Cats Rule & Dogs Drool {#SMS: Link-Up #5}

SMS #5.jpg

As some of you may know, I’m a die-hard dog person. (Sorry if I just lost all my crazy cat lady followers – you will be missed #probablynot). But honestly, cats have never really been my “thing” and while this post’s title may confuse the masses, it’s more in direct correlation to the wonderfulness that is today’s link-up: Sh*t Men Say with Voyage of the MeeMee and Duh Danae!

A classic story of Male Vs. Female, Homeward Bound was never truly about the Cat vs. Dog scenario (although I’m sure you thought so when you were 5). It’s underlying tones were much to that of the traditional punch lines associated with this link-up and can correlate directly in conjunction with men being stupid, stupid creatures. . . . no matter what species we’re referring to. Now trust me when I say that I know for a fact today’s post was supposed to include things that I say, not my husband. . . but if you’ve been keeping any kind of tabs on my blog then you’ll know these past few weeks have been a complete embarrassment. AKA – I’m lazy. While I did in fact have every intention of letting him air his dirty laundry, I just straight up forgot. In hopes to make up for my absent-minded actions to date, I’ll indulge you all with our One Year Anniversary recap (see at bottom) to bore the living hell out of you, and then hopefully you’ll forget all about my irresponsible behavior. . . . With that being said, here are a few of the hilarious yet brutally funny things that my husband has muttered in the past 4 weeks:

Ok, so cereal? It’s not even up for debate any more. . . .it just is. I used to think he was insane but I now too indulge in cereal at all times of day. My only concern is when he repeatedly forgoes dinner for a bowl of Corn Pops. #NotOk. #ISlavedOverAHotStove. #NoIDidntImLying. The Lucky Charms post made my life. I wasn’t home to witness her initial process but I’m pretty sure it went like it does for all of us. . . . it’s only a matter of seconds before any living, breathing human realizes that the mallows are clearly superior. #ConfidentShesTheNextSteveJobs. The Raptor throwing the first pitch? Absolutely amazing. A clear representation of why I love the internet. #AndMyHusband. The Wire? I don’t even know. For the past 2 weeks I’ve been getting a lot of backlash regarding my lack in effort to catch up on his new-found obsession. . . . He started the Netflix binge last weekend, I’ll forever be behind. Plus, does anyone even know if this show’s any good? I don’t want to waste my time. #ImImportant. The last guy. . . . well I don’t even know. Pj’s vine account is priceless and this random man getting so God damn passionate to the National Anthem just makes my day. It clearly made his too.

So in conclusion, men are still hilariously dumb and with that being established you can now head over to the link-up and get in on the action. This only happens once a month ladies, don’t be late! #ThatsWhatSheSaid. #GrossJoke #IHopeImNotLate.

Anyhow, on to the promised boredom that is our anniversary and maybe a little Mother’s Day recap too! Bus seriously, it was fantastic. While we didn’t do anything crazy expensive, or even all that extraordinary to celebrate our first year as a married couple, we did make the most of our time together. . . and that’s all that matters right?

So first, let me explain: Our anniversary was on the 11th, but so was Mother’s Day. Me, being the stingy bitch that I am proposed we celebrate our anniversary “one day early” in order to avoid any confusion in the gift giving process – I was to have two SEPARATE gifts – clearly stated in our invisible wedding anniversary may sometimes overlap with mother’s day agreement. Duh. You can’t combine mom and wife gifts. . . even though clearly my 2-year-old wasn’t shopping for my new Cricut alone. Regardless, it was just easier. Plus, we had like ten thousand other people to worry about on Mother’s day (our Moms of course, each apparently = the value of 5,000 humans – #ILoveToExaggerate) and I didn’t want to share a day about us with a day about them, or ME. Days about me are limited in number.

So back to the Anniversary: We exchanged gifts in bed. . . .nothing better than waking up to a sun-filled comforter covered in personal presents! As we are incredibly impatient in this house when it comes to gifting, we had to get this out-of-the-way immediately. It’s amazing we even made it to the day before. . .

I got: A Tiffany & Co. titanium ring to match the hubby’s wedding band. It was an extremely cute and creative idea on his part and I couldn’t have been happier. It’s so cute!

He got: An Armani Exchange Watch & A Boudoir Photo Shoot Book or “Little Black Book” as I would coin it. . . . I don’t want to give away all the surprises (it’s for his eyes only!) but below is just one of the many images taken last year on our wedding day!

Next, we got to golf! It was my first time out all season and with  my new Pink Cobra Driver no less! We just grabbed a quick 18 at our local least favorite course, but hey, it was open, affordable and easy access to the sitters. . . plus we got out on an amazing afternoon and it was a blast! He said we tied, I think I won. #NotEntirelySure.

Lastly, we hit up our local P.F. Changs and finally used a gift card given to us over 2 years ago at our Engagement Party. . . . we are total slackers. Seriously, I can’t believe it took us this long to have a date night but hey, sometimes it’s just not possible. We totally got down on the superb lettuce wraps, cali rolls and some Thai dishes for dinner. . . .desert was a honey inspired fruit smoothie. #ICouldDie. Afterwards we decided to see Neighbors. It was better than we had anticipated and the amount of times that Zac Efron went shirtless were both incredible and just outright absurd. Happy Pre-Mommy’s Day To Me! I wonder if Pj picked this movie on purpose . . . how thoughtful of him. #WifeLife. Regardless, it was the perfect film for two noob parents that like to party. . . . basically: best day ever, and we totally deserved an entire day to ourselves. It’s probably been an entire year since it’s happened!

So incredibly lucky to have this amazing man in my life. While I may spend a quick half-minute bashing his manliness every month, I do truly adore my amazing Pj. ♥

Finally was Mother’s Day: I won’t spend a ton of time on this as I’m sure any of you that have a mother (all of you) know how this works. I will say though that my daughter is the cutest thing on earth. . . .and incredibly talented at making breakfast in bed- and doing the dishes to boot! #Winning.

*Recap: Breakfast in bed, Paige doing the dishes (we made cupcakes together), a new Cricut, working from the patio, prepping flowers for our moms, nap time with ZaZa, visiting some of the grandmas, sidewalk chalk and fun family photos! #SoBlessed.

I hope you all enjoyed your wonderful weekend as well and please, get on over to the link-up and join in on the fun that these girls have created!! Also, if you have time, stop on by the Let’s Be Friends Blog Hop With The Dwelling Tree to meet some exciting and fun new people. . . I’ve been joining for the last month or so, it’s a great group of people!

. . .It Is The Follow Through That Makes The Difference.” – Author Unknown.

Love Golf Ball

Today is Sneak Peak day into my OBSESSION with the game of golf. What sparks this post you say? Oh I dunno. . . . how about the BEST birthday present a Wifey could ask for!! That’s right ladies. . . my husband knows me very well. While it’s currently snowing mind you- no seriously look at a radar for Detroit, I am still very much excited for the season to begin. With golf shows just around the corner and my office ramping up for the 2014 season, it’s no surprise that I’m already anticipating that first sweet, summer round! With all this being said. . . I present you the happiest birthday present I could have asked for- “The Pink Princess”.

Cobra Amp Cell Driver

Cobra Amp Cell Face

Cobra Amp Cell Head

Cobra Grips

Pink Princess – AKA The Cobra Amp Cell Driver with MyFly Technology. Adjustable trajectory and distance, this beautiful little monster can adjust your drive loft anywhere from 11.5-14.5 degrees with additional draw capabilities.  This driver also features SmartPad technology which delivers a square face at address regardless of loft setting and E9 technologies frees up additional weight for a 12% larger effective face, delivering faster ball speeds on mis-hits. Basically in English this thing is as powerful as it is SEXY. 

While I’m a little nervous to transition back to a Ladies Driver, I can’t help but be ecstatic over this colorful bundle of joy. While senior shafts (Golf Lingo Ladies – Lets Not Go Down That Road #GetYourHeadOutOfTheGutter) are typically my go to for the past 9 years, I have become especially fond of the colorful selections that PUMA Golf has put together in the last few seasons -Thanks Ricki Fowler, Your Colorful Attire Makes My Life. Of course colorful clubs shall never undermine your selection process, it’s only fair that I dabble in the market! I’ve hit the same TaylorMade R5 Driver since 2004 – That’s Right, When the Pistons won the Championship (That’s How I Paid For The Bad Boy) and it’s literally about time (more like 3 seasons ago) that I got a new driver. While my putter and irons are only a few season old, I’ve had a rather difficult time deciding on what to do about my #1. . . always teetering back and forth between Ladies and Men’s. Both have their upsides and downsides. Knowing I was bound to have a case of insta-gret immediately following the purchase, it was never made.

Ricki Fowler

Thank goodness PJ decided for me and got me something I truly adore. . . . sometimes the best gifts are the things you would never buy yourself! I am both confident and excited to get to the range and master the “Pink Princess”. It’s been a long while since I smashed a Chicky-Poo Wood but I can’t wait to get back at it. I literally have stared at this thing +5 minutes every day since it’s been gifted to me and my doubts of flex and loft have quickly been pushed aside by Pink-on-Pink-on-Pink. I even purchased some girly pink balls to match. . . . who knew?! (Typically you will NEVER see me buy girly balls, I find them annoying and feel that typically only the worst women golfers make such a purchase. . . . but this is a special occasion.) PLUS I’ll be confidently out-driving all the boys. . . . with a pink ball. #GeeImRealSorry #HowEmbarassingForYou. #SorryNotSorry.

Pink Callaway Balls

Are any of you golfers? Would you like to learn?

I would love to help give pointers and hope to someday have a Ladies Golf Blog for all those interested in learning the game, learning the lingo. . . . .or hell, just learning golf cart “drinking etiquette”- Something any and all women should learn. A total game changer! #PlusThatShitIsFun!

For the Love of Golf

Thanks again husband, it was a wonderful Birthday as always and I can’t wait for the snow to melt! 

Cheers!
