Ruby's Tag and some other stuff

We are back from the great freezing land of Iowa and boy did we have a LOT of fun!

This is what Tanner looked like all day today, he was frozen solid I think!

Mom got us some snacks while we were gone, I think she missed us!

That yummy thing is a big round turkey cookie made by those awesome folks at Merrick Pet Foods. They were delicious!!

Ruby tagged my MOM to "Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you’d also like to take. Tag five."

So I SUPPOSE since Mom got us good cookies I will let her answer this tag. Her name is Rhonda, like that Beach Boys song.

1 - Classic French Cooking - I would love to learn some of the traditional techniques and recipes. They seem so intimidating and involved!

2 - How to Worry Less - This is pretty self explanatory. I tend to worry way too much, but I am working on getting better about this.

3 - How to get your 30 year old boyfriend to stop eating like a 5 year old. - Seriously, I would pay big bucks for this one :)

4 - Procrastination 101 - I would be in this class with Ruby's Mom for SURE. I tend to put things off, especially cleaning. I hate to clean and always just let stuff wait for one more day...

5 - Organization 101 - I really have a problem keeping things organized. I have a ton of books and magazines and they usually end up in random piles all over the place. I also have a lot of spices and food in my pantry and it is always a mess!!

I don't know who has been tagged for this yet but anyone can do it. I better turn this back over to Mr Stains because he is giving me 'that look'.

GEEEZ that woman does go on, doesn't she?? That should be the last we hear of her for a while, she needs to make me my dinner!!

Oh and if you wonder what 'the look' is, its like this...

I think its pretty clear that I want something when I give 'the look'. In this case I want my dinner...which is what I want RIGHT NOW, so I am out of here!!!

Joe, I know you're supposed to be all tough and demanding in that picture, but just look at that cutie nose!


P.S. Turkey cookies?! Oh my Dog! That sounds like a dream.

That look really does mean business! Our girl hates to clean too. We wish our girl had the problem with too much stuff in the pantry. Our pantry is just one tiny cupboard and it is usually empty - along with the fridge.

I like that look. Can I borrow it sometime(hee hee)?

My mom doesn't like to clean either. Of course, it's necessary when you have a messy bird around the house (not naming any names of course...)

Love "the look" it totally speaks for itself!

I would push the French cooking that your mom wants to do, Joey! This will only benefit you and Tanner! Maybe slip a cookbook under the tree for her with LOTS of yummy pictures! Just a thought!

Love ya lots,

I think your mom should learn the classic french cooking thing and then test them out on you.

Wow, Joe! I'm lovin' "the look". I'm going to start practising! Tell your mum that J1 isn't too fond of cleaning and tidying either. We also have so many magazines lying around we could open a shop and sell 'em! J x

Hey Joe--Those snacks are the greatest though we don't have round ones here! Just jerky strips. But so so tasty that we get them off the counter and eat the WHOLE BAG.

That face is the most awesome. I would totally do whatever you asked. Especially if it was to jump on the counter and get the meaty snacks down.

The look says it all. If I didn't have all this hair, I could do it. But sometimes cute works for me.
