Protecting and Serving

Last night when Stu got home he found this note on our banister:

(You're neighbor called because your garage door was open, she thought someone may have broken into your house. We made entry and did not see anything out of place. Any questions you can call me. Deputy Prettyman S.L. Co. S.O.)

I can just see them now, cruising through our house in stealth mode, guns drawn. I hope they loved my sweaty bra I wore to the gym yesterday morning just laying on the floor for all to see. Stuart was less than thrilled. Now we have to start locking the garage door into the house.

That's service and protection at it's best. I'm not sure which neighbor called but I am glad that they are looking out for us.

And in case you were wondering, they really do search behind the shower curtain. And in EVERY closet. Creeeeeeeeeeppppppyyyyy.

29 and Feelin' Fine

Yesterday Stuart turned the big two niner. He wasn't too depressed. I took him and 6 of our friends to the Bee's game. We had a great time. He got lots of great gifts too. Some friends gave him a few boxes of golf balls and tees which he loved. He also got a boob beer bong. Who doesn't need one of those !!!

The game was lots of fun and went into 3 extra innings. Next year for the big 3-0 I'm thinking we should go to Vegas.

Take home the gold...

With your mad cheering skills. Beijing is leaving no loose ends when it comes to the Olympics. They have created an official cheer for the 2008 Summer Games. Apparently they dont want any unruly cheer-bots out there going bonkers. According to the BBC "A committee official said the simple chants and gestures were designed to help spectators cheer for their favourite athletes in a smooth, civilized manner."

It goes as follows (everyone together now!)

1.Clap two times while chanting "Olympics!"
2. Hands in fists with thumbs up, arms extended upward while chanting "Let's Go!"
3. Clap two times while chanting "China"
4. Raise hands up and punch the air while chanting "Let's Go!"

Anyone seen deviating from this cheer will be banned from the country. Ok not really. But I know what you're thinking "what if I wanna say "USA" in place of China? What are they going to do ??" Good news. The phrase "China" can be replaced with your own personal expression, say "Go Phelps!" or "Stick IT!".

I will personally be cheering "We're from America couldn;t be prouder! Stand up and Shout! And Shout a little LOUDER!!!" ( this will take place in our living room starting 8-8-08)

Exploring the Wild

Booker T. had her first out door excursion. Being an inside bunn she wasn't so sure about the great outdoors. But after a while she got excited. Please take notice of her diva leash. Those zebra stripes look great on her.
Here are some photos from her big day out:

Hey Aunt Katchie check out my sweet mullet. I've been jammin to Guns N' Roses all day so it is extra fluffy.

Look at these teeth. I will use them if I have to. I'm just sayin', stay back mmmkay.

I like dee green grass mmmkay.

What are you looking at?

I wish I had this......

If I had one I would die ! Die die!!! I love them. I want 100 of them!
These decoupage plates by John Derian are absolutely fabulous.

Sepia Rabbit $48

Swift Swallow $48

Nest $48

Thanks to my current favorite read Pioneer Woman for bringing these to my attention. They will be mine. Oh yes. They will be mine.

Ma Ma Ma Meeeee so Tired!

Honestly I am still exhausted from the Vegas trip. It was so much fun, but when you only sleep 6 hours in 2 days you pay for it later. I have a really awesome cold. Apparently being sick is really populer right now. As long as I dont have a repeat of the fainting strep throatasaurs flu I should be fine. I'm only getting one shot in my butt per year.

This photo pretty much sums up our Vegas trip:

This one may help clarify some details also:

Needless to say we had a real real good time.

I decided I;m going to sell some stuff on Ebay. Everybody is doing it. So I guess I should too. Could you let me know when it's time to jump off the bridge. I'm selling my all time favorite boots that I have only worn once. How can that be! you ask ? Well I bought them right before I found out about my foot problem. So I can't really wear them. Believe me. I tried to wear them. I tried to tough it out but it was putting so much pressure on my 5th metatarsal that I couldn't even stand. Sad sad sad. I'm also selling these pants because they are Juicy and I thought that someone would buy. I'll let you know how it goes.

Yeah. That just happened. That is how you dance to "Eye of the Tiger"

Ready Boots?

She doesn't like mud! Give her a break!

This little piggy hates mud. Really hates it. Her owners put their mini Wellie pencil holders to good use. Honestly. Could that be any cuter?? Doubts it.

See Cinderella on CNN Video (Yeah, thats right. Her name is Cinderella)

Sometimes I get real pissed....

Seriously. I do. I feel like it is really my own fault. Katchie could probably agree with me on this, but I get so angry when I read KSL Classifieds or Craigslist posting for pets. Does no one think ahead or do research before purchasing/adopting a pet ?

I'm just so irritated by people who get a pet and then 3 months later are getting rid of it because "I'm moving and I can't take my pet" or "We don't give he/she the attention they deserve." Seriously. That is totally irresponsible! If you are not in a stable place in your life you should not have a pet. If you can't give that pet the love and attention it deserves you should not have a pet.

If you want to be a responsible pet owner do your research prior to purchasing. Know what your animal needs to live a healthy happy life. Think about what your future plans entail before adopting a pet.

I just had to get that out there. Mostly because when I see those cute little cuddle faces on those posting I just want to adopt them all.

Sorry about the ranting and raving, I was just fed up. (I've also been watching a lot of Animal Police on Animal Planet.) Sometimes I get real pissed.

Save a life. Adopt a pet!
Here are a list of local adoption agencies/rescues that have animals who need homes:
Best Friends
Utah Human Society
Ching Farm Rescue and Sanctuary
Pet Samaritan Fund
Utah Rabbit Rescue
Click here for a complete listing of Animal Rescues in Utah.

As for me, I will try to refrain from checking those postings until we are able to have another pet. Sorry for bitchin'

And we're back!!

We went to Tuscon for the weekend. Stu had to go for business and so, being married people and all, I met him there on Friday. Turns out it is a desert. Not one of these half-assed "Utah is a desert" but a full on sweat your ass off on a daily basis, no water, no trees, no grass, our front yard is rocks kind of deserts. It was serious.

We stayed at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. GORGEOUS! Loved the room, the giant bath tub and the balcony. I wish I would have thought ahaed and brought some bubble bath. The tub was HUGE! Thanks to Walgreen's I settled for some Mr. Bubble.

We had a great time. Here are some photos:

Ripply Cactus, Believe it or Not!

Owns it.
