I hope you all had a merry Christmas! Or if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great four days since I was last around these here parts! I thought I'd keep things light and jolly with another edition of Stuff Michael Says, because there have been some gems lately (at least since the last edition, which was way back at the beginning of September!).
Remember how I mentioned Michael's insane case of baby fever? See exhibits A and B.
I showed Michael a picture of a cute kid (probably from a blog or a blogger's Instagram, I'm guessing).
Michael: "See, don't you want one?! It'd be so good for your blog. Just imagine, 'Stuff ______ says!'" (He used the boy baby name we've had picked out for like two years...I almost posted it but I'm nervous about advertising it and jinxing it. Obviously I wouldn't care if someone who reads this blog named their kid that...it wouldn't stop me from using the name...and no one that I know reads this aside from my mom who is done having children...but I guess I'm just superstitious and feel like if I don't say it at all, then no one we know will steal it. Even if I don't say it to them. Does that make any sense? No? Well, I can be irrational sometimes.)
Hitting me below the belt--with free blog content! Just kidding. ;)
He also texted me this gem last week.
Marlowe = Michael's cousin's baby that I got matched up with for Secret Santa (score!). I bought her super cute leggings and shirts and a BABY-SIZED PUFFER VEST from Old Navy. *Also sorry for the language that I just noticed.
"What if my nipples were on my butt?" Don't ask. I remember we were driving to my parents' house...but I don't remember the context. Honestly, I don't think there was any. Who needs context, right? These kind of thoughts are normal to come up with out of nowhere...
Sometimes you just have to put chocolate milk on your cereal, am I right? (Okay, I've never done that.) For some reason this cracked me up when he sent it to me. Oh, I remember now...because the cereal he was eating was chocolate Chex. With chocolate milk. This from the guy who claims he's allergic to chocolate. Confused? Me too.
You know that movie The Revenant with Leo DiCaprio and the bear? (Side note: Did anyone else see the trailer for Into The Grizzly Maze--which looks horrible in my opinion, and has a 36% rating on Rotten Tomatoes--and then hear Oscar buzz for Leo about a bear movie and think they were the same thing and get really confused? No? Just me?) Anyway, a preview for the Oscar buzz bear movie, not the horrible one, came on.
Me: "Is this movie set in Alaska?"
Michael: "No, the U.S."
Michael: "No, the U.S."
I started to tease him so hard about that one. He gave me two excuses: 1. It's the continental U.S.! 2. Alaska wasn't a state back in the time this was set.
Mhmm, suuuure. ;)
Michael waited until the very last minute to buy gifts for his groomsmen. He kept looking on Etsy, but everything was really expensive or would take like four weeks. There were a bunch of personalized pocket knives on there, and in one case, hatchets. So he found some hatchets from a hardware store online, and bought an embossing kit from Amazon and personalized the leather sheaths himself.
Michael: "It's a sportsman's hatchet, that's f***in' cool!"
He is so not burly or outdoorsy or someone who would ever own a hatchet, but he was soo excited about these hatchets. It cracked me up.
