Rebecca and Skylar in NYC.

OMG! How embarrassing! Corey, Skylar, and I were candidly caught laughing in this selfie! I'm so embarrassed that it was shared in IG. Hashtag we woke up like dis. 

From Brooklyn Bridge.
The Empire State Building.

I don't exactly know how I got sucked into this with Matt and Ollie Pants but it was weird.
