Oops.. almost forgot about these

Here are those photos I forgot to upload from Kar's graduation
Aunt Sheri
oh boy. Never a normal photo. 

yeah this one just makes me laugh. a lot. 
sheri. me. mom. megan. karlie. grandma. taylor. tammy. leah. britt


My dad and toast

Ok despite the fact that these photos are horrible and I look like I've gained about one hundred pounds in them I am sharing them with you all.

This is me and my dad
One day I was over at their house helping my mom with some stuff and I smelled the faint smell of my dad toasting something
I was intrigued
I walked into the kitchen to find that he was making four HUGE pieces of toasted bread with jam and peanut butter
I couldn't let him eat all that food by himself
I mean.. seriously... too much food for one human, right?
So I popped two chocolate pop tarts into the toaster (for dessert hahaha) and we had a feast.
I don't know why it seems so funny to me
but that story just makes me laugh.


Some kind of water aversion

I've never met a dog who hates water as much as mine does

She's rather be smelly and dirty, itchy and gross
than spend fifteen minutes getting a bath
See. She won't even look at you she's so angry.

Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos

I swiped this recipe off the web awhile back and tonight I finally made it. 
I'd say this might be the first time Anthony had nothing negative to say.

super good.

and Mariachi music. 
Sometimes things are just too funny around here.

Happy 25th Birthday to Nicole!

I think my husband is dancing with a chair
Dinner at Madfish
Miracle baby turned cowboy and Frank Sinatra

I think I am dancing with my pointer fingers.
Good night. For sure.

Clothing the walls around here

I finally got around to putting something up on our bedroom wall. I had purchased the RELAX sign from HomeGoods about two months ago. About a month later I was hours into an epic garage sailing experience (am I right, MIL?) when a nice old lady offered to sell me four cute prints made in Denmark. They were framed and matted (gold frames with coral colored matting)... let's just say it was not good. 

So I used some Joann coupons to get me some matching green matting to go with the summer sheets and sign I had bought and Michaels finished us off with cheap-o-rama frames (that is not a brand... I am just extremely fond of cheap buys) and.. may I add... Dollar Tree should be forced to carry at least one color 11 by 14 frame. People need frames for reasons outside of hanging high school diplomas! But anyway... 

The finished product.
I like it.
The hubs declines to comment.
but I didn't see him putting clothes on this wall, did you?

Moving on.. I had another naked wall so I did a little free printable action 
I saw a 4th of july printable on my MIL's Pinterest via
printed it at Costco and then used leftover spray paint from when we painted the shelf on the other wall of our bedroom to paint one of the aforementioned ugly gold frames blue
and ta-da.. it is 11 x 14 and I love it. 
Again... that other guy who lives in this house does not
Doesn't he realize he married a woman who is completely obsessed with America? 
If he had it his way we would not celebrate anything ever
because that's the "cool" thing to do...

moving on... 
I broke down and bought these red, white and blue mums at Michael's for $1.00. They're cute.
