The BIG 3-0

It was like I blinked and all of a sudden I'm graduated from college, married and 30!  Wow.  Its been a whirlwind, but definitely a fun ride.  I turned 30 on Thursday and much to my dismay, I couldn't stop the dreaded number from approaching.

30 has always been that age in my head that means you are "really" grown up.  I guess I finally have to consider myself an adult (but, I'm really just a big kid).  I remember being a little kid thinking people that are 30 ARE OLD!! They work and have kids and are no fun.  However, now that I am 30, there is no way that 30 is old! Its the new 20 :)  I'm still fun (so I think), I don't have kids (by choice) and live a great life.  There is still SO MUCH ahead of me.  I've decided to adopt the motto "thirty, flirty and fabulous"!!  Some of you may recognize this a line from the movie "13 Going on 30" - LOL.  Will doesn't like the "flirty" part - hehe.

But, in CF world - 30 is a senior citizen!!  I've approached the decade of the dreaded average life expectancy.  But, I look at it as a challenge.  My goal is to make that life expectancy increase!  I'm planning to be here until I'm old and gray.

Back to happier thoughts.  I want to brag a bit on my wonderful husband.  He completely blew me away with gorgeous diamond earrings and a surprise party to ring in my 30th.  I had a wonderful evening with some of my closest friends...I definitely won't be forgetting that party any time soon.

My awesome cake - it was DELICIOUS!!!!
Me and my girls :)
Me and the hubs....don't mind the frizzy hair - it was raining :(

Also, this past week, my baby brother graduated high school...guess he really isn't a baby anymore.  It was a very proud moment for me as a big sister.  Being 11 years older then him, its like he's part mine too - I like to think I helped mold him just a bit.  I'm so proud that he graduated with honors and will be headed off to the University of South Carolina in the fall.  Go Gamecocks!!

Taylor and me
So, this weekend was a weekend of milestones.  It is definitely a time to reflect on how blessed I am...I have my family, my friends, my precious bulldogs and even my health.  So here's to 30 more!!!

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…


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.

To recap my 34th year on this are some pictures of my favorite moments.
