Meet Dug, our newest fur baby!

For those who don’t know our newest cuddle bug yet, meet Dug. He’s a 50 lb., sweet-as-pie, lovable, huggable, kissable, Tazmanian devil with a bundle of energy. We got him from a wonderful local rescue called Southern Skies at 8 months old. They had originally named him Douglas and – since we love Dug from the movie, Up, well… it seemed an obvious choice.

And it suits him. 🙂

First day of fall

I love fall. Everything about it – the crinkling of leaves, the scent of bonfires and toasted marshmallows, the taste of pumpkin (to a degree. I’m not crazy-white-girl-pumpkin-spice in love with fall. I like my pumpkin in moderation).

But fall fashion HAS to be my favorite. Sweaters, cardigans, boots, and scarves. Lots and lots and lots of scarves… I have a Harry Potter scarf, a Doctor Who scarf, a gray scarf, a blue scarf (and apparently just turned into Dr. Suess!).

Anyway, the point is – fall is awesome.

When a man gets his first pedicure…

I have long tried to get Steve to get his first pedicure. He tries to keep his toes and feet groomed and tidy, but there’s nothing like the experience of going to a spa and getting pampered for an hour. But, every time I mention the possibility, he scoffs at the mere idea of a man getting a pedicure. Who does such a thing?! (Lots of people, but I digress.)

During our beach vacation this summer, I scheduled myself a pedicure and jokingly mentioned scheduling one for him. Imagine my surprise when he actually said yes! Of course this momentous occasion had to be recorded!

And so, dear reader, I give you Steve’s first pedicure. Enjoy. 🙂

Travelling with a NON Harry Potter fan…

This is my first guest-post (ghost-post? ghost-written-post?) user inspired comic. True story, this happened when my good friend and co-author, Heatherlyn Egan, and her friend Caleb went to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Caleb, bless his heart, is not the die hard Harry Potter fan that Heatherlyn and I are… but I’ll forgive him, since it led to this hilarious back-and-forth between the two.

Enjoy! 🙂

Jazz it up a little

This week’s comic is brought to you by a fun Instagram contest for the end of August. The only rule for the subject was: black-and-white. I decided to go with a vintage jazz style straight from the Roaring Twenties. (Which, let’s be honest, is awesome. The height of jazz, big band, and swing music? Don’t even get me started on the fashion!). The comic depicts me as a lounge singer belting out a tune with Steve rocking the bass* in the background.

*Side Note* You have to admit, he’d totally be one of those bassists. Or, maybe one of those bass guitar players who stands around bobbing his head to the music and plucking at the strings. You know the kind I’m talking about.
