Good Friends and Good Times.....

Our friends came to visit this week from Steamboat Springs, Colorado. They have the most adorable little boy named Tucker! We went out to dinner last night and had a great time! We came back to our place and Tucker and Jack had the best time running around! They had us all cracking up!

Jack is Back...

I took Jack to his one week check up after his ordeal with the bees, and he is not bleeding in his abdomen anymore!! Yeah!! He can now run and jump and doesn't need to take anymore medicine!! He is back to his "normal" self!

It's friday!!!!

I am so glad it is friday! This week has been hard with alot of challenges. Actually I think that the past two weeks have been challenging but I am so glad that I have such a great husband and we can get through anything because we are united. The other two people in my life that have given me great wisdom in dealing with challenging situations has been my friend Julie and my mom. I am so thankful for the great group of friends that I have too! What person can you get through anything with? Who can you go to help you through hard times? Give honor to whom honor is due!

So this weekend has been a very emotional weekend! We (Jack, Luciano, & I) were at Dog Beach in Del Mar on Saturday when all of a sudden Jack collapsed at my feet. We rushed him to our vet who then sent us to a veterinary hospital. Well long story short, Jack is allergic to bees and went into anaphylactic shock. We just picked him up today and he is finally resting comfortably at home. I think from now on we are going to make Jack wear doggie booties :) The picture above was taken during visiting hours at the hospital, he was a bit drugged up on pain meds in this picture. So needless to say I now hate bees!!

Jack and his bunny friend

Okay after only a few days and 4 hours here is the video of our crazy pooch! This is one time I wish I were a dog whisperer!

Why no posts recently you ask?

Well I have been trying to upload the cutest, well I think it is the cutest video of our dog, but it hasn't been working! GRRRRRRRRR! Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can load a video onto blogspot quicker than just clicking the video link while in the "posting section" of the blog? Please help!

Before and After...Changes

I love makeover shows...whether it's extreme home makeover, what not to wear, the biggest loser, I enjoy the process of something changing. It doesn't even have to be the best change, I just like seeing things change. How many of you like change? I don't really enjoy unexpected change, but I guess it is change nonetheless. What is one thing you wish you could change?

(The first picture was taken in January 2005 at "Luciano's" in Michigan before we were married. The second picture was taken in September 2008 at "Andiamo's" in Michigan.)
