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.

Let’s vote in a new Sad Clown

Clowns. A lot of people have a fear of clowns. I’m not afraid of them but I typically find them annoying and a little creepy as well.
There is a sad clown that’s quite a famous clown and you see pictures of him everywhere:

Do you recognize him? He’s like the billboard for a sad clown.

I think we should change the billboard sad clown to a new representative of sad clowns. I saw the clown that’s perfect for the job the other day. I like this sad clown way better:

What do you think? We could start a world-wide petition!

The many faces of my Husband

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!

A small Griswold incident brought so many smiles

We were sitting on our front porch last night chatting and catching up with each other as we often do. Matt had a nice full cup of Pepsi from the gas station sitting on the table next to him.

I true Griswold fashion, as he went to sit, somehow at the perfect moment, his arm hit the cup and sent it falling downward. It slipped in between his bottom and the chair at precisely the right moment. It was too late to stop and his booty crushed the cup as it crashed down upon its delicate styrofoam body.

The result was a wet, sticky mess. Oh and also, Matt’s cute little bottom was soaked through with cold Pepsi.

So what lesson did we learn? Oh that’s right…that even in the simplest of times, we are Griswold’s and the laws of Griswold nature are that something will get you and you can never hide from the Griswold factor!

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.

Happy Birthday Crash…Here’s your Gift

Our puppy turned one this month. He was born one year ago, and honestly, the toddler in him has been beginning to show. We discussed the fact that it was time for Crash to lose some of his man parts. It’s quite a brutal tradition, I know, but it’s usually necessary in domesticated animals. They become wild beasts and if he were to slip past someone and get out! Oh my! No more puppies please!

So alas, the appointment needed to be made and I was in charge of this task. I was speaking with the vet’s office and making the appointment. The available date was July 13th. It didn’t hit me until she asked me for Crash’s birth-date. “Ohhh shoot! His birthday is actually the 13th” I tell her. After a short giggle and joke from each of us, I kept the 13th appointment, I mean, he has no idea it’s his birthday….right?

Now, if anyone else has ever had an animal “fixed” and had to deal with the dreaded cone, then you understand before even reading this why it’s the “dreaded cone”.

My poor guy, they brought him out to me all drugged and weighted down with this cone around his head. I could hear them coming down the hall. My pup with his head dragging and the cone scraping the ground and the vet coaxing him to raise his head. It was quite comical to hear. My pup was all stressed out and he has a puddle of drool and hair inside his nasty little cone. It was a LONG trip home.

Once home, he continued to drag his little head and crash into things. Once he would crash into something, he just froze there and waited for assistance. It was pathetic actually and sad that it was his birthday, however, it’s one we will always remember.

It was the next day when we finally had a little birthday celebration. (which yes, I know is way more for us than for him!)

It turned out to be a happy little birthday after all, and I don’t think he even remembers that on his actual birthday he gave away his boys.

Anyone else have funny birthday stories? What about funny stories about the “dreaded cone”?

Tell us about them, if you feel pity for our pup then share this story and follow us too!

A reader commented that it would be funny to visualize my hubby with the “cone” around his neck. I agreed 100%!
