When I run into people who read my blog I usually get one of two reactions: Either they asked how Bailey’s doing because everyone knows I luuvvv Bailey dog (and Cookie and Corky!) or they ask, “Do you make up the stuff about you and Wizard?”

Umm, if I was going to make up stuff about me and Wizard, wouldn’t I try to make myself look a little better? But now that Wizard is on Face Book and pretty much outted himself as my husband, I have proof. I actually had screen shots, but I deleted them by accident. (Don’t ask…I’m deep in revisions!) So ALREADY on Wizard’s FB we have a battle going over getting a puppy. His cousins and friends are getting in on the act and it’s pretty funny.

So finally Wizard posted this (since I deleted the screen shot before comments,  I recreated it exactly as he posted it)

Wizard got me a puppy

“Ok I give up. I got Jennifer a new puppy. Now is everybody happy??? I have way too much time on hand.”

That is not a real dog! That’s a beloved stuffed dog that belonged to one of my kids when he was little! Here’s the thing, I was WORKING, not paying any attention to Wizard while he did all this. Then the post popped up in my FB feed.

“WIZARD!!!! You can’t do that! That’s not a dog!”

Evil laugher came from the other room. “You saw my post?”

“That’s…” Damn it I won’t laugh. “I’m not laughing!”

“You’re laughing.”

Well of course I was, it was funny. But he can’t make me admit it. “I’m ignoring you. I’m busy WORKING!”

“And laughing.”

I refused to discuss this anymore and kept on working. Then I got an idea. Wizard wants a Mustang and has for years and years. In the comments of his post, I put this:

Shelby GT/SC

“That’s so mean! See the picture for my official response :-)”

An hour later, Wizard yelled at me. “You can’t do that!”

“Ha! Who do you think you’re messing with? It’s on, Wizard!”

Then we both busted up laughing because we have regressed to unsupervised four year olds.

So for those of you who wonder do Witch and Wizard really act like that?  We totally do. We had to be adults all the years we raised our kids. We’re over it and are having way too much fun :-) And by the way, one of his friends said, “Have fun sleeping on the couch, buddy.” LOLOL!!! Wizard CAN have a Mustang, but I get any dog I want with no complaints if he ever gets one. We’ve had that deal for years.

So my weekend plans are working, then making lemon cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting. It was Special K’s birthday this week, and she requested those cupcakes when we go see her on Sunday.  Much as I love her, I’d make anything she wanted!

What are your plans?

    You two are SO much fun. I totally get that you two are just big kids cause hubs and I act goofy too. It’s fun to have fun. I feel bad for those marriages that don’t play around.

    Okay Wizard got you with the puppy but I think you won the battle of FB with the Mustang ;).

    Have you seen the FB video of the baby French Bull Dog who doesn’t want to go to bed? It is SO cute. I posted it on my feed.

    Special K is very lucky. Lemon cupcakes – Yum! Are you all getting together this weekend including the grand pups?

    I don’t know what I’m doing this weekend. I think I may switch over to cold weather clothes and pack up stuff for Easter Seals.

    You have a really great weekend and don’t work too hard :).

    Never doubted it for an instant. You guys are cool. I’m so glad you’re taking this time to be kids again. Silly stuff keeps you young. (Which is why Hubs is so well preserved. LOL)

    No big plans for the weekend. I promised myself I’d have the submission materials for Wish in One Hand ready by Monday, so I’ll be working on that (now that it’s finally tweezed and polished and proofed). After that, I really do need to get some research done for my NaNo novel – but hey, I’ve still got time. Other than that, I’m going to catch up on my reading and maybe start editing Wrongful Termination.

    Ha! I love you guys banter. I had no doubt that you really acted like that. I wish I was better at remembering stuff me and hubster do. Very much the same and always has been.

    Glad you going to see SK. Hope you have a great time.

    Here its supposed to rain all weekend, started today and goes till monday. I’m not complaining. I love the rain. Tend to write better when its raining too. Odd.

    Have a great weekend!

    I, too, would never ask because yeah, you and Wiz are kindergartners. :lol: The Mustang retaliation was perfect! I’ll be working this weekend. Sprout has been sick the last few days (gross details so won’t disclose) so I’m behind if I really want to get BLUE MOON released on Wednesday. And I really want BLUE to release. 8-O I’ll finish up edits and get formatting underway. Monday, he goes into day care, provided he’s not still sick. :-| Mixed emotions, but I am looking forward to getting my routine back.

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Viki, I love that video! I watched it way too much :-)

    I think I won too, LOL!

    Here in So Cal, we don’t really have to switch out our wardrobes for the seasons. We pretty much just add a sweater.

    Hope you have a great weekend too!

    B.E., you have so many projects going, this is an exciting time!

    And here I am stuck on one stupid transition. But never mind, I’ll make it work.

    Marriage should be fun sometimes. It balances the serious moments.

    Have a great weekend!

    Ashlynn, I hear you on remembering. There’s a lot fo stuff that happens that I thing, “Oh I’ll put that on the blog” then forget all about it. I’m sure you and your hubby are a riot.

    Yay for rain and good writing! Enjoy!

    Silver, poor little Sprout. After three kids, it doesn’t take much for me to imagine how gross the details can be. Hope he feels better soon!

    Hope you can get everything done and don’t get sick yourself.

    Viki,I stumbled on that months ago and it’s still my fave. That puppy’s complaints and expression are pricleless. Then he actually goes to sleep!

    I forgot to answer you on Special K’s birthday. I think Middle Son will be out of town, so it’ll just be us, and maybe BLB. I’m not sure, but it’ll be fine however it works out. Plus, I get to play with Cookie and Corky.

    I’m going to make something happen, one way or the other, Jenn. And I have a lot of books to make something happen with. =o)

    Hi Sue, and thank you so much for following the blog! So for the cupcakes, here is the link to the complicated version of the recipe:

    But when I don’t have the time or inclination, I used Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme mix to make the cupcakes, then use frost them with the lemon cream cheese limoncello frosting. Here’s the specific recipe for that:

    2 ounces (½ stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    1 tablespoon limoncello
    2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

    Prepare the cream cheese limoncello frosting. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and cream cheese on medium speed until light and creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the limoncello and beat for an additional minute. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the sifted powdered sugar and beat until fully incorporated and smooth.

    Have a great weekend!
