If you spoke to our neighbors.....

{All these are things that I make fun of us for... and assume a neighbor would think. But all in all, we are pretty close with our neighbors... actually Andrew is... and they have nothing but sweet things to say to us... Now... who knows what they say behind closed doors}

-Becky and Elliana live outside. Rain or shine. Cold or hot. I think their only criteria is above 20 degrees and below 100.

-Sometimes we hear the mom singing songs while pushing the little girl in a red wagon. Someone needs to tell her that she isn't quite a talented singer. At all.

-Speaking of said red wagon, it's kind of large. Like... are you going to go abduct children large.

- Andrew grills out in the front.... in his garage.

-And the family of 3? Sometimes lounge around on their driveway with other family members in what looks like to me to be tailgating chairs. Hmm... time to make an investment.

-That mom character.... she sure picks up the mail in some strange outfits. Boxers. Boy undies. Baggy t-shirts {pretty sure she doesn't wear a bra}, a towel on her head, a robe, no shoes, a bikini.

-That Andrew guy, he works in his yard an awful lot. Watering the flowers daily. Mowing the lawn up to 3 times a week. Chopping this. Chopping that. The mom? Nowhere to be seen in the landscaping department.

-They have this swing on one of their trees that their daughters swings on... and all you hear is "weeeeeeee" and "weeeeeeeeeeeeee." Weeee weee weee shhhhhhh.

-And the dog. Lets talk about the dog..... ANNOYING. Sometimes, when they are all outside, they will bring him out and tie him around the basketball goal... and all he does is howwwllll.

-It's funny to watch that family try to leave the house for something. Usually the wife is hollering at the husband "Go back in and get this." "Hurry up, we're running late." "Ohhh Annnnnddrewww."

-One time they set up a sprinkler for their little girl {who clearly doesn't enjoy sprinklers as she has a look of horror on her face}, and no one apparantlely told the mom it probably isn't wise to set it up next to the road where cars drive by. Yaaaa.... it got me wet when I drove by with the windows down.

-The little girl and her mom will walk around the circle holding hands. Which is cute and all. But then you have the mom singing and then the girl's shoes squeaking. You have to go inside to get some peace and quiet around here.

-Lets talk about them taking pictures. IF my wife brought out some sort of stand contraption outside and made us take pictures on a self-time every time we went to some sort of an event... we'd be talking divorce.

-Speaking of pictures, one time, I saw the husband taking pictures of the wife in some outfit. Like she's someone important. Really? Is she going to post some sort of fashion blog? Ha.Ha.Ha.


-Theres a lot of smacking of the butt and groping going on at the house. Someone needs to tell them to take their business inside.

-As crazy as that family is.... they don't seem quite too bad. I think. But hey, we'll take anything compared to the family that lived there before....I mean, if it tells you anything... let me just say... I TP'd their house {prior family} 20 years ago... True Story.

  1. This is just TOO funny. My neighbors probably think we're insane too, I talk to our chocolate lab like a person and many a time have I gotten some strange looks from the old guy next door.

  10. So funny! People grill in their driveways in my subdivision and my sister's too. I always thought it was weird when we moved here, but totally normal I guess.

    And we use tailgating chairs too :)

  15. You sound like a neighbor I want! I'd much rather have singing and squeaky shoes than the beer-infused college parties we currently have! And that's pretty hilarious you toilet papered the old owners! Ha ha

  16. This is awesome... please move into our neighborhood?! LOL I have nothing against our neighbors but our house is roughly 60 years old and all of neighbors are the original owners of their homes... we probably get on their nerves SOO much, so what?! We like to party! :P

  17. Awe, Becky this is so cute! I often wonder what our neighbours think of us as well... Every morning I hope that no one notices me taking the dogs out back since I am almost always wearing something that I probably shouldn't be wearing outside..

  18. Hahha love this. Our neighbors probably think we are psycho dog people considering we have a concrete basset hound statue out front. That I may or may not put Christmas lights on during the holidays...

  22. My neighbors ( I live in a 2 family) think that our dryer sheets are sending horrible chemicals into their appartment and it is making their autistic child misbehave. She has asked us many times to stop using dryer sheets. Well neighbor, NEWSFLASH we own out condo and have rights! Drives us CRAZY. Dont get me wrong I know autism is a serious thing but the smels from our dryer cheets are not causing this child to act out.

  23. Hahahah, this is awesome!! I can only imagine what ours say too, but probably something about the outfits I work out in for sure, or how justin beiber should stop being played so much!

  27. This post made me laugh a lot especially the part "It's funny to watch that family try to leave the house for something... ". It takes us sooo long to leave the house too and we often have to turn back when we get to the end of the road because we've forgotten something!
