Happy Anniversary to Us!

It's hard to believe, but Will and I are celebrating our 9th anniversary today!  Am I really old enough to have been married that long?  Guess, that's what happens when you get married at 23.

Looking back over the past 9 years, I definitely didn't know what to expect.  I was marrying a 25 year old guy who loved golf and worked hard!  Not much has changed as far as that goes.  I figured we both be working, maybe have a dog or two, and just living life.  I never thought I'd have the joys of being a stay-at-home bulldog mom.  I never thought we would have a place in West Virginia where we are currently building a cabin!  I never thought we would have as many adventures as we do.  I'm one lucky gal :)

I'm beyond blessed to have Will.  He is kind, loving, beyond giving, and brilliant. He makes me want to be a better person, that's for sure.   I don't know anyone who gives so much of themselves to their family and career.

He definitely puts up with a lot from me.  I tend to slack in the cooking dinner department (I much rather eat out!), I'll forget to have beer in the fridge (or ice cream), I get behind on the laundry and he runs out of underwear,  I can be kind of messy from time to time, I never seem to answer my phone,  and I never seem to completely shut a drawer.   I know I may nag some, or be overly forgetful, but somehow he still loves me!

These 9 years have been the best and I can't wait for the next 50!  So William, when you read this...know that I am so thankful to have you as my partner in life.  I can't imagine living this crazy life with anyone else.  I love you more than you will ever know.  I'm so grateful for all you do to give me such a blessed love.  You are the BEST!! Love you!!

After the wedding - going to gamble :)

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…
