It's Hard To Blog When He Does This
What it’s like to blog with the neediest dog in the world

1 ||  N got home from work last night at almost 11pm. He had been gone since 8am. Now he’s gone again. He will also be working this Saturday and Sunday. He hasn’t complained once and is clearly killin’ it at work because he has already been recommended to be the lead on the project. I’m beyond proud of him. But I miss him, I really do.

2 ||  Recapping Downton Abbey with my male boss was one of the highlights of my week.

3 ||  I have never done a vlog because I’m terrified. I hate how my voice sounds and it feels so weird to be like “hey blog readers, I’m going to do a Q&A! Ask me questions!” Shifty eyes. Crickets. Awk.

4 ||  I think Archie thinks that because he never goes to the bathroom alone, that no one should. I have not gone to the loo alone in a year.

5 ||  I don’t go to the gym and I eat what I want. And because most days I’m fine with my weight, I see no real incentive to go to the gym or diet. I try to remind myself of the long-term health benefits (I want to live to be 100, after all) but that usually isn’t enough to get me to do much more than walk the dog. As I’m writing this I’m polishing off the last bite of an entire box of Kraft Mac and Cheese. You never have to worry about me posting Paleo recipes, I promise.

6 ||  In case you missed it, my word of the year is PIZZA.

7 ||  I have never done an ad sale before. I don’t plan to in the future. BUT if you use the promo code PIZZA, you get 25% off a Saturday Takeover post. Your post will go up Saturday morning and will stay up until I post on Monday (which, let’s face it, is never before 11am because I do not have my shit together). You can hop over to my advertise page and check it out, if you’d like.

  • Number 5 is my life. I know it’s good for me and I know I can do it because I was a competitive cheerleader in high school that never stopped running/working out but now I do absolutely nothing and eat absolutely everything. AND the only reason I’m considering working out is because of my wedding/honeymoon in October and if I do work out, it’ll stop immediately after that I’m sure!

  • Is it bad that Archie reminds me of myself? When my roommate is trying to study, I’m literally in her face going, “PAY ATTENTION TO ME. HELP. I NEED LOVE.”

  • Kate Ann

    Your dog is SO CUTE!!!!!

  • Archie is so adorable! They never seem to have a problem with “interrupting” do they!? My favorite thing is when I close a door and my dogs put their paws under the door or I can hear them sniffing at it.

    I doubt I would ever vlog either for the same reasons you describe. It freaks me out!

  • It’s nice to find another semi-professional adult who truly loves pizza. I could easily eat pizza everyday. Some people, I feel, just eat it when necessary, if that makes sense.

  • #4 is my dog, Prim. If she doesn’t come in with me, she sniffs under the door frame, just to make sure I’m still there.

  • I am so sad he is gone all the time but good for N kicking butt. And yes, the whole box of Mac and Cheese. Check. I am big fan of Annie’s White cheddar though!

    haha i have really been enjoying all the ‘words of the year’ floating around out there. Kind of as a more obtainably resolution but yours is definitely my favourite!

  • Oh my gosh, that picture. Precious.

  • Ola

    I would LOVE for you to do a vlog. But I understand why you’d be scared to – I’ve been putting off setting up a blog because I’m terrified of THAT, so a vlog would be even more nerve shattering.

  • Jessa

    Heisman is the same way.. He thinks he needs to go everywhere we do. It’s fun though. I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s dog tries to put space between me and computer. have a good weekend.

  • Whitney F.

    I love this post and I’m definitely in love with the picture.

  • I rarely do polls because I’m afraid of the awkward crickets… Be sure to stop by my blog today and enter to win a big Stitch Fix giveaway! No? Crickets… 🙂

  • Why do dogs, and young children like to watch us go to the toilet………………it is freaky and why do we get so use to going in front of them………just wondering…………because by we I mean me………

  • Archie and my Johnny Cakes sound like brothers from other mothas. He does the SAME thing when we’re on the computer and if I close the door when I go to the bathroom he whines the entire time. haha

  • Love #5.. mostly because I’m in the same situation! Minus those 10 Christmas pounds that I need to lose.
