I love Alpacas! (& Basil)

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

So I have a secret confession to make today. I absolutely love alpacas! I love how they are awkward, but yet also somewhat cuddly and cute looking. I might also have dreams of someday owning a small farm where we can have a few. It will be like a Martha Stewart type farm, all pretty and perfect, and no smells or cow manure to step on. It’s my dream right, so it can be that way!

I have never been to an alpaca farm before, but I have looked them up online to see if there are any nearby that I can visit. There are a few in Ohio, so I am hoping maybe we can check that off of my bucket list sometime this summer.

Thankfully Rick is just as crazy as I am, and he helps fuel my obsession of alpacas. For Valentine’s Day he got me an alpaca planter from Anthropology. I think the sales girls thought he was nuts when he said he was getting this for his girlfriend for Valentine’s Day. Little did they know, I actually loved it!

I named her Georgie, and planted some basil in her. I told Rick that alpacas like basil, so it was only necessary to give them what they want. He was like “is that right?”

Rick’s family is thinking of getting a few alpacas someday. Rick’s dad said this is in thanks to me. If they do, I might secretly pretend its mind and give it a name. Rick said they might let me name it anyway…ha! Then I will secretly hope that these alpacas have lots of babies so I can really have one of my own someday when we own a house with some land.

For now I will continue to enjoy my little alpaca planter, with the cute little cotton tail, who provides me with lots of fresh basil. I also really love basil, so it’s a perfect match. Me and my little Georgie.

Do you love alpacas?
