Zombie Osama

Today was an important day. A very important day. Not because it has been 3 weeks since our wedding, but because it has become apparent that I needed to teach Bryttan a few valuable skills to survive in the world.

The more time goes on, the more I have begun to recognize events that are leading up to what we have all feared. A zombie apocalypse, lead by none other than Zombie Osama Or (Osombie).

So, as any good boy scout should know, you should always be prepared. So I took Bryttan down to the Gun Range.

She took her Machine Gun up and, well, as the videos below show. She learned well and destroyed the Osombie.

Now lean your head sideways:

A wedding book

So since the dishes are all done and the laundry is folded and I've cleaned the bedroom, I decided to sit down at my fancy, shiny, new, never freezing laptop, and make one of those corny online wedding books for myself! So I start downloading pictures and picking cool backgrounds and then I think "WOW! this would be a cool gift to give Mike for Christmas!" So I keep working at it, moving those little swirly designs around on the page, typing in clever captions and then after a while I realize that I've been sitting there for half the day working on the wedding book that was only supposed to take a few seconds! Finally I get to the end luckily with no problems at all, and am about to check out when I realize that really, Michael isn't going to care if we have this! So I decide that my dear sweet Mom would LOVE this special Christmas gift, wouldn't She? Nope, probably not, haha. So Here I am about to check out when I realize that there isn't really anyone to give it to but myself! So I continue to check out and by the time I find out how much it is going to cost, I've already done the whole thing... Do I really want to spend the $$$? I don't think so.
So I guess I'll post the link so that anyone who wants to look at it can, and I'll continue to think on if I actually want to buy it or not. Oh, but I would have to use my Moms credit card to buy it anyway because they don't take ours! Haha, perhaps this just was not meant to be. Good thing I had nothing else to do today, Sheesh!

Well here it is folks!

And! in other WONDERFUL news!
While I sit here writing this post, my amazing sister over in Chinerland is talking to me over Skype. Dear Skype, how I love thee. You bring me happiness and joy by letting me talk to my sister at random times of the day and night. I love that even though we are so far away from each other, we still act the same when brought together through you. We have our very educational conversations and are very serious women.

Thank you Dear Skype, because of you I can be so far away and still get to watch my nephew walking around in nothing but flip flops while eating Cup of Noodls. Because of you I can talk to my nephew about Yellow Monkey and Ninja Pirates! Because of you I laugh so hard I cry whenever you freeze and make my sister look very funny.

They will be home in 41 days, and I am SO excited :)

Dear Nick Jr, I miss Little Bear...

I have decided that when the day comes that I have little pickles running about in my home, I am going to do whatever I can to keep them from Yo Gabba Gabba. The show is terrifying but something about it keeps you staring at the television and then you see strange monsters and can only think of how much they annoy you and you get distracted thinking of the poor person in the costume dying of heat stroke! You're about to look away when Jack Black comes on the screen in orange spandex, and then they have strange dance sequences performed by kids. I hope my children never discover this as I think I'd go mad if I were to have to have this playing over and over all day, everyday.

Thank you, dear husband

Because who wouldn't love watching a 40 second video of themselves walking in slow motion with sweet ambient music... Better yet, who wouldn't love watching a 40 second video of ME walking in slow motion with sweet ambient music?
