Wash & Wag

Over the weekend I took this little lady to Scrubbers, a self-serve dog wash and grooming joint. The staff were wonderfully accommodating and I actually think that Molly had a good time! The decision for the destination bath developed when I realized that I didn't have a space to wash her (and I didn't want to clean up after!).

Smart dog owners have started to make adjustments to their homes for their pets. Check out the dog shower recently featured on Craft1945, a fantastic blog dedicated to to the craft of building and architecture. What lucky, pampered pups!?

Hold the Phones

I just received word that the best of two worlds are combining. Pavement, the reason our generation is full of talented, independent thinkers, is joining up with Ace of Cakes, an awesome reality show on the true life of cake baking - no, really. Though it's not scheduled yet, keep an eye out for a Pavement-dedicated delicious creation. Fingers crossed that it holds a candle to the famous Orange Amp Tribute to Clutch.

State-of-the-Art: Art

A round of applause to Steve and Derota Coy for their innovative artwork posted on the Roosevelt Hotel last Saturday. As a Detroiter, you may have noticed Hygienic Dress League gas-mask murals throughout the city. However, the reason behind the street art has often been misunderstood - a catalyst for success in a modern environment. This recent Detroit News article, Street Artists Put Unique Brand on Detroit, explains the details of their latest gorilla marketing plan to boost recognition for avant-garde art.

Dunder Simpsons

Did anyone catch the into to The Simpson's Tree House of Horror XXI on Sunday? It's a true story that my love for The Simpson's and The Office has diminished over the past few seasons, but the intro spoof on Dunder Mifflin was really funny. Sorry for the low-budg YouTube post, it was the best version I could find!

Berkley Illustration has the most fun prints for sale on Etsy. The suits just make me laugh! What regal creatures?!

These images would look really great posted as a set in a game room. Each concept is a digital archival print created from original pen and ink drawing. Fun colors, creative designs and affordable price points parlay these prints into a tri-fecta!

Smitten for Mittens

I just love the cozy-knit mitten designs from Kate Spade. The new Winter collection features such cute statement pieces that add a little pop of color. A Siberian Tiger Pull Through Scarf will pair perfectly with a black jacket. Fun accessories are an easy way to add some flair to a bundled up, cold weather outfit! Thanks Miss Spade!

Well Said.

This came in from my friend this morning.

"seeing as I don't spend about 15 minutes in the day care prior to work, take an extra 15 minutes in the cafeteria getting breakfast and socializing, then come up to chat with co-workers about kids in school, who's pregnant, etc., hop on facebook till about 10:30, go to meetings where we schedule another one to talk about the same thing, work out in the gym, then "work" at my desk while I eat my lunch, plug in a few stats into an automatically formatted excel sheet, attend a "networking" event, then go home right at five…. Is it cool if I change my hours from 1 to 3:30?"

Thank you, Lions!

People laughed when I picked up the Lion's defense on my Fantasy Team. I'm okay with it. I might not be super thrilled with my first round pick, Ray Rice, but I'm definitely okay with the Lion's D.
