Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

I do this plug from time to time because I'm needy and I like attention and compliments: apparently the internet gods treat you differently when you receive positive podcast reviews. I don't know what happens exactly, for the internet is Satan's realm and we are a righteous people, but I'm supposed to periodically beg you like a man without pride to go to wherever you listen to your podcasts (iTunes? Is that a thing?) and leave Strangerville a review. If all y'all could do the same for The Beehive, and reference Hive Mind specifically, Meg will have another baby this year and name it after all of you.

The SuzzzzzmyRoseomesauslee has a nice ring to it.

So, yeah. Go do that, por favor. Then please enjoy some Pictures & Distractions:
I just found this old picture of Duncan and now I want to go give him so much kisses.

Ollie slept over and then spent the entire morning lying in front of the food bowls, refusing to allow Duncan to eat.

Snuggles with Matt.


A few news outlets did articles on our Provo bachelor event and they all posted photos of me and Meg at angles that basically make the images hate crimes. But at least I found my doppelganger! 

Hannah Gadsby, everyone!

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

Check out our latest Provo Bachelor recap, if you haven't already.

This week on Hive Mind we talked about the worst movies we've ever seen.


Speaking of politics, I wonder if I am now required to disclose to potential clients that I went to the same law school as Mike Lee after this week's spectacle. Thanks, Marissa.

Knitting with plastic shopping bags! Thanks, Brad.

What did I just watch, Sarah?

Learning to sew. Thanks, Anonymous's sister.

  1. So...if someone were to lay in front of my food bowl all morning and kept me from eating...would I then get to snuggle with Matt? Just want to know how this works.

  2. Aw Lee, I miss Lee. Also that is almost the most Utah baby name ever, the only thing that could make it more Utah baby name is to ad Del or La to the front of it.

    1. I was just thinking of Lee the other day! I miss him, too.

  3. I love you and I love Hannah Gadsby. I'm totally down for you two being the same person.

  4. After numerous attempts, I think I have figured out how to correctly pronounce that name. Tell Meg not to be alarmed if her child isn't the only one someday attending BYU or with a passport with that name in it - because who says I won't/can't have another child? (My husband says, my doctor says, my body says, that's who ... but who listens to any of those guys anyway though, amiright?!) The point is, it sounds like the name of a very very happy child, so I like it.

  5. I have been thinking about Leotrix this week. Not sure why.

  6. Bahahahaha I forgot I sent you that video. So when I saw a link asking what you just watched with my name in it I was like “did I send something or is this one of the three billion other Sarahs out there?”

    And I was quite pleased to see what it was. You’re welcome.
