BBQ and Stuff!

Monday, March 3, 2014

I love that this new boat gives me more time with my husband. Friday we didn't do anything worth talking about (read: we watched t.v. and drank hot tea like old people do).  Saturday morning Taylor woke me up early to see if I was going to Stella's vet appointment. Duh, that's my baby! And boy, am I glad I did. For the most part, we really liked her new vet. She was super friendly and knowledgeable and even gave us a tour of their hospital, which we have never had offered. The usual praise of how precious she is and if we ever wanted to find another home for our sweet girl (ha! yah right!) they would all be happy to have her. Then, as fast as I liked those people, I wanted to rip their tongues right out of their mouths (that may be a touch dramatic). You see, Stella is a rescue, so we're not quite sure of her age. We have had her for 5 years though, and she wasn't a puppy when we got her, but those mean people at the vet's office guesstimate she is around 7. That is not what made me mad, it was when they referred to Stella as a SENIOR dog, a SENIOR!! Clearly those ladies must have been on some type of drugs that morning, and were unaware of the words coming out of their mouths. I refuse to believe my Stella is getting older, I just refuse!!!
Stella ready to go HULK on those vet techs!

Later that day we went shopping for some items to complete our coffee bar. Pictures coming soon. Then that night we got to spend some time with some of our beloved NC family. When Taylor and I lived with our roommates, we also got to know their families as well. And when we found out we were heading to TN, we were thrilled to learn our roommate's brother and family lived here too. We decided to meet up for some Memphis BBQ. It was so nice to see familiar faces and the BBQ made it's way to the top of the list thus far.
I'm not a photographer, clearly, but this was so amazing.

After the game we headed downtown (after the GPS routed us through the GhEtTo!) and grabbed some tickets for the Grizzlies basketball game. Since it was our first time at the fed ex forum and we had two small children with us we decided to buy the cheap nose bleed tickets. Well, secretly I think the boys were scared if we were anywhere close to the floor, and saw Justin Timberlake, we might be arrested, and that may be the real reason for nose bleed seats, but whatevs. And since we saved on tickets, and I could care less about basketball, I didn't mind spending nine dollars on a beer. Well, maybe I cared a little. Either way it was a fantastic night and I can't wait to spend more time with those familiar faces again!

  1. I was kind of the same way with Tyson. He is a senior dog too since he is 7.5. But didn't know it till before his last vet appointment. They sent the reminder card in the mail and it said it is time for Tysons senior wellness appointment. I am like what?! It doesn't seem like he is old yet. I consider him old when he cannot go running outside and going psycho lol.
