The Post Where I Found a Pig

So, Christmas is over. I never really got into the Christmas spirit this year. No family plus no time off of work plus 80 degree weather equals any other weekend where I binge eat and drink. I had a nice weekend and all, it just didn’t seem like Christmas. I’m already making plans to enjoy next Christmas by eliminating some stress. I hearby declare Christmas 2012 “Year of the Gift Card.” If I buy you a gift, expect one of those. No one is excluded.

By the way, that’s still the same Macaroni Grill gift card that hubs and I tried to use but failed. Is there a rule on re-gifting gift cards that look like they were stuck to the bottom of your shoe all night?

Anyway, yesterday at work, everyone decided to notice that my hair is darker. Two people even told me that they barely recognized me, which is interesting because my hair has been this color for over a month. It’s not like I was seeing these people for the first time or  suddenly wearing a disguise.

Either way, not people you want to be playing Memory with. (Anyone remember that game?)

After work, hubs and I met our trainer for a Crossfit workout.

4 sets of:

  • 50 lunges holding a dumbbell overhead
  • 50 squats holding a PVC pipe overhead
  • 100 jump ropes

That took us about 30 minutes. It was a little easy compared to his other workouts but I didn’t really mind since I was pretty sore from a workout on Monday.

When we got home, I noticed a gigantic stuffed pig sitting on the curb two houses down. No one was around and he was just laying there all sad and alone. Calling for me.

My GOD I’ve never wanted a stuffed pig so bad. Just look at that face. Our neighbors were trying to figure out who’s pig it was and moved him off the curb so people wouldn’t think he was trash. I guess he had been outside all day and now he’s laying on our neighbor’s lawn with no one to love him. And yes, I have decided that pig is a boy. And if he’s there when I get home tonight, expect to see a stuffed pig photo shoot blog post.

  1. Poor, sad pig! I’d suggest giving him to your bunny, but do bunnies play with toys?*

    Aw that’s so sad haha! Poor piggie.

  3. I love your hair!!! I’m just now noticing too I guess. LOL I have some catching up to do. 🙂 Hope the pig finds a good home!

  4. I would want to rescue that pig too! I am such a sucker for cute inanimate objects in need of a home!!

  5. Aw, poor little piggy.

    That’s kinda scary that no one noticed your hair until now. I say the company needs to spring for some eye exams!

    Hey, you might want to call the number on the back of that gift card. I had one for Macaroni Grill and where I lived at the time didn’t have one. I called to where the nearest one was and found out that I could also use it a Chili’s because they were owned by the same people.

    • Oh, I might do that. I’m not a big fan of Chilis or Olive Garden, but I think they own Bahama Breeze and I don’t mind them. Thanks!

        I just read that you’re “not a fan of olive garden”… who are you anyway? Have you ever actually had their salad or ministrone soup? This makes me sad.
        Oh, and cute pig.

        • I do like their salad. And tiramisu. But I need more than that to like a restaurant. I’m not a fan of soup in general. Soup is a drink. I like to chew. You know, use those teeth that my mama gave me.

  7. HAHA. Nothing is more annoying than people noticing a rather significant change a month later. What kind of heartless fool would throw that cute pig out?

    I remember Memory! I played it with my sisters growing up. 🙂 And I don’t think I have told you yet, but I LOVE your hair. LOVE IT.

  9. Aww, what a cute little piggy.
    I didn’t really get into the Christmas spirit this year either, and I hung with family and have two weeks off work. I’m not sure what my prob is, but last year I was all “I’m going to watch every Christmas movie, listen to every Christmas song, bake cookies for a week, enjoy every holiday moment” and this year I was like “meh, I did all that last year.”

    I forgot to tell you yesterday that I love your hair! I have been contemplating going dark for a while, but I’m such a chicken.

    • Do it! You only live once. And once you do, we can Photoshop a picture of us together and tell everyone were twins. Only you look like Kate Hudson and I…do not. 🙂
