Awkward & Awesome Thursday


When I catch people looking at my chest
(thinking I had open heart surgery).
When people tell me they find themselves 
looking for bandages/scars from surgery.
When people stare at the incision site on my neck.
No, it's not a hickey--
it's where they ripped a freakin catheter out of my jugular! lol

Seeing a lady walking around the store with fur around her neck.
Oh wait, that wasn't fur, it was a MONKEY!
At least the monkey had a leash and diaper on...
I tried to get a picture for ya'll, but couldn't be discreet enough.
Is it bad that I wanted to monkeynap him and take him home with me?
I've always thought it would be cool to have a pet monkey.

When did "Alaskan Native" become a race?
Does that mean my race is Oklahoman Native...?
I think I'll stick with Caucasian. ha ha


Our new 2 month old foster baby (we'll call her C).
We picked her up from the hospital last night,
weighing in at a whopping 4 pounds!
She was born, weighing about a pound and a half, at 29 weeks.
She is precious, but soooo tiny...

All of my new followers!
Ya'll are great!
If I haven't made it over to your blog yet,
I promise I will soon (I've been a little busy with C).

My only "official" male follower.
Love you, Brian!
You better keep reading and giving feedback!

Christmas is only a few days away!!
That means, soon, ya'll will get to see what's in that little blue bag from Tiffany's.

Until next time, 
The Intelligent Blonde


  1. Oh what!? I want a pet monkey! Kind of like Marcel on Friends :) ♥

  2. Kristine--that's EXACTLY what I thought of when I saw it! I'm a Friends junkie. ha ha

  3. My heart just melted for sweet Baby C!! Aaawwweee! 4 pounds!

    And as for people staring at your chest... maybe they like your boobies? hehehe totally jk....


  4. Ash-she is so stinkin tiny! Everyone is scared to hold her. lol. I kinda wondered that myself...maybe they used that as an excuse? haha

  5. Just wanted to swing by and wish you a Merry Christmas! So glad we stumbled across one another in the blog world :)

  6. Thank you, Katie! I'm glad we found each other, too!

  7. Hope all of you have a very merry Christmas!

  8. A monkey?! I thought that only happened onTV! I can't imagine a baby that son was 9 lbs the day he was born! Have a great Christmas girl!!!

  9. Miranda--I was shocked to see the monkey too! Just imagine a baby half the size of him. She's like a baby doll. lol. Hope you have a great Christmas!

  10. alaskan native... this is the first time i've heard of that. that is indeed awkward!

    <3, Mimi

  11. Oh she sounds like a precious little nugget!
    & I probably wouldn't have been able to control myself if I saw a lady walking around with a monkey on her neck! There would have been definite NON discrete picture taking;)

    Merry Christmas, I hope Santa is is good to everyone at your house:)
