Puppy in the Pond

Just a quick post before I post  today’s events. I just have to quickly share this hilarious story of what happened on Saturday.

So Saturday was my Nana’s birthday. We all went to my Aunt’s house to have dinner and cake. My Aunt lives out in the country. She has barn, chickens, and a pond, just like a house in the country should.

Anywho, that is the setting of the story. This is where it gets interesting. We decided to bring Sophie the cityn dog with us. My aunt has a Labrador (Hunter) and a cat (Miss Kitty).  We were so curious to see what Sophie would do with another dog (she has never really seen another dog before)

So we bring her over and she is totally a normal puppy. she tries to play with Hunter, but he is either afraid of her or getting to old ot play. We tried to keep Miss Kitty away.

W bring Sophie outside so she can run around and go the bathroom. I didn’t see any need to put a leash on her since she is always by myside.  My uncle and cousin were fishing and sophie was having fun watching them and tryingto eat their hot dog bait.

After that we take her torwards the barn so she can visit the chickens. The out of no where a huge goose comes flying down. Sophie takes off after it towards the barn. You might be able to figure out what happened next by the title. I was sure she was going to stop (she hates the bath), but SHE JUMPED RIGHT IN!!!! My 3 lb puppy is in the pond with  a big old goose! My mom and I started to scream.  Sophie went under for like 1 second but it flet like eternity. She popped back up and swam back to us. I didn’t know she could swim.

She was dripping wet and it was only 45 degrees outside. My uncle and cousin were laughing hysterically. Did I mention that she was wearing her hand knit sweater?!

It had to be one of the funniest things EVER! I swear she thinks she is a great dane.  I could not believe she jumped into the pond. That is Sophie’s personality though.  I’m not sure she’ll be allowed to run around their yard without a leash next time.

10. You have the most sweetest and quirkiest personality and temperament!

So the next time I’m yelling “SOPHIE!!!!” becasue she’s trying to chew the wall and I have to take some Tylenol, I’ll have this to read and remind me why I love her so darn much!

Pink and Green Obsession

I am a girl of many obsessions. Knitting, The Beatles, yarn, Ravelry, Cleveland Indians, Sophie, Twilight, etc. But one of my biggest obsession that has grown over the years is my obsession with green and pink.

preppysox2

I call these my preppy socks. I had to hand dye the yarn becasue I could not find and pink and green sock yarn! I don’t think I’ve ever seen pink and green yarn in any weight! I’m gonna have to write a letter to someone about this national issue!

pinkandgreencard

Pink and green birthaday card from my mom. Nobody knows me better!

pinkand-greennotebook

Notebook, tin, mascara. Getting tired of seeing pink and green yet?

pinkandgreenpadpaper

This is my all time favorite find. It was $1 at target! How can something so small and so cheap make me soo happy?. It sits on my desk so when I need something to pick me up, I just look at this. I haven’t even taken it out of the wrapper. It’s too cute!

pinkandgrenflower

Pink and green flowers.  Let’s continue…

Okay,  so you had to know that Sophie would be somewhere in this post (like always).

greenandpinkbox

I had this dilemma that I had all these trinkets and cards that were really important to me. I didn’t want to put them out because it makes the room look cluttered and I didn’t have the strength to throw them out. So I found this adorable box at Old Time Pottery, so when I have things that are important to me (birthday cards, baseball tickets, postcards) I just throw them in this box. Then every so often I go throw the box and reminisce. It makes me happy 🙂

pinkandgreenitems

This is getting ridiculous now!

When I walk into a store and I find something that’s pink and green it feels like I found gold. I can’t help it I’m addicted! Oh ya, another example of my obsession with pink and green is my blog theme :/

Psych

As you might be able to tell from the last post, I LOVE Psych. In case you don’t know what the show is, it’s a television show on USA about a fake psychic detective. The main character, Shawn, is hyper observational and with this skill he pretends to be a psychic and works at the Santa Barbara Police Department. Him and his hilarious sidekick Gus, go around and solve crimes and be goofy. In my opinion these two are the best duo in TV history (sorry Fred and Ethel).

I love watching this show. It’s lighthearted, but incredibly hilarious. There are soo many catch phrases that come from this show (Thundercats Ho!). It’s not vulgar (like some comedies and crime shows can be).  It breaks all TV show barriers.

My brother and I are always quoting and talking about the show. Our all time favorite episode is “American Duos”. Our all time favorite scene from our all time favorite episode is this (this scene makes me “liz” (30 Rock quote from last night))

The video from my last post is also from this episode. It is their try out for the American Idol spoof TV show.

For my birthday this year Gavin (my brother) got me the greatest gift ever!

The first picture is the outside of the card and the second picture is the inside of the card that he redid on the computer.  It originally said a “birthday potty” on the inside. I like this a whole bunch better! THe other thing he gave me was :

pineapple-001

If you watch the show, you know what the pineapple means.

Can’t wait for the new season to start this summer!

Shout, shout, let it all out!
