Oatmeal Homemade Dog Treats & Pictures from West Virginia

Hello. Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you already know that I was in West Virginia over the holiday weekend, and then I was hit by the plague as soon as we arrived home early Tuesday morning (early as in 1:00am) – not even joking…

Oh, and if you don’t follow me on Twitter and Facebook, what the heck are ya waiting for?! 😉 Get. On. It. 

Anywaaaays, today is Day 3 of what I’ve deemed Mandy’s Solitary Confinement and the good news is, I am finally starting to feel like a human being again.  The bad news is, it took 1.5 boxes of Kleenex, 1 bag of Ricola cough drops, 1 carton of Florida’s finest orange juice, 2 liters of Gatorade, a few Green Smoothies, lots of T.L.C. from Bryan (along with avoidance), and close to 40 hours of sleep to get there.  Hey, I don’t fall often, but when I fall, I fall hard.

Simple Stuffed Pepper


My quinoa kick continues…

It’s been a very busy week for me – I’ve been trying to stay busy while Bryan is gone (this is my solution for making the time go by faster).  And yes, y’all will be happy to know that I have accomplished four out of five things on my Things I want to Accomplish list:

Reading: I’m currently reading Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.  Sadly, I started this book awhile ago and never have finished it, so I made it a point to finish it a.s.a.p!

Has anybody else read this book? Thoughts???

Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

It’s been a “ruff” week in our household…

It started Tuesday night when Buddy began projectile vomiting…

(If you hate vomit stories, now is the time to stop reading…but don’t worry…the story has a happy ending.  And who doesn’t love a good happy ending?) 


Bryan came home Tuesday night to a large pile of vomit on the couch – he was kind enough to send me a picture.

Thanks Bryan.
