Home Sweet Home and Giving Blood!

b 003
It feels SO, SO good to be back in our house!! There really is no place like home. We are so happy to be back, and are LOVING our new floors and countertops!! If you wanna see the rainbow, you gotta put up with the flood, huh? (Such a cheeseball, I know!)

Lookin’ forward to a fabulous weekend with THIS guy!! Hope you have a restful weekend too!!
By the way, I gave blood for the first time on Thursday!! It was such a rewarding feeling. I have a major needle phobia, but after having my physical this week (and not passing out during blood work), I was feeling pretty brave. I asked my doctor to find out my blood type (I’m adopted and don’t know mine….and that’s important), but he said insurance company wouldn’t pay for it, so the best way to find out was to give blood. JUST SO HAPPENED LifeSouth was in the Kroger parking lot next to my gym, so I decided to bite the bullet and do it.

Gotta be honest…I felt like I got hit by a truck afterwards. But, it was SO worth it. Did you know….you lose 1 lb, burn 800 calories, and SAVE 3 LIVES when you donate????  Plus I got this sweet t-shirt! Glad to be a donor.

i've never given blood either! too scared!!! i can't remember when i found out my blood type. I know Kye's we didn't find out until he had surgery b/c they don't check for it anymore. So strange!
