Introducing, Shunuhnuhnuhnuh and Mehr!

Yesterday was such an awesome day! Ant and I both have Sundays off, so I got to spend the day with him. We went to El Maguey for lunch, and he bought me sopapillas because I was whining about craving cinnamon rolls. (the kind you get in the tube at the store)

It was delicious, but I am holding Anthony responsible for my gut. 

So... he must like me a lot, because he agreed to go antiquing with me. This is my favorite thing to do. Next time, Smeather Freelman needs to go with us. **hint 

Okay, these cups are creeeeeepy. Do kids actually like drinking out of things like this??

Really?!?! Less tar?!?!?

I bought these two books. I love finding books at antique/thrift stores. I used to read The Bobbsey Twins series as a kid, and now I own like.. five? I'm thrilled. Did you all ever read Beatrix Potter?? My mom always read these books to us. She even made us quilts/window treatments that were Beatrix Potter themed when my sister and I were kids. I think she even made me a jumper out of Peter Rabbit fabric. Let's just say that these books are dear to my heart. I love my mom.

Anthony bought me this super cool candle thing. I don't really know what it is, but it sorta looks like a bunch of mini lanterns hanging down. The tea lights fit perfectly, and I love it. I was gonna buy it, but when we got to the counter he just paid for everything. He's so nice. I put some gas in his car, though, so I'm nice too... right? Haha :)

He also bought me this awesome gum ball machine. We still have to buy gum balls, though. I am stoked!! It's really cool. This picture doesn't do it any justice. Come over to my house and have a gum ball and YOU WILL SEEEEEE!

This was something else that I was supposed to buy, but he butted in and just bought it for me. I have been wanting one of these things for a long time, but they were always too expensive. I think this was $8? It's in really good shape, I think. Now I just need little thimbles and other trinkets to put in it!

So while we were at Wal-Mart looking for gum balls, I ended up in the fish section. SUDDENLY, I WANTED A FISH!!! Ant decided the he wanted a fish, too. So... we went to a pet supply store and got fish!! Anthony got a puffer fish, which is really pretty dumb of him. They require complicated food and water. My fish are easy to take care of, given that they are goldfish. I am smart. He wouldn't let me post the picture that I took of him because he looks creepy. Sorry :( He named his fish Charlie Day. Check out the TV series, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia if you don't know the reference. It's a hilarious show.

I got two fish, because I had two epic names for them. I'd like to introduce you to Shunuhnuhnuhnuh and Mehr.

This is Shunuhnuhnuhnuh.
I have found myself saying, "Shunuhnuhnuhnuh," while walking in slow motion, swinging my arms. I didn't realize why I was doing it until I was watching an episode of The Office and an episode of Scrubs.

Now, combine that with:

And you get:

Oh gosh, that's so embarrassing. But I had to explain the name!!

And now I'd like you to meet Mehr.

It's pronounced:

Aren't they so cute?! They better not die.

I had such a wonderful Sunday. I am very blessed. 

Tonight, I am going over to Amy's for dinner and a movie/whatever. My life is super busy, but I can honestly say that I am happy. It's a nice place to be.

I hope that you all have a wonderful week! 

EDIT: PS- Follow me on twitter! I'm beginning to like twitter. Yay for more social networking. (Lizzery)

I don't know why, but when you said...

"Aren't they so cute? They better not die."

I laughed for like 5 minutes straight, so much so that I was crying. I'm not sure why, but I thought it was hilarious.

They are cute BTW, and I also hope they don't die.

This all cracked me up so much. Anthony. (shaking my head in disbelief)... I have never seen him be so free with his money. What have you done to my brother!? ha ha ha. KID. Love your fish, and their names. It makes complete sense to me that Antho would get the complicated fish. Awesome. Great post.

I LOVE the shadow box, I realllllly want one of those! I love your videos of explanation. I suck at keeping fish alive, like seriously I've killed so many {on accident}

Gale said...

YOU ARE CUTE. YOU ARE SO CUTE! I love people like you who turn sounds into pet names!! lol, Beyond grateful that you posted those two vids of you saying them too. hahah

I'm happy you wrote this post, I was just going to ask alllllll about how you and Ant are doing haha. I'm still giddy about you're friendship turned love<3

Love your thrift finds, especially that gumball machine. Is the glass part a mason jar? I'm a mason jar fiend, so you know how I also feel about your fish jars.

Lastly, I tried to own a puffer fish too once! It was really difficult. But the little thing was so so cute and weeeeird. Goodluck to Ant. Mine died. I'm rooting for his to live:)

Sorry this is ridiculously long!
