Jersey and The Big Apple

Last week was a fun week visiting my family in New Jersey.  The parentals had a trip so I got to come up and lend my babysitting skills.  Although it isn't really babysitting when my sisters are 17 and 12.  Regardless, got lots of girl time with my little sisters, which is one of my favorite things!

We had dinner out Sunday, then Callie (12) and I went to the movies on Monday after school (Divergent is AWESOME!!!).  Just the normal busy stuff - and I definitely don't miss getting up early!  They got a new puppy just a few weeks ago, so I got to be on puppy duty...which I love!!

Meet sweet Berlin.  She's a beautiful Great Dane and unbelievably sweet and smart.  She gets along well with their other Great Dane and Shih Tzu....so cute and clumsy :)


Winnie (big Great Dane), Berlin, and Zoe (the Shih Tzu)
Then on Thursday, my stepmom and I went into New York City for the day!! Soooo fun!  We went to see Live with Kelly and Michael, shopped and ate at Carnegie Deli.

On set!
Me and Sarah - so excited!!
Gelman! 
Mel B. and Michael - Kelly was out all week :(

Ending the show
TEMPTATION AT ITS FINEST!!  Carnegie Deli
Our lunch - open face pastrami rueben - yumm-o!!
I caved :(
I'm bummed that I gave in and ate some sweets (which I gave up for Lent)...but man, was it worth it! AH-MAZING!!!  I'm claiming it was strawberries and cheese...nothing sweet there ;)

Finished up the week in Jersey with a massage - yes!! And then headed home on Saturday morning.  I did bring home a souvenir, unfortunately it wasn't one that I wanted - A COLD!!!  I've been coughing and sneezing and blowing my nose.  Thankfully, I'm feeling SOOO much better.  But, now the darn pollen in South Carolina is in full force so now I'm sneezing because of that.  I'm over 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.
