WTF Wednesday, it’s a booootiful day

Our weather could not be any more perfect.  It’s been so dry and even though it’s quite hot in the afternoon, it’s bearable.  Not at all like summer when you’re sweating while you drink your morning coffee.

And it’s a good thing our weather is so nice because, HALLOWEEN!


Over decorate much?

For the record, I took that picture last year while MacGyver and I were out driving.  I would never ever decorate like that.  Besides, I prefer wreaths to pumpkins.

This year little Hank will be dressed as Chewbacca.  Boomer was supposed to be Hans Solo but he did not appreciate the costume so he may have to be a Grumpy old man, which was the back up costume.

MacGyver and I don’t typically dress up although I did see this costume online and I thought it would be perfect if the kid were here.

halloween pun costume

I am all about the pun-ny costumes, get it?  Unfortunately, the kid is in his 20’s so I don’t how he’d feel about wearing a diaper but I get the feeling he’d revolt.  Actually, I’m pretty sure he would.

I’m thinking of moving to Texas.  I just have to convince MacGyver that it’s a good choice.  I mean, I have found my perfect job.  PERFECT.

It’s a pupternship.  You actually get paid a hundred bucks an hour to hang out with dogs.  No, I’m totally serious.

muttsThe only caveat, I don’t live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  So, I need to convince MacGyver that we have to move or I need to convince Muttt’s to open a location here.  Mutt’s, are you listening?  Mutt’s?  Mutt’s?  Bueller?  Bueller?

WTF, it’s Wednesday, did you dress up today?  What’s your costume?

WTF Wednesday, Trick or treating and squirrels

Squirrels can fly but they can’t fly on Frontier.  And one woman in Orlando found that out as she tried to fly to Cleveland on Tuesday night with her emotional support animal, a squirrel.

squirrel on flightNo, I am not kidding.  You can click here to read the full story.  I think we should get her and the peacock lady together.  Maybe they can carpool on all their trips from now on, seeing as how they won’t be allowed to fly anymore.

So, have you heard the news?  We’re having a bit of a hurricane in Florida right now and he’s not messing around.


We try.

Speaking of Halloween, is anyone else super excited about the new Halloween movie?  Because I am.  And probably a lot of teenagers in Chesapeake, VA too, you know because what else are you going to do on Halloween night if you’re not allowed to trick or treat?

I love me some Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and some Kit Kats but I ain’t about to risk jail time for them.  Of course when I was 13 I probably would have so its probably a good thing I didn’t grow up in Chesapeake.

WTF, it’s Wednesday and now I’m totally craving chocolate….

WTF Wednesday, a coffin in my car


Last weekend MacGyver and I went to some estate sales and a few garage sales.  My mom has been telling me for a few years now how she’d like to have a Lane cedar chest.  Since I have found 4 or 5 of them she wanted me to look for one for her.  This weekend I found one and even better, I got it for 10 bucks.

jumping for joy


I need to do a little bit of touch up on it to get it looking as good as it did when it was first built but I didn’t want to leave it in the front of my garage.   I just finished the dresser I had sitting out there for the past 3 weeks and I have finally started to get my respect back in the neighborhood so I opted to leave it in my car.

MacGyver was okay with that for a few days because he doesn’t really want it near his garage anyway but yesterday he said I should probably take it out of my car because it blocks a little of my view and if I decide to take the dogs anywhere, there’s no place to put them.  Little does he know, Boomer rides in the front seat and Hank sits on my lap and practically drives so I don’t need the back seat.

But the real reason I want to keep the chest in my car is because it’s a great hiding place.  I quickly discovered that I can hide all my purchases right inside the chest and then move them to the house when MacGyver isn’t home.  And since my mom isn’t coming until November, I can shop the entire month of October without having to explain my obsession with the Dollar Tree or Macy’s.  It’s a win win.  I just had to think of a reason to keep it in the car.

And then it occurred to me, Halloween.  I could get that fancy paint that comes off with soap and water and name my SUV ‘Halloween Hearse’ and then I could just dress the cedar chest up like a mini coffin.  It’s perfect. I’m doing it.

So if you see a Ford Escape dressed up like a hearse blasting this music

It’s just me.

WTF, it’s Wednesday and I am sooooo excited for Halloween.

Have you gotten a costume yet?
