Green Thumb {Not}

This...is what happens when my mom tries to plant a garden.

She mutates the strawberries.

The end.

Movie Junkie

Anyone who knows me knows I rarely go to the movies.
They know this because I never know what movies certain quotes come from and what not.
In the past two weeks, I have seen three movies!!
In a movie theater!!
I think that's some kind of record.
Last night, Michael Rudd and I went and saw When In Rome.
I have been dying to see this since I saw the previews for it when we went and saw Sherlock Holmes {this is my shout out to Whitney and Kirk}.
And super cute.
Ugh so good.
It met all my expectations and I would go see it again if anyone asked me to.
Or by myself.
Please please go see it.

Let's Play a Game {Take 2}

Remember way back when I posted about the toilet in the middle of my backyard? And how I made a game out of it? Yeah we're doing that again. Ready...go.

What's out of place?

I'll give you a hint. It's not the games.
Maybe a close-up will help...

Say hello to Jerzee.
I went to get a game out of my parent's closet yesterday afternoon...
I climbed up there and screamed when I unexpectedly came eye to eye with this gato.
That's all.
