WordPress weekly photo challenge: My 2012 in pictures of cows

I love the WordPress new photo gallery feature and this is a great way to display a lot of photos in one post. I also love the opportunity to review a year of cows by showcasing the best of the year. If you missed my Top 10 Best Cows of 2011, make sure you take a look.

This year, there was no runaway cow (at least that I know of) and no ugly cow sofa, but still plenty of memorable cows for 2012. They include my very own cow slippers, as well as a whole shelf of cow slippers I almost bought, skiing cows, cow artwork, the Skinny Cow, the American Flag cow, the cow from the Puss in Boots movie, the udder rings, the birthday balloon cow, the grossest birthday card cow, the cow flashlight, the bug-eyed cow, the hot air balloon cow and the lawn mowing / bulimic cow. Enjoy!

The many cows of Christmas – Part 2

Yesterday, I explained how this Christmas has been full of cows when it comes to gifts. Here’s part 2 of my cow gift showcasing series.

So what do you think would go well with a cow headband? How about some cow slippers?

These cow slippers are super comfortable because they don’t have a hard sole, just some non-slippery pattern. Really, they’re more like thick socks that keep my feet warm, which makes me happy because my tile floor is so chilly. And they feature cute and happy looking cows, so they’re a pleasure to wear. Surprisingly, my kids haven’t put them on their own feet yet, even though they’ve worn the cow headband several times already. Let’s hope things continue this way because I’m not sure I want to share these. If you’re looking for cow slippers, Amazon’s got a whole bunch of different styles available. So many choices!

Can you guess what other cow gifts I got? One of the gifts goes very well with these cow slippers.

It’s an invasion of cow slippers at Sears!

This past weekend I decided to make a trip to my local Sears department store and shop for new clothes for the boys. I try to stick to the clearance racks to get the best deals, even if the clothes are a couple sizes bigger than what they need right now. I always think it’s better to get the good deal now than have to pay full price when I really need the clothes.

I managed to find beautiful winter sweaters and jackets at less than $10 each. Actually several of them were just $4.99! I also took advantage of Sears’ Kidvantage guarantee, which lets you exchange any worn out clothes for new clothes as long as they are the same size. Knowing how much my boys love to tear big holes at the knee, I try to buy all their pants at Sears and on Sunday, I got three brand new pairs of pants for free. On top of that, I used a 15% off coupon and the cashier gave it back to me at the end of the transaction, in case I wanted to use it again before it expires. All in all I came home with 14 pieces of clothing for a total of $56. Ka-ching!

While at the register, I couldn’t help but look to my side and that’s where I spotted a very large display of … cow slippers!

Look at cute they are! I love the yellow flower on the ear. And for $2.99 a pair, they’re also a steal. And no, I didn’t get any but that’s only because they were all kids’ sizes. Snif.

Cute cow slippers

Curious George goes on a cow ride

I’d like to start today’s post by thanking one of my faithful readers, Pseu at Pseu’s Blog, for sharing a photo of her cow slippers after reading yesterday’s post on.. cow slippers! I thought nobody bought cow slippers, but Pseu proved me wrong. Look how cute her own cow slippers are. Blue eyed cows, nonetheless!

Tonight the boys watched a few episodes of Curious George and one of them was called “Curious George Stain Remover”. In this episode, George tries to clean up a juice stain on a rug and ends up flooding the whole house. He borrows a water pump from the farmer neighbor but needs help carry it back to the house, so the cow helps out.

Here are the cows’ first appearance in the show:

 And here’s Curious George getting a ride on the cow!

The funny part comes at the end when George forgets to bring the cow back on the farm. Here’s the yellow man in the hat meeting the cow in his living room:

 I’m not sure who’s more surprised, the cow or the man in the yellow hat! Hey mister, has anyone ever told you how silly you look with that giant yellow hat on your head?

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas #4: cow slippers, anyone?

kreativ blogger awardI’d like to start today’s post by thanking Pedro the Cat for rewarding my daily efforts with the Kreativ Blogger Award earlier this week. I know how narcissistic cats can be, so for a cat to award me something, it really has to mean a lot. Thank you, Pedro! You’ll always be my favorite cow spotted cat.

Earlier this week, I subscribed to Amazon’s daily deals for Cyber Week (yes, it’s not just Cyber Monday anymore!). I’m not sure what happened to my subscription but I didn’t get any email notifications the whole week. Well, at least until this Friday morning and I’m betting all the good stuff is already gone. I’ve been looking for a great deal on a netbook but so far I’ve only had lots of missed opportunities.

I still clicked on the deals link in the Amazon email to see if I would find something I really liked. I didn’t find any netbooks (snif) but look at what Amazon is trying to sell as a Christmas present: cow slippers!

 I think they’re OK and certainly funny looking but then I got curious and wanted to see what other cow slippers were available out there in Cyber World. Wow, if you ever want to get lost in there, just type cow slippers…

I think these cow slippers are the cutest and therefore my favorite:

 Alright, maybe these toddler size cow slippers are the cutest after all. Too bad my kids’ feet are too big for them…

 Now, if you’re not a fan of slippers, you can still be happy and get these really funny cow socks! I’m dying to know if the Cow Lady has these already. I wonder what she asked Santa for Christmas…

 If you wear slippers, are they traditional looking or do they have a funny or interesting look to them?
