Blackhawks vs Rangers

“Hello out there, We’re on the air, It’s hockey night tonight!”  If you’re a hockey fan you are likely familiar with The Hockey Song by Stompin’ Tom Conners.  This Midwest girl was born and raised with Chicago Blackhawks in my blood.  I was there when we won the Stanley Cup in 2013 in Boston, and I am a steadfast fan even when it’s a rough year (like this one, for example).  Read more

Maybe you have read my recent blog on Liberty, our new special-needs Biewer Yorkie with cerebellar hypoplasia. Well, she has been in our home for 3 weeks.

What’s the best thing about Halloween: COSTUMES. We can all agree that Halloween is the one day every year that you can acceptably dress up as anything. We were so prepared. The front of our home was decorated with pumpkins, spider webs, and skeletons. This year we decided to dress up like vampires. We used everything: white and black make-up, fake blood, lots of black clothing and capes.  Read more
