Yoga Pants, why have you forsaken me?

Have you noticed how more and more popular it is to wear yoga pants or workout gear just because? You don't even have to be going to or from the gym and its perfectly acceptable.  This makes me happy.  I love nothing more than wearing my stretchy yoga pants...well, I really like my big baggy sweats too!

You will find me changing out of my gym clothes after working out, just to put on another workout type of outfit.  On the really hot days in the summer, I'll put on my Nike shorts (which also have the joyous elastic waist too)!  It's great!

I very rarely have to actually put myself together any more.  The joys of being a stay-at-home bulldog mom!  And when we go to our cabin in WV, there are days I don't even put on makeup! Ahhh, the life!

However, I have run into a problem with my beloved yoga pants....

Those suckers are deceiving!! You have no idea if you have gained or lost weight...they always fit!! Yes this is good, but its also very bad.  I discovered that my selection of non-yoga pants don't fit like they used to...and its not cause I've shrunk.  Not cool!

I've been fooled into thinking that I can chow down on my candy and still have my clothes fit.  Damnit!!  It's false.  Don't be fooled by these wolves in sheep clothing.

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…
