Live, Love, Laugh… Creep?

Today is the Girl Next Door Grows Up – Feel Good Friday meme.

One her prompts is to post five things that made you extremely happy this week. Sydney could take up all five of those things. She had me laughing so hard, I could barely breathe. Please don’t ever lose your spirit of fun and laughter. Pleasepleaseplease.

Before I present my five things, I would like to thank iPhone photo gallery for this post. It wouldn’t have been possible if not for the photos + videos and tons of memories to smile about (and share).

**I swear I don’t work for Apple!

One of Sydney’s favorite things to do (maybe it’s a teenage girl thing) is creeping. It’s not like the old days of jeepers creepers; better known as pervs. It’s basically teenage girls at the mall. They hide behind something and take a picture of a teenage boy they like. Then post it on Facebook with a title, Creepin’ Hard. They giggle and find the stealth exciting. Not sure if they ever actually meet these boys, or if that is even the point? Maybe, it’s just the rush of not getting caught crushing creeping.

Anyway, I decided she MUST teach me this “creepin” skill, because I am all about spying bonding with my kid.

Place: Wal-Mart
Person of interest: Jason
Hiding barrier: End Cap

He has noooo idea.

Hee hee hee.

I had to take a photo of the creeper teacher in action. You know, like taking notes.

After my lesson, I creeped Sydney. Pretty good, eh?

So now, I’m officially a creeper – in a good way. Ahem.

Sometime this week, I discovered I was featured by WordPress under a couple of photo tags. Photos, Pictures, or photos; all pull up this page. I took a picture of it with my iPhone, since I have no idea how long it will be there.

Pssssssst, I totally creeped WordPress – hee hee.

It may not be Freshly Pressed, but it’s pretty cool to be static at the top of these popular tags searches.

It’s been ONE month since our 10-10-10 wedding. That’s right. An entire month has flown by, but on this day in history, we totally got creeped! had some beautiful photos taken.

After the ceremony……

I see this on Facebook.

Assaulted by a well of happy tears, it made a cherished day even better, and of course…… I took a picture with my brilliant iPhone. Which? Was playing our reception music. And? The reason I was on my iPhone at the wedding. Seriously people – we are a family of technology. I could have texted I do. Heh!

Shopping with these two and saving the photos.

The coolest kids cats around.

Hey, you never know when you might need sunglasses. …..better to creep you with….

Two adorable future creepers shade wearing shopping partners = happy awesome.

Finding Build-A-Bear Star Wars collections = happy awesome x 100!

I totally creeped a pic!

I mean really!?! Are you as excited as me? I want to collect them all. We could reenact the whole movie – bear style. They have light sabers!

In the month of July – the girls were at their dad’s. I got hooked on America’s Got Talent and the girls loved it too. Right before bed, Bridget starts dancing. She just dances and dances and dances. It was happy feet. It was river dance. It was her being the most talent America has ever seen – EVER – at four years old. The crowd goes wild!

I loved her enthusiasm and whipped out my iPhone before she got shy to quickly capture. What happened next is best explained as a skitzy half greyhound/half jeeper creeper named Anna, wanting to creep dance too. Since she is a DOG and doesn’t know HOW to dance, it came out like a mosh. Apparently, Anna dog only knows how to slam dance.

Here’s what I think, Bridget hears river dance music. Anna dog? Metal. Mosh pit. This is my favorite video clip of all time.

I love how she keeps dancing. What a performer! Ha ha!

These are a few of the things that made me feel good this week (and always will).

Hope you have a great weekend and have a fabulous Feel Good Friday! Swing by Erika’s and see what everyone else feels good about.

Laughter puts your brain, your central nervous system and your whole being into a state of free play.

Jeeper Creeper

Don’t let the pretty twin coppers fool you.

My dog Anna (half greyhound/half ??) isn’t just a pretty face. She is a creeper.

She likes to watch. And she watches………………………..everything.

The yard.



The neighborhood.

I noticed her creepy behavior at the duplex. All she would do is stare out the window, so much so, the blinds fell apart where her pokey nose kept looking. And she couldn’t resist. She couldn’t not creep. It’s her thing.

I won’t sugar coat it, she has issues. Maybe she thinks someone is watching her? Maybe she is just the best watchdog on the planet? Maybe she is just so scared she watches her own back? Constantly. And she is not just a creeper, but a barker. She barks at everything she sees that creeps her out. A plastic bag floating by. A walker. A runner. A car. A leaf. Jason. The lawnmower. You name it and she goes ballistic, then she runs and hides. Why? I don’t know, because she is a creeper and that’s what creepers do?

At her backyard post, she spots squirrels and she doesn’t even go completely barking ballistic, but more or less, shakes and whimpers at them. It makes me wonder…..what is SHE going to do? If I let her out and they run away, who is she going to creep? It’s not like she would catch a squirrel. I mean, she is fast, but not that fast.

I let her creep up on an Armadillo one day. I saw it while walking her on the leash. She starts to get close, and then what happens? She gets the creeps and darts away. WHAT? This thing just sniffed her way and goes on digging through our yard. I’m telling you this dog likes to creep, but no action. It goes against her delicate introverted nature. Now Hoss Salem comes up on the same armadillo, scares it so bad it jumps ten feet in the air. Which was GREAT! Salem doesn’t creep, she terrifies. Awesome.

But back to Anna.

The watcher.

Creeping in action.

I wonder if she knows I’m watching HER. The creeper getting creeped.

And just so you know, the creeping isn’t so bad, it’s the barking at – whatever the creep it is?!? – that does me in.

She’s staring through your windows. She’s watching your people go.

She gon find you. She gon find you.

Hey Antoine Dodson, run and tell that. Run and tell that.
