Just Us & Our Dogs

Hey everyone and welcome to my blog, my name is Keanna, the voice behind ‘just us and our dogs.’ I’m 23 years old and recently moved to Tampa, Florida with my husband and our three German Shepherds, Floyd, Izzy and Gunner. Throughout the past 5 years, we’ve had tons of ups and definitely our fair share of downs. We always say that at the end of the day it’s, “just us and our dogs.” So that has been my inspiration for this blog.

To get to know us more, we just got married on October 20th in Benton Harbor, Michigan but we have been together for 5 years before that. We started dating when I was a senior in high school but knew of each other a few years before that.

All my life I have been into sports. In high school, I ran cross country and track. When I met Leonard I was a little skinny mini who ate ramen noodles on the daily (now I look at bread and gain 5lbs). He taught me all about lifting weights, gaining muscle and it’s been a passion we do together ever since. I started out 5 years ago weighing 130lbs and I’ve put on 20lbs of muscle. Him on the other hand, is going on his 10th year of working out! He started out at the age of 16 weighing 120lbs and has gained 70lbs of muscle!!! It’s truly remarkable what you can do to transform your body with determination, patience, and discipline. You’ll see lots of information on fitness, nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle on my blog!

We are both night shift nurses here in Tampa. Leonard has been a nurse for 5 years and is currently killing it as an ICU nurse. I just got a job in the ER that is a level one trauma center! I’m so excited! My goal is to work in the ER for a year, get the training to become a trauma nurse and eventually work in the trauma bay! We hope to get a few years of experience in these specialities so we can do travel nursing before having children.

Big update on the house! Jerri Lynn fell through but we think God was looking out for us and had a different plan in store. We should hopefully be closing on our first home February 13th but since the last house fell through we don’t want to get our hopes up. So details and pictures to come once it’s all finalized!

In our free time, we love working out, cooking, being foodies, taking long naps and spending time with our dogs. My goal for this blog is to show a little insight into our lives, provide tons of helpful tips and tricks regarding fitness and nutrition, give all my favorite recipes, take you on a tour through our new home and bring you along for the ride!

So join us along in the adventure! I’m excited to share our life through “just us and our dogs.”

Meet Floyd, Izzy and Gunner!

It all started out with good ‘ol Floyd– We got Floyd when we first started dating. He’s almost 5 years old but he acts like a grumpy old man. He LOVES toys, playing catch, looking out the window and he can’t resist a good look through the trash. 

Then came Izzy– We got her when I moved back from school. It was love at first sight when Floyd met Izzy. 

She will be 4 this year! She LOVES bones, knows how to open every door in the house, can break out of her kennel and can eat a whole loaf of bread in one sitting.

Then along came the Flizzies– Twenty to be exact! Charlie, Hoops, Scarlet, Bella, Kobe, Rex, Memphis, Ryder, Jax, Remi, Silas, Ace, Hudson, Bain, Odin, Jackie, Maylee, Nala, Nommel, and Gunner. 

But little Gunner stole our heart. So we added him to the pack 🙂

Now it’s the five of us, dysfunction and all, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
