Monogrammed For The Marshes

This weekend my daughters boyfriend asked me if I could do him a favor...
I thought, awww...
he wants me to cook something special,
maybe he needs me to help him pick something out for my daughter?

Whatever could it be?

"Naw",  he said.
"I  just need ya to do some monogramming" 

I thought...
Maybe a cute tote bag for Britt?
 He is such a sweety,
 could it be something for his mom?

Something for the OTHER FEMALE in his life!

Louisiana is known as the 'Sportsmans Paradise' and hunting and fishing are taken very seriously.

He wanted me to monogram his lab Bella's name on her duck hunting vest. 

Yes, I told you..
They take it very seriously here...
he wanted Bella to be "special" and have her name in hunters orange for everyone to see!
(They will be in a duck blind down in the marshes, not sure how many people will actually see it.)

It actually turned out really cute...
if you want to call a camo dog vest cute.

I am sure once they get to the duck blind,
 all the other guys will want their poochies to have  monogrammed vest.

Heres to
Bella, Nick & all the other hunters,
May you have a
happy, safe & successful duck hunting season.
