This week has been anything but stress free. Between trying to stay on top of the current e-mail situation, and life in general things are crazy. Last Saturday I got home and our little Banks’ eye was swollen. Thinking that him and his puppy brother Harry has been wresting and he maybe took a paw to it, we iced in a bit, flushed it out and decided we would deal with it Monday morning when the vet opened again. Come Monday, the eye is looking a bit worse so we headed to the vet only to learn that even though little Banks is in PERFECT physical health, he has early onset cataracts in his left eye. Tear. Now as a dog mom things like this can be scary because you guys, these puppy brothers are like my children. Well, technically at this point in time they are! Good news is that he can have surgery & his vision will be fixed but we all know how inexpensive a dog eye surgery can be (clearly sarcastic).
One other little hiccup besides little puppy stress was the air conditioning decided to quit. Don’t worry the weather was 60 degrees, so we slept with the windows opened and then learned once the air conditioning guy came over the next day that we just needed to change the filter. All I can say is #firsttimehomeowners and #fail. We live and we learn.
Other than those two little stresses it really was a good week. Last night I hosted the Spring Style event at Trina Turk in Highland Park Village and it was such a blast. Between being around the clothes, shopping with guests & sipping champagne it was a fun night. Since last night went kind of late (afterwards we had dinner with friends) we are more than likely going to be a little bit low key tonight. I often say that and it changes in minute. Who knows. Well enough from me now, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend & don’t forget to check out some of my current favorite items that are on sale (see below). Happy Friday! xx
