Rental Property: BEFORE

HGTV is one of my favorite channels. It’s really one of the main reasons I wanted to keep our cable even though the price went up and we rarely, rarely watch anything on TV :/ (I’m all about Netflix!). I love a good home makeover show… my favorites are Property Brothers and Income Property… so needless to say I was super excited for my parents when they said they were purchasing a fixer-upper to turn into a rental property. Even if I wasn’t involved directly, I was excited to see their progress – and the before and after. Well as soon as I figured out I would be getting out of the military and had an opportunity to move and work back home, I naturally signed us up to live in their rental. :) So now I’m even more excited because I get to see everything first-hand. And so I’ll share :) Here are a few before pictures:          So they’ve been working tirelessly and I’ve been watching from afar as my mom …

Farewell, Summer.

Are we sure Summer didn’t just start?! I’ve been working on clearing photos off my phone (it took me nearly 2 1/2 years, but I finally filled up my phone’s memory enough that it stopped working)… here are a few from my last Summer in Cheyenne: Sunbathing and lazy-bum pups galore: The view of Cheyenne from a long run: A random funny moment at the clinic: My last Frontier Days: A giant Thanksgiving dinner in August: My best bowling score to date (and yes, apparently it was my alter ego Kylie who got the score, not me): My first traditional Shave Ice: Hello, Fall (a.k.a. Winter… we are in Wyoming, after all! I’m just hoping the snow holds off a little bit longer than last year…)! I can already feel the holiday season coming! :) Until next time,

Not funny!!!

So I got an email from United Blood Services the other day saying my blood type is currently in high demand. They probably say that to everyone, but I decided to take it as a sign, and went on to make an appointment. When I first moved to Wyoming, I started giving blood on a regular basis. They have a great facility here and they make it super easy to schedule your appointment, go in, and get on your way (with cookies!). Then I started selling my plasma (for a short time) – also a nice facility in the area – but that just wasn’t the same. Then after going to Belize, I had to put it all on hold for a while – it’s one of those travel areas where once you get back they make you wait a year in case you are harboring something in your blood. I’m so glad to get back to it though! I signed up to give whole blood but they needed plasma most, so that’s what I gave today. Give me a …

MakeLifeRx

Blog Update! As I mentioned somewhere is the midst of this ginormous post… I’m ready for a change… something simpler… and a blog name that’s less attached to a particular phase of my life. Hence, MakeLifeRx! Saying goodbye to FINZO 43P… FINZO stood for Finn & Zoe… my beloved fur babies. And 43P is the Air Force Specialty Code for pharmacists. As I move into the next phase of my life and away from the Air Force in a few months, I wanted something that would be a little more flexible. Plus, the more I look at FINZO 43P, the more I feel like I should have used it as a password rather than a blog name. Granted, now that I’ve said that, I will definitely not be using it as a password, but you get my drift! It’s meant to represent my journey into making life what I want it to be. A prescription for the good life, if you will (or maybe you won’t… lol… that sounds pretty lame, I know). Along with that, …

The Versatile Blogger Award

It’s like the email chain letter of the blogging world! But it’s a fun one because it brings bloggers together and lets you share awesome people you’ve stumbled across in the interwebs! Thank you so much to Teresa at NavyBlueThreads for the nomination! I love her sewing! She’s fairly new to it as well, but really inspiring!    So here are the rules of the award for anyone who chooses to accept the nomination: Thank the person who nominated you and create a link back to their blog. Share 7 things about yourself. Nominate 15 other versatile bloggers. Tell the bloggers that you nominated them. Hmm… so here are 7 things about me: I’m allergic to bee stings. I got stung A LOT as a child, and my reactions seemed to get worse every time. I rarely remember to carry my EpiPen with me. :/ I LOVE coffee, but ALWAYS leave my coffee cup sitting around somewhere and end up re-heating it at least three times before I finish it. I am a sugar addict… constantly trying …
