Towel Tales

I have learned since saying "yes" to Bob, in the most ridiculous way, ("Um, uh, oh, um, well, I don't see why not!" to which he replied, "What kind of answer is THAT?"... It's the  kind of answer one gives when one thinks the other person is going to say we shouldn't see each other any more, and instead he proposes) that marriage takes compromise.

Now, before asking my question, I'm posting sort-of the color of towels Bob chose for himself: (the picture does not do them justice. He was looking for navy blue, but couldn't find it, so settled on black. I must have had my flash turned up too high.)
And the towels I chose for myself:

So now to my question - How do you compromise to find shared bathroom/guest towels from THESE disparate tastes?

Well, Bob came up with a solution: Caucasian colored towels.

I mean, how can we argue against our own skin color?
What color of towels would you put in your bathroom?

Cake? Anyone? Apparently, Fingers Allowed...

Someone brought cake to share at work.
Someone forgot to bring a knife.
Would you dig in with your bare hands to get your share?

Gloppy Green New Year's Resolution

Yes, I want to eat healthier food this year! (Does this pile of, um, green goo count?)
No, it's not that! It's a protein shake, people! 
It's a spilled protein shake that I made myself. After I drank some, I set down the container, WITH LID, but the lid must not have been snapped down tightly.
The next time I looked, my container was tipped over and a lot of my lovely green drink was on the floor!
Fortunately, it nearly matches the carpet, so clean up was easy squeezy.
Now I'm thinking I need to learn a lesson from this... make smaller shakes? Or drink it all in one sitting?
What would you do?

After Santa Parks His Sleigh

You thought Santa parked his sleigh and hung out at the North Pole after Christmas?
Nah. He hits the streets in a red car (check out the white bearded guy on the grill!) with antlers (a bit hard to spot... subtle, yet effective) and tracks down the best after-Christmas sales!
What do you like to do after Christmas?

When Nature Calls, even Elves Gotta Go!

I didn't know what an Elf on the Shelf was until I visited my son's house and accidentally touched the leg of a red-suited elf hanging from a wire strung across the ceiling.
"NO!" my grandchildren screamed. "If you touch him, he'll go away!" 
Well, apparently there is a second-chance clause for uneducated Grammys. After spending a day with a bandage on his leg, Freddy was back to moving around the house at night.
(Can I lock my door?)
Here he is on the back of the toilet, poised over a cup with a bit of yellow liquid in the bottom, with the illuminating words, "Let it go, let it go, don't hold it back anymore! Hehehe. Freddy" written on the toilet lid.
(I don't know that Freddy is going to be getting any presents. Does his mama know he's writing on toilets, I wonder?)
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? 
Do you have a similar Christmas tradition?

Festival of Trees!

My friend Karen gave me a ticket to The Festival of Trees! Besides the amazing array of creatively decorated trees, there was a gorgeous castle entry that made me feel like a pink-coated princess!
It was so helpful to get me into the Christmas spirit!

I'm so glad for friends, and castles, and pink, warm coats!
What are you glad for?

Even the Chips are in a Christmas Mood!

Even the chips are in a Christmas mood!

(Perhaps we should help them celebrate... salsa is red and green, too, heh?)
