Wordy Wednesday ~ ¡Ándale! ¡Ándale! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba!

This post is actually dedicated to my friend, Elianne. Elianne is a great lady and we share a love of tiaras. Last year, I met her at the BlogHer Conference and we had matching tiaras because that's how we roll.

We are going to be at the BlogHer Conference again this year. So we were talking about taking our matching tiaras. I couldn't remember where mine was and then it hit me. My tiara now lives on my Giant Speedy Gonzales plush toy. I think Elianne was a little surprised that I had a Speedy Gonzales stuffed toy.

Why wouldn't I though? Yes, Speedy is a Gonzales with an s and I am a Z Gonzalez but we are still Gonzales/z'. Plus, one of my nicknames is actually Speedy although I am anything but that. I think I am more like Pedro, his co-hort.

But I have to be honest, I have a lot of stuffed toys. I love them. I actually got Speedy years ago at Universal Studios Orlando. I asked Tom to win me one but he couldn't. So I had to take matters into my own hands because I was not leaving Orlando without my Speedy doll. I didn't. I actually won him for about $10. That's a great deal and I love him to pieces.

Well, turns out that Speedy loves wearing tiaras. That is why he is wearing my tiara. So this post is for Elianne. I will rip that tiara from his head and pack it away for next week because if I see Elianne, we so have to rock those tiaras again.

    I once had a 4 foot tall Kermit the Frog. Sadly he did not love tiaras.
