And I'm off...

To Dallas.  Kind of hard to believe its been 5 months since I've been out there.  I have a few things I'm looking forward to on my travels. 

1) Sour Patch Kids - this girl doesn't fly without them.  During Lent I had to and it was horrible.  I've become a bit fearful of the big bird in the sky, so Kids help calm my fears and keep me my mind, mouth and hands busy.

2) The Hampton Inn bed - this is truly heaven on earth.  Something about crawling into the the fluffy bed after a long day is just amazing.  Will and I keep talking that we are going to make our bed this great, but we still haven't.  Although, I'm afraid if I had it at home I'd never get out of bed! 

3) Pei Wei - LOVE this restaurant.  I've you've never been, you must find one and go!  We don't have one anywhere near us, so I must travel to eat this fabulous food.  Its owned by PF Changs, so the food is pretty much the same, just a bit more fast food.  And when your traveling along, its nice and easy :)

4) Target - can't go to the Big D without hitting up Target which happens to be very close to my hotel.  I tend to spend way to much money here and come home with an exploding suitcase...oops!  We never had one by us, until we moved back in December, but its still something to do and pass time while I'm away.

5) Reading - I get lots of reading time while I'm away.  I enjoy reading on the plane and I usually read while I'm in my hotel at night.  Since the time zone is different, all my shows are end earlier, so I get some extra time to read - yay!  I've picked up Emily Giffin's book Baby Proof and if I finish that, I'll head to Target and pick up another one to read on the way home.

So, while I'm away from the hubby and my Sophie girl - its nice to have some "me" time and do whatever I want!  If I want to eat some Sour Patch Kids in bed - that's what I do.  Or if I want to stay up late reading in bed with the light on, I won't be disturbing anyone.  And when I return from my Target trip(s), I won't have anyone making funny faces at all my bags of goodies :)

So, lookout Dallas - here I come!!!!

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…

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…


I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.

I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.
