FUN Friday

Happy Friday everyone! Just popping in to keep everyone on their toes. Alex was kind enough to feature me as his 'G' for the blogfest! How COOL is that?!? I'm very flattered and super excited to welcome new people to my blog!

Did you know that dogs can snore?

Lily snores REALLY loud!
Here's what she looks like when she's snoring:

And when she's snoring with a friend:

And when she's sleeping with her sister
(they both snore, only she really drowns out Wednesday):

I heart Stephen Colbert. He and his BFF (for six months), Jimmy Fallon, had a bet. Colbert lost so he had to perform Rebecca Black's Friday on Late Night. Here it is (especially for Abby Minard, who introduced me to the song in the first place):

I was teaching a 3rd Grade Class City Wildlife. When I finished, I opened it up for questions. The first question?

Boy: Are you married?
Me: Yes.
Boy: (pause) How married?
Me: Very, very married.
Boy: (complete with an aw shucks expression and arm movement) Aw, man!

I couldn't bring myself to ask 'why'. I turned my back to take another question, but he continued.

Boy: Because my dad really likes blondes. A lot. And you seem super cool.
Me: Thank you.
Boy: You're his type. Blonde and he likes his women curvy. (he stands up and waves his arms for curvy - curvier than I am)
Teacher: Miguel! We have had this conversation about inappropriate questions and gestures before.
Boy: (whiney) I'm just looking for a new stepmom.
Teacher: ENOUGH!

I leave you with this adorable video of a cat grooming a puppy:

We'll be spending the weekend indoors with the rain that is coming - this means I just might finish this round of rewrites! I've got Saturday afternoon Skype Crit Group and then we're hosting Game Night at our place with about 11 guests!

What about you - any fun weekend plans?


  1. awwwww the video is so sweet. I popped over from Alex :) Lovely blog you have here! :)

  2. I love your kid stories!

    I can just picture him demonstrating an hourglass figure... TOO FUNNY.

  3. I love how adorable your posts always are. They never fail to make me smile.

    Boy, didn't you just break his heart! ;)

  4. Love that bulldog on the right, with the tongue. Quite the snore, wow!

    Lily is so adorable when she sleeps! I love the first picture where she fell asleep with her little bone.

    I agree - Stephen Colbert rocks. Love him.

    Another fabulous Fun Friday! :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Since Miguel is part of the package I'm assuming the dad must do *something* right. The 'I just want a new stepmom' comment is too cute. Have fun at your game night (I want one!).
    - Sophia.

  6. Oh.My.God. That Colbert/Fallon video was hilarious! I laughed myself right off my chair!! And now I have that song in my head. Again!! :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  11. Happy to feature you! I like coming here. Our dogs snored. And like your Lily, it was more fun to snore with a friend.

  12. I do know a bit about dogs snoring, my dog snores. Your dogs are very cute. Kids just say the darnedest things don't they? I'm your newest follower. =)

  13. OMG, too cute! I love the kid who asked if you were married.

  14. I did know that dogs could snore--because mine does!

    And how funny was that kid? Oh man. That was hysterical.

  15. That story is adorably hilarious. I can visualize the whole thing. He's quite loyal to his dad.
    Found you through Alex. I'm glad I did!

  16. What a refreshing and entertaining blog! I found you through Alex too and I love this blog! I'm doing the A-Z challenge, but I started too late to be officially 'in'. Are you doing that too? peace! ~ eve

  17. Ha! I said on my blog that I was coming here, but I've already been. *snort* Oviously I have good taste. *winks*

  18. I love it when kids say cute stuff like that. My son told the other night he has a crush on me. :)

  19. Your videos are too cute, and your pictures are wonderful. Nice blog.

    I really commend you for your passion. While I love animals myself, I don't quite possess the same vigor as you. Keep up the excellent work!
