it's the little things, right?

Photobucket

this is one of my favorite pictures of sean and i. it was taken back when we were dating. sean doesn't normally wear scarves. that scarf would be mine. but then again sean doesn't normally wear purses but he sometimes likes to wear mine as well? and moo moos. i am starting to sense a pattern here. should i be concerned? oh well, anyway we were bowling with a bunch of friends and i was doing terribly. we were on the 10th frame. in order for me to beat sean by one point, i had to bowl three strikes. or a turkey if you will. guess what? i did it. i honestly think that it was my proudest moment.

one of my more stupid moments was maybe today at lunch when i ran out to the car and it took me 30 seconds to realize that i was not in the drivers seat. i was in the passengers. and i felt like an idiot. because it took me that long to realize what was wrong with the picture. i felt stupid because there were people outside watching me. so what did i do? i crawled into the drivers seat and drove away quickly. oh well. it was kind of cool. that has honestly never happened to me before.

the other night we were lying in bed and i asked sean if he wanted to hear 5 awesome things. and only cool people would get to hear those things and maybe do something about them. i said the first was to bring me a glass of ice water. then, to go let mosey out before bed. then to lock all the doors. then for him to bring me my toothbrush with toothpaste on it. then i couldn't think of anything else. and i was mostly joking, but i did get a glass of ice water out of it and he let mosey out and locked all of the doors, so i guess it kind of worked? i am not usually that demanding, but i think it's partly his fault because he actually did most of the things that i asked. for me? proud moment. but wait, he didn't bring me my toothbrush with toothpaste on it. so maybe i don't know how i feel about that moment. because then i didn't end up brushing my teeth. i think that is his fault though.

i think i was kind of just feeling jealous because lately he keeps grabbing my arm and making me roll up my sleeve just to compare our skin color. like seriously? is he racist or something? jk. but i mean seriously, i get that you are really really really tan sean. and i get that i look like a vampire right now. but still. i told him i think it was just the lighting in the car, and he wasn't actually that tan. also, he had a white shirt on. so that helps. so we decided to see how that portrayed on camera. i dunno, i mean it's not that much of a difference, is it? i just really don't want to have any other freckles cut out of my hand k? maybe if i can get more freckles, they will all blend together and i will actually appear tan... hmm. maybe i will work on that.  it is hard though because he likes to put my arms in between both of his and call it an oreo. how rude. but then that just makes me want an oreo so it usually makes me happy. so i guess i can see the good in that.

i have odd goals. a few weeks ago at work, i overheard a girl that i work with telling her friend that i was the girl who owed the little boy who sells pop and candy at our office like fifty bucks. it's like i was a hero or legend or something. anyway, he is saving money for his mission, and he is only like 12, but at the rate that he is making money off me, he might have that mission paid for by the time he is 15. the problem is that we don't always pay cash when we take things. there is a little I.O.U. chart on the fridge that has some quote about what the definition of honesty is and blah blah blah, i don't know what it says i always ignore it, but anyway, i had quite a few marks on there a few weeks ago. he left a note on the fridge saying he was going to collect actual cash that friday, so i just gave him my paycheck and we called it good. but then he put a new chart up. and the other day i noticed that i was kind of in competition with another guy for the most tally's on the chart. the other day i passed him. i was proud. it's the little things right?

oh, i have to tell you guys about this cool sale. so sean's cousins have this business called the orchid. they sell all natural body products. seriously, this stuff is so awesome. my favorite item is the boyfriend body cream. it smells so good. it sort of has this masculine scent to it. not like old spice or anything, but it really smells like how a boys clean smelling skin smells. wait, that sounds weird. sigh. i don't know. it still smells really feminine too. ughh, this post is getting awkward. you might just have to try it, but i am obsessed with it. anyway, they are revamping their whole entire store right now, so everything in the whole store is 40% off right now if you use the code "facebook". check it out here. they also have a solid shampoo bars, and lots of really neat salt scrubs and bath bubblers. everything is made from natural products. now i won't lie, i am not like an all natural type promoting person, not because i don't want to be. just because i am lazy and have never really thought about it before. but i do have really sensitive, white-vampirish skin, and this stuff never irritates my skin. so i bought like a million jars of it. love it. the end.

p.s. this post is TOTALLY random. WTF? sorry. i'm in a rambling mood tonight. and i changed my layout back to the old one. sorry for all the back and forthness. ugh. i am so indecisive. and i am pretty sure i made up like ten words in the post.

-my boy ALWAYS puts his arm against mine to make me feel sad. and i say "well when I am 70 i will have beautiful skin! and yours will be like leather." lol

<3

leigh ashley said...

i seriously love reading your posts. i laugh so hard... that's a good thing, right? you're too cute!

Rasha said...

First off that picture is like perfect, I love it.

Secondly, I love the whole bossy telling him what to, mainly because I do it all the time to boyfriend so it helps me justify that im not the only one who does things like that.

third, wow you are pretty white, HAHAHAHA!

and I love that you change it so often, keeps things from boring :)

crissy said...

Gah! Cori does that, too. Okay, I get it, you tan better than me, big freakin' deal... why do these boys have to be such show offs?
Also, I'm kind of sad that the pictures are gone. You guys are h-o-t ;)
I love your posts, they always make me smile, and usually make me laugh. You are so awesome :)

Michelle said...

haha I love that you got into the passenger seat and didn't realize it! Whenever I have to unlock my passenger side from the outside, I always take a few seconds too long to figure out how to do it...

{The Huffakers} said...

I feel your pain with the paleness. People ask me if I'm feeling ok. I just don't get sun ok people? Sad thing is I go to Mexico for a week and I'm still paler than everyone else. Lame.

Jenni said...

hahahahaha oh my goodness you are too funny! I was smiling the entire time I was reading this! I do the same thing with spencer. He gets me ice water, lets the dogs out and locks the doors. I hate locking the doors at night because then after crawl in bed I freak out about wether i did lock them and if i remembered to trun off the porch light....its slightly ridiculous at times and I get so paranoid at everything and then im scared some guy is going to be there when I go back to double check everything and he's going to come in the house and im going to scream and then the neighbors will be woken up and the dogs will start barking and ill get so worked up ill drink all my water and have to refill it and then when i finally get settled into bed ill go..."crap...did I remember to lock the back door" and it will an ensue again! So really...its easier for him to just make sure they are locked and i trust him :)

kelly ann said...

i LOVE that picture - you two are seriously the cutest. not even lying. CUTEST. ever.

and don't worry, i live in california, right by the beach, and i'm as white as ever. i really need to get some colour. (considering i'm in a wedding in a few weeks. wearing a short, strapless dress. and every other bridesmaid is 1000x tanner than me. damnnn)

<3 xo

Cailie said...

Probably my favorite post you've ever written! haha I love ramblings.. you bowling a turkey under pressure is amazing! I would totally have a bunch of tally's too.. you should accidently spill something on that chart and make it illegible!

Rhianne said...

Thomas is always more tanned than me and we live in England! How does he do it and yet I stay so pale?? bah.

lol, i love your random, awkward posts :)

Selma said...

Girl, no matter what you write I love it. :) Love the randomness, and the fact that you are as indecisive as I am. ;)
I had to laugh about your tan story and Sean calling it an oreo, so this was my happy moment for today! ;) Haha.

Have a great Thursday girl. Can't type much more because my fingers are hurting. *four books sorta tried to make an oreo sandwich of my hand*...weird description but I'm sure you know what I mean. ;)

xoxo

♥ Katinka said...

haha :) love this post! you are too cute !!!

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

chris is always comparing our skin colors, and as always, i'm whiter than vampires. sometimes i just want to give him a good smack and tell him to leave me alone!

olivia rae said...

hahahaha. too many funny things in one post. getting in the passenger seat and trying to trick sean into doing things for you... hilarious! also, you look gorgeous in that photo! xoxo

Chelsea Robbins said...

you guys are adorable btw.

and you are such a great writer!

Michael and Mindy said...

i think this post was awesome. i love it. and i love, LOVE that picture at the top of you and Sean. duh. that is the only picture, minus the arm one, and i'm not gonna lie...i don't usually get excited and say i love pictures of arms. but maybe sometimes. and i was looking at it thinking "michael would not be caught dead in a scarf" and then you said it was yours and i thought that was cool. not that i'm against guys in scarves, but you know.

also. change your background as much as you want, i say. it looks great. hope you're doing great!

I totally demand things of Dustin just to see if he'll do them. It works about 75% so I'll take it, hehe.

Jennifer said...

Your arms are as pale as mine! But I don't think the freckle theory will play out the way you want it to.

And good jub for single-handedly funding that little boys mission!

Michele said...

Hey can't wait to see you guys this weekend! Just for you Chloe I will try and show up your husband and his tan arms. I will make him be the white part of the Oreo. Us girls have to stick together:)

Elise Halladay said...

White skin is fabulous. I am super white too. Lets all look on the bright side tho: We won't have lots of leathery skin and wrinkles when we get older. Yay for no wrinkles!

CBJ said...

i love this post! so fun!

Becca said...

Chloe girl!
Your rambling is absolutely my favorite- I look forward to all your new posts just because of how you ramble and talk. SO FUNNY! I laugh so hard at you. Love it.

Anna said...

i share your vampire-esque skin. ross is super tan & it makes me crazy! lol.

also- random=awesome. therefore this post=awesome.

hooray!
xoxo

samnhal said...

Vampires unite! Seriously though, I have totally thought about the 1 big freckle thing. I have enough...now if they would just come together I would look super tan. Sigh, Hal is like sean and looks like he is another race during the summer. Maybe he took all of my tanning genes from me...because it doesn't happen much. That's funny, last night at the photo shoot maddie was talking about how she doens't like sweet and I said something about how you post about eating candy all of the time. That's awesome, I totally have a sweet tooth, but the candy part of that isn't here so much anymore, now it's like yummy desserts. mmm, now I want some cookies or a danish or something.

HEY!! I'm so excited about our new puppy too. I totally love the idea of them being boyfriend and girlfriend. I honestly have no idea when she was born. I know she's not pure bred but I don't know what mix she is but she has the most beautiful green eyes. We got her from some people through the newspaper (Brock found it I dunno). Yeah so we totally need a kennel. We're still having a hard time with her cuz if she does go outside, she'll pee right on the concrete. I'm glad she's going outside but I can't keep spraying off my concrete!! She's learned to sit and she does good on a leash when we go on walks. It totally is a crazy/fun experience. Anyways, would love to hear any advice!!

leigh ashley said...

hey... look what i found for you!!

grant + brittany said...

i think about you every day and miss seeing you! its a good thing you have a blog because your posts are always so refreshing to me. love ya:)

grant + brittany said...

man this post makes me miss you... why am i so not motivated to blog lately? can you help me here? i think you should definitely start making money off changing people's blog layouts. seriously who are you? your blog always looks amazing. i like the sound of these products because i too have sensitive skin. so i'll be checking them out. can you tell your mom hi for me? she is so awesome. oh and remember how i was supposed to text you my account info like a year ago? gosh i need to do that. story of my life. sometimes i think if i honestly just took one whole day and didn't stop, i bet i could get everything done off my to do list... but then i see the couch.. the computer... ice cream and the tv? ya. you know how it goes.

Venassa said...

Haha the getting in the passenger side of the car thing is similar to me bringing the milk into the dinning room closet when really I want to put it in the fridge. We all have those moments.

Love the picture of you and Sean at the top.

Alexa Mae said...

i really love that pic of you. you are gorgeous!

and this post is hilarious! you are brilliant...really. love to you!!

my name is lauren. said...

ummmm.....i kind of love you....a LOT. and if you lived nearby we could be pale skinned together. yes... that would be lovely. ALSO...i love that you owe that candy kid so much $. i'd be in the same boat if we had a candy kid, but thankfully (for both my waistline AND my wallet) we don't.

also....that boyfriend body cream sounds incredible. i love boy smells better than girl smells, so i may need to get some STAT!

ok. that's it.

wait....no it's not....

i also wanted to say that i'm sorry i suck at e-mailing back. i promise promise i will this week. i'm taking a little week long hiatus from blogging which should give me more time :).

i LOVE you!!! oh wait...i already said that....but it's still true :).

happy week friend!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

That sounds like a great cream! I'm always on the look out for new lotions and such.

Cute picture!

Caroline said...

I love your posts!!! And that cream sounds perfect!! xo

missy. said...

haha you and sean are awesome. i am so glad that we became blog friends so i can be involved in these random posts.

and don't worry - i am a total vampire. my friend kept calling me whitey the other day. totally embarrassing. time for some sun.

Annie said...
