I had to go have my yearly MRI for my Chiari. I had surgery in 2009 and I’ve had an MRI every year since to make sure everything stayed where it was supposed to.Well today  Dr. McDreamy gave me the all clear and released me forever. Right after he told me I had beautiful hair and a beautiful brain. First time I’ve heard that one.

Johnny was given an article to read at work. It was about finding things that truly make you happy. Determining what your long term goal are so that you have something to work towards. I think his plans involve us moving to Austin to room with the girls when they go to UT. Are you truly happy now and if not what can you do to change that? Life is too short to not be happy.

Smoothies make me happy! This was delicious. The perfect combination of cherry and vanilla.
