To say the last few weeks have been a whirlwind is an understatement.
We are now home and there truly is no place like it.
I'm not photogenic, but I wanted you to see that I'm still "me".:) My winker is still not winking correctly and my smile is wonky, but thank the Lord I'm here.
Last week we were able to travel with my husband to Georgia. The 10+ hour drive included a wicked rain storm complete with tornado warnings. Even so, I'm so glad my sweetie asked us to join him.
Thanks to my trusty phone and cute little navigators we were able to locate Starbucks, TJ Maxx, the American Girl store and Pottery Barn Kids.
Katie has put this room on her Wish List.:)
She also loves this kitchen. So darling. Love that she's not too grown-up for it yet.
I feel the same way, Cutie!
My parents even drove 8 hours to join us! We were thrilled that they were willing to make the long trip. Even more so, when Ruby started coughing... terribly.
She sounded so horrible that the girls and I ventured out at 6:30 AM to locate a vet. After saying a quick prayer, God sent us to the sweetest clinic. Turns out Ruby is in heart failure, has a collapsed trachea (common in Pugs) and may be experiencing early kidney failure. My Mom being there was a godsend. We were all a mess.
Thankfully, Ruby survived the trip home and is now on some wonderful medications. Praying she stays with us as long as she can. She's one in a million and we adore her.
Meanwhile, my husband was at work. The business trip included passes to the Petit Le Mans at the Atlanta Speedway! After taking such care of me throughout my surgery he certainly deserved some fun.:) My sweetie and my Dad had the best time. They were VIPs for the day and even had a personal chef. Nice. Heard McDreamy was racing that day, too.;)
It made me so happy to see them happy!
See why I love this girl so much? Love her smushy face, curly tail and sweet disposition.
Last week also included a trip to my surgeon. Had a needle poked in my neck- twice. The numbness in my face/neck didn't cover these areas. Wheeee!
He told me that my facial weakness is more than most people have but that he truly believed everything would get back to normal- in time. So thankful!
After my appointment we hit the mall and also had a fabulous lunch al fresco. Happy days are here again- just around the corner.:)
This weekend was the BIG ONE. The one that I've been waiting for for 5 months. I've been bursting with a SECRET!
But first, we had to go shooting. Yes, I even had a turn.;)
WE HAD TICKETS TO SEE JUSTIN BIEBER! My sweet sister, Lindsay, had the creative idea of using a puzzle to tell the girls. So, I mixed up the letters to- "tonight", "Bieber", and then "concert". It was so fun to watch their "lightbulbs" turn on!
Bieber Fever.:) We've got it! (my husband thinks he's a good kid and puts up with all the craziness. Love you, Sweetie!)
The concert was Rad. Sick. Like Nothing I've Ever Seen Before. My husband even said it was awesome.
I've asked for tickets for my birthday. Don't hate. Just help me find some in Little Rock, Memphis or Tulsa. Pretty Please.:)
The girls and I so want to go again. It's like the ultimate aerobic workout- with fireworks and confetti. Crazy, I tell you!
Katie keeps saying she can't believe she got to see Justin. She screamed, cried, and sang. Me- I almost had to leave due to all the lights and sound. I was starting to hyperventilate! Then, I recovered and had the best time.
He comes in flying with wings! (below pic.) The beginning of the show is intense, in a great way. Don't want to ruin it for you, just in case you are going.:)
