Thank You Very Much - bait and switch

Time for our weekly free therapy courtesy of Kmama and her Thank You Very Much carnival!

 

A big Thank You Very Much to my perfectly behaved (and highly motivated) mare who parked me under the tree so I could stand on her back and get her some of these:

It would have been funny (since I’d dared to say the word APPLE outloud and you ran for the tree), if you hadn’t actually come an eyelid away from putting my eye out, Thank You Very Much.  Seriously, that would just be cruel for a deaf chick ;)

And a hearty Thank You Very Much to this little booger who has maintained two speeds lately:

Overdrive…

And Parked:

Oh wait… perhaps it should be caffeinated and decaf?

(Sorry Mimi, I had to… after you called me out on the Starbucks last post :)

The concurrent nap strike at home is so not cool buddy, Thank You Very Much.

And to the manufacturers of this super duper amazing 25% less saturated fat oil…

I think I’ve figured out where that 25% comes from… Thank You Very Much!

And last but not least…

You know those Macys advertisements that include eleventy perfume swatches that fall out when you get your mail?

Well, my poor husband wound up demonstrating that it did indeed smell as good on him as it did on the paper, Thank You Very Much.  Why yes, this did entail him holding still and mumbling various gripes under his breath while I rubbed the paper all over his neck…

But can you blame me???

The man has been out elk hunting, and if you remember this:

elk hunter

(please do not read the link unless you want to embarrass me all over again), you may recall that he hunts with a certain “essence”.

elk fire 

Oh yes… he is dousing himself with elk pee againThank You Very Much!

Y’all… can you READ what that bottle says?  Why on earth you would want to be s#xually attractive to a teed off elk bull is beyond me.

I’m breaking out the Gio paper sample again, Thank You Very Much!

 

And to revisit the Mr. Volcyum adventure that happened last year… catch it here.

Thank You Very Much!

LMBO!! THis post is just too funny for words. I can't get over the "skinny" oil and the s#xual attractant. Is that for real. I guess you learn something new every day!!! Thanks for the late night laugh!!

Shana said...

Ooh I have missed that eye candy lol. What is it with the overdrive in the kids lately. Blaze was a terror today and he has had so many meltdowns lately it is crazy. Whew. I just tell myself this too shall pass. It will pass right?? Please?? Anyway we can hope. Ahh, that Itty Bit is such a cutie. He looks like a little ray of sunshine. Gorgeous. And I have to say he has the prettiest lips. Why do the males get the eyelashes and the lips?

Trac~ said...

LOL too funny! I grew up with my dad and uncles who hunted and had the same "scent" - YUCK!!! Even though the baby boy is in overdrive or park - he is such a doll! P.S. I sure hope you can read this as it looks VERY TINY while I am typing it - I don't know WTH is wrong with my puter this morning - UGH! Have a great day! :o) xoxoxo

Kmama said...

Girl, Buster is giving up naps already. he hardly ever naps on weekends anymore. He's TWO. I had Buddy napping until he was five!! But, I feel your pain.

LOL at the elk pee and cologne samples. For the record, Acqua Di Gio is one of Jdaddy's and my favorites and it smells awesome.

Leiah said...

Acqua Di Gio is the best! Looks like Itty Bit is the perfect illustration of how my life has been going lately - 200 mph until I crash. Elk pee? Seriously?

renee said...

you.are.hilarious. and itty bit is just too cute for words!!!! thanks for the laughs this morning!

Amy said...

So how often is he in "park"? Lula Mae still naps once a day (thank goodness!) but I can't get her to "park" any other time! Even when she eats her mouth is going nonstop! I can't lie, I take advantage of putting little miss in the car just so she is strapped down :-)

HAHAHAHAHA! Skinny oil.... they got you good!

I have to say that if Charlie doused himself with any kid of pee he would have to sleep in his truck. No joke. I have to say I don't mind one bit that Charlie is not a hunter! He says once you have to hunt people overseas it really messes up the whole "hunting" experience. LOL

Foursons said...

Jakob had 2 speeds when he was Itty Bit's age and they were the same- super charged or asleep. There wasn't much of an inbetween and it was exhausting!

Elk pee- YUCK. Sometimes the thrill of the hunt is just a bit to much.

Together We Save said...

OMG Elk Pee!! This is so funny, and typical of hunters. Oh and I love the shot of the little one and his "Starbucks"!

Allenspark Lodge said...

A motivated mare... that scares me.

Tiffany said...

Ahh...hunting season! Which means another round of embarassing stories for us! Woohoo!!!!!

Tara said...

My 2.5 year old has been in overdrive for a while. I don't even want to think about naps disappearing. They are the only thing that keeps me sane.

I got a few giggles from the oil. You are very observant!

My dad used to buy deer pee. Shoooo-wee!

Brandi said...

BAHAHAHAHAHA! Elk Fire! I just LOL and DB wanted to know what was so funny...

And, totally unrelated to this post, but I'm still laughing about the prank your dad pulled on you the other day. It makes me giggle just thinking about it. :)

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

I am laughing soo hard! I love the oil photo...honestly, what a rip off...and the ELK cologne..NO thank you!!! ;)

shmode said...

Yep, I know hunting season is here when the pure washes come into the shower and the elk pee is used like an aftershave.

Beth Zimmerman said...

Rachel!
You are (almost) always a HOOT! Today you're an educational hoot! What does he do with the Bull Elk once he attracts it? Or do we NOT want to know? Love you, girlie!
Beth

Kari said...

Could that have been a more funnier tyvm post. Elk pee, a caffeinated kid, skinny oil bottles, rubbing paper on Mr. Daddy!

Good laugh for my morning!

GunDiva said...

Please make him leave the Elk Pee at home when you come out for HCR next year.

And give Kona a big ole hug for me (Itty Bit, too, I suppose).

K- floortime lite mama said...

Rach you blog puts me in a good mood
U really are a phenomenal writer
Please write a book !!

Kameron said...

It takes a special kind of wife to deal with Elk pee. I am sooo not that wife! Ha!

Killlashandra said...

hehehehe it would be nice to think that the bribe of the apple was really why she stood so still for you to pick them. Maybe subconsciously she new a treat was coming. :)

And I can relate, mine is either running nonstop or passed out too. Although kindergarten has helped a little. He's a little more tired at the end of the day then before.

Although he still likes to run laps around the kitchen island for "exercise."

Stacy said...

See...at least when my dad when elk hunting I only had to watch him pack everything up as he put it on halfway across the country. I just went "Ewwwww...elk pee!" and I didn't have to smell it. ;)

Hope Mr. Daddy bags a big one!

Joy Graham said...

O.M.G.(our eight year old daughter) Olivia M. G. was looking over my shoulder when I read this post...She yelled EWWWWW!!!!Hunters really put THAT on them!!!EWWWWWWwwww!!!Gag, Gag....

She lives up to her name...OMG!

I just love your blog! You really need a talk show! Blessings-Joy
