Hey guys! Happy Friday. How has your week been? Mine has been kind of tiresome getting used to being in this boot. I don’t think it would be so bad if my left leg wasn’t so weak from having surgery in March. Is this what turning 30 is like? #jesustakethewheel
Yesterday, I made an impromptu trip into the city to take this girl to the vet.
She has been having a tummy issue since Saturday and I thought maybe it was time to get her checked out. She had some lab work sent away but other than that, they couldn’t find anything going on. Hopefully everything comes back normal!
I found out that my previous vet has recently opened his own practice. He was my favorite vet where we used to go, so I gladly followed him! If you are looking for a vet in the North Charlotte / Huntersville area then feel free to shoot me an email. I would be glad to send you his info.
I realized when I started filming a bunch of vlogs that my DSLR doesn’t have autofocus. So I have a bunch of awesome videos that are out of focus. Go me And so now I’m trying to decide if I want to upgrade DSLRs or just get a smaller point-and-shoot camera. If you have any advice on the topic then I’d love to hear your thoughts! I currently have a Nikon D90.

A few articles that have caught my attention this week!

^^^ This article made me so sad, but I’m not surprised. Parents would bring fast food to kids in the cafeteria all the time when I was a school dietitian. I don’t want to villianize food or come across as the food nazi, but I just think fast food should be a “once in a while” food for everyone… especially kids.

Vitamin D supplements: Panacea, placebo or something in between?
^^^ This is super interesting to me because I have a Vitamin D deficiency. My doctor and I have had this discussion many times, but I ultimately feel like I will supplement until it’s been proven that it’s not useful.
Drinking diet beverages? You’re probably making terrible food choices.

^^^ I am completely fascinated with diet soda and its health effects.
