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!

Cheers,

Sh*t Men Say {Link Up #2} *

So it’s the Second Tuesday of the month and I can’t lie when I say that I’ve been anxiously awaiting this link up all week. Amanda over at Voyage Of The MeeMee & Danae over at Duh! Danae! have kicked off their 2nd ever “Sh*t Men Say” Link Up! It’s a fun filled Tuesday to say the least and it’s the most entertaining of ways to make fun of your man. . . or some man . . . any man really.

With out further ado I present you some of the most manly stupid things my husband has mentioned in his #Twitterverse since last month . . . .

Pj’s dream (along with 1/2 of his friends) is to one day be an Olympian. A Olympic Curler rather, but anyway you hash it, an Olympic Athlete. While I outwardly laugh (very loudly) at him and his friends for this ambitious and unrealistic goal, I  do however pride myself in having a man with such passion and perseverance. While none of them have yet to actually pick up a curling stick, it’s not entirely impossible they obtain this goal in the next 2 decades as some of the U.S. Curlers only started the sport in 2009. #5YearOlympicPlan #WhatTheHell?

This is the point in which men (from all walks of life) outwardly express their frustration with Olympic classification. It’s okay hunny, I don’t know what the difference is either.

I think (and hope) this was in reference to cooking his 5lb tube of over processed burger meat for his annual “Super Bowl Sloppy Joes”.  If only I had set up live wire during the annual 9 hours of “Man Time” AKA our Super Bowl Party, I could honestly write an entire blog on Sh*t Men Say daily. . . . for the next 3 Years. #YChromosomes.

I’m sure this was in reference to when PJ and his father attended the Red Wings game back in January. . . . while men try to sympathize with the other “poor saps” during such horrific events, it’s apparently forgotten that they too have their moments. It is however unfortunate that this female was found to be not “hot” . . . indeed Poor Sap. #PoorPoorSap

So there you have it- A few of my favorite monthly updates on the Man in my life and the Shit that he Says! If you’re looking for a fun little Tuesday tradition to get in on, I highly suggest popping over to these ladies Link Ups and partaking on the fun! It’s always fun to poke a little fun!

So stop what you’re doing (or not doing) and link your shit up, it’s bound to make your afternoon a little lighter with a lot of laughter! #TrustMe. If not, good luck to you on all your mid-week endeavors (I hope you fall off a cliff). #YepIJustSaidThat.  Happy Tuesday!

Cheers!
