Triple success

I had my third IV infusion treatment for my Crohn’s Disease today. It was the final of my loading doses and it went surprisingly well. The awesome nurse, Cindy, warmed up my arm and was able to find a vein on the first try — a miracle for my crappy veins! Then I got home…

Coolest cookie jar ever!

Tonight our friend Jori came over to visit and help us groom Paisley. As a fellow Boston Terrier obsessive, we delight in surprising Jori with anything Boston related. But this time, she came with a surprise for us! It’s this beautiful, turquoise, Boston-shaped cookie jar! We love it!!!! Today’s #OneGoodThing was a much needed visit…

Paisley’s great day

Freshening the pixie

Today’s #OneGoodThing was was getting a fresh, short haircut from my wonderful stylist, Matthew, at Dolce Vita Salon!
