It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me personally that dinosaurs are huge part of our family. We go to Morrison’s Natural History Museum often where we can see fossils, dig for fossils and even help drill/clean fossils. We even visited The Dinosaur Place in Mystic, CT. They have lifesize statues of a lot of dinosaurs. Here is Brady and I a couple years ago next to a brachiosaurus.

Because of our love of all things dinosaur, we love Dinosaur Train on PBS. The show provides not only some pretty amazing dinosaurs and a darn catchy theme song, but they also sneak in learning by teaching children about the different time periods, which dinosaurs lived where and what they ate and did during that time period. They now have a large toy line, DVDs and of course, books. I recently found out PBS Kids, Dinosaur Train and Buddy himself are celebrating the Association of American Publishers Get Caught Reading campaign for a second year, a campaign devised to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read!

I used to have a laptop desktop that was so full of folders and random documents, I felt like the TV show Hoarders was going to come and yell at me for it’s condition. Really, it should have been condemned. I would be embarrassed when others would see my laptop.

Then I saw on Pinterest some desktop organizer images. What are these amazing things??!! I saw many that had different categories, calendars, photos and more. I thought to myself, “Self, You have photoshop and love to tinker around… You should make your own!” And that I did.

I’m pretty proud of this bad boy. But I didn’t want to keep it just for myself. 🙂

You can download one for your own computer. The dimensions are 1280 x 1000. You can clip, stretch, crop to fit your desktop. To download the full size image – click the image below. You can paste in your own photo to personalize it even further, the dimensions for that are roughly 280 x 400.

Wait, what?! Yeah, you read that right. So totally not related to anything, but I was at a great event last night with the Mile High Mamas crew. When the girls get together, who knows what we will start talking about. Impotent Monkeys apparently.

Started out innocently enough. The birthday gal Rajean was talking to me about wine. I love me some wine. I was telling her about how my new love is for “unoaked chards” and how I didn’t even know what that meant, but they taste devine! Then it reminded me of a wine that I love that’s local to Colorado.
