Here for some puppy cuteness? Meet Olive and Bernadette.

We love our woolly bullies...even when they flooded our house!

Can't Feel My Face

Just a short, groggy post. I had my wisdom teeth out this morning and it was sooo much easier than I anticipated! Being knocked out is the way to go! However, that was back before 8am and it's now after 4pm and my tongue, lower lip, and most of my lower jaw/cheeks/ears are still completely numb. It's getting a little old! Other than that, I'm feelin' fine.

Pepperoni and Mozzarella. Pizza Time?

Sexy Nerd wanted to order a pizza. I wanted to save our money. So, we bought some pepperoni and mozzarella, which came out to less than the price of one Pizza Hut pizza. There was a problem though. We were out of quick & easy instant pizza dough mix, (which is a fantastic product, in case you've never tried it). Sure, we could make our own pizza dough from scratch, but that's messy and takes a long time. We wanted to eat our pizza ASAP! So, we made one pizza with a tortilla: "One pizza", you ask? "One teeny tiny tortilla pizza for 2 people?" Yes. Sadly, in addition to being out of instant pizza dough mix, we were also out of tortillas! So, we decided to use the next best thing and turned to the cookie jar. "The cookie jar", you ask?? Yes, of course the cookie jar! Where do you keep your biscuits? These seemed like they would make excellent little pizzas. And they did. Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!

A Healthier New Year for Sexy Nerd

Sexy Nerd recently started a new program through work that requires a lot of traveling. He gets sick of all the time wasted at airports, but loves the many meals his company pays for. Fresh seafood in San Francisco. Prime rib in Seattle. Burnt ends in Kansas City. He's been living it up! After his most recent, week-long trip away from home, I decided to play the role of pesky wife and insisted that he step on the scale. Surely you knew there'd be consequences for eating out for every meal, didn't you, Sexy Nerd? The men in Sexy Nerd's family have a history of heart attacks at a young age, so a couple extra pounds is nothing to play around with. I planned to get him back on track by cooking healthy meals when he was home. I was all set to make a scrumptious breakfast of oatmeal with chia seeds (really, it's delicious!) when Sexy Nerd walked in with a bag of groceries. In our almost 7 years as a couple, this was maybe the 2nd time he has ever done any gro

Our Baby is Drunk!

Filmed when Pica was a puppy. Wasn't she cute? Don't worry. The bottle is empty. See? She grew up and turned out just fine. Well, maybe not fine by most people's standards, but fine enough for a Pica dog! Bonus points if you can guess what we were watching.

Pigmas Carols and Christmas Decor

Today my boss bought her son a few pairs of fancy socks. She had me cut the little red bows off each package, thinking this way he wouldn't know they're actually girls'  socks . I kept the bows. Instant Christmas decorations! Doesn't Kitchen Pig look so festive? Like a tiny opera singer, belting out carols. "Oooink to the world, the ham is done..." Accessorized with a festive bow over the kitchen island, you're completely unaware of the mess below...and behind...and on top of the fridge. Gosh, that light fixture looks dusty. Basically, if a bow would fit on it, it got a one. Throw in a holiday hand towel and my Christmas decorating is complete. Oh, and candy! Not that you can actually eat any of the candy. It would fall out and ruin the display. It would ruin Christmas. I'm being dramatic? Pica and Biscuit would dash over, chow down on the wrapped mints, and spend the 25th at the vet. Ahh, nothing li
