Best boyfriend ever.

Yesterday I was in the midst of dealing with all of this stupid mom crap, when I received a very carefully wrapped package in the mail from Mr. Wonderful. After wrestling with it and trying to get it open for a while, I finally saw what was inside.

Check it:

See the poodle painting on the right, matted with the blue background? THAT'S what he sent me. See the poodles-made-with-gravel pictures on the left? Those I bought at a vintage store in Chicago for $5, which started my weird poodle collecting. Over the past few years, I've acquired a vintage poodle lamp, a poodle picture frame, and several lovely figurines. When it came time to move into my house and I knew that The Geej was going to have her own bathroom, I wanted to decorate it so that it was fun, but not too kiddy (since it's also the guest bathroom). So I decided to move all the poodles into the bathroom (except for the lamp...that's still in Geej's room). When Mr. Wonderful visited in April, I commented on how that spot (where the blue/black poodle is now hanging) was "missing something," and that I was on the lookout for something to go there. Then this arrives in the mail. It's so perfect, it's not even funny. Kind of like Mr. Wonderful himself.

Other new acquisitions? Two more damn baby dolls. While I was in Colorado, my mom purchased (and named) Britney (!) and Cindy. Britney can go in the bathtub with Geej, and Cindy wears a diaper (which is very exciting apparently). So now I have to contend with this:


How hilarious is that? She did this all by herself. She likes to surround herself with them so that they can all watch a little Teletubbie action before bed. Clearly Sally (the big one in her lap) is the favorite. Damn she's girly.

I lurve it. (The poodle pic AND the dolls. And especially the girl surrounded by the dolls.)

Oh my GAWD, the verification word is trying to kill me. Here's hoping I get it on the first try.
