Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

Matt brought two birthday presents to my house yesterday and said one was from him and one was from Mr. Pants. He assured me that Mr. Pants thought for a really long time before picking out the gift.

What was it? I'll tell you. Peanut butter. Mr. Pants got me peanut butter for MY birthday. Because that dog is selfish and only buys gifts for his friends that he wants for himself.

But I love him so much.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:
Mr. Pants was sound asleep on my lap. And then I whispered "peanut butter."

Law school reunion in my back yard! I forgot to bring a baby. 

Roses from my yard.

We discovered this brick wall in Matt's kitchen during demo.

~It Just Gets Stranger


  1. Where does one get a June Snapple shirt?

    1. The shirts were prizes for the first 100(?) strangers who signed up for Imzy. I didn't sign up fast enough to get one because WORK

  2. Those face swaps! My family and I could not handle them. And then my kids were sorely disappointed when they couldn't get it to swap their stuffed animals' faces. Hilarious.

  3. OMG! Just look at that beautiful lathe and plaster!

  4. I love the vase your roses are in!

    Did Mr. Scraps get you a birthday present?

  5. I hope my babies turn out half as cute as that baby in the carrier with the binky. I cute.

  6. Some of us weren't cool enough to sign up for Only in the June Snapple window, so I definitely think you should sell them. I'll eat Ramen and buy your stuff, I don't care. Just let me advocate for June Snapple.

  7. Do not remove that brick - Fortunato! Still gives me the creeps! "Rest in Peace" indeed.

  8. I hope you and Matt are retrofitting your houses if needed to make them earthquake safe.

  9. ACKK!!!! DO NOT watch that "cute" dog video if you hate spiders! A SPIDER flies off the carrier at :28 seconds and the lint on the floor becomes TWO SPIDERS! Maybe I just saw that wrong but I don't think so!
