corn chips... the BIG ones... the SCOOPS!!!
that is what this smells like:S

(is this not the cutest puppy dog paw you've ever seen:)

nice, huh???
evidently this smell is not unique to my maggie...

the notorious d says ella's smell the same!!!

(ella sleeping with mr. notorious d:)

anyway, i've been sleeping with THAT in my face since november.
i have fallen asleep to the smell of a "super bowl" party
for nearly 8 months now.


this is the view i've seen before shutting my eyes
each of those nights!!!

(my little luv gives a whole new meaning to the words
"frito lay")

well, after taking this last picture of her...

(God, i love this smelly footed dog!!!)

i scooped her up and kennelled her...

for four nights, she has slept soundly in her kennel!!!

for four nights, john and i have slept soundly in our bed!!!

the only thing i have smelled???

downy fabric softener!!!



love and blessings,
dani xx

ps... jennifer, my name is dani b, and i am a "real blogger"!!!

(can you believe she accused me of being a "real blogger"???)

i awoke john taking those pictures:b

"what the he!! are you doing???" he asked.
"taking pictures for my blog..." i responded.

there were a couple more clicks and flashes
as well as...
2 or 3 more expletives!!!

but, we are still happily married:D
and able to spoon again:)

jennifer has an intervention going on for me over at half full life!!!

Way to go Dani ~ You did it!!
I am so glad that you are ALL sleeping soundly now and Maggie doesn't sound like she has been affected by it!!!
Wishing you many more pecaefull and sweet smelling nights!!
love and hugs ~ Tabitha XXX

dani said...

tabitha, she has gotten in her kennel all by herself after i put her in the first night. she has been fine with it:D and we have been "more than fine" with it!!!
her kennel in in our bedroom so that helps.
she and john still have their nightly snore-off, but i learned a very long time ago how to sleep through that:b

I knew it! I just knew it!
I think I wet my pants laughing so hard!
Hope your husband doesn't put YOU in the kennel too!

dani said...

he probably wanted to, jenn!!! it was pretty funny:b

Kat said...

She does smell like fritos, but I wouldn't say she smells good enough to eat haha :P
Dad was cracking me up last night when you were taking those pictures hehe

Just thought you should know I'm having an "intervention" for you over at "half full life"!


dani said...

but you know she's sweet enough to eat, katherine!!!

dani said...

jenn's trying to make me go to rehab!!!
I said no, no, no!!!

Jan said...

I would have done the same thing Dani. Our dog sleeps with us too, we should all take pictures of the poses and all of our husbands would probably tell us to stop blogging.

Thanks for sharing this hilarious post.

dani said...

lol!!! does your pup's feet smell like corn chips as well???

HannahKate said...

Bahhahahha that's so true.
And I've always thought her breath smells like rotten peaches :/
But that's just
She just stinks in general, but you still have to love her :D


dani said...

hannah, she's smelling sweet right now; she just received her monday bath!!!

Hello Dani, and thank you for taking my little quiz. I am a little bit wonkers when it comes to blogging, but then when I started my store on etsy I was the same way with that too, and now I barely glance at it. Anyway where would this world be without the easily fasinated? Please come back and visit, I always leave the light on!

Tanya said...

I'm so proud of you!!! what is it husbands!!! surely by now when they are woken by a flash going off they know what we're up to lol!!!! D you must be soooo happy to have your bed back & smelling so sweet too!!
Isn't it amazing what one can learn to sleep through!

Have a lovely night!!!

Tanya xx

dani said...

it was a fun quiz, suz:) i will definitely return!!!

dani said...

tanya, maggie has gotten a bad rap in this blog... lol, she doesn't smell like corn chips EVERY night!!! but, as it gets closer to monday (bath day) she begins to smell rather frito'ish:S
it has been nice, however, being able to move under the covers and have more than 12 inches of bed space.
as i said...

Michelle A. said...

Had to pop over from my sister's blog - too fun dani!

dani said...

i am so happy you did, michelle:) feel free to return anytime!!!

Little Sweethearts said...

Well I must say that I didn't think you'd actually be able to sleep without Maggie! Good for you - for all of you.


dani said...

my sentiments exactly, tania!!!

E and T said...

Hi Dani

You did it - yahoooo!

Now everyone gets a good night's sleep. Here's wishing you many peaceful nights where you wake up feeling refreshed, minus your gorgeous princess in your bed.

Lots of love and hugs

PS Dani, I think that last baby belly shot in my blog is just the shape of my belly - no limbs poking out, but I would love to get a picture where you can see bumps and lumps sticking out. I can't say we've seen definitive shapes - like a hand or foot, how beautiful would that be.

WOW! Way to go! Getting your dog out of the bed with you only to have room to snuggle with your hubby! :)

dani said...

it has been nice, elise, and even better... she hasn't cried (that's what i feared). we have slept VERY well:)
i guess it was just the way the light was hitting your tummy... i was like, "AWWWWWWWWWWWWE!!!" i was just sure it was mini's heel or something. i have seen pictures of visable hands and feet, and, yes, they are totally gorgeous...
i hope you are sleeping well. sweet dreams:)

dani said...

you've got that right, erin:) i feel like a new woman!!!
ps your bib is adorable:D

Kellan said...

Way to go! It was probably time - right?

Have a good day - Kellan

dani said...

Purple Teacup said...

I love the super bowl party remark- I laughed so loud I woke up Annie who is sleeping by my leg, but I don't know what she smells like....

dani said...

shannon, maggie is smelling pretty good right now. she had a shower last night... but she definitely smells like corn chips about the time she needs a bath... every time!!!
