Four Fun Facts

Just a heads up that you're probably going to experience a lot of radio silence in KALIWOOD for the next couple weeks. Thanksgiving in WV until Sunday then hop on a plane Monday morning for Palm Springs (annual meeting!) for a week. It's quite the whirlwind. So, blogging will take a hit. But, as I always say, I'd rather be out living my life than writing about it. If I have the choice.

Rennay over at Veg in the Ville tagged me in this 4 Fun Facts post! So, let's knock it out, shall we?

And don't forget to enter the Commit To Fit Challenge! It starts next week!

4 Fun Facts

Four names that people call me other than my real name

  1. Kay (Because my name is pronounced 'kay-lee', NOT 'callie')
  2. Babe (By Tim... ewwww.)
  3. K-dawg (because I have serious street cred.)
  4. Kaylin (still a few left who call me my real name.)

Tim Tuesdays

Every time someone says "cute dog!" to us Tim says "its a cat." And when people ask what type of dog Piper is he always says something random like "Dalmatian" or "mountain lion" with a dead serious face. Poor people are so confused.

Me: "It's so weird that you like ugly dogs."
Tim: "I have the same taste in women."

Lennox is growing! As puppies do, I suppose. She's almost 4 months I think. (Honestly I have a hard time keeping track. How do mothers always know that their child is "76 days and 4 hours" old. I'm like hmm... I think a few months or so at least?!

She's almost Piper's size! But still super floppy like puppies are. Which I think is the best thing about them. She also still have the soft, fuzzy fur and smells like a pup. She's SUCH a quick learner. She had sit, shake, and lay down all covered in less than 5 minutes each. We need to set aside more time to dedicate to training, because she's a great student.

F-Bombs for Feminism. Like... Actual F Bombs.

I saw the title in this video and had to watch it.

If you've been here a while you know I've talked about not being afraid to drop the F bomb.

This talks about the F bomb whilst dropping F bombs.

At first I was taken aback. You don't hear kids saying that word every day.

But then I got the point. It's attention-grabbing. It helps get the point across.

We've tried a billion things. Why not this?

And I laughed out loud a couple times.

OK a lot of times.

It's pretty f-ing funny.


But not at work.

Or at work if you have headphones on.

Let me know what you think.

Commit To Fit Challenge

My dear friend (in real life), Rennay, blogs over at Vegetarian in the Ville. If you love fitness advice, race training recaps, and/or witty humor, Rennay is your girl. 

She just became a certified personal trainer and started her own company! (You go girl.) So, naturally, I hammer her for free advice constantly.

A few examples of texts Rennay could receive from me at any point in time:
"If I do laps in the pool with a kickboard does that still count as a workout?"
"I've been on the elliptical for 30 minutes and my toes are now numb."
"How to I make my calves not so huge?"
"How much Pepto can you give a dog?"  - Did I mention she use to be a vet tech too?

Wealth of knowledge, that one.

Tim Tuesdays

Tim: "Who is driving tonight?"
Me: "We could take a cab."
Tim: "Haven't you learned anything from Sex & the City? No cabs available on New Years Eve!"

Me: "Give the pups a pet for me!"
Tim: "Pipe smells like fritos.
Me: "Why??"
Tim: "That's her natural smell."

Me: "I just walked into a tree."
Tim: "No, it grew in your way."

I asked Tim to get me sour skittles. He came out with all of this. 
Apparently they didn't have them and he wanted to make sure he was covered.


Me: "I'm weak in the morning"
Tim: "You're like little mario in the morning then you find the mushroom at lunch."

Me: "Kourtney Kardashian had her baby."
Tim: "A girl, I saw. Don't come to me with that outdated shit."

The First 336 Hours

As most of you know, we recently rescued a puppy. Something I said I would never do after adopting two (almost) adult dogs and knowing they were trouble enough. But alas, I had a moment of weakness and now Lennox brings our dog total to 3.

After bringing three rescues into our lives, I've found something to be consistently true. And I'm going to be 100% honest in admitting this, even though it doesn't paint me in the best light.

There has been a point with each dog, within the first two week, that I thought we made a huge mistake and I wished we hadn't brought them home.

There, I said it. I'm a bad fur mom. But it's the truth.

Piper was young and hyper and whined for several nights. She also went through a fierce chewing phase that seemed like it would never end.

Tim Tuesdays

Me: "How was your cookout at work?"
Tim: "My paper plates were a big hit. Everybody took one."

Text from Tim: "Just got I.D.'d for a rated R movie....again."

Text from Tim: "Full disclosure, I ate 8 cookies in one sitting last night."

Hot Mix, my fish, died today after a week.....Just got a call from Tim.
Me: Hello?
Tim: (in a slow creepy voice) This is Hot Mix calling you from my watery graveeeee.
Me: Too soon dude.

Watching the Golden Globes...
Tim: There's so many good movies that we will never see.
Me: Eh. I really just prefer the more mainstream movies.
Tim: Yea. Like Clueless. And Clueless Goes to College.

Me: I want a milkshake.
Tim: So you can bring all the boys to the yard?

Pre-Planning Visit ~ Tahoe

We will be having our 2015 Summer Meeting at the Hyaty Regency Lake Tahoe. Since this event was contracted before I started with the company, I haven't seen the property. Which, as you may gather, is troublesome considering I'm the one planning the entire event.

So for the handful of events that were contracted BK (before Kali), I've been making quick trips to the destinations to tour the resorts, map out our space, and make any necessary changes.

I flew directly from Phoenix to Reno for a quick one-day trip. From Reno I was driven about an hour, up a mountain, and then back down, to get to Incline Village, NV.

Like I mentioned in my Phoenix/Scottsdale post, I was in awe of a totally new landscape. Where Arizona was desert and mountains, Tahoe was pine trees and mountains. Pine trees as tall as sky scrapers. All around you. It was a sight to see.

I'm kicking myself for not stopping on the way down the mountain. As soon as the trees opened up and I got the first glimpse of the Lake, it literally took my breath away.
