1st grade boy: If I had a kid I would sell it for $1000!
2nd grade boy: If I had a kid I would trade it for a German Shepherd!!
HA! I know the feeling!
SO I had to hunt down his teacher and share the conversation. After recounting the hilarity she said, Oh my god that kid is obsessed with German Shepherds!
Apparently that's all he can talk about, which made me laugh even more because I originally thought he was being random.
P.S. The photo above was taken right after we got Captain Skippyjon Jones in 2009. He's just finished taming my parents' German Shepherd puppies, Cesar and Milan.

P.S. The Somalian owl stamps came from here.
The Pac Man Food Pyramid is by Andrew Heath and I think it would look awesome in our kitchen.

I read An Inconvenient Elephant by Judy Reene Singer in 2010 and loved her little quips. I picked up Horseplay because she wrote it and I like reading stories where people ride horses so I can relive my childhood through literature.
In this story Judy Van Brunt leaves her cheating husband and moves to a horse farm in North Carolina where she has secured a job as a groom. She rides horses, makes new friends, and solves a mystery. By the end of the story she even has a new man. Isn't life easy?
The author made me laugh out loud every once in awhile, and it's quotes like these that make the plot predictability worthwhile:
Men are like horses. If they're even-tempered and sweet, you stay on for the ride. If they buck around, you get off before you get hurt.
Normally, I would trust a new horse on trails about as much as I would trust myself in a Godiva chocolate shop.
Fulfilling my romance requirement for The Eclectic Reader Challenge was a great excuse to pick up this light summer read. Chick lit takes up less and less of my reading time as the years progress, but it's nice to revisit every once in awhile.

That's a picture of Corey's grandma with Caprica Six. Her housecoat is way cuter than Fabio's in my opinion.
I can't wait to watch the finale tonight! Based on last week's preview Fabio's collection is my least favorite.

I've never had the pleasure of attending a field hockey game, so I googled field hockey uniforms and discovered there is a Field Hockey Smurf. There really is a Smurf for everyone.

This was the episode when I started hating Ven because he was so mean to his client. How dare anyone ask him to design a dress for someone bigger than a size 2! I thought it was pretty ironic considering he's a big guy himself. Then when his sister showed up in a later episode I thought she seemed about the same size as his client. I would love to know what his sister thought of his sizeist comments.

The End finds the Baudelaire orphans on an uncharted island. I really liked reading their tale as they once again use their ingenuity, knowledge, teeth, and cooking skills to deal with a new dilemma. As I read it I began to hope...can it be that the Baudelaire orphans find peace on a lonely island? I won't spoil it for people who are reading or are going to read the Series, but I can tell you it's a fitting Lemony Snicket ending.
This book allows me to check the Young Adult genre off of my Eclectic Reader Challenge list.

All joking aside, whatever your reasoning for choosing a candidate, just vote!
P.S. The title of my post is one of Snoop's tweets. Presumably.

Me: My husband and I went to a Dbacks game on Sunday.
Straight Faced Little Girl: I used to play for the Dbacks.
Haha! Must keep a straight face!
When I reported the news to Corey he said I should have told her I was proud she had decided to pursue her education.

This was my favorite music video for a long time!
P.S. Here is Nerd Nest's week 25.
