Go Ahead and Giggle

in All Posts

Another day, another pile of work to be tackled!


It’s funny where life takes you – I really never imagined myself moonlighting as a secretary at an acupuncture clinic while writing a book.  But it works for us. 


Plus, he looks cute in a lab coat.


Lunch was eaten at the desk; we have a very busy day today, indeed.  I brought us both whole wheat wraps with pinto beans, Mmm Sauce, sprouts, and spinach:


Plus grapes:


Then I went and got a smoothie.  You know those ‘buy-12-get-1-free’ cards that some places give out? Yeah.  I’m a total sucker for that.  Once my card starts to fill up, I want to go back more and more, just for stamps.  Peanut butter and banana:


And now, I’ll leave you with some funny little links for a good laugh.  Because who doesn’t need a break in the middle of the work day?


Cats Who Sit Like Humans

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me June 14, 2011, 1:30 pm

    I am definitely procrastinating…should be doing work at my desk…instead checking google reader one more time.

  • Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty June 14, 2011, 1:30 pm

    Oh my God – that cat photo!!

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen June 14, 2011, 1:36 pm

    That cat is too much! My dog sits like a human all the time, but the cat is way funnier.

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday June 14, 2011, 1:36 pm

    Never heard of the Cats Who Sit Like Humans site.

    I wonder if there is one for dogs. My dog sits like a human all the time. People are always like “Why is she sitting like that??”

    I think she likes to show off her nipples.

  • Heather @ Dietitian on the Run June 14, 2011, 1:47 pm

    Awkward Family Photo totally takes the cake. That could also be labeled “why we’re glad it’s not 1993 anymore” 😉

    My favorite procrastination Google search = Lol cats!

  • Freya June 14, 2011, 1:49 pm

    Aahaha! I’m waiting for my dinner to cook and this is PERFECT procrastination! Thankyeee Caitlin!

  • Heidi @ The Balance Project June 14, 2011, 1:50 pm

  • Leanne (Bride to Mrs,) June 14, 2011, 1:52 pm

  • Liv @ The Salty n' Sweet June 14, 2011, 1:52 pm

    Omg that awkward family photo is wayyyy too awkward!! I die…

    And who in the world would make a site for cats that sit like humans…?

  • Dori June 14, 2011, 1:59 pm

    I LOVE Passive Aggressive Notes and forgot all about it. Haven’t looked at that site in a very long time. Thanks for the reminder!

  • Emily @ Comfortable Home Life June 14, 2011, 1:59 pm

    Ohh I love sprouts in wraps. It really adds a super crunch. I love passive aggressive notes and awkward family photos! Too hilarious!

  • Errign June 14, 2011, 2:17 pm

    LOVE Awkward Family Photos.

  • The Healthy Engineer June 14, 2011, 2:18 pm

    I like going to Dear Blank Please Blank and Damn You Autocorrect and Food Network Humor. They all saved me during the school year.

  • Allison @ Happy Tales June 14, 2011, 2:23 pm

    HAHAA that passive-agressive toiletpaper monster is hilarious!!

  • Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews June 14, 2011, 2:25 pm

    Thanks for the funny pics!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) June 14, 2011, 2:31 pm

    I could write a book on procrastination…although I guess that would take me a while!

    I hear ya on strange jobs. I went to culinary school and while I do get to do what I love, I also moonlight as an office manager for an illustrator (my husband). I guess you do what ya gotta do for the ones you love!

  • Katherina @ Zephyr Runs June 14, 2011, 2:55 pm

    Oh. I could waste so much time on passive aggressive notes!!! I banned myself from http://damnyouautocorrect.com/ because I would spend wayyy too much time flipping through the pages! Thanks for more procrastination outlets 😀

  • Mac June 14, 2011, 2:57 pm

    Passive aggressive note, by far my favorite! Nothing like a laugh in the middle of your day 🙂

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) June 14, 2011, 2:57 pm

    Those family photos are horrendous! That was a good laugh 🙂

  • Sophie @ threetimesf June 14, 2011, 3:29 pm

    HAHA! That cat sat like a human may actually be the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen – must go and look up more! 🙂

  • Mikaela June 14, 2011, 3:35 pm

    I know the men in that photo….. They won most outrageous twins at the twin convention in Ohio a long time ago (one of them has since passed away)

    • CaitlinHTP June 14, 2011, 9:14 pm

      Aw, RIP most outrageous twin!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg June 14, 2011, 3:42 pm

    I love awkward family photos and regretsy — they are hilarious! I also like Food Network Humor.

  • Julie - StressStories June 14, 2011, 3:57 pm

    Caitlin I’ve been wanting to ask you for some time now: Do you have any tips for handling working with your husband and being together for so much time each day? I’m not saying that it has to be hard to handle, but just if there are any things you do in order not to get tired of each other?
    The smoothie sounds yummy. You should try PB, banana and spinach – amazing!

    • CaitlinHTP June 14, 2011, 4:49 pm

      Hahah oh, but it can be hard to handle 🙂 I think the biggest thing for any relationship is that you really have to appreciate each other. I think it’s very easy to assume that YOU are doing more work and YOU are working harder and feel like the other person does not acknowledge your efforts. I literally try to go out of my way and say, “I appreciate that you did X, Y, and Z” even if I don’t feel like he’s acknowledging my work in that moment. Because he will eventually. Keeping score is BAD BAD BAD for relationships.

  • monicanelsonfitness June 14, 2011, 3:57 pm

    awesome pics!

    busy bee today!

  • Ashley @ Thefitacademic June 14, 2011, 4:06 pm

    haha, I love the link for the awkward family photos! Hilarious!!!

  • Marlow June 14, 2011, 4:08 pm

    I have been PRO-crastinating today watching My Drunk Kitchen. She is freakin’ hilarious!

  • Abby June 14, 2011, 4:18 pm

    I love the Passive Aggressive Notes! 🙂 Thanks for helping me procrastinate this afternoon! lol.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife June 14, 2011, 4:29 pm

    I totally love those wraps. They look simply amazing!!

  • Lindsay @ In Sweetness and In Health June 14, 2011, 4:45 pm

    Oh my gosh those are awesome! The cats who sit like humans are so funny 🙂

  • Kelly @foodiefresh June 14, 2011, 4:56 pm

    My aunt has one of those cats. He’s 17 years old and has always sat like that. And he’s pretty much the weirdest cat ever.

  • Melodie June 14, 2011, 5:26 pm

    Oh my goodness, I have a cat that sits like a human! His name is Watson and he is a little on the crazy side 🙂 He will actually fall asleep sitting like that! It is so hilarious!

  • Michelle (The Runner's Plate) June 14, 2011, 5:41 pm

    I agree that it is crazy where life takes you! That’s why I’ve learned I can’t plan too far in advance because NOTHING works out the way I planned!!

  • Shae June 14, 2011, 6:02 pm

    Have you ever seen that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine goes to a sub place to get her card stamped just to get the free sub and a free sailor hat? And she doesn’t even LIKE the subs but wants the free gift? Heheheh. I love those punch cards.

  • Libbie June 14, 2011, 6:07 pm

    Awkward Family Photos is my favorite! I also love http://www.menwholooklikekennyrogers.com/halloffame.html

    Funny stuff!


  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) June 14, 2011, 6:12 pm

    haha I love those websites!!!

  • Aja June 14, 2011, 6:12 pm

    Bad portraits are my favorite. My photo teacher always shows a set to her first level students when they start their portrait project. For some reason, holding a cat and having crazy backgrounds was a hit for a while.
    Life is crazy, though.

  • Molly @ RDexposed June 14, 2011, 6:18 pm

    I don’t like cats, but I can enjoy awkward cat pictures! Bring back 80’s fashion. Now.

  • Parita June 14, 2011, 7:02 pm

    A coworker of mine showed me the awkward family photos site a couple of years ago…best day at work EVER!

  • Alaina June 14, 2011, 7:47 pm

    Oh, I am totally going to enjoy these websites! Thank you!!

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss June 14, 2011, 9:02 pm

    lmnho..I love looking at funny photos. I have an app on my Droid that has TONS of them. I’ll waste time before bed making myself laugh for a solid 30 minutes before drifting off.

  • Brenda@Year25 June 14, 2011, 10:47 pm

    You can always count on Awkward Family Photos for a good laugh!

  • Khushboo June 15, 2011, 3:39 am

    hahah these family photos are hilarious…and awkward!! haha

  • Amber K June 15, 2011, 12:16 pm

    Such great photos!

    And I saw your comment about how keeping score is bad for relationships and I have to completely agree with that! Showing people you appreciate them is important in any relationship I think.

  • Krista June 16, 2011, 3:22 pm

    I’m gonna have to try that toilet paper one at my house!!!
