Daily dribble about life, pets, coupons and of course NKOTB!

On The Move

Finally, after 5 LOOOONG years, I’m moving!!! I’m super duper excited!

A friend of mine bought a house, so she moved out of her rental early, and we were able to swoop in early and snatch it up before it was put on the market!! Denver is in a crazy housing ordeal right now (ugh, thanks weed legalization), we have like the 4th highest rental rates in the whole country its ridiculous.

So anyways, its a 2 bedroom, 1 bath, full basement and, AND! HAS A BACKYARD FOR THE DOGS!!! Hardwood floors throughout, no dishwasher though, sad face. My friend was gracious enough to leave her washer and dryer for us AMAZEBALLS as well as a free standing AC unit. I must admit, the backyard having part is selfish on my part, that i don’t have to walk the dogs in the snow anymore (=  It’s only about 20 minutes away from where I am now, really less than 15 miles. But its in a part of town I’ve never LIVED in, but I am somewhat familiar with. I’ll adjust fine. Just need to find where all my grocery stores are to get my couponing done!

I’ve been packing for WEEKS now, because I’m a procrastinator, and I pretty much have all the major stuff done. Just have to take apart the bed friday night, and the speakers in the living room and all the things I cant pack cuz i need, like shower stuff, makeup etc.  I’ll have to spend all day sunday cleaning the old place so I can be done with it. The cats are gonna be stressed, the dogs are gonna love it I hope.

Wednesday I leave for my next NKOTB cruise!! Such a time crunch on all this but it is what it is. I’m not 100% prepared for this cruise as usual, but whatevs its my vacation and I’ll make due!

Welp I gotta get back to packing, well after I finish the new Blacklist episode!!


Happy Anniversary!

I Noticed this when I logged on today:

5 Year Anniversary Achievement

Happy Anniversary with!

You registered on 5 years ago!

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!

That means VOX went away 5 years ago, which is sad! I made quite a few friends through VOX which I still talk to today!

I know its been a while since my last update and I said i’d be better at it, but apparently I was wrong! Truthfully I don’t open my laptop that much, and its just easier to post via instagram/facebook/twitter than opening the WP app. Laziness I tell ya!

So lets see, if you havent followed me anywhere else, Justin is finally gone he left on my birthday. I had my apt to myself for a whole month! Then, Marc and I got back together and he moved back in lol. I totally dont mind sharing with him, living together has never been an issue for us.

I left my job at the clinic I was working at and returned to doing relief work, so now i’m all over the metro area, a different place almost every day. Its working for now – its paying the bills. Come winter though, I may want to settle down somewhere so I’m not driving far in the snow with idiots.

Just over a month left until my next cruise. Thankfully everything is paid for or reserved already, i just need to pay off my credit card so I can use it while I’m there!


We went to the 2nd annual Bark at the Park a few weeks ago and had a blast as always! Over 600 people & Dogs went this year!

Hmm not much else I think is going on right now though so I’ll wrap this up and hope to come back soon!! haha

Here, Catch!

Dear bloggity blog, I am SO sorry I have neglected you since February Whoops, January!!! My gosh! So much has happened in the last few months so I’ll try and catch you up quickly – For those of you who aren’t on FB/Instagram that is.

In February I started a full time job at a vet clinic, it’s going great these days! Working 5 1/2 days a week there pretty much every week. My Purina contract ended at the end of June so I’m down to 1 job now. I do some dog sitting for clients from the clinic on occasion so that’s helpful in the money dept!

My dad moved out in March to his own apartment finally. Justin moved in around the same time. Things really went downhill after that. At the beginning of June I broke up with Justin.

Today’s my Birthday! 

And Justin moved out today. I finally, after 15 months, have my apartment back to myself! No roommates no couch surfers no one taking up my bed except my pets! No one else eating my food, making a mess, not taking out the trash or not doing the dishes! Now I’ll only have myself to blame if shit doesn’t get done. But really, I feel more in control of things these days after living with multiple people who just don’t give a shit about their living environments, I realize that I really care about where I live and my STUFF! Hoping to get everything cleaned and in order in the next week or so – so I can maintain it easily.

I’ve got my next NKOTB Cruise coming up in October so I’m prepping for that. My last payment is this month so all this dog sitting is really helping me accomplish that.

I think I’m going to be happy being single for a while. I’m going to relish in it actually. I was happy initially with the last relationship but it fizzled out after a while and thats that. I don’t need to dredge up what happened or all the annoyances, but I’m just happy to have my life back to myself and be happy again!

With my Sundays now free, I want to do more things with the dogs, maybe outdoorsy things, small hikes or whatnot. Something that won’t kill ME!

All the cats and dogs are still around, healthy and happy no concerns with them. The only downfall about living by myself is again is that I have no one to walk them if I’m running late from work, or woke up too late in the morning! I have to get back into the hang of getting up EARLIER to make sure I walk the dogs. Which I guess would be easy to accomplish if I can manage to go to bed earlier. Easier said than done right?

Speaking of, I should wrap this up and head to bed, 7am shifts on Wednesdays suck!

I promise, i’ll be back more often with real updates!

Tasty Tasty Campbell’s

A while back I was sent a big box of Campbell’s goodies from crowdtap with lots of new items to try out!

Here’s some of what I tried:

Portobello mushroom soup, I added garlic, pesto, artichoke hearts and eventually pasta

Everyone loves spaghettios!

Pasta, creamy parmesan chicken, French cut green beans.

This ended up being a loaded potato soup! Deeeeelish!

Thank you Campbell’s for letting me try some new recipes, I’ll definitely be buying these items again!

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 35 trips to carry that many people.

Putting things back together

Hey all how’s it going? Things are moving right along here.


My car was outta commission for a few weeks, but she’s back in one piece now. Just need to replace the ignition coil and hopefully that’ll fix the rough idle. Just have to come up with money to get the paint done and buy some new tires before winter hits.


A few weeks ago I went home to NV for my bff Jenny’s wedding, just a quick weekend trip saw family and a few friends and that was it.

Works been, well work. Working in a sea of estrogen gets old after a while. I like our clinic but I won’t lie, I’ve been looking at other job postings.

I’ve had reoccurring tooth pain over the last few weeks and an abscessed tooth finally came to fruition. I knew my tooth had abscessed based on the amount of pain I was in when I woke up this morning. It’s rare for me to cry over anything aside from a sad puppy story, but I was bawling today and Justin did all he could to comfort me. Thankfully my dentist has Emergency appts, One root canal later I’m still sore but overall feeling better.

Hopefully my liver doesn’t hate me, the amount of excedrin, vicoden, morphine, dilauded, and nitrous I’ve had in me in the last 48 hours is insane. Had to have my dad drive me to the dentist and back, made him stop and get a milkshake on our way home lol.

Since I couldn’t find a heating pad anywhere in my house I had to improvise. Remembered I had these aromatherapy slippers my grandma gave me, so I pulled the warming bag out of it to use on my jaw. Mucho better now, hopefully I can sleep tonight.

Dogs are good, rats are good, cats are good, sassy is still a fatty, trying a different rx weight loss food for her again..

I don’t think much else is really going on to report, really it’s cuz we’re too broke to actually do anything lol.  I’m gonna take my painful mouth to bed now.

And this, just cuz!

I hurt her feelings today






Was totally my bad. I wasn’t texting or talking, was reaching for my gate key card and I dunno what happened, looked up, swerved, and instead of hitting the trailer head on, just took out the right side of my car… I think the fluid leaking is washer fluid, not coolant. The radiator looks intact.

My mom’s pissed, and I don’t have collision coverage just liability. Hoping the frame isn’t damaged to the point of totaling it. Justin says he has friends who can try to help repair it, and Tyler says he’ll come look at it this weekend.

It’s probably drivable in some capacity, but I have a 20+ mile commute to work everyday, I don’t really want to risk it. So my mom’s sending money to get a rental car tomorrow.

So I’m missing out on work today and that sucks, I’ve got a headache from stress and my tooth that’s bothering me, which I have a dentist’s appt for tomorrow. Luckily Jess is gonna drop me off at the rental place in the morning so I don’t have to bus it.

I’m ready for a nap.

Skintimate-ly Smooth!

Last week I received a nifty package in the mail from Crowdtap, and as always it was filled with awesomeness!

This time it was Skintimate’s new Mandarin Burst Moisturizing Shave Gel!

It actually came at the perfect time because I had just run out a few days before and was using conditioner to shave with, which just ISN’T the same.

The description is right on though the scent DOES remind me of a tropical vacation, much like the Bermuda trip i took this summer! Mandarin, lemon, and lime woke up my senses in the shower and also moisturized my legs, I didnt even need to apply any lotion or body oil after my shave!

Here’s my #SkintimateHappyLegs !

Hey hey heeeey!

Lookit me posting again so soon!!

So there’s been a few things going on in the last week or so..

I took, and PASSED my VTNE (national boards) which means i’ll now be a CERTIFIED VET TECH!!

Awesome sauce! i was really nervous and didnt study as much as I should have, but all i know is i passed. In a few weeks i’ll get the detailed results of the test. 

In the meantime, it means I’ve gotten a $1 raise at work! Next week i’ll be training in Surgery so the Dr feels comfortable with me doing all that. Probably after that i’ll be moving to the 1pm-9pm time slot. Which is ok, just cuts into my social life ya know? Sometimes i’m asleep by 9pm too LOL

Then a few days ago, I got a call from my dad that my grandma, his mom, had passed away. She was 93 and it was finally her time. She’d been hanging on for years with Alzheimer’s/demensia, and the after effects of shingles. 

Last night, I went with my previous boss Annette from Ulta and saw Bruno Mars in concert!! It was his last stop on the Moonshine Jungle tour and it was aaaaaamazing! We had 6th row seats so that was pretty damn cool in itself!! He put on a great show and I highly recommend it if you get the chance on his next tour! 

Lets see if this playlist will embed….
