Bully's new jacket

The time is here again. Tick season. It seems they let us be for Christmas, but are creepily crawling around outside again. We did not go full on shave for the Bull, like last time, but rather, intended a lion cut. It turned out to look like he's wearing a bolero.

He is more eager than ever to go for neighborhood walks. He shows off his new jacket to the local  pooches. I can tell they're jealous.

Our Tick prevention:
Andvantix, Tick collar
Adams Spray in the house
Granules in the ground
Yard spray
Yard Maintenance
and regular sweeping
and regular tick inspection

and we want another dog. HA!

From Pinterest: Sassy Water

My fridge full of canned sass
I came across this pin from a friend, and was intrigued by the pic and the mention of "maintaining a flat belly". Naturally, I was intrugued because I like this kind of help. I am lover of breads and things that produce a fat belly, against my better judgement. I'm actually eating pizza right this very minute (but I added kale to it, points for that?)

Sassy water. I really just like the name and the blue mason jar in the pic. It's super refreshing and I suppose it's good to have around if you're detoxing. Definatey good at lunch, but may cause a belly ache in the am due to the ginger. The hubbs said he could drink a gallon of it after a run.

I for got to mention that I enjoy hearing the hubbs say things like "sassy water." I've infected his vernacular so much that most men would be embarrassed. Not him, though. He's comfortable with  sass.

It's easier to make a pitcher and pour into nice grab & go glasses like I did.

Here is a printable recipe from A Sweet Simple Life Blog.

Our Carolina Vacation

Good friends sitting in a big booth.
 We took a roadtrip to Greensboro, NC to visit Shawn's family and our friends. We took the time to lunch, supper, and toast to some good times. I checked out Blu Martini on Elm St. (Not the Blue Martini chains found in Florida), and invited everyone out for a cocktail.

Of Course, I made the crowd request a breakdance from you know who.

 But not until he had the floor wiped. Diva.
Most importantly, we spent quality time with Shawn's mom. Country park and Battleground park are the best places in Greensboro, and we went there everyday. Th air is crisp and Bully feels at home.
  And we had some Shawn & Leilani time, mostly on the road. 
On the dance floor
and in Savannah.

 It went by fast.
