A Few Of My Favorite Forbi Things.

This weekend I spent with the dogs of my good friends Amy & John. Over the years I have adopted a list of my favorite things at their house, but have never shared them before... Ooooh! You're being let in on a secret!!! I know. It's soooo exclusive, yes??

Yeah, dudes. That's an ice cream cone light.
Totally weird, totally awesome!

I've lusted after this piece for years...
The late, the great Cub Poppy Forbus.
Forever capturing her inquisitive and gentle nature.
As for non-inanimate objects, here's sweet Tuesday...
All she has to do is look at you with that goofy dog smile and it's over!
I leave you with the Hot Mess. Angus is the most spastic, random dog. And everyone knows my fondness for both... I just love him.

It's Friday, May 29th! The Blog Is Wrong!

I swear! ;-)

Happy Birthday, Dad!

After Shopping For Four Hours...

...this is pretty much how I feel after my two day diet of steady Benadryl and NyQuil. Dad, you better appreciate those birthday gifts!!! :)

Comfort Food

For most of us, comfort food makes us feel better when we are under the weather. I am no exception. Much to my demise I often find myself ravenously hungry whilst ill instead of a person who feels so sick she can't eat. I have wished upon wish to be that person, but it never pans out. So, I made a childhood favorite for lunch. A peanut butter and banana sandwich drizzled lightly with honey. Ta-da!And of course, the ever-present food supervisor is on the scene.He's a good boy. He knows to stay away from my sammich! And of course I give in and give him a corner of the crust at the end. Good things come to those who wait!

Holiday BBQs = fire! And fire scalded Peeps.
And dogs.
And forgetting that you brought a vat of potato salad until AFTER everyone had eaten. Yeah. I'm retarded.

This Was My Night. What Did You Do?

What could be better than hanging out with an adorable toddler?
Wait. Did that say...Yeah, it most certainly did. That explains the look of confusion on her face.
Accident? Me thinks not, Baby Can Read!!!!!

Waterfalls. Wonderfalls.

Okay, so I was reading that water is a fantastic metabolic booster, right? I am going to attempt to drink 100 oz. of water a day. The thought alone makes me ill.

I Just Like It.

For some reason I really like this three year old green shirt. I don't really know why. I have only been to Austin the one time (I did really like it) and have no particular attachment to the place on the shirt or any experience whilst in that particular city. I just really like the shirt and wear it so much that I found a tiny hole toward the bottom the other day. This does not deter me from wearing it. Cracked white print and all.

Pretend it's still technically Saturday.

Dude. My friend Michelle and I had a night. A night of hilarity and no less than four venue changes in about as many hours. This was the wrap up.

Man, I Suck.

Okay, so I guess the "posting every day" proclamation was a bit too ambitious for the likes of me. But I really am trying to, I swear! We had a new cable/interweb/digital phone install all day yesterday and then I had plans until after midnight last night, that's my excuse! So, I give you two shots. :)

Irony. And no, that mug was not filled with wussie Breakfast Blend. I had just destroyed the last of my Espresso and only had this weak bag to stand in for a prop.And a bonus Blue Heron at lovely Lake Lewisville. Really, it's a horror of a lake that seems to be the local death trap once the temp warms up and stupid people with no business being on a boat go out and get wasted and fall overboard. Or hit other boats/waterskiers. Water safety, people.

Love Your Mom!

Okay, so technically it's Monday, but to me it's still Sunday night, so whatever. It was all about Mom today, so I give you a description of the dinner I made for her tonight. I was tired after making gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner, so I just wanted to forego the photo and sit down! For those who want to know, the gastronomical treat consisted of panko and parmesan crusted tilapia with a tomato cream basil sauce, risotto with mushrooms and pine nuts, and asparagus in a clarified butter sauce. It was quite delectable if I do say so myself. :)

And now I give you today's photos... Even though she might be crazy:
She'll always be my beautiful Mommy. I love you, Mom!

Photo #2

So, I'm cheating a little and am putting up a photo from San Francisco that I took at the end of March. I can't help it... A cute toddler chasing a pigeon in Ghirardelli Square? C'mon. I had no choice.

A Picture A Day Keeps The Boredom Away?

So, I'm thinking of posting a picture a day on here. Just whatever picture I take during the day and slapping it on here. Probably without explanation. Unless it needs one. And since I can't seem to ever shut up (even on here), there will probably be an explanation. I just don't want anyone getting their hopes up...

So, I give you Photo #1. Sans commentary. Suck on that.
