Okay Friends – Here We Go!
My sweet friends at Nikitaland have started this monthly issue of Pay It Forward. We asked for you to keep this in mind all month and to share things here today on what you have been able to do. Paying it forward is not for bragging purposes – it’s an attempt to show how many different things we can do to pay it forward – lots of them don’t even include money. Gestures that we take for granted may be a God send to another person.
This month mom is challenging you to pick one day and give every person you meet some type of compliment. Whether it be they look terrific, they did a great job or they are a great friend. Tell everyone something for one entire day. Will YOU accept this personal challenge? Keep up with what you do for the month my friends.
My buddy Nikitaland made up a good deeds sheet. You can get it here. You can print it, hang it on your fridge and just jot some things down that you do during the month. That way at our next meet up, you can share what you have done to PAY IT FORWARD.
AND if you are interested in getting some Pay it Forward bracelets, check out Nikitaland’s post here for ordering information. Believe me friends – WE CAN ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Next meet up will be August 5, 2015 – mark your calendars!

My friends – thank YOU so very much for everyone’s wonderful responses to my and Fozzie’s Shopping Around the World blog posts. We are having so much fun seeing the different prices from around the world AND looking at some intriguing recipes and dinner suggestions. They are so totally awesome! Let’s keep up the great work – remember to link back to my blog here so we can keep up with who is playing and keep up with all of the recipes.
Mark your calendars this month for Wednesday, July 29, 2015. This month will again be FIVE items of your choice in a meal. Go for what you know. What meal is your ‘go to’ meal that you fix regularly at your house? What meal screams COMFORT to you? What does your family absolutely love when you fix it? Price at least FIVE of the items and then share your recipe and hopefully a picture of your meal.
Hope to see you here my friends. Happy Shopping and Happy Cooking!

Hello my friends to another great week of Paw Time with Houdini. I hope that you’ve had a wonderful week – and a great holiday weekend. We’ve all been trying to stay cool here at the Hotel Thompson. We are ALL over Summer now and ready for some cooler weather. And no we are not like those peeps in the winter that say we are ready for Summer and vice versa. We all kind of like it a little cool. This heat just makes it so miserable to do anything. And living in the south, you add in the humidity with it and yuck.
There are some things going on here at the Hotel Thompson that will be interesting in the next couple of weeks. One of them has to do with Bacon – barks! He doesn’t know yet but I know the secret – secret evil smiles. I overheard mom/dad talking about it and no I can’t tell you what it is … yet. But it’s going to be hilarious. Okay maybe not so much for that spoiled oinker but amusing for everyone else here. Just wait.
And mom took some great pictures of me this week. The first one is me wearing my pink shirt – nods head. Real men wear pink 🙂 I just woke up so I still had some bedhead going on with that picture. But it’s still cute. The other picture is of me and Mouse Girl. She’s my partner in crime. My partner in having fun. Isn’t she hubba hubba cute?
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!
