Bachelorette Recap

Yes, I still watch The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.  I guess it's one of my guilty pleasures - naw, I really don't feel that guilty watching 😉.  But, if you haven't tuned in this season, you need to!!!  Don't worry, you only missed 1 episode, so you can catch up easily.  Becca is absolutely stunning and seems like a pretty cool gal.

I love the show in general, but I REALLY love the fact that there is a cutie by the name of Colton Underwood this season. See!!!!

Colton is a former pro football player turned philanthropist!  And the coolest part is that his charity supports Cystic Fibrosis!!!  It's the Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation...check it out here.  He was inspired to start this foundation because his adorably cute little cousin, Harper, has CF.  His Foundation has teamed up with Afflovest to provide 50 vests to those CFers that need one.  They are doing one per state!! From the website, I can see that they've done 3 so far with a 4th about to be completed.  So there is plenty of opportunity if you need one...you can fill out an application here.

So, whether Becca choses Colton or not, I don't know....but he's a winner in my book!!!  I was super excited to see some light shining on the CF community through Colton.  Thanks so much for what you are doing, Colton!! 


On another note, I'm only 6 days away from my 35th birthday! Woohoo!!  So that leaves just 6 more days of donating left.  This project has been so much fun...I don't want to stop!  Thanks to those that have given suggestions - I appreciate it.  You can still give me suggestions for these last 6 days!

You can check out all of the recipients here.

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.

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…

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…
