better late than never...

last week, pia, mom and i went to see "the lion king"! and it was incredible. possibly my favorite musical of all time (and that's saying a lot, cuz i LOVE musicals)!

and, shockingly, i actually remembered my camera - this is the only pic i got though. i am the queen of self-pics, and really have it down to an art form at this point i think. :)

way too blessed...

Happy Thanksgiving all! SO much to be thankful for this year, it's difficult to know where to begin...

A few things that come to mind:

~My beautiful, funny, wonderful family. I feel so lucky to count my siblings as 3 of my best friends. And am so thankful to my parents for raising us, loving us, and so much more!

~For a secure job and a roof over my head!

~For having owned some of the greatest dogs known to man - Murphles, Walt, Lois and especially Gooser who is finally in a place where she can run wild and free! :)

~For wonderful friends who love me, support me, make me laugh nonstop.

I hope everyone has as much if not more that they can be thankful for this year!!! Scary to think Christmas is just around the road...

It's my favorite time of year - Zags Basketball! Hurray! We aren't (yet) ranked this season, but have had some good showing so far... So we are hopeful for a great year! (And the fact that we only have 2 Seniors and 1 Junior helps!)
Go Zags!

Bear Longinotti, 1995-2009

She was a soft-spoken lady in her old age, other than at walk time when she would go nuts. She HATED to be brushed. Which meant she occasionally suffered through a terrible shave job to get rid of mats (and subsequently was known as Nala due to the Lion King-like hairdo). She suffered in silence (mostly) when first Murphy and later Walt and Lola came to live in HER world, but she was always, always the boss. She was the cutest effing puppy I have ever seen in my entire life. All fluffy white fur and love. She loved going to Tony's soccer games when she was a pup, and would always try to chase the balls around wanting to be one of the gang. She, of course, LOVED the snow and was so fun to play with - always trying to catch snowballs and run around.

Love you Goosy Girl.

And sorry for the crap pictures of our baby girl, I'll find some more later.

Take that, Haters!

Well, it only took 3 1/2 months since moving in, but my room is finally clean (the giant pile of clothes in the middle is all the stuff i didn't need for everyday wear, and hadn't yet put somewhere)... :O

another amazing website.

Check out this guy - he makes fun of kids' drawings. Love it.

Here's an example:

His comments: "You spelled America wrong asshole. Also, I could have sworn America's colors were red, white and blue. There's no yellow anywhere, traitor. F"

watch out Seattle!

Pia and I are off to Seattle to watch the 'Hawks take on the Detroit Lions (who are 1-6 to our 2-5, so we MAY stand a chance)!

SO effing excited! and i promise i'll bring a camera this time...
