Mr. America

Hello, hello!

The first part of yesterday afternoon was all about running errands. I received my sister’s baby shower invitations in the mail on Tuesday, so I addressed them and mailed them out yesterday afternoon.

I also did a little shopping and bought a few things for our trip to Hawaii. Obviously, I needed a new purse and pair of wedges.

While I was out shopping, I also picked up a Silicone Travel Tube that I found at CVS. It’s basically a heavy-duty squeeze bottle. I already own a couple of travel bottles, but after I use about half of the product inside, it’s almost impossible to get the rest out. This silicone tube thing seems like it’s going to be awesome. There’s some serious squeezing potential! I’ll be sure to report back!

While I was out, I also bought Murphy more of his dog food.

And now he’s now obsessed with the bag. One-track pug mind.

After running errands, Murphy and I went to do some visiting at the senior home.

We’ve visited the senior home a few times now, so we’re starting to see the same faces again and again. While making our rounds yesterday, a bunch of people recognized Murphy and called him by name. One man even gave him a new name.

When we walked into the room of the gentleman, who once owned a pug himself, he saw Murphy and enthusiastically said: “Here comes Mr. America!” Haha! Love it.

Murphy being called “Mr. America” totally cracked me up. I told Mal about it when he got home and we’ve been calling Murphy it ever since.

Giving people pug therapy is tough work, so Murphy was exhausted on the ride home. Look at that pathetic face!

Dinner

On the agenda for dinner was burgers with guacamole and Rotel, so I whipped up the quac while Mal made the burgers. (My “recipe” is just minced garlic, lime juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste.)

I ate a bunch of guacamole with rice crackers while I waited for dinner to cook. I cannot be trusted around it.

Rotel + guacamole + burger = DELICIOUS!

On the side, we had Sweet Potato Wedges.

Excellent dinner!

Question of the Day

If you had the chance to do this, would you?

Mal and I are seriously considering it (because we’re crazy).

  1. If I were in “the cage”, then yes, most definitely! What island(s) are you going to? My hubs used to live there (while I lived in CO) and I visited frequently…if you’re going to Oahu, you MUST go to Haleiwa (North Shore) and eat at Opal Thai. No joke, best Thai in your life. Just walk up to the counter, act confused, and then when Opal asks you “you like spicy, mild? Chicken, tofu? Sweet, sour?” ANSWER HIM. Then sit down and let him do the rest. You’ll be satisfied for days 🙂

  2. I would ABSOLUTELY swim with sharks (in a cage!)! Do it!! 🙂

    The athletic trainers where I get treatment use those silicone bottles for their massage lotion, and say they’re better than anything else they’ve ever used! Inventions like that are so funny; why didn’t that exist before??!

  3. Having an outing once in a month is great. There by you can spend some more time with your partner. Murphy is looking so cute in all the pictures especially with the food bag. The burger is a good option after a tiring day, less time consuming to make.

  4. Every time I get ready to take a trip I want to splurge on this bag…..lol.

    I bought a three pack of those squeeze bottles, they’re great!

  5. Heck no! I grew up on the ocean and have a respectful fear of it-and sharks!

    I love buying new shoes for vacation-how great buying sandals to wear in a few days, while we are all still wearing snow gear!

  6. Totally do it! We went on a Great White dive in South Africa, and it was amazing and breathtaking. My husband was skeptical (more like scared) but after he got in he would do it again and again and again! The sharks are so amazing in the water…and heck, you are in HAWAII!!

  7. So first of all…love that handbag.
    Second…”Mr. America” is hilarious and makes the funniest faces
    and lastly, I love the ocean, but have a fear of sharks, so sadly, I wouldn’t take a cage tour, but if you do, you have to take underwater pics of the big shark snout coming at your cage…LOL

  8. YES DO IT! I have heard it is the most amazing experience. Last time I was in Oahu, I chose to do a dolphin experience instead of the shard activity. The dolphin thing was cool, but I think you will get more out the shark activity.

  9. Probably! Amazing at how much I want to do now compared to a few years ago. Paragliding? Yes! Zip-lining? Yes! Meeting sharks? Well, okay!
