What is the best thing you've ever won? 

When I first read this question, I couldn't think of anything that I've ever won!  But then I remembered that I used to win a lot of blog giveaways back in the day.  And then I couldn't remember what I've won.

I do remember my very first prize was a package of fortune cookies.  That was the start of my winning streak, so that'll be my favorite!

What is one thing that repeatedly makes you angriest?

People who never follow the rules and nothing ever happens to them.  I think this has happened at every single job I've ever been at, but I've also seen numerous examples just in life in general.  It's like they can do whatever they want, and they're never held accountable.  This bothers me, because I'm usually the one that's the first to get caught if I do anything wrong.

What song makes you laugh, no matter how often you hear it?
Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.
I'm probably way off, but it kind of reminds me of a sea anemone.

I hope everyone who celebrates it had a Happy Easter!  The Easter Bunny left lots of chocolates for me at my mom's house.  He also brought my boys both a squeaky stuffy.  They're in Heaven!
So this weekend was interesting!  I found out that one of my coworkers quit mid-shift on a VERY busy day.  Still not sure what went down to make her do that.  I'll have to see if I can get the gossip when I go in to work this morning.  Can't say I'm too disappointed.  She was the absolute worst one there, and I can't believe she hadn't been fired already.  Now if only the other really bad coworker would leave...

I also discovered this weekend that I won't be graduating in a year, because I calculated my earned credits wrong.  I'll still have another semester left after that, which makes me really sad!  I love school, but I'm sooooo over it now!  I'm ready to move on and start my life.  Plus, when I graduate, it'll be December.  Who hires in December or January?  No one!  Ugh!  I spent the weekend feeling sorry for myself, but then I realized that I'm still a senior and the end is in sight.  
Took this from here - another oldie, but goodie.  

1.  When you were a child, was there something you looked forward to doing when you grew up? What is it, and have you done it? 

I remember going to a friend's house as a kid.  My friend asked her mom if we could have a snack.  She said no, but then she opened up a small drawer that was filled with gum and allowed us to each have a piece.  So that's what I always wanted to do as a kid - have a drawer full of gum!  My mom almost never bought us gum, so it was a real treat when I got some.

As an adult, I haven't actually filled up a drawer.  But I always have more than enough in my pantry, and have to stop myself from buying more when I go to the grocery store.  

2.  If you had a guardian angel, what would you name it?  

Hmmm...  Depends on if it was a boy or girl!  If it was a guy, I'd name him Michael, after the movie of the same name.  (If you haven't seen it, you really should check it out.  Love that movie!)  If it was a girl, I'd name her Angel.

3.  What have you done in the past week to help someone else?

I feel bad, because I haven't done anything all that spectacular.  I probably held the elevator for someone or something.  What did you do?

4.  If you were reincarnated, what would be the worst thing you can think of to come back as?

A serial killer

5.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
My dad always said brown eggs tasted better.  I can't really tell the difference, but he always swore they were better.

Kira from Sojos asked if I might be interested in having the boys try out their dog food, we jumped at the chance!

I chose the Sojos Complete Dog Food with freeze-dried raw turkey, so that's all that we expected.  But we opened up the box and were quite shocked to find so much more!

One 2 pound bag of Sojos Complete Dog Food with freeze-dried raw turkey (large blue bag).  Four sample size bags each of Sojos Grain-Free fruit and veggie (green bags), Sojos Complete with freeze-dried raw beef (yellow bag), and Sojos Original wheat- and corn-free (orange bag).  Two bags each of Sojos grain-free treats lamb and sweet potato flavor (brown label) and Sojos chicken pot pie flavor (orange label).  It was an overwhelming choice with what to try first!  The boys were in HEAVEN!
Ultimately, we went with the Sojos Original wheat- and corn-free sample.  
Since it's freeze-dried, it doesn't look the same as regular dog food that you're used to buying at the store.  I mixed it with half a cup of warm water, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then let the boys try it.  Some of the samples suggest adding raw meat.  Since I didn't have any on hand that I was willing to share with the boys, they haven't tried those yet.  
I mixed one sample size bag up in one bowl and split the food into two bowls after adding water and letting it sit.  Shiver and Chico couldn't get enough of it!  They cleaned their bowls and went looking for more!  (I had just mopped the floor and didn't know if the dogs were going to make a mess or not, that's why I laid the newspaper down.)   The dog treats have been just as big of a hit with them.  They just can't get enough!
They've since tried the Sojos Complete Dog Food and the boys loved it just as much.  I've been feeding them this and supplementing it with dry food to get them used to it.  I love that it's all natural.  When Chico went for his annual shots recently, the vet said that he had a galloping heartbeat.  Feeding him this has given me peace of mind that he's eating healthy.  I want him to be around for a very long time, and this will help keep him in good condition.     
One two pound bag makes up to ten pounds of food.  This is going to last my boys quite awhile, along with the other dog food samples we received.  However, I have no doubt that we'll be ordering another bag when this one is finished.  Chewy offers auto-ship so that you never have to worry about running out of food, which is always handy!  Plus, any order over $50 gets free shipping and handling.  

Have you tried Sojos yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?

We were not compensated financially for this post, but were provided free samples of dog food and treats in return for our honest opinion.

I meant to post a review of last Wednesday, which would have included pix of my handsome boys.  Unfortch, things have been crazy busy lately, and don't seem to be slowing down any time soon.  The end of the semester is nearing, so things are really getting down to the wire in regards to assignments.  I'm really gonna try and get that posted this Wednesday instead.

I've been noticing a lot of comments by new bloggers the last few weeks.  Welcome!  I don't know what's drawn you here.  I haven't gotten any new followers in awhile (haven't lost any either, so thank you!), but I do hope you'll come back and visit from time to time.
Took this from here.

1.  If you auditioned for American Idol, what song would you sing? 

I like to think I have an excellent voice when I'm in the car with the windows rolled up and the radio blaring, and I can't really hear myself.  In reality, I probably don't really have the best singing voice.  However, I can't help rapping along to this song whenever it comes on the radio:

2.  What subatomic particle would you be and why?

I'm embarrassed to admit that I had no idea what a subatomic article actually is, and I had to google it.  To be honest, I have no clue how to answer this question.  So I'm moving onto the next one...

3.  If you had the choice between an RV, a sports car, an SUV, or a bicycle, which would you choose and why?

I should probably pick the bicycle for the exercise.  But I'mma go with the sports car, just because I've always thought it would be fun to have one.  Which would you choose?

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.
We used to call these roly poly bugs when I was little.  I remember one house we live in, we used to have a bunch of these in the back yard and I always enjoyed playing with them.  When you touch them, they curl up into a little ball.

As of 8:00 AM this morning, I get to register for classes for the beginning of my senior year of college!!!  Woo hoo!!!!!!!  I'm both very excited and very freaked out about this.  Once school ends, I won't have an excuse to stop putting off starting my "real" life.

I have a lot to do this week, but I'm going to try to post pix of the boys on Wednesday.
Took this from here.  It's an oldie but goodie.

1.  When you walk past mirrors or large windows, what's the first thing you check in your reflection?

I generally will look away as quickly as possible so I don't have to see my reflection.  Sometimes I'll look at my hair though, just to make sure it looks okay.

2.  When you were ten years old, how did you spend your free time?

I don't remember exactly, but I'm guessing I was probably still playing with dolls, and looking for friends to join me.

3.  What person in your life defines the word "kindness"? 

I don't really know.  I know who inspires me, and the work that she does makes me want to be a better person.  I don't really know her all that well, but she must be kind to do all the things that she does.   I met her when we used to volunteer together.  Her grandson was diagnosed with cancer at a very young age, which has made her do anything and everything she possibly can to raise money for cancer research.  She also regularly hosts fundraisers for those recently diagnosed with cancer, so that they can pay for treatment.

Her grandson seems to be doing quite well, these days.  I think he's about three now.

4.  How does purple (the color) make you feel?

Purple has always been my very favoritest color, so it makes me feel happy.  I went off on a pink tangent for awhile, but I'm back to purple again.

5.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.
This reminds me of high school.  I thought I was too cool to use a backpack, so I carried my books back and forth.  I most definitely use a backpack these days!  And I rarely carry books to school.  I have too many, and they're too heavy to carry around all day.
