Random Picture Post: Non-Waxy Photos From the Last Few Weeks #10!

It's that time again, folks, time for a random picture post!
We like wine.
This is a good one.
AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH our new vacuum is pretty damn amazing! We went with a Shark Lift-Away Professional vacuum cleaner since it was waaaay less money than a Dyson Ball and we couldn't be more thrilled. It sure cleans like a motha!
Someone queue up "I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You" by Savage Garden, please.
My first attempt at nail stamping! I bought some Cheeky brand nail stamping plates on Amazon with a gift card I got for Christmas and hopped to it. While the process was definitely labor intensive the first time, I really like the outcome! I can't wait to do more of these in the near future.
Last time Freddo got groomed, the lady who cut his hair knicked him. She told me she didn't think it would be that big of a deal and sent us on our way. When we got a look at it at home, it was a pretty bad cut and lasted over a month on his body. He had to wear the cone for about 10 days because he couldn't stop licking and picking at it. Poor thing. :(
I'm sure I mentioned to some of you that I recently broke my foot. A couple of days after my mom's wedding, my foot felt pretty bad, but never got better. We were walking into the movie theater and my foot just POPPED, and boom, broken 5th metatarsal. I have been in this boot for a month and now need to wear it at least one more. Luckily, I am getting used to my crutches, but it's still a pain in the ass.
This soap came with my May PopSugar Must Have Box. It smells DIVINE. I need to track it down and buy gallons of it. Has anyone tried this in soap, bath and body, or wax? It's an alluring mixture!
My trusty car-steed, Scully, was on her last has gotten to the point where we didn't want to drive anywhere because we were worried it would die. Well, we bought a new car! It's a 2014 Nissan Rogue and we absolutely love it! We had been looking for a while, and I had been doing research for a few months, and I have a feeling she's going to last us many, many years. :)
My favorite Starbucks drink at the moment: the iced hazelnut macchiatto. It's like a caramel macchiatto, but with hazelnut drizzle. Mmmmmmmm, I could go for one right now...
Sunnee mentioned on her blog that she was really close to the recent wildfires we had here in San Diego. Here's a map I took from the TV showing some of the locations of the fires. Now, about 4 more popped up over the course of last week that are not shown on the map. It was a scary week, even though we live closer to where the map says "San Diego". It definitely gave me flashbacks from the 2003 and 2007 fires we had, which were extremely close to where I lived at the time.
The first backyard bonfire of the summer! Oh, you can see our new lights, which we just recently added to the deck!
BEAN BUTT! I love that face he's making, like, "whatchu lookin' at, mama?!" LOL. <3
OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)


  1. Google car!!! You spotted one! I know I told you but I love your car!!! I am gonna look for that soap. Rose water and driftwood sound so sophisticated. Poor poor Freddo. Fire that lady. Stat. Hope Vegas is amazing! Your fortune fulfilled!

    1. Now that I can drive ol' Blue, I love it even more!! Hope you find that soap, it's so nice. I definitely won't use that lady to groom Freddo anymore...she did a number on his psyche, lol. Not winning so far, but I will share if I do! ;)

  2. That brand of soap can be found at Target. Well, it used to be there anyway. It's been a while since I've used it.


  3. I love that you saw the google car, I'm sure people follow it around just to do off the wall things in the background.
    Your pup is so super cute!
    Did you happen to get the Shark at Costco? I'm not sure if yours matches the one I just saw there today?

    1. If I was driving, we would have followed it, but Josh was adamant that we should leave it alone. No fun! :P

      Thank you! Freddo is cute when he wants to be a little ham.

      We got the Shark at Target! It was 50% less than those Dyson Ball vacuums, which we wanted, but this performs real well! It is quite popular, so I bet it was the same vacuum! Did you get it, or any vacuum at all? I am fascinated by cleaning products, lol.
