We have a name for my house around these parts, and it’s The McBrawley Home for Wayward Wiener Dogs. Along with our two chickens and one majestic cat, Sean and I are constantly wrangling our two dachshunds: Noodle and Lucy. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Sometimes they bark at the UPS man or chase the chickens around the yard and whatnot, but other times I’ll catch them curled up together on the couch or posing for pictures perfectly (ahem, I’m looking at you Lucy) and my heart just melts. Those are the moments that I love to treat them to something delicious.

Just like my yia yia still to this day makes me her signature Greek soup recipe when I’m home and in need of something extra special and crave worthy, I like to treat my two pups to something that’s premium, hearty and made with love. Kitchen-inspired Milo’s Kitchen® dog treats are made with real chicken as the number one ingredient, they’re high in protein and free of artificial flavors —you better believe these wiener dogs went crazy for them! But I wanted to help share our love of the kitchen and take the #TreatingTuesday experience to the next level, so I decided to dress up a simple mason jar in which to store some delicious chicken meatball treats in a way that blends perfectly with my kitchen decor and is pretty enough to keep on the counter. It’s a great way to take treating and bonding in the kitchen to a new, DIY level. Giving Noodle and Lucy treats is one of my favorite things to do – it makes all of us happy. I especially love to treat them in the kitchen, which is the heart of our home and where memories are made.

Now I just have to explain to Lucy that she can’t actually eat at the table with us every day…

With January come and gone, I still find myself focused on my health and fitness goals. I’ve got my trainer and my workout regime on lock, but I am still working on my healthy eating goals — so imagine my excitement when Burt’s Bees reached out to share the news of their new Protein Shakes! I decided to combine my favorite fruit (mango) with the vanilla powder for a delicious, filling smoothie that keeps me energized and feelin’ strong after a good workout.

our his & hers bedroom refresh with Parachute

Until we're ready for a full renovation, we did a gender neutral bedroom refresh with @parachutehome! We chose coal grey linen bedding with a white linen quilt and cashmere throw for layered his and hers style. See the full recap on Jojotastic.com #MyParachuteHome #ad

As I’m quickly learning, cohabitation is all about compromise. One point of contention as of late has been our bedding situation. You see, I’m a fan of the more-is-more approach when it comes to pillows and blankets. Sean, on the other hand, is a warm sleeper and would be quite content with a single pillow. Lucky for us, Parachute reached out to partner on a bedroom refresh! We perused their gorgeous textiles together and came up with a bedding plan that suites both of our needs and tastes.

In light of last week’s news (more on that here), I have some work to do in the house before Sean can officially move in. Our top priority is making sure there’s enough room for both of us to live in #mytinybungalow with all of our stuff until we’re able to do a full-on bedroom renovation (like adding a closet). The first step is a good old-fashioned closet clean-out, so I partnered with Glad to share my best tips and tricks for staying organized in a closet-less home!

Recipe // glazed grapefruit Dutch baby (perfect for Christmas morning!)

For this post I received products to review from Greenpan. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.

This will be my first year in #mytinybungalow for Christmas and I want to start some new traditions. A luxurious, delicious breakfast is definitely on my list. Greenpan was kind enough to send a set of their ceramic non-stick pans and I knew this was the perfect opportunity to test them out. I’ve always wanted to make a Dutch baby and simply didn’t realize just how easy it can be. We added another holiday staple, citrus, for an easy, delicious breakfast that’s great for sharing.
