I believe that is how the saying goes.  That or ‘What happens in Vegas ends up on YouTube.’ Not to worry folks; we left our mark. Tom and I arrived on Thursday afternoon and checked into the Mirage.  We had a lovely volcano-view room, so that was fun.  We had a burger and milkshake for dinner our first night.  We went to LVB (Las Vegas Burger).  It was a great introduction to the price of […]

So you want the bright light city to set your soul, set your soul on fire, eh? Here is my little guide to surviving with POTS. Water Pack it, or plan to bring a small fortune to stay hydrated.  The other option is to learn to like tap water.  Bottles of water on average were anywhere between $3.50 to $6.  These are for 20 oz bottles, not even big bottles.  Some hotels had vending machines with bottled […]

All summer I saw signs about Aunt J’s Farmer Market.  I remember this because Carter has called my sister-in-law, Tom’s sister, Aunt J since he could talk.  I never made it to the market throughout the summer.  Timing, illness, planning, whatever the reason, it just didn’t come together.  I was scrolling on Facebook and saw an ad about a Small Business Saturday and a Holiday Marketplace being held at Aunt J’s Farmer’s Market.  I was […]

It’s night two of finals, folks.  We’re here.  We’ve made it all this way.  It’s the final three and by the end of these final two hours we will have a new mirrorball champion.  Spoiler alert: Sharna doesn’t win.  Maybe next season they won’t give her a basketball player. Ok, I’m not bitter.  Here we go. What I like about the finale: finding out the winner and celebrating. What I hate about the finale: 1 […]

Dancing with the Stars Recaps / Uncategorized

It’s the first night of Finals.  Tonight will include a judge’s challenge which is a redemption dance chosen by a judge from one of their dances earlier this season that did not receive high scores.  After that is the ever popular freestyle round, which is always incredible.  Not to mention, a freestyle round including choreography from Mark and Lindsay.  The only thing that would make it better would be if Sharna was choreographing a routine.  […]

Drew & Emma- Tango This is a fun Scottish dance […]

Sparkles & Rust / Uncategorized

Our little business, Sparkles & Rust is growing up.  We are officially in a store, and not just any store.  It’s an amazing and highly rated vintage-style boutique.  I have loved this store for a while and I’m so excited that she loves my products too. I was deciding between two stores, but this one was obviously more expensive in all ways, but also that much busier and higher quality.  As I was choosing Tom and […]

I have my happy little heart monitor back again.  It’s been two years since I spruced up my cleavage with wires.  This time it’s only for a few days though, not a month.  No big deal.  I also had an echocardiogram this morning.  It has such potential to be a great nap.  The lights are low and it’s mostly quiet except for the occasional blood whooshing noises.  Right when you are ready to sleep the […]

It’s been a bit since I’ve done some updating of health and life and random whatnot.  I figured today is as good a day as any.  So first off, it’s discounted candy day.  I got up, threw on my skeleton leggings and ran down to Walmart to get some 50% off candy.  While I was looking through the carts of candy, a lady held up a bag and the following conversation took place: Lady: Will this […]

*Sorry I’m a teency bit late.  Last night I was busy watching the movie Mark of the Vampire from 1935.  Don’t worry, I caught up today.* It’s spooktacular.  It’s all treat and no trick.  It’s bootastic.  It’s all the Halloween puns you can imagine.  Daddy Tom warns us at the beginning not to try to play a drinking game with Halloween puns as we will surely die.  Carrie Ann’s hair is blue.  Bruno is wearing […]
