Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to my husband. I love you! It’s been a great two years and a great 8ish before that!

 

All these years later and the little things still drive me crazy! (candy wrappers, stinky feet, hair in the sink, soda cans) But they are so worth all the great things you do. (love notes, vitamins, packing lunch, going to the store, waking me up)

I have said it before and I still feel it – we have a great thing! Sometimes we are off our game and things seem a little off but I always love you more than anything else! I love you and love everything you do for me!

I can’t wait for the rest of our life together my love!  Happy Anniversary!!

 

 

I sure do love that guy!! All his silly antics and his stinky ole socks included!

How many years have you been married? How’s married life?

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!

The Griswold Zoo saved the day!….again!

Hello! My new name is Red… as in Red Sox. It’s nice to meet you all!

Yes, that’s correct, we have a new family member. That would make animal number 10! Soooo have you figured out yet that we LOVE animals??

This particular animal was located in the wild. In our area this is unheard of. We do not have wild ferrets running around here. They are pets and you buy them or adopt them. This little girl was found by Matt while at work. She was running the town, running into the street and making a nuisance of herself.

If you do not know anything about ferrets then allow me to explain. Most ferrets (at least around here) originate at the pet store. They get them from a very large breeder – Marshalls. It is possible to obtain a ferret through a shelter or person but they are usually Marshall’s ferrets as well that someone didn’t want. It’s rare to see a non-Marshalls ferret. The ferrets come to the pet store spayed/neutered and sadly, tagged as well with a little ear tattoo. I know…it’s sad. People pay up to 120.00 dollars to adopt from the pet store so it was shocking to find this little girl running around in the wild.

Matt scooped her up right away with every intention of bringing her home to add to our brood. There was rumor of a second wild ferret but it was never located. Poor little Red was skinny and filthy. Once she was cleaned up, our brood of 3 took her right in as family. It was super cute.

Ferrets also mate with other ferrets. This match can be between any sex. They are all fixed so it’s more like a lifetime partner. You will usually read that you should have either 1 ferret or 3 or more, never just 2. If one of them dies then the odds of your second ferret dying are very high as they get depressed from the loss.

Anyway…our 3rd little ferret,  Sox, had no mate to speak of and he and Red joined up right off the bat and Sox has actually been much happier. We now have 2 sets of mated ferrets and 4 best friends.

I haven’t bonded in a special way with a ferret in a long time. We lost 3 ferrets all pretty close together about a year and a half ago. That left us with 2 and I wasn’t ready for more until Sox came along. Matt actually bonded more with Sox than I did. Little Red though, she changed my heart. I bonded with her right off and have since had some special moments with Sox as well.

I can officially say I have a special relationship with al 4 ferrets now and all 4 ferrets are happy and content. The Griswold Zoo saved the day once again!

Do you have ferrets? If so tell me about them! Any tips on ferrets or homes with many animals? I would love to hear about that too!

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!

Me, Us and Him

Some random funsies about Matt and I:

I LOVE pajamas. If I am at home, I am usually in my pajamas. If it was appropriate, I would wear them everywhere. I once used Halloween as an excuse to wear pajamas to work.

We are hardcore Red Sox fans.

Matt only removes his shoes at the edge of the bed at night. He wears them all day, everyday. He even wears them to the beach and in the water.

I prefer to bust a move on my elliptical, barefoot.

We only get to sleep in our bed together 4 nights a month.

Matt now has 13 Red Sox shirts/jerseys.

I am a cat person. Matt calls me crazy cat lady.

We are animal lovers.

Matt is a dog person. He only likes our cats, but loves all dogs.

I used to want to be an opera singer.

We both love Salvador Dali. He is our favorite artist.

Matt lived as a dog (by choice) for part of his childhood.

I love the Twilight saga. I got hooked and I love it.

We don’t have very many pictures of us as a couple.

Matt likes eating mustard sandwiches. (no meat or cheese)

I want a baby so very badly.

We both work full-time jobs, on different schedules.

Matt is a major goofball.
