Flashback Friday

Posted on

It’s Friday! Cheers, ya’ll!

My favorite part of that picture is the sippee cup in the bottom left corner. Leading me to believe I was taunting my toddler because I can drink wine and he can’t. MAN I love being an adult.

So I had this post about my homemade pizza experience all cued up for today and then I was like, you know what? It’s FRIDAY. It’s the weekend. Let’s do something FUN! So I went back to my old blog, the one I used to keep before Casey’s whole family started reading it and I could talk about sex and what not, and I pulled my favorite. So here you go. One of my favorite posts of all times, for your Friday reading pleasure.

(WARNING: There may or may not be a picture of something that rhymes with paint.)

Off My Chest – The Facebook Edition

Posted on

I don’t know how to say this nicely so I’m just going to come out and say it – Facebook sucks. It has jumped the shark, gone the way of neon and legwarmers, had a fat lady singing, whatever colorful phrase you want to use to describe something that used to be fun and relevant but has now been overrun by the digital equivalent of crazy cat ladies and paste eating conspiracy theorists, all armed with absolutely no sense of humor and a someecard account.

Jones isn’t sure how he feels about the boardwalk. Or the ice cream.

Greetings my friends! I am writing this from the great state of Delaware, about a block away from the little part of the Atlantic coastline called Rehoboth Beach. I believe Rehoboth is an ancient Native American term for salt water taffy, but I’m not sure.

We are here for the 30th Smith Family Vacation. That’s right. 30th. For 30 years in a row the whole clan gets together to spend a an entire week vacationing with each other. There are the four Smith siblings, of which Casey’s dad is the brother, and all of their kids, grandkids, inlaws, outlaws, etc. It’s usually about 23-27 people, and in all 30 years no one has ever killed anybody. So they keep doing it.

Off My Chest – Game Etiquette Edition

I need to get something off my chest. It’s been bothering me for almost a week now. Call it a rant, call it a bitch fest, call it a spaghetti dinner. I don’t care. Here goes.

Updates and Such – 4th of July Edition

Posted on

Hello there! I hope you all survived your 4th of July. My sense of irony and belief in natural selection makes the 4th of July one of my favorite holidays. Any time you combine drunk people and explosives, hilarity and/or herd thinning is bound to occur!

We didn’t light up any fireworks. Heck, we barely drank (by barely I mean I only had two beers, a margarita and four vodka and Red Bull Zeros. But that was for the WHOLE DAY). Instead, we did what any couple would want to do on a day where the sun was blazing down and the heat index was over 100. That’s right. Take our toddler to the Pirate’s game.
