Bowling, Dog Park & Pizza


After breakfast on Friday morning, we headed to the bowling alley. It was a rainy day and bowling sounded like fun!


My mom was on a roll. She had more than five strikes in her first game! Are you kidding me? I think I had like one strike the entire three games. Apparently I didn’t put enough positive energy into my game. (my brain is corrupted from the book I just read)

I figured I’d have more luck scratching lottery tickets than bowling…and that was also a bust! I love visiting my parents. They make me so happy and I feel so much better after a dose of them. I can’t wait until they sell the house and move down south!


After the bowling alley, we all took Grumples to the dog park. I knew it was going to be wet and mushy but he needed to get some energy out.


He ran around for about an hour!


I’m glad he found another dog to chase. I spent about thirty minutes running the field and doing leg workouts on the obstacles.


He kind of looks like Falcor from the Never Ending Story!


After the dog park, we went to Family Video and rented some scary movies and also ordered a pizza. I made a large salad to go with my piece. After a long day of fun and activities, I passed out!

    Please don’t respond to “Karl”, “Jeremy”, whoever. Ignore them. You give them power when you respond cuz that is what they want. Ignore them & they will go away. I love your blog!

    Disordered as hell. You had to justify eating a single slice of pizza by eating a large salad. A life of salads must just be so enjoyable…get help!

      Hey Karl, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Someone who is disordered would either 1. not eat any pizza at all, ever or 2. eat way more than one piece and purge. By eating one piece and pairing it with a salad, Taralynn is letting herself eat what she craves, but at the same time she is respecting her body by balancing it out with a healthy salad.

      As if going around leaving nasty comments to make someone feel bad isn’t bad enough as it is… at least know what the hell you’re talking about before you try to pass judgement.

      Taralynn is amazing, and the fact that she can stop after one big slice and add a salad is motivating and inspiring. It’s NOT disordered, and I wish that the negative comments we’ve been seeing lately would stop. Thanks.

      Karl, in my opinion, you really need help, if only things that you write bad things for good people make your life better. All this negative what you want give to Taralynn, you give only yourself. She is beautiful, talented, interesting and awesome girl, who want make this world better and who help for people for free. And if you can not tell any more.. i think that you must apologize and go out.

      lol funny you changed your name to Karl. Your name was “jeremy” the other day. And I think eating one piece of pizza with a large salad is the healthier way out. Stop commenting on every single blog post if it’s going to be negative. I’m not the one that needs help…you are. You just created a fake email to comment on a blog. WOW.

    My husband wanted to name our dog Falcor soooooo badly! His face is totally luck dragon-esque, especially when he’s sleepy, but he’s the wrong color!
