Chicken Guinness Vegetable Soup


-Coco is doing well. Thank you for all of the well wishes. After a VERY long day and rough post-op, she is wearing a pink nightgown, sparkle headband and pink puppy slippers and has had approximately 1, 876 popsicles. Plus she can watch NON-stop TV and no one will call her a “bubble head”. I mean, minus the fact that they actually operated on her throat, it is pretty much her ideal situation.

-“Rescue my Renovation” had another great night, and I am very grateful for all of your support. I hope you guys are enjoying the makeovers!! Stay tuned for more of my makeover magic each Wednesday night on DIY!
