Life Lately

Happy Friday!
IMG_1697
I don't know about you but this weekend will be another great one! One big reason is because we have General Conference for our church! If you are like huh, what church? Go here.

Here is a little bit of what has been going down over here at the Sloan residence!
I received a lovely package from Gentri! I won her giveaway here for Mammoth Ivory Earrings awhile ago and actually have had the earrings for a few weeks but FINALLY Instagram'ed them up if you know what I mean! I love them! Wholly Mammoths are pretty much the same thing as elephants and that is my favorite animal so match made in heaven!
First take a look at the cute packaging! Brown packaging, floral packaging, amazing earrings inside!
And there I am in an awkward self shot. How do you take good pictures of yourself with iPhones? I still don't know, obviously!
And the stationary, darling! Compliments of isavirtue here.

Beware...not for the faint of heart!
I was minding my own business after work walking down the hallway and bam, there is a little mouse hiding in the carpet (below left)! I take about 100 photos, each one a little closer...and then somehow magically scare him/her into the bathroom nearby! I didn't know how to kill it, well I didn't want to think about doing it, so I just trapped it. I told my brother Hunter. He tore off some sticky label for some Lego set he had just bought and slid it under the door sticky side up. Surprisingly you can kill a mouse with Lego packaging! It died...and there was a little bit of blood. Sorry...but mice are not okay in the house!  It was so sad and it was SO cute!
{Next day I found another dead mouse by a poison trap we set...lying just like the one to the right below :( I definitely screamed, a little.}

And here we have some shots from a cold front a week ago...it was rainy so I put Katinka into her ugly/cute teddy bear sweater and took her out...isn't Colorado gorgeous?

And here are some random pictures. Awful collage I know!

Top- L to R: CU vs. CSU game in Denver, Colorado (here), solar paneled dancing sumo wrestler in my office! He will not stop dancing ha!
Bottom- L to R: Just a P90X shot before doing Core Synergistics!, fruit salad I made last night which was amazing! Comprised of: strawberries, raspberries, grapes, bananas, yogurt, and coconut!

Anyone have any fun plans for this weekend?

  3. We have had a mouse issue this last year. I hated it. For now, it's taken care of. Let's hope it stays that way. I'm so glad you like your earrings!! It was really hard to send all those prizes off. I really wanted to keep them. Haha!

  4. Yay for Gentri's blog! I just signed up for the pen pal swap. I'm sooo excited. Ew about the mouse. That's not fun. I had to drown some one time because they got stuck on a glue trap. I was ruined for life after that.

  6. Oh my gosh! You were so brave to trap that mouse in the bathroom! I would have run the other way! I can't believe Lego packaging can kill a mouse...an odd fact that I hope I'll never have to use! :)
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  16. I love animals but animals are only allowed in the house by invitation!! I totally understand getting those mice outta your house!!!! We had a mouse problem a couple of years ago and we found out that they were eating my dog's dried food from her food bowl! We caught the naughty mice in traps, moved the food and haven't had a problem since. Wondered if that might be what's happened in your house??
