My RL dogs are no stranger to living a great life. In fact, they were sleeping on our bed when I was drafting this post.
They never used to, not openly anyway. There were times when I wake up to find my dogs quietly crept up next to me in bed, and I let that slide because they were too cute and cuddly. And there were times when I felt rotten and ordered my dogs to cuddle up in bed with me. But they were never allowed on the bed on their own.
I used to run this household with an iron fist. The dogs know where they stand. Or sit. Or lie. You know, whatever it is that dogs do.
That has been my pooches’ way of life for 4 years now.
Eversince The Man came home for good (he used to work away) and the baton Alpha Dog passed on to him, the dogs have found another world.
Another world where the ruler is pretty damn awesome.
I know I’m this mean and strict owner. LOL I can’t change myself.
And I fully acknowledge that the Man is the super fun one. I only need to look at how they greet him vs how they greet me when we come home from work.
How my dogs greet me: Sit until the car is nicely parked in the driveway, and come over to say hello, with polite wags of tails. Hello Mother, how are you, is your day well, can we please get fed when it is a convenient time for you, yes we have been behaving all day, if you find something wrong, I didn’t do it he/she did.
How my dogs greet my Man: They wait all day. Isthatdad’scar? No? No. What about that one? Is it that one? YAS, IT’S THAT ONE! OMG DADDADDADDAD HELICOPTERTAILWAGSTAILWAGSTAILWAGS I CAN’T DECIDE WHICH TOYS TO PRESENT TO YOU, RUN IN CIRCLES, I AM SO HAPPY AND OVERWHELMED THAT YOU ARE HOME!
A new round of The Challenge has started with the theme Castaway. For the July round seven designers have created beachy sun-bleached weathered decor items available at their main stores. Both Kuro and Shutter Field items are discounted for the month of July. In the scene above I’m featuring KuroEasy Breeze shack with 6 single and 10 couple animations on sale for 25% off. Also on display is Hate ThisCastaway Campfire with on/off touch for smoke and sound on the campfire, and 17 single and 14 couple poses on the hollow log. Lastly, Shutter Field has created two releases for the themed monthly shopping event both 30% off during July. In the foreground of the picture is the Castaway Bed and Lantern with 16 single and 8 couple sits and wearable props. Completing the Castaway collection is the Outhouse Set featuring a twig makeshift bathroom with toilet paper, shovel and buckets. There are several other designer who have created pieces for The Challenge, so check out the website and Let’s Get Decorating!
Studio Skye: Tropical Plants, Palm Trees and Sand Dunes
Kuro:Easy Breeze (25% off discount duration of the event)
These adorable floating lights are from tarte @ Project Limited. As the event name suggested, this is limited and will never be sold again. They come in three packs of prettiness and it was really hard to choose which ones I wanted. You can get the fatpack for 750L too, which I was tempted to do but I held back because I may or may not have blown my lindens at C88. *cough*
[Fetch] is closing down…
But fear not, she is not gone forever! She will be joining forces with Jian to make more pretties. 😀
This is looking to be a fun event! This year’s theme is A Midsummer’s Night Dream. There are only 90 tickets available for each time slot and you can buy tickets for L$350. More info here.
Take lots of pictures if you do attend the prom so I can SLive vicariously through you. 😀 I would love to go, but I have a family gathering that weekend. <3
And then make plans to attend The Ball
Juno Mantel and I are hosting a Regency Ball on September 10th and y’all are cordially invited! 😀 We have uhhhhmmms and aaahhhss this plan for nearly 2 years now, and Juno decided to take action and just do it (and drag me with her).
There will be vendors making and selling things specifically within the theme if you’re worried about not being properly attired. However, we’re aiming for the sim to be a destination and not a commercial space so if you’re just coming over for a gander, you’re more than welcomed to! 😀 There will be RP opportunities, but you don’t have to RP if you don’t want to. (As a sidenote, I am planning to be there as a clucky, straight-laced, overbearing and nosy middle-aged woman, so be warned!).
We will be publishing more info closer to the date. o/
