funniest pet contest!

My brother's dog Styles has been entered in a funniest pet photo contest! 

Don't you love it?! 

He's part pit, part mastiff and the sweetest thing you've ever met. 

If you are feeling generous and want to cast a few votes, go to this link. The contest is run by a local Rotary group nearby my hometown in NH, and all of the proceeds from the contest go to a local scholarship fund, of which I was a recipient back in the day! Seven votes is $5, and local college students would be so grateful to the support! 

If you vote, scroll down to CF18 Styles D***** to cast your vote! 

Styles and my brother would also appreciate it, and feel free to share this via twitter if you wish! My twitter name is @lexilooo, if you don't already follow me there!

my week, currently

I've seen a few posts like this recently, and thought it might be fun to do. I've been in a bit of a blogging rut recently, it seems, so maybe something like this will help get me out of it?

Reading: The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy. Apparently I'm wildly into World War II-era novels recently (oh what am I saying, I'm often reading them!). I recently finished The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult and His Majesty's Hope by Susan Elia MacNeal, and will review them both soon. Well, I'll review The Storyteller soon, but His Majesty's Hope a bit later this spring. It will be released in May, and I received an Advanced Readers Copy, and was asked to wait until closer to the release date to post my review. Needless to say, I loved both and can't wait to write about them!

Eating: Likely, a wheat bagel with chive cream cheese with my coffee. I wrote this post last night, but scheduled it to post for the morning, so I am assuming that is what I will be eating when it goes live  ;)

Listening: At time of writing? I have Kourtney and Kim Take Miami on in the background. Gosh this show is ridiculous, and I can't believe I watch it, but I do. Khloe is the best of the three, in my opinion, and most days, I can't decide who is worse, Kim or Kourt....usually Kim, I'd say. She's just awful awful awful. Awful.

Thinking:  How to really get organized this spring. I feel a bit out of it (maybe this blogging rut is spread into other parts of my life?), and I need to do some serious purging and cleaning. I think I might actually make a schedule. This house is a disaster. Also, thinking that I am excited about a sewing day with the DC Modern Quilt Guild this weekend! We meet monthly, and it's been several months since I've been able to attend a meeting, and I am looking forward to seeing the girls and some inspiration, and also, work on a baby quilt for my sweet friend Christine's new little baby Ada!

Smelling:  Not a lot at all. I have an awful, awful cold and can't smell a thing at the moment!

Wishing:  For a vacation. I spent most of last week in Las Vegas for a wedding, which was spectacular, and worthy of an entire post or two, but I can't be the only one who often needs a vacation from vacation! We took a red-eye back Saturday night, and I was miserable for the second half of it - my ears were going crazy during the descent, and hurt so, so much, and I spent most of Sunday in bed because I felt so awful! I've been a bit jet-lagged since. So, another vacation is in need, I think!

Laughing: At the fact that this "Private Investigator" took Kim K along on both a ride-along and to talk to "clients." Really? That is allowed?! Please.

Wearing: Yoga pants. I pretty much change into them as soon as I get home from work. Ahhh, cozies. Perfection.

Loving:  The previews for the new Tine Fey/Paul Rudd movie Admission. It looks really funny! The line "Mom?" "Who is it?" "Who else calls you Mom?" gets me every time! I want to see it!

Wanting: A pair of mint green jeans. I know, I know, I'm totally late to that party, but I've just decided that I can't live much longer without a pair.

Needing:  A new job. Like crazy. 'Nuff said.

Feeling: Like I really need to get back to going to yoga regularly. I was good for a while, and then got out of habit of going. This cycle repeats itself all the time, and I need to change this! Also, I want to try barre classes. I took a spin class a few months ago, but it really bothered my knee, but I've heard the barre classes can be good.

Clicking:  Too much pinterest, of course.

That's my week! What does yours look like?

would you eat these?

I saw these snack-sized bags at CVS last week. I almost bought all three, but didn't. I tend to like weird flavored chips, I will admit, but I'm not too sure about these!  

Have you tried any of them? Were they good? What is the weirdest chip flavor you've ever had? What did you think?
