Attention: Pug people!
This is one of the most exciting projects I have ever encountered.
Introducing 1000 Pugs!!!
1000 Pugs is the ultimate expression of pug love by San Francisco pet photographer, Amanda Bradshaw. Her goal is equal parts genius, ridiculous, and insane: to photograph 1000 pugs in a single year.
Amanda’s goal is three-fold:
- Use 1000 Pugs as a vehicle to raise money for pug rescue ($10k, to be exact)
- Create the ultimate celebration of all things pug!
- Showcase the largest single collection of pug cuteness this world has ever seen (in both online and printed form)
Each pug photographed will be featured in the 1000 Pugs online gallery as well as 1000 Pugs the book, which is planned for release in 2013 and will feature all 1000 pugs.
So cool!! Sign me Murphy up!
If you/your pug would like to participate, check out the 1000 Pugs tour schedule and register your pug for a photoshoot. The sitting fee is $50, and $10 of it will be donated to pug rescue. Winter and Spring dates are already booking up, and Fall dates (Boston!) will open on April 1, which, of course, is already on my calendar”¦ with a reminder.
After breakfast this morning, I headed out to NuVal. On my drive there, I swung by Bruegger’s to get my three free bagels. Yay! (Oh, it’s the little things in life.) I picked two Everything bagels (so Mal and I don’t fight) and one Sesame bagel.
At Bruegger’s, I also ordered a bagel sandwich to take with me to NuVal for lunch. On it was turkey, sundried tomato spread, green bell pepper, lettuce, and tomato.
I ordered my sandwich on a toasted Parmesan-Asiago bagel. I <3 cheese.
I finished off lunch with a cup of pumpkin spice coffee with cream and sugar from the office Keurig machine.
At home, I snacked on a Van’s Power Grains Waffle with Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter spread on top. I had a serious craving for a big cookie, but we didn’t have any in the house and I didn’t feel like baking, so I figured this was a good substitution. It actually tasted so delicious, I ate two of them.
Somehow, I forgot to blog about last night’s CrossFit workout in this morning’s post, so here’s a recap!
Skill: Rope Climbs & Knees to Elbows
5 rounds for time of:
4 Dead Lifts
8 Burpee Box Jumps
16 Knees to Elbow
24 Double Unders
Rope Climbs were fun (obviously), and I made some great progress on Knees to Elbows last night. During the WOD, I actually did a whole bunch of real ones. Ok, I didn’t touch my knees to my elbows every time, but I kipped and got my knees pretty close to my elbows, which is some serious progress and so much harder than the Knee Raises I’ve been doing for the past several weeks now. All of a sudden Knees to Elbows just clicked, and it was awesome.
Knees to Elbows? Say what? Here’s a video to show ya what they’re all about:
For the rest of the WOD, I managed Level 1 exercises: Deadlifts (95 pounds), Box Jumps (20″) and 2 x Single Unders for the Double Unders. Hey, I’ll take it. I’m just happy about my (nearly legit) Knees to Elbows!
Fun event tonight! Need to get ready.
Enjoy the evening, friends!
