We took a day trip to Cartersville and I'm so glad we did! We happened upon a beautiful restaurant in an over 150 year old building called Maine Street Coastal Cuisine. Everything was delicious from the mixed drinks to the homemade bread but the Caesar salad with anchovies (my fave) and the monkfish sautΓ©ed in a buerre blanc sauce with charred corn were my absolute favorite. To those who've never had monkfish, it has a texture similar to lobster and it is delicious! I encourage my Atlanta friends to take a day trip up to Cartersville sometime! It was our first time and we will definitely be back! #cartersvillega #hiddengem #mainestreet #yummy #foodies #latergram #daytrip @robertmtcoggins

Happy birthday to my beautiful sister Katie Grace! There's nothing quite like the bond of two sisters. It is untouchable. She's been my best friend since day one. Thank you for letting me tag along with you through all these years and for being the best big sister ever ❀️ #langelink #bff #birthdaygirl #throwbackpics #bigsister #bondedforlife @spoodles25

The face you make when mommy and daddy come home with a massive bag of treats and samples of organic dog food and raw food! The Good Dog Shoppe is AMAZING y'all! #happypup #spoiledshelterdog #muttsofinstagram #rawfood #goodboy 🐾❀️🐾

More amazing stuff. The massive sea turtle was my favorite. Tellus is obviously not just for kids πŸ˜‚ #kidatheart #tellus @robertmtcoggins

More amazing gems and minerals! We also got to "dig" for our own fossils and pan for gemstones! @robertmtcoggins

The Weinman Mineral Gallery at Tellus was amazing! I could wander around all day looking at these beautiful gems and minerals. The fluorescent minerals were so cool. My favorites were the amazing petrified wood. The earth's beauty in all its glory! #amazed #beauty #tellus @robertmtcoggins

Behold: the biggest beetle I've ever seen! He's hanging out in the rocks by our front porch this morning, presumably to escape the rain! #bugsightingoftheday #naturelover

Someone being oh-so "helpful" while I make spaghetti! (He's secretly hoping I drop something for him to eat!) #mylittlehelper #muttsofinstagram #dogmom #happyFriday #spaghettinight

One of Wes's favorite spots, the guest bedroom. Here, he has a great view of the neighborhood where he will wait for the mailman/delivery man and bark at him to let him know who's boss. What a great guard dog! πŸ˜‚#happyFriday #muttsofinstagram #spoiledshelterdog #dogmom #muttsofinstagram #favespot #gaurddog #boss

Hi. I'm Wes. I refuse to go potty because it rained and I don't like my paws to get wet. Mom finally dragged me out into the grass but I just stared at her until she gave up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜«#stubborn #dogmom #rainyday #spoiledshelterdog #muttsofinstagram #adoptdontshop

Today our precious Court turns six! I don't know where the time has gone. I will never forget the moment he was born, it was one of the most beautiful moments of my life. This kid means the world to me. I'm so proud of the smart, sweet, thoughtful kid he is growing up to be. I can't wait to continue to watch him grow β€οΈπŸŽ‚ Here are some of my favorite pictures of our Court man from the past six wonderful years! #proudaunt #sixthbirthday @spoodles25 @robertmtcoggins @jdhopper1957 @hopperdonald

Happy Father's Day to the best dog dad I know. He's currently out on a toy/bone run since we brought Wes to my parent's house and he was getting antsy. He loves that dog so much and he's so good to him! Robert will most definitely be an amazing father someday. #fathersday #dogdad #muttsofinstagram #favoritepicture #myboys @robertmtcoggins

Happy Father's Day to my daddy! The man who used to spend hours playing games with us, telling us stories, and making us laugh until our bellies hurt. To the man he is today, who treats me to lunch and spends at least a half an hour talking on the phone with me everyday. He still makes me laugh a deep belly laugh and he makes every little thing I worry about seem so small, he reminds me I am strong enough to take on the world.
He's taught me a lot about the importance of staying positive during tough times and how laughter and family is what life is really all about. He's my survivor, my hero, and my rock. Happy Father's Day, dad.

To everyone out there missing their fathers today, my heart goes out to you. I'm sending love and hugs to you all, your daddy is with you in your heart always ❀️#fathersday #myhero #fathersinheaven #herosday #dadsrule

I love how, even when I'm not wearing my rings, I still look super married! I also love that my husband refused to let me help him do yard work. He told me to go take a bath and relax instead! πŸ‘πŸΌβ€οΈ #newlyweds #goingon8months #thoughtoftheday #hesakeeper @robertmtcoggins

The many adorable faces of Wes 😍I think he's pretty darned cute all the time but I think he's at his most handsome when he's "naked"! #stud #collarless #dogmom #backyardtime #tennisballaddict #muttsofinstagram #adoptdontshop

Terrible traffic, a headache, and my hubby working late leads to dinner in bed (for both me and Wes!) while we watch the movie Now and Then! This movie is one of my all time faves and it never fails to make me smile #NowandThen #throwback #muttsofinstagram #spoiledshelterdog #dogmom

Baked redfish (caught by Robert's boss in Baker's Bay!) with andouille, corn, and baby potatoes served with an ice cold beer. What a perfect way to start the weekend! #redfish #bakersbay #yummy #readyfortheweekend @robertmtcoggins thank you for this delicious meal!
