Who needs an alarm clock when you have a 90 pound mouth-breather?

In a previous post I was super excited because in theory I get to sleep in this week.  Turns out that’s not exactly the case.  When I stay at my mom’s house my dog, Gus, sleeps in my room.  He’s an English Creme Golden Retriever, and he’s quite possibly the cutest thing on the face of the planet…..except when it’s 6:09 AM and he’s breathing in my face.

I guess I can’t complain too much.  He doesn’t chew on anything or jump on me to wake me up.  He just gets as close as physically possible to my face and stares and breathes.   He’s really is the most polite creeper dog I’ve ever met.

Here’s some bonus pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Think on These Things

So I’ve been in Tennessee for the past week because we got a week off for the holiday.  One of the things I decided to do was take a bunch of the old newspaper articles my grandma cut out and put them on my wall.

As you can see they’re all from a column “Think on These Things.”  I just used Modge Podge and a canvas.  I don’t know if those are the best materials though, because they kind of started to wrinkle up.  I don’t know how many articles I used for this, but I still of tons more to do something else with if I so choose.

Here are two of them for you to think on:

Happiness Embodied

Yesterday my brother and I flew into Nashville, Tennessee to stay with our mom for the week.  Every time we come we have to stop at a cupcake place called Gigi’s Cupcakes.  I usually get the most chocolatey chocolate cupcakes I can find, but since it’s been so hot I wanted something fruity.

I give you, the White Chocolate Raspberry Frappe cupcake.  It has white chocolate chips on the inside and wonderfully delightful raspberry icing and toping on the outside.  This is the happy life.

(Just a side note, one of the tags WordPress generated for this post was “Race and ethnicity in the United States Census”.  Haha!  I’ve always identified myself as being “white chocolate”, but I didn’t know it had officially made it onto the US census!)
