Girls Trip

I've been meaning to brag blog about my most recent Las Vegas trip!  Me and 3 of my dearest girlfriends had a girls trip - no boys allowed (except for at Magic Mike, of course...lol).

We had a busy schedule of events...and we thought we were still much younger than we are ;)

Here's a quick snapshot of our events:

Exploring Vegas on Friday!

Enjoying some cocktails at Magic Mike Live

Posing with the Flamingos on the way to the pool Saturday - we had a concert to rest up for that night! 

Sunday - on the way out to the Grand Canyon

We're the 4 best friends that anyone could have ;)

Sunday Funday!
That's about all I can share - What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!!!

It was so much fun to get away - just the girls.  We have a couple nights away here and there, but this was the first time we flew somewhere and spent 4 days away.  I'm so lucky to have such awesome friends that can and want to travel.  Counting down the days until we do it again!!


AND...CF doesn't stop when you travel...Cayston came along for the Vegas fun too!! I didn't bring my vest but had my Aerobika on hand.

I think my lungs have finally recovered from all the cigarette smoke in Vegas.  I know it's not the ideal place for a person with CF, but you got to live a little!  I actually enjoyed vesting when I came home...felt like it cleaned out all the crap I inhaled.  And, I of course slept in a few days when I got home to catch up and let my body recover.

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…

Our First Decade

I'm soooooo very late in posting this :(

Whoa!  I've been married a decade! Holy cow!  We decided to celebrate in Puerto Rico with our friends Matt and Brandy which were also celebrating their 10th anniversary.  Here are some pics from our trip (at the end of July):




Being that we've reached 10 years.  I was thinking about how many amazing things we've been able to do in that time.  I'm so blessed to have such a great, supportive husband.  We love traveling and love our lives at home with our bulldogs.  Here are some of my favorite memories from our last 10 years together.
After just about a month of marriage, we traveled to North Dakota to visit Will's family.  Sadly his grandfather was terminally ill, so Will wanted to visit him one last time and I got the privilege of meeting him.  Even with his illness he knew I was "the new one".  I sat and held his hand for a while...it was so sweet.  We took a drive out to where the family farm used to be...what…

CF Updates

Greetings friends!

I had the pleasure of going to my quarterly CF appointment on Tuesday.  It was originally scheduled for 11/15 but being that my sinus funk is still lingering around, I wanted to move it up a bit.  (the original funk started here)

I finished my round of Cipro on 10/29.  And still had a head full of congestion, sore throat and ears. Bummer.  I thought I was starting to feel better for a split second, but it didn't last.  Thankfully, my lungs were still feeling good :)  We were at our cabin in WV that weekend and I skipped my vest and HTS, but thankfully didn't suffer.

So, I headed in to the doc on Tuesday.  My PFTs are holding stable so that makes me happy!  More on that in a minute.  During my exam, she could see there was still fluid in my ears along with my red throat.  Plus my face was super puffy and my eyes felt as if they were going to pop out of my head.

So, the plan of attack is this:

1) Take Levaquin 750mg for 14 days
2) Get back on my Claritin dail…
