Five Favorite Things Friday

Happy Friday! Today is the first Friday of December and there's only three more to go before 2013! Today's mission: hug someone!

Favorite Travel Picture

No matter how many times I go to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, it always makes me happy. I love it; it was an institutional part of my life in Denver and now that I no longer live there, I reminisce about all the great concerts I attended here. Put it on your bucket list to see your favorite band play here (or just go to climb the steps/seats) and add another great memory-making experience.

Favorite Quote

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. -- Albert Einstein

Favorite Recipe

It’s that time of year when you or someone you know will get sick. Are you feeling congested and want something wholesome, a make-it-at-home remedy? My lovely sis passed along this recipe:

2 cups tomato juice
2-3 cloves Garlic crushed (use more if you can) 
2 T Lemon Juice 
Hot Sauce (the more the better, so as much as you can handle)
Mix and heat.

Favorite Story

I find this fascinating: Humans living with wolves! Read the story and check out the photos of a husband and wife who lived with a wolfpack for six years!

Favorite Random

This one has been around for awhile but gosh darn it, it is cute! After you watch this, go hug someone!

Coco Rose Turns One Year Old Today!

Wroof wroof, woof, voof, vroof roof! That's "Happy Birthday Coco" in canine speak! 

This past February, Hubby and I adopted a puppy from a shelter in North Carolina. A network of volunteers relayed (literally town-to-town) her and two dozen other adopted dogs up to D.C. in a matter of days. Looking back, we really didn't know what we were getting into, but Coco (her shelter-given name) Rose (her mom's name) has been our little (well, not so little: she's 65 lbs) bundle of joy and adventure! She's a lab and pit mix and is full of love, energy, curiosity, and a whole lotta of mischief!

If you are interested in adopting, please consider adopting from a shelter, especially a high-kill shelter. These furry pals need your love and a good home! There are tons of good shelters out there!

Lights! Lights! Call. Me. Maybe.

I really don't like this song but I know many of you do: Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. Ok, I admit, I sing along sometimes too. Check out the synchronized light show to the song! Happy Hump Day!

I'm back! Let's focus on happy stuff!

Hello World! Yes, yes, I've been on a little hiatus and apologize for not peppering you with good cheer and trivial info! But, as I was reading the news today, I made up my mind to stop the toxic ingestion of bad and sad news, AND once again get back to reporting something other than this crap I've been reading!

Photo Bomb!

Haha! Too cute! Which friend would you Facebook-tag as this funny husky?
