Europe Trip

Will and I just had the pleasure of a 12 day trip to Europe...and to say it was fantastic is an understatement.  Our journey began with a quick stop in London.  Our hotel was right by Westminster Abbey and Big Ben.  So we did lots of walking that day exploring the city.

Westminster Abbey
Big Ben
Buckingham Palace 
We couldn't get in the gates :(  The Queen must have forgot I was coming to town.

Then, we headed to Dublin to meet up with some friends.  Here are some of the highlights:

Going to the Boston College vs GA Tech Football game...it was a bit rainy.
Dana is hard to spell

Yep - met Chris Soules (only you Bachelor fans would recognize him :))  He was super sweet!


Malahide Castle


The Irish Sea

Will got stuck with some of the ladies bags ;)
I loved the Sheep!

Stuffing my face...as usual!
Last dinner in Dublin

Will and I headed back to London for another day before our flight back to the US.  Love the view from our hotel room.


I cannot wait to get back to Ireland. The sites were beautiful, people so kind and welcoming.  I loved it!!  Next time, gonna hit the west coast...can't wait!!!

For those wondering...no I did not take my vest, but I did bring my new Aerobika.  I wasn't perfect and didn't use it every day but I tried.  There was tons of walking so I got some exercise in at least!

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…
