It Pays to be a Dog's Ho!

I was so excited when I looked through the sidelight on my front door to see a box sitting there, with a very cute mailing label. I knew that my newly acquired reign as one of Crumpet's Strumpets had truly paid off! The roosters were here! Woooooooooooo hooooooooooo!

If, for some reason you do not read Nikki's Blah Blah Blah Blog, like maybe because you live in an alternate universe, you should click here and see how she announced the winners of her 100th post giveaway. It was pure frickin' genius, I promise you. And I'm not even saying that 'cause I was one of the winners either! While you're there, be sure to give Ozzie a good hiney scratching, but Crumpet deserves that, plus a belly rub since he's made me one of his special hos. Have pity on these poor boys. Nikki does unspeakable things to them, such as dresses them up in feminine attire. Then she wonders why they eat her mail.

But anyhoo, let's get to the goodies! I think I may have let out a little Picket girly squeal when I saw my package! Look at how cute the mailing label is!

Whew! Thank goodness she didn't use packing peanuts, 'cause I'd just vacuumed.

And look, she even sent a card! And just to let me know that she now knows how to pronounce my name correctly, she even spelled it phonetically! Now Nikki, you do know that Tiney is not pronounced the same as tiny, right?

She even wrote me a sweet note. I wish I could say that I teared up and felt all veklempt, but this is Nikki we're talking about. I laughed! Okay, honesty here. I laughed and felt all warm and fuzzy. But that could have been because I was hot from vacuuming and was covered in cat hair.

Ooh, what have we got here? It's my cute little rooster lamp (love the fringe on the shade!) and pretty rooster plate! I was so excited that I nearly didn't see the broken light bulb and almost sliced my finger clear off! Okay, slight exaggeration. I just wanna make Nikki feel bad that the bulb didn't make it even with her expert wrapping. But isn't it just my luck? A giveaway prize has to cost me money (the bulb) and caused me to have to re-vacuum so my kids wouldn't get little glass shards in their feet. (The bulb again)

All kidding aside, I love love love my rooster stash and will think of Nikki, Ozzie and Crumpie every time I look at either one! Thanks you boys, and you too Nikki! I wuvs ya!!!

Until Next Time, Tiney

    Congratulations on winning the contest-great stuff.

    You should be able to find the sugar free cheesecake in the bakery, in the open refrigerated case. They have a "no sugar added" cake, too. Just read the labels and decide which one you want. The "No sugar added" has a great crust, but more carbs. You can make your own crust with finely chopped nuts and Splenda.

    I've also bought a "no sugar added" apple pie,which is fabulous with "no sugar added" vanilla ice cream. And whipped cream is low carb if you add Splenda (or just buy extra creamy Redi-whip--but not Cool Whip, as it has more carbs).

    If you can't find these sugar free items at your Publix, you can order them. That's a great thing about Publix: they will special order stuff.

    I have also seen no sugar added muffins.

    Also, they have a nice selection of sugar free candy...however, I would advise moderation as it can have shocking gastronomic effects. When the fine print says, "May have laxative effect," believe it.

    Okay, crawling back into my writing hole...but taking my 4 net carb cheesecake with me.

  • SchmeckyGirl

  • Picket

    Morning girl.....ohhh what a great give lucky dawg you....Roosters!!!! There might be hope that I can 'countryfy you yet! lol lol I am still trying to get my kitchen back in order and nearly did myself in trying to redo the kitchen sink window...amazing what alittle fabric & a few straight pins will do..if you can keep the whole curtain from falling in the sink while you are doing the body splits as your chair goes one way and your legs go another!

    I can't wait to see you get all moved into your next place and show us how you decorate everything...I want to see that Rooster lamp plugged up and shining girl! Have a great week Tiny Teeny! ♥
