Oh Friday, how I wish I didn’t live for you to get here week after uneventful work week!
Another Pup Bites the Dust
Ben was in the backyard playing fetch with the pups. He decided to throw the ball up in the air between Cali & Layla, which resulted in one of those slow-mo football tackling scenes that they replay over & over because one of the players got a concussion. Layla ended up with the tennis ball & Cali ended up with a bit tongue & a chunk out of her nose. Ben proceeded to do the “finger eye test” & Cali was fine, but I don’t think we’ll be signing her up for puppy football anytime soon.
So…last weekend our church decided to tack on a banana pudding contest to our annual ice cream social. I made the HUGE mistake of participating - entering a banana pudding contest in the south, what was I thinking?! We called our good friend Justin who lives in FL for his top secret recipe & it turned out amazing! Unfortunately, there were at least 50 other “fancy” banana puddings staring me in the face when we arrived & alas, I didn’t stand a chance.
I have offered to go on a TV diet upon the return of all the new shows this fall because A) It sucks up WAY too much of my time & B) I hate watching shows that Ben won’t watch with me. Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, The Bachelor, 90210, Survivor, Grey’s Anatomy & Ghost Whisperer are all on the chopping block. The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, LOST, Scrubs, The Office & 30 Rock are still being negotiated. We’ll see how this pans out when we add college football to the mix.
My Office Quote of the Week
“I reckon I shouldn’t ever try to pick up a woman that I can’t PICK UP.” (I am seriously not making this stuff up people.)
Well, let the out of town weekends begin…we’ll be camping in TX this weekend (yes, we’re insane for camping in hot, humid TX in Aug), going to MO next weekend to celebrate my bday w/ the fam & then off to a yet to be determined destination anniversary weekend getaway!
