I drove by the house yesterday and saw that they had finished the siding! Now it looks like a real house, mostly! The only area left exposed is where the brick is going, and I'm not sure when they'll put that on, since it's just aesthetic and doesn't keep them from working inside.
Yesterday, Oscar's girlfriend Bell came over. Our neighbors went to Bismarck for the day, and they needed me to let Bell out, so I just had her stay at our place so she could hang out with the boys. It was pretty much heaven for Oscar, as you can see in this first picture. She was curled up on my lap, and he had his face nuzzled into her side for warmth. ADORABLE.
I'm currently watching The Amazing Race, as I write this, and I just have to say I couldn't love the Andy & Tommy team any more. I REALLY hope I don't jinx them, because I think they're the tops. I would love to do this show, but I'd have to do it with someone who is great at directions, because I get lost in Dickinson, so I'd be screwed in China. But I'd be a total baller at the Road Blocks and Detours. So who wants to audition to do it with me???? Ashley?!?! Also, on one of the teams is this super hunky guy, Marcus, who's got a little Idris Elba thing going on. Grrrrrrrrr. I gotta say, there are worse reasons to watch a show....
I'm embarrassed to admit this, but every time a commercial for Twilight Breaking Dawn comes on, I find myself getting sucked in. Yes, okay, I read all the books. But here's the thing--I hated them! I saw the first movie and was really shocked at how horrible the acting was. The reason I can't look away from the Breaking Dawn commercials is because I think it's going to be hilariously awesome. I mean, the birth scene alone, is going to be EPICALLY BAD. How much lip-biting can Kristen Stewart do to convey the pain of a vampire childbirth? I can't wait to see. I won't see it in theaters, of course, but it would be great to watch with Dana.
I did a little shopping this weekend, hittin up Herbergers big time. I was very successful. I got Jacob a really nice Calvin Klein tie, and a Kenneth Cole dress shirt for $10 each. Hi-yo! And I got a pair of boots $95 off!
