Three In One

I'm combining 3 posts in one today. I have a lot to share but don't want to "bug" my email subscribers by filling up their inbox with my mindless blog posts. So here we go.

Two Can Play This Game
I have to thank Sean for inspiring this post. Today I go to write something down in my handy dandy notebook. You all know that I'm a Professional List Maker and I don't leave home without my precious "to do" list. 

I open it up and THIS IS WHAT I FOUND!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I absolutely HATE bugs and this huge beetle gives me the creeps just looking at it. This is a REAL bug folks, dead, but real!

The second I saw it I KNEW that this was Sean's doing.  He's highly aware of my phobia and loves more than anything to see me freak out over these nasty creatures.  He's been known to throw grass hoppers at me, put beetles in my hand, and let red ants crawl on me without my knowledge.  My first thought when I saw this was,  TWO CAN PLAY THIS GAME.
Then I searched the house for places I could hide our little friend.

Should I put it in his vitamins?

On his favorite magazine?

On his pillow?

In his shoe?

On the remote? 

Or in his deodorant?

Maybe next time he'll think twice before messing with me.

Some New Finds
Here are a few pictures of my latest purchases and where I got them.
Don't you just love this necklace? It's now my new favorite! I got it from the Village Quilt Shop for $25

I got this scrunch shirt from Thistles Home Decor for $25. And this mustard striped vest for $25

Thistles is located on 217 East 12300 South suite J1.

The Escobars Featured in Prosper Magazine!
Now this is pretty exciting! My mother and father in law were featured in the the business magazine, Prosper, now available at any local Barns & Noble.  Sean and I even got a little part in there. We were interviewed by the magazine too, and they threw in a couple quotes from us and a picture. I feel like I'm famous now :)

Funny game. My vote is for the deodorant. I am not really afraid of bugs, but the surprise there would startle me.

I hope you get back at your husband for that crazy game he played!:) Love the new shirt and necklace and awesome that you were featured in a magazine!! Very cool!

Carrie said...

What we need to do is get about 1,000 of those and have them dump out of his closet when he opens it! Kind of sounds right out of a horror movie but would be oh so funny! :) Cute outfits as always.
