Inspiration is All Around Us

Inspiration is all around's as simple as that. A few months ago while popping in next door to the Miami Art Museum (MAM), I saw this bright green T-Rex and I fell for him. I put off buying him for months...and every time I went over to MAM for a meeting or something I would always check and make sure he was still there. I told my friends at MAM that I was coveting the T-Rex...they smiled and always said, "You should buy him with your discount"...and I would nod and agree.
Last week, I finally decided I was going to do it. It was a particularly stressful week, and I told myself I deserved my desk protector. When I went over to MAM to buy him, there was a mom eyeing him...asking the store attendant how much he cost...all the while I was praying she wouldn't take him away from me, as I KNEW he was the last one.
Fortunately for me, the $30 price tag was not what she had in mind...and as quickly as a bunny can make bunny babies he was mine!
Now the question lies...what do I name him?


  1. Cute! How about Trex....pronounced like "decks"?
    Hope you have a good week! xo

  2. I'm partial to Rex...and he's adorbs!

  3. I like Rex, too. It's like he's the king lording over your desk. I don't know why, but I also think that Tyrone would be a fabulous, hilarious name for this guy!

  4. How about Tyrone Rex the King of Educadora?!

  5. I love his name!! It's perfect!!! And, I'm selfishly very happy to have had a hand in his name.
