A bit of motivation

Do you ever get tired of your clothes?  I imagine most girls go through this at some point.  I just stand in my closet (which is full of stuff) and just don't have anything to wear.  I find I wear the same old stuff every day and I'm getting annoyed with it.  Most days I'm in my PJs til lunch time (the luxury of working from home).  When I finally get dressed, its usually just some bummy shorts and a tee (if I have no where to go other than the grocery store or tanning bed).  Even when I do have somewhere to go, my attire barely improves...I put on khakis/jean shorts and a rather plain cotton shirt.  I look put together but its nothing fabulous.  I'm sick of it! 

So, I am vowing not to buy anymore of the same crap I have.  I want to add some skirts, sundresses, cute shorts and nicer tops to my attire for this summer!  I demand a change!  However, this means I have to go spend some money.  I'll suck it up and do it because I need to.  Some gals just always look so cute and put together - I want to be one of them :)  I want to add some style to my life.  So my fashionista friends - help a girl out!

My sudden annoyance with the status quo has provided some motivation to work on the house too.  We moved in December and I still haven't finished some rooms.  My living room is missing a picture (or 2) to go above the couch as well as an accent chair.  Then, my kitchen has a big blank wall that I need to fill with something...but not sure what.  I'll at least feel a bit more satisfied when I get these main rooms done.  Then, I can worry about the master bedroom and guestroom, plus some blank walls in the hallway.  I have motivation - now I just need to figure out what the heck I want and buy it!

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.

Pros:
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 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Pupdate

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.
