This week has had some highs and lows.
To start with the low, on Wednesday afternoon Koda had a seizure. She has never had this happen before. I was rocking with Kaitlyn, when I felt Koda start bumping against the chair. I looked over to see my sweet pup fall on her side, seize and start foaming at the mouth. To say I freaked out is an understatement. It’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen. The whole event lasted probably under two minutes, but within 5 I had her in the car, had called a great friend who rushed over to stay with the girls and was on my way to the vet.
By the time we got there, Koda seemed perfectly fine, minus her normal vet jitters. They did blood work (normal) and honestly didn’t have many answers. They said it’s not terribly uncommon for dogs to have a seizure as an allergic reaction to eating a different plant or a bee sting. Koda had been outside on her own that morning, so I’m crossing my fingers that it was that. We are now just supposed to watch her. She’s been her normal crazy self since then, so I’m hoping it’s nothing more serious.
To cheer things up a bit, my niece is in town!
My SIL and Kyla arrived yesterday and are spending a couple days here. I am SO excited to spend some time catching up with her and playing with sweet Kyla. Watching the girls together is proving to be a blast, as is the wine sipping and chatting with Cara!
Finally, I have my 6 week check up this morning! I’m excited to hear if I’m cleared for exercise, but honestly I still have no idea when I’d find time for it. It’s something I miss greatly though, so I guess I’ll figure it out.

Now there is no real way to transition into this, but let’s talk yogurt, shall we?
I used to eat a lot of Greek yogurt, then kind of fell off the band wagon. It’s creeping back into my life though thanks to Fage.
It’s thicker and creamier than a lot of other brands I’ve tried (even other 2%). It’s the only one I’ve found that I could even consider eating the plain variety and enjoying it, but I do love that the flavors they offer are in a side container.
I love that I can control the amount I use and usually end up using half the mix in (though I do follow their directions and dip, not mix!). Fage doesn’t use milk concentrates (like Yoplait), though I do wish there was an organic option.
Still, it’s thick, creamy and delicious without added thickeners and we are loving it around here right now.
Do you eat it?
What brand is your favorite?
Flavored or plain?
