Inappropriate or Awesome

I’ve decided to start a new post, called Inappropriate or Awesome.  I think it’s pretty self-explanatory, but in case you don’t understand….I decided to take photos of things that are either inappropriate or awesome and then blog about it.  Now, these things can pertain to {d&k} or they can just be random.  I’m pretty sure they will most likely all pertain to {d&k}, hehe.

And, here we go…


It’s inappropriate to send your 10 & 12-year-old nephews their birthday presents in these boxes:

(Don’t worry, I felt too guilty and switched them to non-alcoholic boxes.  Who does this?!  What kind of aunt am I?!?)


It’s awesome when you get up in the morning to find this:

(Best husband evah!)

It’s inappropriate to dress your oldest, grumpiest dog up for Cinco de Mayo and let your party guests take photos of him…

(But look at that cute little face!  This one might be a little awesome too!)


It’s inappropriate to make fun of dw for texting mistakes, when his fingers are clearly too big for his iPhone keyboard…

(Haha, I crack myself up.  dw didn’t even think it was funny.  This one can be categorized under awesome too!)


It’s inappropriate to make your husband get a picture like this in the middle of the Farmer’s Market:

(Look how sad he is.  Thanks for being a good sport, k.  And you’re welcome that I’m an awesome wife!)


It’s awesome to find a statue that looks exactly like your dog!  It’s not awesome to charge $80 for it!

(What the pluck, HomeGoods, what the pluck?!)


Well, there you have it.  The first installment of Inappropriate or Awesome was a success.  Even though the majority of pictures were inappropriate.  Eh, it is what it is.  Stayed tuned for the next Inappropriate or Awesome!


Enjoy your day & do something inappropriate AND awesome today!



Wednesday Randomness

So, the last few days have been filled with boxes.  Lots and lots of boxes.  I have nightmares that I’m living in a cardboard box, sleeping on a cardboard bed (that is some how supporting {d&k} and the zoo without collapsing yet when I tripped over a box and fell onto it, it did no such thing!).  I wake up in a cold sweat and then I panic that the box bed will get soggy.  Maybe I shouldn’t eat before I go to bed?!  Anyways, the last few days have been a crazy mess of unpacking of said boxes and trying to find a place for everything.  Good news though….the house is completely unpacked and all the boxes are gone!  Wahoo!  I have realized that this house does not have nearly enough storage and I have jammed things into every nook and cranny I could find.  We went from having a basement, garage, attic, and an entire wall of book shelves to none of the above!  But, that’s ok because everything is unpacked!  And, this also means that k cannot be his usual pack-ratty self!  Can I get another Wahoo! for that!?!?

In not so good news…it is cold here!  That’s right, it’s cold in TEXAS!  Wth?  I didn’t sign up for cold weather in Texas.  Now, it’s definitely not as cold as Ohio, but you know me, anything below 80* is cold.  But, it has been very cold here and I can’t seem to stay warm.  The pugs and I were cuddled under a blanket with a small heater on us today!  Now, that’s just sad.  I know.  As soon as I typed it I thought “wow, she is a baby.”  But, like I said, I can’t help that its hard for me to stay warm.  Oh, and remember how I was having an “ooh shiny” moment?  Well, it has been so cold that the towels I put in there to soak up the water were frozen today!  Eep. So, my car is still a swimming pool.  I did park it in the sun today and left all the doors open, which helped to dry up some of the water.  I’m hoping to do the same thing tomorrow, if there is sun (which there better be, Texas. Do you hear me?).

Today I reopened my Etsy shop, just in time for the holidays!  I also added a few Ready to Ship items that will definitely make it in time for Christmas.  Pass the word along, if you know of anyone looking for a great Christmas gift 😉  Here are a few of the Ready to Ship items:

Ready to Ship Slouchy Beret Hat in Charcoal

Ready to Ship Ear Warmer in Marigold

Ready to Ship Ear Warmer in Navy



















In other random news…
Can I just tell you how many people told me that they love Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes too and after reading my post about them almost went out to the store to buy them?!  Haha.  I love it.  Mainly because I’m not alone in my strange, border-line-obsessive love tryst with Little Debbie and her deliciousness of goodies.  We should start a fan club.  But, we can’t eat the goodies, only talk about them.  I’m not condoning obesity and that’s what I would be if I could get my sausage-linky little fingers on a few thousand boxes of those wonderful {drool} goodies.  Ok, done now.  Do not let me near a Target. Do.not.  Ever.

And now, what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t leave you with some of {d&k}s random conversations?!  A bad one, that’s what. And, I don’t want to be a bad friend, so here you go…

{d} – Your sideburns are very poufy.

{k} – I know! They are out of control!  Stay down.  Yes, I talk to them sometimes.  Stay down, little buddy.  Calm down.  Lay flat.


{k} – I DON’T NEED TO WEAR PANTS TONIGHT!!!!!!  I can just pull up my socks!
(picture k standing in the middle of the bedroom with a hooded sweat shirt on, undies, and socks pulled up past his knees.  There is about 3 inches of leg showing, the rest covered by either undies or socks.  Hot.  Friends, don’t be jealous of me because I married that.)


Any time k does something goofy, stupid, weird, etc… the first words out of his mouth are, “Crap, you are gonna blog about that, aren’t you?!”  Haha, why yes, yes I am.

Thanks for being so entertaining k!

Until next time, enjoy your day!
