Picture Me Friday & I love Zappos!

It’s Friday. It’s the end of the second week of January… and I thought I could use a little fun. So, here is Picture Me Friday which includes the cat, new bedding and SHOES! Indy This past weekend, the kiddo and I put together his Indiana Jones temple from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Six hundred pieces and three hours later, here is the fruits of our labor: It’s actually pretty cool but the pieces keep falling off. Seriously considerly glueing it all together. LOL Sampson (a.k.a.
