Saturday Stuff

First, a brag. This fantastic award was bestowed upon me, and I totally LOVE it!

Kelly at Song for Whoever is a new bloggy friend of mine and a fellow GATOR fan! She has great taste in college sports teams...and blog friends! ha ha
I'd like to give the award to Kelly, but obviously, she already got it.
So now, it is my privilege to pass this kick-ass award on to 5 kick-ass bloggers!
All of my choices for this award are new & loyal bloggy friends of mine, either someone who found me or someone I found from various bloggy friend-finding sites like AllMediocre, SITS, or Candid Carrie's Fx4 feature!

#1. A Thorn Among Roses
#2. Taking What is Left
#3. The Fam Five
#4. On the Verge
#5. MamaHut

And I had such a hard time narrowing it down to five that I had to add just ONE more.
**Extra** Casey's Trio You have to go check out her triplets, and all of the other awarded bloggers. They're fantastic!

Second, what's up here.
Tomorrow, we have an adoption event here in my town. Most of the events for our rescue group are out of town and hard for us to get to, so I'm so glad we're having an event here! I'll get to see my fellow rescuers, meet some new fosters, and hubby & the kids will be along for the fun. We're taking one of our fosters and I hope he find his forever home.

Third, I'm going to enter a picture in a Pet Photo contest. I'm planning on entering this picture...



Whatcha think? It's one of our former foster puppies, snuggled up in J's work boot. I just love it!

Fourth, Fay. She seems to be done with us. She dumped a bunch of rain on us today and blew some major winds, but hopefully she has moved on and won't do much damage elsewhere. I'm just SO glad we never lost power! I hope to see sunshine tomorrow, it's been a while!

Peace Out!



***ETA*** I am one of the Saucy Blogs on The Secret is in the Sauce! WOOHOO!!

And, I found out that tomorrow after the adoption event, we're going to be transporting a Mama dog who was just rescued from a shelter...and her FOUR DAY OLD puppies! I will definitely be taking pictures.
Peace Out again! xoxo

You poor people in FL. My parents are near Ft. Lauderdale and were pretty much spared. They're driving up to NJ starting Tuesday so I hope all the roads are cleared by then. Good luck with your pups.

How great that you are foster parent's! I don't think I could do that. I would want to keep each and every one! So cute.

Hope your foster got adopted!

Lane Boyz Mom said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! And YUPPERS...GOO GATORS, my husband just got another tattoo yesterday to show off his love of the orange & blue;) LOL

I LOVE the puppy picture, that is adorable!!!

And not sure where you are here in Florida, but I'm glad she didn't do much more than dump rain on you! That is really all she did to us, I mean, the area around me there are tree's down and lots of flooding, but US personally...we are blessed;)

I was hoping for sunny skies today, we actually saw a little blue earlier, but it was simply a tease. A cruel tease at that...black skies moved in, thunder, lightning and then BAM...the rain! ARGH I am tired of it, LOL

Insane Mama said...
