Super Sized

Items that come super sized:

Hair (seriously???)

Mansions (wow!!)

McDonald's meals (Mmmm, fries)

My sister's dog!!!
Meet June Bug, the Great Dane. The word "ginormous" was created for this dog. Her back is about an inch lower than my hips and when she stands next to me we are basically face to face. She's 130 some-odd pounds of lean muscle. She makes Van look tiny.

Her paws are as big as my hand - and so, so thick!

The bed Niki and I made her is a crib mattress with quilts. She regularly falls off the mattress and uses her bed AND Van's. My entire living room is now a dog bed. I have had her 6 days and she has eaten nearly an entire 25lb bag of dog food. When I come home, she greets me by jumping up on just her back legs and her front paws go well over my head.

But she is just the sweetest, sweetest thing! Lorelei is her new BFF and she's incredibly gentle with her. It's amazing to watch them play!

Kisses (and just after she stole the cupcake :))

Just chillin' (really, could this be cuter?)

So there ya go- mine and Van's charge for the next week or so. She made her trip from Guam in championship form and has settled right into our lives!

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
