Macy's Birthday and NYE!

We can't believe that Macy turned 4 years old on the 26th of December! (28 years old in dog years!) It is amazing how fast the times goes! We really love our fur baby and couldn't imagine life without her. "Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole" this quote is so very true!

We got her some special gifts for her birthday! How can you not spoil a sweet little dog?

Macy is sitting with her loot! A birthday bone, a new sweater and also a new blanket for the basement! She also got a new scarf, a new dog tag ( that needs to be engraved) for her collar and some treats for Christmas! So she made out pretty well around the holidays and her birthday!

We spent the entire day doing things Macy loves, we went for a ride, she got to have some treats, we rubbed her belly :) she got to have a new chew and she got to spend time laying in the sun! All things she loves! I would say she is spoiled :)

Happy Birthday sweet Macy we love you so much and couldn't be happier or more blessed to have you in our lives!

For New Years we didn't really have any plans leading up to the night, but on the 30th, I came down with a slight sore throat so we said maybe we would just go to dinner and then to a movie the next night which sounded great to me. I woke up the next morning with a runny nose, sore throat and cough as the day progressed, I started getting body aches and I also couldn't control my blood sugars, so we knew we were staying in for NYE, my hubby ordered dinner and went to pick it up, I was in bed before midnight hoping I could sleep off the "cold" I thought I had. I woke up the next day feeling even worse then I did the did the day before and sine it was a Holiday I took some over the counter cold and flu meds and waited until the next day to head to the doctor. Well I finally went to the Dr, and I guess even with a flu shot, I had influenza A the Christmas gift that keeps on giving! I was seriously in bed for a solid 4 days, when I did get up I was so out of breathe it was like I had ran a marathon! I missed 3 days of work and finally went back to work on Monday, i was ready to get back into a routine and see all my wonderful co-workers and friends! I am still feeling a little run down, but so much better! I hope the flu stays away from all of you and your family! If you have suffered from this or are now I feel your pain and hope you feel better soon! Here is a to a healthier 2013!

I hope you all enjoyed your New Years Eve! Did you do anything exciting? Did you make any resolutions or goals? I always say I am going to make some and very rarely get them achieved so this year I am making some that I really do hope to get done!

                          2.   I am also wanting to cook at least 2 meals a week, haha have to start somewhere right? Any good recipes send them my way!
                          3.   I want to lose 15 pounds by May.
                          4. I also want to blog more, going to try and blog more 1-2 times per week!
                          5. Do a redesign of the blog and host my first giveaway! I have some items all ready for one, i am wanting to hit 40 followers before i host the giveaway!
