Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

Wade and I are running a half marathon in Salt Lake on Saturday morning so to prepare we are eating a very large bag of Swedish Fish with Rebecca tonight (Thursday). Good friends sign up for endurance events with you. Best friends over-feed you candy right before those events happen.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:

I've been sending threatening pictures from Annie's office, demanding that she return from maternity leave because it has been going on for an eternity or I'll destroy all of her things. Also I got new glasses. Hashtag selfie.

It snowed for 24 hours in Salt Lake City yesterday. When I got to work I found a snowball in my pocket. I'm not sure exactly how this happened. 

My poor trees. 

I posted this picture of this ironwood carving from Palau on the Instagrams. My friend Corey then texted me to tell me that this picture looks like the carving is sitting on the floor and is gigantic. Then @liveviaashley commented that it looked like "a large chocolate house . . . left in [my] doorway." I don't know. But I feel like this should be the new black/gold/blue/white dress picture.

Stranger Picture of the Week

After our conversation last week, Isabella is wondering whether any of you can tell her how to work this contraption.
Spotted at a swap and shop by Lee S.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

So I guess Star Wars is still happening. Thanks, Lee.

Your daily dose of strange. Thanks, Brian.

Your worst nightmare. Thanks, Jen.

Goths raving to Thomas the Tank Engine. Thanks, Francie.

Shoulder chickens. Thanks, Lindsey.

If you are in a shell. Thanks, Marilyn.

My newest shoes. Thanks, Amanda.

Burger King hates us. Thanks, Heather.

If this doesn't make you want to go to Sizzler THEN I GUESS THERE'S NO POINT IN TRYING ANYMORE. Thanks, Krishelle.

National parks bucket list. Thanks, Tyler.

Please follow us on Facebook and InstaGLAM. I hate myself for saying that.

~It Just Gets Stranger


  1. I hope the cat Head post came from Jen L. From Canada ��

  2. That sizzler commercial was the best part of my whole day!!

  3. No, not you too! My brother shows me that stupid "Don't hug me in scared" video MULTIPLE TIMES DAILY.

    Also, the rave video looks like it's just your average community-education rave class, and you dress according to the level of experience you have.

    1. Agreed, I can't stand those video's. It's like someone did some serious drugs before they started making these. They're so warped.

  4. We watch that Sizzler commercial daily over here. Are Sizzlers even around anymore?

  5. I just spent half an hour watching all of those "Don't touch me I'm scared" videos, and now I'm questioning my life choices.

  6. That girl licking her lips at about 2:17 in the sizzler commercial... I'm crying.

  7. OK the forced perspective in the photo of the carving does make it look like it is sitting on the floor by your door, until you scroll down far enough to see that the base is resting on the desk. Also, it does look like it's made out of chocolate, now I want chocolate, thanks a lot.

    1. I thought the same thing. Looked at first like it was huge.

      Also...Star Wars=Awesome.'re welcome everyone. :)

    2. Now y'all must watch this video, as it sums up all Star Wars fans' reactions, McConaughey-style:


    3. Mmmmmm - Chocolate . . . . .

    4. LOL, that was a good one Liz. People with spare time on their hands and what they come up with.

  8. That not-chocolate thing on your desk is making me want all the chocolate.

    Also, love the glasses!

  9. I think the guy in the shell/introvert video is from Glee... am I crazy?

    1. That is indeed Harry Shum Jr. from Glee. (Not that we know what Glee is, Eli!)

  10. I've now learned that Sizzler means freedom, staring off into the distance, and hitting a home run on your t-ball team. Because Sizzler is reasonably priced freedom. Hashtag: the sizzler life.

  11. Your hand in that picture with the snow totally looks like Wallace's. You know, Wallace and Grommit. Very uniform fingers you have there. And this is probably the most random thing I've ever typed, so there's that.

  12. I love how the Sizzler freedom line segues into the Navy guy. So patriotic, Sizzler. Well done.
