the local spotlight.

in local spotlight

sure am glad you all liked the post about my bad dogs. i just got home from the gym and guess what? guess WHAT?


i had a big tupperware of chili out to thaw. apparently they somehow got it off the counter–it was even tucked away, but randy is apparently super crafty because the chili is gone and both dogs have chili breath.. and their ears reek of chili. oh, and they don’t even care that they ate mine and marshall’s dinner.

jerks. jerks in chili comas.

okay, so a few thursday things:

  • i forgot my camera at home today, but it didn’t matter.. there was nothing to take photos of. same ol’, same ol’ here in meals & moves land. banana, egg whites, oats, goat cheese stuffed chicken, asparagus, clementines.. and then dinner WAS going to be chili and cornbread.. but now i guess we will eat worms.
  • my whole body is sore from four days of phase 3 on jamie eason’s livefit trainer… i can barely move.
  • i must be really tired, because i overslept today.. logging NINE hours of sleep last night. glorious.
  • it’s national chocolate brownie day! i am making brownies for marshall tonight. they are his favorite. he is my favorite. it makes sense. i guess maybe we can have those for dinner instead of worms.
  • i really need to unplug. i have spent way too many hours online lately, working on various projects. i am getting a lot done and i am really excited to be able to share it all with you soon, but for now.. i need to get the hell off the computer.

instead of reading my blog, go read these two blogs! time for another installment of the local spotlight, featuring utah bloggers.. but you don’t have to live in utah to enjoy these lovely blogs.

What the heck is up with your dogs eating your food lately? Crazy puppies!

Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats December 8, 2011 at 7:25 pm

Hopefully brownies will turn the evening around! :) xo.

Jillian @ Sprinkle Massacre December 8, 2011 at 7:27 pm

A. I read your dog story yesterday and was dying laugh. Joe asked what I was laughing at and I couldn’t get the story across as funny as you did, so he thought I was crazy. Ha…
B. I am also VERY sore, as well, from Jamie Eason. I’m loving it, STILL!
and C. National chocolate brownie day…okay, now I really need to go eat that chocolate vitatop I was craving. That counts, right?

Brittany December 8, 2011 at 7:30 pm

I have to wonder, are you feeding Penny and Randy? ;) In all seriousness, I bet they are going to be super gassy from all that chilli.

Jessica @ Stylish Stealthy and Healthy December 8, 2011 at 7:33 pm

I just tweeted about how when my dog is chewing yet hasn’t been fed recently I get extremely nervous. Also I’m missing like 4 hair ties…. curious.

Lauren @ What Lauren Likes December 8, 2011 at 7:35 pm

Woah! Crafty dogs! Hahah :)

Betty December 8, 2011 at 7:37 pm

I just really wanna see handy randy maneuver his short legged long body to get these items off the countertop. When yogi steals whole pizzas and ranch burgers, I understand, because he stands as tall as me on his hind legs.. But randy, i cant see’ve got yourself a very smart pooch!

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) December 8, 2011 at 7:50 pm

Brownies are the dinner of champions. Enjoy your night!

Tiffany @ Snack Snark Bark December 8, 2011 at 9:05 pm

The dogs are out control!!! I hope they don’t have chili runs, ew, good luck!

Amanda December 8, 2011 at 9:24 pm

They totally are in “chili coma”- look at those faces!

Ashley B December 8, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Uhh, time to lock that dogs in a utility room or crates! I hope they don’t get sick.

Heather (Heather's Dish) December 8, 2011 at 9:44 pm

dude, i do NOT understand how dogs (especially shorter ones like yours – mine are really tall) get to food when it’s hidden! mine haven’t ever done that but my friend amy’s dog has eaten cookies that were tucked WAAAAAAY back in the corner and in a freaking tupperware. how does that even happen?!

momma b. December 8, 2011 at 9:57 pm

Oh you’re killing me…….i’m another 5a years younger tonight!!
Love you sweetie!!

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish December 9, 2011 at 12:17 am

Penny and Randy may have to embark on their own weight loss program after the shenanigans that have gone down this week! ;-p Your skepticism about the Full Bar diet claims definitely apply to them: major calorie increase! Haha

Meg December 9, 2011 at 5:03 am

Oh hun, I love your blog – you ALWAYS make me smile, but more often laugh :) I love your sense of humor <3

Hope @ With A Side Of Hope December 9, 2011 at 5:50 am

Oh my gosh! I can’t believe they ate your chili too! Hungry pups! :)

Tamara December 9, 2011 at 7:23 am

Seriously!?! Those dogs are the sneakiest!

Felicia (Natural + Balanced) December 9, 2011 at 7:36 am

crazy dogs! you should thaw stuff in the sink. but i mean, i wouldn’t be surprised if they jump in there too.. hahaha

Lee December 9, 2011 at 9:02 am

Those dogs must think they are people and need to eat people food. I cannot believe they ate your dinner, a day after your post about the full bars.

kara December 9, 2011 at 9:16 am

hahaha.. are you not feeding them enough?? i’ve had to cut down on my cat’s food because he is getting too big for a one year old, and he is now even worse when i’m eating.. he basically sticks his face in my food, or sits under me looking up pathetically. at least he can’t open stuff.. yet.

Annette@EnjoyYourHealthyLife December 9, 2011 at 9:55 am

Ah HAH. Now I see it–so sad about your doggies :(

I LOVE Ashley’s blog–she’s great!! I worked at the same gym as her when I lived in UT too. SHe’s a sweetie and knows her stuff!

Sarah@The Flying ONION December 9, 2011 at 10:17 am

Crazy dogs! I guess they know a good meal when they see (smell!) one. It’s a good thing they’re cute. ;)

Five things I could not bare to live without: Burts Bee’s lip balm, morning coffee, running sneakers, hair ties, yogurt!

natasha December 9, 2011 at 2:07 pm

clearly, Penny and Randy are bored since they can’t go out in the yard thus the pilfering of your dinner?!?!?!

Hope you can get that fence fixed soon so you won’t have to eat worms and brownies (:

Stephanie December 9, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Sounds like those two pooches need some crate time while ya’all are away. Too sneaky!
