Tim Tuesday

(How many dogs can you find?)

And...Tim just got i.d.ed at the Game Stop to make sure he was 17.

(Draw Something with Tim) - I have to make him guess "sandwich". 
I write: "what you always ask me to make you and I never will."
Got it on the first try.

Told Tim to make Bear an ID tag. He comes back with this:


Me: "I just realized I was eating a salad when my teeth scraped and I chipped one. Then yesterday I was eating a salad when my retainer popped off. Lesson = salads are bad."
Tim: "Tell me that when you’re 800 pounds because you stopped eating salads."

Tim: "I just cracked an acorn with my teeth and ate it. Terrible. Squirrels must have no taste buds."

Me: "Mom’s Magazine felt the need to email me their new issue."
Tim: "Something you need to tell me?"
Me: "Defnitely not. Maybe having 3 dogs equals 1 baby?"
Tim: "Probably."

Tim: "What’s that breed of dog I like? Cous cous?"
Me: "Cane Corso. Cous cous is rice."
(Still calls it cous cous every time.)

Just a heads up that you're probably going to experience a lot of radio silence in KALIWOOD for the next couple weeks. Thanksgiving in WV until Sunday then hop on a plane Monday morning for Palm Springs (annual meeting!) for a week. It's quite the whirlwind. So, blogging will take a hit.

Tim Tuesdays

Every time someone says "cute dog!" to us Tim says "its a cat." And when people ask what type of dog Piper is he always says something random like "Dalmatian" or "mountain lion" with a dead serious face. Poor people are so confused.

Me: "It's so weird that you like ugly dogs."
Tim: "I have the same taste in women."

Seriously?? Tim put this as my address on a self-addressed piece of mail!!! 
And it was delivered today!!

Every time we go through a drive thru Tim uses a ridiculous accent to order. Today: hillbilly redneck.

Tim: "I never get to eat what I want to eat because Kali doesn't like anything."
My Dad: "Welcome to Kali-World"

Tim: My muzzleloader (gun) is the cheapest one they make.
Tim’s Grandpa: I figured you had a $1000 one.
Tim: I don’t have $1000. I thought I was going to one time but then I got a girlfriend.

Lennox is growing! As puppies do, I suppose. She's almost 4 months I think. (Honestly I have a hard time keeping track. How do mothers always know that their child is "76 days and 4 hours" old. I'm like hmm... I think a few months or so at least?!

She's almost Piper's size! But still super floppy like puppies are. Which I think is the best thing about them. She also still have the soft, fuzzy fur and smells like a pup. She's SUCH a quick learner. She had sit, shake, and lay down all covered in less than 5 minutes each. We need to set aside more time to dedicate to training, because she's a great student.

She's food CRAZY. Our other dogs are hauses, but she takes the cake. Literally. I'm begging Tim not to give her human food because it will just make it worse. But somehow she came into our home knowing that if Dad has food, that's where she needs to be.


I've always been against the idea of working out before work because of the sheer amount of time it takes to shower and dry my hair. But my coworker has this routine where she works out, then comes to work, rinses off (we have a shower), but doesn't wash her hair. Then uses a blow dryer and dry shampoo to get the sweat out and style her hair.

So Wednesday and today, I've gotten up at 6:30, snuck out of the room (so the dogs don't go crazy), and headed to the gym. I work out from 7-7:50 and then get to work around 8:10. Then I rinse off, dry shampoo/blow dry my hair, toss it in a bun, change to work clothes, and BAM I'm done! I usually get up around 7 or so without working out so I'm really not getting up that much earlier. And honestly.. it's been so easy.

I don't want to jinx it by saying that but I am pretty pumped. I'm planning to do this routine every Monday, Wednesday, Friday this winter. It's great to not have to worry about working out after work when it's pitch black outside and all I want to do is go home and curl up on the couch.  So hopefully this routine works for me. Especially since I've just entered the Commit To Fit Challenge! (You should too.)


Our Annual Meeting is rapidly approaching! Things have been really busy which is why there's been a lack of posting around these parts. I fly out on December 1. Which means we go to West Virginia for Thanksgiving Nov 26-30 and the next morning I hop on a plane to Palm Springs. Talk about stressful. Luckily this is the last year our event with butt up to Thanksgiving. We've decided to push it back when the schedule lays out that way.. YAY!


Tim and I went to a Bengals game a couple weekends ago. He found $100 bill laying on the ground as we were walking to our tailgate spot. I consider myself a pretty lucky person. But I don't hold a candle to that kid.

Kylie and I randomly got the urge one night to pull out the very minimal Christmas decorations I store and put them up. Since I have an anorexic 5 foot tree and about 4 stockings, it took us no time at all. But.. I was pumped to put up my Rottie ornament for the first time! It was a gift from my mom.. so cute!

Tim is doing No-Shave-November again this year. Much to my dismay. If you remember last year, Tim doesn't grow facial hair. Like at all. All he can get is a light mustache that doesn't connect in the middle. He also buys the most ridiculous clothes because he thinks they are funny. So this month is just a whole lot of embarrassment for me when we are out in public. He just sent me this picture of his work ensemble...

(Don't let the image fool you. That stache doesn't meet in the middle.)

TGIF! Have a great weekend!
