Oops

Sorry for the chiropractic related post...I was logged into the wrong blogger account. I'll try to think of a good story or something to make up for the work related post. Stay tuned...

Spinal Screenings







We have just upgraded our care to include technology that has benefited NASA, Super Bowl Champions, Olympic gold medalists and numerous A-list celebrities.

You don't have to be an astronaut or a world-class athlete to want your body operating efficiently. This technology will allow us to have a greater impact on the overall health of our community.

The technology - known as the Insight Discovery Subluxation Station - was born from a partnership between NASA and the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance (CLA), a New Jersey-based company. The Insight allows chiropractors to scan their patients' neurospinal health. These scans easily and accurately identify areas of nerve interference that may be preventing one's nervous system from operating efficiently. When one's nervous system is functioning at peak capacity, the human body has more energy, a greater resistance to disease and less need for pain. Once pinpointed via the technology, chiropractic adjustments are then utilized to remove the area(s) of nerve disruption.
NASA has used the technology to evaluate the physical attributes of astronauts. The space agency and CLA were recently praised on Capitol Hill for introducing this technology to the general public.

We can now offer proof as to the need for care and the progress that one can make while under care.


This technology got a lot of use this past weekend at two local events - the Keller KidsFest and Medlin Mardi Gras (at Medlin Middle School in Trophy Club). We had a great time getting to know more people in the community and educating them about the importance of their nervous system. Here are a few pictures from the weekend...even a giant lizard wanted to get scanned!

More Countess


I've been watching The Real Housewives of New York City. Does anyone else watch this ridiculous show??? I don't really find any of the "characters" that endearing...but at times I like Luann (who is also a countess) the most. Then she gets into some kind of confrontational arguement with someone and I don't like her anymore. If you like reality tv...as I do...then watch this one! Your husbands/boyfriends/fathers will love you for it.

Kylea and the Countess?

I went to lunch yesterday with my college friend Marci and she asked me if I'd heard about the Countess from Sweden, Marie Douglas David, who is trying to get a ton of money from her ex-husband to keep up with her "lifestyle". Evidently her "lifestyle" requires $53,000 per week...my kind of lady! (was that out loud?)

Anyway...I hadn't heard about her and the reason Marci had asked was because her and her husband saw the woman on the news and Scott, her husband, blurted out "She looks just like Kylea." Of course I went straight back to work and "googled" her. I'm not sure if we look alike or not...so I'll put it to a blogger vote (if anyone even reads this or cares...no hurt feelings either way).

Do I look like this woman??? If so then I'm planning to a little "bait and switch" in the courtroom. Bryan and I could really use $53,000 a week!

Come here Bandit!

For 3 1/2 years I lived in a high-rise condo in Dallas. I now live in a one story "ground level" townhome in Trophy Club. I'm happy with either...but there have been a few things that have taken some getting used to. For one, in Dallas on the 8th floor I felt that I could walk around in my underwear and if anyone in the office building across the way was there that early and or late and had chosen my window to look in with their binoculars then so be it. Heck that would be kind of flattering in a creepy way. (kidding) I also didn't have to worry about bugs. In over 3 years I only saw two that were strong enough to fly up to my balcony and through the open door. We also had a stow-away gecko from my parents house once but that's another story. The third difference has been the issue of taking out the trash. In Dallas I walked down the hall and dropped my trash bag into a magical chute never to see it again. In Trophy Club I walk 5 feet out the door and leave it on the corner of the street and then see it again in the morning...being torn open by a neighbors chihuahua. Which leads me to 2 nights ago...

Around 10pm in my pajamas I decide to go take the trash outside so I won't forget in the morning. When I get there I see across the street a raccoon digging in my neighbor's trash. I immediately put down my trash bag and run inside to get Bryan. I think raccoon's are really cute and I love their little man hands. I go in saying "Bryan! I found us a new pet! Can we keep him?" He comes outside with me and we're standing about 20 feet from Bandit (oh yeah I named him Bandit) and I'm half yelling half whispering "Hey Bandit! Come here buddy! You wanna come live with Kylea??" At the time he looked something like this:



I'm really doing all this for Bryan's entertainment fully expecting Bandit to turn and run away from the giant humans. Instead he gets up on his hind legs, looks me right in the eye, and takes off full speed straight at us. So we turn and run inside while I scream "Ahhh...maybe Bandit's is rabid!" He now (in my mind's eye) looks like this:



After calming down inside I send Bryan out with a broom to shoo Bandit away and bring our trash back in the house so I don't have to face the neighbors and anything personal that might be lurking in the bag just waiting for Bandit to put on display. We then laid in bed coming up with scenarios of Bandit waiting inside for us when we got home from work one day, or pranking us by knocking on our door and running every night. Please don't hurt us Bandit...I come in peace!

Preschool Stars

I also just realized I never posted my video from Camille and Olivia's program. Camille hammed it up as usual and Olivia never missed a word and did a few little "Miss America" poses for us :) I love them so much and can't believe how much they've changed! (I'd also like to give a shout-out to Annaleigh Frantz...I love that she's friends with my niece and I'm friends with her mommy!)


Dedication


I just completed my second week of boot camp! I'm loving it! My jeans are getting baggy :) woo hoo! The weather the last 3 days has been really gross. Wednesday he cancelled it due to lightening, yesterday I slept in but TODAY I drug my booty out of bed and went. This photo is me just after returning this morning from my 1 hour session...I'm wearing long underwear, long pants, a long sleeve shirt, a tshirt, a fleece, windbreaker and gloves. I'm not cut out for winter!

Home is where the TV is

We have not had ANY television in our home since we moved in on December 15th... At first we were just too busy to really notice or care. Plus with Christmastime came lots of DVDs and so we had plenty to watch in the evenings. Then last week after I watched every season of The Office again I realized it was time. So today I spent 6 hours sitting around the house making small talk with the Dish Network Installer. I plan to set my DVR to record my favorite shows while sitting in my pajamas on the couch tonight :) Now our little rental can feel like home again...because what's a home without 52" of glorious trash?

Facebook Addiction

I admit that I'm addicted to facebook...I only pray that I'm not this annoying in real life.
