Oh what a night!

Everything was closed again today because of the ice so I actually had the time to do a WHOLE bunch of swatching. I was really excited to post the pics but unfortunately life had other plans. I just got back from the ER vet with my dachshund (Blitz). Earlier this evening I went to pick him up to snuggle on the couch with me when something in his back or leg must have pulled or twisted. He started crying and shaking violently and I started freaking out. We braved the ice to take him to the ER vet (which luckily is only a few miles from our house). He is drugged up now but the doc is talking like back surgery is in his near future. My dogs are my babies so my heart is breaking right now. I don't feel silly asking you to say a little prayer for Blitz tonight (if you're into that sort of thing) that all that's wrong is a pulled muscle and he won't have to have back surgery.

The only good thing about tonight is that I actually won a giveaway over at Beauty by Brittany. I recently discovered her blog but I have really enjoyed reading it and seeing her beautiful pictures! And I love it even more now that I know we're both Texans! I'm pretty stoked about everything in her giveaway but I can't wait to see the the 2 MoodStruck color changing polishes and the KleanColor in Starry Purple looks right up my alley. Thank you Brittany for your amazing giveaway and for lifting my spirits tonight!


  1. Aw, I'm sorry about Blitz. I hope everything works out well with that, and he gets well soon. I completely understand your worry for you pet. My cat is my baby too, and I get scared when anything is out of the ordinary for her.

    I'll be thinking of you and him tonight. Congrats on winning Brittany's giveaway I'm sure that made your night a little brighter.

  2. Blitz is in my thoughts/prayers. Hope all is well or getting better for him. Poor guy. :/
