OK, not really, but stranger things have happened...

I had the BEST day Saturday! I'm sure it's no secret to people who know me that I LOVE DOGS!! I am dog-happy. This past Saturday a friend at work asked me to help dog sit for a few hours in the afternoon/evening since they would be out until late and there would be nobody to feed the dog or let him out.
So Valerie to the rescue! The dog is a pure bred Golden Retriever about 3 years old named Dylan. I have no pics :( But we had the BEST time together!
He's a wonderful dog and was very happy to play ball, munch on cookies, and take me for a walk (no mistake there, he's a big dog!)
As a reward, I got to hug him, kiss his furry face, and pet him for 2 hours. I don't know who had the better time - me or Dylan!

I would do it again anytime (and probably for any dog)!

I am only Italian every 4 years or so...

Italy Wins World Cup!!

I am third generation US Born (me, both parents and all 4 grandparents born on US soil), so I really don't consider myself Italian or any nationality other than American.

But my ancestors were from Italy on all sides -
so here's one for them!!

Woo Hoo!!

Holy Moly - I Won!

A few posts down I mentioned the contest Dani was running to entice people to donate to The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I mentioned that I donated and urged others to donate as well. (Did you? I hope so!)

Well.... The contest is over, the prizes have been awarded, and I WON! First place too! So awesome!!!

What did I win?

Photo stolen from Dani's blog!

Isn't it just so beautiful?!?!?!? It was hand dyed and donated by Scout. She is apparently VERY talented and has a great eye for color. Go here to see some other beauties she's created [buy some!] I really had my eye on it wishing and wishing and whammo(!) it's mine! YeeHaa! LOL

I'll post an "in person" pic of it when I get my clammy little hands on it which should be this Thursday!

Dani is truly the best-est person for even running this contest and donating some yarn from her own stash as one of the prizes. She is very cool - go say HI!

Thank you, Dani!! I can't wait to see it in person {giggle!}
