Yesterday we had a pretty major event at our house.
Only the A-list celebrities were invited and we popped bottles.

Bottles of flea shampoo.  And by A-list celebrities I mean Snoopy, Mr. Ed, Lassie, and Old Yeller.  No one showed up, but that didn’t stop us from celebrating because our old man turned 12 yesterday. howdy happy birthday Yes that hat was impossible to keep on his head…he’s not as into the whole “dress up” thing as like I would like him to be.  I guess I will never understand boys, even if they are of the canine variety.

Tim has raised Tajjie since he was a pup, check out this throwback. whoiscuter I honestly don’t know who’s cuter, the 18-year-old version of my man or the pup.

The short story is that Tim rescued three pitbulls from the back of a truck of a mean, mean man on a cold night.  The long story could bring you to tears so I will spare you, and instead invite you to party with us.  Or at least laugh at the photos while I lust over my younger boytoy.

I stopped in to Treats Unleashed to pick up a couple presents for just such an occassion and decided to make the big one-two super special for Taj.  They did such an incredible job on his cake and let me tell you a little something about customer service, they should teach a class.  I sat there for the entirety of my lunch break deciding on shapes, flavors, colors, and toppings.  Who knew you could have a custom cake, gone are the days of little old raw hides.  Consider me impressed….and a life-time customer.  The pups couldn’t be more thrilled. haveyourcakeandeatittoo Speaking of the pups, they went crazy on this cake.  Taj was so sweet to share with his little sister, not like he had a choice. sweet big brother Please don’t call PETA, we did not let them eat the whole cake.  We actually froze most of it and will give it to them when they don’t bark at the mailman.  The gift that keeps on giving, right?

Have you ever thrown your dog a party?  Been to a doggie wedding?  Please tell me someone else makes their dogs wear silly hats for fun.

March is here, March is here.
Just in case you weren’t aware.

Let’s celebrate shall we?

I’ll get the Rubens and long as you make me this cake. a cake from my dreams You had better believe I am taking the first of the month to scope out all the cute St. Patty’s crafts going on.  I love inspiration you know.

Seriously, who is making me that cake.
I don’t even care that I would have a green tongue.

Speaking of colored tongues. sweet rainbow Ok how awesome would it be to wake up to rainbow pancakes?  Hint Hint Tim.

What is it about this holiday that makes me hungry.

I wonder if Timbo would get down with a scavenger hunt, I’m putting this on my to-do list.  Especially since all the clues are already made thanks to Alison. on the agenda Speaking of my boyfran-man…I figure I can make him a little sumthin sumthin.

I love making holidays special, for everyone.  I know leaving these little babies around for all the people I like would make St. Pattys more fun for everyone. my sisters suitcase Have you found any adorable green goodness that I should know about?

Oh man, normally I look forward to the weekends.
But this one has me nervous.

It’s my little sisters 21st birthday celebration.
I am not as young as I once was y’all.
Wish me luck.

Before I embark on this adventure that may be the death of me, I want to share some of the best things on the world-wide web. MAKE YOUR FRUIT EVEN SWEETER How sickingly sweet are those stickers?  Tim and I have been eating more fruit and veggies lately thanks to Fruit My Cube and I gotta say…coughTIMcough I would be so thrilled to find a little love note on my grapes.

I think they would be so cute if you have kiddos too.  My mom and dad were always leaving little notes in my lunch, and you know what…I still have them.  Little things people, it’s all about the little things. that looks easy I am so obsessed with this cake from Serena.  It is so perfectly unfussy, and it has such character.  She gives a really good tutorial on how to make a cake just like hers and it is so simple I think even I can do it.  I love that she embraces any mistakes you make while frosting…makes you feel like less of a failure when it just comes out as a pink blob.  Everything I touch turns to goo.

Now get your scrolling finger ready.  I stumbled on the Life in Five Seconds.
Ch-ch-ch-ch-check, check it out.

speed timelines I know, that was a long scroll.  But hilarious right?
I ordered the book and can’t wait to get a full on biography lesson.

What did you find out there this week?
