Lucky Lily! Congratulations on winning the awesome card deck.

And good on you for goofing off. After all the work you've been doing, you deserve it!

Denise Covey said...

Congrats to Lily. Lucky girl! Yes, we all need a break from social media. I try. Have a great little breather! And lots of laughs. That dog video was hilarious. :-)

Sue Bursztynski said...

I've tried posting, but that Captcha thing was missing instructions and wouldn't let me through. Anyway, have a good break!

Suzanne Furness said...

We all need to step back from the internet from time to time - enjoy the break, Lexa. I will probably do the same for a couple of weeks next month too.

JeffO said...

Thanks for the dogs--enjoy your goof-off and weekend!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Yes, we all need a break from social media--and everything--sometimes. Enjoy your time relaxing.

I need a break too.

Rhonda Albom said...

What a great idea, a decreed week of goofing off. Everyone should do it.

I love the dancing doggie!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations to Lily.
That must've been one drunk dog.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

The doggie pictures are priceless. Thanks for starting my day with a smile. I'm tired too. A relaxing weekend sounds good. Enjoy.

Congrats to Lily! And thanks for the laughs. The dancing dog cracked me up. Enjoy your break!

Tamara Narayan said...

I'm all for a day off. Who knew it took so long to write a guest blog? Those dog memes and videos are hilarious. Enjoyed 'em.

Rachna Chhabria said...

Congratulations to Lily. Lexa, once in a while we all should take a day off.

Julia Thorley said...

We all need a break from technology every now and then. I'm looking forward to switching everything off for a couple of weeks when I take some holiday at the end of next week.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Love that dancing dog!!

Cathy Kennedy said...

Lexa, we all need a blog break from time to time. I swear I think I need another one! I made good progress with my blog repairs when I was off at the end of June and now it's just slow going. I'm seriously thinking about taking another one next month to try to wrap this mess up once and for all. Oh well, enjoy yourself. Your sillies fit perfectly with the relaunch of my Friday Sillies. :) Have a laughtastic weekend!

I love the idea of an official goofing off week! I think we should all have those at least one or twice a month, maybe three times even :-)

messymimi said...

Everyone needs a goofing off week, at least once a year. Maybe more often.

Medeia Sharif said...

Enjoy your time off. It's important to get away from it all from time to time. Fun dogs.

L.G. Keltner said...

I like the idea of a Goofing Off Week. I might have to try that sometime! Have a great weekend!

Shah Wharton said...

Loved this Lexa. I know what you mean about needing a break from it all - I've had a long break, and it's difficult to get back on the train! Love pooches!!

Enjoy the weekend!

Drunk dog wins the laugh off with Lambada dog coming a close second. I love Goofy, he needs to get more Disney Spotlight. Enjoy your time away from social media Lexa and use it wisely.
