We used to be American Idol watchers. This year we decided it's just too much of a time commitment, so we quit watching it. It really was quite liberating. What ever shall we do with all the spare time we now have? I know! We will reminisce by looking at pictures of the times we did watch it. This picture was obviously taken during the season that Ellen was a judge. I don't remember why I hit the info button on the remote - I already knew what I was watching. I was glad I did, though. Someone at Dish Network was having fun that day!
And by the way, I'd like to know why American Idol is rated PG-13!

Where'd I go? Why did I abandon my blog for so long? I got distracted! You know how it is. I'd think "I need to post on my blog". Then I would start doing something else and forget. I had a lot going on. Here's a picture of me just a couple of months ago:
That was taken on January 31st. Then on March 1st he arrived! It was so exciting to welcome our little Doodle Bug into the world!
He is a month old today. Things are starting to settle down a little. I've kind of gotten the hang of keeping up with everything around the house while taking care of the Doodle Bug. I'm not saying we don't have our moments here, but for the most part, things are under control. We've been taking lots of pictures, so you can expect to be seeing a lot of our Doodle Bug here. Hopefully I'll get around to posting some of the other gazillion things I have pictures all ready for, but we'll just have to wait and see!

We have a room in our house that we call the "Fun Room". It is where we have the desktop computers (though we usually use laptops) and books, and we have always intended to put our Pez collection in there. Despite the fact that we call it the "Fun Room", it has been somewhat less than fun in the 5 1/2 years that we've lived here because it is the only room in the house that we never really got around to doing anything with. The proof is in the pudding (I have always wanted an excuse to say that!):
See? Less than fantastic. Not so fun. A bit embarrassing actually, and it also happened to be the room that people saw first when they came into our house, since it was right inside the front door. A little while back we got the hankering to fix it up. We chose a nice buttery yellow color for the walls and picked up some new bookshelves. My hubby went and got some shelves to put the Pez on. I must say, the "Fun Room" is much more fun now than it used to be!
Much more fun now, don't you think? And that's not all the Pez. We have a lot more that we just didn't have enough stands for. Once we get more stands, we'll put those out too!

We went to a fancy fund raising event this past weekend where we noticed something that was just a bit off. Do you see it?
In case you didn't see it, here's a more closeup shot. I really don't know how this gentleman didn't feel it when he was tucking in his shirt. That's something I'm pretty sure I wouldn't miss. Or perhaps he is just proud that he has a new pair of shorts?
And here we are with one of the celebrity guests in attendance - Kinky Friedman! Oh, and there's nothing wrong with this one, I just thought I'd add it in for fun.

I had to run in the Walgreen's to pick something up the other day. As I walked across the front of the store, this fantastic little dog bed caught my eye. It was a sock monkey! Not that we had particularly been looking for a sock monkey bed for her, or any new bed for that matter, but it was too cute not to investigate. I spent a good couple of minutes checking out the sock monkey bed. It was only $13 (cleverly disguised as $12.99), but I just couldn't decide whether she needed it or not. After a couple of minutes I went on my way and left the sock monkey bed.
By the time I got in the car, I was already regretting my decision to leave without the precious little monkey bed. Had I made a mistake? When I got home and saw our poor neglected little Zoey I knew I was going to have to go back and fetch her a new bed. Never mind the bed she already had, complete with three blankets of her own, and her special big fluffy pillow that I made for her. They're not enough! So I returned to the Walgreen's for a special sock monkey for our pampered puppy.
How can you say no to this face?
Zoey loves her new bed!
She napped in it all day after I brought it home.
Of course, now I am going to have to get her a blanket that matches her new bed.
