I’m an adult

Taco Bell does not exist in Sweden. Therefore, on our recent trip to Barcelona, I really wanted to go to one since I haven’t eaten there for 3 years.

When I was a kid, I was allowed to get a beef burrito and a small order of nachos.

Now I’m an adult and I decide for myself. So I got a beef burrito and a LARGE order of nachos.

Merry Christmas from Pigs without Pants

I’ve always thought pigs on cards at Chrsitmas is a strange thing. Apparently, many places eat ham for Christmas dinner, so this somehow equates to pig cards, pig cookie cutters, pig ornaments, etc. It’s just weird, especially when the pig is happy or also excited about Christmas. Just seems cruel.

But one thing I’ve noticed…. no matter where you are in the world… pigs don’t wear pants.

Merry Christmas. I leave you with these words:

We are all the same in this world. No matter what country you live in, pigs don’t wear pants.

All of the other reindeer USED to laugh..

I had to go to the grocery store to buy reindeer for dinner tonight. I plan to tell the kids that these were the reindeer that just didn’t make the cut for the holidays. (Then I’m going to throw just one cherry tomato into the mix).

If only it were edible

This came up on my ads today.

1. I don’t want this blanket, but I really want a pizza now.

2. Isn’t it odd that these girls in a white bedroom are just reading a book like normal people under their blanket. I think if someone had a pizza blanket, they’d probably just be rolling around all over the floor laughing hysterically.

I’d love to have a glass, but I’m the designated driver

At a party a few weeks ago where I happened to be the designated driver, this was one of the drinks served. I chose the right party to volunteer to not drink alcohol.
