I love my Utah. I love my America. And I love everyone who has helped to make both awesome!
Happy Memorial Day.


Good friends post photos of your scenic hike
 and photos of you looking good before your hike.
 But they probably don't post them of you halfway through your hike looking like you're gonna die because both of you are so out of shape (but not for long).
I forgot which one I am. This one is for motivation!

I have a nervous/anxious dog. She sometimes bites the fur on her knees if she is home alone (I have been leaving lights and the tv on for her to make her feel like there are people there). She also throws her fur like a maniac when she is in the car (but she acts like she LOVES car rides). I've tried several options to try to help calm her, but nothing has seemed to work. Then I tried Fidobiotics. They currently have 3 products: Good Guts (dog gas remedy), Puppy Breath Crusher (dog breath remedy), and Relaxin' Rover (dog anxiety treatment).

It is made of a blend of probiotics and natural calming ingredients that help promote digestion and immune function. 
The sachet can be fed daily or on occasions of anxiety or stress and to promote healthy digestion. It is simple to use-add to your dog's food or water. 

Does your dog dread fireworks (it's that time of year again), can she clear a room with stinky toots, is she trying her hardest to run away when it's time to go to the vet, or does he have morning breath all day and night? Then these might be the products for you and your pooch.

I have decided smart people read books. I want to be smart. So I set a goal to read more books. 

I had The English Sombrero by Doug Goddard and Anthony Randall suggested to me with this brief synopsis:

It’s 1999, twenty-six stone alcoholic, chain smoking, fast food junkie, millionaire businessman Don Simmons has a drunken £250,000 bet that he can complete a half marathon in under an hour and a half.
Once sober and realizing the seriousness of his wager, he decides to take a year out, move to Spain, shed half his body weight, and commence a grueling training regime in order to preserve his esteem, win the money and save his life.
This humorous novel set for the most part against the back drop of beautiful Catalonia, is book 1 in a series of 4 following the outrageous exploits of a modern day avenger, a righter of wrongs, champion of adversity, and lover of malt whiskey. 

A book full of humor, travel, and crazy adventures....sign me up! We've had a few weekends full of rain, so I snuggled up with a blanket, my dog, and this book. I was hooked. I didn't want to put it down. That's great for me! This book has 435 pages, and it is super easy to read, but entertaining at the same time (with some cheeky British words/saying in the mix that will just make you smile). What is an ‘English Sombrero’ you ask? Well, that is for you to read and find out.

Two of my favorite lines from this story are:

“A day is not lost if a good memory is made.”

“To some people life is pre-ordained; all mapped out for you to stumble through till you reach a ghastly end. I had always thought the opposite: that you carved your own destiny, made your own luck.”

If you are looking for a good read and want something a little out of the ordinary to add to your library, think about giving The English Sombrero a chance.

The kids are getting out of school, the weather is becoming warm, and vacation time is rapidly approaching. Next month, I will be going on a fun trip with family and there won't be anyone at home to take care of my Day-Z dog (FYI robbers: we don't have any Ukrainian eggs or diamonds at home). 

Are you also in Utah and need a place to care for your 4-legged friend? If you shop around, you might some find some scary places. But never fear, I have found an amazing pet boarding place for both your dogs and cats. It is called Central Park Pet Retreat. They offer boarding, day care, and training.
The whole place has a super cute New York theme. 
Larger dogs run and play in Central Park

Smaller dogs roam in SoHo

You can find cats on Broadway

  There are play areas full of feathers, scratching posts and balls for your felines to bat around.
Outside, you'll find a big backyard for the dogs to play in and get their energy out.
There are two doors to exit for both big and small dogs. On the big dog side, there are 4 fenced areas for furry friends according to behavior. That's right, no dog will be turned away. More aggressive dogs are still welcome so you can teach them to socialize better and training is available. Your dogs safety and happiness is #1 at Central Park.
 Outside there are benches, bridges, and a splash pad to play on.
 There are also coverings to offer shady spots for your pooch to relax.
If your dog stays overnight, there is an option to get a private suite for them to sleep in if needed. You can also bring your pets bed or blanket to keep them as comfortable as possible. You can also bring your own dog food for feeding time to not upset Fido's tummy. AND special medications can be administered and signed for by the staff to make sure it is completed - this is great because my Dayz needs an eye drop 2x daily.
I have met staff and owners at Central Park and I can honestly say I would trust them to take care of my precious furry family members (whether it be just for the day or an overnight extended stay). Day-Z even went with me to visit and LOVED the backyard.
So as you make your travel plans for your human family, don't forget to make sure your 4-legged family members have an equal amount of care and fun at Central Park Pet Retreat pet boarding and Day Care facility in Salt Lake City, UT.

Feel free to check out their site. They are currently offering price matching for other boarding places and they have a buy 1 get 1 free coupon right now!! 

Stop in and check the place out -- and bring your pet when you go.

My dog has a love/hate relationship with all sewer grates we walk past. She is so intrigued by them, but there is not way she will walk across one on her own. In fact, she makes sure she has her feet planted to keep as far away as she can. It's like she knows there is a creepy, killer clown living down there.

My friend Joe uses a silicone mat to bake cookies and they turn out fabulous EVERY time. Since cupcakes are super popular right now, I needed something to help me bake them perfectly every time. So I tried out the OvenArt Bakeware silicone muffin pan
This pan is awesome because it isn't made from metal so it won't rust, dent, or flake. It is made of 100% high quality European silicone. Everything I have put in it cooks and pops out, cleans up, and is baked almost effortlessly. It is not only safe for the oven, but also for the freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. That means you can make more than just cupcakes, cornbread, and muffins. 
The pan has 12 molds and the dimensions are 12.8 x 9.7 x 1.2 inches. Each cup holds 2.5 ounces and measures 2 3/4 inches across.
I suggest you try making mini deserts, crab cakes, shepherds pie, mini lasagna bakes, or chocolate swirl buns. I tried making  bacon wrapped mini omelets (because I love breakfast food) and they were great!
Give the muffin pan a try -- it is protected by the OvenArt "better muffin" guarantee for lifetime assurance against defects and performance issues.

Costco made me realize I have commitment issues. 
I want to buy trail mix.
*I could go with the big bag that has peanuts and m&m's because I know that one is delicious!
However, I know I don't need to eat the one with m&m's.
*I could try a new kind, but I don't want a 20 lb bag nor do I want to pay $30 for it because I might hate it.

That store seriously fills me with anxiety.
