txmommy said...

I did dance. Tyson drove me crazy!

do you also watch AR and did you see the sad pee pee elimination?

Holly said...

Dont watch AR...I did one season...but gave up on it. I couldnt believe that a return missionary (Tyson) would say "I think she is of absolutely no worth" and be serious like he was. Yuck! I would LOVE to help with the invites. Lets get together!

Love those shoes, I wish I could wear heels but those shoes would make me 6 feet tall. Love your post. Your lucky you husband does not change your blog up after you worked so hard to fix it how you wanted it.

Jen said...

That chess set is too cute. I can't believe you put a deck up. Crazy... LOL. But I bet you'll love it and use it a lot.

Can't wait to see you in those heels. I would fall over on my rear...

Your post made my day! That was seriously hilarious. Puppy is way cute...but I remember the puppy stages with my dog...they're hard to handle!

Tyler and Michelle Stocking said...

I love the chess set. Such a great idea. And the dog is adorable. But not as great as those lime pumps. I love them!

The Boman Family said...

That post was too cute. I love the chess set and the deck (even though it may have been dumb it still looks AWESOME!) and the puppy is cute... though I could never handle a puppy. 3.25 kids is enough for me right now, lol. :o)
