Every 3 years or so, I get a new pair of frames. When you wear them 18+ hours a day and in the shower, even the best frames show their age after about 3 years. Trying these #masunaga frames for the first time and can hardly wait to get them back. When my lenses are in them, there won’t be all that glare, but there will be a bit more distortion towards the edges, as usual, so I am very limited in what frames will work, no giant hipster frames or lightweight metal frames for me. Nothing but wonderful things to say about this optometry office, if you’re in need of one in Vegas. Wonderfully down to earth doctor, helpful and knowledgeable staff, and the selection is incredible.
This is Daisy. She lives on my street and gets away every few months. She has no teeth, her tongue always sticks out that side, weighs about 6oz, and her mom doesn't have a voicemail set up. But she got home, not before Juno tried to murder her. So tiny!! #homedefensecat #yorkiesofinstagram #teacupyorkie #dogsofinstagram #lostpetrecovery #iwokeuplikethis
I had to smoosh my first scorpion tonight. We just had the outside sprayed for bugs today. Juno found it in the garage, as usual. I was the only one wearing shoes. This deed brought to you by motherhood/necessity/new anxiety meds. Arizona bark scorpion or similar. Probably about the same size as the one I stepped on, barefoot and blind, 2... 3? years ago. (Used the same foot) RIP from one lil scorp to the next.
Princess tiny feet and her stunning transformation. Double (plus) her previous size, double the previous toner cartridge, still with her adorable crossed eyes. She's never been the cuddling type (in favor of toe hunting) but now she curls up nearby Maggie wherever she sleeps or cries and it damn near breaks my heart. We got this beautiful princess for $4 because @theanimalfoundation shelter was full after July 4th, and it's at capacity again. If you can do so responsibility, consider adopting a pet. I promise you won't regret it. #adoptdontshop #catsofinstagram #timehop #tbt #beforeandafter #weightgainjourney #blueeyes #floofycat #floofer
I couldn't post this at the time, but 2 months ago, my baby Charlie had to be put to sleep because of cancer. Maggie was just over a month old. He was the first dog I adopted, except he found me. He was there for me all throughout grad school, as my surrogate sweetheart while hubby and I were in separate states for 5 years. After that, he was my surrogate child for the next 5 years, while struggling with infertility, depression, and anxiety. He didn't start to show any pain until about a month before Maggie was born. It's like his mission here was to help keep me sane until Maggie was ready to join us. And we never knew it until he was gone. He was older, we knew that (a year old here), but we thought we had a few more years with him. Letting go of him was the hardest thing I ever had to do and we miss him so much. But he sure earned a lot of karma points protecting my heart and being a warrior for the hardest decade of my life. This sweet pibble converted my entire family into not only pit bull lovers, but pittie advocates. We'll never forget you Charlie, and the gifts you gave my family. #pitbullsofinstagram #missingmybaby #cuttingonions #overwhelmed #illneverforgetyou #rip #adoptdontshop #pibble
Both these baby hummers are growing nicely. Mama can't fit on the nest anymore but seems to never be too far. Babies are pooping a ton (as you can see...), beaks are getting longer, and getting their Johnny Rotten spikes in. Their eyes look like they might be open but they're always resting like this, whiplash and everything. You can definitely see their little hummingbird cardiovascular systems are maturing quickly! #babyhummingbird #birdsofinstagram #birdsnest #babybird #twins #yingyang #tachycardia #punkrock
New nails, new leggings, same sausage fingers. One nail broke and she built it back up with gel and a tip, then as she was finishing she accidentally cut my finger with the file. She promptly super-glued the broken skin, apologized profusely and clearly felt terrible, then didn't charge me for the nail. I love the nail tech solution to all problems in life: super glue!! Also, I think they look great. The leggings are nice too. I have no plans to wear pants again for quite a while. Have to get fake Uggs so I can go full lazy all winter.
