Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

What's that? You guys didn't think I would get a Pictures & Distractions post out this week? You thought I was too busy and drowning in my own stress tears?

Well, so did I. But then I decided to prove to myself that I CAN have it all.

So, now, your Pictures & Distractions:

Found this piece last month in an antique store in Vancouver Washington.

The Grapes of Wrath

Mr. Pants and Mr. Doodle, not too thrilled that Matt Pants is working instead of playing with them. 

Duncan has decided that my big brick planter box is now his toilet. So that's fun. 

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

Last week people got mad at me for making fun of The Bachelor. But Meg had me back anyway.

The rich friend who travels all the time. Thanks, Skylar.

Photoshopping climbers out of rock climbing photos. Thanks, The SuzzzzzzZzzzz.

Because my birthday is coming up. Thanks, Alesha.

Laura Dern has a dog doppelganger.

  1. Mr. Pants and Mr. Doodle need a dog calendar. Stat.

  2. You know, Mr. Doodle using the planter box is actually the best possible thing besides him just learning to use the human toilet inside.

  3. The apothecary drawers are to die for. So jealous!

  4. My six year old was looking at my phone with me while I was looking through the pictures from this post and when I got to the one of the furniture piece he pointed to the drawer coming open on the bottom and said in a creepy voice, “someone’s in there.” He didn’t really elaborate. Could you have gotten it from a haunted store??

    1. Kids being creepy is the creepiest thing there is.

  5. Also, is the grapes of wrath picture taken in the Napa valley?

  6. My wife has been using the chicken purse for five years. It is amazing! If I weren’t so tied to gender stereotypes, I would use it meself.
