Awkward. So Very, Very Awkward

Working in a children’s dental office, I’m often forced into an uncomfortable front-row seat for spouse bashing. The other day, a mom and dad were trying to schedule a filling for their 2 year old.

I suggested a possible appointment time. Dad mentioned to mom that he thought she had something else scheduled already. So what did she reply to him with, exactly?

Mom: Let’s look in my planner so we can remind your TINY, EMPTY BRAIN what’s going on.

I so did not want to suggest any more appointment times to these people.

And, of course, their 2 year old was standing right there!

 You just go right ahead and keep arguing in front of me. You're blogging gold, my friends.
Later, both parents jokingly asked if they could just leave their child at the office and pick her up at her next 6 month check up. I was awfully temped to say yes!

GIVEAWAY (2 Winners!) and Blog Hop

*Update* This giveaway has ended. Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter!


This week's blog hop is sponsored by Everest Nutrition Krill Oil. You know you should be taking a daily fish oil supplement (come on, now. You know it's true!) Unsure about which one to buy? Sexy Nerd and I have tried many different brands over the years. We really like Everest Nutrition Krill Oil because it comes from tiny crustaceans living in Antarctica, meaning they are more pure (less BPA - super important for a gal like me who has 'baby madness'!) than competing brands. Bonus? No yucky fish burps!
I have been taking an Everest Nutrition Krill Oil pill daily for the past 2 months and can give them a glowing review. Although it isn't one of the benefits Krill Oil focuses on, I think these pills have improved my hair, skin, and nails. I plan to continue purchasing this brand in the future. You can read about lots of other health benefits on their site, KrillOil.com.

Those Lousy Republicans

Sexy Nerd, frustrated by the many smoke detector false alarms in our home, has been suggesting I buy a deep fryer. I was reading reviews on Amazon to find just the right one, when I came across thePresto 06006 Kitchen Kettle Electric Multi-Cooker and Fryer. It can be used as a fryer and a steamer, in a sort of dietary yin yang. Score! As a surprise bonus, someone had written the following...err...helpful review:
"Very handy as it does a lot of different things well and doesn't take lots of precious kitchen space, not like republicans in washington."
WHAT?! I was on the fence before, but now they're hogging all the space in my kitchen? Geez.

Happy weekend, everyone!

The Secret to Soft Summer Feet

I hate shoes.

There, I said it.

To all you strappy sandal gals and stiletto doo-dad fans, I just don't get the shoe obsession. Sure, there are some cute pairs out there, but really, what's better than the comfort of simply going barefoot?

Nothing. Right now, while you're reading this, stretch out and wiggle your toes. Aaaaah.

I work at a dental office and the first thing I do when the last patient leaves is kick off my heels. Of course, there is a down side to all this gallivanting around with naked feet.

You know, apart from the occasional stray piece of used dental floss that makes its way between your bare toes.

KIDDING! We're a sparkly clean office. Really.

Nothing like a little black carpet to make pasty legs seem even whiter. Look away, everyone, before you're blinded! 
And, please, do ignore all those bits and specks you see all over the carpet. I really was kidding about the dental floss. I promise.
Rough, dirty flooring can leave your feet looking and f…

Happy Hour Awkwardness

Let's begin this week with a quick, embarrassing story. Sexy Nerd and I went bowling the other day and decided to partake in the alley's happy hour special. We went to the bar and I ordered us two bottles of beer. It's not something I do often (okay, the last time may have been in Las Vegas, however many years we were last there) but ordering beer is simple enough, right?

Bartender: You want to leave it open?

Me: Sure!

Sexy Nerd: No!

Me: But I want to drink it now.

That's it. From now on, I'm sticking with my Michelob ULTRA Light Cider, straight from the fridge.
(For all my fellow non-orderers of beer, the bartender meant the bill. Oh!)

BLOG HOP! Link Up Your Favorite Posts

My super-cute button. You know you want to post it/pin it/share it/love it:

"Baaaaa" the little lamb says cutely, hindering any attempt you make at resisting.
Yes, I have had a lot (lot. lot.) of sugar and caffeine this evening. Why do you ask?
