Updates: Bees, Mermaids, Jogging, Science, Margaritas & Pugs!

BLARRRGH! So many things going on right now. It’s all good though, just a bit hectic. I’m multitasking like a beast right now at least, so that helps.


It’s probably going to be a few days before I can get back to my blog and catch up on reading others’ posts since I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me, so I figured I’d just pop in for some quick updates.

Update #1:

Remember my post about how Cheerios and Veseys Seeds teamed up to mail out millions of wildflower seeds to encourage people to plant them and help out with the lowered bee populations? Well, I checked the mail and discovered that they’d finally come! 😀 Huzzah! Looking forward to getting to plant them soon!


Update #2:

You know those big props with the holes in them that you stick your face up to . . . I swear I am not talking about a glory hole here, people. I mean those big standup photo prop images where you put your face through the hole to take a picture? Here’s a Ghostbusters one Cupcakes and Machetes and I used to take a photo with in case my terrible description still hasn’t made it clear what I’m babbling about.

C&M (on the left) and Me (on the right). “We came, we saw, we kicked its ass.”

Well, although mine I made was no where near as cool as this Ghostbusters one, I made one of these picture stand thingies! (I should really learn what they’re actually called.) A friend needed a mermaid one for her daughter’s birthday party, so here’s what I came up with for her. (Forgive the terrible quality of my kindle’s camera. The colors are a lot more vibrant in person, and this was before I used a blade to cut out the mermaid’s face hole. Which is definitely a phrase I never thought I would write.)


Update #3:

I’ve decided to take up jogging! Which is something I never thought I’d say. Even more so than “cutting out a mermaid’s face hole”. 😛 I usually prefer other types of workouts but it really wasn’t that bad. At least not as bad as I remember it being in high school gym class. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely feeling it in my legs, but it wasn’t as torturous as I’d expected it to be. My boyfriend was into running track and playing soccer in school so I asked him for some running tips, and I found that listening to music while doing so made it way more pleasurable of an experience. Well, as pleasurable as running can be, really.


Update #4:

Getting ready for my weekend out of town. I’m so excited! 🙂 Celebrating Cupcakes and Machetes’ dirty thirty birthday/margarita-fest! Book club! Participating in the local March for Science! There’s so much fun to be had. I’ve still gotta pack, wrap those presents, make her birthday dessert, and do what only feels like a million other things, but I’m really looking forward to hanging out with my friends. ❤

There’s plenty of other things going on that have really been keeping me busy, but I won’t bore you with the details, and besides, I still have a lot to work on before I head out of town tomorrow. So with that said, enjoy some pugs!


Gandalf, the smoosh-faced.


Cutest infestation ever.

  1. I need to get back into jogging ASAP! The pig-minion demands it!
    Can’t wait to party hard with you all weekend! ❤
    (Also, that mermaid cutout is bad ass and you know we'll wish we had it to play with when we're tipsy later!! 😛 )

  2. I jus love the phrase using a blade to cut the mermaids face!! Not your everyday turn of phrase. Nice post, keep up with the jogging, it gets better after awhile and becomes quite addictive. 😊

  3. I snorted at the “glory hole” comment. I have no clue what those are called either. Life-sized cutouts? *shrugs in ignorance* I love that mermaid one you made #talented, and I was surprised about jogging, too! Not being forced to jog/run in a gym class setting and at my own pace is wonderfully fulfilling! I haven’t jogged in a few months due to annoying health problems, but I have plans to get back into it. I was even thinking of starting a jogging blog (say that three times fast) just to record my progress. There’s a park near me that’s 5.5 miles and one of my goals is to jog the length of that without stopping to walk. It’s a definitive goal to work towards. Yay other joggers!

    I wish I had bed pugs. I only have bed kitties :p

    1. Thank you so much! 🙂 I’m glad you like how the mermaid turned out. I was so nervous about working on such a big piece in traditional art, thinking that if I messed up at all during the inking/coloring it would ruin the whole thing. lol
      That’s cool that you want to get back into jogging and even blog about it. If you do that blog be sure to let me know so I can follow and be supportive . We can help motivate each other! 😛
      Ha, bed pugs are definitely nice, but at least bed kitties don’t snore like pugs do! lmao Sometimes they sound like what you’d imagine a big trucker would sound like when he snores. 😛

      1. I think the mermaid turned out great!

        I will definitely do that. I love organizing things and making spreadsheets and charts hehe, so I might do that to track my progress back to being able to run a mile, then 5k, then the 5.5 miles. It would be fun 😀

        I’ve heard about legendary dog snores lol. My cats both snore, too,, and it’s hilarious. I”ll be sitting in the front room and I’ll hear a noise, wondering “What the hell is that?” and it’s kitty snores.
