tuesday tangents

+ I find it very odd that every time we walk outside, Taylor purposefully looks for the ice so that he can slide around.  I am the exact opposite: I look for the crunchy snow so that I won't slip.  This usually results in us getting farther and farther away from each other--before you know it, we are on opposite sides of the road. It wasn't until last night that I thought, "this is kinda weird. why are we always on opposite sides of the street?" I guess that's what you get when your husband is a little boy at heart.

+I really really really hate that my husband can pull off trendy glasses and I can't.  In fact, the other day, he bought a girl pair (you can't tell that they're actually for women).  How can he pull off women's glasses, and I can't!? It's really frustrating, I tell you.

+over the weekend, tay and I drove all over town looking for a specific board game that he wanted. we hit the jackpot in one particular board game store.  we didn't find the game--but we found something much better: a board game battle between some of the most unique people on the planet. taylor and i secretly reveled in every moment, while I snuck behind board games to take pictures. we would have stayed there forever if we could.

+Last night, we cooked bacon to have with our german pancakes (p.s. found the best recipe EVER for german pancakes. sooo tasty!).  taylor hates when he can still smell dinner after dinner (so whenever I cook onions or bacons, I can expect to hear about it all night).  Last night, I walked into the kitchen to find him boiling essential oils to get rid of the bacon smell! Hahah! I wish I had taken a picture--there were bowls all over the counters--each bowl was steaming with hot water and an essential oil.  Our house smells awesome (come smell it)--but really, how does this boy think of these things? He's such a crafty weirdo. ;)

+is it weird that I am really giddy to try this workout as soon as I get home? I'm counting down the hours!

+who watched the bachelor last night? am I becoming one of those bloggers who blogs about the bachelor every tuesday? no. I'm not that cool. BUT I do have a few things to say--things that may or may not get me shunned from the blogging world.
1. I used to be an avid bachelor-fan.  Then when I started college, I decided to cut back--ha-it was taking up too much time.  I learned that if I didn't watch the first episode, the addiction wasn't there.  BUT no matter what, I found myself always watching the last two episodes. I just couldn't help myself. ugh. ha anyways--somehow, I watched the first episode this year. dang it. I'm hooked.
2. I was texting my friend chelsey last night while watching the show (p.s. love my chelsey girl. move back to utah!). we were talking about how watching the bachelor makes us forget all of our morals--like we are always rooting for the girls to take the fantasy suite date, or say something bad about another girl, or start drama, or wear the cutest bikini, or kiss the man that got kissed ten other times that night. what does this show do to me!? oh abc, you know how to make good TV.
3.  okay fellow girls--don't hate me. but am I totally alone in saying that juan pablo kinda bugs me?
maybe I'm totally off--but he doesn't seem very genuine to me. I can't quite put my finger on it though. but it seems like the whole online world loves him--so I don't understand what I'm missing? he's not my favorite bachelor--but I'm hoping that he will change my mind as the season progresses.
and I really, really, really like andi. 
okay, this is the end of my bachelor plug.

+if you've stuck through this post this long, let's be best friends. 

+last but not least, I love my fitbit. i want to dedicate a whole post to why you should get one too. but for now, I'll leave you with this awkward picture that I quickly took before the bell rang to show off my new obsession and my very white hand.
(p.s. can you spot my husband?)

  1. Ha! Love this post! Your hubby sounds a lot like mine! And to be honest...I'm the biggest Bachelor fan ever and even live tweet every Monday night (I'm trying my hardest not to blog every Tues about it hahaha) but I agree! JuPa (Juan Pablo haha yes I did) is good to look at but he's not very .. smart?? I don't know something isn't there for sure! Glad I found your blog and I look forward to following along!!

    1. Jupa--love that name by the way! hahaha totally going to use it!
      I feel the same way--he doesn't seem very smart! just a total womanizer. I don't really get it..
      he's pretty, but I don't see much past that!
      so glad I found yours too! xoxo

  2. We were dinner twins last night...although my house still smells like bacon. Ugh. I think I'm going to whip out my essential oils!

  3. I loved this post! Hilarious. I don't think your alone in your thoughts of The Bachelor. Juan Pablo bugs me, I can't put my finger on it, but he's not my favorite. After last night's episode, I am convinced that he has no morals. Kissing a girl after he promised himself (and other girls) that he wouldn't kiss anyone? HA! I am laughing as I type this! Where's the respect? Anyway, there's my penny's worth of this lame show :)

  6. Totally agree with you about Juan Pablo! I've been thinking the same thing about how he doesn't seem very genuine, especially when the girls are pouring out their hearts to him! My husband even commented on it (poor guy has to watch with me every Monday) this week when he was talking to Kat I think. It just seems like he's more in for the fame/money side than to honestly find a wife. I'm Bachelor obsessed but Juan Pablo isn't really doing it for me!

  7. These German pancakes have me intrigued! I kinda have a thing for specialty pancakes so I may have to give them a try!

  8. My hubby and I are the exact same way! He loves to play/slide on the ice. I’m too clumsy and do not trust myself, so I take the safer route. Love the Bachelor. Who is your favorite?
