One Week!

Well, hello Monday. We meet again.
Only today I have to be at work at 8AM.
That is TWO HOURS earlier than normal.
Good thing I rested up yesterday!

I talked to the hubs (duh), did a bit of sprucing up around the house, got some Vitamin D in the backyard, and was close to finishing this project:
I got that sweet little shelving unit on clearance at Target, and just WAIT till you see what it looks like now...I posted a picture on twitter, if you want a sneak peak.
I must say...even I am surprised at how gorgeous it's turning out. Plus it feels good to be working with my hands again. It's been far too long.

Unfortunately, I didn't get any help from this bugger:


He was imbibing on the peanut butter.
I told you that Coconut Peanut butter was addicting!

It's a good thing he's so cute, because he does NOT pull his weight around the house.
Puppy kisses can only get you so far, buddy boy.
Yeah right. Who am I kidding?
Those are the only kisses I'm gettin' this year!


Now for the bi'ness end:

As I announced a few weeks ago, I am going to open up for Sponsorship!
But your $$ is no good here....
If you are interested in sponsoring my blog for the month of August, all you have to do is choose one of the following prompts and submit a short writing piece if you are so inspired.
I would like to feature your talents and together we will show that Perception really IS Everything.
I know, I know, I 'm a cheeseball, but read the prompts and you will see what I mean!

Prompt #1:
Share an experience with my followers of a time where someone perceived you in a way that surprised you or was not true, and how that affected you negatively or positively.
Example: I could share about the fact that everyone perceives me as a "dumb blonde" or ten years younger than I actually am. I could then explain how it used to bother me, and now I find it entertaining.
Prompt #2:
Share an experience where you misjudged someone, and what you learned from those false perceptions. This could be that you trusted someone that ended up hurting you, but I'd prefer that you judged someone negatively that ended up being the wrong assumption.
I'd like to showcase the negative side of perceptions, but will accept both entries.
Example: I almost believed the judgments of others, and didn't give my best friend a chance.
Now I realize that I would be lost with out her!
Prompt #3:
Share the positive side of a negative experience you faced.
Example: Enduring my husband's deployment is hard, but I am happy that I love someone so much that every minute is worth it.

I am giving you a heads up, because there is only one week left before the deadline!
I have a few submissions in, and several on the way, but the sizes and amount of sponsors will be determined when all submissions are in.

To enter email me directly,, with the following:
Your name
A photo of yourself
Your blog button
Your answer to the prompt of choice
Subject line: August Sponsors

All entries will be accepted until July 22nd, 11:59PM.
[For the procrastinators- I don't get up until 7AM]

I'm pretty darn excited about this, and have already been inspired by the entries.
It is going to mean so much to me to share your experiences, and to help promote your blogs.
Remember, one week!

Aww, I have a picture kinda similar to that of our pup Oreo with his face in a jar of PB while in his bed. So cute. :D

Haha, you know what's funny...

Last night I was just telling my pups how hard they have it...they never have to cook dinner, they never take out the trash, they never run a vacuum or sweep up their dog hair, they don't know what cleaning a toilet is even like and they don't even have to do laundry. ROUGH LIFE, I tell ya!! ;) Wish I could trade places with them sometimes!!
