Happy HOWLOWEEN, Noshers!! Today I’m happy to share our October BarkBox, which is, of course, Halloween themed!  I had previous written about our September Barkbox, a gift from Toby’s friend Buddy.  Buddy shared the love once again this month, but I told Toby that the subsequent boxes would have to go back to Buddy – we don’t want to make frenemies!  As mentioned with our first Barkbox, this super-cute monthly subscription box service surprises your furry friend with toys, treats and other goodies. As you can see, Toby was being a good boy sitting next to his box, but he really wanted to dig in! And could you blame him – look at what we received this month: Continue Reading

Apple Picking at Alldredge Orchards!

H-apple-y Monday, Noshers!  How was your weekend?  We had a pretty good one – we went apple picking!  It was one of the last weekends to pick apples (and we were forewarned that the apples left to pick were “challenging”) – for some reason, October really got away from me.  We really wanted to bring our pup Toby along, so we were happy to find Alldredge Orchards.

Two Paws Up for Barkbox!

Happy FriYAY, Noshers!! Today I’m happy to share our first experience with BarkBox – or rather, Toby’s first experience with BarkBox!  I realize I haven’t done a proper introduction of the newest member of the Nosh family – I’ll have to remedy that soon! In the meantime, Toby’s friend Buddy sent us a BarkBox as a welcome gift.  Isn’t that sweet? September’s theme was Bark to School, of course!  As you can see in the first photo, Toby was getting pretty impatient while waiting for me to take a photo – he wanted do dig right into the goodies. Can you blame him?

For the uninitiated, BarkBox is a monthly subscription box service for – you guessed it – your dog, featuring toys, treats, and goodies! I have a Korean beauty subscription box (Jini Beauty, which I’ve written about here on the blog), so why shouldn’t my dog have one as well? The Bark to School box definitely didn’t disappoint: Continue Reading

Happy Wednesday, all!  Today, I’m super excited to share some snaps from a recent weekend trip to Scottsdale and Sedona.  This part of the country is  just amazing – red rocks galore, saguaros towering over agave plants, and 120 degree weather (as I’ve told everyone who gasped – “But it’s a dry heat!”).  I  completed some fantastic hikes and relaxed a ton at our home base resort.  I think the pictures speak for themselves though – check it out!

Don’t have much to complain about when was the view from our balcony at The Westin Kierland!  As a loyal Starwood Preferred Guest member, we used points to pay for this room. Yay! Continue Reading
