Mater's 1st Birthday

 Today is it's my puppy puggle Mater's 1st birthday!!

On the left is the second day that we got him and on the right is Mater and I on the 4th of July.
My Mater has gotten so big! I do miss him being a little puppy...but he is still adorable!
AND still a handful!! 

Since my last post I have been super again.
A few weeks ago I began my Master's program in teaching at San Diego State University.
It is a three year course, but is only held for 6 weeks each summer. 
I can't believe its almost over. I am ready for it to be over as I have been writing papers and doing lots of reading--I need a break!

I did get a chance to create a small area in my house that I am going to use for seasonal decoration.
The first one I made was for 4th of July!
I bought the ribbon and vintage tin picture at Joann's, the glass jar I bought at Micheal's, and I spray painted a candle holder that I bought from Goodwill. 

Here are a couple of pictures:

Until next time,
