one exciting weekend

Oh, did I say "exciting"? I meant to add the {not so} in there. Oops.
Well, since I got you here, you might as well keep reading.

Look who came to visit us over the weekend ... in our tree ... in our yard.
I am in love. Can you see him?
I named him Winston. 
Winston is probably a girl, but that's ok.

Guys, this is just about as exciting as it got for me this weekend.
Other than thinking I was super cool after every tweet that I tweeted and every picture that I instagramed with Instagram ... this is as exciting as it got. And man did I think I was cool. It even got so bad that when husband asked me what the heck Instagram was,  I said "Dan, it's a photo app just for iPhone users" (in my duh Dan voice). And you know what he said?
"Oh Tiff, that's not even your iPhone. It's mine."
"Oh Tiff, you don't even have Internet unless you're sitting at home using free wifi."

Then he proceeded to tell me that I was actually wrong anyways.
I guess there are some other Android people who also have access to this app.

Here's to an awesome week that will most likely be filled with seven
Wendy's vanilla iced coffees for free.
I'm a VIP.
And don't you forget it, Wendy's.


  1. check you out!!!
    tiff getting all tech savvy!!!
    yes, instagram is the only reason i wanted an iPhone :)
    i have twitter, but definitely don't use it...
    and wow, a raccoon??!!
    in your tree??
    i have a healthy fear of wild animals.
    and i'm sure we have tons around here, since i live in the woods.

  2. I love all of the dog pictures! I also tend to show my pups lots of love :) Looks like you had a great weekend!!

  3. is it OK to be jealous that you have a VIP card to Wendys? because i kinda am. but i'm not jealous that you have Winston who is probably a girl.

  4. I've been craving Wendy's all weekend! I keep whining when my hubs asked what I want for dinner, "I just want Wendyyyyyyyy's" Just a super long plane ride away for me. Lucky you!!

  5. Yay, so happy you have instagram! When people ask if I have instagram I say "No, but my dogs do!"

  6. I would be so embarrassed (but not really) if someone looked at my pictures on my phone because about 90% of them are of my two dogs. By the way, my black lab Ace sounds JUST like your dog.

    Also, that raccoon is really cute. I was a weirdo kid when I was little and wanted a pet raccoon.

  7. haha! i have twitter on both my personal phone (droid) and work phone (iPhone)..i still think it's better on the iPhone, annddd should probably have remained an iPhone-only app! free vanilla iced coffees?! jealous!

  8. Haha sounds like my weekend. Well minus the tweets and instagram. I don't do either but our weekend wasn't too exciting. My highlight was taking pictures of the rain. I have a boring post to prove to it. Here's to a more exciting next weekend! ;)

  9. Free is amazing! And you tell that silly Dan that We don't like Indian givers. He gave you the iPhone. Besides possession is 9/10th of the law. :)

  10. Twitter is my favorite workday distraction... mostly because it's so quick. You can scan a few tweets, send one, and back to work before anyone notices.

    I hope the raccoon doesn't get into the trash, tosh it all around, and reunite Sherman of all of the really cool toys he brought home from walks... and that you and Dan so callously threw away.

  11. What an adorable picture of that raccoon! Hi Winston!

  12. This post made me giggle...and that raccoon is too cute. I totally would have named him too! I LOVE Instagram. Get yourself an iPhone :)

  13. your dog really is so cute :) i would love to get one - i really want a whippet or a greyhound!

    please enter my giveaway if you have a moment! http://www.cupcakesncouture.com/2012/07/adjewelry-bracelet-giveaway.html


  14. Hahahaha yay for being VIP!


  15. haha love the VIP. Such an accomplishment :)

    I do a weekly instagram link-up at my blog. If you have a few seconds I'd love for you to link this post! No pressure, I just wanted you to know :)



  16. ummmm I need to become a wendys vip!?

  17. Your weekend was more exciting than mine. I'm jealous of your racoon. Weren't you scared Winston would jump out and eat your face when you got that close to him/her?

    Also... I am jealous of your semi-internetless iPhone. My work only lets us have blackberries. Sean just hooked up apple tv in our house. And he told me to put the you tube videos from the ipad onto the tv. I was like "what are you talking about." And he ever-so-seriously said "oh my gosh, you are falling behind in technology!" I didn't even know how to respond.

  18. OK, so I have been really curious about Instagram because it seems like everyone is using it except me, so I'm off to download it. Peer pressure and all that...

  19. Raccoons are bad news bears Tiff!

  20. I'm an idiot, I didn't see the raccoon at all. I think that's all I need to tell you right here.

    Also, I love raccoons. The six-year-old inside of me wants a pet one someday. Sadly, though, the six-year-old inside of me will probably name him Ricky. The grown me will fight for Albert, though.

    Also, I'm not sure where I got Albert from, so that's still open for negotiation.

  22. What is a Wendy's VIP?? Can you initiate us?? OMG Racoons are just everywhere... we had one in the office hanging out on the lighting about 2 weeks ago!! I really wondered who the heck let him in without a badge check?? :)

  23. Yay - congrats on being VIP! HAHA! Sounds like a pretty fun weekend to me!! :)

  24. Oh, Tiff! At least you are on Instagram AND Twitter. I've opened a twitter account but have not done one single thing with it. Not sure I fully understand it... As for Instagram, I would love nothing more than to participate but my stupid phone is on the fritz and unable to snap pics. Boo. Oh well, I'll just live vicariously through you and your shots. That's not weird, is it???

  25. I would be pretty gosh darn excited to see Wilson in my tree. A neighbor of mine used to have a pet raccoon that was abandoned as a baby... his name was Troubles. So cute. Sherman looks adorable as always! I'm guessing hes on a strict 'no furniture' diet.

  26. Girl, I love weekends like that! Those are sometimes the absolute best! And what a cute racoon!


  27. Hey hey, I'm one of those Android people missy! Though I wouldn't be if the Iphone was an option at T-Mobile. So I can't get too offended. At any rate, between photos of Sherman and cute babies, I can only say you should have gotten on Instagram sooner! xo


  28. I am terrified of raccoons... damn them looking so cute... I know the truth... they're vicious little meanies!

  29. A that racoon is so cute. Not cute enough to pet though, but cute. Love the little peek into your life! thanks for sharing!

  30. I love Wendy's as well. I love their vanilla frosty's. yummy they're so tasty! I like your new little visitor there. He seems harmless enough. lol Sherman is so photogenic, please tell him I said so. :) I hope you're having a wonderful day Tiff, being your cool self. I so wish we were friends in real life... you know... it would be so wonderful to hang out with you and be silly together and have our dogs play together... maybe someday! You are so AWESOME!

  31. Wendy's is my weakness!! And those dogs are so cute! xoxo

  32. That is so funny!

    We had a possum on our steps not too long ago and my husband kept getting onto me for constantly opening the door, taking photos, tossing out food, etc. I was like, "He's my new pet!" And Josh kept yelling, "No, he's not! He'll bite your face off!" It was great.


  33. Yay! Welcome to Instagram, lady. I just started following along and can't wait to see lots more fun pics from you. Hope your week is off to a fabulous start.

  34. That's pretty cool that you got a picture of that racoon!!

  35. It's great when your friends become tech savy. I think I will ask you all kinds of questions since its not your iPhone.

  36. Wendy's Wendy's? Like the fast food one? I didn't know they had iced coffee! I'll have to check that out! Unless you mean a different Wendy's. Then ignore this.

  37. Oooh, good luck with that little critter!

    FEST (food, style & travel)

  38. love this dog and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
    Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

  39. I have a droid and use instagram but as of late, my droid is SLOW and sucks. I am counting down the days until I can upgrade to an Iphone. SAD, but true. LOL

    and before I had my son, all of my pics on my phone were of my dog. LOL ;) in fact, my wallpaper is of my dog Scruffy, who passed away last summer.

  40. You are ghetto cool, and that is why I love you so much. Stealing internet, guilty ;) How does Sherman feel about your new friend?

  41. Awww I think Winston is cute! We don't have racoons here in NZ. :(
