1. I'm pretty sure Pierre hates me this morning. See evil eye, below. Sometimes when he's sleeping, I just CANNOT leave him alone. I rub his face, rub his ears, kiss his squishy face, talk to him in the most annoying baby voice ever, and make up songs to sing to him. It has to be the most annoying thing in the world.
And yes, he sleeps on the back of our couch. Like a cat. There was a time when he wasn't allowed on the furniture unless he was "invited." That lasted for a hot minute.
2. I have been craving bright spring colors for the past couple of weeks (along with the rest of the world). Living in Florida, they sort of never go away. BUT. Bright corals and mint greens don't always work for professional situations. And for those, I love a good neutral. I found one I LOVE recently (and on sale), so I must share. The color below is "Bare Bones." I really like this brand, Revlon ColorStay, for a few reasons. I swear it chips less than Essie, and it's half the price at Target. It also has a "flat" brush that makes application really smooth and easy.
3. Our realtor is coming over at 9 in the morning to get the ball rolling on putting our house on the market. As in, it's going on the market this weekend. Which means I have been running around like a mad woman this week trying to get the house spotless and put back together after our two months away. Eric and I are super excited, and nervous at the same time. We are thrilled to be moving back to the Carolinas. But selling a house? Our first house? With no definite time frame? I mean, we could be forced out the door next weekend. Works a number on this Type A household. Except for Pierre, whose only concern is that we take "his" favorite couch with us.
4. Eric found this article, and I have to share. Of course, I emailed it to Sarah immediately already. I feel the need to instantly share all things basset related with her. I have been laughing for the past two days at this. The Onion never disappoints.
Excerpt: " 'When presented with a variety of options, respondents across all
demographics were nearly unanimous in voicing their preference that
Vatican ceremonies, including Easter and Christmas masses, be presided
over by a droopy-eyed basset hound with a big, tall pope hat sitting
atop his floppy ol’ ears,” said pollster Diane Warnell, who noted that
well over 9 out of 10 of those surveyed, including Catholics, expressed a
strong desire to see a ceremonially clad dog pontiff roll around on his
back in St. Peter’s Basilica, bark to a large crowd of worshippers from
a Vatican balcony, or place his front paws up on a table and steal a
ham sandwich right off of someone’s plate."
