Humpday Confessions & Giveaway!

Well, hello, humpday. It’s been awhile since I’ve confessed to celebrate this fine day of hump. I guess that means I have a lot to get off my chest since it’s been at least a month since my last confession, and I have a few doozies.

Disneyland Collage / hellorigby! Since this post is mostly about my September, I figured I’d share some photos from the favorite thing I did in September. Disneyland!

Rigby has fleas. Again.

I remember one of my first times linking up for Humpday Confessions, I shared that I found a flea on Rigby and how I felt like a terrible Dog Mom. Well, here we are again. I’m not quite sure how this happened, but I’m thinking his flea meds were basically due and one little flea jumped ship from one dog to Rigby at daycare, and here we are. While I don’t think we have a serious infestation, it’s still gross and we definitely are feeling itchy (the mind likes to play dirty, dirty tricks when it comes to bugs!)

I’m terrible at keeping up and being organized.

I’d like to think I’m super good at planning out my blog posts, responding to email, having my sh*t together. You know, the big girl stuff. This past month I feel like I totally failed at many of those things. I just overbooked September, between being on vacation for an entire week (and having way less downtime than expected), then coming home to real life and preplanned events… it was a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I fulfilled all of my commitments, and everything got done… but there may have been some hair-pull-out-worthy situations along the way. Fingers crossed October goes easy on me.

And speaking of, I’ve been terrible at remembering all the things.

For instance, I just realized my Mom’s birthday is this weekend. (Hi Mom! Just kidding, I don’t think she’s ever read my blog.) Sure I knew it was coming up, but for some reason associating it with this weekend was not processing. Further proof I’m a big fail. Maybe I need another vacation.

What I am good at (I hope) is bringing you things you like.

One of them is this cute clutch from GiGi New York, and it’s adorable small and such a pretty color. Nina and her sponsors are giving it away to one lucky winner this month, and that could be you. Get yourself entered below!

I’m so excited to raffle off a GiGi New York baby bag, beloved by fashion bloggers, bloggers, and fashionistas alike. And I get to do with it some of my fave girls. Happy Monday. Am I right? GIGI IMG_8764

So tell me, what’s something you’ve been excelling or failing at this month? I’d love to hear how you keep everything organized too if you have any suggestions!

      I don’t blame you – fleas are so gross! Luckily, I think the ones I was seeing were dying from the treatment, as we don’t seem to have anymore! Phew!

    I confess: Warner has horrible allergies right now and I seriously cannot control them and it makes me feel like the worst person ever.

    Also I definitely suck at keeping organized when I’m on vacation.

    Oh no…fleas?! Not good. Totally know what you mean about your mind playing tricks on you. If I even see a winged insect I’m itchy for a good hour or two!

    Poor Rigs. :o(

    I have trouble with the whole scheduling thing myself. I have it down at work. I mean that schedule is about as impeccable as they come but it’s like all of the energy for it runs out there. If it weren’t for my husband I would never be anywhere I need to be. He is the keeper of the calendar thank goodness! He has it all synced. I don’t even know how he does it. I have a paper At-A-Glance calendar on my desk that keeps me running!

      I definitely keep more organized at work (if I need to), but something about getting everything scheduled and done at home is so much more challenging!

    Hi! I’ve been a reader of your blog for a while, I LOVE your blog! We live in Seattle too, and we have a dog that gets mistaken for a shiba on occasion!
    Our dog just got fleas too, and he hasn’t played with other dogs in a long time. Our vet said he could just get them from outside! We got comboguard for him to get rid of his current fleas and to prevent any future ones. It’s a pill he takes once a month. Also we bought Fleabusters powder which we sprinkled into the carpets and it’s supposed to kill any fleas in the house. We only saw two fleas on him so it wasn’t a full blown infestation either, but it makes me feel better that they won’t be in the house!

      Aw, thank you Aly! Oh that’s too funny – what kind of dog do you have?

      Ugh, fleas are so gross. Frontline worked great this time, I think what I was seeing was dying fleas on him (apparently if you can see them crawling around at the top of the fur they are dying, gross!) I went a little overboard and ordered a bunch of stuff from Amazon Prime but now that it’s here, we don’t have any fleas, haha!

    Two things: my parents live in a town called Rigby. Also, I, too, am horrible at organization. I teach online and in person, have two small children and take care of all things household. You’d think I would have it figured out by now, but I fear it’s getting worse.

      Okay, that’s pretty cool, Rigby, Idaho right? When I was thinking about names, I googled some of them to see how common they were/what else they would be and I remember seeing a town named Rigby!

      That sounds like a lot to keep organized – I can’t imagine keeping kids organized on top of everything else!

    Oh no Rigby! Girlfriend, I feel ya. All this big girl stuff can be a bit much sometimes. Just grab yourself a delish drink and kick back and know that you’ll be golden in the end…and don’t pull out your hair because it’s nice and that hurts.

    Ugh, my dog Ru has flea dermatitis, which means she breaks out into horrible rashes when she gets bitten by even a few fleas. Unfortunately in the Bay Area we have a major flea problem, so it’s a constant battle throughout summer flea season. If you’re down to shell out the money, we use Trifexis, a prescription flea med (Comfortis is good too), and it makes an ENORMOUS difference. I don’t know how people even use the topical stuff, this is so much more effective. Your pup doesn’t need to even have flea dermatitis in order for you to get a prescription, if you’re interested :)

      Oh poor Ru, that sounds awful! We will definitely look into Trifexis and Comfortis! He’s using topical Frontline and it actually worked pretty darn quick!
