Sasha Update

Last week Sasha saw her ophthalmologist (Yes, cats have ophthalmologists, go figure!) and we have a game plan. It’s not a cheap game plan, it actually looks like she may give Vincent’s vet bill a run for its money.

So now instead of two drops into her eye, she has to endure my putting a quarter inch line of ointment into her eye. Once the new drops show up, she’ll have to endure that.  She is going to go see her regular vet this week for a blood panel to see if she will be a candidate for surgery.

So until then, she is just being her regularly mopey self.

Crafty Monday – T – Tunics!

I don’t have any pictures just yet but I have been working on some basic t-tunics for wearing around camp.  Since we are going into the winter months, I’ve made 6 out of some super soft fleece.  Since I want Kress and I to be able to both wear them, I am making them to his size. As long as they are not too long, they should fit me just fint.

I am not sure if am going to do anything more to them once I am done but pictures should be up soon!

Adore Me Review

Adore Me is a lingerie subscription program that I was recently introduced to from a friend.

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. I am a rather curvy girl and most online stores do not really cater to my curves. However, I wanted to give it a shot and see what happened.  I was within an inch of the size guidelines so what was the worst that could happen, right?

So after poking around on the website, I fell in love with Gisele and have to have it. With the gift code I received, I was able to get a bit of a discount.

The program is pretty straightforward.  If you do not want a monthly subscription, you can just pay as you go with free shipping and unlimited exchanges.

The VIP Program also comes with free shipping and unlimited exchanged as well as quite a few additional benefits.

  • $10 off any set, any time
  • Your first style is only $24.95
  • Every 6th set is free
  • Access to VIP only sales and sets
  • No obligation to buy and no membership fees

You have the option to skip each month and if you forget, you will be charged $39.95 in store credit to use at any point. If you decide you don’t want it though, you can request a refund.

For now, I have decided to join the VIP program and see how this works out.  I’ll review again in a couple months and see if it still works for me.

Check it out!

Wedding Dress Adventure!

The wedding dress shopping adventure was SO MUCH fun!

My girls and I had an appointment with Balla Saison in Austin, Texas. I was so nervous and scared all at the same time. I really had no idea what to expect.

As soon as we met Jessica, our bridal consultant, it was off to the races!  She gave us these huge rings with purple ribbon on them that we then go around and places on the hangers of the dresses. We found quite a few we liked and there was one that I wasn’t even all the way out of the dressing room before I was met with a chorus of ‘No’.

Unfortunately none of the dresses I was hoping to try on were in stock but Jessica tried her best to get me dresses that she thought I would like.  There was one dress she brought in that I was no sure about at all but since I had already told her I was willing to have an open mind, I tried it on.

I fell in love.  It is so not what I thought I was looking for but I love it!

Jessica put a veil on me but my girls took that off and put a large flower instead. Since we are looking at doing a spanish theme, that really completed the picture. So now I have to wait 6 – 8 weeks for my dress to come in and then we start with the measurements. In the meantime, I now have to find The Shoes to go with it.

Wish me luck!

Wordless Wednesday – Cupcake and Wine


Posted by on September 17, 2014 in Wordless Wednesday


Poor Sasha :(

Sasha’s eye has been bothering her and I wasn’t sure if it was allergies but once gunk started appearing, off to the vet she went.

Turns out she has some kind of infection so she must now wear the cone of shame.

The most heart-breaking/amusing time is right after we give her the eye drops.  She will run off into the corner and sit like this for hours.

Poor Sasha.  She has another Dr’s visit today so here is hoping we have some good news.
