Mother - Daughter Time

Since we moved in December, I haven't seen my mom near as much as I used to (granted we only live an hour away).  We would go to lunch several times a week, go to dinner or she would cook us dinner (even better!), we would go to the movies and just talk.  I would say she truly is a best friend.  Now I feel a little guilty for leaving since all she has now is my little brother.  And 16 year old boys are not that fond of their mothers. 

So, I was so excited when I got to spend a little extra time with her last night!  Now, we don't have the same tastes in clothes, but we are able to relate to CAbi (Carol Anderson by Invitation).  If you haven't heard of it - its fabulous!! Its like having a Pampered Chef party but with clothes!  Check out the website here.  Its just great, they have a new line twice a year and we went to our consultants house for a preview of the Spring line that just came out.

Anyway, we had a blast - talking clothes, drinking wine and just being together.  We tried on clothes, made a wishlist of what we wanted and I scheduled my CAbi party for the spring!  Then, on the way back to her house, we picked up a pizza & breadsticks to snack on when we got home.  We watched tv (and of course mom fell asleep), but it was nice just hanging out.  I even stayed the night so I got a little extra time.

The woman may drive me nuts from time to time, but she is the best there is!! So glad to have her :)  Here's a pic of us at the Great Strides walk last year - Love You Mom!!!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!

You can check out my list of recipients here.

To recap my 34th year on this are some pictures of my favorite moments.
