A MAJOR Catch up...Brace yourselfs...it's a long one!

So every day when I get to work I immediately look to see which one of your blogs has been updated. It's like opening a present...or getting a card in the mail that you know has a check in it :) (usually from sweet Grandparents who feel sorry for us)...yes, I love YOUR blogs THAT much! I don't know if you feel the same way about the blogs you read, but if so, forgive me for being a slacker lately. Teddy chewed my chord to download my pictures so I finally made a trip to Target yesterday to buy one!

So here is the last three weeks in a nut shell...

I lightly mentioned that Teddy had to be RUSHED to the hospital three weeks ago and spent three days getting his tiny little tummy pumped, had charcoal shoved down his throat and had to be hooked up to an IV at all times (except when they would let me come to walk him for 10 minutes).

Why you may ask?? Because I decided to switch handbags right before I walked out the door and left a ziploc bag full of 10 advil in the bag I left behind for him to snack on. I won't go into details because it will bore you, but holy moly...I know he is just a dog, but SERIOUSLY I felt like a family member was dying!

The morning I took these pictures I was about to lose it. He didn't seem to be getting any better (yes, he's smiling, but he would have to lay down every two minutes because he was so tired, and that is NOT my Teddy). However, he did make a full recovery, and I've been loving on him even more now!

On To Miami!

I went down to Miami for family vacation, and we had the best time! You could stick me in the middle of nowhere with my sister, however, and I would love it no matter what just because I was with her! I am so blessed that my sister really is my best friend. We stayed up talking every night until who knows when, laughed harder than ever, ate lots of good food and relaxed the whole week...it was wonderful!! Oh...and not to mention, my children-the ones I would steal today and never give back if she would let me!

I was so excited to go here on our trip...(it's DASH from Kourtney and Khloe (Kardashian) Take Miami-the show...just in case you didn't know)

BUT was MAJORLY disappointed in the store. There was literally NOTHING in that store. I think it's more of a set for their show than an actual store, but it was fun either way to go.

And then there was this little adventure...

An airboat ride through the Everglades National Forest...GORGEOUS!

He came back with a bloody hand just so you know...

After two hours on that boat whipping through those murky, crocodile infested waters we made our way to the beach.

I can't wait to go back!!

On to graduation...speed round...

There's Blake walking across the stage :) I was like a proud parent haha

PS-Here is one of the dresses I got at the Van Jean sale I was telling you about here that I bought for next to nothing, and I've already worn it twice!

His entire family came down...even his precious cousins and Aunt and Uncle...they were so sweet to make the trip down (with their two baby twins) on their free weekend!! Thank you Natalie and Jonathan!!
And last, but certainly not least...

Blake was offered a new job!! I am so proud of him and all of his hard work! He is going to be a Dental Sales Consultant with Henry Schein. Here he is signing his papers to accept the job (which will be here in Columbia)

Funny...when I took this picture he said, "Megan...you're not allowed to blog about this"...what he doesn't know won't hurt him hahaha. Hopefully he won't be reading this post :)
