Christmas Memories

I just wanted to share some of my favorite photos from Christmas.  As you can see lots of fun was had, and lots of food was consumed :)  After all, I plan my life around what my next meal will be.

First stop, New Jersey!
The family after church on Christmas Eve
Just a Christmas Eve Cayston treatment
The beautiful tree on Christmas morning!
The aftermath! LOL
Me and my sisters screaming about getting Justin Bieber concert tickets!  
Christmas Dinner!

Next stop, Pittsburgh!
So happy to love on my wonderful Pap!!
Wings, Suds & Spuds....best wings and curly fries EVER...trust me,
I've tried a million others and none even come close!
Another Pittsburgh staple, Beto's Pizza!
I sure had missed it! YUMMMM
Sarris Candies - they make the best chocolate covered pretzels!  I think that's how I won Will's heart in college ;)
This whole castle is made from candy/chocolate.
And while at Sarris, you must grab some ice cream too :)

I hate the all my favorite places to eat are in Pittsburgh, but that's probably a good thing cause I would never stop eating!! The great thing about Christmas travel is, calories don't count!!  Although my pants were a bit snugger when I got home...it was all worth it :)

Since we flew, I didn't take my vest, but I had my Cayston and HTS.  Didn't get much exercise unless you count shoveling food in my face!

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…
