Total Basset Case: The Greatest Tweet of My Life

Jun 27, 2013

The Greatest Tweet of My Life

Something happened last night and I am still smiling about...

First things first....Pioneer Woman came out with a new Charlie book on Tuesday.
In no new news, I am a teensy bit obsessed with PW and all things she creates/produces.
As soon as I saw the new book I ordered it from Amazon and yesterday when I came home it was on our porch (thank you Amazon Prime). 
I tore it opened and showed it to Floyd.
He was beside himself with excitement.
Can't you tell?
#ecstatic (Floyd's hashtag input)

I then tweeted Floyd's excitement to the world, and most importantly, PW herself.

And then the GREATEST thing in the world happened.
I died.
Like shut the front door, baaa-naaa-nas, Rachel Zoe DIED.
I jumped and screamed and jumped some more around the house and scared Floyd half to death.

I will 100% admit that I'm a huge dork and this literally made my week month.

PW is one of the reasons I started blogging and she is clearly a superstar of a blogger, writer and all around lady.
Plus she has 2 bassets and makes delicious food so you just can't really go wrong with that.
So this just put it over the top for me.
Stick a fork in me I am done.

Now the real question is, how do we get her to invite Floyd and I out to the ranch for a play date with Charlie and Walter?? #thatdoesntmakemesoundcreepyatall

And Floyd did get his bedtime story

And now I shall end this before I start to sound even crazier.

Happy Thursday friends.
I'm hosting a small cocktail party for some ladies at my house tonight and can't wait to show you guys the details!

Lisa @ Two Martinis said...

YAY! How exciting!! I'm imagining Floyd's probably all like 'whatever, mom, why wouldn't she tweet me? I'm a big f-ing deal.' (I'm not sure if Floyd swears or not, but in my mind he definitely does.)
