Kerbey was seriously AMAZING over the weekend. It was our first long-term road trip with her. I had taken her to Nac to see my cousins but only for the day...this was a whole 4 DAYs away from home! Everyone fell in love with her...(duh) Charlie, Brian's little cousin was obsessed with her. He completely exhausted her...which has NEVER happened! We were excited :) She only had...MAYBE 5 accidents the whole weekend (which is unbelievable considering her normal 3 accidents per day trend).
This was Kerbelicious and Charlie ALL DAY LONG on Thanksgiving.
Amy practicing her puppy-sitting skills for when Bistro and me go to NYC!!
Marsh-Marsh, Davey, & Ames babysat her on Saturday while Brian and I road tripped it to H-town to watch The Reidster's playoff game. We trekked through the rain and then sat in it for THREE HOURS!!! Good thing we came prepared with our ski gear, a tarp, approximately 5 raincoats, beanies, gloves, trashbags, rainboots, scarves, and hoods! I SO wish I had a picture of everyone...we looked ridiculous...but it was worth it! The Rangers pulled out a victory. Down by 12 with under 5 minutes left, we came out on top 34-32! UNREAL. Congrats Reidy-boo :) It was awesome to see my parentals, G-momma, Riles and Morgster, and the Reidster. I can't WAIT til Christmas with the Currys!!!
But Thanksgiving with the Bradfords was definitely TOTALLY awesome. All 5 of us Bradfords haven't gotten to spend that much time together in FOREV. Brian and I have been running around like crazy and Amy's a work-a-holic (too busy hanging out with celebrities, planning marathons, and throwing high profile parties for Dallas' finest!).
Anywho- I'm glad to hear how awesome everyone else's T-givs were! I miss all of you LOTS and can't wait to see everyone! I hope we will all be in the Shoog at SOME point over the holidays!!! Til then, God bless, love you, ...holla :)

So a couple of weeks ago I started working on my Christmas gift list. I do this every year in an attempt to start my Christmas shopping EARLY...so that I don't become "one of those people". You know the ones I'm referring to... the "ones" who are running around at 10:30pm on Christmas Eve to find that last minute gift, which they're OBVIOUSLY not going to find because it's been sold out since 2 weeks after Thanksgiving, so they get stuck with the classic (and lame) gift card. Not that I'm dissing the gift card...it's a beautiful thing...but if you can't come up with something personal and original for a family member... okay...I digress.
Back to my Black Friday adventure. I had every intention of getting up at 5:30 to head out, and well, I got half of it right. I got up at 5:30...to let Kerbey outside to take care'o'bidness...and went back to bed :) I tried again at 7:00, but decided I would just shop online. I could have SWORN I heard that online sales are even better than the in-store sales. Um...whoever gave me that bit of sadly mistaken advice is on my bad list. SO...after an hour of scouring the internet for anything even RESEMBLING a good deal, I armored up. I put on tennis shoes, a baseball cap to hide my greaseball of a head, and Brian's extra large "scrub jacket". I figured looking this nasty would clear the aisles enough for me to get my shopping done quickly! Actually...I was just WAY too tired to do anything to improve myself. Sooo...off I went...my first Black Friday shopping trip EVER! (my mom and i have NEVER been big on the idea of shopping at the exact same time as 8million other people.)
Needless to say, 3 hours later I returned home with a trunk full of AWESOME gifts, a 1/2 tank less than when I left (I have yet to create a mental map of Lufkin), and a LOT more still in my bank account than I could have imagined! Who knew shopping could be so fun...and COMPETITIVE??
So...all that goes to say...God Bless Black Friday :) It's my new fav holiday!

I stumbled across this story while on my daily ESPN.com surfing trip :) It's exciting to hear stories like this....stories about people who are taking advantage of the size of their circle of incluence to increase God's Kingdom...without having to be in the spotlight. Pretty inspiring! Check it out...even if you DON'T like football!! ;o)

So anyway...I've been googling all morning, and I have diagnosed her with "Kennel Cough", which I think she got (ironically) from the VET!!! grrr... When we went last week there was a nasty mangy looking dog who was basically coughing up a lung the whole time. I tried to keep Kerbey away from him, but he was in the waiting room. There was no way to hide her from his nasty little germs. EW!
I'm not taking her to the vet yet... instead, I'm proceeding with a more... holistic approach.
A few different herbs and some honey will HOPEFULLY do the trick and save us from a third vet visit in as many weeks! We'll see how it pans out :)
Does this count as being a "mom" ? ;)
