Happy Birthday to me!

My 28th birthday was last week, so Will decided to take me to Vegas to celebrate.  Actually, we got concert tickets to Tim McGraw which just happened to be the day after my birthday, so I claimed the trip as my birthday trip. 
Cheers - on our flight to Vegas!
We flew out Sunday afternoon and made it to Vegas in time to relax a bit, play some craps and get dressed for dinner.  We went to SW Steakhouse at the Wynn - YUMMY!  I'd say the best meal of the trip.  Will had HUGE crab legs and I had a scrumptious steak plus a fabulous dessert - red velvet cake :)


Then, on Monday we got to sleep in a bit and Will surprised me with a massage, manicure & pedicure!  Talk about spoiled.  I love massages but they make me worthless.  Somehow I mustered up the strength to go shopping at Caesars.  Will spoiled me a bit more by letting me go crazy shopping!

Tuesday was relaxing, we got a cabana and sat by the pool & our friends Amanda and Arron came to hang out.  It was a coincidence that we were there at the same time!


Tuesday night, Amanda & Arron joined us for dinner and the Tim McGraw concert.  Will surprise me and got Amanda and I meet and greet passes for Tim!! Yay! No cameras or autographs allowed :(  They took a pic of us with him and are going to post it on Facebook - needless to say, I'm stalking the page for when they post it & will share!

Concert

We flew back home on Wednesday morning & of course with the time change, it practically took all day to get home.  I was completely worthless on Thursday at work - my mind was still in Vegas.  I had a great trip and am so thankful to have been able to celebrate with Will and some great friends!!

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…

Hello?

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.

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…
