Five for Friday Linky Party {May 31, 2013}

This is my first time linking up with the Five for Friday crew, but I'm gonna give it a try! 

1. Hung out with my hyper fur-kids on Sunday while working on new clipart.  Well, ok... I admit it.  Keimo isn't all that hyper anymore, but Bella, the youngun' gets him fired up every now and then.  She's so funny... she'll race around the house, running full speed ahead then come back in and jump right into my lap and want some love.  She's such a love bug.  Keimo... well, he's a bit cat like.  (He's a little confused about being a 100lb. dog!) He wants attention when HE wants it and the rest of the time, you should just leave him alone. 

Me and Bella-Boo!  She thinks she's a lap dog!
2. Went to work on Monday.  Yes, I know it's supposed to be a holiday, but my theory was go on Monday and no one else will be there to bother you.  You might actually get something done.  Now, y'all might think that sounds a little snarky, but if you've ever met me in person, you know that I really love to talk. I spent a lot of years being really quiet and now I'm ready to let it all out!  I talk all the time... I even talk to myself.  A LOT.  Soooooo..... if there's anyone around, especially my favorite custodian (He's a former student who usually works at night and goes to school during the day to be a teacher, but during the summer, he works days! I'm so proud of him!), I won't get a darn thing done!  lol! 
3. Wednesday... well, if you read my last post, you know what I did on Wednesday.  It was work, but I had so much fun and I was glad I had the time to help out a friend!  :-) 

4. I had to go pay the yearly license & registration fee for my car yesterday.  :-(  Bye-bye money, but I did get a super awesome new license plate!  Here's a sample of what it looks like!  :-)
How cool is that plate!?!?!? 
5. I did a mini-me for Shelley over at The Perks of Teaching Primary recently.  She sent me a picture that I just couldn't resist posting for everyone.  It seriously cracked me up when I saw how much my little cartoon looked like her!  She gave me permission to share it with you guys!  :-) 

Have a good day... on purpose!  (& a good weekend, too!)

    1. Awwww... I'll tell Bella you said she was adorable. She'll appreciate that. She loves being told how pretty she is! (Don't we all?!?!?) Wish I could send you a KY tag, but I don't think that would be legal. lol ;-)

  5. I still laugh when I see that mini me and the "real" me. You are so talented. Thanks so much. Brandee, I think it may have been your blog that I saw it on but when I bookmarked Crystal's site for later I wasn't sure where I got it so THANK YOU!!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I found your blog through Smedley's Smorgasbord. I am in love with your cutesy clipart and blog. I also love your license plate! I am from KY, too! I'm going to have to pop over to TPT and add to my ever growing cart!
