Lunch Date at the Zoo!

LunchDate

What a wonderful place the local Zoo is! Here in Fresno, they have the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, filled with more animals than you would expect and a newly added sea lion exhibit. I had not been to the zoo in years and figured it would be great to visit all those lovely animals on the first of the year. There are so many reasons to visit your local zoo, such as supporting your community, learning about animals, getting exercise in an exciting environment, and of course experiencing the petting zoo! Take a look at some of the beautiful animals I encountered during the visit. I am sure that you will want to go soon after viewing them!!! ROAR!

I got to feed a giraffe! Very exciting and very slobbery! Loved it!!!

This guy had the longest hair I had ever seen, which is probably why his lady friends was grooming him the entire time.

New Week, New Outlook!

Poster by Jay Graham

Hello all and welcome to Monday! How was the weekend and how do you think your week is going to go? Lately my weeks have been blending in with my weekends, creating a sort of dream-like (or nightmare-like) state. Working countless hours on the computer and countless hours on renovating a house can feel so overwhelming and leaves me exhausted, but in the end, I know that all of this work will result in something to smile at. Everyone knows that infamous quote, the one that I often roll my eyes at. Something about the journey, not the destination? Anyhow, I am on quite a journey as of lately and there better be some mai tai’s when I get to my destination! πŸ˜‰

If you have any quotes, images, or motivational tips, let Polka Dot Tango know! We love those kinds of things!

Motivational Monday is Here!!!!

Bubbles always seem magical to me.

Hello all and welcome to the beginning of the work week. This weekend was filled with birthday parties, cool breezes in warm weather, and some much needed face time with the family. This morning I came across a great tumblr at observando.net. There are many beautiful images and words for you to look at, so many that when I got to page 56 I realized that I needed to get back to work. Anywho, hope you enjoy these inspirational words and fantastic imagery on this Monday.

So true.

This should be tattooed on my forehead.

Easier said than done.

I LOVE THIS.

This reminds me of sherbet and sherbet makes me happy.
