FRESH FACE FRIDAY [& Blog Hop!]: Meet Emily Anne & Olya

Hey baby, let's go to VEGAS!! Today's the day...we're off to Sin City for 4 days filled with dancing, drinking, and maybe a scosche of gambling with my college roommate and her hubby! This whole trip came about thanks to D's birthday in early Feb and Nancy's 30th in late-Feb, so we thought no better way to celebrate two important birthdays than with some flashing lights and a little debauchery. Don't worry, Mom, we're too old to go too crazy (I envision a lot of whining and a fair amount of eye-rolling at the thought of staying out past midnight), but we're excited about letting our hair down just a bit. Especially after the stressful holiday season we just endured. Speaking of that, Tuck had his follow up vet appointment on Monday and the vet cleared him of strict crate rest! YAY! He's spent the week getting reacclimated to his walks around the neighborhood, chasing after his mini soccer ball, and frolicking around the back yard like the happiest pup in the world. If he could smile, he'd be smiling constantly these days. We're so thankful he's made a swift recovery, but we're still aware he's basically a ticking time bomb and could have another episode if we're not diligent with keeping him off furniture and away from stairs. So far, he's only escaped up the stairs once, but we were able to carry him back down before he had the chance to do it himself. That weenie will be the death of us, but we love him to pieces! If I have to die from the stress of keeping Tuck healthy, well, then I guess it'll be worth it. ;)

While I'm enjoying the spoils of Las Vegas, I hope you'll hang out with my fabulous co-hosts for Fresh Face Friday! I'm always so thrilled every time I get an email that a new blogger has linked up...even more stoked when I see connections being made in comments and on Twitter! Bloggers love community, so don't miss your chance to make new blog friends! Cheers to a safe and sassy weekend!
