Busy, Busy, Busy!

Things have been so crazy lately! Work has been the busiest since I have worked there..lots of changes are taking place and it will be good when everything is in place! My cute parents are home from St. George. I can't wait to celebrate my cute Mom's birthday when we go over to their house on Sunday. It will be fun to get back in the habit of family dinner's at Mom's on Sundays. I think they will always goes to St. George now for the winter, but it is a good move for them. My Mom said my Dad's arthritis was so good there. He was actually able to go hiking with Mark! It's good for them to get away from things too and just enjoy themselves!

My cute Sadie has been really struggling when she breathes so we finally took her in and the doctor seems to think she has Laryngeal Paralysis...we are trying different meds for the moment, I just hate to have her go through anything! At her age I just want her to enjoy life! And Daisy is having a heck of time with that darn arm since her surgery. The arthritis sure has settled in and no drugs are helping her...hopefully something will help soon!

I was truly blessed this past week and got to see my 2 favorite singers! Bon Jovi Tuesday night with one of my besties...Shalon was a way fun date and it is a night we will never forget. Great seats, amazing concert...awesome night! Then Saturday night I went and saw my cute John Allred before he moves to LA with my cute friends Amy and Alex and we had a blast..such a great concert with 3 amazing opening bands! I am so glad I have such a great hubby that let's me get out and play once in awhile:)

Spring is in the air! I think we hit 65 today which was perfect! I could handle that year round! Tomorrow is Mom's bday, Saturday is my cute Father in laws bday..oh and I am so excited..we are getting Eddie for the weekend! That is my friend Paul's yellow lab he just adopted. Eddie is 12 and you would never guess it! I am excited for him to come play with my babies!

I don't know whether I am coming or going! Tonight Gracie and I painted toenails! She picked bright red for me and pink with purple glitter for her...we are feeling more spring now:) I hope everyone is great! Love you!!

Happy Birthday Millie, Daisy & Chance!!

Today was the big #11 for Millie and Daisy and if we still had our sweet Chance he would be 13! We only had Chance for about a year. We got him as a puppy and he had grand mal seizures that were so bad he died. He was such a great dog and I can't wait to see him again! In 2000 my Mom took me shopping and we ran into a Petsmart in Ogden and there was a shelter there that had a few puppies in a cage so my Mom had me hold one and the next thing I knew we were on our way home with Millie and Daisy who just happen to be born the same day Chance was! They have been such a great addition to our family! I can't believe they are 11! I have no concept of time the older I get! I love you guys!!

Tonight was Luke's work party at Maddox which was fabulous. Fun to see the crew he works with and talk with them! So proud of him for the hard work he does do to help provide for our family. It sounds like this year will continue to be slow due to the economy but I am hoping 2012 will be great for Vulcraft and it's employees!

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and I got Gracie a cute outfit for school...have I mentioned how I took for granted being a kid, the only girl, and spoiled!!!! If I could go back I would treasure every second of my growing up years that I rushed away so fast! Happy St. Patrick's everyone!!!

Home & Garden Show & Happy Endings!

The Home and Garden Show is officially over....Phew!!! Tons of work are put into this event and then it is all over in 2 huge days. It was a huge success and I feel honored to be a part of such an amazing team that put it all together! Before I know it we will be getting ready to start on it again for next year.

This year the Cache Humane Society was there and they brought in animals to be adopted which was also a great success. I fell in love with a beautiful 11 year old lab named Eddie and I just found out our cute Q92 DJ is adopting him tomorrow! I am so excited!! I am going to have to go visit him! I can't believe in 2 short days I am attached like I am to him, but that tells you just how special he is! I LOVE happy endings!

We spent most of the night cleaning up the event so I was so ready to fall asleep and lay low today which I did. Luke took Gracie to Disney on Ice while I took it easy and then went to dinner with Mark:) I have such a great time with him. We talked for hours. He has always been one of my bestest friends and I am so lucky to be his sister! I am already looking forward to our next game night!

The weather has been gorgeous and I am loving the time change so that it stays lighter later. That means I get to walk the dogs after work now! Wahoo! I hope everyone has a great week and a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Love to all!!!

I just tucked Gracie in and decided to lay in bed with her and just hold her tonight. My heart is so full. I love that little girl more than anything. I started crying telling her how much I love her and just what she means to me and she was so cute. She wiped away my tears and put her hands on my cheeks and just said I love you Mom, you are my best friend. Those words touched me so deep. I can't express how amazing it feels to actually have that little girl here, in my arms. Luke and I waited so long to get that little miracle here and I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for blessing my life with such a beautiful, strong, amazing little spirit whom I learn from everyday. I have been so worried about my cute Sadie lately...her breathing hasn't been great and she is getting older and Gracie is so sweet..she just pats my back or puts her arm around me and tells me Sadie is going to be just fine, and it is amazing what comfort that small gesture brings me. I would give ANYTHING to be able to have one more, but know that it isn't possible in this life and I am soooo truly blessed to have my little Gracie. Luke has been sick so I went to the doctor with him yesterday and he has a kidney stone that is causing him to bleed like crazy and today Gracie asked me if we could put a bandaid on Daddy and I told her you can't put a bandaid where Daddy hurts so she started telling me Daddy's pee pee has an do you not start laughing at that...oh that little girl truly is the light of my life. I LOVE YOU GRACIE BUG!!!!

Good News!

So I went to the eye doctor today...the most amazing eye doctor. He spent lots of time with me and said that the bleeding and leakage that was behind my eyes from when I had Gracie has stopped completely which is so fabulous! I had massive bleeding on the brain and lots of the blood and fluid from that leaked behind my eyes and we never knew if it would go away and it has finally! I am so excited! My vision hadn't changed much either. He said my vision has stayed almost the same for the past 8 years which is really rare for a diabetic and wants me to go see a cornea specialist in Idaho Falls for Lasik! Best news ever! Just a great day and now I am off to go spend the night with some of my bestest friends! Wahoo! Hope everyone is doing great!
