Adar Scrub Top Review

A month ago I was given the opportunity to review an Adar scrub top from Uniformed Scrubs.
I wear scrubs every day at work and to be quite honest, you can never have enough, so I was up for the challenge.
The top that I was sent was the Adar Mock wrap top.

The material on this top is pretty stiff. Even after I washed it. I'm usually a small in most items and this was also a little big. So definitely get a size down if you order.
I also felt that this top was very boxy, especially around the shoulder areas. I prefer a more giving material with elastic in the fabric, however I do think that this top could stand years of wear and washing! The fabric is very durable.

The bunching in the back with the tie is cute and it pulls the top in so that it's not so square.   

There are a ton of different styles and prints to chose from. 
You can find more information about their specials and products on their blog , Pinterest, and Facebook.

And they have also given me a coupon code for any blogger who is interested in purchasing scrubs! 

Enter code "trueblue" to get 15% off of your order. It's good until July 31st 2013.

That time I planted a garden and ran over my dog

Helloooooooooo blog world!
 I have been a busy bee now that summer is on it's way and I have honestly been way to occupied to be blogging! I'm trying to sneak in this update today!

I know I still owe you a vacation update, and a DIY project that is in my basement completed AND I have 3 amazing recipes to link up too! BOOOOOO ME!

Friday was such a gorgeous day out, that the hubs and I got to go to the beach.

I realized that I needed to make a last minute run to Target for 2 new beach chairs and a cooler. Oh and a packy run to pick up some delicious sweet tea vodka! 

 Friday night I made a plan, a real one this time (I'm notorious for changing my mind a 100x, I'm the most indecisive and sporadic person you will ever know). 

I decided to plant a garden before it was too late in the seaon.
We live near a sand pit/pond so our sand resources were limitless!

I went to Home Depot with my mom and picked out all of my veggies! 

summer squash
7 tomato plants
green beans
romaine lettuce
green/red/orange/yellow/jalapeno/red cherry peppers
Sunday I had loam delivered and planted the sucker!

With my mom's and my brother in law's help and tips this garden should grow like a weed! They both have amazing green thumbs and always have successful gardens. I however have a black thumb, but I will try everything once! 

In between spreading sand and planting veggies, I also tackled some landscaping projects with my sisters. I swear she could work for HGTV with her skills! About 80% of my beds are planted and edged, I just need a mulch delivery (hint hint).

This next paragraph is the most traumatic part of my weekend.
I was in and out of the house all weekend long, constantly running out to get things that I needed for the garden. Both of our dogs were outside as usual. My little dog Puppa hates when I leave and is always hanging around the car. He's so short that I pay careful attention when I'm leaving not to run him over. He also usually backs up and moves when I start moving or Josh calls him up on the deck.
My little dog's age has finally hit me.
I know that he is deaf, or at least can now only hear a high pitched whistle. And his eyes are clouded over causing poor visibility.
I however, did not know that he may becoming senile as well.   
As I was pulling around the driveway to head to Lowe's with my mom, I felt a thump...proceeded by a noise that a seal makes when they are clapping there flippers (fins? idk) You get my drift.
I immediately slammed on the break and got out of the car.  There was my little Puppa, walking with a limp and shaking his head. 
I was so upset that I yelled at him (I'm going to be a horrible mother.)
By the time he reached the deck he was walking fine and his head stopped shaking. 
He did have a black football patch of grease under his eye and a little on his forehead.
I must have hit him on the side of my tire.
I can't even describe how I felt. He's going to be 14 this year and all I keep thinking is "I almost killed my dog!". I'm always on Josh to watch him when he's outside because he is a wanderer and there I go getting all Fast and Furious on him!
Long story short, he is ok. THANK GOD!
 Not on my watch.
      Ya'll have a fabulous Monday at work. I'm off to go bake a red velvet poke cake! BOOM.
