A bit of @PetKelp in your life!

I recently started Jacob on Pet Kelp. It is about $10.00 per 8oz pouch. It comes in a powder form and you can mix it with pet food, water or stew. It is made out of Organic flax flour rich in Omega-3s and Omega-6s is added to our exculsive seaweed-based vitamin and mineral complex.

This is what it looks like and Jacob really likes it!  Especially when I mix it with yogurt. Jacob, like most white dogs are picky eaters and have sensitive stomachs. So getting them on a supplement is especially important now that he is getting older. Jacob will be 7 years old this summer!

If you are looking for a supplement for your pet, try PetKelp!

@GossipGirl Recap: Blair’s Royal Wedding

OMG can you believe we’ve hit 100 episodes of Gossip Girl? And what better way to start it than with a musical featuring Blake Lively singing to ‘Diamonds are a Girl’s best friend.’ Who would have thought diamonds were a metaphor for Dan? ” At least we know Dan Humphrey’s (Penn Bagdley) over trying to get Blair. As adorable as it was, it was obviously never going to happen.

What about saving Chuck and Blair? Chuck (Ed Westwick) isn’t such great friends with the evil priest and poisons him in his effort to save Blair’s wedding. But it looks like Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) is saving the day. Nate (Chase Crawford) finally realizes how crappy his choice in women has been after a tiny feud over a catering girl he couldn’t remember.

I’m not exactly feeling Blair’s Vera Wang dress, especially since it’s so tight it’s cutting off her circulation. Serena’s pale pink dress looks like the way better option. If only all Maid of Honors were allowed to look that great. Blair’s mom ends up at Chuck’s place, obviously calling for an intervention. Everyone else sees how wrong this wedding is — “I don’t want my daughter to have to wait for a second chance to be happy. She should be happy the first time around.” You can’t say no to a mother now, can you?

Even after Chuck confronts Blair and tells her to come away with him (again), she’s still stuck on staying apart. Georgina teases this idea by recording this whole conversation where Blair confesses her true feelings and Chuck debates the idea of telling Louis. Even Serena joins the ‘all for Chuck’ team, but Blair decides to hold on to both of her fathers and continue down the aisle.

Who knew Gossip Girl would be the one to break up this picture-perfect moment? After hearing her own words, Blair jumps out of the altar. “Of course I love you, Chuck. I love you more and more every day if it’s even possible to love someone that much.” Georgina successfully calls out all the little issues suspecting Serena, Nate and Dan for sending in the video, all for Blair and Louis to resume their wedding. Will there be another interruption or are we finally sealing the deal?

Apparently Chuck’s made some sort of statement to the rest of the gang. Nate goes for the catering girl and Serena professes her love for Dan (apparently, there was never any competition, she was just being a bitch, as usual). Does anyone care about Louis’ grand gesture? After everything they’ve been together, it looks like she’s married herself into a monster.
