they have a cousin!
Meet Rocky Bobo, my baby sister's little baby! My girls have their first cousin. I tell them that Rocky Bobo is their cousin and they said no because he is a dog. So then we settled on dousin. Dog + cousin, get it?!! Sounds like dozen. The girls were instantly smitten and I am not a dog person (or a pet person) and I was instantly smitten as well. Rocky Bobo has slept on the big girls' laps and got lots of cuddling. Good thing he likes to cuddle.

Soulie cried the moment she met him. Soul hates stuffed animals. Seriously. She didn't even like Minnie Mouse at first, so we knew her first meeting with Rocky Bobo was going to be hilarious (for us) and that she would freak out. We got it on camera, just so you know. It is that funny (for us). Don't worry, she is not emotionally scarred for life. She'll laugh at it one day. By the end of the day, she did pet him twice. See, she's fine.

The girls being so cute with him, made me want to get them a puppy. True even said she would take care of the poop. Somehow, I seriously doubt that seeing how it takes her 2 hours to clean her room in which I would have been done in 5 minutes. I told them when the whole house has wood floors, I will think about it. The key is... the whole house. That means every bit of flooring. I don't think we will ever have the whole house in wood anytime soon, so I am pretty much safe. Until then, we will love Rocky Bobo just like he is our own, but good thing I don't have to clean his poop, that's my sister's job!

This week's learned and links...

- Brain Pop Jr. a cool learning resource.

- Glow is starting to get her legs under her and looks like crawling is coming soon.

- Soul must wear the same 2 skirts everyday. Yes, together.

- Ben is really a keeper. He surprised me with something fantastic this week. Dude really knows how to romance this girl!

- I have the world's roughest hands. I am bad at moisturizing.

- Obsessed with Tumbleweeds glasses. No joke. One of a kind amazing! I need a pair of sunglasses, but not sure if I am cool enough to pull off these cool shades.

- This is important. When you blog, have integrity. Be real, be honest, and give credit when it is due.

- I need a phone. I have been phone-less for two weeks and don't have a land line. I lost it and can't find it and haven't done a darn thing about it. My mom complains I don't call her anymore and so does this gal.

- Got some vintage goodies coming in from this shop. So excited to get them!

- I like bloggers new way of responding to comments. Thank you blogger!

- In search for the perfect denim dress. Have any good suggestions?

- And still want these shoes. I think I am secretly hoping someone will just happily gift them to me as a "just because". I know, I'm silly. And just so you know, I am a size 6. *wink*

- Random fact about me. I love action and suspense movies! I am guy when it comes to movies. Romance and comedies are last on my list. I just watch it when I am bored. Now, if you do romance with thrilling action and suspense, then I may just reconsider.

Tonight is movie night over here and mine and Ben's movie better involve some car crashes and explosions! What are your plans?


  1. I wasn't a pet person either and then we got our dog for my son (he is an only child) and it took me about a year to understand him! The poo picking up is actually a minor detail, I struggled with the shredding of my garden and destroying anything in sight! Thankfully our dog is an outside dog so nothing inside got destroyed, but my garden wound up a mess. I love him now, but it did take me awhile.

  2. right now i am waiting for my man to pick up a movie at redbox and some gyros for dinner.
    i am so not a dog person and we do have hardwood (or tile) throughout the house. but we are getting a hamster for the almost 7yo this weekend. :)
    my 2yo wears a greek fisherman hat 24 hours a day - yes, even when asleep. it is too cute.
    also, my favorite movies are action and suspense as well. but we will be watching hugo tonight. enjoy your date night in!

  3. Ruby, simply look for those shoes, but elsewhere with same style, try h&m, urban outfitters.
    You'll find them!

    1. if you find them, let me know! these are the only other similar ones but slightly cheaper: would gladly take those too!

  4. i always feel im real in my posts - lately they are as honest as ever. what movie did you watch? i worked tonight - tomorrow day trip :) have a nice weekend. oh the puppy is so adorable!

  5. i have the world's roughest hands. moisturizing doesn't help me one bit. it's genetic. i can thank my dad's mom for that one.

    those shoes are tdf! maybe ben has those shoes up his sleeve (or in the baby sling, haha!)

    let me know when you get your phone! :)

    getting a dog would be like a fifth child... you ready for another? haha!

  6. Ooh, I love your movie preferences! I am totally addicted to sports-inspirational movies, and I'm probably going to watch something like "Miracle" tonight :)

  7. I didn't think I was a denimdress kind of girl, until I saw this chambray one at Old Navy.

    It looks really cute on, and plus it's on the lighter-weight side, and super affordable!

    1. rebekah- that is definitely cute and wishlisted too!

  8. They should rent pets, so you could have them once in a while before making a full decision!

    1. a rental period... clever! that would really help people decide!

  9. is the be true, give credit comment directed at a certain bleubird? i noticed she didn't credit/link to you when i saw the house cushions on her blog the other day - not cool.
    i like your authenticity, i can feel it through your blog. i don't get that from her.
    thanks for sharing with us,

  10. Awww would love to see the video of Soul meeting her dousin for the first time! So in love with your blog, just spent the past hour looking through past posts! <3

    1. thanks sha mar! will think about that video... some people may think i am too cruel! ;)

  11. denim dress:

    1. ooh! like that one a lot, but not in the price range. if you see any other kinds, do share!

  12. Love your blog, and love your comment..."This is important. When you blog, have integrity. Be real, be honest, and give credit when it is due." Be true to yourself, don't steal from others and definitely give credit where its due. I'm going to mention that great tid bit from you on my blog and definitely reference back to you!!!!!
