Random January Nonsense

Here’s some random goodness on this wonderful day!

I’m not ‘allowed’ to remove Christmas decorations until after my husbands birthday every year. It’s Christmas until at least Jan 8. This year, it was Christmas until Jan. 13th.

I have a nail polish addiction. I recently had to purchase a new storage place for my nail polish.

My sister-in-law is about to pop. She’s growing a human and that human is READY!

Baby tummy

I have read Fifty Shades of Grey – Twice! And… I am not ashamed. I like the story.

I have this ‘feel like a teenager’ crush on Ian Somerhalder. I wish I could meet him. He seems so extremely down to earth. Every time I try to meet him, it never works out. Wait…do I sound like a stalker??

I’m at work right now. I actually typed this particular line on Notepad so I wouldn’t forget it. : )

Emerald Simply natural Almonds are DELICIOUS!

I have a teenager at home and we watch a lot of teenage shows together. I love it!

I just ordered my self a new purse/bag. It’s a Dooney. My first. I don’t usually buy myself expensive brand name stuff….  ; ) hehehe

New Bag

I need to go to Target today (this line was written on Monday) for things like Shampoo, Conditioner, razors.. you know… hygiene necessities.

I made it to Target yesterday and got my “stuff”.

Today is Tuesday.

The teenager used to be a cute pudgy little thing who wanted me to scratch her back every night before she went to sleep.

Cutie

I love my family and never ever get to see them enough!

My husband got me this awesome FM transmitter thingy that plugs into the lighter outlet. I can plug my Ipod into it (most 2004’s don’t have an Ipod connection!) . I love it so much. I got to listen to all the best stuff on my way to work today.

That’s it for January I guess. Unless I get another random mood.

Where’s Waldo??

Or better yet…..Where’s Moo? Take a look at the picture and see if you can find her?

Did you find her?? That’s not a life-like ornament folks, that’s Moo the pain-in-my-booty kitten. You know it’s the holiday season when your cat is in a tree……in the house!! I have no idea how we will keep any ornaments on our tree this year. It’s going to be quite the Griswold Christmas adventure around here, I can see it now.

 

The many faces of my Husband

Halloween may be over to everyone else…..But not in this house! The following pictures were all taken in the month of November. Costume Fun is year round in this house! Enjoy!

Our Graveyard Date

It has been a looong time since Matt and I had a “date”. We haven’t been out just the 2 of us in quite some time.

This weekend with the teenager at a friends…we decided to head to St. Augustine. St, Augustine was founded in 1565 and is it is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city and port in the continental United States. There are many old and original buildings in the city. For example, it houses the oldest wooden school-house. There are tons of ghost stories that surround the buildings and cemeteries.

You can take multiple different ghost walks and tours around the city and learn where all the different sites are. It’s really cool! We have taken about 5 different walks over time and this time we decided to just walk around on our own and take pictures around town.

This post is just for fun. Look close at all our pictures and let me know of you see anything interesting or creepy!

When was your last date? Where did you go? See anything interesting in our pictures? Have you ever been to St. Augustine or any haunted cities?

Filter or no filter

I met Matt in 2003. At the time, the teenager was a cute chubby little 6yr old ball of fun. Like most children, she had no filter on her conversations. I sure did love that kid though and was quickly falling for her daddy too.

She's actually 9 in this picture..I didn't have a digital camera yet when I met her at 6yr old!

One particular day as we were all sitting around the house, that cute little squishy face asked me “When are you and my daddy gonna get married? “Was this adorable? Yes! Was it awkward as I sat there wide eyed, mouth agape trying to come up with an appropiate answer for a 7yr old? YES!!! I had only known Matt for a mere 4-5 months and I think marriage was the last thing on my mind. (His too considering we didn’t wed for 7 more years!)
I think Matt was appalled that she would even ask this question and for sure thought he would never see me again, what with my running for the hills and all. LOL!
I love kids though and have been around them my entire life and I know their minds and was in no way offended. It was awkward though! 
 
Another wonderful time with little squishy face, involved her bringing up the dreaded “ex”. Oh yes my friends, this little ball of joy brought up the ex in such a manner that it was awkward for all involved. She simply wanted to know if her daddy remembered the time they did this with “her” and it caused complete silence to ensue. I’m no silly jealous girl though and wasn’t bothered by it all. I wasn’t silly enough to think Matt had no ex’s and that this little cutie had never had another woman in her life. 
 

Me and the Teen years ago. (She made us get matching shirts!)

 
What is it about kids that cause them to say the worst things at the worst moment? We think they have no idea, but is this actually true. It seems more like they DO know exactly what they are doing and just like to see adults squirm!
All these years later that little squishy kid has grown into a beautiful teenager and guess what?? Still no filter! I cringe sometimes when we are conversing with strangers.
 
I sure do love her though with all my heart and soul, filter or no filter.
 
So tell me, do you kids have a filter? If so, how did you install it? If not, tell me about an awkward moment in time.

Trips to Walmart

If you have been reading my blog for any certain amount of time, you should know by now that I blog about anything and everything and sometimes even nothing. Today’s post is just for fun!

I was looking through some old pictures for a project I am doing and I noticed multiple trips to walmart and even one to Ikea where we had maybe a little too much fun while there. Let the pictures speak for themselves…..

This last one was a fun trip to Ikea. Roomie is a major goof!

So honestly, how would you react to seeing any of these things take place? I would be thinking – peopleofwalmart.com but alas, these are MY people of Walmart so I didn’t send the photos. That’s cheating! We do have fun though!

Yes, today is a mindless silly post, but, it’s Tuesday and sometimes Tuesday can be more of a drag than Monday! Oh, and I’m tired. It’s hard to not be silly when you’re tired!

Keep reading and maybe next time I will be witty! I have something in mind! Like this post and make sure to follow us – we LOVE followers!

Texts from a drunken night

I was in Niagra Falls recently and it just so happened that my entire family (From my dad’s side) was going to be there. All of us together. This would be the first time in about 15 years. So yes, we had some fun.

The only members of my family missing happened to be my husband and the teenager who both stayed behind. Our 10 animals needed a babysitter and the teenager had school.

The point of this post is the fun of drunken texts. I had a little too much fun on our last night there while Matt was home having a little too much fun of his own. The two of us mostly communicated through texts and I want to share them with all of you.

Me: There are weirdos here!

Matt: I love you and I can’t feel my toes

Me: I live you top, Th toes/ my face!

Matt: Huh?

Later……

Me: Is everyone sloping ghetto

Me: In f**ked too. Since king 4birds age

Me: My phone is suing?

Me: fuing

Me: dieing

Matt: 4birds age?? double you tee eff

Later….

Me: I can home Fri cornfield. In from. I ythinkb it passes out not

Me: I lib you too

Me: Please remember to take cat of aminals

Matt: What’s up with a cornfiwld?

Later…..

Me: I Dublin! I’m have to Gordon. Sleep. I’ve been up since ten and drink sombre 4. Bed fog me. I love job and hold job Gabriel s good hint. PleDged be good any art you red lly film! I miss oh. A bunches.

So there is some of what was said between the two of us on this wonderous night! Drunk texting and auto correct do not mix. I wonder what it would have looked like without Autocorrect!

Do you have any great drunken texts? Send them our way! I’d love to compare. Plus…they make me laugh!

It’s National F**K with Roomie Day

August 2nd has officially become our own personal holiday. We declared August 2nd to be National F**k with Roomie day.
The day started out with a demon baby hanging from the ceiling outside his bedroom door. This little cutie was there to greet him and wish him a good morning before he left for work. This beautiful baby was suspended from the ceiling to greet Roomie right at face level.

I will eat you!

For some reason Matt’s brother and another friend also decided to celebrate National F**K with roomie day. This was not actually discussed between any of us. Everyone had their own plot and agenda for the day.
The boys came over in the afternoon while roomie was away at work with multiple rolls of tin foil. Their evil deed involved covering roomie’s entire new truck in tin foil. They covered every single piece of the inside and outside of his truck! Roomie has not even been able to register the truck yet! It was so neat looking that the neighbors also stopped by to take pictures.

Now, any normal person might stop right there and think well a good morning scare and a tin foil truck is probably good enough. Any normal person would stop right there, kick up their feet to a job well done and wait for the victim to see their hard work. You however, step into the Griswold realm of reality and we do not “stop right there at a job well done”, oh no my friends!

We proceeded to spend at least the next hour filling balloon after bloody balloon (roughly 800!) with the precious air from our lungs to fill as much of roomie’s bedroom as we could. It was a team effort and was hard work. The teenager threw in her 2 cents as well with streamers o fun!
The finished product was just glorious!

To top it off, roomie had to potty in more ways than one and came home to find the fruits of our labor had completely blocked his bathroom door. He literally disappeared into a sea of balloons before emerging again unsuccessful in his mission.
Roomie will be popping balloons and unwrapping his tin foil truck for days or maybe even weeks. I expected to hear giggles every time we hear a balloon pop and maybe even when we hear the tin foil song of our leftovers.

I look forward to National F**k with roomie day of 2012. Time to start plotting now for bigger and better things!

However we must keep in mind that F**k with Krystal, Matt, Teenager and all other friends & family day has in the past and may again arise at any point without warning. Ahh Griswold life is entertaining !

He looks much happier than he actually was!

The 3am drunken visitor

Matt and I don’t get to spend a lot of time together with our current work schedules. When we do have nights together we usually stay up late and relax and talk on the front porch. The weekends we spend together, we stay up even later. So this explains why we are up at 3am on Saturday night and we also happen to be on the front porch together.

This Saturday at about 3am a strange car pulled into our driveway. Matt and Roomie walked out to the driveway to investigate. A female stumbled up to them and began a random conversation stating she was looking for her friend at a party. She also made sure to tell them that she was drunk and f**ked up. She had her friend/neighbor in the car as well.

Matt being a police officer saw this as suspicious & possibly even a diversion on the females part. Matt tried to be nice to get rid of her but then had to get a bit mean while Roomie had his back. The girl stumbled back into the car & the male driver then threw unknown items out of the car and onto our driveway. Matt being at least twice this little guys size then approached the car and explained in a VERY polite and courteous manner (wink wink) that the male should exit his car and retrieve the items he had “lost”. The male gracefully complied. (Must have been because of how nicely Matt asked). The male then got back into his car and drove away exclaiming out the window that he should kick Matt’s “ass”. This guy had every opportunity to make that attempt but I guess didn’t think of it until he was safe and driving away.

The moral of this story is that Matt is a complete “Sh!t Magnet” It doesn’t matter if he’s at work or at home…it has a strange, ironic way of coming to him.

A Mystery Comedy Dinner Show

So, the teenager turned 15 this past week. It’s a pretty big milestone. Where we live, at 15, you can get a learner’s permit, you’re usually a sophomore in High School, and you’re half way to 30! So it’s a pretty big day!
We asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday and she decided that she wanted to go with 2 of her friends to a dinner theater.
We have a few good ones near us and they are all a lot of fun. We decided to go to Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Show, which is also a comedy.

All 5 of us loaded up for a night of fun and food. It really was a lot of fun. You have a little food, watch some of the show, eat some more while discussing with your table who the murderer might be, then you watch a little more, ask some questions of the actors and then you get to eat dessert while the show concludes. It’s really very organized and a lot of fun!

We called ahead of time and told them that our teenager was coming for her birthday and do they do anything special. We ordered a cake and they told us they sing to all birthdays, give a little gift and of course the cake we ordered too.

The girls had a great time and so did the parents! We all loved it. The actors and the show was hilarious, the food was pretty good too and the staff was really excellent.

If you have or will become a tourist in the Orlando area then you should set a night to go to the Sleuth’s dinner theater. I promise you will love it!

It was a fun night and nothing Griswoldesk happened to any of us.

Happy Birthday to the Teenager!

What did you do for your last birthday? Or your child’s last party?
