Photo Dump IV

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Hi, friends!

I’m coming back from Mexico today, so, in the meantime, please enjoy a random mix of photos from my iPhone. I haven’t written one of these “photo dump” posts in quite a while, so I figured it was about time for another one!

Quinn loves the rocks in our boot tray. At least once a day, he plays with them and they keep him entertained for quite awhile. He usually puts them in my rain boots, but he also likes sliding them down Murphy’s back. Murphy just sits there and lets him do it because he is a good pug brother. And Quinn’s tongue… he sticks it out when he’s concentrating. I think it’s the most adorable thing ever.

This pic was taken on one of the first nice days this Spring. Quinn and I are both wearing vests because it was so warm outside. Vest twins!

“The most dangerous chore in the world.” That’s what my in-laws call replacing the flood lights over the garage at their house. That’s my father-in-law at the top of the ladder, which is in the back of his pick-up truck. Despite Mal offering his help, my father-in-law insisted on doing it himself. Mal and I just prayed he made it down safely. Thankfully, he did.

An outtake from Quinn’s 10-month photo shoot. Murphy’s face totally cracks me up. He’s like: Get it together kid, so she’ll give us a treat already.

I snapped a photo of this Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt ad to remind myself to watch it. I heard it was really funny! I also read this magazine right before the marathon, so I planned to throw it away before I started running. Side note: I still haven’t watched the show. Oops. I need to get on that, huh?

Justin’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups. OMGGGG, I love them so much! The nice people from Justin’s sent me two bags to try, and Mal and I plowed through them in just a few days. We put them in the fridge and, holy cow, they were little bites of heaven in your mouth. I actually like them more than their regular peanut butter cups!

Quinn and me before Kaitlyn’s baby shower. Unfortunately, we never managed to get a photo of him looking at the camera, but it’s still a nice memory. (I think he was too distracted by Murphy.)

Grass is whack. Quinn’s first experience with grass was too funny. He didn’t know what to make of it. His face says it all. Haha!

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Mask. I’ve actually blogged about this face mask a few times now, and I just love it. It deep cleans all of those dead skin cells and junk that clogs pores and makes skin look dull. It leaves your skin soft and smooth and your pores looking smaller. I use it almost every week. Love it.

Murphy is a professional pillow crusher. The second I finished making the bed, he jumped up and crushed Mal’s pillow with his big pug butt.

Quinn ended up under the dining room table and became obsessed with his hook-on chair. He must have spent a solid 5 minutes pointing, talking, and reaching up to grab it. Fascinating!

Walking outside in bare feet with my little love. I am so happy that the warm weather is finally here! Related: My t-shirt is a blast from the past.

More fun with rocks, more tongue action. He is the sweetest boy ever.

Laughing hysterically at Dad. I can’t remember exactly what Mal was doing, but Quinn thought it was hilarious! His laugh is my favorite thing ever.

Question of the Day

Here’s a fun game for you guys: Pull out your phone, look at your photos, and scroll back 10 photos. What is it a photo of? Please share!




  1. Oh my gosh. I totally thought I was going to scroll 10 pictures in and see something boring. I actually found a picture of a lost dog I found a couple of weeks ago. I was walking my dog and she ran up to us on the street. She tried to then run from me, but I caught her. She is now safely back with her family who learned they need to be extra careful about keeping the garage door open.

    I love the picture of your little guy with your pooch. They totally look like they are having a moment of sibling rivalry. Too cute!

  2. My 10th photo is actually a video from midway airport last week…there were hundreds of people with signs and American Flags ready to greet a plane full of veterans arriving from DC. There was a band too! Annddd of course that all made me cry haha 🙂

  3. My maltipoo all covered up on the couch and cuddling with his stuffed toy lion who we call “simba” 😉

  4. My 10th photo was a picture I had my daughter take while waiting in line at Walmart of a turkey and cheese waffle sandwich that looked like something I could make just by looking at the picture, so I had her take a snap of it. To which the lady behind me said “very smart idea for easy & fast recipes” very smart young lady. I walked out of Walmart prouder than I entered. lol

  5. A picture of the venue at my cousin’s wedding – it was so beautiful! And it was so much fun to celebrate with my family.

    Quinn is so adorable! Thanks for sharing all these photos!
