ME Time

This weekend revolved around me.  Will decided to head on a quick trip for the weekend and I had some previous engagements that I didn't want to back out of, so it was just me & Sophie for the weekend.  Although, I miss my hubby dearly while he's away, ME-Time is also great!

I got to sleep in without feeling guilty (Will gets up early most days) and I got to lay around in my PJs without getting funny looks at noon.  Fortunately, Sophie is a sleeper too!  She will sleep 12+ hours & not even stir or put her paws/face over the side of the bed trying to wake me.  I couldn't imagine having a dog that wakes up before the sun wanting to go out - yuck!  I chose the bulldog breed for a reason :)   Laziness is fine by me!

On Saturday, I played Bunco for the first time...its a pretty cool game.  Sounds kind of lame just rolling dice, but I had a blast.  I was getting stressed out trying to add the points, roll faster...if you've ever played, you understand.  Hopefully, I'll get to play again soon!  That was the big event of the weekend, so I relaxed and took Sophie for a few walks (they are fairly short as she gets out of breath before me!).

Another perk of ME-Time, I get to watch chick-flicks without all the sighs, moans & critiquing.  I can cry without being made fun of too!  Some of my viewings were:  The Last Song, Dear John (yes, I love Nicholas Sparks), Confessions of a Shopaholic and Twilight: New Moon.  After watching New Moon for the 100th time, I'm beginning to think I'm turning to Team Jacob - he's just too cute!  I watched some Beverly Hills 90210 re-runs & this new show called One Born Every Minute.  Its a documentary on a Labor & Delivery Unit in Ohio - pretty cool. 

Will got home on Sunday afternoon and I decided to make a good dinner.  I made my first lasagna and it turned out great, if I do say so myself.  I've made them a hundred times growing up and helping my mom in the kitchen, but this was the first time it was all me.  Then, I used my mixer I got for Christmas and baked a cake - yet, another first!  I'm no Suzy Homemaker, so I was mighty proud.  Here's a pic of the cake - I used the giant cupcake mold that some friends got me:

Its a yellow cake with 1/2 chocolate icing (that's what Will likes) and 1/2 vanilla icing (that's what I like).  We were so stuffed from dinner last night, we didn't even have a piece.  So, tonight - look out cake, here I come!  I plan on enjoying a slice as I watch The Bachelor.

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.
