The Disney Princess

This is Aubrey and Matt.
Maybe one day they'll have adorable blonde, dimpled babies.

My Reason For Being Absent

Kevin, Julie and their children Kyra, Alana (with her Froggy), and Matthew

Joey and Ashley and baby Olivea

I hope you like my experimenting with backgrounds!

For the past two days I have been EXTREMELY busy with the Gallery and with travelling to Michigan for the first time to meet baby Olivea. We are going to be going to a Tattoo Parlor later on this week for tattoo's a piercings and I am really excited about that. We have plans for a girls night of shopping ahead of us and for a game night with a huge group of friends! I wish, many times over, that I could be back in Michigan with my friends, but either way it is nice to see them and spend so much time with them even if it is ever few months. I will also be seeing my high school bestie Aubrey tomorrow and I will post a picture up of her and maybe even her "Mr. Right".

Anyway, the Gallery looks amazing so far. I have a list of about five local artists that want to be involved, which is really good in my outlook. The interview with BusinessWeek went so well, they are looking to do a five page spread on Pooch with an emphasis page on the Gallery. A photographer will be send out a few weeks from now, after they see the California location. There was one thing about those guys that was a little entertaining to me:

I'm told it was because of my "hot secretary" glasses.

In accordance with trying to do one post a day, here is my post. A picture of a girl, done using a tablet, so a lot of things are wrong with it. She could be me, but if it was she would have dark circles under her eyes, her hair in a ponytail and a paint smeared shirt on. So, she must not be me....

I have to work today. So I am being lazy. This is all I have for you:

Deal with it.

Baby Olivea

One of my bestest friends, Ashley, and her husband Joey, just welcomed their first child into their lives. I couldn't be happier for them and feel much heartache over the fact that I could not be there to see her first few moments. So, I have drawn a picture of their new little girl in honor of her birth, their love, and the great joy she will bring to everyone who knows her.

Tumble Tumbling

For everyone who wants to know exactly what I mean when I say he's a little wobbly :)

Told You There Would Be Zombies

Technically to "do something different" eating brains would be the way to go. Now-a-days zombies aren't after the brains, they seem to be just after the bite; to infect, not to dine. Think about it, when's the last time you saw a Zombie specifically target the brain in a movie or book? If you know of one, leave a comment below!

"Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!"


I am  probably one of the few Christians in the world who loves Harry Potter. But, I do. And I am in a Potter mood. I have two things for you, aside from the amazing Tumbledore:

1: THIS. Just click on that, and if you are a Harry Potter, or even a Glee fan, you will thank me. If you don't know, as a Glee fan, why you should like this, then you are a disgrace. Ok, maybe not, but seriously... you should figure it out. (And, no, it's not because it's a musical). 

2. Dumbledore quotes! Yay!

"To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
"Fear of a name increases fear of a thing itself."
"Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them."
