Thursday Thoughts

Not too much to report today, but here’s a few things that have been rolling around in my head.

1. I have about 8,000 things that are coming up the next few months, but right now I’m in an in-between stage where I have essentially nothing to do. Well, I have things to do, but nothing that’s really exciting or time-consuming. It’s making me a little antsy, but I’m trying to cherish the slow days while I have them. I know I’ll miss them when the crazy days come next month!

2. T-Swift’s new song is catchy, but please enjoy my rewritten lyrics. (Do not read if you want to be able to listen to that song with a straight face ever again.)

‘Cause this pancake isn’t cake cake cake cake cake
But it tastes really great great great great great
Just gotta stuff my face face face face face
Gotta eat it all, eat it all.
And this pizza’s going down down down down down
Gonna gain another pound pound pound pound pound
Bring out another round round round round round
Gotta eat it all, eat it all.
So I’ll keep feeeeasting, can’t stop, won’t stop eaaaaating, it’s like I need this feeding, and it’s gonna be alright.

You’re welcome. Yes, I’m hungry too.

3. 26 days until I’m on my way to Florida! 90 days until we feast at Thanksgiving! 118 days until Christmas! Just in case you were wondering.

4. This morning, Jack asked to go outside. He walked in circles for 7 minutes, desperately tried to escape the leash to chase a rabbit, and then he didn’t go to the bathroom. I acquired 3 mosquito bites. I just bragged on him in yesterday’s post, but today we’re not friends. :-P

5. Pinterest is the best.

Jacker Boy

I know National Dog Day was yesterday, but let’s pretend I posted this on time. ;) I actually had this post started and saved in my drafts before I knew about National Dog Day, but figured it was fitting now. Our handsome pup has been incredibly well-behaved lately, and I’m relishing in it. :D I remember his crazy puppy days, and I am THANKING GOD ALMIGHTY for how wonderful he is now. ;)

Let’s fawn over his puppy cuteness, shall we?

When we  picked him up (all the way in Breckenridge, Texas), we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. ;)

He quickly became the star of all our photo shoots.

And I think he was a little alarmed at first by how much I tried to snuggle him.

His ears brought us so much entertainment.

Captain Jack Sparrow. That’s got to be the best pirate I’ve ever seen.

His snuggling skills are legend.

And he’s become quite the little dog model.

Two years flew right by, but I still see puppy in that face. :)

We sure do love you, little monster. Let’s go snuggle and take a nap. ;)

End of Summer Fun

It’s hard to believe we’ll be saying goodbye to August next week! As ready as I am for September and the fair and all things autumn, I have to admit I’m still a little sad to see the summer go. We had some of our favorite people over for pancakes and water balloons this weekend to have one more summer get-together before fall hits. :)

I thought Jack would be afraid of the water balloons, but he quickly thought they were toys to catch. ;)

You can barely see the remnants of a popped water balloon here, but doesn’t he look like a kangaroo in this picture?? Hahaha.

In other recent news, we had a visit from Wormy, and Jackers watched some Netflix with us. :)

And we also had a visit from Kristi Belle. :)

Jack was being extra snuggly and charming for his Aunt Kristi. ;)

Hubs took me out for a lovely Papa Angelo’s feast, because we eat healthy all week and happy all weekend. ;)

Hope you all had a summery, fun-filled weekend too. :) Have a happy Monday!
