Monkey Bread Recipe

a few of you asked me what Monkey Bread was when i mentioned it in this post so i thought i'd share the recipe on the blog. i've had monkey bread a variety of ways but my husbands version is the best!

canned biscuits {Pillsbury is great!}
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon water

bring the brown sugar, butter & water to a light boil and boil for 3 1/2 minutes
pour mixture into a pie pan 
separate biscuits and place on top of the brown sugar mixture in the pie pan {you may need two pie pans if using all biscuits in the can, if so, divide the brown sugar mixture in half as well}
bake in the oven according to the baking instructs on the biscuit pan.

Valentine's Day is one of my most favorite holidays. This year is especially awesome because it's mine and Huck's first {see our Valentine getaway here}. i used to really enjoy Valentine's on my own, watching the movie...

not that one needs to have a date but if you are wanting one this Valentines Day? here are a few pickup lines that are sure to work {insert winky face here}!

lately, my sleeping has been cut short by Yappy Puppy who thinks 5 hours of sleep is enough for one night. now, you may think it is but that is painful for someone who normally sleep 8 to 10 hours.
...don't hate me.
in this season of my life i am taking full advantage of sleep since i will not be getting much once we start having kids. i tell ya, this puppy is great practice for a baby! i chase him around all day making sure he doesn't pee or poop in the house, trade the coffee table/side of the couch/dining chair legs/socks for the toys he is aloud to chew on & yesterday when i sat down at the computer, i rested my head in my left hand and began to smell poop...ya, totally had a "is that chocolate or poop(1)" moment. hint: it was not chocolate!
i tell ya, we almost had a puppy for sale until i discovered peanut butter... keeps.him.busy.for.hours!

in other news...

i just skimmed an article on Google news entitled 50 Shades Of Awkward: 5 Ways To Avoid Embarrassment At The Theater... i feel like if you need a guide to avoid embarrassment from seeing a movie, you probably shouldn't be seeing the movie. you have natural {God-given} warning signals that are built into you that are to help you discern what's good for you and what's not. embarrassment is a form of shame and if you feel that... DANGER! DANGER WILL ROBINSON! this is about the only good thing to come from this nonsense!

raise your hand if you wish Kanye would just shut up already! p.s. Kim, way to respectfully disagree with your husband by your facial expression during his ridiculously confusing rant. kids, find another role model!

i am loving these hand lettering tips from the ABM blog. i am horrible when it comes to writing all cute-like so this is great!

4 Things Every Husband Needs To Hear Daily and i would add "i respect you" to the top of the list, making it 5 things he needs to hear.

...and i know i already posted this on the book of faces, but i just discovered these ladies and i think they are just hilarious!

...and oh. so so SO excited for this!

1. Baby Mama reference


Baby Bear

Huck has been wanting a puppy.

kerri has been wanting a puppy too but didn't think now was the time to get a puppy {plus, huck & kerri already have a dog... and a horse!}.

huck & kerri have been having some... strong times of fellowship about purchasing a puppy.

kerri: "no, we already have a dog & i'd be the one taking care of him while you're at work and we're going to try for a baby at the end of the year {oops! spoiler alert!} and that's double the hair i'll have to vacuum up and double the cost of food and double the poop i'll have to scoop and..."

...the list goes on & on.

well guess who was the first one to ran up to the cage of puppies that were being sold outside of Sportsman's Warehouse last Sunday? THIS GIRL! you can see, we got a puppy.
everyone! meet Bear, the little stinker! he's a purebred German Shepherd AKA the best dogs in the world!
look at those paws! we've got a big boy on our hands! 
Gunner is doing really well with him. at first she was like "i don't know about this newb, he makes a lot of noise & bites my tail". she's fine with him now and lets him jump all over her. they run around and play.
oh man! did i forget what it was like to have a puppy in the house. Spot Shot should sponsor my blog because i've used so much of their product in the last couple days and earplugs help with the "yip" "yip" "yip" sleepless nights.

"you pee pee outside, not inside, Bear!" 

"don't chew on the coffee table!"


"stop trying to eat my cell phone!"

...i feel like the scene in Turner & Hooch... "THIS IS NOT YOUR ROOM!"

oh man, & his farts are the worst! 

But the best part is when he falls asleep. he becomes this little limp noodle and i can pick him up and cuddle him till my hearts content. 

i love this little turd!
xoxo, kerri


Our Valentine Weekend

this past weekend, Huck & i celebrated valentine's day since he will be at work on the 14th. we went up to Jackson Hole, WY & walked around the cute little shops & ate great food! here, i ate the most amazing steak & garlic mashed potatoes of my life! oh baby!
 Paper & Grace had some pretty great stationary & i was in love with this little bottle of matches. it was $15 so i settled for a picture of it. lol
we stopped in Atelier Ortega for the most amazing pieces of chocolate cake, ever!
Huck had the awesome idea to take me to see the elk refuge. it was amazing! being in the middle of over 6,000 elk was so crazy! i took so many pictures of them but this was one of my favorites! i love the two big guys in front who are playing. so cute! haha
it was the perfect weekend getaway! thank you babe!

xoxo, kerri

p.s. sorry i didn't get some fun pictures of the town. i snapped a few but none of them were good {insert "oops" face here}. next time!


Wifey Life | Anthropologie Edition

Husbands have no idea that wives buy things that are designed for use but will only be used for show.

example, Huck was baking me monkey bread in the oven, as one does, and he realized he needed to get it out sooner than he expected. he grabbed the tea towel hanging on the oven and attempted to use it to extract the monkey bread. then i hear, "uhhh babe! ... i just set your oven towel on fire!" i responded with a subtle {not so subtle} "WHAT?!? you set my Anthropologie Holly Jolly Christmas tea towel on fire?!?!?!" he began to explain & i began to cry & die a little inside listen understandingly. he was so cute and apologetic. i then informed him that that towel was for decoration only. he shot back with "that makes no sense, why would you put something out that you can't use, that's like wiping before you poop!" i told him women buy some things for looks & not for use. he found that to be very confusing.
unfortunately,  Huck had no idea that particular holiday tea towel had the embroidery backing paper still attached resulting in a small yet containable fire. oops! i forgave him & buried my scorched tea towel in the yard & i could swear i heard the sound of taps being played... just kidding, that last part didn't happen, except the forgiving Huck part, that really did happen.

moral of the story, all newly married men should be informed that their wives will purchase items that are only for show & not to be used. 
hey, wanna hear another story involving more violence towards Anthropologie home decor? well fasten your seat belts.  

twas the night before Christmas Eve & all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Huck and Kerrin were sitting by the tree, ...and the rest of the story will not continue in a rhyme. we were sitting by the tree because we had agreed to give each other one gift early. Huck handed me a small box, inside was an Anthropologie letter T Christmas ornament. I had been collecting a new letter each year and i already had a K so we needed a T. i excitedly grabbed the K from the side of the tree where is was hanging and hung the T & K next to each other on the bottom of the tree near where we were sitting so i could admire them. forgetting where i left them, we went out, somewhere, i forget where but when we got home and walked into the front room, i noticed random pieces of felt all over the place. i couldn't figure out what it was from until i remembered... ahhh my ornaments are made of felt! i quickly looked at the tree where our T & K were hanging, only they weren't hanging there anymore. then our fur-baby walked into the room & i put two & two together! yes, Gunner had eaten our ornaments! i could have literally killed her, i was so mad!

moral of the story, all Anthropologie items are cursed in this house! 

now, if you are an Anthropologie lover, you feel my pain. these items are like one of a kind, in a sense that they only are available in the store for that season. if you don't purchase what you like when it's available, you have to go hunting all over the internet to see if someone who purchased the item decided to get rid of it & is now selling it... not fun!
