Music Mondays: Walk Off the Earth ~ I Knew You Were Trouble

Walk off the Earth is a Canadian rock band that was formed in 2006 in Burlington, Ontario, and has gained success around the world by making low-budget music videos of covers and originals. We've all heard the original Taylor Swift version, and while I don't mind the original, I LOVE this one so much more. So take a listen, and tell me what you think.

No apologies. He'll never see you cry,
Pretends he doesn't know that he's the reason why.

Following along with Wendy.

Meet the newest additions to our household.

Back in June Connor picked up a snail when we were out running errands. He was fascinated and it was kind of cute, so we decided to take it home. I've been wanting to get Connor a pet of his own and was thinking a fish might work, but when Connor picked up the snail I thought "What the heck, why not snail?"

It survived 3 days and then died on us.

Connor didn't even notice but I did feel guilty for killing the poor guy.

So I turned to trusty Google and did a bit of research. Lo and behold, while snails are relatively easy and cheap to take care of they do require a few things to survive. Namely plenty of misting and a constant source of calcium to grow their shells.

Armed with this new knowledge I was determined to give snails another go. But they're pretty hard to find in the summer.

So I actually squealed when I left work one rainy day to discover dozens and dozens of snails covering the walkway. I quickly looked through my bag and grabbed a zip lock baggie (what you don't carry zip lock bags in your purse to carry treasures home?) and carefully picked up 3 and brought them home to surprise Connor. They were a hit!

And the biggest surprise is that weeks later they're still alive!

Someone finally decided he wanted to wear underwear, just like Mommy and Papa. And look how proud he is! He asked for them himself and then insisted on trying on all 5 pairs. He even posed in front of the mirror. After weeks of being potty trained we're finally on the last steps. He's getting so big!!
