2010 Holiday Gift Ideas: IKEA 14-Piece Veggie Set

December 17, 2010


According to Gus, IKEA is the best store to find the cutest new toys. We spotted these food-related toys online and amazingly restrained ourselves from running out the door to go purchase them.  I don’t know how much longer we can hold out though.  Seriously. Yes, they are technically children’s toys, but Gus is gentle […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #5: Digby

December 8, 2010


According to Gus, Digby must be played with at least once per day. Gus received Digby as a gift several years ago and LOVES him.  Due to the intense amount of Digby play time, he’s made countless trips to the animal hospital.  During each “surgical procedure”, Gus holds vigil until he’s fully recovered.  The whole […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #4: Ball

December 1, 2010


According to Gus, ball is a word he can match with all sorts of toys. Like most dogs, Gus’s toy tunnel is filled with balls.  He has a football, basketball, mini tennis ball, and one giant blue ball.  He’s had countless others over the years, but sadly, many were lost after Saturday trips to the […]

2010 Iowa Football

November 27, 2010


According to Gus, the end of the 2010 Iowa Football season couldn’t come fast enough. The past 12 Saturdays were riddled with anxiety as we watched our beloved Hawkeyes play their 2010 season.  Iowa started in the top 10, fell out of after a tough loss, bounced back into the top 10, only to fall […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #3: Husky

November 24, 2010


According to Gus, Husky is a trustworthy and loyal friend.  Apparently, he also happens to make a fantastic pillow. Husky was technically the very first stuffed animal we received for Gus.  Gus’s dad was given this stuffed animal from one of his elementary students.  It was sort of an odd gift to receive, but we […]

Word Whiz Wednesday #2: Cobra

November 17, 2010


According to Gus, Cobra is one of his nearest and dearest friends. He also happens to be one of the first presents Gus received.  Gus had only been home for a couple of days before he received his first package in the mail.  His cousins from Oregon had shipped him all sorts of goodies.  A […]


November 12, 2010


According to Gus, red furry monsters are a great way to begin the weekend. Remember when we mentioned how much Gus likes presents?  We meant it.  He doesn’t care if it’s a Yelp sweatband or a new dog toy, as long as it’s a “present”. We recently dined at Mama’s Cafe and noticed the toy machine […]
