This morning I woke up to more company than I could have cared for.  You see - I shared a bed with four dogs last night (I'm dog sitting).  And one giant, ehh...big, ok, kinda medium sized spider.  But whatever.  It was still a spider.
As my eyes slowly peered open to the world at 6 AM after a restless night's sleep, I realized that what I thought was a pillow, was actually a dog's furry butt in my face, that I had been unintentionally snuggling for the past several hours.  I also realized I was dealing with an alarm clock without a snooze button, as I felt my toes under attack.  Current enemy?  A black and white shih tzu who goes by the name, Lil' Nicky.  You see, the bed was clearly over taken by dogs.  And as much as I resisted, I still found my arms, legs, and mind, twisted up in sheets, at the edge of the bed.  In all of my discomfort, I glanced over at TaylaLittle Tayla.  Snoring.  Sprawled out on her back, with her four paws in the air.  Looking awfully comfortable.  And awfully like my new current enemy.  She was probably dreaming of some tasty food, or the best walk of her life, while I was pondering all the things wrong with this scenario.  Then, I suddenly felt something on my leg.  Something crawling.  Ohmigosh.  I glanced down.  A big, brown, eight legged, googly something, that gives you the heebies and scream, kind of spider.  I jumped out of bed faster than I could blink, and did the "get this spider off of me" dance.  Of course, the four dogs awoke from their peaceful slumber, and looked up at me with their puppy eyes, heads cocked to one side, and gave me a look like, 'human, you cray'.  And with that, I rolled my eyes, and welcomed Monday, with some err...expected, and unexpected company.

First of all EEEEWWWWWWWWWW!!! You poor thing! What a way to start the week! I'm so sorry!

Two, I too love this color combo--perfectly crisp and fresh for summer.

Three--I never thought I would say this, but I have been wearing pressons too lately and loving them. And, the price is right too.

Hope your week gets better!

Stesha said...

stick ons?? really? I must try, because gels at 30 buck every 20 weeks is not allowing my savings to grow :)

Oh my gosh, what a morning! I was wondering about those impress nails, I might have to try them now that you said something..!

Lauren said...

Definitely my favorite color palette for summer.
Pups are so funny when they sleep - last night my little guy was snoring up a storm like a 300 lbs man (he's only 11 lbs) and decided to take up the whole middle of the bed. Totally spoiled.
