I spent the weekend with my family and friends honoring the Veterans that have made our lives and freedom possible. 

Here are some pictures of my weekend and a video of a friend's puppy playing tug of war with Guiness' leash. 
Soooo cute!

100th Post!

I have to say it - I am proud of myself.

This is officially my 100th post. I have started blogs before but after a few posts, I just lost interest and didn't keep on posting!

I am so excited to continue on posting and make it to 200 posts! 

Hope you all are having a wonderful day and are ready for Fabulous Friday!

I heard this on Glee last night and it rings SO true:

I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason
bringing something we must learn
well I don't know if I believe that's true
but I know that I'm who I am today because I knew you

This past weekend, Rob and I visited a dear friend of our's with some other friends! 
We spent the weekend at the pool, in the hot tub, hanging out, visiting Williamsburg, VA and having a grand old time! 

Here are some pictures from the weekend!

Such a fun and fabulous weekend!

Movie Reviews

Rob and I have been to a few movies over the past couple months. 
I thought I would take a few minutes to let you know what I thought.

I absolutely loved this movie. It was definitely NOT a movie to see with your parents, or your children as it is quite raunchy. But it just made me laugh out loud so many times. It was the perfect movie to just sit and enjoy. All of the actors and actresses were just amazing and played their parts perfectly. 

Thor is another movie we have seen over the last few weeks. I liked the action of the movie and frankly Thor is just a sexy sexy man! However, it left a lot to be desired at the end. Rob said it very well, "I felt like the movie ended at the same place it started." Rob also said that they are making a lot of these Marvel movies in hopes of setting up a new Avengers Series. Well ... I would probably still see those series because I love Marvel ... but I would only give this movie 1 thumbs up. If you aren't in love with action movies or super heroes ... wait and rent it {again - simply my opinion}.

Have you seen any new movies recently that you would recommend?

Please share!

Sooooo ... I got my hairs cut this weekend. 
I am not sure that I like how she styled it (pictured here) so I am excited to try to style it on my own. 

What do you think?

This is what naptime looks like at my house.
Time on the couch with Guiness on my legs. 

I know I share way too many pictures of this puppy ... but I hope you are not tired of him yet!

Usually Guiness is a very well behaved little dog. 
The areas where he could improve in his behavior would be when food is around, or when he gets bored and we are not home - he likes to find things to destroy. 

I was able to record him begging today. I usually do not let him go on this long but I wanted to show you how silly his whining is! O.M.G. he is so cute!

2 months

It has now been two months since we lost Maveric. 

Sometimes I still have these moments where I just honestly cannot believe that we are going through this. I must say that it got worse before it started to get better for me. When we first heard the news there was a part of me that felt like I had known it was too good to be true all along. I just went into my shell and stayed there for weeks. 

Then when I started to try to get back to life, I realized how hard it really was going to be. I have just been so angry at everything and didn't know how to get back to the happy person I used to be.

I am happy to say that although each day is a challenge still, I have started to get back to my old joyful self. I will never forget that I lost my baby, but I am starting to look forward to the month where we can talk about trying again. I didn't ever think I would get here when I was feeling all that fresh pain from losing Maveric ... but I am almost there. 

One of my dearest friends shared a really great quote with me today. He was watching Private Practice last night and shared this: 

A woman said to the other Dr something like “Look at you, your beautiful, a Dr, talented… God’s got to challenge you with something every once in a while.”  Ok – that’s a bad re-quote but I cannot find the exact quote online.  Anyway, the point is people have to get challenged with obstacles in our lives from time to time.  For two reasons, 1) because even though obstacles can be painful, we learn and grow because of them and 2) so we can appreciate all of the good times and things we are blessed by having in our lives.

My dear friend is right. I am getting there. I try to remember each day how grateful for all of the amazing things in my life (especially my husband, family and friends). It just is so much harder to do now than it ever was in the past. 

So here are some pictures to help me remember all of the amazing things I am thankful for in the midst of all this pain.

Thank you all for your support and love in the last 2 months. We truly appreciate your understanding.

Wordless(ish) Wednesday

Oh that face!

That is me all the way up there! 40+ feet high!

Hope you all have an amazing Wednesday!

Today was a tough day for me. 

So I have been reminding myself of this:

And I realize that although I still hurt, I am very lucky in so many other ways. 

Specifically for the amazing, loving and supportive husband I have by my side.
