Snow Storm & Ice Storm & Earthquakes - Oh My!!

I almost rather have lions & tigers & bears then the craziness we have had.  I won't dwell on the weather, but we've had some interesting stuff the past weeks from snow and ice to earthquakes.  We lost power for 3 days due to the ice and that was no fun.  In the midst of the darkness on Valentine's night, our house was shaking!!  What a crazy event to be a part of.  Being my first earthquake, I thought the world was

Sadly, the ice did a lot of damage to our quaint downtown :(

Just sitting around without power :/

On the 15th, Will and I attended the Bully Ball in Atlanta.  It was a fundraiser for the Georgia English Bulldog Rescue, which of course we were beyond excited about!  We got to get dressed up and hang out with bulldogs :)  It was a great event and we can't wait to go back again!

Cute decorations
Our dessert! 

Last week was mostly uneventful, which is good if you ask me.  But Saturday was busy!  Will and I ran in a 5K!! My second for the year, but the first one for Will and I together.  I'm so proud of him going out there and running with me!  He did great!  According to my Map My Run App, I ran 3.39 miles in 35:06.  So, I definitely approve in my time!!  January I averaged a pace of 11:03 per mile and this time was 10:21 per mile.  I am happy about that!!
Will about to cross the finish line! 

That evening, we went to Will's fraternity 10 year reunion.  Had a great time catching up with some old friends.  Sadly, I didn't get a picture of us :(

Other than that, just busy with life.  Still doing my vest and HTS :)

And last, if anyone still wants to make purchases in the Shop for CF event, time is running out!  Closing the parties on Feb. 27th.

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.
