Birthday Time

I guess its been so long since I blogged since I've been having a wonderful time celebrating my birthday!  It was June 6th, but I tend to claim a whole week (at least) to celebrate - I think everyone should :)

My birthday started with a trip to Hilton Head Island with the hubby!  It had been a while since just he and I went on a trip, so we took off for the weekend!  We relaxed at the pool, took a few walks on the beach, did some shopping, ate some fabulous food, got massages, and had a great time!


After our weekend away, Will had LASIK surgery and all went well.  So I played nurse again for a few days with all his eye drops.  Its a rather amazing thing, within 24 hours he had 20/20 vision - wow!

My birthday was on a Wednesday and we went to Greenwood to have dinner with my mom and stepdad and then on Thursday we went over to Matt and Brandy's house to cookout with some more of our friends.

On Friday, I went off to New Jersey to visit my dad, stepmom and sisters!  Its hard to believe but it has been close to 15 years since I actually got to celebrate my birthday with them.  Living so far away does that, so I was overjoyed to celebrate with them.  I went to my sister Corinne's dance recital, which was great.  I think she got her moves from me (not!).  We hung out at their pool and just got to hang out.  My dad has a slight addition to Dunkin Donuts coffee, so I joined him on a few runs (bonus being that they have a Baskin Robbins attached).  And to my surprise, I got my all time favorite ice cream - Orange Sherbert on a Sugar Cone - yummy!  It was like I was 5 all over again - see!!
Best Ice Cream EVER!!!
Then, on Sunday the fam went into New York City for the day - woohoo!  We walked around Time Square hitting some of the tourist hot spots then went to see Jersey Boys.  I have been dying to see this show for a long time now (I LOVE musicals!! I want to see them all!).  Needless to say, I was stoked and loved every second of the show.  As we were walking out, I told dad that I wanted to see it again, right now!
Me and Daddy before Jersey Boys!
I came home on Tuesday after a crazy travel day - my handle broke on my carry on suitcase and I had flight delays...just a mess, but I got home safely (that's all that mattered to me)!  So, I've been recouping this past week, catching up on cleaning and laundry and all that in between!

Its hard to believe that I'm 29 - I still feel like I'm still a teenager!  Oh well - guess I should be happy I still get carded when I buy a beer :)  Here's to making my last year of my 20s the best yet!!

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…
