what I bought

a few things I bought from CSN

Ware Mfg Pop up Playpen
Scout absolutely loves her house.
I had hopes of actually being able to close the doors and leave her in it
instead of her tiny crate
but she escaped after a few seconds. (velcro floor).
It's easy to set up and take down.
I take it home to my mom and dad's so she has a place to hang out.

I like this preppy collar and leash but the collar is kind of bulky and doesn't really work well
on the security front. Not good for a puppy, maybe a full grown dog.
The leash is sturdy and I love that I can hook my hand through the end of it. 

Graham and Brown frames wallpaper

probaby wouldn't wallpaper a whole room with it.
thinking of something like this

what have you bought lately?

so to everyone that says you can't find your soulmate in a bar
up your ziggy with a wawa brush. 
(what movie?)
yep. her wedding colors were blue and green.
