Time for Bosco to do the dishes and other Saturday things

Hey guys!


This morning we had to take Bosco to the vet since he won’t stop biting his paws constantly due to his allergies. (He especially likes to do this a lot at 2 or 3 AM, which always makes for a fun night’s sleep!). After almost 2 hours and a $500 bill, the vet said to give him Benadryl 2 to 3 times a day and to wash his paws daily with blue Dawn dish detergent. There is a fairly new allergy medication for dogs that seemed to work for Bosco a while ago, but the vet said it is back ordered and she didn’t want to put him on any other type of medication because his liver levels were high. Maybe we will just have Bosco work off his vet bill by washing the dishes every night for us – he will be multitasking (taking care of his paws and chores all at the same time!). 🙂


After Bosco’s appt. at the vet, I went to get my nails done, while Pat went for a run.

We had lunch at home and then headed to Point Pleasant Boardwalk to walk around for a while. It was packed! You would have thought it was still the middle of the summer with the amount of people there.



We hit up the arcade for a bit as well. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I won all 3 games of Skee-Ball (and by quite a bit .. TOOT TOOT!!). 🙂

After the boardwalk, we stopped home to let Bosco out and hang out with him for a while.

The mail came while we were come and I was happy to see this baby had arrived.


I let Pat know he will now have a new nighly job of rubbing this on my feet. It smells so delicious!!!

Next up, we decided to hit up the driving range. Pat wants to start to play golf more (more meaning ever because we both never play) so we have went to the range a few weekends lately. Today I decided to just watch (and play photographer).




The range was right by a Walmart and we stopped there so I could look for a candle that I wanted. A girl from my work recently got a candle there that smells AMAZING and I NEEDED to get one for myself.


I am happy to say they had it (and I got the last one!). 🙂

Oh, I also spotted this on the way out and wanted to try them out since I have never seen this flavor before. I will report back with a review shortly.



We stopped at the food store on the way home and grilled up some filet mignon (for Bosco), steak (for Pat), and chicken (for me).



What did you do today?

Anything exciting going on tomorrow?

I am not sure what we are doing tomorrow (other than at 10 PM, at which time we will be watching Revenge).


I am so happy that Revenge is back tomorrow with a new season!


Have a great night! 🙂

Bosco needs your suggestions

Hey guys!

Happy Tuesday and more importantly, Happy Fall!


As Halloween is quickly approaching, Bosco needs some suggestions for this year’s Halloween costume.  He has previously been a bee, lion, skunk, football player, monkey, and alligator.  Last night I tried to find pictures of all his previous costumes but I think many are saved on our old computer (and I was too lazy to look for them).

another picture of my boy in his jeans  .. I love this picture of him!


As for this year, I really don’t have any ideas of what Bosco should wear.  What do YOU think Bosco should be for Halloween??

Bosco will give all suggestions serious consideration. 🙂

Weekend Snapshots


I LOVE these! (GREAT purchase to have made right before my appt. right??!!)

mmmm, coffee Oreo and cupcake ice cream with hot fudge and cake crunch


movies – I was not even sure what this movie was about (Pat wanted to see it), but I loved it. It was very funny and also quite sad at times, and I would definitely recommend it.

Bath & Body Works Haul

Hey guys,

After work today, I headed over to Bath & Body Works.  I wanted to go look at the candles that were 2 for $22, and of course left the store with more than just the candles.

Here is a look at what I got:


Blackberry Bramble Tea 3-Wick Candle 


Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin 3-Wick Candle


Cozy Vanilla Cream Deep Cleansing Hand Soap 


Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Deep Cleansing Hand Soap 


Pumpkin Latte & Toasted Marshmallow Triple Moisture Body Cream

All of these things smell AMAZING!    The candles were on sale 2 for $22, the Deep Cleansing Hand Soap was 6 for $24, and the Triple Moisture Body Cream was Buy 2, Get 1 Free. I also had a coupon for 20% off of everything. I think it is safe to say our house (and hands!) are going to be smelling like Fall for quite some time over here. 🙂

I even let Bosco smell everything when I got home and received Shih Tzu approval.



Have a great night, guys! 🙂

October 23rd it is

Hey guys,

Well, I finally did it – I made an appt. to see the dentist on October 23.  I am embarrassed to say this, but it will be my first time at the dentist in about 10 years. EEKK!!!!  My sister is a dental hygienist and she has cleaned my teeth many times over the last few years, but I haven’t been to an actual dentist appt. in years.  While I do take great care of my teeth, I also have a huge sweet tooth and love candy, so I am not looking forward to it.  I know it needs to happen though.





Well, I am off to go brush my teeth and floss. 🙂


Have you ever went years without going to the dentist?   If not, please just lie to me and make me feel better. 🙂

Firstly I just want to thank each and every one of my followers. Especially the people that I now consider friends within this amazing little community we have here! It’s nice to feel apart of something and feel appreciated for what you do. I didn’t realise when I started this blog in May that I would have the reaction I’ve had. It started out as something to do while I was going through a rough time, now it’s something I look forward to doing.

Some of you may know that a couple of weeks ago, I said that when I reached 200 followers that i would do a giveaway. I’ve been racking my brain to try and think of a product that everyone would like… But then I thought, why not let them choose? As benefits is a big brand that everyone loves with amazing quality items, I thought i…
