Friday Mishmash

Is it possible to live on only fruit?  I'm about to find out:
Cherries from Washington, peaches and nectarines from California, watermelon from Texas.

This is what happens when you go to Sam's Club before eating anything.  I might have gotten carried away, but it all looked so good - plus the nectarines and peaches smelled great, so there you have it.  Fruit for every meal!

********************

Jeff turned 60 on Wednesday.  He was out of town teaching, so I sent him a happy birthday text:
Sometimes I can be funny. 

This is what having a six year age difference brings...suddenly I'm married to a 60-year-old man!

********************

Just in case you think I only send strange texts to Jeff, this was my Father's Day text to my dad:

That's right, I channeled my inner Mimi from the Drew Carey show with some crazy Snapchat filter.  I remember my dad roaring at that show - it was so funny.  Wish that one would come to Netflix or Hulu - I'd watch it again.

********************

Finally, sometimes you just get the perfect picture:
I cracked up when I saw this!

From tons of (fake) makeup to no makeup - this was post-run on Saturday, before showering.  We were outside planting flowers when the perfect selfie opportunity with Paco came up - it's one of my favorites with him!

********************

Have a great weekend!

    1. Yeah, most of the time. Not this morning, when Paco walked into the kitchen while I was making coffee and blorped about a gallon of water onto the floor...at least it wasn't on the carpet? Sigh.

  2. I remember feeling exactly that way when Mr. Helen turned 60... and now I'm married to an "official" senior citizen (he qualifies for all the discounts - yay!) who is about to retire. That's next just in case you needed to know.

    I need Snapchat lessons - still don't get it.

    Paco! I swear that picture could win an award.

    1. Oh lordy, an official senior citizen...does Mr. Helen take them? I don't know that Jeff would.

  3. Happy Birthday, Jeff! That text is awesome LOL! I didn't realize you guys weren't the same age (or roughly the same age). I'm 5 years older than Terry, so I guess I'll have stuff like that to look forward to.

    I love that selfie with Paco! You both look so cute and happy :)

    1. Oh man, you need to train Terry well so that he doesn't give you crap like I'm giving Jeff when you suddenly hit that next decade!

  5. I love it when the dog's smile for photos! It looks like the two of you were sharing an inside joke LOL.

    And happy belated birthday to your hubby.

    1. Thanks - I'm sure he was thinking something along the lines of "get out of my camera space, mom" LOL!

  6. Smiling through the whole post. Yes, I get the over-fruiting. Between the grocery store, the strawberry stand, and Costco, I have been hitting the fruit pretty hard lately. Its all so tasty, and it has 0 points, right? :)

    You as Mimi--cracked me up! That was a good show. And Paco, what a great picture of both of you!

    1. Over-fruiting, LOL. I mean, it could be worse. Over-cinnamon-twisting, for example. ;) Zero points - yeah, not gonna go with that, though - I do log the fruit into MFP.

    1. LOL, it's not that old, until you see a ding dang "silver alert" for an "elderly person" and when you read the description, that elderly person is in their 50s! Ugh.

  11. Omg Paco. Hysterical. That dog! For one second I thought there was some sort of filter in that pic too.
    I think he's saying--"Hi bloggy peoples, Paco heer. Mom funny as Mimi, but don't furget me, I bery funny & cute! too. Bemember, I da reazin you come to dis blog."

    I would never have guessed Jeff is 6-0, Anna Nicole.

  12. Happy birthday to Jeff! Haven't done Snapchat here. It seems weird.

    Loving your fruit haul because that's pretty much mine every week LOL! Minus the cherries...

    1. Here's my Snapchat secret: I entertain myself occasionally with the filters, then take a picture, save it to my photos, and text it to certain friends. Because I don't actually know how to work Snapchat...and I don't actually want to learn, LOL.
