Sorry I'm not Sorry

for not blogging for almost a week. I know you all wait on the edge of your seat for my blog posts. I just wasn't feeling it

that Dexter Morgan is treated 1000215512020 times better than most people I know. I treat him like the little Prince that he is. I don't mind spending my hard earned cash on treats, toys, clothing

he has enough clothing to fill up one dresser drawer. Ryan has to learn to share with his son

that I refer to Dexter as my "son"

that my Minnesota Golden Gophers beat the #1 ranked team Indiana Hoosiers last night


that I don't feel bad for people who have to drive in the snow. Grow a pair and buck up, drive slow and stop your bitchin'.  Just because I grew up in Minnesnowta doesn't mean I enjoy driving in it. I just had to learn to adapt to the conditions. you should to

I think its stupid that kids get ribbons and trophies just for participating. If you win you get a trophy, not just for showing up.  Just because you don't want to hurt someones feelings.  The generation who gets participation trophies is royally fucked


for swearing on this blog today

that I didn't make the bed today. Sorry Ry!  but I bitch at  him about not making the bed

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving the book Safe Haven.  I really didn't think I would enjoy this book. (I'm not the biggest Nicholas Sparks fan.) I can't put it down. I've heard the movie is crap. Oh well. not surprised. Movies are never as good as the book.  However, I am going to the movie on Friday.
I'm loving the TV show The Following. Holy Moly- shit just got real this week. If you aren't watching it you are missing out. I wasn't sure I was going get into it, since I can't STAND Kevin Bacon. The show can be really dark and gritty at times. If you can get past that you'll love it.  

I'm loving that I get to see my favorite Timberpups play basketball tonight. My awesome co-worker gave me some great tickets.  They suck pretty bad this year, but the atmosphere is still fun.  woot!

I'm loving that today is Payday! nuff said. 

I'm loving that this weekend is the 5th birthday of my most favorite girl in the whole wide world.
I'm hoping that Winter Storm "Q" won't get in the way of this. pps this whole naming winter storms is kinda silly. and "Q", that's original. Did James Bond name this one??
What are you loving this Wednesday?

if you really knew Dexter Morgan

hey its your favorite serial killer Yorkie on the blog today. I hear that people like it when I yip yap on this blog, so here I am again. My mom talks about me from time to time   all the time, but I wanted to give you my prospective.
if you really knew me

you'd know that I eat better than my 'rents do. yup fo real yo. I could stuff my face all the time with my favorites: carrots (cooked or raw), oranges, and apples. I can never get enough. Well my mean Mama determines when I've had enough. NOT FAIR.

you'd know I haven't met a pillow I can't say no to yet.... Pillow are so soft, clean, and the perfect girl-friend.   I can't help my-self sometimes. My Mama and Papa get real mad when all the pillows are off the bed when the come home. Sometimes I need a little variety. #knowwhatimsayin

you'd know my Mama rescued me from a "puppy mill", we didn't find out till two years after she rescued me that it was a "puppy mill".  I'm so glad my Mama got me outta there. 

you'd know my Mama picked me out online. I did have a brother she could have taken home, but when she came to see me she fell in love with me. #mostpeopledo  

you'd know I don't like to share. I especially don't like to share my Mama.  you see my Papa tells me all the time that I'm "cock block".  I'm only 21 and don't know that lingo yet. He gets real mad at me sometimes. All I wanna do is share smooches with my Mama.  I hate it when other pups, kitties, or babies are around. They get more attention than I do, and I can't handle this. It kills my ego.

you'd know that if you offer me a bone or treat I won't eat it right away. I was taught early on about "stranger danger", and to not take candy from strangers.  I will take the treat and hide it all over the house, in shoes, in blankets, in the closet, under pillows, you name it I've hidden it there. 

you'd know I have a refined palate and prefer cat food to dog food. Which works out for me cuz the cats like my food. My Mama tells me I'm gunna turn into a kitten. I think its happening... when my belly gets upset and she tells me kittens are in there. maybe I'm gonna be a Mama. I dunno. I don't like cats too much. cuz they don't like me. #whatsnottolove

you'd know I also like to play in the snow. I love, love, love the snow. Other people tell Mama about how their dog child doesn't like to play in the white stuff. its amazingly fun. My Papa and I roll around in the snow and get crazy. I also like to "draw" in the snow. I can only "color" in yellow. boo!  

you'd know I sleep under the covers. yup love that. 

you'd know that I become Dracula when my Mama tries to clip my nails. she gets real mad at me.  I feel bad afterwards, but boys don't need manicures. 

you'd know I can't stand to be alone. It was worse when I was a young tyke, I'm slowly trying to cope with my parents leaving me.  I don't see why they don't just stay at home and play with me. 

you'd know my 'rents are cray cray and name all my toys. yup, its weird. I don't care what the name of the damn toy is, I just wanna play with it. 

you'd know I have the best 'rents a pup could ask for. Even though my Mama can smother me sometimes  a lot. I wouldn't have it any other way. 

you'd know I have a massive closet. my Mama shared some of my clothing with you a while back. It was so embarrassing  She acts like I'm a model or somethin'. oh wait I am. 

you'd know I always have my head out the window. Even if its -15.  I fight with my Mama until she hands over control of the window. #ialwayswin
you'd know I like big bones and I cannot lie.

you'd know I told my Mama when I was done with puppy pads. yup, I rule the house. I grew up and became a big boy overnight.

you'd know I love the lawn mower. 

you'd know I have a huge fear of cows.

I've been really good lately at avoiding blog swaps. I couldn't pass this one up. I love anything Valentines day. Well mostly just hearts, yah anything hearts.  I could do without the angels with arrows. The freak me out.

This time was no exception.  Some of the goodies a $15 ITunes gift-card, some socks, a make up bag from 31, two bottles of nail polish, dish towels, note-cards  chocolate, baby lips- by Maybelline, a really cute little sign that says "LOVE", and two scarfs. 

 Dexter loved the scarfs.

Special thanks to Katie. Ashlee and Savannah thanks for hosting this fun swap!

10 on Tuesday

1.) Clearly I've learned to compromise in this relationship. We are seeing A Good Day to Die Hard, as our date night for Valentines Day.  Yup, not exactly my idea. but Ry-guy is extra special to me so I caved. I actually went above and beyond and scored some advance screening passes for tonight. Two days before everyone else gets the pleasure to see it. I spent Monday night trying to watch Die Hard, and the couple others. I made it through one. whew! Bruce Willis actually has hair in this flick.

2.)  Ry-guy finally got fed up with the magazine addiction situation.  Monday night I came home to this. I was also told I need to read the magazines. He told me some issues are from '11. whoops!
3.)  I think I'm the only person not watching The Walking Dead.  The subject doesn't interest me one bit, but everyone I know is watching this show. Am I really missing something? Its been on my Netflix Instant Queue forever.

4.)  I learned this weekend you can't please everyone, and I certainly can't win them all. Slowly trying to come to terms with this. 

5.) Am I the only person with a cat who does this? I feel like he's slightly abnormal. 

6.)  If you're in the market for some new tunes, do yourself  a favor and get the new CD's by Gary Allan, Tim McGraw, Bruno Mars, Alicia Keys, the soundtrack to TV's Nashville,  and Ne-Yo.  Some of these CD's might not be brand new, but soooo worth a listen, and a purchase. Don't steal your music! 

7.) Speaking of paying for music. I actually purchased this song. I'm obsessed.  Please still be my friend. 

8.) I have developed a serious girl crush on Kate Upton, daymmnn girl!

9.) I'm so mind boggled at this Chris Brown and Rihanna romance. She gets the crap beat out of her and she is all lovey dovey with him. #idontgetit #somegirlsneverlearn 

10.) I'm excited that Ry-guy will be guest blogging a few times in the coming weeks!  #getexcited

my current obsessions


I can't believe I'm admitting this, but here goes... So I read the book by Farrah of Teen Mom, My Teenage Dream Ended.  It was quiet possibly one of the worst books I've ever read.  It was a quick easy read, but the writing was horrid (not that I expected anything less) and very childish.  She talks about Derek her daughters Father. That part was semi interesting. Since there isn't to much on the show about him. 

Since reading that book I am back on my biography kick again. I am not sure what I will be reading next, any biography suggestions?

TV Show

I've been loving Game of Thrones.  I have to make sure Ry-guy is around to watch it. This show has numerous characters and story lines going at once. He helps me interpurt the fancy lingo on the show.



I've been craving anything veggie. I've been taking veggie nuggets to work lately and love them. I've also been loving soup. Tomato soup and grilled cheese. yum!


I've been loving Tim McGraw and Gary Allan's new cds. Two of best looking men around. 


Mrs. Stewart just stared showing up at my house two months ago. I would never pay for this magazine, but I'm glad I have it. I really love the articles, recipes, and crafts.


I'm super duper excited that in two weeks we're headed to Iowa to celebrate Miss Hailey's 5th birthday. Its going to be EPIC! I can't wait. I just love spending time with her and the family. 


I don't think I need to elaborate on this one.

What are you currently obsessing over this week?
