Baby Liam

Liam is the happiest baby ever.

Seriously, he'll laugh at anything ...

Even my dad's awful "Dad Jokes".

And that my friends, is the ultimate sign of happiness!

No Matter What . . .

The Beer Fest in Idaho was exactly how I imagined it.  A bunch of unattractive people stumbling around with only one goal in mind: 

Drink As Much Beer As You Possibly Can.
No Matter What!

No matter if you can no longer see, let alone walk straight.

No matter if you've puked up all the beer and pretzels you've eaten. That just gives you room for more beer.

No matter if the port-a-potty has become your permanent residence.

No matter if you've lost your beer cup, I'm sure there are plenty in the trash can you can dig out.

No matter if you have already passed out on the grass, someone should be making sure your cup is full.

No matter if you are so drunk that you start posing in other people's photographs.

(We still have no idea who that bald dude is in the back)

No matter if you feel like you must hold onto the grass in order not to fall off the earth.

No matter if every person you see has an exact twin.

(Ok, check out how creepy Lin's zombie hand is. Her hand looks dead!)

No matter if you can't win an argument you've been having with that tent pole all day.

No matter if the beer cup keeps missing your mouth.

And especially no matter if you're not as think you drunk I am! 

(From left to right:  Shauna's mom's beer, Shauna's mom, Lin, Shauna's beer, Shauna, Lindee's beer, my beer, and me!)

(Lindee's hand looking a little less zombie-ish)

But seriously.  Good effin times yo!  People are insane when there is all-you-can-drink beer at stake!  At some point during the day, Mike and I were standing under the tent when I felt someone grab my butt.  As soon as I turn around to see who it was I get a nice hard squeeze to the boob!  I look up and there is this chick standing there smiling and not wasting one other second, she does the same to Mike!

Yeah, we both got groped by the same chick.  Apparently she had made it her goal to grab 300 booties and 600 boobies that day.

Hey, who are we to stand in her way?

After the fest was over, the wait for the bus back to the hotel was taking forever so we stuffed ourselves in a cab with a bunch of other drunks.  And of course Mike just happens to know these people in the cab.  I swear he knows someone EVERYWHERE we go!

(Cab ride back to the hotel)

After everyone had a much needed nap, we headed to dinner.

The weekend turned out great. (Much better than a stupid graduation ceremony!)  It was me & Mike, Lin & Lance, and below is Lin's bro- and sis-in-law:

And for some reason whenever there is drinking involved, I tend to start force feeding those around me.  If you scroll up a bit, you will find a similar picture with me feeding Mike...

 But she loves it.

And we'll definitely be going back next year!

Stick a Pin in that Shit!

This past weekend was a blast!  But before I get to the fun part of my weekend, here's a bit of the boring part....

My graduation pinning ceremony. 

What's a pinning ceremony you ask?  I have no idea but I went.   

And I got pinned. 

With this.


What is this pin for you ask? I have no idea, but I think that wearing the pin actually makes you stupider (See?  I don't even use real words now!).

Mike decided to actually pin the stupid thing on me and ever since, my brain has the dumb. Or maybe it was just because I was sitting next to Lindee.

Her blondness could have somehow floated out her ear and settled into my brain.  I'm better now, but didn't want to take any chances so I gave my pin to Mr. Moose the Miner here. 

He's an accountant too.  Obviously.

Anyway.....oh yes, this pinning ceremony.... 

I graduated in December but of course they only have one ceremony a year for all graduates which is why I am just now getting pinned.  I have to say, a graduation pinning ceremony is ten times better than a regular cap and gown graduation ceremony.  Pretty sure they don't serve wine during the comencement!

Which you think would be the reason why I skipped out on going to my cap and gown ceremony the next day but no, I had more important things to do. 

Yes, a much more significant event required my attendance ...




... More to come ...

Fur, Tuft, Mane, Mop, Whiskers, & Fluff

It was time.

Definitely time for Gus's annual summer haircut.

My house was filling up with hair.  Hair that began accumulating to create whole new dogs within hours.


This little puppy was created in just 5 minutes:

It was like the Gremlins except Gus didn't have to get wet to create new fur ball dogs and he didn't turn into an ugly hairless creature with beady red eyes and shark teeth.

(However I did see one with a cigarette in his mouth.  Please don't tell my landlord.)

So we took him into the groomer lady and she shaved him down. He went from being our massive furry mountain dog....

To our skinny little puppy dog.

Mike and I picked him up a stuffed frog on the way home from the groomer as a little reward.

It's always shocking the first time I see him. But, he looked a lot better than last time.   I didn't even cry.

And neither did Gus.

Potty Mouth

Every now and then I will get an email from different businesses or other bloggers who want to do advertising on my blog or have me write a review about their product. Normally it's for products like sex toys romantic candles, and awesome hand bags, but I've never received a request like the one I received this morning.

I open my email to find the following message:

Dear Pooba Editor,

I came across your blog while looking for people who have talked about pooping and wanted to reach out to see if you were interested in sharing a graphic my creative team and I designed.

If you're interested - I'd love to connect.


"Looking for people who talk about POOPING"

Do I really talk about poop that much? I thought I'd do a search for the word Poop on my blog to see if this guy was just talking out his ass.

I started listing these all so important pooping posts below but realized it is a never ending list. So I stopped at 14.

Am I really spending this much time linking up blog posts that talk about poop?

Yes. Yes I am.
