Wouldn’t you like a cow with your own name on it?

Earlier this week I took my kids to our local Michael’s art & craft store so we could take a close look at the Halloween decorations and crafts. They have tons of them and it’s really hard to pick just one, especially if the three of us have to agree…

While we browsed the aisles, I spotted something new: a set of 320 animal stickers (in case 300 stickers are not enough for you).

Did you notice the cow is right in the middle of the page? And the pig is not far either. So now you have the option to assign your name to almost any animal, including a cow. How cute!

Cows hang out at the coffee shop

A couple of days ago, I visited a local coffee shop with my friend for coffee break (tea for me, of course) and good conversation. This coffee shop opened up just a couple of weeks ago in our town and we both like to support small businesses. The first time we went there, we noticed the decor was quite plain and the walls pretty bare. And no, there were no cows on the walls or on any of the shelves.

The second time around, I did spot a few cows. Unfortunately they are being contained in a small fridge on the front counter, keeping company to the apple juice and fancy sodas. It doesn’t seem to bother them, though. Look how happy and sexy they are. I heard organic reduced fat chocolate milk will do that to you.

Want to look cool? How about a cow stamp?

When I picked up my eldest at school a few days ago, one of his classmates was walking around with a small stamp, asking for anyone to volunteer their hands for a stamping exercise. Both of my kids were glad to participate but I was the one the most surprised by the results.

Can you guess what the stamp image was?

You see, even elementary school kids think cows are cool!

It’s Chloe the dancing cow!

I have so many cow sightings to show you  and I’m not doing a great job at catching up, am I? But I swear I’ll get there, and so for today I’d like to introduce you to the very sexy Chloe, the dancing cow.

We found her at our local Michael’s art & craft store and we even tried it as it entices us on the box. Well, you won’t believe it but Chloe the cow wiggles and shakes her booty, and even does the splits. Now, how sexy is that? OK, maybe not as sexy as Daisy the pole dancing cow, but I think it’s a close second. Don’t you agree?

Watch out for cow overload!

Sorry for the blog hiatus. I had to take care of some personal issues for a little while but I’m back, with a boatload of cow sightings to report. I’ve got some really interesting cows to share, starting with the ones I saw yesterday. And it was a lot of cows.

I went out for brunch at a local restaurant called Gingham’s with a group of friends. I had visited their website earlier that week and realized it was quite focused on “meat” items, which is not my preference.

Well, here’s the first hint I was definitely entering meatland: the front door.

As soon as we walked in, the first words coming out of my mouth were, Holy cow! Perched on top of a wall, this all American cow was staring at us.

But wait, there’s more. This cow had friends keeping her company. Plenty of friends.

And for the great finale, I present you with the real jumping cow! Remember the German girl whose parents didn’t want to buy her a horse, so she trained Luna the cow to be ridden like a horse? Yep, a large canvas of her and her bovine friend were overlooking our table. Nice!
