in random rambles

while lately i have been pretty bad at blogging, i have been awesome at instagramming! instagram is an iphone app that is just photos. if you have instagram, let’s be friends! my handle is simply “janetha”.

here are a few shots as of late.


penny wanting some of my frozen yogurt..


penny getting some of my frozen yogurt..


three cheers for iced coffee season! (p.s. did anyone catch the pioneer woman’s post on making coffee concentrate? yessss.)


penny is trying to steal my husband. i keep telling her that marshall is her dad. she won’t listen.


all three.. zonked out.. snoring their faces off.


random tattooing at 2 AM on saturday.IMG_1172

it’s a pointer dog. on his pointer finger! hilarious.


wordfeud.. 306 points in one word! i think i will win this one.


we took penny + randy to the park yesterday for a birthday party. randy was SO happy that we invited him along. 


i am strictly a spectator when it comes to sports. (i have no coordination at all.)


penny is a spectator, too, when marshall is the one playing. she never takes her eyes off him.


sweet sun shot.


randy wanted to do insanity with me. 


this morning. they always watch me get ready for work. quality time. IMG_1198

that’s all for now! be back later with a real post.. maybe.

Qs because they are fun~

1. favorite summer beverage?

2. if you had to give up television or music for the rest of your life, which would you pick? and for the sake of this question, let’s pretend you can’t listen to music via TV.

3. what’s for dinner tonight?

I sorta wish they had Instagram for Droids! That tattoo is hilarious- quite the funny husband you have. :) I think I’d give up TV. I’m not a HUGE music person, but I think I’d probably go insane if I couldn’t listen to music on my commute home.

Janetha June 13, 2011 at 11:56 am

Ohh–it’s not on Marshall. It’s on another dude.

Gavi @ Gavi Gets Going! June 13, 2011 at 11:59 am

I love your photos–they’re so beautiful! Thanks for answering the tattoo question, too–I also thought it was Marshall’s tat!

1. Sangria. Hands-down my favorite summer beverage.
2. I’d pick music. I don’t even have a TV.
3. Vegan platter of black beans, summer squash, sweet potato, and corn. Yummy!

Have a great week!

Erica June 13, 2011 at 12:03 pm

I downloaded the instagram app but haven’t signed up yet! I will let you know when I stop being lazy and finally sign up ;). Cute pics. Love seeing the puppers. Favorite summer beverage??? hmmmm outside the usual water- protein smoothies or iced americanos. nom nom.

Felicia (Natural + Balanced) June 13, 2011 at 12:04 pm

306 points in one word?!!? holy freaking crap. im impressed! favorite summer beverage is water with fresh lemon juice + lemon slices, and mint leaves! aka virgin mojito :) and of course, iced coffee. and real mojitos.. haha :) dinner tonight is ground turkey + marinara + spaghetti squash, and a kale salad massaged with tahini/hummus/nut yeast dressing !

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:29 am

Once I scored 1248 points in one word against my mom. It was epic.

Emily June 13, 2011 at 12:04 pm

1. Iced tea and spicy mojitos
2. I’d give up TV, easy decision!
3. There is a cooking shrimp and grits casserole I’ve been wanting to try…thinking about it for dinner tonight…
Have a great Monday!

mary (what's cookin' with mary) June 13, 2011 at 12:09 pm

1) Fav summer drink right now:

2)I’d give up TV for sure… no questions asked.

3)Dinner tonight is leftover enchiladas I need to post about that I enjoyed with my fav summer drink! I’m excited.

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:30 am

That sounds like an amazing drink, Mary!

Christin@purplebirdblog June 13, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Love these pics… especially the tattoo!! So badass :)

jennifer June 13, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Love the pics! Favorite summer beverage, i would have to go with a nice cold coke (my vice….i have cut down on sodas big time maybe one once a week). I would definitely give up TV, i can’t go a day without music. that’s my life!

Meg June 13, 2011 at 12:22 pm

Ah, I’m glad I’m not the only one who is sports handicapped.
Favorite summer beverage: pina coladas for sure
I could gladly give up tv before I gave up music!

Carbzilla June 13, 2011 at 12:34 pm

I’ll have to remember what my Instagram user name is and find you!

Missy June 13, 2011 at 12:41 pm

You know I’m an Instagram fool! But at least you post cool stuff, I’m just random.
1) Cherry lemonade and of course, iced tea

2) TV I could give up – I basically don’t watch much now. Music? No way! I have to have it to work out with!

3) No clue on dinner

Hope June 13, 2011 at 12:54 pm

I love the pictures! :)

My favorite summer drink is either green tea or a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat ale. :)

Hmm..that is a really difficult question. I would have to say tv.

I am having leftovers from the other night. Yay for dinner already being cooked! :)

Kristina @ spabettie June 13, 2011 at 12:59 pm

I would keep music, absolutely most definitely.

these photos are all great, you know I love the pup ones. Basil tries to make out with Jason all the time – totally movin’ in on my man. ;)

Holly @ The Runny Egg June 13, 2011 at 1:08 pm

I just love your dogs. They crack me up!

Summer beverage – beer or lemonade.

I’d give up TV — I need music in my car and definitely at work. I’d go nuts without it.

Dinner tonight — my sister is cooking for us, no clue!

Carey @ Positively Blonde June 13, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Love these questions!
Fav summer drink? beer
Give up TV or music? By the looks of everyone else’s answers, I think I’m one of the few who would give up music! I love the background noise of the TV :)
Dinner for tonight? probably leftovers. Very ambitious hehe

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga June 13, 2011 at 1:22 pm

I love the instangrammed pics!

I need to download it and try it. Honestly just dont use my iphone for pics that much and bring my rebel with me everywhere and just use lightroom on everything but i really need to try I.Gram

And you know you’re a full on tattoo lover when tattoos become a random 2am activity…not something planned for months or years :)

fittingbackin June 13, 2011 at 1:41 pm

love the pup picks! The one of you two in the sun is awesome – they look like 8mm/dreamy – very cool. THe tattoo is awesome! I get it and love it!

I would have to give up TV… I guess that’s how much I know life without music would just suck. I mean really – it’s so much better for the soul than TV!

sarah (sarah learns) June 13, 2011 at 2:07 pm

awww, i love your pups! they both have such expressive little faces! :)

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:40 am

Haha at first I thought that said ‘expensive’ and did a double take.. although they are quite expensive buggers at times ;)

sarah (sarah learns) June 14, 2011 at 11:49 am

haha, oh i hear ya! last month i spent more on treats/toys/etc for capone than i did on myself! geeez.

dana @ my little celebration June 13, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Oohhh, favorite summer beverage – probably a cherry limeade or a frozen margarita. But, if I was forced to, I’d have them in the winter as well :D.

cathyd June 13, 2011 at 2:19 pm

“i am strictly a spectator when it comes to sports. (i have no coordination at all.)” – – > you and me both!!
diet coke
am giving up the tv in a couple weeks; def need my music for working out and running.
no clue – something protein-y thrown on a salad beast.
never heard of this photo thing – thanks for cluing me in!

Paige @ Running Around Normal June 13, 2011 at 2:20 pm

I love Penny!!! The picture and story about her watching Marshall is so, so cute:)

Niamh June 13, 2011 at 2:54 pm

I love your doggies!! Such cute pictures!
My summer beverage of choice: corona with lime or lemon ;)

I would definetly give up television. I couldn’t give up music. No way!!!!

My dinner was (time difference) left over kidney bean and brown rice stir-fry.

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather June 13, 2011 at 3:11 pm

Your dogs are too funny! Dinner tonight = chicken meatballs with peanut sauce and buckwheat. Yummers :)

The Delicate Place June 13, 2011 at 4:49 pm

oh you are not alone in the instagram loving. i’m obsessed! summer beverage of choice is something refreshing like a ginger lime soda water, if i’m drinking then a gin martini with cuke and lime. i would give up tv in favor of music. there’s too much braindrain on the tube now anyway! dinner tonight? hodgepodge ala massaged kale salad with lots of toppings, egg whites and a coconut flour cake to finish with fresh blueberries.

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:41 am

I love your instagrams!

Jillian @ Sprinkle Massacre June 13, 2011 at 4:56 pm

LOVE instagram! It’s so fun and makes pictures from the super bad camera on the iphone look awesome.

Favorite summer beverage? Red Sangria
I would give up TV anyday for music.
Just had sushi!

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:41 am

What’s your handle?

Abby June 13, 2011 at 5:07 pm

Fav summer beverage-Arnold Palmer for sure!

I would give up tv over music any day!

I think dinner tonight is going to be a veggie burger on a bed of salad!

Susan June 13, 2011 at 5:14 pm

I can’t get in to instagram! I think between facebook and twitter I just don’t have room for any more social updates :P

Penny’s intense love for Marshall cracks me up. So does the pointer on the pointer finger. As does a basset hound napping on a yoga mat.

1. Iced tea!
2. Music, hands down.
3. Just ate dinner – I had cinnamon raisin french toast. Yes, for dinner.

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:41 am

You’d give up music?! I thought for sure you would say TV.

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) June 13, 2011 at 5:14 pm

You introduced me to instagram and I’m hooked. I’ve half jokingly said I’d chuck the blog and all the rest of the social media for Instagram as it’s so fun and easy. Love their filters too- more than anything! I wish Hipstamatic and Instagram would have a love-child.

1. Diet coke, what else?
2. I don’t watch tv anyway.
3. Not sure. Maybe a weird one like kobucha, greek yogurt and almonds or something. Derek’s out of town so I can have WHATEVER I want!!

ashley June 13, 2011 at 5:16 pm

I love these pics- what ap is that? I have been obsessed with iced coffee so far this summer- YUM.

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:42 am

Haha ummm, well.. the title and intro says it all! instagram.

Eleah June 13, 2011 at 5:33 pm

I love how obsessed with Marshall Penny is. Adorable! I also like the one of them watching you get ready. I’ll often be doing something and I’ll look over to see my cat sitting somewhere and intently staring at me.

melissa June 13, 2011 at 5:57 pm

I took the SAME picture of my basset on my yoga mat this weekend. :)

Kelly June 13, 2011 at 5:59 pm

That’s a hard one…TV or music! Hum…I guess I would go with giving up TV.

Juliette June 13, 2011 at 6:19 pm

1.) That’s a hard one. It’s not really a drink but slushies are a fav.
2.) For sure I would give up TV. Music is to powerful to the soul.
3.) Dinner? A big ass salad.

Lauren June 13, 2011 at 6:20 pm

That is such a cool tattoo! So obviously Marshall doesn’t seem to be shy with showing his tats but do you have any girl? I am thinking of getting one but I’m so nervous!

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:29 am

Oh that’s not Marshall’s tattoo–it’s our other friend. I don’t like tattoos! I do have one of my dog Mable’s name–she died a few years ago. But that’s it!

Carla in Sydney June 13, 2011 at 6:48 pm

I love those pics! The dogs make me smile every time!
(1) My favourite summer drink is probably ginger ale….or Coke Zero (I have an addiction).
(2) I would give up music….TV is another of my addictions!
(3) We are having beef stew with brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes for dinner tonight. It’s winter here and cold and rainy. I actually made one of your chicken pasta bakes for dinner last night and I am having leftovers for lunch today. It is delish!!

PBJenny June 13, 2011 at 7:02 pm

“quate” — ballin!

I totally forgot that I downloaded instagram a few weeks ago. I fail.

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:28 am

ooo what’s your handle?

Christy June 13, 2011 at 7:04 pm

That tattoo is so awesome. I like it a lot.

BroccoliHut June 13, 2011 at 7:04 pm

Wishing I had an iPhone now, just so I could Instagram.
Favorite summer bev–raspberry iced tea.
I’d give up TV. Music is a vital part of my soul!
For dinner tonight I made Poached Eggs with Sweet Potato Hash!

Pure2raw twins June 13, 2011 at 7:46 pm

oh Teri told us about this app, umm we just might have to do it, sounds fun

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:28 am

If you get it, let me know!

Errign June 13, 2011 at 7:50 pm

I am definitely only a spectator too!
Favorite summer beverage? Frozen sangria and gin & tonic. Or water/iced tea. I think TV. And dinner was pasta topped with morningstar chik’n nuggets with sauce & cheese.

Lauren June 13, 2011 at 8:13 pm

Mm iced coffee! My favorite summer beverage is an iced maple latte with local maple syrup. I have to stop myself from being like 3 at once.
I’d give up TV. I really couldn’t live without music!

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:28 am

iced maple latte?! holy crud, i need one.

Annette@EnjoyYourHealthyLife June 13, 2011 at 8:30 pm

Dinner was salmon, salad, veggies, and hummus. Yumm :) Love the photos!

Cindy June 13, 2011 at 8:45 pm
Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:21 am

The link didn’t work, but I searched ‘owl wallet’ on tillys and OH MY GOSH, both are SO rad!!! i would buy one if i didn’t already have an owl wallet…. except i may have to buy one for backup ;) thanks!

Tiffany @ Simply Shaka June 13, 2011 at 8:53 pm

Yet another reason why I need an iphone. Your pics are great! You better watch out for Penny, she is younger and quite cute. But I think you’ll be fine :)

I love his tat! I would pick music. I gave up my cable a couple of weeks ago and don’t miss it too much (except for Real Housewives of course). Music? I cannot go without.

Emily June 14, 2011 at 9:34 am

I love the intsagram look. And that is a beautiful “sun shot” of you and penny. You should frame it. We had pulled pork for dinner last night. Well, we were supposed to. But I made it in advance on Sunday, you know–to save time. When I checked it Sunday night, it was hard as a rock. NOT pull-able at ALL! I figured maybe it would soften up if I let it sit in the fridge over night, but it was still absolutely solid even after re-heating. So we had sliced pork instead. I was so sad. I guess it TASTED the same, but…not really the same :( Oh well. I guess that kind of fits in with your kitchen klutzes on the next post. We need to go to the dog park. love ya. xoxo

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:19 am

Yes we do! Funny about the pork. I never make pork simply because I am afraid of it getting too tough.

Jenn June 14, 2011 at 10:12 am

You should have put QUATE one block higher for triple word score! I bet you’d get a bajillion points then haha

Jenn June 14, 2011 at 10:13 am

oh nevermind, I can see, I promise

Janetha June 14, 2011 at 11:18 am

Yeah I had to have the E at the end on the starting star or I would have.. bummer!

Lindsay June 14, 2011 at 8:34 pm

1. favorite summer beverage? Please dont think that I am a horrible person, but I LOVE diet coke. I cannot go a summer day without a can of diet coke.

2. if you had to give up television or music for the rest of your life, which would you pick? and for the sake of this question, let’s pretend you can’t listen to music via TV.
I would totally give up music, because I love my TV and I love being able to watch movies and tv shows while i’m home alone in the day.

3. what’s for dinner tonight?
Dinner tonight is reheated lasagna. I am so excited! :D
