FUN Fridays

My mom is coming to visit tomorrow! She'll be helping out with our fundraiser on Saturday. It's always FUN when mom comes to town. Lily gets excited to see her. She hikes with us. We get some shopping in. You still need Mom Time, even when you get older.

When she arrives late Friday afternoon, we'll go for coffee, then a bit of shopping, then Indian food! Saturday will be the Paws and Learn Annual Hike Fundraiser followed by a nice Italian dinner and a movie on Saturday night! Sunday morning brunch, then she'll head back to San Diego again.

In honor of Moms everywhere, and tying in with our FUN Friday, here is a video that I have seen numerous times, but still laugh...

This is Lily giving kisses to our neighbor's Jack Chi (jack russell, chihuahua mix).

And now for our comedy portion of FUN Friday!

The funny thing about this bit by Bill Burr is that I guarantee you that The Hubster felt the same way when I came home with Lily. Now? He tells everyone she's the best dog he's ever had. Lily doesn't have much pit in her (she's 80 pounds - 40 pounds too big to be an American Pit Bull Terrier), but she can still clear the sidewalk!

And what is it that makes kids with accents so adorable??

What are YOUR FUN plans for the weekend?

P.S. - I just noticed that I'm almost at 100 followers! When I hit it, I will have a FUN giveaway so stay tuned for that!!


  1. Work on my writing is the huge fun plan I have for my weekend. What's not fun about tormenting certain characters who've gotten a little too smug about their own personal safety?

  2. Sounds like a great weekend!

    The only *fun* thing I'll be doing is seeing Back to the Future in the theater on Saturday. Been looking forward to it for a long time.

  3. I love the videos, did you ask why? well because I said so!
    Fun this weekend? maybe my toddler will let me sleep in a bit before he demands his early morning hot cocoa, I get story ideas in my head when am in REM

  4. Have a great time with your mom! And I LOVE that mom video - excellent!

  5. Love those videos!! Happy Friday to you!
    This fun Friday is dedicated to Halloween shopping and door shopping! That is, when I rip myself away from the computer and actually get ready...

  6. Jeffrey - that made me laugh into my morning coffee! Sounds like a plan! We can't ever let our characters get too comfy.

    Liz - I remember you posting about it when they announced it was coming out. Didn't you buy tickets ahead of time? I can't believe it's already here! Enjoy!!

    Joanna - Here's to hoping you get some good ideas in REM sleep!

    Ishta - Isn't that the best?! It never gets old for me. It's so funny because we've heard our mother say those phrases or said them ourselves (or both!).

    Colene - Happy shopping! We've been drizzling for over a week now so I haven't been able to get the tombstones up in the yard or the skeletons crawling out of the dirt/grass because there are just too many puddles. :-( I'm hoping for a cool, dry spell next week!

  7. lol! I love that mom overture. I've heard it before--and you're right. Mom time is so great. Have fun! :o)

  8. Awe have fun with your mom! I love mom time. Great videos!!!

  9. Wow you really are climbing to 100!!!

    Have a ball with your mom! I look forward to hearing all the fun you had!!!

  10. Beautiful Jennie. Look at you and your 90 followers. I'm gone for a few months, and you have flown far into the world of savvy blogging. :) I miss you. Jason was sick; still is. It knocks us out, but it may yet be manageable, and I miss writing. And you.
