Meet Cowboy!

Posted by 2 years ago 2 Comments 1610 views

Those were my attempts at a selfie with him after yesterday’s 9-hour solo drive.  I was just ecstatic to be out of the car and getting doggy kisses! This morning I hit a local crossFit affiliate before starting the day. I’m planning on going again tomorrow. It’s a great gym! After breakfast, we headed to […]

Breakfast for Dinner vs. Fast Food

Posted by 1 year ago 4 Comments 2695 views

Hey, guys! Yesterday I traveled up to good old Northeastern PA to visit Mom. Two weeks ago she took a spill, broke her wrist (and possibly a rib) and gave herself quite the goose egg! Here she is with Cowboy. He’s been keeping her company while my niece is at camp. We spent yesterday catching up […]

There’s Nothing a Little Scream and a Doughnut Can’t Fix

Today was a bit of a roller coaster ride. It started out fantastic! I hit the ground running at 7 a.m. baking up a storm. I bought a big bag of kale last week so I could make Whole Wheat Chocolate-Kale Banana Muffins and I had the best helper. He doesn’t have the same attention span as […]

I don’t even know where to start. The past  four days have been a blur. Friday was my last day in Ohio. Cowboy (and my mom) had to take their service dog test and they passed with flying colors! Everyone was ecstatic. Judy kept saying, “Cowboy’s my service dog. He’s my service dog.”  It was so cute. […]

I’m in the home stretch, people — the home stretch — one more day of training and then our test. If Cowboy passes he’ll get his harness and service dog papers. And I’ll be driving home home one happy girl. I’ve been posting a lot on IG and Facebook. It’s funny, things I would have saved for […]

And it was on sale buy 1 get 1 for $14! Why was I at the mall in Ohio, you ask? Well, it was time to train the dogs in some real-life situations and Cowboy did smashing! I’ve been sharing a few photos on IG through the day if you’re interested in following along in […]

Doing Nothing and Everything

I had all intentions of posting a traditional Sensational Sunday yesterday until the 10-year-old decided to be goofy at the park and fell. At first I thought it was broken but we got away with just a sprain. Anywho … I had a pretty laid-back weekend. After an awesome partner workout on Saturday morning, a group of […]
