Yesterday was Oreo’s “birthday”! We rescued him from a shelter so we don’t know his actual birth date, but we adopted him on July 10th 2010 so that’s the day we celebrate! 🙂
I made him mini peanut butter carrot cakes (recipe here) and he got two new toys! One is the Kong bone and the other is the “Goughnuts” toy. It’s guaranteed to be indestructible so they replace it if he manages to puncture it. This is great news for us because our sweet pup has managed to rip apart nearly every “indestructible toy” we’ve given him (other than the “Kong extreme”). So we’ll see if he manages to chew through this one. Side note: check out how regal he looks in that bottom right photo. “Why yes, yes, it IS my birthday and I AM spoiled rotten…” 😉
Completely unrelated to Oreo’s birthday… last night was the Chase Rice / Parmalee concert! Chase Rice was the opener, but he has been my favorite performer of the summer so far! He sang his “Ready, Set, Let’s Roll” song that he’s best known for, but he also sang “Cruise” which he CO-WROTE with Florida Georgia Line (I had no idea he co wrote that!!). And he sang Luke Bryan’s “Drunk on You” which is one of my favorite songs. So needless to say, this was an amazing concert!
I am such a leg propper. Even right now as I type this, I have my legs propped up on the coffee table. I am either sitting like this or criss-cross-applesauce pretty much all the time. If I’m in a more formal setting I can be grown up and cross my legs instead, but this is my preference. Christopher happened to catch it in between the concerts and I thought I’d share. (ps. I only do this if no one is sitting in front of me! I wouldn’t put my feet near someone’s head!)
I don’t know how well you can see it, but Chase had these two little twins from the audience come up on stage with him to help him sing a song. They were both white-blonde and super shy and they both had their own tiny little guitars! And their names were Jaylee and Jagger. Um, cutest thing ever (well, only until my 10lb twins are born that is 😛 ). Chase was great at interacting with the crowd and he was such a good performer. Loved hearing him!
Parmalee did a great job too and it was all around a great concert! Funny story, though, remember how last time we parked far away and walked so we wouldn’t have to pay for parking only to discover that parking was free? Yeaaah… this week we drove right up to park in the free parking only to discover that it cost $10! HA! We just can’t win with the parking situation here. 😉 Oh well, it’s a free concert so $10 is a small price to pay. And it was definitely worth it! 🙂
