Moral Dilemma (As Seen on TV)

Is it wrong to want a Snuggie?
Take my poll! (To the right.)

Update: It's just been brought to my attention that Slankets are real (see my poll). And here I thought it was made up by the ingenious writers behind 30 Rock...

Keep Calm and Carry On

So I'd been seeing this sign everywhere it seems. Some people I work with have post card sized signs of it at there desks, I saw a guy with it on his T-shirt, I've seen it in vinyl on Etsy, I think I even saw it on a coffee mug somewhere. It's an old British sign that was distributed during WWII. Anyway, I decided to put it in my family room a few weeks ago and it's seemed to come in handy this week. So here I am sharing it with you just in case any of you need it.

Speaking of Collin...

Way to go Collin!
You let that antelope know who is boss.

Does anyone have any good antelope recipes?


Why doesn't that sound appetizing?

Oh, because it isn't.

Husband Appreciation Post

So I have this really neat husband (that I TOTALLY love) named Collin.

A few of the reasons I think he is neat are as follows:

He plays a mean guitar.

This is his cheap "leave-it-out-to-play-during-commercial-breaks" guitar. He has a few. He would have had more but he sold a few to buy my engagement ring. What a team player.
He is pretty handy.

He installed this gate to keep the dogs out of the living room. I love it.

He stands cool.

Is that weird to love the way your husband stands? I don't know what it is about it, but I remember one of the first things I noticed when I met him was "he stands cool."

There are more. Many, many, MANY more. But those are the ones that correspond with pictures I have.

Happy Labor Day

Today we went and saw 500 Days of Summer. I enjoyed it. Mostly. I'd go into it but all my criticisms would include spoilers. So, I'll just say it was good enough to see as a matinee or rent and I'll leave it at that.After the movie we stopped for lunch at Subway and then headed up to American Fork Canyon to try our hand at panning for gold. Here is a picture of Collin panning for gold:Oh wait, sorry. This is the picture of Collin panning for gold. My bad: He didn't get much, just a fleck or two. But it was fun. And as usual, this is what I did:
So it was a good day.

Swiss Dog Days of Summer

Today we headed up to Midway and went to Swiss Days. They had a HUGE outdoor market that was so crazy busy, you could barely walk, food and live music. They had this group of about 6 girls dressed up in Swiss outfits singing "I'm Proud to Be An American." I wonder how many people saw the irony...
But we had a good time. When we go next year we'll have to remember to go earlier in the day.
Then we headed over to Soldier Hollow and watched the Sheepdog Championship. We watched sheepdogs herd sheep and ducks. It is AMAZING what they can get those dogs to do with just whistles. Our favorite part of the competition was the Splash Dogs competition. Some of the dogs were jumping 20-22 feet into the pool! Does anyone have a pool? I want to see how far Lucy will jump.
