Snow White & Rocky

{Man's Best Friend}
I got a new phone a coup weeks ago. It's called an iPhone...have you ever heard of it? Prob not...its made by a lil teeny tiny company named after a crunchy fruit. Granny Smiths.

Husb got the black one and I got the white beaut {4S'}. Aaaand we had to name them...since we name all of our possessions. So mine is appropriately named Snow White. My niece Luli is obsessed with that Princess lately so it only seems right..since its white and snowy and beautiful and all. And Chris named his Rocky. I suggested Black Beauty...but he obvs declined. When I asked why Rocky he said {and I quote} from the Rock and Rocky...like Rocky Balboa.  So that explains that. Hahaha!

We love them. Best phones ever. Except when Siri gets an attitude with you when you're trying to make her do something. You work for me...gadget! dang.

Throw ya app suggestions at me yo!

Hilar-leg.

 Erry-thing is funny.

Sometimes I get a little delirious as a result of being overcome by the sheer joy that is laughtarity. I laugh at something simple and delicate. But it was so pleasant that I begin laughin unnecessarily after that. no one knows why. This happens to me often. An example of this insanity replays HERE. You know when your body seems to be yearning to..bust a gut...if you will. Welp...that's how I feel rye naw. Well actually right now I am just sittin in my comfs in silence just watching my sister Kiz sleeping on the couch with her face straight into a pillow and wondering how she's breathing...and if she's breathing...maybe I should check on that. Hahaha! seriously I'm worried at about a 4 on a 1-10 scale.

So anyway onto my story....so I took my pants off after work {the completely normal way} to put on comfs and just left my pants on the floor becaaaaause..umm...I have too many other ways to make my Mom proud. So I walked into the closet to put on my J. Timberlake fallopian tube sweats {of course}...couldn't find them...so I pulled on my mavsgear pants...and walked casually back into the bedroom. And right there I was stopped by a hilarious little student named Jean apparently raising her hand with a question...I can't wait for you to see it...omg I'm crackin...Jean the student...ok look.....


Bwaaahahhahahahahahahahahahahahaheep! crackle cackle ha! Just stickin it to the roof. What is going on here? I literally cannot think of anything else when I look at this except that my pants are raising their hand with a very pressing question. I want to frame this and laugh at it erry-day. It's the ordinary things that just really get my goat.

Let me tell ya about my job

She works haaaard for the $money$! Why yes...yes I do...thank ya. This summa I started a new full time j.o.b. I am working for an Internet Retailer called Select Shops which sells blinds, rugs, bedding, fans and lighting. Home decor...if you will. Our company's claim to fame is that we supply all of the rugs and window coverings for the show Extreme Makeover:Home Edition {i cry every time}. And we've just started working with some shows on the Oprah Winfrey Network! I am the Merchandising Coordinator for the rugs merchandise department. & I dig it.

I love my office building which is basically a model trendhome in office building form. Gorgeous Italian style with a big fountain outside the giant front doors and incredible wooden floors and a rad lobby with table hockey and shelves of free snacks and drinks... and I have a granite counter top desk and we're always having contests{i never win} and parties and...I could go on and on. It's actually in the same building as a wedding reception hall. And on Fridays we often see people in tuxes and gowns wander into our office and tell us they're here for the wedding. And we get to laugh and make them feel awkward...then direct them to right place o'course. It's just a great place to work.

People ask me what I do and it's one of those things where I do a lotta diff things and some of it won't make sense to people so I say something like this: My day to day is pretty much organizing and managing all the rugs online which includes 60K+ of those guys. So that's fun. I am part of the merchandising team and together we make sure the products are online and look good so people want to buy them! I've made some good and interesting friends {stories about them will come later ;) }and its a lovely atmosphere.

A couple of pics I've snapped while at the work-kingdom...

My work room. My desk is just to the right there. Balloons are for a white party we were having.
This is the ceiling above my desk. It's magical and sometimes I get a neck cramp staring at it.

It's because I kinda love him. a lot.



My plush pickled perfect pleasant puddin puppin puppernickle is two today! Yep...the Hoosher celebrated his second birthday on this gorgeous Sabbath day. And since I love that little guy more than anything in life {besides maaaaybe...like my husband or something} we super celebrated for him....puppy style. 

After our awe-inspiring church meetings C, KizKat and I took Hooshie and his best friend Kobe to the all time best doggie park in the entire East Valley {or at least within 2 miles of my house :)} The baby boys had a fantast time meeting, chasing, sniffing, and occassionally mounting all of the other dogs and we cracked-a-gut with the entertaining sight.  Later at our weekly fam din we had an Albertson's Cookie cake {the only thing better than plain Albie's cooks} and Puppy Chow for us humans...and the dogs has sprinkled PB dog cookies and the wet dog food they usually never get. I know...I'm the nicest dog mom ever. We also got Hoo an adorb new argyle collar and bone-shaped name tag with our new phone numbers on it...and I may have almost cried just thinking about him getting lost and someone needing to use those numbs. I love my lil man and he has been the best lil blessing to our mini fam the last two years.

Bone and pawprints border...omg..obsess.
Like father like son. Wild and adorb :)

It's a must!


I have forgotten a wonderful tradish...like an id-jit {idiot..}! The package post. In October we got a special HALLOWEEN PACKAGE {yeeks!} from my Moth-In-Law. Let me just tell you that in the month of October the woman was insanely busy...what with her son getting married in which she had to get the whole family to Vegas, hosting an Open House for that wedding the weekend before she was moving, preparing to uproot and move the family from Wash to Cali, AND working full time {all on top of a million regular life things}....and she still managed to send us an outstanding Halloween Package to make us feel good and keep up with the tradish. What a great Mom. There's not much better than getting a big heavy package stuffed with delicious, spooky and adorab themed goods from all over the the great state...that was put together with love. "I have a delivery for the Lucky-tons...family of 3".

Much appreciated. Love her!

Penelope Pinkerton


That's Mrs. Penelope and Ms. Pinkerton to all us humans. These tennie loves are my new workout shoes. and they are screamingly sick-stremely pink! And the way that they joined my feet family was just brilliant and unuse.

So there we were {C and I} in the eye-popping shoe-lined wondrous aisles of DSW. I was happily sportin two different {but equally as sexy} black stilettos. I had one my legs propped up like a flaming flamingo so I could see how the other one looked standing on its own. and while I was checkin out my own left shoe feast I suddenly feel someone slip the sexy stilt right off of my raised foot and slip something much more clunky and comfy right on in its place. Chris seriously straight up snuck off while I was rambling and found some sneaks that he loved and just had to see me in them. Hahahaha! My first instinct was to tell him to wait one hot minute before he tries to remove a stilette from a heel loving dame...but it was just so cute how he was actually diggin the pink sneaks.

The best part is that HE loved them so much while I was all like "yeah they're coo babe...hot...and super pink". He insisted on buying them...marched them to the front... and got them into that brown and black bag. While I followed behind dreaming bout those black beauts. So I got some new workout shoes. And I like them. And my husband loves them. And now maybe I will make it to the gym more often...you know...since I'll have Penelope Pinkerton with me ;)

Hello Headboard.

Ever since moving into our house I have a serious case of the....how you say..."being obsessed with wanting to decorate every square inch of the place but don't not having the time or resources to do it". That's a real thing. I have a very specific style when it comes to home decor. And pieces for that style are unfortunately a lil hard to come by. Plus I might be a little bit of a...how you say...stubborn perfectionist. That's what I hear from the people that know me best :) So I end up making a lot of things so I can have exactly what I want....instead of settling for something close that's just not gonna cut it.

Our master bedroom has been my latest project and most elements in the room have fallen victim of the DIY option. And it's been tote worth it. BUT there was one project that I was putting off because I knew it'd be a biggin. The {fitforaKing} Headboard. The focal point of the room.

But I'm happy, relieved and proud to say that my crafty Queen Mom and I came together to design and create the most beautiful headboard known to.....us. It was def a process but it is just the best feeling to turn something that was just a pencil sketch on a piece of raggedy paper turn into decor reality....from scratch. I love it.
The lovely hannah headboard.

The amaze fabric. Soft, textured and luxurious. Ooh la la!

Our room feels complete with the new piece.

The past 5 weeks...

I haven't blogged in twelve and a half years. And it feels really awkwardly weird. But I am so far behind that I feel like I can never ketchup {catch up..in the food form}.  I have been waaaay...wu-hay busy in real life. The month of October was insane and deliciously entertaining. And our November plans look like our hectic schedules are gonna simmer down a bit. Which will be a nice lil takeabreath break right before the busy holiday season hits. Can I just say I really like my life as it stands? Because I do. I've got a good set-up goin and it feels good to just be currently content.

Ketchup time! Or catsup...if you prefer the off-brand. Hahahaha! What we be doin: Lots of working. Lots of parties. Lots of traveling.

My BIL (bro-in-law) got married in Vegas! We drove up for the occasion and had so much fun with the whole Hayes clan. I mean...it was a seriously great and hilarious time. And we now have a new sister in law AND our first Nephew. Love.
The Hayes kids (minus Beb) and their loves at the Las Vegas temple
The following weekend we flew up to Washington for Dan & Bri's open house in Marysville. I got to help my MIL put the whole thing together and it was a full-blown blast.
 Some of our adorable wedding decor.
My WA girls at the open house!

While we were in Washington my sis Kimmie moved from San Diego to Arizona!!!!!! Yee haw! That makes the 10th family member to move down here since we've been here. We're thrilled to have Kimmie and her doggie Kobe with us...and so is Hooshie...they're best buds.

Kiz & Kobez on Halloween
On Halloween we had a big party to celebrate the holiday(o'course) and Mombo's birthday! Costumegamesandallthemedfood = thebesttimeinlife.
The Bat family! Hahahahaha Both of my boys are just hanging their arms and not tryin to take a pic. And Chris' undies hahahahahaha!!!!!
And we are happy to report that the whole HAYES home base is currently leaving their Washington home and moving down to San Diego {or surrounding area}!!!! Every one of our family members is now within driving distance. Oh glorious day. Can't wait to visit ;)

And on to November!
