Happy Halloween!!

I'll admit, Halloween isn't one of my favorite holidays.  Mostly because of the dressing up - its not one of my favorite things to do.  Now, as a kid, I loved it!  My mom loves to tell me about how I loved this bunny costume I had - and I wore it everyday...literally.  I'd play outside with it on (in the hot Florida heat), and pretty much wore it all the time.  I know there is a picture of me somewhere in that stupid bunny costume with all the other kids in the neighborhood wearing their shorts and t-shirts.  Yes, I was that odd child.

Perhaps that scarred me in some crazy way, because now I just assume be the party pooper and not dress up.  However, I overcame my dislike this year and went to a Halloween party at a friends house.  This was my first one since college.  Of course I waited until the night before the party to find something to wear, same for Will.  I'll add that he hates dressing up even more than me.  He went easy, and was a fisherman and I figured I might as well go all out slutty and be a "Beer Stein Beauty", so the costume title said.   Maybe another reason I don't like dressing up is because I'm not creative enough to come up with a really cool idea.

So, here are a few pics from the evening:



Having a little fun!

The West Virginia Ninja & Nin-jay-da!!  You can see we ended up at the Waffle House!
 I don't enjoy dressing up, but I have no hesitation to torture my pups and make them dress up!

Last night I even wore a Pumpkin T-shirt for when the trick-or-treaters came! Unfortunately, we didn't get near the number I expected, so we are overwhelmed with candy.  The good thing is, I only buy the candy that Will and I like so we have some good stuff left over :)  The bad news is, I have no will-power and will eat every last piece of 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.
