Let’s kickoff this Memorial Day weekend, which is truly the official kick off for sweet Summer! The weather this week in Indiana has been spot on Perfection! THIS WEEK has been a sweet favorite! A non-favorite…the skin biopsy I had last week came back as another Basel-cell cancer. I’ll have Mohs surgery on June 6th to remove it. But onto sweeter things…


Truly one of the most exciting days ever! I’ve dreamt of this day most of my life! Our boy is going to be a daddy to 2 sweet twin girls! Over the Moon! Isn’t our “Lo” the cutest mama to be! I get to go, along with her mama, a dear friend of mine, to an ultrasound next week and I can’t wait.

With 1st time Great Grandma Giga.

The Grandparents to be and we're good friends!


I made a charcuterie with some blue and pink treats on it.


I had 4 gift bags ready to go for whatever the outcome was with onesies in them that said “I'm Proof My My daddy can't resist nurses"

After the reveal to told Pop Nine to go get the “pink bags” lol.

Baby Chipmunk Chronicles

Oh, you lil baby Chippy! So precious! Had to rescue this baby chipmunk off our pool cover. His body was only about 2 1/2” long.

I was so worried about him and hen the next morning found him dead. Buried him in a flower garden area dedicated to Mr. Nine’s mom. 

BUT that night I found another one, even smaller. No wildlife shelters were open. I gave him water but when I went to check on him the next morning, thought he too was dead and as preparing to bury him until he started moving. 

I kept him warm and fed him diluted electrolyte water and he was perking up. His lil paw on the heart!

After much research and your help on Instagram to call my vet for advice, I found a lady 12 minutes from me that takes I wildlife and nurses them to health, I rushed him there (here he is on my lap in the car) 

and she was going to put him on a heating pad. Stay tuned for updates. Quite the week. Looked for more as mama probably died and they were on their own, only a couple weeks old the lady said. So happy I saved one.
